    "This article is a follow up to a piece that was written May 31st about the horrifying tale of a peaceful, well-to-do gay couple in Arizona that has been persecuted, harassed, and bullied by their neighborhood with little to no action taken by police. I liberally describe the harassers as the neighborhood, because there is no evidence to suggest people from outside of the community are carrying out these abusive tactics."

    "In the last 120 days the Bermea's family vehicles have been vandalized, with gay slurs scratched into them. Their property has been set on fire, and their home has been broken into -- again with slurs and profanity left behind. One of the children's rooms was vandalized, and they now are afraid to sleep there. Can you blame them? How would any child be able to sleep knowing that there are people outside your walls who want to do harm to you and your family? The trauma on the minds of these children is heartbreaking, as they will likely carry these moments terror with them for the rest of their lives. It is despicable, deplorable and truly tragic that these innocent children have learned at such an early age what it means to live in fear."

    A really sad story.
    Isn't it interesting that anti-gay bigots always claim to be interested in protecting children, when in reality they have no qualms with terrorizing children who are gay or have gay family members?

    One of the comments posted by a reader at the end of the piece called Arizona "the Mississippi of the Southwest" and is represented by "Klan leader" Jan Brewer, the Governor.

    One RJ ultra conservative poster from Arizona is a huge fan and supporter of Governor Brewer saying she had to make "tough choices" there.

    Such a tough choice to push a pro-white, anti-gay, anti Hispanic, hate filled agenda down what is really a very nice state. Misery loves company though as we have the same polarizing type individual running Florida.
