Teenage Gang Attempts To Burn Gay Man In Duluth, Minnesota

Christian Teens Burn Gay Man

Max Pelofske, 21, of Duluth was attacked and nearly burned to death by a group of Minnesota teens Saturday night. After confirming that the victim was Gay the gang beat Pelofske then attempted to kill him by throwing his body onto a roaring fire.

“He told me to look him in the eyes, and I was really confused because I’d never seen the guy before,” Pelofske told the News Tribune. “He asked me: ‘Are you gay?’ And I said, ‘Yes. Is that OK?’ ”

After that, Pelofske said he was struck in the head by a flying beer can, and a crowd of boys surrounded him, threw him to the ground and began punching and kicking him.

“I tried to get up, but I kept getting knocked back down,” said Pelofske, who described his alleged assailants as “all laughing and smiling.”

“They were trying to throw me into the fire,” he said.

Johnson said at least nine boys were involved in the attack.

Two of the teenage boys have been taken into custody pending charges. The other seven are still free to terrorize Gays and Lesbians in Duluth.

Obviously these teens were following the teaching of the christian bible which demands Gays to be put to death. Recently several prominent church leaders have called on their christian congregations to beat Gays and Lesbians some ministers even lobbying congress for the detainment of Gay and Lesbian Americans in Nazi style concentration camps.

The past several years has seen a rash of arson attacks and increased violence against Gays and Lesbians in America as christian churches ramp up the anti-Gay hate rhetoric.  Some christian ministers have gone so far as to call for a civil war to keep the “dirty homo” in his place.

All violence and discrimination against Gays and Lesbians in the United States is rooted in the teaching of the christian church. No other institution in this country, outside of islam, calls for the execution and imprisonment of homosexuals. Between 70 and 80 percent of people in this country have chosen the christian religion.  Although a few sects within the christian church tepidly support Gay and Lesbian Americans they refuse to challenge the wildly popular hate teaching pushed by mainstream christian leadership.

Those who choose to follow the christian faith need to remember that every accredited medical, psychological and scientific organization in the United States agrees that homosexuality and heterosexuality are both normal, natural and unchangeable sexual orientations. Approximately 10% of the human population is born homosexual, this percentage has remained unchanged throughout our history. Homosexuality is a necessary variable in the evolution of the human species and advancement of society.

As Gay and Lesbian Americans continue the advances in securing equality across this country, our community should expect more attacks from followers of the christian faith. Christianity has a 2000 year history of directed violence and discrimination against Gays and Lesbians, these acts of hatred often included burning homosexuals.

We cannot expect this animosity to disappear anytime soon, especially with christian leaders calling for more attacks. We can however protect ourselves and our families from the brutality.

Every Gay and Lesbian American has the same 2nd Amendment right to own a gun and defend their family that christians so often tout. Buy a gun, carry the weapon and understand the laws around the use of lethal force in your state. If Max Pelofske had been carrying a small easily concealed .22 pistol in pocket of his A&F cargo shorts he would not have been a victim.

Lesbian Couple Refused Insurance After Home Destroyed By Arson

Lesbian couple stand in the ruins of their home after arson attack, the word "Queers" spray painted on the garage in the background. Insurance company refuses to pay on hate crime against homosexuals.

On the night of September 4th 2010 a homophobic christian neighbor burned Carol Ann and Laura Stutte’s dream home to the ground. After five months the Tennessee officials investigating the arson have yet to charge anyone and the American National Property and Casualty Insurance company is refusing to pay on the couples claim until the investigation is complete.

Returning from Nashville where Carol Ann and Laura celebrated their anniversary they found a pile of rubble where their dream home once stood.

Despite numerous police reports documenting a neighbor that had threatened to burn down their home and who repeatedly told them the “…only thing better than one dead queer was two dead queers…” no arrests have been made.

The Stutte home had no gas service and was all electric. Even with witness reports of two explosions and a fireball that could be seen above the treeline, that all waterhoses on the property had been cut and that “QUEER” had been painted on their garage the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, Tennessee Bureau of

Investigation and FBI have yet to rule the fire as an arson.

What is even more disturbing is that the Stutte’s insurance company, American National Property and Casualty has yet to pay a dime to the Stutte family even though they had purchased coverage to provide them habitation and living expenses in the case of such a loss.

via Their American Dream.

It is not surprising that the Tennessee officials are dragging their feet on the investigation. Tennessee does not include Gays and Lesbians in their states hate crimes statutes and has recently introduced legislation that would imprison teachers for discussing homosexuality in schools.

Even more disturbing is the institutionalized homophobia of the insurance industry. Like many homeowners, the Stutte’s had opted for additional coverage in case of total loss.  This additional coverage would provide for housing as well as living expenses until the claim was settled. Five months later American National Property and Causality has not paid a single penny on the claim.

If a straight African American couple had their home burned by the christian klan an insurance agent would be at the door with a check the next day. If a straight Jewish couple were burned out by a local group of Neo-Nazi’s they would have already rebuilt.

The hate filled attitude of “we don’t want no faggots in our neighborhood” is spreading as our community scores civil rights victories. Recently there has been a rash of arson attacks and increased violence against Gays and Lesbians in America as christian churches ramp up the anti-Gay hate rhetoric.  Some christian ministers have gone so far as to call for a civil war to keep the “dirty homo” in his place.

Gays and Lesbians have the same right to the American Dream as anyone else.  Watch the video and tell me what you would do if this were your home.

When they come to burn your family out of the neighborhood will you be ready? Nothing stops a crazed christian arsonist faster than a bullet to the head. Arm yourself and protect your family.

Sign the petition and stand up against the institutionalized bigotry against Gays and Lesbians in the insurance industry.

Christian Arsonist Destroys Gay Couples Home In North Carolina

Christians Burn Gay Couples Home To Ground

After a year of threatening notes and vandalism a Gay couple in North Carolina lost their home to an act of arson early Friday morning. This is the most recent in a string of arson attacks targeting Gay and Lesbian Americans in the south.

Christian ministers fighting against equality for Gay and Lesbian Americans are preaching to their congregations that homosexuality is an abomination before god and that Gays and Lesbians must be executed. This homophobic rhetoric is fanning the fires of hate in churches across America’s south.

Clayton, NC– Johnston County deputies are investigating an early Friday morning fire that destroyed a Clayton home and displaced a homosexual couple who lived there. WRAL-TV in Raleigh talked to a neighbor of the couple who said the couple had been victimized by harassment for more than a year.

Fire crews were called to the house on New Castle Court around 1:30 a.m. Friday. The couple was out of town when the fire was set, according to a neighbor and investigators.

The couple was not at home when the fire started and are now staying in a motel. They asked WRAL not to reveal their identity out of fear for their safety.

Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell confirmed to the television station that the fire is being investigated as an arson. Bizzell said this fire does not appear to be related to a string of other suspicious fires in the area.

A neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of backlash against her, said there have been at least three separate incidents of anti-gay harassment at the couple’s home. She told WRAL, a note with derogatory language was left in the mailbox, an anti-gay slur was written on the house with marker and the tires of a car parked in the garage were slashed.

These same tactics were used by christian groups against African Americans in the south fifty years ago. Rather than writing “faggot” on the side of the house they burned a cross in the yard before torching the home. “We have no problem with “black folks” we just don’t want them in our neighborhood”, was the argument used by the christians in those days to justify the attacks.

Today descendants of those christians claim “we don’t mind the homosexual as long as they stay away from our kids and stop flaunting their lifestyle”. Many of the christian organizations who work to increase discrimination and violence against Gay and Lesbian Americans claim that homosexuals molest and recruit children. This completely discredited lie drives a good deal of the violence committed against our community.

Mercifully the most virulent of the christian hate groups spreading these lies are now being tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is the same organization that helped bring down the Klu Klux Klan and monitors extremist groups in the United States.

When I was young we lived for a couple of years in a small town in Oklahoma. An interracial couple moved in a few houses down from us. John was the only black man in town, he came for a job in the oilfield. A couple of weeks after they arrived someone spray painted “go home nigger and nigger lover” in big letters on their garage door. Three nights later someone poured gasoline on their front and back porches and burned their house down. They barely escaped by crawling through a window. John actually had to break back into the house to rescue their 5 year old daughter. They left town two days later.

Over the next several weeks no one spoke of the terrible crime that was committed or how the family barely escaped with their lives. No one was arrested. What I remember most is everyone talking about how mixed race couples are sinners. Our methodist minister, yes I did attend church then, even gave a sermon on how mixing races was against gods plan. This was in the late 1970′s.

The same christian groups who burned down African American homes a half a century ago to run the “black folks” out of town are burning down Gay and Lesbian American homes today for the same reason. Bible based bigotry is not a justification to terrorize Americans citizens and must be stopped.

Christians Attempt To Burn Georgia Man Alive For Being Gay

Christians Firebomb A Gay Man's House

A christian group tried to execute a rural Georgia man by burning him alive in his home over the weekend. A rock was thrown through Chris Staples windows with a note attached threatening to kill him for being Gay. Hours later Staples’ home was engulfed in flames, he barely escaped with his life.

Chris Staples, a citizen of Carroll County GA, woke up with his home set a blaze after receiving a threatening anti-gay note. Staples gives the account of a rock with the threatening note being thrown through his window as he was watching t.v. and finishing a cigarette. He said the note read “We know you’re gay. And God hates gays. You won’t be raping anybody in the county and God’s going to make sure that you burn in hell.’ And something about my daddy… my daddy will make sure you burn in hell.” Several [hours] later Staples woke up with his house burning to the ground, and was luck to barely escape.

via GA Man Attacked For Being Gay « Entertainment News | Celebrity Gossip | Technology News | Welcome to Flynews.com.

Note the reference to raping. Registered christian hate groups use the discredited lie that Gay men rape children to incite violence against our community. These same hate groups claimed that black men were raping white women to stir violence against the African American community half a century ago.

The Carrol County Georgia Sheriff’s Office is investigating the attempted murder and arson as a possible hate crime.

“This is the first time I’ve dealt with anything of this nature in 16 years,” said Capt. Shane Taylor of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

“I can’t believe anyone would have such hatred in their heart as to do somebody like that, especially when they don’t even know him. They don’t know him,”…

via Gay Man’s Bedroom Set On Fire – News Story – WSB Atlanta.

Georgia has a long history of “lynching” those seen as undesirable in the eyes of christianity. The Klan and other christian hate groups have used lies, intimidation and violence in an attempt to drive the “immoral” from their lands. Cross burning, hangings and arson were utilized to terrorize the black and Gay populations in the America’s south.

The recent victories in establishing equality for Gay and Lesbian Americans have caused a resurgence in violence from these hate groups.  Nearly 14 hate crimes are committed every day against the Gay and Lesbian community, and that number is growing.  The majority of victims are attacked in their homes.

If you are a Gay or Lesbian American living in a rural area take some basic precautions around your home. Inexpensive motion detector lighting attached to an alarm is a very effective deterrent. Plus it will wake you up to defend against these christian cowards attacking in the middle of the night. A good shotgun is also handy.

FBI Now Investigating Hate Crime Against Tennessee Lesbian Couple

Christians Burn Lesbian Couples Home

The FBI has stepped in to investigate the hate crime against Carol Ann and Laura Stutte, a lesbian couple whose home was burned on September 4th. The Stutte’s endured years of threats and verbal abuse from neighbors who believe discrimination against Gay and Lesbian Americans is acceptable.

Carol Ann Stutte and her partner, Laura Stutte, are afraid to return alone to what is left of their Vonore home in Monroe County.

After being victims of an arson and having the word “queers” spray painted on their garage, the lesbian couple is fearful for their safety.

“We would love to stay (in the area),” Carol Stutte said Friday. “But we will never, never rebuild (on that property) again. I take someone with me constantly — one or two people to make sure I’m OK while I’m up there.”

Detective Travis Jones, with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, said authorities aren’t releasing many details about the fire — which happened Sept. 4 at about 10 p.m.

“It is an arson and we are continuing the investigation,” he said Friday. “There are people of interest in the case,” and authorities, including the state Bomb and Arson Squad, are still conducting interviews.

The Stutte’s home was a complete loss. “There is nothing left,” Carol Stutte said. “They are calling it a black hole,”

The couple, who have been together for more than 16 years, were in Nashville celebrating the five-year anniversary of moving into their Vonore home, the night it was burned to the ground.

Carol Stutte’s daughter from a previous marriage would have been at the home at the time, but decided to go with the couple to Nashville.

“She would’ve been trapped,” Carol Stutte said.

Carol Stutte said she and Laura have been harassed and threatened, specifically by one neighbor, on and off for about five years.

via Lesbian couple’s Vonore home burns; arson suspected.

If you are being terrorized by a christian or member of a hate group note the following points.

- Document every occasion of harassment and violence.  Make sure someone outside your home has a copy of the document in case the christian hate monger decides to burn your house.

- Install a night vision trail camera’s outside your home. These self contained motion activated cameras will capture any illicit activity around your home even at night. Make sure someone outside your home knows about the cameras. Do not trust the police to remove the memory card, they tend to be lost.

- Report every incident to the police and demand a copy of the report. Police reports will establish a pattern of harassment and are a critical resource if you are forced to defend yourself. Unfortunately police reports have the habit of disappearing in bigoted departments so be sure you have copies. Make sure someone outside your home also has a copy.

- If the harassment appears to be directed by a church or hate group report them to the FBI’s Terrorism Tips Line (800-225-5324). Many times local law enforcement officers are members of the very christian hate group you need protection from.  Don’t risk it! Go directly to the FBI.

- Many states allow the use of lethal force in self defense situations.  Castle Laws, for instance, give people the legal right to defend themselves in their home with deadly force. Research your state laws and determine the lethal defense boundaries.

Do not tolerate violence against yourself or your family.

Christian Hate Kills

According to a US Health and Human Services report:

"gay adolescents were two to three times more likely than peers to attempt suicide, accounting for as many as 30% of completed youth suicides each year....26% percent of gay youth are forced to leave home because of conflicts with their families over their sexual identities. Up to half engage in prostitution to support themselves, greatly increasing their risk for HIV infection."

About 5% of youths are gay. If the 30% figure is accurate then their suicide rate is up to six times greater than the general youth population. Using this data, it appears that homophobia, largely maintained by conservative and mainline Christian churches, is responsible for deaths of young gays and lesbians in the United States at a rate greater than the church exterminated "witches" during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance.
