I remember hearing about this some years after but I thought it was a gay bar and did not know that fire waa a hate crime. Or was there another fire like this in New Orleans?

I also remember hearing about the batthouse fire in New York, in incident which Larry Kramer incorporated into his novel "Faggots."

Someone locally burnt a church to the ground where the pastor was preaching his anti-gay ignorance and bigotry to the pew warmers. But there is a happy ending to this story, he burnt the pastors home to the ground too.

Hey all! Remember me? Ernst Roehm? I was the one along with the German 'brownshirts' that elevated Hitler into power. We were very loyal to him until he figured out our plot to overflow him leading up to "Night of the long knives"
Check it out fellow packers and know your gay history.

That sounds like what happened to the churches in Bolshevik Russia. Not to mention the 60 million Christains murdered, many by myself, a half jew. I bet that turns you on, doesn't it? You sick lil bassturd,

I seem to recall some Fundie churches were being burnt down in the Deep South a few years back. Does anyone remember that? I think they caught the perpetrator but I don't know if I remember his motive - does anyone have a link?

Hey, moron: Most gay people who read are well aware that Roehm was gay and there are even some rumours about Der Fuehrer himself. So what? No one says gay people can't be evil. And if some gay people are evil, so are some straight people. Big deal.

Maybe finally these fine subjects from Khazaria can now retire to the promised land since they've had a tremendous hand in destroying us and the Middle East.

Yes. Misleading all the Eastern children that worshipping badly drawn cartoons is a way to God, and the oppression of all those Jewish children and their families down the centuries.

(To Abram: " ... I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you ...)

( Deuteronomy: " ... YHWH your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you and chase you ... ")
