GAY FASCISTS STORM CHURCH (enjoy with your cup of joe)
Catholic League ^ | 111108 | Catholic League

Posted on 11/11/2008 8:47:53 AM PST by Fred

On Sunday, November 9, a band of about 30 gays stormed a church in Lansing, Michigan. Some were well dressed and were stationed inside Mount Hope Church; others were outside dressed in pink and black. The group of self-described homosexual anarchists, Bash Back!, claims the evangelical church is guilty of “transphobia and homophobia.”

The protesters outside the church were beating on buckets, shouting “Jesus was a homo” on a megaphone and carrying an upside-down pink cross. Fire alarms went off inside the church, protesters stormed the pulpit and a huge rainbow-colored flag was unfurled with the inscription, “IT’S OKAY TO BE GAY! BASH BACK!” The church was vandalized, obscenities were shouted and worshippers were confronted. There were no arrests.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue addressed this issue today:

“The real story here is the refusal of the mainstream media to cover what is surely one of the most disturbing events of 2008. If an organized group of gay bashers stormed a gay church, there is not a single sentient person in the United States who wouldn’t know about it.

“This is urban fascism come to America’s heartland. It must be quickly stopped before it gets out of control. We are contacting Mike Cox, the Attorney General of Michigan, calling for an investigation.”

We don’t march and threaten Catholics, Mormons and other Christians like this small church.

There were no arrests? Are you kidding me?

WTH is going on in Michigan?

This is crazy psychotic behavior and they vandalized a church! These nuts should have been arrested and charged with many counts of criminal acts.

I am so discouraged with the world right now! Is there any common sense left? Is there anyone who will stand up for what is right anymore? Are we to be run over by these loons and nothing will be done about it?

I’ll bet if a bunch of Chrisians did this to a gay neighborbood or to an abortion clinic our arses would be locked up and the key thrown away!

If it had been a black church, front page news all over the world today. Since probably mostly a white church, no harm no foul who cares.

HA! Dream on!

When Obama's "Civilian Police that is just as strong, powerful, and well funded as the Military" comes to power, it will be the Federal Goons who will be the ones arresting Christians! These people are demonic.

shouting “Jesus was a homo” on a megaphone and carrying an upside-down pink cross.

So is Obama and his band of thugs.

Where latex gloves first!
The real problem is these radical groups have no fear.They think that the government has their back. I say, put the fear of God in them and when they do something like this, protect yourselves and property. I know, they have cameras ready to show the media how evil their attackers are...But they will think twice before coming back for more face breaking.Sometimes fear is a good thing.

One of the things that worries me about an Obama win and presidency is not just what he will do but what his followers will do. With him having won they must feel like they are emboldened and now in a position to get away with anything. A sense of power and arrogancy that they did not have before.

We haven't seen anything yet - Barack Hussein Øbama has not even been sworn in yet, but believe me his cult faithful are going to be venting their anger at the RIGHT just as quickly as they can organize in the streets.

Arm yourselves and have plenty of ammo - this is not going to be pretty. Barack Hussein Øbama will probably have to declare martial law and confiscate all firearms like what was done in NO after Katrina.

I scanned the posts: it seems a Freeper was talking of an event like this 2 days ago and this sounds similar but it wasn’t in the news yet. I think it is in the vandalism at an Arizona Church the other day.

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...

Somebody, somewhere is asking to get hurt over this. There will be a time when this group will pick the wrong church and they will live to regret it, that is, if they live at all. Knowhuthimean, Vern? You can only provoke someone to a certain point and then there will be a violent reaction. I've even seen day old baby chicks put up a fight when provoked and/or cornered. I personally think if they keep it to their private bedrooms, I have no problem, at least in a legal sense, spiritually is another matter, but what people are going to do, they will do. I'm even open to a limited civil union where at least you know who is with whom and for purposes like power of attorney and so forth.

However, when they act like this, they blow all their credibility and only hurt the homosexuals who only want to be left alone in peace. If they want to live in peace and work like we all do, I can accept them, but I just see this as part of the larger picture of liberal fascism.

A friend of mine goes to this church and mentioned the attack. I helped out there at an AiG creation conference back in the 90's. It's sad that people who preach love for everyone and the need for all people to repent and be reconciled with their creator are satanically attacked with lies that are diametrically opposite the truth.

Christians should love homosexuals; and it is precisely for that reason that we ought to call their sin, sin, and urge them to repent and seek restoration through Christ. What's next - attacked Christians for being 'anti-burglar' for teaching against theft, and claims that Christians 'hate' burglars?

Bingo. I find it interesting that they attacked a Catholic church where 53 to 57% of Catholics voted for BHO but why would they not attack a black church who put the prop 8 in California over the top?

Two reasons come to mind.

1) If they attacked a black church it would not go over well in the media. They would receive a lot of back lash and negative press which would expose the truth of what they really are.
2) The congregation would have beat the gayness right out of them

I refuse to participate in the 0bama economy. Whenever possible, I will barter or work on an all cash basis.

Me too. I am taking a basic job at an auto parts store, I was between jobs until last week when I was hired. I plan on cutting back, well I have already, I have to watch what I spend anyways, and only buy things I need. I just want to make enough to pay the least taxes while taking care of Mom and my cats. I'll keep my 14/15 year old jalopy running, if I have to buy a new car, (har har), I'm considering foreign. Big ticket items like TV's, I'll only buy the cheapest ones and only in dire need. I have a 1994 refrigerator but my backup is a 1938 Frigidare, how's that for "shrugging?" My TV is 1982 Zenith bought new in early 1983. Well working in auto parts, I had the great tour Saturday and told I was hired, it was very, very busy, in this Obamanation, people will need parts to keep the cars running. Also, the big three are in trouble, it would mean more after market third party parts as well. Already, I have some people coming to me for parts, I feel like I live in Cuba II.
