What’s fascinating is that in the wake of the passage of landmark federal “hate crimes” legislation including “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” — designed to protect homosexuals as a group — there seems to be a resurgence of anti-Christian hate coming from “GLBT” (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) extremists. More on that coming. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.orgReprinted from the Christian Civic League of Maine website:Nov 6, 2009The normal routine of the League was interrupted Friday afternoon, when an anonymous caller called to say he owned guns and his next target was the former director of the League, Mike Heath (right). The death threat was apparently related to the recent win on Question 1, which revoked the right of homosexuals to be married in Maine.The caller said the following:“I 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 – I’m a gay guy who owns guns, and he’s my next target.”The call was the latest and most serious example of intimidation by homosexual rights supporters after the win on same sex marriage.

First, I do not know if the following "death threats" were made or not. There has been so much hate coming from the the "christian" right and their credibility is running pretty low.
I do know with emotions running high the LGBTQ community must continue to take the high road. We cannot afford to meet the religious "wrong" at their level of hate and bigotry. By doing the right thing and not lowering ourselves to the bigots, homophobes and transphobes standards, equality will be achieved
