Relevant to whom?
After the FRC
spent a lot of money lobbing in favor of the death penalty for gay people
Uganda they were listed as a hate group. After that a FRC security guard
Shooting a security guard is the wrong thing to do and the shooter is
jail time for it. Causing people to be killed by unjust laws in Uganda is

I couldn't agree more.
You've generalised about ALL people who disagree with same sex marriage,
because some nut jobs made death threats against a young actor.
A nut job shoots a security guard outside a FRC building, and you don't see
the irony? Should I be worried about YOU shooting me because of my beliefs?
Do you believe that I would make death threats against somebody ASSOCIATED
with a TV show, because the TV show had a same-sex couple?
YOU'RE drawing that line.
