GA Man Attacked For Being Gay

Posted by Darby On January - 24 - 2011

Chris Staples, a citizen of Carroll County GA, woke up with his home set a blaze after receiving a threatening anti-gay note.  Staples gives the account of a rock with the threatening note being thrown through his window as he was watching t.v. and finishing a cigarette.  He said the note read “We know you’re gay. And God hates gays. You won’t be raping anybody in the county and God’s going to make sure that you burn in hell.’ And something about my daddy… my daddy will make sure you burn in hell.” Several later Staples woke up with his house burning to the ground, and was luck to barely escape.

Hatred and bigotry still has a hold on part of the American heart.  We are taking positive steps in the right direction by adopting legislation which legalizes gay marriage and civil unions, and supporting organizations that demand equality for gay people in every aspect of life.  However, acts of violence against gay people show how far America has to go in accepting people who are different.  Only through acceptance and tolerance will this great country know its true strength.
