In the wake of the recent rejection of same-sex marriage by Maine voters, several Christian and pro-family leaders have reported deadly terrorist threats from homosexual supporters of same-sex marriage to the FBI and other authorities.
Americans for Truth, the National Organization for Marriage, the Christian Civic League of Maine are the three specific groups targeted by phone calls or Internet threats, but there were also terrorist threats against Christians and churches supporting traditional marriage.
“All potential threats of terrorism and murder are very serious business,” said Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs for Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization “dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the traditional family.”
“After passage of Proposition 8 in California,” he said, “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.”
