When we cry 'hate crime'
04 Aug 2011
Street preacher told us to burn in hell, gay couple claim.
Worrying claim in Pink Paper here. This surely is not a hate crime? LGBT people need to find strength within themselves to deal with this kind of comment/abuse. A quick back-handed compliment, sarcastic tip-off or wry smile should suffice. Sometimes a blown kiss to those pesky street preaches help. Remember: homophobia is not a crime and to be homophobic is not illegal. It is a state of mind.
In any case: street preacher's tell everyone to go to hell don't they?
