Anonymous religious group threatens to use lesbian couple as target practice if they don’t relocate
20 July 2013

An anonymous anti-gay group has threatened violence to a lesbian couple in Canada if they don’t move cities.

The authors of two letters, who write ‘in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, our savior,’ claim to have been watching Susan Belyea and Karen Dubinsky for the past few weeks.

The group behind the letter, who claim their head office is in the ‘Deep South’, says they were recently been energized by the Supreme Court’s decision that ruled gay marriage bans the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Prop 8 unconstitutional.

In the letter, the women are told that if they take the letter to the police, the group will use ‘violence surgically’ to persuade them.

The second follow-up letter threatens that ‘fun and games will turn into deadly serious action’ if the women don’t leave the area. The letter threatens that youngsters armed with BB guns will hunt the women down.

According to TheWhig.com, Kingston police ‘are aware’ of the letters, and Constable Chris Gobeil who has been assigned to the case said: ‘It’s quite fresh information and we are treating this very seriously. However, we want to make sure we have the appropriate information as well.’

The two letters are reprinted in full below, and can be found online on Imgur where ellenn posted photos of the two letters.

‘Lesbian bitches,

We are a small but dedicated group of Kingston residents devoted to removing the scourge of homosexuality in our city. We know you and have been following you for the past several weeks and we wish for you to leave this city, before it is too late, for you. This will be the first of many reminders, each escalating to higher and higher levels of harassment and derailment. Since we have nothing personal against you, only against your sexuality, we suggest you move to more conductive climes like Vancouver, or preferably San Francisco.’

Our base, head office in Deep South, has been energized by the recent US Supreme Court decisions legalizing same sex marriage. We feel that unless homosexuals reconvert to heterosexuality that life under this planet, under the umbrella of our Lord Jesus Christ, will become unbearable. Having observed you, we feel that you are committed lesbians unlikely to convert, hence this (first and only) gentle attempt to make you move.’ 

If you do not, and take this letter to police, as we expect, we will know about this, since we have contacts in Kingston Police. Our efforts to relocate you will escalate. We wish to avoid this scenario. We are primarily non-violent, but use violence surgically to persuade people. We hope you understand without us painting to lurid a picture.’ 

In the last several years we have relocated a few people like you from the Kingston area, through a set of incentives and effective persuasion. Please join their ranks ASAP. We will watch and wait, and then strike, at home and office, as need arises. These are not empty threats. MOVE, or else!’ 

Thank you for your attention. We await effective action on your part, ASAP. You are not going to be safe at home, office or anywhere else if you ignore this message! However if you take this seriously, and make attempts to move, someone from our organization will contact you to make your relocation easier financially. If, additionally, you persuade another couple like yourselves to move, we will provide them financial assistance and yourselves a bonus for your help. We are a committed bunch and come hell of high water, we will move you out. Best under congenial circumstances, don’t you think?’ 

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, our saviour.’

‘Lesbos:

As a followup, we had a group meeting yesterday on how best to deal with you. Some of our younger members want to have fun chasing ‘lesbos’. We have brought them BB guns and today they are doing target practice, so that they can hunt you down. It is regrettable that in Canada, real guns are hard to find, so BB it shall be. I can assure you BB pellets hurt!!’

This is thrilling for the youngsters not so much to older members who would much rather see serious action rather than playing with BB guns. However youngsters also want to have their fun, and what better targets than you?’

Take our previous letter seriously or fun and games will turn into deadly serious action.’
