Anti-Gay Group Claims Gay Death Message Was A Hack

MinnMarriage

Minnesota For Marriage is now claiming that someone hacked their Facebook and posted that Leviticus quote calling for gay men to be put to death. The anti-gay group today posted the following message:

Good Morning – Last night our Deputy Campaign Manager, Andy Parrish's personal email, Facebook, and Twitter accounts were hacked by an individual who posted the Leviticus verse below. We are currently working with Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and Apple to see who hacked Andy's account and who posted this message.

Clearly we would never advocate for anyone to be put to death – We strongly believe that people are entitled to love whomever they choose, but they are not entitled to redefine marriage for all of society.

Are you buying what they're selling?

    Anonymous hacking into computers again, this is proof that Anonymous is really anti-gay Christians who wear the mask of Guy Fawkes who was a Catholic Christian terrorist who tried to kill the king and his government to set up a Christian dictatorship.

    i still don’t get how Deb & Sue marrying somehow redefines marriage for all of society.

    unless these people only get married so they can spite the gays….

    BUT clearly that is exactly what your book is asking/telling you to do, so I guess we will only practice certain things and not others (not that I promote the killing of anyone but hey it’s your rules not mine).

    I do not believe them. Why wont they take it down if it was a hack. It is still on their FB page. They are liars!

  5. Bill says

    Why would they deny this?

    It sounds like they are ASHAMED of their holy book, not PROUD of it.

  6. Terry says

    LIARS. They hate gay people to the point that they call for our deaths, but when they’re called out for that hate, then they blame it on someone else. They’re haters and liars and always will be.

  7. AJ says

    Anonymous did it to mess with them, I bet. To draw attention to what hate-mongers they are, hiding behind this “love the sinner hate the sin” crap.

  8. alguien says

    complaining about getting hacked is about the oldest trick in the book-since the internet went into common use, at any rate.

    don’t believe ’em for a second.

    Hey – Typical republican thinking – ‘…if it don’t sell , ya take it outta the window…’

    This is BS. Facebook, once you prove to them that you were hacked, can do multiple things to get your page back under your control. They can lock the page so that no one can access it while they attempt to trace the hack or just have you reset your password and give you back control. Also, to have the same password for your @me, @gmail, Twitter and Facebook accounts is the dumbest thing anyone can do in the modern age. You’re only as string as your weakest password and I’m sure that this guy’s password was something like “12345” or “God” or even “password”

    I’m not sure why this is anymore controversial posted on their website than it is in the Bible.

  12. says

    A little further on in the same chapter of Leviticus, it says if a man has sex with a woman during her “sickness”, both should be put to death. Sickness? Is menstruation a sickness? Do modern Christian women believe this? Have attitudes changed since this was first written? If so, why can’t attitudes change toward homosexuality?

    If “people are not entitled to redefine marriage for all of society”, Christianists are not entitled to define the natural occurrence of menstruation as a sickness.

    And besides, why are Christianists quoting from the Old Testament? Doesn’t the New Testament change a lot of things…isn’t that why it is called New?

    If biblical sicknesses of menstruation and homosexuality cannot be cured, why try to cure them? They are natural human attributes, not sicknesses.

    I can believe that. People get hacked, the most common password is passw0rd. FB really needs to have a response division for celebrities, organizations and businesses to put out more believable press releases proving how they were hacked. Cuz that info needs to come out ASAP after a hacked attack like this.

  14. Vint says

    In all fairness, it’s clear that they’re just trying to redefine “hacking”.

  15. says

    We know who they are. We know what they think. the bigots can rant and rave…..but now they are being shamed when they publicly display their bigotry.

    if they are sorry let them come out and denounce this antediluvian desert spawned gibberish.
    What a load of bollix.

  16. Francis says

    Even if it were hacked, the way I see it, they base their anti-gay views on the Bible anyway. Now they’re essentially calling the Bible hateful. Seems they’re truly desperate to look good.

    We’ll see where this “hacked” deal goes and if these bigots are lying.

  17. Caliban says

    They cite the Bible as the basis of their homophobia. (“God don’t like it and I don’t like it too!”)

    Yet someone posts the most commonly quoted Bible passage on the issue and suddenly they “don’t know nothin’ ’bout hating no homos”? They DO know that, unlike homosexuality, not bearing false witness made it to God’s Top Ten list, right?

  18. says

    amen, Caliban.

    add onto that the reality that the GOP’s fiscal ideals are a direct contradiction of pretty much everything attributed to Christ in the bible.

    ditto the GOP rallying cry for “prayer in school” which flagrantly disobeys Christ’s commandment to keep prayer PRIVATE.

    but hey, i guess a lot of today’s Christians never read the Sermon on the Mount….

  19. Robert In WeHo says

    Nope, not buying it. This exact tweet has been posted by others in the Christian Hate movement. This is a re-post from another christian bigot’s tirade…

  20. Mona says

    Perhaps the original post was the result of a hacker. But what excuses the commenters who agreed with the post? Were they ALL hackers?

  21. JAMES says

    Someone hacked into their account to post a message they probably think Minn For Marriage would approve of? Mhm. A hacker who wants to post a message like that would have hacked into an account of an organization or person who advocates marriage equality, not opposses it. I doubt they were hacked. I’m not really buying it.
