Rise in Hate Crimes after Passage of Prop. 8

Fritz writes an excellent piece on the surge in hate crimes against gays and lesbians as a result of the passage of Prop. 8 in Santa Clara County.  Am I surprised?  No.  I keep reading these ridiculous accounts about so-called Christians being harassed by gays and lesbians during the Yes on Hate campaign in Oct. and Nov. and afterwards.  You can read the original article here at the Mercury News.  This is what happens when one group is demonized over and over again.  This is what happens when one group is told that they are not and cannot be equal.  All you Yes on 8ers should be ashamed of yourselves and you should get on your knees and pray for forgiveness. 

 

And in related news, President Obama joins the U.S. to the rest of the civilized countries and will sign the U.N. Declaration that will decriminalize homosexuality.  That horrible ex-president we just had refused to sign it because it could have screwed with some of the anti-gay laws here in the U.S.  It will be interesting to see if this has any impact on things here.
