Nebraska woman tied up, mutilated, in anti-gay hate crime, police say

Apparently in Nebraska, three masked men broke into a woman’s home, destroyed her property, and tortured her by carving anti-gay slurs in her skin.  They then poured gasoline over the home and attempted to burn her alive.  She was found by police, naked and bleeding.  I emphasize the word masked because I think it holds a dual purpose.  One of anonymity and the other of cowardice.  If you stand so vehemently behind your anti-gay and homophobic beliefs, why wear a mask?  The only thing worse than a bigot is an anonymous one…

Regardless of your feelings regarding sexual orientation, does it ever even have to come close to the point that is mentioned in this story?

The human race is so disappointing.  It’s disappointing in itself to know that we can’t let people be responsible for their choices in life.  It’s disappointing we can’t accept people for who they are.  It’s despicable that we can’t respect others and their person.
