With every report on the anti-Prop 8 protests in California, things get worse and more shocking. Bill O’Reilly reported–with video footage–on a protest that deliberately and shockingly disrupted a church service at Mount Hope Church near Lansing, Michigan. It included one lesbian couple running to the front of the church, kissing, and running throughout the church with their friends, tossing hundreds of fliers as they chanted, “it’s o-kay…to be gay!” Watch the clip and see for yourself:
Newsflash, guys: this is NOT cool. You’re not winning any converts in their crowd any more than they’re winning any in yours. The more you act like this, the more they’re resolved to defeat you.
Even worse, Sunday night saw a group that always does outreach on 18th street in the Castro neighborhood (the gay neighborhood in San Francisco) was viciously and brutally attacked in the worst hate crime committed yet. I found it at Michelle Malkin’s site. These people were calmly having an outdoor service when a large group of homosexuals, convinced they were protesting the No on 8 crowd, went so far as to steal jackets and bibles right off the worshipers. One woman was hit upside the head with her own bible, knocked to the ground, and kicked, while one man was all but molested and another had a gay man look him in the face and say, “I am going to kill you.” Police in riot gear had to escort them back to their van, even with the crowd following and chanting, swearing to follow them “all the way home”:
I’ll post a vidblog about this on Sunday. For now, I’d like to know what all of you think about this. With the protests getting worse by the minute, I’m afraid someone is going to end up either seriously hurt or even dead, and the gay community is going to crucify itself by refusing to acknowledge that we have to get a rein on this thing. I think it got out of hand long ago.
What say you?
