You know who Elton John is right? And you know that he's gay correct? Maybe you even know about his controversial statement where he said that "Jesus was gay".
I'm sure that statement rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. As a matter of fact, it really bothered a prominent anti-abortion activist from Atlanta named Neal Horsley.
It bothered him so much that he decided to protest outside of Elton John's condo, holding a sign saying that "Elton John Must Die". He also made a video titled "Why Elton John Must Die" and posted it to YouTube.
He was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats, criminal defamation and using the Internet to disseminate threats.
I have so many thoughts about this but the main one is this: If you disagree with something, why not just ignore it and go on with your life? It's not like Elton John hurt anything (except maybe what certain people think of him) by making that statement. I've heard celebrities say many things before. Just because a celebrity says it doesn't make it gospel.
