Lesbians in Canada receive threatening letters.

So this is happening:

TWO vicious anonymous  letters, written “in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, our savior”, have been received by a lesbian couple in Kingston, Ontario, ordering them to leave town or be used as target practice.

The group behind the threats – addressed to “lesbian bitches” – claim their head office is in the “Deep South” and that its memberst had been watching Susan Belyea and Karen Dubinsky for the past few weeks..

The women were told that if they took the letter to the police, the group will use “violence surgically’” to persuade them to leave.

A  follow-up letter threatened that “fun and games will turn into deadly serious action” if the women don’t leave the area. The letter threatens that youngsters armed with BB guns will hunt the women down.

There is but one force on earth that could convince someone that kissing a person is a greater crime than shooting them.

I can’t wait for the first Christian who says “But that’s not really god’s will” as if god’s will is the arbiter of right and wrong, as if such a heinous crime would become morally laudable if god had actually commanded it.  No, it’s immoral because it’s fucking inhumane.
