Homophobes killed by gay people: Very few, if any. Gay people killed by homophobes: Countless

Scott Lively has claimed gay people are out to murder him.

The hate preacher, currently on trial for crimes against humanity for his alleged LGBTI human rights abuses in Uganda, has published an article condemning the Human Rights Campaign and their 'hit list'.

As he is number one on the HRC's 'exporters of hate', he says he has 'special cause for concern'.

'Not every “gay” activist is physically violent, thankfully. Most limit their “human rights advocacy” to harassment, intimidation and slander,' Lively claims in his article on Barbwire.

For as much progress countries and communities are making with regards to marriage equality, homophobic bullying and transgender discrimination, the fight is far from over.

With the rapid-fire speed of social media, it seems someone, somewhere, is always making harmful comments to and about the LGBTI community.
