We are absolutely not intolerant bigots, and we believe that strong moral convictions must go hand in hand with respectful and gracious treatment of all people. So we reach out to homosexual men and women with compassion, but we resist with courage their agenda to reshape America.”
— Michael L. Brown, Director of the Coalition of Conscience, on his Charlotte event
Yes, he’s full of compassion, isn’t he? Mr. Coalition of Conscience is holding a rally on May 6 to Celebrate the delay of Charlotte Pride, which lost the use of the public park it had held part of the event in the past.
The wingers, including Rev. Flip Benham of Operation Save America, have been proclaiming blanket “victory” over the Homosexual AgendaTM over this, and this latest attempt to “prove” the homobigots are surging in numbers and power is incredibly pathetic. From the “Christian” news outlet, LifeSiteNews:
The first-ever “Not Ashamed Charlotte” rally will unite Christians from different churches to proclaim their faith in the public square, replacing the annual gay pride event usually scheduled for early May in Marshall Park. The Christian rally will be held from 3-4 p.m. May 6 in the park. According to Dr. Michael L. Brown, Director of the Coalition of Conscience and organizer of Not Ashamed Charlotte, the timing of this event is highly significant.
“For the last four years,” Brown explains, “on the first Saturday of May, Marshall Park has been will filled with as many as 3,000 gays and lesbians celebrating Charlotte Pride.” This gay pride event, marked by public lewdness and obscenity, has drawn protest from various Christian groups. Mayor Pat McCrory has also voiced his displeasure with the Charlotte Pride event being held in a public park. In other cities, similar gay pride events have drawn upwards of 100,000 participants.
“This year,” Brown states, “the Charlotte Pride organizers had to delay their event, and we were able to get the park for our rally. So, instead of transvestite dancers simulating sex in the presence of toddlers and little children, we will be proclaiming the goodness of God and the love of Jesus. And instead of vendors advertising hot nudist camps, we will be standing together with our families proclaiming that we are not ashamed of purity and morality and wholesome living.”
This is heinous. Local gay publication QNotes dispels the myth that Charlotte pride is on the ropes.
I fully expect that Mecklenburg County Commissioner, the wild-eyed, anally fixated bigot Bill James, to show up at a rally like this of The Base.
