‘Angry Queers’: Christians are ‘scum,’ deserve ‘hammers through their windows’

Warning: This story includes vulgar language as quoted in an e-mail from an extremist homosexual rights group.

PORTLAND, OREGON, April 27, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The group that allegedly smashed up a Portland church hopes its “small act of vengeance will strike fear into the hearts of” Christian leaders who teach traditional sexual morality, according to an e-mail message the group released to the public.

A group calling itself “Angry Queers” has claimed responsibility for throwing baseball-sized rocks through nine church windows in Portland’s Mars Hill Church, including two 100-year-old stained glass panes.

Two versions of the e-mail have been sent to the media, one longer and slightly more incendiary than the other, but both apparently originating from the same group. In the longer version, the LGBT activists state they destroyed church property in the names of several local transgender people who have died, and “all other trans women” whose deaths they blame on “this cissexist, femmephobic, racist, and transmisogynistic society.”

“Churches are a major contributor to the culture that deems trans women of color to be disposable, as not worth keeping alive,” the statement read.

The “brand of Christianity” taught by Mark Driscoll, pastor of the largest Mars Hill Church in Seattle, “crusades against the ‘feminization’ of Jesus,” the e-mail stated. “We angry queers are not fans of Jesus, but we have a problem with anyone who has a problem with femmes.”

The e-mail, which is peppered with foul language, berates the Q Center, a local LGBT activist organization, for engaging in a dialogue with the Mars Hill’s leadership. “What we have to say to the Q Center is this: [snip] YOU, you don’t represent us. You are disgusting traitors who prioritize social peace and the bourgeois aspirations of rich white cis gay people over the more pressing survival needs of more marginalized queers.”

[snip] dialog with people who want us dead,” the e-mail read. “The only dialog we need with scum like Mars Hill is hammers through their windows.”

“We hope this small act of vengeance will strike some fear into the hearts of all of Mars Hill’s pastors, and warm the hearts of our friends and comrades (known or unknown). It may not get better, but we can certainly get even,” it concludes.

Click “like” if you want to defend true marriage.

The local Fox affiliate, KPTV, sent a local homosexual media outlet a copy of the e-mail they received, which is missing several of the communication’s most risible phrases.

However, a reporter at competing KOIN also received a copy of the e-mail. KOIN’s coverage quotes words found only in the longer e-mail.

The longer version names several dead transgender people by first and last name, then references them by first name later. The shorter version only includes the reference to their first names, which may authenticate the longer and more inflammatory version sent to KOIN.

The homosexual media outlet that obtained the KPTV version of the e-mail stated officials at the Fox station said the shorter version is the one they received. The blogger believes “the email’s author(s) submitted a somewhat different version to different outlets.”

Neither media outlet reported the message’s invocations of violence against traditional Christians, which appeared in both versions.

The long form of the e-mail has also appeared on several left-wing websites in the area.

Even before the text of the e-mail had become public, Chuck Currie, a minister in the United Church of Christ (UCC), wrote, “I call on the Portland Police to treat this as a hate crime against all people of faith, regardless of religious tradition or belief.”

However, a commenter calling himself “Angry Queer” on a local homosexual website incited further vandalism, writing: “I hope some sexy, angry queers (like myself) smashed this [snip] up and will continue to until Mars Hill cannot exist peacefully in Portland. There is no peace for queers — we are murdered, bashed and ridiculed every [snip] day. To have some windows of a huge INSTITUTION THAT PERPETUATES AND BREEDS THE HELL WE LIVE IN EVERY DAY smashed is a small victory and a boost in morale.”

Below the video is the full text of the e-mail as it appears on several left-wing activist websites. The portions that differ from the KPTV version are in italics.

Early in the morning of April 24th a group of angry queers smashed out the windows of Mars Hill Church in Southeast Portland. Mars Hill is notoriously anti-gay and anti-woman. Mark Driscoll, Mars Hill’s head pastor, has said that women need to be subservient to their husbands and that gay people are a cancer. His personal brand of Christianity crusades against the “feminization” of Jesus - we angry queers are not fans of Jesus, but we have a problem with anyone who has a problem with femmes.

This action was taken in memory of Mark Aguhar, a fierce queer/trans femme of color and artist from Chicago who killed herself a little over a month ago. We also hold in our hearts Paige Clay, a trans woman of color who was found murdered in Chicago on April 16th; Duanna Johnson, a black trans woman who was in all likelihood murdered by the police in 2008; Agnes Torres Sulca, Deoni Jones, and all other trans women who have been murdered by this cissexist, femmephobic, racist, and transmisogynistic society.

Churches are a major contributor to the culture that deems trans women of color to be disposable, as not worth keeping alive. Children who are forced to attend Mars Hill are indoctrinated in hateful dogma that teaches them their natural desires are an abomination that will damn them to hell. Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” campaign does nothing in the here and now for queer kids trapped in abusive home or religious settings. And it never got better for Mark, Duanna, Paige, Agnes, Deoni, or the countless other trans women (especially brown trans women) who are regularly murdered.

When Mars Hill moved to town, so-called “representatives” of the queer “community” from the Q Center met with officials from the church in order to have dialog. What we have to say to the Q Center is this: [snip] YOU, you don’t represent us. You are disgusting traitors who prioritize social peace and the bourgeois aspirations of rich white cis gay people over the more pressing survival needs of more marginalized queers. [snip] dialog with people who want us dead, the only dialog we need with scum like Mars Hill is hammers through their windows.

We smashed Mars Hill because they make our lives miserable. We hope this small act of vengeance will strike some fear into the hearts of all of Mars Hill’s pastors, and warm the hearts of our friends and comrades (known or unknown). It may not get better, but we can certainly get even.

One has to wonder... What does it matter to them what some group of Christians (or anybody else, for that matter) thinks of them?

If some group disapproved of my lifestyle for some reason, I just can’t imagine why I would really care.

If this screed isn’t proof of a hate crime, then nothing is!

If it isn’t a hate crime in the eyes of the government, then its proof that its open season on Christians in America.

I don't think that most of the adult homosexuals ARE mentally ill. I think they CHOOSE to be that way because they THINK that's how they are built.
They KNOW it's abnormal but it's "right" for them, so it's RIGHT. They DON'T believe the mainstream information that homosexuality is wrong...BECAUSE it's all they know, all they have experienced and feel it right for them.

I think that they are an abysmally sad group of human beings.

Same here. But, we aren’t self-loathing homosexuals who need the world to hate them more than they hate themselves. Its the only thing that gives them any sense of self-worth.

On a similar note, I just heard an ABC news blurb that said the Occupiers have been caught mailing envelopes containing white powder to bank CEOs. The left is really out of control these days. They need to learn to control their rage. Of course if they did that they would sort of cease to exist.

I think that's part of it, but why do they think they are built that way? That's where I think we need to concentrate and attack (if I may). Science is no friend to the born that way theory. In fact, science is quite hostile to the born that way theory.

Those who push the born that way theory are completely ignorant of what science says.

They choose the hell they live with every day. So did the trans/queers who either off’ed themselves or got murdered or died of AIDS.

But in this day of no personal responsibility, they have to find someone, some place or some institution to blame for their misery.

BTW, it’s saying a lot that a UCC pastor is calling for them to be dealt with criminally by the police.

Just imagine if this was reversed...IE some group were threatening against gays what these queers have threatened against Christians.

National media coverage, congressional hearings, laws slapped on the books...We truly live in a world turned upside down.

What about this idea: Queers are “scum” and deserve “hammers through their teeth.”

I definitely disagree. Queers are people, too, they're just confused about their sexuality.

Shouldn’t assume all Christians are passive. Most of us are only marginally successful and none perfect at emulating the Master. Sinners all. And if it doesn’t involve minors, animals, or members of my family I care not a whit what and with willing whom this fairy queen pairs. I have an opinion of the conduct but it’s none of my personal business. Threaten me and mine? Safety off.

Mark Driscoll is a good man. I have read his devotions for years. These homos are treating him the same way Lot was treated in Sodom--with utter contempt.

I dare these sodomites to bring hammers to my church. Many of us carry concealed, and will NOT hesitate to put them on the ground to protect the flock.

It takes profound moral courage to risk one’s body and freedom in defense of a cause (whether or not someone outside of that decision agrees with the specific tactics involved.) It takes none criticize them.

Pastor Mark of Mars Hill church is doing the Lord’s work on the battlefield of American unchurched. He just wrote a book on marriage and made the rounds on the MSM. View,Piers Morgan etc. Did a fabulous job with his lovely wife Grace representing a Christian worldview that honors the relationship of a man and women in a God centered marriage. No wonder the devil is riled up. I would encourage all Freepers to look on YouTube to see what this pastor is doing in ungodly Seattle. “Mark Driscoll Mars Hill Church” He has some great sermons that speak directly to the unchurched
