A sad by-product of stepping the fight for equality is an increase in Hate Crimes perpetrated on the LGBT Community.

For just two minutes of your time this October 30th, take a moment to light a candle and stand in silence. You can be together with big or small groups in your public square, in your neighborhood, in front or your city hall or you can be in your room in front of your altar.

Then, take a of photo of the candle you light and post it as your FaceBook profile pic for the next 24 hours. This is to make a further visual statement saying NO TO HATE CRIME

Light a candle. Be silent for 2 minutes. Remember those hurt and lost to us by hate crimes. Stand and say NO TO HATE CRIMES.

    I urge all of you to call the senator of your state and ask him to get as tough on hate crimes as possible. I would like to make a few suggestions. For one thing, those that murder one of us should automatically receive life without parole. Second, injuries should result in a sentence that is doubled the length of what it would be now.
    Also, educational programs should be set up that will show our young children what life is like behind bars should they ever commit a hate crime.

    Employers who discriminate because of their religious beliefs should have THEIR OWN rights taken away. They are traitors and therefore un – American.
