I just did a cut+paste from the Chris Roper blog on news dot 24:

Murder, he wrote.

I don’ t want to keep bashing away at this whole gay thing - that' s Jon Qwelane' s job - but a report about the shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in the US brings a couple of truths home.
Firstly, this is the kind of action that stems directly from the bigoted utterances of people like Jon Qwelane and Robert Mugabe - a man walks into a church and kills two adults and wounds seven others, because he hates gays and liberals.

CNN reports, " Adkisson, 58, of Powell, Tennessee, walked into the church' s sanctuary during a children' s musical performance and fired a shotgun before being overpowered by congregants and arrested.
" According to Out &  About, a gay newspaper based in Nashville, Tennessee, the church was home to several gay and gay-friendly groups and recently posted a " gays welcome"  sign " as part of its long-range planning to conduct more outreach and welcome"  to gay men and lesbians." 

Why can people like Qwelane not see the simple, self-evident truth - you either have constitutionally guaranteed human rights for all people, no matter whether you agree with their lifestyle, state of being or way of living, or else you have no rights. All you have is crazies with guns deciding that god wants them to kill gay, blacks, left-handed people and blathering columnists.

(Remember, you can join the " Jon Qwelane is so CUTE!!!"  group on facebook, everyone welcome. Or if you' re happy to go with a lesser columnist, you can join the Chris Roper' s columns facebook group.)
