Comment: “Members of the LGBT community have been extraordinarily non-violent in our responses”

Reader comment on the FRC shooting:

The shooting and the years of hate are two different things. The hate does not justify the shooting. Fortunately the guard was only wounded, not killed. I hope he recovers quickly. And fortunately no one else was hurt. it appears from the reports that he and some other people had the courage to disarm the the shooter.

But the group has a history of hate. They are rightly called a hate group. They cannot excuse their hate. What is clear is that despite the negative things they say and the things they do to harm us, members of the LGBT community have been extraordinarily non-violent in our responses. What is also clear is that we have been the people who have suffered considerably from not only the emotional violence against us from groups like the FRC, but also the physical violence against us.
