A letter claiming to be written by a “servant of Jesus” has threatened to inflict “killer storms” on Tasmania if same-sex marriage isn’t repealed.
The note, which some Facebook users reported discovering in their letterboxes around the city of Hobart, warns locals to “repent.”
Tasmanian LGBTIQ advocate Rodney Croome shared an image of a similar poster put up in the Salamanca Arts Cente’s courtyard which is signed in Jesus’ name as a “warning by the hand of my servant.”
“This is a warning to turn from your idols, from your drug use, drunkenness. Thefts, fornications, adulteries,” the letter reads.
“Stop teaching your children the ways of destruction.
“I, Yeshua/Jesus Christ am going to have my way upon Tasmania for its whoredoms.
“Plead with your senator to amend the marriage act, ban unbiblical divorce, ban adulterous marriages, ban fornication, ban pornography, ban gay marriage, stop killing the unborn lest I rape your state that there be poverty like you have not seen.”
“If you do not repent, then I will bring killer storms and… the west coast will be shaken in my fury and Launceston will be torn up.”
“And what of the North Coast?”
In the Facebook photo, someone has clearly taken the initiative to scribble on the poster, “How about you just chill the fuck out mate?”
