Death Threats For Fired Protester

Earlier today I reported about Adam Smith, the straight Arizona biotech CFO who was fired yesterday for berating a Chick-Fil-A drive-thru employee and then posting a YouTube clip of the incident. According to Smith, who is the married father of four children, two of whom were adopted with special needs, his family has been receiving death threats from God's Gentle People. Conservative site The Blaze today interviewed Smith and posted a short recap in advance of a longer post to come later today.
He has lost his job as Chief Financial Officer at Vante. (Smith claims that he was not given a chance to really explain himself before being terminated). His family has been threatened with violence and death. (At one point, his email account was getting 3 messages a minute, mostly vulgar and threatening) Because his home address was made public, he cannot live in his house. (And Mr. Smith is a married father of four – two of his children are adopted, special needs kids.) Smith said that his original intent was to follow guidelines laid out in an online video, which included quoting a scripture.
Here's the video that inspired Smith's actions.
