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 Portlands 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 Hills leadership. What we have to say to the Q Center is this: [snip] YOU, you dont 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 Hills 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.

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 communications most risible phrases.
However, a reporter at competing KOIN also received a copy of the e-mail. KOINs 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 emails author(s) submitted a somewhat different version to different outlets.
Neither media outlet reported the messages 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 Hills 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 Savages 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 dont 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 Hills pastors, and warm the hearts of our friends and comrades (known or unknown). It may not get better, but we can certainly get even.
Yep. Well said.

there’s turning the other cheek and then there is doing so while smiling and saying you deserved it.
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.
A great rhetorical question, “What if angry Christians threw hammers through the windows of the houses where queers live? What would the government do?”
Good point. Doesn’t bug me that Muslims disapprove of my pork eating.
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
I would defend the Church against such violence. By any means necessary.
Throwing a hammer through a church window with people inside is assault with a deadly weapon. Double tap the degenerate.
This is the very definition of terrorism. If we actually had a real A.G., we might expect some action on this case. However, since we have Holder, we can expect nothing.
[[These psychotics are claiming that hate is directed at them, yet who is promoting violence?]]
That’s the tactic of the left- Be tbhe aggressors, while at the same time pretend to be the victims- hopefully someoen with a loud enough voice i nthe GOP will expose these racist hatemonguerers- but so far- noone i nthe GOP has been willing to call these criminals out yet-
[[It went from just wanting acceptance to all out war on anyone who disagrees with the faggots. Evil spreads when good men do nothing.]]
you’re exactly right- which is basically what i said in last post- the GOP has been silent on the issue of homosexuals being violent and attackign religion- and the evil of homosexualityy has been allowed to spread and spread uncontested as a result-
They are out committing crimes and claiming to victims at the same time?
I bet the will quietly pass by any muslim mosques during their crime spree. Trashing a mosque would be some kind of hate crime to them, and this group does not believe in hate, only tolerance.
“...hammers through their windows..”
Well, except for the mess on the inside of the building, it would provide a handy spot to work from...
Time to start carrying ‘tools’ to church you say?
I take it that since the “angry queers” are against hypocrisy, their next visit will be to the neighborhood mosque?
