Crazed Bible-Wielding Duo Threatens to Rape Lesbians

Recently outside of a "Gay-Day" rally in Michigan, two counter-protesters (who appear to be from the Twelve Tribes of Israel or a similar hate-group) told one of the lesbians attending the rally that she would be raped in the impending race-wars, as prescribed by the book of Isaiah. The lesbians called the police of course, but the police were unable to do anything. I certainly support the First Ammendment, and I don't know that I can say these guys said anything that can be considered a direct threat, so I agree the police had little they could do. However, it seems to me that this is a prime example of the sort of lunacy religion leads people two. Not that I believe all religious people think this way, but it certainly does not help when deviants such as these can fall back on a revered religious text which clearly condones rape throughout it's pages.

The video clearly only shows one side of the story, and offers no clues as to how this confrontation began, but it is pretty clear to me that these two miscreants are the sort of biblical literalists that make religion dangerous.
