Is there any reason besides religion to oppose same sex relationships? Because I'm having a really big problem reconciling the idea that being gay is HORRIBLE and BAD and a SIN but stripping a woman naked, beating her, binding her with zip ties, carving hateful words into her skin, and attempting to burn her alive is good Christian behavior.

WTF is wrong is, they hate gay people. Usually because of religion - either religious training in their youth, or their religion as adults.

Gays know - people hate us. Just because people pretend to "be okay" with us being gay, or don't openly act like this, it's clear - a helluvalotta people, deep down, hate us and wish they had the balls to be like the WBC folks or these turds.

Sad, but true.

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.

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.

Not even if they follow Jesus Christ and their church's interpretation of the Bible with regards to homosexuality? I suppose they aren't American either.

Jesus was strangely silent on the issue of homosexuality. He was pretty heavy with the `let he who is without sin cast the first stone', `love thy neighbor' stuff though.

Well THERE'S your problem.

Yep, the OT is kinda like the Yellow Pages of hate and commandments. It's got a listing for everything under the sun.

My best wishes for your friend's quick and full recovery, Subby.

And my best wishes for the swift apprehension, speedy trial and long, slow prison term for her attackers.

I'm so sorry, Subby. Incidents such as this make me want to cry.

We should take up a collection to send her to a gay-friendly place such as L.A. or S.F.

I hate to be that guy but.......this could be self inflicted. Kind of like that woman who threw acid in her own face. I was looking at pics of the messages left on her walls. Pretty good printing for spray paint. I mean if you're an attacker all stoked up smashing doors in committing violence and arson.......

In one way I hope I am wrong, that nobody could contrive this, OTOH I hope I am right that nobody would be sick enough to storm somebody's house and mutilate her because she's gay.

Yup, let's just banish all the people with the audacity to be attracted to members of their own sex to certain regions in the country, you know, so we can keep an eye on 'em.
 
2012-07-24 12:20:24 AM
Submitter, can you keep up informed how the investigation is going on this incident? I just stunned three men attacked a woman in her home and left anti-gay slurs on her. Normally one sees male on male violence involving gays, bisexuals, and transgenders, not male on female. Breaking in and arson are serious felonies, beyond simple assault.
 
2012-07-24 12:27:34 AM
I am very sorry for all your friend has had to endure and will endure as a result of this, Subby. I hope the people responsible for this attack meet the justice they deserve quickly.

Keep us informed, okay?

That does seem pretty neat to me, but I don't frequently vandalize peoples' houses after attacking them, so I'm no expert. I think I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

It doesn't necessarily mean self inflicted, it could be someone she knows, making this attack and the message a personal one. however, I would think if someone was trying to spread a particular message they would want to spray paint the outside of the house to shame the individual or send a message to everyone else in the neighborhood

Isn't it a bit hard to bind your own feet and hands with zip ties, though? I've never used them, but that doesn't sound easy.

I don't imagine it would be that hard. You've got free use of your hands to do the feet with, then for the hands, you use your teeth to tighten them. I swear I saw a movie character do it once, not that that proves anything.

No harm in being skeptical, although I would imagine if someone was using the attack to send a message they would take a breath, steady their hand and make sure the message was legible.

The horrible things people do to one another can easily make one lose hope in humanity. Hopefully the community (and maybe Farkers - if info arises on how we can donate/help) can rally around this woman and demonstrate that the vast majority of the world isn't peopled by hate-filled, violent individuals.

Hope your friend gets all the help she needs, subby.

Denver and Boulder are pretty safe and not as dramatic a move from Lincoln as California.

If your friend takes any kind of escape option and you contact me (eip) in advance we can bring a few folks to help with the move. Safety in numbers and all that. I'd be willing to burn a weekend to help someone get out of a place like that.

Someone, someday, is going to attack a group of us lousy queers, and when we retaliate, it will reverberate outward like a large stone thrown in the middle of a pond. And it's going to make Stonewall look absolutely insignificant.

The bad part is it's going to make us even more hated, but I think it's inevitable.

It's times like this when I realize that a West Coast perspective isn't the norm. Damn, that's too bad. I can't stand to spend time around these inbred, ignorant people that think behavior like this is OK. They terrify me and I'm a straight white woman.
Find out who did this and toss some weed in their car. It's illegal there right?

Not if you're white, then it's just a stern talking to and they call your mom. Unless Nebraska has changed since my last visit, which this story would tend to suggest it hasn't.

Not everyone in the flyovers thinks this is ok. Hence the recommendation for Denver or Boulder.

However this plays out, humanity doesn't win.

I'd say she's a real trooper if she did this for attention. The other cases I remember, like the Jewish girl painting swastikas on her dorm room door or that ridiculous "B" woman from the last election just sort of half-assed it. This woman was naked and bound and screaming.

Then again, that census worker hung himself and tried to blame it on the Tea Party, which is pretty hard core. Then again again, someone beat Matthew Shepard to death for fun, and gays are routinely beaten across the US because of their sexual orientation.

What's farked up is that just a few short years ago, it wouldn't even occur to anyone to think she was lying, and because some assholes wanted attention, it's a possibility.

Most everyone I know doesn't really care if someone is gay or not. Though I admit I tend to shun bigots, so my sample isn't likely representative.

The people who did this, however, are in their own special class of sick and twisted. I don't think they represent " a helluvalotta people", deep down or otherwise.

And I sincerely hope your friend recovers as best she can, subby.
