This story deserves wider attention. A woman in Lincoln, NE was tied to a chair, her attackers carved homophobic slurs into her body, and they then set her house in fire. Luckily, she was able to crawl to safety. My hope is that the feds will get involved and bring these men to justice soon and that religious leaders in the state will start leading on this issue. (Unfortunately, a fair number of them are lining up to be on the wrong side of history. A branch of Focus on the Family recently mobilized their followers to try to block a local ordinance that would protect homosexuals from employment and housing discrimination.) I've provided a link to Star City Pride. They are setting up a victim recovery fund. Please, consider donating and share this story with others.
It turned out to be a hoax. It's a terribly sad ending to a horrible story. Hope that people in Lincoln will be quick to forgive her.
