The American Atheists posted on its Facebook fan page yesterday that it had received death threats against its President, Dave Silverman, and Communications Director, Blair Scott. Police were notified and are reportedly taking the threats seriously. "Religion makes some people too crazy," the post notes.
Email and voice mail threats were made about torture, kidnapping, and shooting.
American Atheists posted a portion of the email with an explanation:
"the minute you [Blair] step to speake, a 30 30 round will be put in your head, and then you will meet the satan and demons of hell that you do not believe in……………..dave however, will be taken and tortured for weeks till he crys out for 'god' to save him"
From the voice mail:
"If you [Blair] or Dave ever email me again, I will hunt you down like a bloodhound, tie you to a tree and torture you for weeks… damn f*ing [edited] atheists…"
He was getting email because he signed up on our web page as a user in order to stalk Dave and Blair. He has posted on their online videos, etc.
The voice mail can be heard here.
