    I’m glad to see Knoxville’s religious congregations helping each other during the aftermath of this tragedy. Despite one man’s hateful actions and the harsh comments found online, community is community.

    The community of the decent, as opposed the community of the decent.
    Since Peter LaB is castigating the HRC regarding this shooting and hate crimes laws…he’s forgetting how often some Christians are not exactly saying THEY haven’t benefitted from or shouldn’t be under the umbrella of hate crimes laws.

    The deplorable sentencing in the Sean Kennedy murder, and the release of the murderer of Pvt. Barry Winchell should inform Peter LaB that sometimes it’s not the crime itself that determines that it’s a hate crime, but the lack of consideration of justice BECAUSE of the background of the victim.

    It doesn’t seem to register that if Peter LaB and Matt Barber weren’t engaged in chronic fear mongering of homosexuals, the hate crimes wouldn’t happen in the first place.

    PREVENTING hate crimes isn’t on their radar.

    A funeral involving people killed for the permissive views of their church on homosexuality?

    Where is he? I would have expected him to at least try to make a show! You know who I’m talking about.

    Along with Denise, I am grateful to see the diverse communities of faith step in to participate, serve, share and be together in the grief and sorrow of this tragedy.
