Chilling Hate Shows We Need Change

You may have heard the awful story about how a woman arrested in Arizona for killing bicyclist Paul L'Ecuyer laughing with a friend in a tape-recorded jailhouse phone call about the fact her victim was gay. A friend tells Melissa Arrington she deserves "a medal and a fucking parade because you took out a fag, a cyclist, a tree hugger and a Frenchman in one shot."

Here is the Audio of that call.

No sense of remorse or wrong doing. Sound like anyone you know? It's time we made thinking like this history, and verbalize that those who try to promote this thinking are simply villians.

It sounds scarily similar to other homobigots. When our opponents say we are being self-centered and having to many "feelings" they forget the reality that every single day people try to justify their hateful actions because the victim was gay, or black, or this-or-that nationality or religion. In the end, it's another innocent life lost on that basis.

Do you mind if I post this on my blog, as well?
