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.
Hate crimes and several various felonies.
Probably getting ready to charge the old lady with a “hate crime”
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
Mmm.. seems there was a Bible story I read somewhere about a crowd of gays getting into a bit of a tizzy. Next day their fair cities were a smoldering mess... is History repeating itself shortly?
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 idiot newscaster’s parting words, “... a lot of hate on both sides.”
This is the second report I’ve seen in the past hour on the people and churches being attacked.
Why aren’t they locking these homos up in jail?
I heard that - “a lot of hate on both sides”
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.

Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
Ooh Ooh Ooh..I know...I know...
Who could it be? Could it Beeeeeee...SODOM?
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.
They always wrong;y say that we live in a “democracy” well they are experiencing it first hand and now they’re angry about it?
The “Fairness Doctrine” in action.
And I'm not stopping. Reading the Bible that is.
We’ll see who gets the last laugh fags.
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.
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.
Such *bravery* fairies have in harassing an old lady!
I’m lousy at hot links, so check what should be the next post.....
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*.
Christians should be where these groups silently challanging these churches and it’s parishoners. If you live in the vicinity or know anyone who does get your butts down there and do something. Let’s get a spine here...this ridiculous. I live across the country, can’t get there from . Let’s go here!!!!!!!!do we have to hand everything over to these people. Come !!!!We’re handing over our country to a handfull of people.
Seriously....lets back away from the computers and get moving here. There is work that needs to be done. We’re handing over this country to these liberal extrmists. If you can do something to help besides sit at the computer do something. There’s work that needs to be done!!!!!Let’s stop the whining and compaining and do something. At least show your presence if you can in quiet protest. Get thousands and thousands down there!!
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.
Seriously....lets back away from the computers and get moving here.”
Way too late now.
[[Such *bravery* fairies have in harassing an old lady!
Lol- that’s all they can handle- they might break a nail or sumpin pickin on someone who coudl fight back and pound their self-righteous smirking faces into hte mud where it belongs- these aren’t just gay people- they are militant gay people- lol- I said ‘militant’- like they could even face REAL militants- oh I crack myself up
Our country is dying. Pretty obvious isn’t it?
