Threats At Anti-Gay Rally

INDIANAPOLIS - Earlier tonight, Bilerico.com broke the story that at an anti-gay National Organization for Marriage rally in Indianapolis, a NOM supporter called for the murder of gay couples. The supporter's sign states that the "Solution to Marriage" is that gay people should "be put to death" and quotes Leviticus 20:13 ("Their blood shall be upon them"). In case his quotation was not clear enough, the sign includes an image of two nooses.  The sign states the NOM supporter's name and address: Larry Adams, from Cross Bearer Ministry in Indianapolis.

 

 

Evan Wolfson, Executive Director of Freedom to Marry, stated that:

 

"Freedom to Marry calls on NOM to repudiate the anti-gay prejudice that underlies its political agenda and fuels its attack campaigns.  NOM's "Summer for Marriage

" anti-gay bus tour has devolved from a media gimmick to a display of prejudice and incitement to violence.  While funneling millions of dollars into political campaigns aimed at stripping away basic protections from gay people and their families, NOM's typical ploy is to conjure up phony claims of harassment and infringement and complain when anyone speaks the truth about its record and agenda.  But with today's display, the mask slipped, revealing what lies beneath NOM's diversions, protestations, and veneer.  The real victims of NOM are committed, loving gay couples across the country who are denied the freedom to marry and the critical safety net that marriage brings.  And all Americans are harmed by the divisiveness, prejudice, and violence that NOM's actions invite."

Freedom to Marry is the leading campaign working to win marriage nationwide.  We partner with organizations and supporters across the country to end the exclusion of same-sex couples from the responsibilities, protections, and commitment of marriage.
