According to the Huffington Post, the Twitter account for a Christian entity called “Christians for a Moral America” has posted several messages to the social network regarding the ill health of pop icon George Michael.
A user who goes by ‘Keith’ in Minnesotta operates the GodsWordIsLaw Twitter account and posted several inflammatory messages on November 26th wishing for the 48 year old ‘Faith’ singer’s death.
“Apparently George Michael has AIDS. Figures since he’s a homosexual and it goes with the territory. Another sodomite bites the dust?” the first of three Saturday tweets read.
“Once George Michael bites the dust, it’ll be the perfect time to roll out new anti-sodomy ads. This lifestyle is clearly dangerous” read another tweet. “Pray for George Michael’s demise. He has chosen a satanic lifestyle and must meet an appropriate end” read the final tweet on the subject before the user became embroiled in several arguments with Twitter users responding to the offensive material.
However, Christians for a Moral America seems not to be an organization at all, but a conservative blog run by a single user on Google’s Blogger platform.
The blog only dates back to November 2, and describes itself as “a new organization which aims to help protect religious liberty and uphold Christian values in America.”
The Twitter account seems to have gone online on November 22, and mostly rails against LGBT issues and personalities.
George Michael was hospitalized last week due to complications from pneumonia while on tour in Europe. The tweets from the Christians for a Moral America account have stirred up strong reactions on the social network, and the user’s account has grown from 78 to 893 in two days since the Huffington Post published the tweets for the first time on Tuesday.
