When Will Gay Terrorism Against Churches End? When Will Elected Officials Start Denouncing it Instead of Civilized Voters’ Decision?
By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
I blame inept California Governor and faux-Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger, in part, for the violence of gay terrorists who are attacking California’s Black and Mormon churches over the decision of California voters to end gay marriage vis-a-vis Proposition 8.
Instead of focusing on urging California’s gay activists to accept the decision of voters–the same ones who unfortunately elected him–Schwarzenegger exacerbated things by denouncing voters’ decision at the ballot box.
Where is he now on the thuggish attacks on LDS and Black churches? Not as vocal or as harsh as he’s been on voters. Where are his calls for tolerance? Restricted, apparently, for the toleration of marriage between the Terminator and Kindergarten Cop.
I also blame gay leaders and spokespeople for not restraining their activist minions. Why, for example, won’t Ellen Degeneres–who supports gay marriage and was quite vocal on Prop 8–tell her audience that it’s wrong to physically attack churches when you don’t agree with their politics?
Although the reports below are not from California, plenty of vandalism against churches there is taking place. It began after California voters rejected gay marriage, a move that was heavily funded by the LDS church and which had the support of many Black churchgoers who came out to vote for Obama.
Seven churches in Utah attacked:
Another church building belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been vandalized. This incident in Sandy is the seventh in a string of vandalisms targeting the Church’s chapels. Churches in Weber and Davis counties were also hit by vandals over the weekend, raising concerns about a possible hate crime. In those incidents, vandals shattered doors and windows.
“It appears a projectile, a smaller projectile, has hit the window, obviously with enough force to break the window,” said Sandy police Sgt. Justin Chapman.
A custodian called police when he saw the damage to the door of the LDS chapel at 11500 S. Wasatch Blvd. around 8:30 last night. Police say a BB gun or Airsoft pellet gun could be to blame.
“Of course it’s concerning, because it is a church,” Chapman said.
Vandals targeted several other LDS Churches over the weekend.
Gays in Michigan do to churches what we could never get away with doing to mosques. Oh, and why aren’t they protesting the mosques? We don’t put gays to death here in this mostly Christian country, but they do, in fact, do so in many Islamic countries.
A well-known Lansing-area evangelical church was the target of a raucous demonstration by gay anarchists during Sunday services.
The disruption came from a group that calls itself Bash Back, and involved demonstrations outside the church and inside the sanctuary while services were under way, said Mt. Hope Church communications director David Williams.
Members of the group inside the church shouted pro-gay slogans, threw leaflets, unfurled a banner and pulled a fire alarm, then hastily departed, Williams said. There were no injuries, he said.
Williams said the episode was over in minutes. Eaton County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrived quickly, Williams said, but no arrests were made. Police were not available for comment Tuesday.
No arrests. Hmmm . . . if I invaded a mosque and did these things, do you think I’d get away with it?
**** UPDATE: The “Tolerance” has spread to Colorado.
A fire outside a Littleton church is being investigated as a bias-motivated arson that may have stemmed from the church’s position on a gay marriage amendment in California.
Arapahoe County sheriff’s deputies responded to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, some three hours after a church member found a burning copy of The Book of Mormon on a door step.
