To maintain political power, the right wingnuts continually beat the drum of hatred for Gay people. It is time for Christians and good people in this country to call out their flawed "preaching" and their vile rhetoric. These people need to know that their words and teachings have consequences. When you pound this drum loud and long enough, CHILDREN DIE.
Earlier in the week, a 21 year-old Tampa man went on trial for murdering his 3-year old son. Apparently the father, Ronnie Paris Jr., pummeled his boy to death because he thought the boy might be gay.
According to charges, Paris decided that the way to cope with this fear was to box with the child, slapping him until the boy either cried or wet himself. Once Paris threw his son against the wall.
Eventually, the boy lapsed into a coma and was rushed to a hospital. Six days later he was removed from life support and died.
This is the result of teaching people to hate.
