You know, when I saw the title to this thread I thought I was going to witness a real attack. I was thinking I was going to see some senior citizen
being accosted physically and was going to be appalled by the direction that this movement was going. Instead, I see some lady smiling and laughing
and being verbally berated by protesters. Calling this an "attack" is quite preposterous.
As far as allowing her to "speak her mind," IMO she did that when she brought her cross with her. What, did you think she was going to enlighten
the crowd or the viewers with some new insight into the issue? Everyone knew what she was going to say, I will give you a hint. It starts with an
"s" and ends with an "in"...sin, sin, sin.
This woman, and quite frankly way to many members of a certain religion, feel that their moral beliefs somehow trump others civil rights. To be
honest, I probably would not have allowed her to speak either, and I am not even gay. I am just sick of people acting like their moral beliefs
derived from the Bible hold some precedence over the civil rights of others.
If you want to see a real attack, wait until the right wingers have a demonstration and a gay person steps in to voice their opinion. Then you will
see something worthy of the word "attack". I don't know what was more ridiculous, the title to this thread or the responses from many of its
participants who demonize the protesters for being unwilling to tolerate this woman's self righteous views.
