Why do some people say homophobic people are closet cases ?

In addition to Richard's excellent answer (tip of my hat), we say gay bashers are closeted gay men because we've seen it play out a whole lot of times, in people we know, religious leaders we trust, and politicians we elect.
Fairly often the people who are most vocal and vehement about the evil gays are in fact themselves gay, or fighting gay urges. Poor dudes hate themselves.
