  1. Such a waste of a young man’s life. Will it never stop!

  2. Not so long as there’s a Bible or a Koran on this world.

  3. Way to go, Ty. Using this tragedy to spread your hate-filled propaganda (I don’t suppose you see the irony in that). You’re a real class act.

    The loss of life is tragic, especially when one has his whole life in front of him, regardless of his sexuality or ethnic origin.
    Gayasylum and all its members would like to express our heart full condolences to this tragic loss of life and hope it stands as a reminder that all life is precious.

    rjb – b>Superstition, which is what religion is called when it’s all gussied up and trying to look respectable, is, after disease, humankind’s greatest tragedy.

    Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.

    The howling madness that produced witch burnings, the Inquisition, anti-Semitism, the Crusades and a century of genocides against Armenians, European Jews, Russians, muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and non-muslims in Drafur also produced the murders of unknown tens of thousands of GLBT folk by christist and islamic thugs. That’s all the proof we’ll ever need to be the implacable enemies of superstition.

    When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said “Let us pray.” We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.
    Desmond Tutu

    Religious/superstitious people often display symptoms of severe mental illness (hallucinations, conversing with invisible creatures), sociopathology (their penchant for killing people not similarly afflicted) and criminality (child rape and fraud). There is no reason why they should be permitted to have any voice in the affairs of sane people.

    Theology is never any help; it is searching in a dark cellar at midnight for a black cat that isn’t there. Theologians can persuade themselves of anything.
    Robert A. Heinlein
