Marry a same-sex partner -- kill a soldier. That's what these people say:

Are Americans In Iraq Being Killed Because of Homosexual “Marriage"?
Is anyone really hurt by allowing homosexuals to marry? Should our attentions be focused on other issues that are more apt to consume the attention of the broader consensus of the population: for example, our efforts to bring democracy to Iraq? 

In Iraq last week, the Ansar al-Sunnah Army (and two other insurgent groups) issued a statement warning the populace not to participate in upcoming elections.  According to the statements (which were reported by the Associated Press on Dec. 31) democracy could lead to the passing of un-Islamic laws, such as
“permitting homosexual marriage.”   To the Muslim extremists who are fighting our soldiers, accepting American political culture means that “gay marriage” is following close behind....

In short, the issue of homosexual marriage is very important, not only here in Massachusetts but around the world.  Our failure as citizens of this state to undo the miscarriage of justice perpetrated last year and end gay marriage is causing insurgents in Iraq to resist democratic reform and kill American soldiers.... 

This is from MassNews, a rag for which the folks at Free Republic have much fondness. (Emphasis and link as in the original.)

The Ansar al-Sunnah Army beheads people on videotape and has claimed responsibility for the Mosul mess-tent bombing. Nice to know that the MassNews people think its demands should be accorded a respectful hearing.
