Reacting to a piece in Out Magazine on the United States’ vote at the Human Rights Council in Geneva last week, actress Sophia Bush declared it “truly deplorable” that President Trump would vote against a ban on the murder of gay people in other countries.

Even the Out piece to which she was responding included comments by State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert saying the United States was “disappointed to have voted against that resolution” but that it called for the abolition of the death penalty altogether.

Maybe what’s truly deplorable is that other countries do punish homosexuality by death. That and the U.N. itself, which is pretty much deplorable.

If Sally Kohn and Sophia Bush are both riled up, chances are very good there’s been a lapse in comprehension.

“Re-read”? That’s being generous. Try just reading the article for starters.
