4. The consensus is that it's a deliberate provocation
Edited on Thu Oct-07-10 07:27 PM by Newsjock
So teh gheys will deface/protest/destroy/whine/whatever, and then KSFO -- one of the nation's worst scum-of-the-earth hate-talk stations -- and Fox News can run a week of stories about teh intolerant gheys.

But why should "tolerance" extend to "tolerating" those who want us silent or, worse yet, dead?

The most interesting aspect is that the "billboard" is actually a sign placed over the sign for a gas station, which some believe might well be a violation of the city's sign ordinance. And it's a rather safe bet that the gas station in question just lost much of its key business. (Yes, $3.09/gal for regular is a somewhat good price in SF these days.)
