Homosexualists threaten parish for standing up for true marriage
What Does The Prayer Really Say? ^ | 16 May 2012 | Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

Posted on 05/16/2012 3:38:24 PM PDT by markomalley

A press release from The Catholic Action League:

THREATS AGAINST CATHOLIC CHURCH IN ACUSHNET

A Catholic parish in the Diocese of Fall River [Massachusetts] has become the object of threats of violence, and vandalism, because of a sign posted on church property supporting the traditional definition of marriage. Yesterday, Saint Francis Xavier Parish in the town of Acushnet displayed a message on the church’s billboard reading “Two men are friends, not spouses.”

In an interview this morning with Boston’s FOX 25 News, Steve Guillotte, Director of Pastoral Services for Saint Francis Xavier, said the church has received a number of menacing, obscenity laced phone calls, including one threatening to burn the church down. A sign describing the church’s message as “hate” was nailed to the church’s fence, while additional hostile signs were laid against the fence, and rainbow balloons were attached to it. All references to same gender marriage were removed from the parish’s billboard this morning.

Intimidating or interfering with someone in the exercise of their constitutional rights — such as freedom of speech or the free exercise of religion — is a crime in Massachusetts (Chapter 265, Section 37 of the General Laws). Since 1990, it has been a hate crime (Chapter 434 of the Acts of 1990).

[Note well...] The Catholic Action League characterized the episode as “compelling evidence clearly demonstrating which side in the conflict over same sex marriage engages in hate tactics.[Get that?]

Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle stated: “At a time when homosexual pride parades monopolize public thoroughfares with police protection, it is now unsafe to post a message upholding traditional morality on private property. This event tells us all we need to know about the totalitarian instincts of organized homosexualism in America. What began as a so-called ‘gay rights’ movement, has become a neo-fascist enterprise dedicated to suppressing, harassing, censoring, silencing and punishing anyone supportive of biblical morality. Attorney General Martha Coakley and Bristol County District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter should investigate the threats against Saint Francis Xavier Parish for possible prosecution as hate crimes.”

What do you want to bet that, if the Attorney General does investigate, no one will be held accountable for a “hate crime”.  Instead, the parish will be accused of being the hateful actor in this despicable round of threats and intimidation.

Not long ago I posted something from Life News about a case of church vandalism in Portland claimed by a group called “Angry Queers”.

We are going to be seeing a great deal more of this.

Have you also the impression that what is going in the press about the same-sex and what is rising up right now across every sphere of life, is more than just the usual media feeding frenzy after someone chums the waters?

It is almost as if a signal has been given and a plan is being implemented by an organized community, as it were.

Just as there seems to have been a sharp uptick of racial violence against Caucasians following on the Trayvon Martain case, and following Pres. Obama’s comments about the Trayvon Martin case, so too, following the “First Gay President’s” endorsement of same-sex “marriage”, there will probably be an uptick of vandalism and threats from homosexuals against parishes and churches – anyone, in fact, who openly stands up to defend authentic marriage.

People may have to start thinking about security and security systems for their parish property.  It is worth a discussion.

Pastors! Parish Priests!  Fathers!  

Clear for action!

Good for them. I was talking about this with my son as we watched it on the local news. He said people need to respect THEIR beliefs too.

I did something right with that kid.

Suppose they said, “Two men can be anal sex partners, but not co-husbands.” What sort of speech would that be?

The reverse INQUISITION is on. They went and made those laws that people did not want. They INSTITUTED thus an evil perverted church of lifestyle and sinful thoughts. Thus, now the inquisitions will start.

They start pimping sexuality, and, next, will be food. It started with cigarettes and lemonade stands.

I’ve wondered the best way to provide protection for a particular Church.

Seems that dusk to dawn patrols, during volatile periods such as this, would be appropriate.

Then, how do you prepare?
Video?
Mace?
Weapon?
Cell Phone?

If vandals intent on malice arrive, how do react?
Wait 2 hours for cops to arrive?
Confront them?
Video? (night video may be unhelpful, if they’re on foot)

What is chilling is that with the precedent over Fast and Furious, and, that is, the letting of Obama and Holder happy go lucky genocide of Mexicans, with the Mexico government and other governments applauding, means they are subreptitiously handing him the keys.

Obama is a retard, but he is possessed by such easy evil and satan that the rest of the world has been enjoying, that they are not even seeing it coming their way.

Well, it’s a matter of exposing the inquisition and the persecution, and of forcing of their declaration of a costly persecution and war that would be heavy for them in costs, against us.

I would retort a protest in loin cloth in DC, denouncing the sins, the inquisitions, the rapes they want, and daring them with signs to come and rape the protestor(s) there.

Since, of course, this could be dangerous and that ultimately this bankruptcy of theirs means their own death, it would behoove on the rest to stay armed with Bible and swords, and ready to sort things out, bad from good, as we can.

What is sure is that communism is a PC ideology of racism not unlike NAzism, except it is a synthesis surrender of fighting for one’s race, despite being racist.

This is key to remember. It is cowardice even in the face of human nature empowered or not.

So, ultimately, it is going to be a strange implosion mixed with other tribes which will lay in wait and ambush, play the weak card, and then dominate their tribe over others, just as the like of Mugabe did in Zimbabwe or the horrors of the surrenderist PC wars of Tutsies experiments in Rwanda.

Fortunately, with guns, the skirmish might be limited. But with machetes only, it would be mayhem of PC murder and butchery of the strong over the young and old.

As Christ did to the fig tree, if it is not producing, it might as well whither right now and things sorted that way. However, it is not a war of vengence like the liberals’

The key point is to save oneself instead of worrying for vengence, with the helping of those neighbors needing help as much as we can because that help promotes organization.

Liberals are known for their violence and threats against those who disagree with them. Therefore common sense dictates that if you are in a liberal enclave, like MA, and you are going to stand up for your not-liberal beliefs, you need to prepare ahead of time.

An agreement can be reached with your phone company for them to record the phone numbers of those who call, even if they block their caller ID, not to be turned over to you, but if you receive threats, to provide to the police.

Second, inexpensive security cameras can be used to record acts of vandalism against your property. And third, request that ushers, in the case of a church, also act as security personnel to protect the congregation from those who may intend to disrupt services with violence or other outrage.

I would rather see my Church burned to the ground than have a pervert marriage in it.

Notice how horrible things have gotten?

I can recall when society was admonished to show “tolerance”.

This is where they ply their craft. Tolerance sounds OK, right? Except, when “they” used the word, it meant something completely different. Apparently, _their_ re-definition of tolerance means something along the lines of “if you disagree with us, we’ll burn your church down.”

Websters defines tolerance in the context of allowing for differing beliefs without accepting those beliefs. It’s clear that there is no corresponding tolerance here, they are clearly against anyone holding a different opinion, however thoughtfully and earnestly held.

Of course! When someone has no logical or, rational, e.g. fact based argument, then they simply resort to namecalling. That’s how one can tell these folks are _completely_ bag-o-squirrels nut jobs.

It would be the truth.

I think that most people, at least in the United States, make sincere efforts to treat others they way they would like to be treated. Our laissez-faire assumptions don’t prepare us well to deal with people - homosexualist, Islamist, Marxist - who are driven to use force to make everyone conform to their particular vision.
