    A Texas couple feels they have to flee their home for their own safety after finding the message "LEAVE OR DIE FAGS" painted on their front porch! The couple say they have noticed a change in people’s attitudes towards them after an advert about the ‘homosexual movement’ was published in the local newspaper the Clarendon Enterprise by Pastor Chris Moore of the Clarendon Church of Christ.

    In it, Moore warns the town: ‘Folks, don’t be fooled, the “gay” agenda isn’t about “equal” rights for gay couples… Their agenda would force everyone to compromise their values, make our children legal prey for pedophiles.’

    That preacher has to be one of the biggest morons. Yes, that's the whole agenda of the gay movement: to expose children to pedophiles.

    Sometimes it feels like we're taking a step back with things like these but we're slowly moving forward. History will shame religion because of people like that.

    I can see why they'd be scared and want to leave. It's too bad they're letting the bigots win though. I'm sure there are gay youth in that town and other towns like it who can't leave and will be pushed deeper into the closet over incidents like this one.

    People rewrite history unfortunately. Back in the days of U.S. slavery churches supported the ownership of slaves and were able to point to passages in the New Testament that allowed for it.

    Yes, and it was churches that opposed women's sufferage and emancipation from being their husband's chattel.

    Churches are fucking evil. Especially the backwoods small town ones.

    In Texas, can't you legally shoot someone just for stepping on your property? Now I'm in no way advocating senseless gun violence, but the couple does have the option of arming themselves for protective purposes. Seeing gays get pushed around like this boils my blood. icon_evil.gif

    "Prey for pedophiles"? I thought that was the Church and Vatican's agenda. They should take out their own advertisement and make those charges against this "church".

    That is just horrific. And it's just too risky to stand up for themselves there...

    No it's not. That's the kind of environment I came out in. All you need is a good shotgun and some fairly decent marksman skills. icon_wink.gif

    Well Down Under and NZ where the two countries to give women the vote when women in the US had to still fight for it.

    We also had the first out gay man on TV in the 1970s, and he ended up in the first gay relationship too. Good old "Number 96."

    You are right I well recall the gay plauge era, and how many in Sf where to die because of the liberals lack of being pro active, then they wanted to lay the blame on President Reagan, and liberals of today want to rewrite that history to hid their shame.
