Anita Bryant expects to
be assassinated by
homosexuals, according to a writer who interviewed her for Playboy magazine.
Author Ken Kelley.
said in observations accompanying the interview in the May issue
that he believes Miss
Bryant's fear-is realistic.
Miss Bryant made no
statement in the interview concerning a possible assassination
attempt, but Kelly," 26,
said Monday that "We
talked about it a lot, especially after she got a
Pie in the face in Des
Moines. She said, 'At

"I asKed«her if she
expected a grenade.
She said she must expect anything at any
time," he said.
In the magazine, Kelly, writes, "During the
past 12 months, she has
threats, snuff letters
and numerous close
calls with mayhem. But
she has learned to take
it in stride."
Kelley, who traveled
last fall with Miss
Bryant and her bus-
Green, said, "Bob has
learned to cover his investment by smothering his wife with security guards. But, In his
own words, 'Let's face
it — when some militant homosexual kills
Anita, the guy will be
an instant hero.'"
In the interview.
Miss Bryant said homosexual behavior should
be prosecuted as a felony. In some places It is
not a crime and in others it is a misdemean-
"Any time you water
down the law, it just
makes it easier for immorality to become
tolerated," she said.

I Grand inquisitor
An unfortunate aspect of many people who call themselves Christians is that they tend to react violently
against people who disagree with them. When such people occupy positions of power and influence, they
endeavor to translate their attitudes into deeds. Such is
the cause of such bloody tragedies as the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades, the witch-burnings of Salem and
the... persecution of the Jews.
Sadly, civilization has not passed beyond such monstrous insanity. America has its own grand inquisitor
in ... Anita Bryant. Breathing... brimstone, mis unlikely crusader has ... been venting her spleen against
homosexuals. In return she has received much deserved
scorn and contempt.
Now ... homosexuals are not alone as objects of her
holy wrath. Jews, Moslems and indeed all who do not
bow down before her peculiar God are destined for the
fires of hell.
. The handwriting is on the wall. After the children of
Sodom are slaughtered in Anita's program, the children
of Israel and of Mohammed are next.

If Anita Bryant was a true Christian, instead of a
hatemonger, she would welcome death, to meet her
creator, instead of fearing death by assassination.
