Almost immediately the church received hateful phone calls and Facebook page posts. Among the menacing, profanity-laced phone calls was at least one arson threat. Homosexual activists and local liberals waged a vicious campaign against the church because it posted a message on its outdoor sign disagreeing with “gay marriage.”
A local CBS TV report (video below) parroted their language, calling the sign “anti-gay.”
Homosexual activists also came and put hateful signs on the Church property. One sign said “Holy Mother Virgin Whore” and another said “Jesus freaks pray for death.” Two activists stood outside the church for about an hour.
