The figures show that homosexuals are 2.4 times more likely to suffer a violent hate crime attack than Jews (8.3 divided by 3.5). In the same way, gays are 2.6 times more likely to be attacked than blacks; 4.4 times more likely than Muslims; 13.8 times more likely than Latinos; and 41.5 times more likely than whites, according to the FBI figures. The basic pattern holds by years as well as across the years.
The bottom line: Homosexuals are far more likely than any other minority group in the United States to be victimized by violent hate crime.”—
When conservative Christians decry homosexuality as unclean and perverse, they contribute to this violence. You would think that Christians would have learned after centuries of anti-Semitism that using Scripture as an excuse to hate and dehumanize others makes a mockery of the Scriptures and the teachings of Jesus.
