While pulpits across the land burn with the Leviticus death threats “their blood shall be upon them”, another gay couple’s home is burned to the ground after enduring a year of christian-based anti-gay threats, according to a neighbor of the Clayton, North Carolina victims. [link]
A neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of backlash against her, said there have been at least three separate incidents of anti-gay harassment at the home. A note with derogatory language was left in the mailbox, an anti-gay slur was written on the house with marker, and the tires of a car parked in the garage were slashed, the neighbor said.
“For this to happen here… it’s heartbreaking,” she said. “I can’t even put into words how horrible it is for them.”
Bizzell confirmed that the sheriff’s office was aware of two of those incidents, but would not say which two. He would not confirm whether they are related to the arson investigation.
“I felt sick to my stomach. I felt so sorry for the two gentlemen. They lost everything,” the couple’s friend and neighbor said. “We do believe that this is a hate crime.”
Yes, keep spreading your message of love and peace, christian leaders. /sarcasm.
Christian leaders preaching hate and lies are directly responsible for these incidents. “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”
