â€œGayâ€ Activists Mull â€œOrganized Terrorismâ€ Against Christians

Pro-Family Leaders Targets of Death Threats
Lynchburg, VA â€“ In the wake of the horrific act of Islamic domestic terrorism at Fort Hood Texas, it has been learned that militant homosexual activists recently made similar online postings to those of Nidal Malik Hasan, threatening additional acts of terrorism against Christians.
In response to Maineâ€™s natural marriage victory last Tuesday, â€œgayâ€ activists have directly threatened to retaliate with â€œterrorismâ€ and the â€œkillingâ€ of Christians on the popular homosexual activist â€œJoeMyGodâ€ Weblog. Liberty Counsel notified the FBI which is investigating the matter. As of this morning, the offending blog entry had been removed. (captured version of post will be available at www.americansfortruth.com).
Matt Barber, Liberty Counselâ€™s Director of Cultural Affairs, issued a statement shortly after Maineâ€™s marriage victory (posted with additional commentary at AmericansForTruth.com). In reaction to that statement, blog poster â€œColdCountryâ€ wrote: â€œWill someone please give me a gun?â€ Poster â€œFritzâ€ warned: â€œWhat I fear is that once gay and lesbian people give up hope of achieving equality through nonviolent means, there will be radicals who will begin to hunt down hatersâ€¦ All it will take is a small group of radical zealots who are willing to kill for their cause.â€
In reply to Fritz, â€œtexâ€ posted: â€œFritz….you say this like it’s a bad thing? Maybe a bit of well organized terrorism is just what we need.â€
â€œThis happens in all cases where people are oppressed and lack representation,â€ continued Fritz. â€œWe will have gay and lesbian people strapping bombs to their chests and blowing up churches. All it will take is one or two more losses like this. If marriage equality is taken away in one of the landmark states, we will see domestic terrorism arise very quickly. â€¦ In 1991, I witnessed gay and lesbian activists setting fire to buildings and beating people with baseball bats in Los Angeles.â€
â€œtexâ€ reiterated: â€œStill not seeing this as a bad thing Fritz … [African gay activists] didn’t gain their civil rights through being passive.â€
In addition to Barber, pro-family leaders Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth and Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage were specifically named targets.
Meanwhile, Michael Heath, former director of the Christian Civic League of Maine, was targeted by a direct death threat shortly after the passage of Question 1 last week. An anonymous caller telephoned the League, warning: â€œI am calling about Mr. Mike Heath, the Executive of your Christian Civic League of Maine. He thinks that gay people should have our rights revoked that we already have. Well I can tell him this â€“ Iâ€™m a gay guy who owns guns, and heâ€™s my next target.â€ Law enforcement was immediately notified.
Matt Barber commented: â€œAll potential threats of terrorism and murder are very serious business. As we learned just last week, there are ideologically driven terrorists who walk among us. After passage of Proposition 8 in California we saw that many homosexual activists are capable of threats, vandalism and even violence. Those who either threaten or attempt to incite terrorism must be immediately brought to justice. Churches and Christian leaders around the country need to be on high alert. These threats of homosexual activist terrorism must be taken very seriously.â€
