"When asked, the three men would not state which group they were affiliated with," Roros said in an e-mail interview. "They arrived with two tall, professionally made banners with scripture and anti-gay sentiments on them and discouraged people from attending the church," he said. "The third man stood in the park across the street from the church quoting scripture and preaching hate loudly while denouncing our church openly."
The protesters could not be located for comment.

If that isnít THE quintessential expression of religious freedom, well I donít know what is. Christians protesting Christians practicing Christianity, in front of a church.
Wait, now did they demonize the gays at the Church AND at the White House on the same day?
We need 10 Feet signs that say things like:
-We worship a God not a book
-Our God has ENOUGH Love.
-We Love hate mongers.
Dress up like them, hold signs next to them, and quote scripture saying, Stone your insolent children! If youíre remarried, youíre committing adultery and are equal to a murderer!
Then when services start weíll all go inside. Make sure the press is there, and get a copy for the internet...Now we just need an editor... hmm

Answering to these people by their own tactics would solve the issue. We would need to come up with an action that answers in love. Just doing what their doing doesn't address the real issues. Since we don't know who they were and we don't know where they were they were from I am not so sure we can address this issue nonviolently.

At one of my college's pride days, one lonely man in a halloween monster mask came out holding a sign that read "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" on one side and "Straight Pride" on the other side.
I remember that we were very nice to him. We commented on how beautiful the weather was and asked him what group he was representing, but he, too, refused to reveal. We congratulated him on his straight pride and said we were proud of the way we were, too, so we had that in common. He didn't say anything directly to us except that he was sorry he might offend us, but he felt like the other side had to be heard.
He stayed right next to our group for a while. :lol: I think people gave him worse looks than us.
It's so weird that someone professing straight pride was so reluctant to let themselves be known.:confused:

I just had to share this with ya'll. I went to a lesbian wedding this past Saturday, and the majority of the people there were GLBT, but a few were straight. Of the 20 tables at the reception, only one had straight people at it, the rest were GLBT. Anyway, my partner and I went out on the balcony of this restaurant the couple had rented (they had the top floor of it) and there were a few straight couples out there, and my partner and I heard them say, "I just don't feel comfortable around all these gay people, I feel so left out, and like I don't belong." I thought, "Hmmm, now you know how most of us have felt our entire lives. It's about time you feel like you don't belong and left out."
It was great! I thought, there is justice in the world.:lol: :lol: :lol:

He was probably expecting your group to put up a big fight over it. When you didn't, it must have been pretty confusing, and probably even embarrassing for him.
Or at least those are the emotions I felt when I stepped into his shoes.:tup:
