hate, actualized

All we’re saying is, fags should burn in hell.  But golly gee, we didn’t expect you’d take us literally!

 

Scott Lively, Caleb Lee Brundidge, and Don Schmierer are apparently flabbergasted that their message of hate is on the road to becoming actual legislation.  Schmierer feels “duped,” but by whom?  Why?  Ugandan policymakers are just taking his message and applying a consequence: death.

 

Melissa McEwan eloquently sums it up better than I:

At best, they colluded with murderous bigots because they were too uninformed, cavalier, daft, hasty, greedy, eager, selfish, irresponsible, ignorant. Too something to understand what the fuck they were doing.

At worst, they colluded with murderous bigots because deep in their hard, dark little hearts, in places they never reveal in press releases, they don’t much care if gay people die, as long as their names aren’t anywhere near the death warrant.

But, as the mother of a good friend of mine recently opined, in response to her brother’s sexist, illogical opinion: “It’s just a philosophy.  Everyone has a different philosophy.”  Too bad “philosophies” full of oppression and hate translate into actual oppression and actual hate toward actual people.
