By D. Gregory Smith (Butte, Montana) SEPT 3 | Is it safe to be gay under the Big Sky? Fuck no.
Tim Ravndal whose facebook page lists the following information:

Tim Ravndal, Montana Constitutional Warriors, Montana Coordinator for the Second Amendment March, Montana Coordinator for the Tenth Amendment Center, Montana Coordinator for the National Nullification Center and Montana Tea Party Movement, Organizer;
PO Box 287 Townsend, Montana 59644  [ ]
Hosts a conversation on his Facebook page where he comments on an article by the Billings Gazette on the lawsuit by the Montana ACLU, by seven same-sex couples, condones torture and hanging of "fruits" and makes explicit inference to Matthew Shepard's murder:
Tim Ravndal: "Marriage is between a man and a woman period! By giving rights to those otherwise would be a violation of the constitution and my own rights"
Keith Baker: "How dare you exercise your First Amendment Rights?"
Dennis Scranton: "I think fruits are decorative. Hang up where they can be seen and appreciated. Call Wyoming for display instructions."
Tim Ravndal: "@Kieth, OOPS I forgot this aint(sic) America no more! @ Dennis, Where can I get that Wyoming printed instruction manual?"
Dennis Scranton: Should be able to get info Gazette archives. Maybe even an illustration. Go back a bit over ten years."

But see for yourself:

Disgusting. I found it here: [ Link ]

If you think I'm going to read it, you're wrong. I don't need to get more upset.

I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that these are actually malicious sadists who like violence and use these arguments to try to justify their vile thoughts.
