"Leave or Die Fags": A Message for Clarendon Gay Couple (VIDEO)

CLARENDON, Texas (Thu, Oct 04) - A Texas-based gay couple fearing their lives in danger after they found a death threat spray-painted on their front porch when they got up on Monday (October 01).

Clarendon Gay Couple Fear for Their Lives after 'Leave or Die Fags' Message
Joshua Harrison and Jeremy Jeffers, a gay couple in Clarendon, a town of about 2,000 people in the Texas panhandle, say they woke up to find a message reading "Leave or Die Fags" painted on their front porch.

The couple, who have been together for about a year, said they noticed a change in town attitude toward them after an inflammatory ad about the "homosexual movement" written by a pastor appeared in the local paper.

 "I'm absolutely terrified because if there are people in this town that are willing to go to the lengths to vandalize our house and to scare us, they they might be going the lengths to do physical harm on us," Harrison told local media.

Local officials, including the sheriff, have reportedly said they are treating the threatening graffiti as a hate crime. Donley County sheriff Charles "Butch" Blackburn told media that he does "consider it a hate crime."

The couple says they are now fearing for their lives and are considering moving away.
