    This makes me so mad. I agree though, at least the protesters didn't get violent. But so many things wrong about that.

    Sometimes I forget exactly how stupid people are capable of being, especially Americans. I used to be a pretty zealous Christian but now it grosses me out, the entitled attitude so many Christians have that the mere existence of certain people is a threat. I'm tempted but I'm not reading the comments section on that article, not today satan.

    I'm glad there was no physical violence at the event and that there are some good people in the area supporting LGBT people. I don't understand how some people can hate people different than themselves. I wish all bigots were infertile so they couldn't have kids to indoctrinate into their mentality of hate and how cruel for LGBT kids born to them.

    This was at the end of the article which is incredibly insane, "...Alabama, which still requires schools to teach that homosexuality is a “criminal offense,”..." The article about that talks more about what is "taught" in AL schools about sexuality. Their blindness to reality ultimately hurts people in so many ways.

    I don't intend to. They don't deserve it.

    Does this group even know what they stand for? Forget the issue of supremacy or racism, it has a history of murder, for godsake. Why do you want to reclaim or continue the name of a group of murderers? It's one thing to make people afraid, but by carrying the name of the Klan, you're essentially saying, "If I could, I would kill you right now in the most horrific way possible so that the rest of you will stay down, where I believe dirt like you belongs." This really isn't a joke or a symbol to take lightly.
