"Hate crimes thrive on fertile ground" [LINK]

This one's from today:

Kay Stoner believes there's a connection between the movement to bar gay marriage and the recent violent rampage of a deranged teenager. To politicize such an incident is an unfortunate temptation. By focusing on the attack as an expression of homophobia, Ms. Stoner ignores the fact that Jacob Robida was also a neo-Nazi who hated African Americans and Jews as well. Had Robida by chance attacked several people in a Jewish neighborhood, what larger issue of public policy could we have blamed for contributing to his rampage?
