This is a hate crime and must be filed as one. I think the victim should sue this loser in civil court too. Also, these people should have their child removed from their custody; they are unfit to raise a child.

Four gay men allowed themselves to be assaulted by one bigot? They should have kicked his ass. C'mon, dudes, fight back!

Shouldn't you be spending quality time with your wife and family? Is it your wife that screams, "any-cock-will-do" or you?

I don't buy this story for one second. These flaming poofs must have been acting loud and obnoxious for this guy to get so upset with them. If they had just sat down and acted like normal, decent people they never would have drawn the attention of the guy with his family sitting behind them.

Good for these guys for standing up to this asshat. I would like to have seen his face when the police showed up. I'm sure he NEVER thought that there would be real world consequences to his hate. He doesn't have to "rot in jail" for the rest of his life, just long enough to be punished.

These people are neither normal nor decent; first they attack, then they run away (cowards) and finally resist arrest.. A fine example to children and really decent people.. You can tell from the photo that he's humorless and bitter.. And your standing up for him shows how very abnormal and indecent you yourself are..

The police evidently didn't think so. But then idiots like you think they know everything.

No one cares what you buy.

What Mr Menard should have done was move to another section of the theater. Then prayed for these poor young men.

This article demonstrates why queers should stay in their closets and not flaunt their perversities around Normal and Decent people.

This is the first time I've logged in to Topix, but,based on the judging of the posts, this must be a gay site.LOL Hate crime, give me a break. Walk down any inner city street and see what comments you'll get, and those would be from blacks who are also 'protected' by hate legislation..............BTW, I Googled EDGE and found its a gay publication. No wonder..........
