Video Shows Prop 8 Protesters Terrorizing Cross-Carrying Elderly Woman and Reporter
LifeSiteNews ^ | November 10, 2008 | Kathleen Gilbert

Posted on 11/10/2008 5:07:48 PM PST by MountainLoop

Video footage from KPSP CBS 2 Palm Spring News shows Proposition 8 protesters surrounding an elderly woman and the reporter trying to interview her, shouting and blocking the camera's view of the woman, ultimately forcing the two to flee from the encircling crowd.

Phyllis Burgess, a supporter of true marriage, had been assaulted earlier as she displayed a large cross in front of the protesters. Video footage shows the anti-marriage crowd pushing Burgess, slapping the cross out of her hand and stomping on it as they surround her.

When reporter Kimberly Chang attempted to interview Burgess shortly thereafter, she grew visibly upset as dozens of protesters encircled the pair and shouted them down while blocking the camera with their signs, rendering the interview impossible.

People have been treating Christ and His followers that way for 2,000 years.

They're just showing what they're really about.

As they demanded "tolerance" for their own views.

I saw this live on KPSP...they took their sweet time in breaking up the fracas, and then only half-heartedly.

Palm Springs is far and away "gayer" than San Francisco.....oh, and their public information officer is named Sgt. Mitch Spike.......you can't make this stuff up.

” There are those who believe that a new modernity demands a new morality. What they fail to consider is the harsh reality that there is no such thing as a new morality. The is only one morality: all else is immorality. There is only true christian ethics over against that which stands the whole of paganism”... President Theodore Roosevelt

Did you hear the last words of the reporter in the studio. “Hate on both sides.” Guess I cannot believe my lying ears.

Tolerance is a two way street.

If they’re after sympathy, it isn’t working. Are the networks reporting any of these attacks?

The supporters against Prop 8 remind me of the religion of peace and the liberals. You can believe and do anything you want as long as they do too. Before the elections, there were thousands of reports of signs being stolen or destroyed. In my area, a supporter of Prop 8 had his vehicle decorated with Yes on Prop 8, McCain/Palin and other signs. One night, the peaceful fags destroys the guy's pickup. Slashed the tires, broke the windows, sugar in the gas tank. The only difference between the terrorists and the people against Prop 8, is the terrorists would blow you up. Liberals are going to try to shut down conservative talk radio and with all three branches controlled by radical libs, it will probably happen. Thank you Mr. Obama.

I heard that - “a lot of hate on both sides”

ABSURD

It’s clear where the hate is as they stamp on the cross.

What a bunch of immature creeps. Good grief, what a way to treat somebody, especially an elderly woman of faith.

Shameful . . . and then the anchor makes such a pandering PC statement. Heaven help us.

When expanded hate crime bills pass, do not expect any help from the MSM. They can define hate crime as reading the bible. And I am not exaggerating.

Reminds me of a story I heard when I was a kid...something about a rabbit and a Brier patch?

I could continue about suitable alternatives but I am in quite a bit of pain, something wrong with shoulder, going to find pain meds.

Its hateful to stand up for your belief. If conservatives did this it would be on every network, it would be on the talk shows, and there would be a movie of the week.

These gay hooligans remind me of the brown shirts in the early years of Hitler's Nazi Party. The main difference is that the Brown shirts dressed better and bathed more frequently.

Obomao

and goons are trying to make Christians automatically the lawbreakers for merely preaching Scripture . . .

Scripture warned us of the end times when

good would be called evil and evil called good . . .

and lawlessness would abound.

If you don’t use HTML, the links work just fine. Adding HTML screws them up.

BTW, you really ought to warn people about links like that.

Something simple like *Mega-barf alert* or *Hurl Alert* or *Watch out that your eyes don’t bleed*.

There’s a video that will never see the light of day in the MSM.

The line by the male newscaster at the end says it all, “There was a lot of anger and a lot of hate on BOTH sides...”. The grandmother in yellow was hateful how? They can’t be fair even when confronted with that video? Gays will rue the day they began attacking elderly grandmothers.
