Advocating for gay marriage is a homicidal endeavor, argues one opponent.

According to a statement released by Bob Peters, president of Morality in Media, the gay rights movement is directly linked to the epidemic of mass murders currently overwhelming America.

In an April 4 press release titled 'Connecting the Dots: The Link Between Gay Marriage and Mass Murders', Peters argues that gay marriage advocates have fueled the environment responsible for the murderous mayhem.

Peters notes that the “underlying problem is that increasingly we are in a 'post-Christian' society, where Judeo-Christian faith and values have less and less influence. ... This secular value system is also reflected in the 'sexual revolution', which is the driving force behind the push for 'gay marriage'; and the Iowa Supreme Court decision is another indication that despite all the damage this revolution has caused to children, adults, family life and society, it continues to advance relentlessly.”

Then adds, “It most certainly is not my intention to blame the epidemic of mass murders on the gay rights movement!”

“Talk about exploiting a tragedy to advance an agenda,” David Corn at 'Mothers Jones' groans.

“In his statement on gay marriage and mass murder, Peters notes that Christianity and Judaism teach 'that we are to love our neighbors and ourselves and to forgive others'. But on the subject of gay marriage, he does seem to have a rather unforgiving approach,” Corn adds.

Arguments that link violence with the modern gay rights movement have become increasingly louder as more states move to recognize gay and lesbian unions. Utah Senator Chris Buttars and Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern have both labeled gay rights advocates “terrorists.” And in his book 'The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party', Scott Lively, the founder of Abiding Truth Ministries, links the movement to violent events that took place in Nazi Germany and argues that gay rights are “dangerous.”
