In recent years, there has been an effort to equate the current homosexual rights movement with the black civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s. But the analogy fails for two principal reasons: 1) The homosexual movement can’t find a reverend named Martin Luther Queen, and 2) unlike blacks, homosexuals generally have to invent their own victimization stories so they will have some “social ill” to eradicate.

Of course, such stories are never a manifestation of the illnesses of “society.” They are simply evidence of widespread mental illness in the LGBT “civil rights” movement.

The latest psychotic episode within the LGBT (uncivil) rights movement occurred at UNC-Chapel Hill where a freshman told police he was attacked by a man who burned his hand and called him an anti-gay slur. The accusation resulted in the police investigating the incident as a so-called hate crime.

"As a university community, we condemn this act of violence," said UNC-CH Chancellor Holden Thorp in a statement to students, faculty and staff. "Our Department of Public Safety will bring the strongest possible charges against the attacker." Remember that promise as you read the rest of the story.

The attack, which was reported to police April 5, supposedly occurred on the foot bridge between Craige Residence Hall and the intersection of Ridge Road and Manning Drive. Police said the student was treated for burns at the student health center. The student, UNC freshman Quinn Matney, told police a person he recognized (but did not know) pressed a hot piece of metal to his left wrist, scalding it and doing tendon damage. The burn left an imprint that looked something like a figure 8.

The police had no suspects when Chancellor Thorp weighed in. Matney said he stopped to speak to another acquaintance just prior to the attack, but didn't know that person by name, either. The intellectual giants running the UNC system should have been suspicious. But they weren’t. Instead, Thorp told the entire university community that the aggravated assault appeared “to have been motivated by the sexual orientation of a male student." And he went even further.
