‘Love Wins’ Update: Homosexual Marriage Supporter Accosts Wheelchaired Texas Governor

A 32-year-old man accosted Texas Governor Greg Abbott over his support for normal, traditional marriage while the wheelchair-bound Abbott was waiting to board an airplane flight to Austin.

The Austin American-Statesman reported on Wednesday that Governor Abbott, his wife and daughter were approached by another passenger who shook his hand and “then loudly and profanely” expressed his displeasure with Abbott’s objection to redefining marriage.

“I hope you … go to hell because of your stance on gay marriage,” the man told the governor, using an epithet for emphasis, according to Abbott communications director Matt Hirsch, who was with the governor, the American-Statesman reports.

The unidentified bully then made what could be construed as a threat to Governor Abbott, saying as he walked away, “I’m going to see you on the plane.”

Security kept the man off the plane, however, after being put up in a hotel overnight, and after the man’s name came up clean on the Joint Terrorism Task Force database, he was allowed to go free.

“The governor respects and is always willing to listen to the viewpoints of others,” Hirsch said. “He’s grateful for the airport officials who handled the incident in a professional manner.”
