Homosexual Activist Targets Colorado Family with “Hate Crime” Fire in Front Yard

Fire starter leaves note accusing family of being terrorists for opposing homosexuality

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, September 28, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A family displaying signs opposing homosexuality on their front lawn have been the target of accelerating harassment by homosexual activists, culminating in a Klu Klux Klan type of blazing fire started in their front yard in the middle of the night, Focus on the Family’s Citizen Link reported yesterday.

Christina Sewall woke up about 2 a.m. in her Colorado Springs home to discover a large bonfire on her front lawn, started by a man caught clearly on a video camera set up in the window of the home. The police have called it a hate crime, the latest in a series of increasing threats and vandalism since the Sewalls first set up the innocuous images as part of an ad campaign by Focus on the Family Action.

The simple ads show a dog silhouette with the caption “woof” and the web address No-Moo-lies.com--the ads are intended to counter an ad campaign to raise support for homosexual domestic partnerships on the November ballot, according to Citizen Link, which show a dog with the caption “moo,” intended to represent the “difference” of homosexuality.

A note left after the first pair of signs was taken overnight read, in part:

“This sign is a symbol of hatred…YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN A TERRORIST BECAUSE YOU DISPLAYED THAT SIGN!

“The purpose of this document is to inform not you, but all who share your anti-gay or any other discriminatory beliefs, your world is about to change…SO TAKE WARNING! Your life, your government and the world as you know it is about to change. YOU ARE EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US!”

“How is this being tolerant. They set our lawn on fire?” Sewall said. “We’re not preaching hate, but they are the ones doing the violence.”

The Sewalls have responded to each act of vandalism by replacing the signs in front of their house, but say the risk is distressing.

“We haven’t been resting very well since it started. As adults, we can make the decision and say we think standing up for what we believe in is worth the risk. But we also have to take into consideration that we are taking that risk for kids who can’t decide.”

Earlier in the campaign against them, Christina Sewall told Citizen Link, “The reason we continue [to put out signs]--we have the right to place signs in our yard…And we’re not going to give it up because some people don’t agree with what we’re saying. We aren’t telling them they can’t put things in their yard.”

Now, after the fire, she is still committed to resisting the intimidation, but it is difficult, she said.

“There is some fear and some concern there. But, it also makes me want to stand up all the more, because we are not the ones preaching intolerance.

Another story to note...also labeled as a "hate crime."

I know we will be seeing more of this in the days to come.

Does anyone else have concerns on the signs?
Granted, I agree about the Lies - but is it truly loving to put forth a sign?

I just don't know if this tactic is well served. I know we must speak for truth - and we should...but should it be done in a way that is more loving?

I agree with you member x. I don't think those signs do much in the way of witnessing. Usually kindness leads to repentence, not the law. The law does make us aware of our sin, so has its place, but if it's not followed up with the way to be saved from that sin..... :disappointed:

These people are beyond saving.

They are committed Anti-Christs.

They are determined to take everything you and I and most decent God fearing people believe in, such as 1 man + 1 woman = 1 marriage, 1 family and turn it into something blasphemous and wrong.

What is worse, they have no fear of backlash, which is why they are doing this to this family.

Now that's interesting.

if someone opposes homosexuals, they are called terrorists
and it is now illegal to be true to god and even try to wittness to them, then that would make me well... look like osama

i am so upset by this one.

in the bible it says that it is WRONG to lay with your kin or with the same sex and that you should be stoned, then WHY IS AMERICA ALLOWING GAY PEOPLE TO BE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY AND TO ECOURAGE OTHER MEMBERS OF OUR SOCIETY TO BECOME SINNERS TO!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

it makes me so madd to see a country working so hard to protect gods people and gods faith in us to fall from the insides by people who dont care for freedom and only want to do other men/ women

(srry am just upset thats all)

It is about rights..............and they have a RIGHT to put that sign up in THEIR yard. These people were trespassing when they came into their yard. If they don't like the sign, too bad. I am tired of their lifestyle being crammed down our throats by the schools and news media.

We better makes some stands and make them quick.
