Later this morning I’ll be sitting down with Stephen Sprinkle (pictured above), an associate professor at Texas Christian University who’s been studying anti-gay hate crimes for the last several years.
When he spoke at last Sunday’s service in Dallas honoring 15-year-old murder victim Lawrence King of California, Sprinkle referred to what he called “a slow, rolling holocaust” of anti-gay hate crimes across the country. Sprinkle says the mainstream media has largely ignored anti-gay hate crimes since Matthew Shepard, but today we have another exception courtesy The Orlando Sentinel.
Read more about Sprinkle’s research in next week’s print edition.
