Hateful quake website suspended by host

A hateful website which blames gay men and lesbians for the utter devastation and heartbreak of the Christchurch quake has been suspended.

A message on the website's URL reads "this website you were trying to reach is temporarily unavailable ... Please check back soon."

The site's owner is asked to contact Bluehost as soon as possible.

Complaint calls and emails have flooded into the site's host over the past few days and despite Bluehost telling those who have expressed disgust that it could not take action without a court order, the site can not currently be viewed.

GayNZ.com has been contacted by numerous people, from gay people to straight parents of gay children, to Christians, all expressing utter disgust at the site and sharing their love and solidarity for the people of Christchurch.

One woman writes: "I am shocked and horrified that this could even be thought of at this terrible time. I am a christian and also and mother of a beautiful gay boy. How dare these christians print this, shame on you. My love and prayers are for all those dear people in Christchurch and their families."
