Here's a visual for you, Pat

Televangelist and wild-eyed homophobe Pat Robertson:
The noose has tightened around the necks of Christians to keep them from speaking out on certain moral issues. And it all was embodied in something called the Hate crimes bill that President Obama said was a major victory for America.

The photo above was taken at the July 2005 execution of two young Iranian men, ages 16 and 18, for the crime of homosexuality, as reported by the Iranian Student News Association. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: "In Iran, we don't have homosexuals."

Pat, maybe you should give Iran a visit — experience the joys of theocracy for yourself. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

The hangmen are masked.

They have the sense to know they must hide their faces for their shameful acts, though perhaps they suspect that they cannot hid from Allah.

Robertson has no such awareness.

I think it's pretty dangerous to equate speech with killing.
