Sunday November 9th 2008
The smug, smiling members of Dallas First Baptist Church greeted the 100 angry protesters with robotic programed message "we love you". But soon this smugness was replaced with a look of horror as they learned of the reality of advertising homophobic bigotry as their own church has done.
Look what you have done
You put up a message as this and it will push a killer to believe that they you are morally justified in their killing such as gunman at the Unitarian Universalist church, the 10 year old killer of Lawrence King who walked up behind Lawrence and blew his head off, the murderer 18 year old Angie Zapata who smashed "it again" with a fire extinguisher because he saw....
"IT MOVE AGAIN".
2008 = 20 transgender smashed bloody mutilated corpses.
There has been much gloating from "religious" figures who were instrumental in the recent Marriage Equality initiatives. The Transgender Day of Remembrance is November 20. And you love me?
DO YOU LOVE THEM?
The lady nearly in tears as I shown her my own scars. This is the reality. A gang beat me nearly to death and you good Baptists stepped over my lifeless body on the cold city street.
Do you really love me?
How about this baby?
We want you to leave us live. We have our faith, our gods, or none at all.
Some North Texans said they plan to picket a Dallas church because of a sign reading, "Why gay is not OK."
The topic of Sunday's sermon at the First Baptist Dallas Church is, "Why gay is not OK." It is written on the church's sign at the corner of Ervay and Patterson streets in the heart of downtown Dallas.
"I am surprised that in 2008, any church would have a sign like this out," Grace McFerrin said.
