Haters gonna hate.  This is what the LGBTQ community has to put up with on a constant basis.  In the comment section of this online article by the local newspaper, the Visalia-Times Delta, a thinly veiled threat.

Here’s the Facebook page of the hater.  This is his profile cover image.

What would Jesus do?

Threats of violence from a follower of the alleged “Prince of Peace”.  Religion is more often than not a vehicle for personal prejudice and violence.

Update:  I thought the name sounded familiar.  This jerk is a well known hater from Porterville.  Surprise surprise.

A contingent from the Los Angeles Chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were the featured program for the Tulare-Kings Counties PFLAG March meeting.  Four of the Sisters drove up from Los Angeles to tell us about the group and it’s charitable works, along with a non-stop barrage of one-liners and poignant stories.

So that was an odd, out-of-the-blue comment on my Twitter feed recently.  It was in response to posts I’d made back in November regarding the LGBT contingent in Porterville’s Veteran’s Day Parade.  JewishBoy must have been trolling old commentary looking for ways to spread the good word.

Here’s how the entire conversation went:

Harvey Milk Day Commentary

Leave a comment

Here’s the text of my Guest Commentary in the Visalia Times Delta of May 20, 2011.

“My name is Harvey Milk, and I’m here to recruit you.”

Making this statement during public appearances, Harvey Milk was recruiting people to come out of the closet. He felt this action was the most important thing people in the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community could do to ensure their civil rights. If more people were aware of the gay associates, friends, family and loved ones around them, it would become impossible for most of them to continue past habits of discrimination.

Sunday, May 22, is the second annual California Harvey Milk Day. It’s a day to remind all Californians of the ability of one person to make a difference.
