Hate Hatian Style - UPDATED: Two Gay Men Beaten to Death

Thousands of Haitians marched in Port au Prince today out of hate and fear of gay people.

The anti-gay protest was organized by a group calling itself The Haiti Coalition of Religious and Moral Organizations which includes Protestants, Catholics Muslims and even Vodouisants. Tony Perkins would be right at home.

Protesters carried anti-gay placards and chanted songs, including one in which they threatened to burn down parliament if it legalizes same-sex marriage. The protest is, in part, a reaction to a gay rights group that is planning to submit a marriage equality proposal.


The mob waded into a group of men presumed to be gay. Two men were beaten to death. Three hours later, their bodies were still in the street.

I hope this sends a message to tourists that Haiti is not only intolerant but violent, backward and uncivilized.
