What part of "batteries in a sock" strikes this man as biblically analogous to "stoning?"

Holy sh1t. I'm as supportive of the LGBT movement as the next guy (being a part of that demographic myself), but that site was taking it to FAR extremes.

They're painting this as the idea that everywhere in America homosexuals/bisexuals/etc are being regularly stoned, instead of what it TRULY was: a tragedy involving an unstable man assaulting another man.

Were you going to respond, or were you just quoting that in agreement?

This terrifies me.

What might "this" be, crazy people, the bible, gays, or violence in general?

The entire story. The fact that people think that stoning is a good and logical response to ANYTHING is an awful thing.

yea, stoning is a bad method for execution. I think it is a shame that people reduce their entire personhood to genitalia and its use. I think everyone should be treated exactly the same. Anyone who thinks this article and the contents represents anything but some crazy is goofy. The cited web cite is equally nonsensical for its over excited interest in those things which may cause increased blood flow.

This, it does paint a horible picture, and actually seems to make no attempt what-so-ever at expressing any empathy at the death of the 70 year old man (who, as was said, may not have even been gay). It seemed to just want to use that death as a means to attack religion. The line, "Every single bigot who quotes the Bible against gays is responsible for this man's death." pretty much ends it.

Not only that, but christians are hypocrites by picking out that one verse while ignoring the rest of the Old Testament/Torah.
