In Puerto Rico this past weekend, someone brutally murdered a 19-year-old gay man by decapitating, dismembering, and burning him.
In a world in which the life of a gay man mattered like how the lives of human beings matter, those charged with protecting society would would strongly condemn such a murder.
In our world, the police investigator responding to this case issued a statement saying "people who lead this type of lifestyle need to be aware that this will happen."
No word of unconditional condemnation from US anti-gays including the National Organization for Marriage, Americans For Truth [sic] About Homosexuality, or Focus on the Family. No unconditional condemnation, either, from anti-gay blogging groups Digital Network Army or Opine Editorials. Maybe they are all too busy mourning the loads of Christians who are now being tortured, murdered, and all-around persecuted because of the passage of the new federal hate crimes law that includes sexual orientation as a protected category.
Rest in piece George Steven Mercado Lopez. I'm sorry I don't have more to say than that, dear boy. But what else is there to say that does not put more aggression into the world?
