Hostility Against Churches Following Gay Marriage Bans

In the weeks following the election in which three states (Arizona, California, and Florida) voted to approve traditional marriage, attacks on Christianity and those standing for marriage have increased dramatically.  An elderly woman who supported the California proposition was attacked and had her cross stomped on in one pro-homosexual rally.    CLICK HERE for video.  In California, many Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) temples were defaced by messages that assaulted the Mormon stance on homosexuality.  Some temples had to cancel their weekly services to keep their congregants safe and even employ around-the-clock guards to prevent further defacing of their buildings.  In Michigan, a group of homosexuals entered a church during the Sunday morning service yelling obscenities like, “It’s okay to be gay”, and “Jesus was a homo”, throwing fliers into the audience.  CLICK HERE for video.  In addition, homosexual activists are now beginning to focus their attention on the African-American community, saying that their homophobia caused them to vote for Prop. 8 in California.  These activists are rapidly lighting up blogs with outrageous comments and threats, and are lambasting Christians and conservatives, calling them hateful.  Also, protests against the gay marriage bans took place on Saturday across the nation, including some in Texas, most notably in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.

 

Now is not the time to be intimidated.  We encourage you to respectfully speak up and let your voice be heard everywhere that these propositions are discussed.

 

What do you think?  What are good ways to let your voice be heard?  What do you think of the issue in general?

    The homosexual community is pushing diligently to make all reference to “homosexuality” being wrong or a sin as clearly defined in the Bible, as a hate crime. If a Christians belief is that homosexuality is a sin and it is a hate crime to talk about it, then why isn’t the physical attacks on Christians, blatent disrespect for a Church building by defacing it and the interuption of a worship service by homosexuals considered hate crimes against Christians?

  3. Jennifer Reeves says:

    I think the pro-gay activists are hurting their cause. They want to have everyone believe that all they want is to have fairness. Well, are they being fair to Christians? I don’t think so. I think their behavior is horrible and even if I didn’t already oppose gay marriage, I would now.

    I THINK THE GAYS ARE MAKING MORE OF A FOOL OF THEMSELVES THAN TRYING TO PROVE THEIR POINT. EVEN THOUGH GAY LIFESTYLE IS WRONG-IF THEY CHOOSE TO LIVE THAT WAY-SO BE IT-BUT WE DON’T HAVE TO TAKE THEIR ABUSE.
    THE CHURCHES ARE SUPPOOSE TO PREACH THE WORD OF GOD-IT IS JUST LIKE A X RATED MOVIE-IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE IT -DON’T GO SEE IT, BUT DON’T BURN DOWN THE THEATER!

    The tactic that these homosexual protesters employed against the little old Christain lady is called jamming and is a marxist tactic deliberately impeding the ability of the person who is trying to exercise their free right to be heard from being seen by the camera by hiding her face from view with their large signs and keeping up a steady screaming rant so that she can;t be heard – In this manner they insure that no side but their’s is seen or heard. This is a facist Brown Shirt;s undersatding of tolerance.
    Mass. is lost.Cailf. is fighting for her life; soon it will be Texas turn, What will our state do to defend herself ?What will she do to protect her children ?
    Two things come to mind-give money to Free Market Foundation and do not donate
    any funds to the Texas Freedom Network because they have strong ties to Planned Parenthood and the homosexual organizations-if TFN is being funded by Texas tax payers , it should be defunded.

    If we think this will go away. It will not, unfortunately, many in the Church are ill equipped to handle this because of their failure to understand. And, I’m sad to say,some will embrace their cause and believe the lie that it is indeed, the civil rights issue of this generation, failing to see that tolerance of the homosexual life style was what destroyed cities.The old lady who was among the homosexual protesters with that huge cross, was not reaching out with love but was provoking a point about her beliefs by standing up for her right to express her views. We as Christians will never win any of these battles like that, they hate Christians, for those very reasons. That is not to say, we must not voice our stance. A cross or signs in the middle of their protest will only fuel their zeal for their cause and their hate. We must be a people of love who will shine brightly Christ in us… Outside of that we will fail.
    Freed from a transgendered life myself, it was Christ love in Christians that led me to Christ, not arguments that I was wrong. Truly, Armando

    What homosexuals don’t realize is that they already have the right to marry, just like anyone else, as long as it’s to someone of the opposite sex. But they can’t marry each other because that’s not what marriage is (i.e. between a man and a woman). What they really want is to have sodomy incorporated into the definition of marriage. This will further undermine the family and eventually erode our Christian liberty in this country. That’s why every Christian must vehemently oppose their efforts, despite their violent protests.

  8. Jill says:

    If men and women do not stand up for what is right then evil will prevail. We must all do our part to love the person but definitely not the sin. The time is now to put action, time and funding to the voice of righteousness.

  9. L. J. Ferguson says:

    Perhaps the little old Christian lady ( with the huge styrofoam cross) was there to remind the homosexual protestors of God’s judgement of their sin-perhaps she was there to remind them of Christ’s love and forgiveness-perhaps she was there to call them to repentance in order to obtain that forgiveness- but we will never know because
    just as they snatched away her cross ( stomping it to bits and abusing her by pushing and spitting on her) ; In true facist fashion . they snatched away her right to free speech- by obsructing her face from view … and silencing her voice.

    There is also the incident of the young evangelical men who went into the Castro district to sing, pray and evangelize which ” provoked ” the homosexuals who surrounded them and attempted to pull down their underwear and insert objects into their body- a large contingent of police had to come to their rescue and escort them out of the district amid lewd catcalls. The Lord must have had a painful memory of Sodom and Gommorah.
