Our culture is now at a point when believing the reality that marriage is between one man and woman results in death threats. For ten years a tax preparer in Radcliff has posted a sign on his door, along with other notices for customers, that he does not recognize same-sex marriages. Kenneth Randall gladly serves homosexuals, but will not prepare taxes for same-sex couples because it violates his religious convictions. As a result, he has received vulgar voicemails, online harassment, and death threats. Randall said, “I consider tolerance to be a two-way street, and I don’t see any coming from the other side.” Threats and abuse by LGBT activists toward those they disagree with are incompatible with civility, and those who believe in tolerance in the best sense of the word will condemn such actions.
