Homosexuals Storm Michigan Church During Sunday Service

On Sunday, November 9, 2008 a band of about 30 homosexual extremists stormed a church in Lansing, Michigan USA. During the service the protesters outside the church were beating on buckets, shouting “Jesus was a homo” on a megaphone and carrying an upside-down pink cross.

Some were well dressed and positioned inside Mount Hope Church, where they pretended to be normal Sunday worshippers; others were outside dressed in pink and black.

When the signal was given the protesters inside the church rose from their seats and began to disrupt the service. The fire alarm was activated, protesters stormed the pulpit and a huge rainbow-colored flag was unfurled with the inscription, “IT’S OKAY TO BE GAY! BASH BACK!” The church was vandalized, obscenities were shouted and worshippers were confronted. Some Christians say that these actions are a form of 'hate crime' against them.

The homosexual terrorists call themselves 'Bash Back'. Who exactly are they going to bash? It seems that they have an agenda to attack and harass people of good will, especially people who don't agree with homosexual acts.

Notice the similarities between the homosexual terrorists and the Palestinian terrorists. Both cover their faces so that they

cannot be identified, therefore making it more difficult to arrest them for their crimes.

Bash Back! issued a press release on their website after the fact, which admitted that “the group was extremely loud and wildly offensive. The release concluded, “Let it be known: So long as bigots kill us in the streets, this pack of wolves will continue to BASH BACK!”

Who are the 'bigots who kill them in the streets?” They seem to think it is the people who attended church on that day, otherwise why would they target them for violent protest? I don't know about you but I have never seen church going people roaming the streets looking for homosexuals to kill. It seems to me that they are just angry because some people claim that homosexual acts are evil. It is time that minority groups like these learnt to tolerate other people's opinions and if they wish to protest do it in a non violent way.

It is becoming more evident that violence is a part of the homosexual life style.

Extensive research indicates that suicide, molestation, and violence are factors found to be disproportionately high in the homosexual

subgroup. Another site claimed that a third of all teen suicides are by people who practice homosexual acts.

These people don't need our condemnation but our support. Those who suffer from a same sex attraction disorder are encouraged to seek help. I can understand that these people possibly can't help being sexually attracted to people of the same sex. We all have disordered desires of some kind, but just because a desire is part of one’s makeup does not mean that it is morally acceptable to act out on it.

I think that homosexual desires are not in themselves sinful. People are subject to a wide variety of desires over which they have little direct control, but these do not become sinful until a person acts upon them. People tempted by homosexual desires, like people tempted by improper heterosexual desires, are not sinning until they act upon those desires in some manner.

People have a basic, ethical intuition that certain behaviors are wrong because they are unnatural. We perceive intuitively that the natural sex partner of a human is another human, not an animal.

The same reasoning applies to the case of homosexual behavior. The natural sex partner for a man is a woman, and the natural sex partner for a woman is a man. Thus, people have the corresponding intuition concerning homosexuality that they do about bestiality—that it is wrong because it is unnatural.

So what is the church's position on homosexuality?

The church says that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. (CCC 2357)

The Church says that “People suffering from a same sex attraction must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. (CCC 2358)

You Christians-- hypocritical as usual. When you discriminate against gays, why are you surprised when they bash you back? Comparing these guys to terrorists isn't going to get you any sympathy. Your religion is bullshit-- has been, always will be, and I hope it becomes extinct like the prehistoric brainless blunder on the face of humanity that it is. Religion is bunk.

It doesn't matter if Christianity is fact or fiction, the issue is about one group harassing another group. Gate crashing an event for the purpose of disrupting it is not going to get "Bash Back" any sympathy or make it easy for others to take their concerns seriously.

Several issues.. first off homosexuality is indeed known in nature, to claim it as opposite to "natural law" is ridiculous. It is in fact quite natural.

"It seems that they have an agenda to attack and harass people of good will, especially people who don't agree with homosexual acts"

Yes, see, the thing about that is... calling homophobic bigots people of good will is also ridiculous.

Yes, the bible says that homosexuality is an abomination.. but then again it also says the same thing about shellfish. Yet somehow shellfish are okay and these people of good will would rather persecute a minority to make themselves feel good.

"Who are the 'bigots who kill them in the streets?” They seem to think it is the people who attended church on that day, otherwise why would they target them for violent protest?"

You need to check up on the term "violent", it doesn't seem to mean what you think it does. Calling it a hate crime when people say "it's okay to be gay" is pushing the limits of credibility.

Of course church goers commit violent acts against homosexuals. And I don't mean "walk into their church, a building supposedly open to the public, and state that it's okay to be homosexual". I mean good old fashioned persecution, the kind of thing any student of religion should be familiar with.

These "people of good will" have been marginalizing minorities for centuries. Remember cross burnings? The cross wasn't just a handy piece of lumber, it was a symbol of a certain religion that would prefer to forget that period of time where the bible was used in support of the idea that black people did not deserve to be treated the same as white people.

You need to check up on the history of public protest. Black people didn't get basic civil rights by tolerating the opinions of bigots. They DEMANDED them.

It's the 21st century, it's time to realize that an anthology of bronze age mythology that contradicts even itself is not a reliable guide for anything, much less on which members of society deserve civil rights.

Oh, one last thing. You might want to read that study you referenced again. It doesn't mean what you think it means. It does NOT say that violence is a part of the life style. It's tremendously dishonest of you to try to claim it as such.

As to homosexuals being more suicide prone.. geee.. what do you think that might be? Do you think that being on the receiving end of constant hatred by "people of good will" might have a negative effect over time?

How dare you suggest that chronic depression as a result of persecution by others is evidence that violence is part of a life style?

You are blaming the victim.

There are many in the gay activist community that would love to claim the title of victim. You're not a victim if you choose how you live. We all make choices. Running into someone else's church, disrupting services and tossing condoms in the air doesn't make YOU a victim.

This is about so much more than YOU. It's about respect, civility, it's about democracy and freedom, it's about a lot of things, but watching people run into a place of worship to "bash back" is not evidence of victimhood, it's evidence of selfish people who thought this was a good way to get some attention for themselves.

For you to wink and nod and defend shows where your priorities lie.

What I object to with the protests that came as a result of Proposition 8 was the immediate and hateful response of the gay community. It was their duplicity in calling pro-marriage folks hateful while all the time spewing hateful invectives at particular groups, like the Mormons or the Catholics. The churches have always plainly stated their stand on homosexual practices and on the meaning of marriage and the family. The true hypocrisy stemmed from a group of people who took to the streets to condemn another group for its beliefs.

Nomad, do you have your own blog where your ideas on these issues are presented?

* * *

Your comment displays an ignorance of the Bible that has become far too common among those who advocate and support SSM (aka SSMers).

* * *

The BashBack troupe presents itself deliberately to evoke images of terrorists. They invite the comparison in the costumes and their rhetoric. Their group name is blatant.

That troupe does not merit positive comparison with the civil rights movement of the 1960s. A different more radical branch of black nationalism, maybe.

* * *

As for the violence inflicted by gays on gays, and also in terms of suicide, that's tragic but is not simply the fault of non-gays.

Claiming victim status to make expansive claims on society is the political art of grievance mongering. That has come to signify identity politics of the worst kind.

Your remarks appear to be openly heterophobic. Do you agree?

The Pomegranate Apple said... can't really use the shellfish example to argue the invalidity of the bible. it exposes your own lack in knowledge

Nomad said...

Oh really? So you mean to tell me that the bible does NOT use equivalent language when referring to shellfish and homosexuality?

You accuse me of being ignorant of the bible.. so.. surely you can tell me that it does NOT use the same language when referring to both homosexuality, and shellfish. Right? I mean you haven't done so far, you've just thrown baseless accusations.. but presumably you really do have an explanation.

Euripides.. you've got to be kidding me. You're calling anti homosexual bigots as "pro marriage"? The people who are on a campaign to prevent a certain minority from having the right to marry are known as pro marriage?
This is really a discussion for another post, the one that claims that homosexual marriages hurt straight marriages because straight marriages are good, so there.


"Your remarks appear to be openly heterophobic. Do you agree?"

Bzzzzt! Wrong answer. I'm not even homosexual. But feel free, list one sentence I've used that can be claimed to express fear, or more accurately hatred (because that's really what homophobia is about, not fear, but good old fashioned hate) against people who feel sexual attraction to the opposite sex.

No, I'm anti bigot. The worst you could say of me is that I'm intolerant of intolerant people. I really don't think you want to go down that rabbit hole, that's not a particularly productive avenue to pursue.

Homosexual acts are not natural. The purpose of sexual intercourse is to reproduce the human race, it is part of our nature. Every sexual act needs to be open to the possibility of new life in order to correspond with its purpose. Homosexual sex will never produce new life due to the very nature of the act therefore will not fulfill the purpose of sex therefore is not part of human nature.

nomad said, "I'm not even homosexual."

So what?

You said that "church goers commit violent acts against homosexuals ... good old fashioned persecution. ... You are blaming the victim."

By your own stated standards, your comments here and under other blogposts express hatred.

You depend on the false dichotomy of gay vs straight.

There is equality, nomad, despite your fear of the Bible and your hatred of church goers.

Again, I am merely using your own stated standards.
