These are the homosexual men and women who died during 9/11. These are some of the people we have to fight for when it comes to the 9/11 memorial.
I am a Kansas atheist which means i live in the great home state of Fred Phelps. You know the God Hates Fags people. During my formative years I also heard many anti gay remarks from my peers. Religion is the enabler of hatred against this group of people. Westboro Church is just the worst we have now, but it can be much worse If we allow it.
The LGBT community honors these fallen, but outside of the LGBT they don't get much mention. When we mention that not all of the people who died in 9/11 were christian, we should mention that they weren't all straight either. Cause if there is one group Christians hate more than atheist its "FAGS" cause you know hating on the LGBT community is a way to show love.
Lets remember these people too when we protest the 9/11 cross. Nobody dies gay or straight. Nobody dies religious or non religious. Nobody dies holy or sinful. We all die as humans we are equal in death and death should not be used to press an agenda.
Live long and prosper
