Here's what hate looks like
Posted by: Chris
I am not one of those who believes opposition to gay rights is always, or even mostly, motivated by hate. The "No H8" campaign, while creative, is an example of caricature and bumper-stickering an issue that is way too complex for pretty celebrity pics.
But sometimes hate is the only explanation, and you can see it on the faces of those in Uganda who clamor for a new law that would execute sexually-active gay people and imprison those who fail to report them. In a country that already considers homosexuality a criminal offense, this new effort is an attempt at genocide, pure and simple, made all the more perverse since it's supposedly Bible-based.
A protest in favor of it captures the anger, the fear and the hate.
