Salut and salaam:

The article at the following link - http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20090823/local/anti-gay-graffiti-sprayed-on-walls-in-mans-home - raises a question in my mind. However, a hate crime is a hate crime and there can be and is no excuse. A friend of mine who some months back courageously went on a talk show in Valetta, Malta to open up eyes and minds. I hope this person at the end of thge hate crime is not him, of course. Still, what individuals versus what a country holds to be true can be quite different, of course

PS: I am guilty of posting this same post in two other groups with a LGBTI focus on this site. Apologies. I am not sure how much crosspollination or cross reading there may be between the groups.
