Hate is never an answer, how can one justify such a horrid act. A guy rapes a who is not conscience and gets six months because she can't remember, and some people think that her intoxication justifies such a violation. But by that standard if you are drunk it's okay for someone to rob you? It's okay to be taken advantage of when you are unaware. If you think so, then you are worse than someone who mistakenly drank too much. This guy was homophobic and fears something that has nothing to do with him. So his answer is to kill what he cannot understand. By this standard, we have the right to kill others because they are not like us? So does that give them the right to kill us because we are not like them? Where does this logic end? We are by all accounts the caretakers of this world. And look at how we take care of it. By pointing the finger at someone, rather than looking at ourselves. This man killed gay people because he saw it as a threat, so his answer was to become a threat himself. If anyone agrees with this action, you need to look at yourself. We are all in the same boat here, your religion, beliefs, values or whatever should never let you feel like you are superior to others. If so, then you think you are God because you feel like you have a right to judge. We can't see all the things another person is going through, we can't even figure ourselves out. So what right do we have to judge? Like Jesus said, "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" Instead have compassion for others because we are all in the same boat here. We are all trying to find ourselves in this crazy world. It takes more character to be understanding than to allow your fears to understand for you. Sad. So sad.
