I participated in a little debate about a gay man who claimed to have been beaten on Sunday morning simply because he was gay. I doubted the story and was viciously attacked because the man is gay although I said nothing about his sexual preferences. I only questioned the story because it didn't make sense to me. I was called a hater, an asshole, a homophobe, etc. and asked to leave town.
Less than 16 hours later, I was proven to be right. The young man made up the story.
I was right, again.
