That's the ticket. Sounds like they don't have hate speech laws there. Or hate crimes. I guess communism didn't totally ruin them.

We could use a bit o'that kinda Scorched Earth Policy over here. If they wanna go form their own homo-friendly "church", let'em. If they want to destroy institutions like the Boy Scouts or the Church, stomp'em. Up against the wall, you perverts.

Couldn't they just have smudged it with a little sage or something? Or maybe sprayed it with some Clorox?

It's a good thing these religious fanatics didn't live near the White House during the Clinton administration. Could have been a repeat of August 24, 1814.

God bless the Russian Orthodox Church!!!!

At least some church somewhere is cognizant of the vileness of politically correct religion.

Does Clorox remove stubborn homosexual stains? This could be a new TV ad...

I'm glad that the church took a stand FOR God, and for good! It's a shame so many pastors in the States are in bed with Satan, promoting and endorsing sin "if it feels good.".

Sure you are, if you own it.
Seems like overkill though, why not just fumigate, and repaint
as President Bush had to done to the Whitehouse
after the sink master left.
