The NLGJA Blog Re:Act offers interesting context for President Obama's remarks to the Catholic media regarding his "wrestling" with his faith versus his "regard" for LGBT people.

The case was originally charged as a hate crime, but that charge was later dropped based on shaky eyewitness testimony.
