A Georgia man is in custody of police for making terrorist threats, the Associated Press reports.

Police arrested Neal Horsely Wednesday. Atlanta Police Sgt. Curtis Davenport did not tell AP the reason for Horsely’s arrest, but his son Nathan said it could have something to do with a video his father posted online.

Horsely had previously posted an Internet video of himself holding an “Elton John must die” sign.

“What Elton John has done is desecrated the image of the Lord Jesus Christ, blasphemed the Lord Jesus Christ,” Horsley said in the video.

This rebellion was in reference to John’s statement in Parade Magazine.

He said Jesus was a “compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.”

In the 1990s, Horsely built a Web site to publish the addresses and names of various doctors who offered abortion services.

For authorities to release Horsely from jail, he must live with his son and pay 10 percent of his $40,000 bail in cash.
