Hate Crimes on Rise in US
Thank you James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, Jerry Fartwell for your homophobic and xenophobic rhetoric:
A flurry of recent incidents, from graffiti to harassment, points to a harsher public discourse.
....A recent spate of hate-related incidents around the country has raised a troubling question: Is there something about the mood in the US today - perhaps spurred by Americans dying in combat abroad, plus the cultural and political war at home over issues like same-sex marriage, judgeships, and immigration - that is leading in some instances to threats and attacks?
For some, this has to do with race or religion. For others, it's homosexuality.....
