No different than the many stories like this – Pakistani couple face death by stoning threat after conviction for adultery – or American lynchings.

Yet when you see a video of the guy holding the sign, he’s not some demon.  He’s a confused, repressed gay man parroting things his pastor told him.  Weak thoughts come from weakened minds. Though the message is powerfully offensive, it’s coming from powerless people. Put a bunch of powerless people together, though, and it can become dangerous.
