Since I started blogging in 2006 not a day goes by that on one or more of the “popular” LGBT blogs or websites rhetoric is written regarding the Family Research Council, AFA, NOM and any other group or individual which is to be seen as anti-LGBT in one form or another. The same can be said in other forms of LGBT media including terrestrial and satellite radio and video presentations on YouTube and the like.
These articles, postings and opines go well beyond the act of reporting news and events, often over the top with as much hate and venom spewed as those they condemn.
And those who leave comments or contribute to spoken word the same way are equally at fault.
What fault ?
The fault of setting an atmosphere so volatile that finally an explosion has taken place.
A yet to be determined state of mind of the alleged shooter will most likely in part be attributed to what he has read, heard and seen in the LGBT media, either professional or novice, regarding FRC and the like.
And it’s not just the previous at fault but also GLAAD, HRC, The Lesbian and Gay Task Force, other groups and individual activists who when combined with the aforementioned create a brainwashing of “them against us”.
Surely those mentioned did not put the gun in the shooter’s hand, but, and though they collectively do not have the courage to look deep within themselves or look in the mirror nor look into their archives for fear of what they may see, they certainly aided in pulling the trigger.
And that my friends is culpability.
Quite frankly I’m surprised it has taken this long to happen.
