    As for the rest, who the heck is watching people bedrooms in keyhole in our community and counting? I mean it's offencive to hear that someone divides people on LGBT, non - LGBT... someone must have a lot of money on there hands to do this sort of work. If someone who known to be a gay person gets shielded from violence by Jewish community and wants to talk about it in press, sure, knock yourslef out. But this kind of media attention to "Jewish community" as in separate from rest and than LGBT community treatment in Jewish community... this defies common sense. The only outcome of this sort of media attention is make LGBT people aware that going to Jewish community for help somehow sets them apart from the rest. And that might not be such a good thing... We could probably talk about some historical events, well known people in Jewish community who gave refuge to gay people in their homes and otherwise shown friendship when world was far less well off and mob on the streets could be easily incited into violence. Such article would be enlightening and help to deepen understanding of historic trends as to why there is a bond between the communities. And give guiding light to those of goim who feel that time has come to break some old taboos. Strengthem their resolve and let people, who are right now stack in some ways, change. This article is the worst one can do. It's a pure wedge slammed between Jewish / non - Jewish, LGBT / non - LGBT. It really is offensive.
