I was reading a story on CBN News when it hit me that the disgust, contempt and violence that Homosexuals once endured in this country has been adopted by them in how they treat the Christian Community. Loosing at the ballot box has made homosexual activists go crazy with the need for revenge and the people they want silenced is the Christian Church. As Christians we believe that homosexuality is a sin, not a lifestyle, and as citizens in a secular society we want our children to adopt our biblical values rather than the “relativism” of state education. This situation is becoming quite a mess because with the losses at the ballot box homosexuals now seem intent on ignoring the peoples will and either undermining it with the courts and cries of discrimination or by intimidating churches via violence and vandalism. It seems to me that with the election of Barak Obama it’s likely that client groups of the democrats, like homosexuals, will gain ground and find an ally in government. Here are some of the highlights from the CBN report:
Churches Vandalized Over Prop 8
November 12, 2008
CBNNews.com – Several churches have been vandalized by apparent supporters of same-sex marriage since the idea was banned in California last week, local police have reported.
Proposition 8, which defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman, was passed 52 to 47 percent on Nov. 4. Since then, local authorities have reported a protest or vandalized property nearly every day.
Last Friday in Orangevale, Calif., a Latter-day Saints chapel sign and several walkways were tagged with the phrases “No on 8” and “hypocrites.”
Saturday morning, two churches in San Luis Obispo, Calif. were also hit. Someone had poured adhesive on a doormat, key pad, and window at a Mormon church, while eggs and toilet paper were thrown at a nearby Assembly of God church.
Mormons, Evangelical Christian churches, and other religious groups were strong supporters of Proposition 8 and provided much of the funding for the measure.
Monday in Utah, home to the Mormon church, the windows of five Latter-day Saints wardhouses were shot out with a BB gun. Police, however, did not openly link the damages to Prop 8 supporters.
About 1,000 gay rights supporters protested outside Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Sunday. Warren publicly endorsed Prop 8 weeks before the Nov. 4 election.
Monday, at least 400 gathered outside a Mormon church in Oakland. Police had to close two highway ramps because of the protest.
Marriage ballots were also passed in Arizona and Florida, but demonstrations have been on a smaller scale in the states.

As if this sort of thing isn’t bad enough I was also reading on World Net Daily about a team of “homosexual activists” (Homosexual Terrorists?) who decided to infiltrate a church service in Michigan and disrupt and profane the worship of its congregants. The report recounted the degrading and disgusting tactics used, and how the homosexual perpetrators notified the media in advance so they could cover the desicration and help the homosexuals spread their vial message publicly. I have no problems with homosexuals demonstrating in front of churchs but this wave of protests is beginning to cross the line from legitimate protest to criminal conduct and the kind of rank intimidation that terrorists strive for. Consider these clips from the World Net Daily Article:
Worshippers at a Bible-teaching church in Lansing, Mich., were stunned Sunday when members of a pro-homosexual, pro-anarchy organization named Bash Back interrupted their service to fling propaganda and condoms around the sanctuary, drape a profane banner from the balcony and feature two lesbians making out at the pulpit.
According to De Leeuw, “Prayer had just finished when men and women stood up in pockets across the congregation, on the main floor and in the balcony.
“‘Jesus was gay,’ they shouted among other profanities and blasphemies as they rushed the stage. Some forced their way through rows of women and kids to try to hang a profane banner from the balcony while others began tossing fliers into the air. Two women made their way to the pulpit and began to ,” he wrote.
According to the alternative Lansing City Pulse – which reported it was notified of the protest ahead of time and sent a reporter along instead of warning the church – the protesters also screamed at parishioners and pulled the church facility’s fire alarm. Printed material protesters distributed said, “We specialize in confronting homophobia, transphobia and every and all other forms of oppression.”
“According to the Bible, Mount Hope Church believes homosexuality to be a sin, just as fornication, stealing, drunkenness, and lying are sins. No sin greater than the next. Mount Hope Church strives to follow Jesus’ example of loving the sinner but not the sin while helping people change their lives for God’s glory and their improved quality of life. Mount Hope Church also recognizes that to each person God grants freewill.”
“The church’s response? After things settled down, the blasphemy ended, the lewd props removed and the families safe from fear of additional men and women running into and past them the pastor took the stage and led the congregation in one more prayer … not for retribution, or divine justice or a celestial comeuppance (that’s what I’d have prayed for) but instead that the troubled individuals who’d just defiled the Lord’s house, so full of anger and hate, would know Jesus’ in their lives and God’s peace that exceeds human understanding,” De Leeuw wrote.
I would point out to homosexuals that “Oppression” is not when someone disagrees with you: it’s when their behavior becomes so intimidating and violent that people feel that they dare not be who they are; in this case: Christian! We’ve come a long way with Civil Rights in this nation, and our fight against discrimination, to where a Black Man is now the President Elect of the United States of America. How Ironic to see a democrat client group, who claims to be covered under the same civil rights addenda and legislation adopting the Jim Crow tactics of the 1940’s and 50’s.
The mass media has long legitimized Christian Bashing and just as most of us said that we’d never live to see a black man President so today we say that Homosexual and others with a beef against Christianity will never be able to put us out of business.
IM NOT SO SURE ABOUT THAT ANYMORE!!!!
Take another look at the tape of the brave Homosexuals terrifying a 72 year old lady and ripping the cross from her and trampling on it.
There is coming a time where Christians are going to have to demonstrate for our rights to be fully Christian and fully American and in my opinion its not to soon to organize to fight homosexuals, atheists, and groups like the ACLU who are actively trying to erase all evidence of Christianity from the landscape on the grounds of being “tolerant”. We let conduct like the above slide at our peril because if we don’t do something its only going to get worse. We need a way to make our voices heard and to afford our beliefs the same legal funding as the ACLU gives to Progressive, Humanist, Socialist “values”, lest we fade from the scene without even a whimper.
