    The absurdity of "hate crime" law aside, were there not enough Christians in those states to keep the law from being enacted?

    Your dick will not be cut off and your body dragged through the streets as is what happens over seas.

    You will not be beaten and set on fire in a ditch while still alive as happans overseas.

    Your country will never claim that gays do not exist while escorting you and your lover to a shower room to be shot, as is what happens in Iran.

    No, Christians do not execute gays. We might have an opinion but you will live to tell your friends how stupid you think we are.
    Oh really?

    According to many Christians' interpretations of the Bible, killings gays is in fact sanctioned by their god. It may not be as organized here as it is in some places, but it certainly happens. Every day. It is so common I've even seen it myself. There was a gay kid at my high school who was dragged into the field and beaten so badly he spent 2 weeks in the hospital.

    Christians absolutely beat and kill gays. Say it's wrong if you like, but if you simply pretend it isn't happening, you're no better than the Muslim extremists you hate.

    They say "gays don't exist."

    You say "we don't kill gays in America."

    Both are self-delusion.

    He didn't actually say that either, did He? And forgive does not mean ignore. I

    Please don't make me deal with apologetics for people who kill based on bigotry. Please. I like you.

    Um, what? If you read the stats, this isn't "exceptional." It literally happens every day. And those are just the reported numbers.

    Where in your link is the stat on homosexuals murdered by Christians?

    I found this, but nothing related to anything at all in your post.

    In 2006, 1,393 hate and bias incidents against lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) victims were reported to the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs. These incidents affected 1,672 victims, committed by 2,365 offenders. (New York: National Coalition of Anti-Violence Program, 2007.

    ...or condone, or accept, or forget, or say it's exactly like 'marriage'.....


    It just means you don't hold a grudge against that person for your own mental health. Forgiving someone is so much more about you than it is them.

    And its a natural reaction. The thought of a guy with another guy is BEYOND disgusting. Oddly enough the gay pride parade in chicago is playing in the background as I type this

    I like you, too, but I cannot agree that Christians absolutely beat and kill gays.

    You post that as if churches send the faithful out every Sunday to commit murder. It just doesn't happen.
