A Carroll County man believes he was the victim of a hate crime after his house was set on fire late Sunday, according to WSB-TV. Chris Staples told WSB that a rock, with an anti-gay note attached, was thrown through a window in his home and several hours later, he awoke to flames in his bedroom.
According to WSB, Staples said of the note:
"It said, ‘We know you're gay. And God hates gays. You won't be raping anybody in the county and God's going to make sure that you burn in hell.’ And something about my daddy... my daddy will make sure you burn in hell."
Staples' mother, who lives across the street from her son, told WSB she believed the attack was because he is gay:
“I can’t believe anyone would have such hatred in their heart as to do somebody like that, especially when they don’t even know him. They don’t know him.”
