Billboard In Mexico Calls For Gays To Be Put To Death
A "Christian" billboard that has been erected in the south eastern Mexican state of Chiapas is calling for the death of gays, according to "Biblical law."
The billboard, funded by a local church and a mayor, are the anti-gay movement's response to marriage equality washing over Mexico in a state-by-state process. "No to the legalization of initiatives that are contrary to the commandments of God—abortion, gay marriage, legalization of marijuana etc," the billboard starts before its dangerous and bolded message that reads, "The wages of sin are death."
Mexico bans the discrimination based on sexual orientation, a law that the many who are outraged over the billboard are using in their efforts to have it taken down. But the backers of the billboard, including Chilo mayor Leonardo Rafael Aguilar Guiraro’s Chiapas Green Foundation and the Espiranza Segura Jesus Christ church headed by Pastor Joshua Perez, insist their call for deadly violence against the LGBT community is necessary to keep the sky from falling.
