"Gay" Protesters' Anger, Rage, & Hatred Indescribable

Here is another report on the violent, hateful demonstration against the "Love Won Out" conference led by ex-gays and Focus on the Family last Saturday in Boston (Oct. 29 at the Tremont Temple Baptist Church). Are the churches of America ready for more of this? It's coming their way soon.

Conference Meets Behind Police Lines As Antiwar Pro-gay Rally Shouts Obscenities and Demands “Shut it Down! Shut it Down!”

The scene outside the Tremont Temple in Boston last Saturday was one of tumult and confusion as an angry crowd vented their rage at evangelicals attending a conference on the compassionate treatment of homosexuals. In the words of one attendee at the conference, “The anger, rage, and hatred were indescribable.”

The conference entitled “Love Won Out” was sponsored by Dr. James Dobson’s Focus on the Family. The organizers of the conference had been warned to expect a crowd of 6,000 protestors. Most of the crowd was drawn from an anti-war rally on Boston Commons which featured Cindy Sheehan. The anti-war rally, organized by a group calling itself “The October 29th Coalition,” then joined forces with a gay rights group called “The Stonewall Warriors.” The name “Stonewall” of course, is taken from the “Stonewall Riot” in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, which launched the gay rights movement.

On Saturday morning, the antiwar protestors gathered outside Tremont Temple where the conference was underway, and using PA systems, shouted obscenities and yelled “Shut it down! Shut it down!” for almost 45 minutes.

When one pastor went outside to photograph the “protest march,” he saw a crowd which filled the block and stretched in a long line down both ends of the street. The pastor was warned by the police to go inside and not come out again, for his own protection.

Inside Tremont Temple, there was an atmosphere of quiet respect and compassion for homosexuals, and a great deal of prayer, as former homosexuals told how Christ had changed their lives, and Christians shared how people can find compassionate answers to the problems of homosexuality.
