Man engraves homophobic Bible verses on fence

While I loathe to defend an homophobe’s ignorance, I think in this case it’s free speech. The engraving was done on his own fence and he merely put the reference to the verses; he didn’t spell out the text of each one. It’s a fine line to walk between free speech and hate speech.

Shaffer shares his house with three other gay men and wished to celebrate Pride month.
