Baja Betty’s and Flicks sent hate lettersOnline Only, Top Highlights, Around the City Sunday, June 29th, 2014
10News in San Diego has reported that at least two gay bars in Hillcrest have received threatening letters.
Eddie Reynoso, marketing manager at Baja Betty’s, showed 10News the 15-page letter written by “Eddie777, servant and messenger of God Yahweh.” Yahweh is known as the proper name of God in the Old Testament.
The letter, received just over a week ago has caused some concern. “That kind of raised a little bit of an alarm,” Reynoso told 10News.
The 10 News report revealed that the address on the letter is an imaginary Los Angeles address. The rambling letter calls the bar immoral, full of child molesters and sex addicts, and issues a warning if the bar doesn’t shut down.
Reynoso read the letter to 10News: “God will punish you Mr. owner and staff, with luck, back luck, bad karma, injuries, car accidents, loss income, fight with other people and worst your future death.”
A few blocks down Flicks video bar also received a similar letter. According to the 10News report the bar staff posted the letter on its Facebook page, and bartender Christopher Charles said, “Posting it on Facebook shows those threats are still out there and that we aren’t afraid. We want people to know.”
Vigilance has been stepped up at both bars as a result of the letters.
