"A federal court in Tacoma, Wash., has been asked to order that the names of signatories of a state petition seeking to protect traditional marriage be redacted to protect them from death threats from homosexual activists."
"Oh my God, This woman is so f---ing stupid. Someone please shoot her in the head, again and again. And again."
"I'm going to kill the pastor."
"If I had a gun I would have gunned you down along with each and every other supporter…"
"We're going to kill you."
"You're dead. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon … you're dead."
"I'm a gay guy who owns guns, and he's my next target."
"I warn you, I know how to kill, I'm an ex-special forces person."
"Get ready for retribution all you bigots."
Burn their f---ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers."
"The issue is the some 138,000 Washington state residents who signed a petition in 2009 to repeal a law that gave same-sex partners all the legal rights of married couples. The petition forced a referendum vote in November of that year in which voters decided to sustain the law.
" . . . because the state considers such petitions "public records," homosexual activists are demanding the names and addresses of the signers in order to post them on the Internet and "publicize on their web sites, in searchable format, the identities of every person who signed the … petition," according to a new filing seeking nondisclosure of the names.
"Homosexual promoters have stated publicly they want to post the personal contact information on the Internet so that activists can find them . . .
So far, the three LGBT groups involved--BashBack!, KnowThyNeighbor.org, and WhoSigned.org--have already carried out some of their threats-- painting swastikas on people's lawns, throwing bricks through their windows, and graffitied churches and glued doors shut. They have also threatened to kill the children of those who signed the petition.
