Insanity in Cali: “Vote Yes” signs stolen, death threats issued
If this doesn’t beat all, I don’t know what will.
Nice Mormon folks who simply want to vote their conscience and raise awareness about the need to preserve the traditional definition of marriage are being targeted with death threats by anti-Proposition 8 sign-stealing hatemongers.
At least a dozen people in a California LDS ward have received these threats, including a bishop and a Young Single Adult branch president.
For obvious reasons, I’m not going to post the location of this occurrence. That would be bad news for the folks who keep having to deal with this. But rest assured, this is not a hoax. There will be public record police reports to look at soon.
This is an outrage no matter which side of the fence you’re on with this issue. Have we sunk so low as to resort to third-world tactics? Are the supporters of the gay agenda going to start going door-to-door, pulling people out of their beds at night and covering them with tar and feathers?
The only way this will stop is if the people reading GrizzlyGroundswell do the following:
1. Put out the word to your own social networks (facebook, twitter, Digg, etc.)
2. Mention it (non-threateningly) to people you know whenever the subject of Prop 8 arises. Help them to understand how equally wrong this would be if the tables turned and people of faith suddenly started distributing death-threat letters in gay neighborhoods.
3. Follow #hateon8 twitter hashtag for commentary. It won’t be pretty. All kinds of malcontents will latch on, but it will sure shine a bright light on what’s really going through people’s minds.
