After it was announced that marriage equality won in the nonbinding referendum in Australia, rightwingers have been angry. One conservative magazine went so far as to compare marriage equality to the devil.

And now they’re directly taking out that anger on LGBTQ people.

Kirk and Andrew Muddle have received hateful messages at their home in a small city north of Brisbane, Queensland. The letters were written (poorly) on sheets of paper and left in their mailbox.

How dare you to-

-Disrupt the whole neiborhood

-With only just a yes vote. (49% yes) [Ed. note: Actually, 63% of Australians voted in favor of marriage equality.]

-Do you realise there are children and elderly in this area!!

No respect,

No is no.

No is no!

No to gays!

And, knowing your affinity with back passages shouldn’t have dogs!

“Andrew’s lived there for 11 years and I’ve lived there for five and that’s the first time its ever happened,” Kirk said.

He said in post on Facebook that he felt horrified and sad when he got the messages.

Still, he wanted to share them to remind people that homophobia still exists. “This is just to remind everyone the fight’s not over…. and it probably never will be.”

Kirk told Yahoo News that the worst message was the one about his dogs, but that this is still just one hateful person.

“One guy doesn’t make up the whole of Australia,” he said.
