A Connecticut homosexual pled guilty on Tuesday to sending 300 threatening messages, including death threats, to the leader of a state pro-life, pro-marriage organization.
53-year-old Daniel Sarno of Enfield, Connecticut, admitted intimidating Peter Wolfgang, the executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, over a six-month period from last November until May.
One message read: No mercy for homophobes. I suggest you make your funeral arrangements real soon, Mr. Wolfgang.
Another said, I sure hope somebody blows you away. Yer dead.
Sarno once asked, Are family values worth dying for, Mr. Wolfgang?
Wolfgang said Sarno identified himself as a homosexual in the letters, which came addressed Attention: Peter Wolfgang.
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident, Wolfgang said in a statement e-mailed to LifeSiteNews.com. 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.
The conviction comes as other homosexual extremists have turned violent.
LGBT activist Floyd Corkins II shot security guard Leo Johnson at the Family Research Councils headquarters last Wednesday after saying, I dont like your politics.
In April, a group of self-proclaimed angry queers smashed the windows of a 100-year-old church in Oregon, because it opposes redefining marriage. The only dialog we need with scum like Mars Hill [church] is hammers through their windows, their note read.
Traditional Values Coalition President Andrea Lafferty told LifeSiteNews.com her organization has received many, many threats from the homosexual and transgender community dating as far back as the 1980s, but the Obama administrations leadership does not believe they need to protect us. Attorney General Eric Holder, she said, has put Christians at a low priority.
In Connecticut, everyone was happy things were resolved without violence.
Using death threats to stifle debate is un-American, Wolfgang said, promising to remain unbowed. These types of tactics wont work. The Family Institute of Connecticut will continue its work to strengthen and protect marriage, life and religious freedom. He thanked local police for protecting his family members and employees.
The Hartford Courant blasted Wolfgang, even as it condemned threats of violence. The paper stated in an unsigned editorial, Threats of violence dont produce understanding. And it is a hypocrisy when those who plead for tolerance are themselves intolerant.
Sarno plead guilty to two counts of mailing threatening material. He could receive up to 10 years in prison and a maximum of $500,000 in fines. U.S. District Judge Ellen Bree Burns set the sentencing hearing for next January 3 in New Haven.
Whoops, think we have a double post, Morgana; I posted this a few hours ago, same piece with same title from same site.
Awful story, though, and doubt we will hear anything of it in MSM, but that’s to be expected...
They never should have let the homosexuals out of the insane asylums. It's one of the biggest mistakes this country has ever made.
Boy, the homos have been rabidly active lately, haven't they? It seems like every day (sometimes more than once) theres another homosexual criminal or fruitcake thread.
Just a few threads ago another homosexual molested another little boy in a public rest room. It just never ends.
You should also familiarize yourself with the thread regarding vanities as well.
Thank you for those links - am reading. SJ
