I really did enjoy this rant about the local antis shooting themselves in the foot this week. I also appreciate the writer uploading the article including picture so that I don't have to link to the ProJo, which requires registration. Moffitt has been bending over backwards for days to try to distance himself from his compatriots. But when you lie down with dogs.... Props to the ProJo's Karen Ziner for reporting this story, and also for her followup in Saturday's edition where she re-interviewed the woman who made the offending comments:

Yesterday, D'Ovidio said her quote about the Station fire was taken out of context.

"It is not because of homosexuals that people are punished," D'Ovidio said. "For one thing, there are some persons with homosexual tendencies who live virtuous, celibate lives."

D'Ovidio continued, "God cannot bless a country and its people that is
the greatest exporter of pornography, allows over 60,000 pornographic
sites on the Internet available to children, and kills 4,500 babies a day through abortions -- with over 100 a week of these in Rhode Island. Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people because of all of our sins."

So, to clarify: the Station fire was only partly caused by homos, and only by us homos who do not live celibate lives. Okay. Her views differ only in tone from godhatesfags.com's take on the Station fire (it's a PDF, and it's ugly, so you've been warned.)
