Leftwing civility: A Connecticut gay man has pleaded guilty to sending hundreds of threatening letters, including death threats, to the director of a conservative organization opposed to same-sex marriage.
Some quotes from his letters:
“No mercy for homophobes,” said one letter, obtained by The Courant. “I suggest you make your funeral arrangements real soon, Mr. Wolfgang. (Trust me. I know.)”
I sure hope someone blows you away! YER DEAD
Here is what the director of the Family Institute of Connecticut had to say:
“Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident,” Wolfgang said. “In fact, it is part of a growing and disturbing intimidation campaign among some proponents of same-sex ‘marriage.’ It is clear that their pretense of ‘tolerance’ is over.”
In related news, a just released “Survey on Religious Hostility in America” lists over 600 similar cases, many of which I have reported here on Behind the Black.
