Activist Arrested for Threatening Elton John's Life


Elton John


Neal Horsley, an anti-abortion activist, has been taken into custody after threatening Elton John in internet with a video featuring himself with a sign written, 'Elton John Must Die'.

An anti-abortion activist has been arrested after allegedly making threats on Elton John's life. Neal Horsley is being held in the Fulton County jail in Atlanta, Georgia following his arrest on Wednesday, March 10. He was taken into custody by the police fugitive squad and members of the U.S. Marshal's office and charged with making terrorist threats, criminal defamation and using the Internet to disseminate threats, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution newspaper.

Horsley, who plans to run for governor of Georgia, was outraged when the singer suggested Jesus Christ was gay in a Parade magazine interview in February, and he wrote an angry online response, entitled "Why Elton John Must Die".

A viral video, which appeared on YouTube, also featured footage of Horsley holding an "Elton John Must Die" sign outside the star's Peachtree Road home in Atlanta. Horsley previously landed in trouble for misusing the Internet in 2002, when a federal appeals court judge ruled his online condemnation of abortion doctors featured illegal threats.
