It might be called “Gay Pride Week,” but the behavior by this lesbian group in Seattle is nothing to be proud of.
Two calm, quiet, and clean cut Christian men showed up at a public gay pride event. One was held a sign, and the other wore a t-shirt that said “Trust Jesus” and held a Bible. The two men did nothing to provoke or antagonize the people gathered for the event, but were attacked nevertheless.
Both men were pushed and yelled at multiple times but still did not retaliate with equal force.
One woman went up to the Christian man holding the sign, and yelled, “If I were you I would fucking leave! If I were you I would leave! If I were you I would leave…your [hard to distinguish words, but she’s pointing at the other Christian man with the “Trust Jesus” t-shirt] will get his ass raped!”
Later in the video, a group of men rush at the sign-holding Christian. One particularly aggressive bald man even begins to forcefully hit him. The man in the “Trust Jesus” shirt rushed to help his friend.
The person who filmed the incident, and then uploaded it onto YouTube, wrote:
While photographing this event, I witnessed a growing anger from some of the crowd, towards the preachers. All of a sudden a few members in the crowd attacked the street preachers. I switched to video to document the incident.
I DO NOT condone what the attackers did. While I don’t agree with these preachers, it is their Constitutional right to be in public and preach.
I think it is tragic that some of the people who justifiably want tolerance in their life, deny that same tolerance to others. I commend the responding Seattle PD Officers for the professional way they handled this situation. The main aggressor was arrested.
On a side note: I think it is a testament to the assailants and aggressors that the Seattle PD removes a PBR can and some liquor bottle from the top of the baby buggy this woman has her children in. Where were those children while their caretakers were beating innocent people up?
The videographer is right. For a population who prides itself on being tolerant, this particular group was awfully intolerant, agressive, and profane.
Too bad the mainstream press has no interest in this story.
One can’t help but think the same behavior would be blown up and condoned by the mainstream media if Christians were filmed beating up peaceful gay protestors.
