    H*mosexual activists accused of 'domestic terrorism'

    The Mormon church on Friday blamed opponents of California's homosexual marriage ban for sending hoax mailings containing white powder to temples, while a group that also supported the measure condemned "acts of domestic terrorism against our supporters."



    Investigators have not publicly cited any evidence that the mailings were linked to the Mormon church's support of the measure, and a gay rights group in Utah disputed that gay protesters were involved.

    The letters were sent to the Salt Lake City headquarters of the church, where powder spilled on a mail clerk's hand, and to a temple in Los Angeles. Both packages tested nontoxic, the FBI said Friday.

    The homosexual activists are emboldened, and empowered... Reminds me of the crowd pounding on Lot's door, demanding his guests.

    I would like to see the perpetrators tried as terrorist under our new laws to discourage any future events of this type. Sending a white powder by mail in these days and times and after the anthrax scares is not something to overlook.

    Oh, I agree! But, aren't you forgetting that they are a PC Protected Special Group???

    And, while they are "investigating"... They won't find any leads to follow...

    No prosecution...

    And, even if they did take it to trial...

    They were just expressing their free speech rights...

    It depends on who sent the powder as to whether or not they would be prosecuted as terrorists. Laws don't apply to everyone the same way.
