All out

The gay rights activist group All Out is asking PayPal to immediately shut down the online accounts of ten groups it has labeled "anti-LGBT extremist groups." Most of the groups are U.S.-based. PayPal reportedly has responded, saying it could not comment on individual accounts and must take "the rights of free speech and freedom of religion" into account.

One of the groups singled out by the effort is Illinois-based hate group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). Seeing that this particular group is indeed an extremely vile organisation, it's no more than fair to shut them down.

I've already signed All Out's petition. You can do the same by clicking here.
