Radical Michigan Gay Group Attacks Christian Church Service
Gateway Pundit ^ | November 10, 2008 | Gateway Pundit

Posted on 11/10/2008 5:47:36 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

A radical gay group in Michigan crashed an evangelical church service on Sunday.
The radicals interrupted the service rushed the pulpit with a megaphone, noise makers, condoms, glitter by the bucket load, confetti, and pink fabric while screaming at the churchgoers.

This was in Michigan.
Right Michigan reported:

On Sunday, November 9, 2008 Michigan liberals sat peacefully through announcements, worship and prayer for the sick, our nation and our President-elect before staging a coordinated, disgusting and repulsive attack on worshipers and the broader concept of the church itself at Lansing's Mount Hope Church.

The lefties were a part of a liberal organization known as Bash Back Lansing and their collection of radical blogs, including one of the state's most widely read "mainstream" progressive blogs (and none which will receive a link on this website) called on "queers and trannies" from across the state and the region to converge on Lansing for what they refer to as an "action."

...over 30 of them showed up in force yesterday. Wearing secret-service style ear pieces and microphones they received the "go" from their ringleader and off they went.

...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 kiss.

Their other props? I'll let them tell you in their own words... from another of their liberal blogs:

"(A) video camera, a megaphone, noise makers, condoms, glitter by the bucket load, confetti, pink fabric...yeh."
Don't expect the mainstream media to pick up on this.

Bash Back supporters at Infoshop News welcomed their attack.

er what happened to tolerance

also do these homo’s not understand it is not all church goers whom are against them and their view and agenda.

It is people like me who do not go to church anymore who are dead set against them.

will they crash my house now, if so they better remember that this state has the castle law.

Hmmm......you think some of the congregation might start “packing” to go to services from now on?

Gov Schwarz (Calif)opposition to the gay marriage ban is a reversal motivated by political vulnerability, Feinstein going after his office. Watch wife, Shriver, pull some Kennedy family ties to make her the Intelligence Chair to entice her from Governor. That was for a price. You think maybe leading an effort to reverse this trophy Supreme Court decision?

They just need a focal point. The church has, historically, been the most vocal against the “alternate lifestyle”, therefore, their much needed focal point. ;-)

If it were my Church,I'd ask for permission to bring my German Shepherds to the service.I guarantee they they will sit quietly by the door until people like that came in.Then we would see how fast perverts can run.

A birdie I know tells me the Anarchy movement is growing on Campus here in MI. Combine that with the sense of entitlement and fervor of the Obamaista’s and that is not a cocktail I want to sample... This might or might not be a reflection of all mentioned above.

Crashing down the doors, seeking to have relations with Lots visitors? These don't need to be stricken blind...they already are spiritually blind.

Glitter by the bucket load?

I doubt it was actually in buckets, but I imagine that folks shouting about gays and starting to toss something from a bucket could be taken as an attack using a biological weapon (aids tainted blood for example).

Seems like a pretty foolish thing for them to do as I imagine their attack (which it was) may have been easily viewed early on to be an actual physical, violent attack. (And, if with various teams surrounding your congregation as the article states, do you really want to wait and see if they are going to do you physical harm? I suppose you have to or you’ll end up in jail.)

Also, not so sure how persuasive their method was if they were trying to get the congregation to be more tolerant of them.

I have started to look into this, but so far it is coming up fiction. I find it impossible to believe that not one single local news source has reported on this, yesterday or today, including the Lansing City Pulse, which is cited in the “piece.” Even the Mount Hope Church website makes no mention of it.

It's becoming fairly obvious these people need to be dealt with by the American people since the political and legal entities are paralyzed by fear of committing the sin of not following political correctness.

These freaks have moved from having exercising the right to legitimate protest for their lifestyle to outright lawlessness

The church membership should have taken them all out to the parking lot for a serious beating.

Their right to protest ending at the line where they overstepped the rights to the free exercise of religion

Quakers at one time were extreme radicals attacking churches and making life totally unbearable for peaceful church goer.

Eventually, some had their necks stretched and they become more mainlined

This is show churches that don't endorse the gay agenda will be intimidated into silence.

They brought in condoms with them?

Part of the criticism that gay groups have about their image, is that straight society thinks gays focus too much on their sex lives. Gays like to tell us that they are just like anyone else, living their lives, etc. Which I’m sure is true for some, but what conclusion would you draw about protesting homosexuals interrupting your church service and waving condoms around??????

How sad that the children of the church had to see this. Are we Christians going to rethink our prevailing silence and nice-nice behavior? Jesus was the one who overturned tables and threw out the money changers.

We don’t march and threaten gays with axes, axe handles, ball bats and other weapons. As done in by Hate Filled Gays in the picture linked below:

Nor do we threaten elderly gays and rip their rainbows away from them. However gays committed this hate crime against an elderly Christian woman as shown in the link below. There will be a short bumper ad before it starts:

I have a silly little question...if they want inside the church so much why don't they just make their own instead of bothering others? People do it all the time.
Truth is...these goons don't care about the church or the bible...or the gay population (who mostly mind their own business). They are commies who want to intimidate people and destroy others rights to freedom of religion.

These phony militants have infiltrated every “movement” in America... equal rights, feminism, you name it.

Here is how it's been being done and why...

This is a ‘HATE’ crime -according to the P.C. definition.

When idiots can barge in and interrupt a CHURCH service with deviant mayhem in America, it’s time to fight back.

HARD.

Maybe I am not as good a Christian as I ought to be but these guys would have regretted doing this in a church that I was a member of. I know I would have to ask for forgiveness later!

My parish Knights of Columbus has some big guys in it. A nut disrupted Mass two years ago by invading the Sanctuary and his feet never touched the floor on the way out. An excellent BUM’S RUSH if I do say so myself.

There are several news stories and threads on the attack here:

Just check the news sections on the right side of the home page or scroll down.

I have a friend the local Law Enforcement looking into it for me as well. They have a task force that handles these sorts of people. Will holler if I get more info.
