If Hate Had A Face and A Voice: A Final Solution

Abby Zimet

Meet Charles Worley, a so-called "pastor" in North Carolina who recently, eloquently railed against Obama's support of same-sex marriage - "I ain’t gonna vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover!" - because "The bible's agin' it, God's agin' it, I'm agin' it." His suggested final solution: Put all the "lesbians and queers" inside a "great, big, large fence," and wait for them to die. We have been here before; attention must be paid. A march is planned, here's his contact info, here's a suggestion to respond with donations to an LGBT advocacy group.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
