PHOENIX, Arizona, October 9 -- Volunteers with the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) were assaulted a tenth time on October 3rd while peacefully distributing literature in support of traditional marriage at Arizona State University.
TFP has organized a 33-day tour of cities and colleges across California and Arizona to educate the public on the importance of preserving traditional marriage.
The last assault occurred at Arizona State University when a pro-homosexual man leaned out of his car window and deliberately sprayed TFP members on the sidewalk with pesticide, saying: Have a drink!"
Although most of my TFP colleagues managed to jump clear of the chemical substance, TFP member Thomas Schneider, who was holding a sign, was sprayed on the hands which soon became irritated, stated Cesar Franco, TFP Student Action assistant director. The chemical liquid sprayed by the homosexual advocate made his hands sting and feel painful. They call that tolerance. If my colleague had remained where he was standing at the time of the assault, I have no doubt that his face would have been hit by the spray and perhaps more seriously injured, said Mr. Franco.
We called the police immediately. They arrived and documented the incident which was caught on camera, evidence the police were glad to have. The case number is 08-166741 and police officials consider the act an aggravated assault, affirmed Mr. Franco. Thank God, TFP Student Action members are not intimidated. With every assault, our resolve to defend traditional marriage is only strengthened. With every insult, our desire to promote the truth of God marriage grows ever stronger, he said.
TFP, a Catholic organization, is distributing flyers titled "Ten Reasons Why Homosexual 'Marriage' Is Harmful and Must Be Opposed." It calls on Californians and Arizonans to firmly and peacefully resist the advance of the homosexual movement.
In June, the California Supreme Court imposed same-sex marriage on the state. The American TFP believes the decision will undermine the family unit, harm the nation's moral foundation and jeopardize the innocence of children.

Too bad no one sprayed the car back with some 7.62.

Because God is on their side. How “compassionate and tolerant” of the left to commit such actions..
In that circumstance in Arizona it would have been justifiable.
Don't let them do that to you, CA and AZ.
“Love, love, love; just feel the love; inclusion, tolerance, let the love flow...kill the religious bigots...love, love, love; just feel the love; tolerance, peace, freedom!”
That is a terrorist act. The FBI and DHS should be on that one.
The “Gaystapo” in action. Nazi thugs.
The church I attend in Arizona has had a rock thrown through the front stained glass, our Proposition 102 banner (state constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman) defaced, and then the replacement banner stolen.
So much for tolerance...

Yet if it was the other way around you know we would be forced to hear about the harrasment from the lib media 24/7. It is going to get worse after the election regardless - this country is extremely divided - and make no mistake our enemies are very aware of this. I suggest everybody do whatever you can now to prepare for the worst that may come our way. Pray, buy guns and ammo and stock up on food. Its cheap insurance and you’ll be able to sleep at night.
Why? Because they get away with it. They think they’re untouchable.
I strongly agree that such acts are extremely dangerous in Arizona.
This probably happened at ASU because concealed carry is a lot trickier when it is hot out. ASU still officially opposes guns on campus, even though a lot of students are armed to the teeth (in cool weather).
For future reference, I would carry a small video camera and pepper spray, solely because it can be deployed faster. If it is near where cars can drive by, a large ball bearing works like a charm. Another useful and legal device is a padlock hung to the belt with a thick, braided cord and a quick release.
A gun is best, but on campus it will probably be in a book bag. Takes too long to brandish.
It IS assault... and remember what the courts said, the police are there to protect the society & not the individual; therefore, I think it is time more people exercised their 2nd Amendment rights.

And I’ve always heard that...
“Third times a charm.”
I expected some info about the OTHER nine times...
now if that was a homo so called church then the national headlines would have had this
keep up the fight , we are here in Florida
my wife said earlier about CT marriage and the way judges have forced homo sickness sham marriage on the people
she said that this country is becoming more segregated like in 1850’s but this time it is left and right.
if the left want their liberal utopia then let them have I say, they can have MA,CT,RI,ME,VT and Quebec.
all liberals living south have to move to those states and leave us along who want a great moral strong country.
