Prosecution Is Not Persecution
There’s been a lot of yammering about a certain Kentucky lady who has been “air quotes” “persecuted” for her beliefs that Teh Gays can suck it, and not in the Dan Savage GGG way. But while she keeps using that word, we don’t think it means what she thinks it means. The word she is looking for is “prosecuted,” which is what happens when one breaks the law. While they sound the same, they are actually very different concepts.
