Truly sad if this is verified. But in answer to your question...A very small number.

Victimology: How many of the alleged anti-gay "hate" crimes, are really self-inflicted?

http://www.huffingtonpost.c...51598.html

UPDATE: The Missoula Independent cites local law enforcement officials who say the victim, now identified as Joseph Baken, may have fabricated the attack. “We have new information that we’re following up on,” a source inside the Missoula Police Department is quoted as saying.

In addition, the Independent has posted video footage, which can be found above, which they say shows Baken doing a backflip and sustaining the injuries in the process. Baken may now be charged with making a false report, according to the publication.

A Montana-based gay man's birthday celebration turned ugly after he was allegedly beaten by at least three people in an attack he believes was motivated by his sexual orientation.

Missoulian reports that the 22-year-old man told police he asked patrons at the Missoula Club about the location of a nearby gay bar. After someone asked him to step outside for a cigarette, the man said he was hit by someone, and then two more people joined in.

The "Wipe Out Homophobia" Facebook page identifies the alleged victim only as "Joseph," and says that the assailants hurled anti-gay epithets like "****" at him during the attack. "Nobody deserves this, especially not just because of your sexuality," the group's organizers wrote in their post.

Police say Joseph reported the attack three hours after it happened, and had no serious injuries. Officers are investigating the attack as a misdemeanor, according to KAJ18.

Meanwhile, Missoulian notes that an event called "Proposition Gay Downtown Missoula Pub Crawl" is being organized in response to the attack on Aug. 31. “We are encouraging gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual people (and their straight friends) to show up en masse at any and all Missoula downtown bars on Friday, August 31, to raise awareness while having a rockin’ good time!” the publication cites the group’s Facebook post as saying.

" Temper outbursts alternating with explanations along the lines of "I just couldn't help myself", or "so-and-so made me do it"."

As a proud and unapologetic self proclaimed Gay GoWilkes poster...Where have I ever said "I just couldn't help myself" or "So-and-so made me do It"?

I HAVE said that I was born gay and It was NOT A "choice".

Temper outbursts alternating with explanations along the lines of "I just couldn't help myself", or "so-and-so made me do it".

I've observed it on both sides.

Studies have correlated poor impulse control with homosexuality. That is a contributing factor to the staggering rate of HIV among the gay culture. While much is made of "safe monogomous gay sex"; reality is quite different.

We see it exemplified by the gay guys in the video I posted; as well as the posting habits of self-described homos here on gowilkes.

Temper outbursts alternating with explanations along the lines of "I just couldn't help myself", or "so-and-so made me do it".

Just an observation.

A few of you have said that Chik-Fil-A president Dan Cathy was "just expressing his opinion and what's wrong with that?"


-His OPINION is that he, as a heterosexual, should have more rights than homosexuals have. He was "just expressing an opinion" that is morally repugnant.


-Not only has he "expressed his opinion," but his company has invested millions to keep homosexuals from having those rights. He's not the innocent bystander he's made out to be.


-Thought he does have a 1st Amendment right to express his opinion, the 1st Amendment doesn't protect him from criticism for expressing his opinion.


-The people criticizing him were also exercising their 1st Amendment rights.


Now back to our previously scheduled ignorant outrage.

Liberal tyranny and the cluck heard ‘round the world by Matt Barber

August 7, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Writer Sinclair Lewis is credited with saying, “When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and waving a cross.”

Close, but not quite. Truth is, fascism has come to America; but it’s wrapped in a rainbow flag and waving, well, let’s just say it sure ain’t waving a cross. With its latest wave of scorched-earth malfeasance, the radical left has awakened freedom-loving America to this reality.




Liberals learned a hard lesson on Wednesday. While the generally silent majority was showing exuberant support for free speech, the institution of true marriage and Chick-fil-A, “progressives” were gorging themselves on crow sandwiches doused in bitter hate. While Chick-fil-A was eating at liberals, millions of God-fearing Americans were eating at Chick-fil-A.

It was glorious. Those who would silence free speech were shouted down through an unprecedented – dare I say miraculous – show of unity in the body of Christ. Millions of God-fearing Americans took part in the “buy-cott” as Chick-fil-A’s cup runneth over.

It was a beautiful thing to behold. It made you proud to be an American. Most of the characteristically cocky “progressive” blogs and “news” sites observed radio silence as left-wing elitists – media, activists, politicos and pundits – sat in stunned disbelief.

Their wrongheaded Chick-fil-A boycott had backfired catastrophically.




Quite troubling, however, was when this predictable “progressive” hissy left the realm of comedy and breached the realm of tyranny. Multiple elected officials – all Democrats – disgraced both themselves and the offices they hold by pledging to shut Chick-fil-A down, simply because they disagree with its leadership’s biblical viewpoint.

But the American people stood strong. In response to illegal threats by the mayors of Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Philadelphia to ban Chick-fil-A from their respective jurisdictions, the residents of those great cities rebuked these Constitution-dumping donkeys with “freedom chicken” lines that wrapped around city blocks. “Mayor Emanuel,” they declared, “your godless values are not ‘Chicago Values!’”

In fact, Pastor Rick Warren tweeted that Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy called him to say that sales for Wednesday smashed all records. (Put that in your “progressive” pipe and smoke it, lefties.)

Still, not to be outdone, liberals were determined to beat a dead chicken. As liberty-loving folks peacefully showed support for real marriage with nuggets and waffle fries on Wednesday, “gay” activists held a pathetically attended “kiss-in” at various Chick-fil-A locations on Friday.

We couldn’t ask for a starker contrast. Whereas marriage supporters peacefully patronized Chick-fil-A to demand tolerance for varying viewpoints, homosexual activists engaged in gross, sexually charged public displays deliberately designed to shock and offend children and families.

Disgusting. (Please, do keep it up, though, liberals. True colors are brightest. America is watching. Oh, and the vandalism, bomb threats and bullying of teenage girls working at Chick-fil-A? Nice touch!)

Nonetheless, I believe “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” was just the appetizer – a foretaste of things to come. In November, America serves Obama and Democrats the main course.

And the Democratic Party is helping itself not one little bit. Leading up to Wednesday, a platform change was announced. Hard-left extremists within the party are moving to endorse what some have dubbed, with plain-spoken accuracy, “sodomy-based marriage.”

At a time when record numbers of Democrats in the House and Senate face the very real threat of ouster, the DNC has inexplicably opted to put its stamp of approval on the radical redefinition of marriage – the fundamental cornerstone of any healthy society.

Already nervous, Democrats in at-risk districts are now popping anti-depressants like Pez. They have reason to freak out; especially when you consider that the Democratic Party itself remains robustly divided over this highly controversial issue.

Republicans’ response? Oh please, please don’t throw us in that briar patch.

Of course, Wednesday’s massive outpouring of support for Chick-fil-A provided a visual reminder to all concerned that the vast majority of morally minded Americans reject the oxymoronic notion of so-called “same-sex marriage.” It proved with earthshaking resonance that liberals’ whole “gay-marriage-is-inevitable” thingy remains as sterile as the fraudulent concept itself.

Don’t forget, we live in a constitutional republic where “we the people” are the sovereign, and elected officials are the hired help. When “we the people” have spoken on marriage, we’ve spoken without stuttering.

Thirty-two states have voted on it, and 32 states have protected it via constitutional amendment. Marriage is as marriage was and will be forevermore: the joining of man and wife.

But hey, Democrats made their silly mock-marriage bed, they can sleep in it.

Still, there’s another white paper bag full of goodies to take home from Chick-fil-A. Executives from corporations, large and small, should sit up and take notice. Don’t be intimidated by insufferable homo-fascist organizations like the incongruously tagged “Human Rights Campaign” and GLAAD, the “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.” Their bark is much, much worse than their bite.

No, you’ve just seen a highly successful business model in action. It’s simple: 1) Publicly acknowledge God’s objective, transcendent truth; 2) Infuriate the toothless “progressive” establishment, prompting calls for boycotts and empty threats to ban you; and 3) Rake in the cabbage.

Stand up for what’s right, good and true, and America’s got your back.

So be encouraged. Despite liberals’ best efforts, freedom of speech, God’s design for marriage and reverence for sexual morality are alive and well in America. There is still hope for this great nation.

But not without a fight.

The line in the sand has been drawn.

It’s perverse “pride” versus patriotism. Liberal lies versus truth. Tyranny versus freedom.

On which side will you stand?

Gays are just like every other group of people in the world. There's always going to be people that would make anyone absolutely ashamed to be associated with them for any reason. I know str8 people, white people, blacks, mexicans, gays, christians, athiest...all that I would not want to ever be affiliated with because of how they conduct themselves.

Mommo is neither intolerant nor ignorant....

Speaking of that, watch the video. Seriously, watch it.

There, you will find the true definition if intolerant and ignorant, and, no, I'm not speaking of the homeless man.

well in this instance mommotwo... you may be right... I have no desire to watch the video from Wilblur.... just as I thought the protest against Chic-Fil-A.. just as I thought that dude who made the video and was fired was a bit much.... I can't disagree that whatever the cause you're fighting for.. keeping dignity and respect for others is key.

to be - you need to go back through my posts. Stop listening to what others say I think and just read my posts. There are gay people on here that I completely disagree with and have no respect for. There are others that I do respect. UU is one. Grimey is another. I don't always get along with them, but I respect them and don't really expect that respect in return. There are some posters that bash themselves for me - I think totally so that they can get some sort of pity. I'm not sure. Judge me by what I say and not what someone else says I say and attack after that. I had always rather stand behind my words than let someone else speak them for me.

of course there was mommo... you'll never find dignity in a gay person. Why even look? Your opinions are completely biased.

Not true. It all depends on how they carry themselves. I don't think dignity's what these guys were going for. I think they were trying to be stupid, arrogant punks. They succeeded.
