"I’m angry about honor killings. I’m angry that in Islamic theocracies, women who have sex outside marriage, women who date outside their religion, women who spend time with male friends, women who disobey their male relatives, are routinely executed. I’m angry that in these theocracies, even women who have been raped get executed for the crime of adultery. I’m angry that the ones who are only beaten and imprisoned are the ones who get off lucky."

"I’m angry about what happened to Jessica Ahlquist. I’m angry that, in a public, taxpayer-paid high school in Rhode Island, a banner with an official school prayer was prominently posted in the school auditorium — in direct violation of the Constitution and of clear, well-established legal precedent. I’m angry that when Ahlquist asked her high school to take down the banner, her request was rejected, and she had to go to court to get her school to comply with the law. And I’m angry that, when she won her lawsuit — in an entirely unsurprising, non-controversial ruling — she was targeted with a barrage of brutal threats, including threats of beating, rape, and death."
