Anti-Homosexual Marriage Protesters Take Their Message to Hollywood Blvd. in LA
American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property ^ | 10/2/2008 | John Ritchie

Posted on 10/02/2008 10:33:21 AM PDT by Pyro7480

Lunch hour on Figueroa Street, downtown Los Angeles: Stepping onto the sidewalk, he said: "Let me see that sign." The sign held by TFP volunteer Mr. Thomas Schneider read "God's marriage = 1 man, 1 woman = children." ...Just then another businessman turned to Mr. Schneider and chimed in: "You're 120% percent correct!.."

...[A] pro-homosexual woman attempted to stop our campaign. "You should really stop what you're doing and leave. If violence breaks out," she told me, "you will be responsible for it. You are inciting people to acts of hate and violence." Her face muscles and hands quivered and trembled as she spoke.... "To suggest that we would be responsible for violence is not just. I invite you to read our flier and see for yourself." But she would not listen and only continued complaining in a loud voice like a broken record....

Changing her "leave now" approach, she started: "You are liars. You are not from California and your banner says 'Californians support traditional marriage.'" Now she was barking up the wrong tree. "Excuse me, 61% of Californians support traditional marriage, one man, one woman," I replied.... At that exact instant, two ladies approached me with thumbs up, saying: "We support what you are doing. We believe in traditional marriage! Thank you!"

"You see," I said, "these ladies are Californian." "No. They are not Californian. They are immigrants." This comment did not go over too well with the two ladies whose jaws dropped open in disbelief. "You've got to be kidding," they responded. "We are legal immigrants and you want to treat us like second class citizens because we support traditional marriage? That's ridiculous." I played a bit the role of moderator now because the debate was escalating rapidly....

A leftist so deranged by people standing up for traditional marriage that she became anti-immigrant? I love it!

so they are inciting violence

is that like a woman who does not do the cleaning one day and the husband is mad so he beats her and then says well you incited it as you should have cleaned

name calling and violence is just a trademark for their perverted sickness and no matter how many times they try to silence the majority they will never succeed.

That they even have to hold such a protest in support of marriage is absolutely mind boggling. What has happened to our country!

So here’s the liberal nutjob logic on display:

If you are against homosexuality and march and display banners about your position, you are hateful and inciting violence

If you are for homosexuality and march naked or virtually naked, in front of children, simulate sex acts on floats, toss out condoms to the crowd, and have obscene banners with graphics on them - again in front of children - you are loving and kind and sugar and spice and not inciting violence.

Now, expand this line of thinking and put any polarizing issue in, in place of homosexuality. The conservative will always be hateful and inciting violence, the lib will always not be. Stupid-ass moron hypocrites.

It is the left's perception, that if they don't like what you are saying, they can resort to violence and be immune from the laws against such things.

They can protest by saying all manner of vile thins, and of course that is reasoned.  Nobody should object, because there's a First Amendment for them.



Folks, can we agree to get this FReepathon over with as soon as possible?  Click below to help out.

More people should stand against perversion like these folks. Freedom was never intended to be a trophy for depravity. we're not losing the battle...we aren't showing up for it. Pathetic!

I have had the honor of becoming acquainted with several of the TFP members. They are indeed a group of courageous, intelligent, honorable, strong, Godly young men.

God bless them for going into the belly of the beast and standing up for what is right and decent.

Excellent! Can I use that for a tagline in the future? (I'll cite the source, of course.)

I just dropped some coin in these guys’ donation box. They are doing such great work. It’s the least I can do.

Must be from out of town.

If they really want to mix it up,... they should have the protest on Santa Monica Blvd.

Now THAT would be fun to see. I’d buy tickets. :)

Believe it or not, that corner of Hollywood and Highland is 6 blocks away from my place. If you move 500 feet backwards from that angle, you are sure to be greeted (mobbed would be the better word)by Scientologists and offer you a “stress test”. Especially on the weekends (shudder).

Oh, good grief. Mobbed with sincere insistence, my guess is. They mean well, but they have a creepy edge. I can't get past the e-meter. I have yet to read what exactly it measures or how it measures it. You know, because I 'just don't get it'.

I was thinking the same thing! And it's lost on them, even when we try to explain.
