I know everyone is thinking it, so I'll be the first to come out and say it.

Most of the time when something like this happens, the "victim" has done it to themself either for attention or to try to get sympathy for their cause. Think back to the Jewish professor who got caught spraypainting swastikas on her house and then reporting it as a hate crime as an example.

Has that been looked into here?

Holy crap, subby. My condolences for your friend, and nothing but anger towards her attackers.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Church is the people. That's what Christians always say. Until something like this happens. Then it's an "isolated case" and No True Christian.


You know - I have never heard it put this way, and as I am no longer a church-goer, never much thought about it, but this is actually a fair point to make.

I really hope the perps are caught, because if this situation is as ive read, its bad.

The hate mongers on TV and Radio (and you can guess who they are, plus the local minor/regional idiots) are inciting the low-IQ and easily scared morons to action.

This will result in people who have fark-all to do with anything in getting hurt or killed, and that is so perverse it just boggles the mind. At least the mind of a rational adult.

Since 911 it seems like the average American's psyche has been so shocked that the weaker among us has become much more easily lead and convinced to commit acts of unspeakable evil on people, without the consideration that they are truly hurting someone.

Its farking sick.

Yeah, but my post was more intelligent and I also correctly pointed out that we were all thinking this in the back of our minds. Were the anti-gay slurs carved into her backwards, like that "B" on the girl who claimed two guys carved it onto her face during the last election?

the story reads damn odd and makes one wonder. reads like bullshiat to me. complete with a trio of ninjas and a gas source fire that only causes $200 damage. but it's nice to see lots of people tossing hate at christians even though they have no idea who did the alleged deed. godless heathens.

Put me down for a big ol' THIS.

I'm with you guys.


No kidding. Self-inflicted hoax all the way. No assailants get together to carve "anti-gay slurs" in a stranger, gay or not. It's something a closet crazy person THINKS others would do, it's a bizarre fantasy.

And it just keeps going- started a fire which conveniently didn't burn the place down. Come on. Who throws gasoline around and DOESN'T make a real fire?? You gotta pay close attention to just how you spill it to NOT burn the place down. Mysterious strangers who spill only a small, controlled amount of gasoline and light it and walk away? Naaaaw.

I'm not saying people aren't capable of doing horrible things. And there are people who thing gays should DIAF and aren't beyond doing horrible things under the wrong circumstances. But this ain't that. This is a delusional fantasy.

That's not really for you to say. I understand not wanting to be associated with this kind of filth, but if they say they're christian, then they are christian. They may be really bad at BEING Christian, but it's not like there's an authoritity with the power to kick out bad examples from the entire suite of Christian religions.


I can say I'm a Martian, but it does not make me a Martian.
Hopefully they catch these guys and let them experience life in the general population of a federal prison.

Remember the expression attributed to Edmund Burke: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." The contempt of all good people against this outrage must be made clear.

I've always wondered how someone can follow the Old Testament and still follow the New Testament, but that's probably a different discussion. My own viewing of the bible found only one reference, if vague, that Jesus could have said anything about homosexuality. I forget what passage it is, but there is a part where Jesus says the old laws of the bible are still in effect or some such idea. This is the only reference I could possibly think of where the connection could b made.

Still, the only time Jesus called for violence, well resorted to it, was removing money changers from the temple. Why someone would think that Jesus would some how approve of this level, or any level of violence would have to go back to the top idea. It sickens me as I'm sure it does everyone else. Most of my family, sadly, would follow the non violent ideas this sort of thinking pushes. Worse yet, I'm afraid some of the younger generation may think what occurred here is the right step. Never understood the level of hate. Just seems so wrong to hate someone for how they're born.

2/10 for just asking questions. I'd give it more, but people have already expressed the sentiment legitimately without immediately resorting to confirmation bias. Most? Most? I can think of several high media exposure attacks on gays in the past 5 years, some of which left bodies. You've got one chick with acid. I can find public record of any number of cross burnings and church vandalisms for your professor. Most? That's not even the 'I'd almost rather believe it was fake than that someone could do this' from above, that's just trying your damnedest to cast aspersions.

Plus, if she didn't do it, she probably deserved it for that short skirt she was wearing, amirite?

Seriously, the number of people that jumped to the "she did it herself" conclusion is almost as sickening as the crime.

Seeing how it's becoming more and more believable that she did it to herself, I think this is going to be a victory for gay-haters because of the undermining it will do to the gay agenda when the (probable) truth comes out that it is in fact self-inflicted.

If a believer thinks something is bad, then anyone who practices that thing is thus bad, too. And thus, not human. And thus, anything they get is what's coming to them. And if it's them that gives them what's coming, so much the better.

Message to subby's friend, if subby has a chance to see this and show it to her:

I'm sorry you had to go through such a horrible experience. I'm ashamed that we can do this to each other. From what I read in the article, it sounds like you're a good neighbor, and a good friend. Please know that there are many of us who support you not just as a neighbor, or coworker, or friend, or fellow farker, but also as supporters of LGBT Americans looking to live their lives and be treated equally. Please also know that our number is growing, and that it's only a matter of time before this country's attitudes towards you pass by just like it's attitudes about slavery and women's rights also passed by. I wish you the best in your recovery.

It's not limited to religion, of course, but it seems more prevalent among the religious: it's the human tendency to follow the rules one agrees with while ignoring the rules one doesn't agree with. If a "religious" person doesn't like gay people, they claim to be following their religious beliefs when they express such distaste. Yet, their religious rules against assault aren't informing their behavior. Again, this isn't limited to religious people, but they do seem to have an especial propensity for it.
