However, a spokesman for the Delta Township Fire Department, which covers fire issues in the area, said today the department had not received any fire alarm calls nor did they respond to one in the area of the church on Sunday.So, no fire alarm.What about the assault. The disruption of services, surely those radical, left-wing commie-homo-hippies went after those poor, god-fearing-salt-of-the-earth bigots, er I mean, victims. After all, why would they make these claims if it weren't true, yet lies even in the large:
According to the City Pulse, the protest involved two different groups of protesters, an inside team and an outside team. The outside team held a legitimate protest, holding signs and chanting; the inside team, according to the report, dressed to blend in so they could disrupt the service:Here. Or continue to claim "victim" status:
A gay anarchist group infiltrated the Mt. Hope Church in Eaton County Sunday morning, disrupting a service by pulling a fire alarm, dropping leaflets and yelling at parishioners, a pastor said.
The group, Bash Back, was simultaneously picketing outside the church, beating on buckets and using a megaphone to shout “Jesus was a homo” and other slogans as confused churchgoers continued to enter the building.
Members of Bash Back issued a press release Tuesday saying that it targeted Mt. Hope, a church that claims a flock of around 5,000, because it is, “complicit in the repression of homosexuals in Michigan and beyond.”
Also, a church press release stated that "The Eaton County Sheriff's office was called and the illegal demonstration ceased." In a follow-up email, Mount Hope Church communications director David Williams asserted that "the demonstration is under investigation."What really happened according to Eaton County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Warder:
ZOMG! SOME of them parked in the parking lot. And removed their cars. And went home.
"They were picketing," Warder said. "The church security people came out, the pastor contacted the deputies and told us we want them off our property. We had to tell them they [the protesters] were on public property."
After further discussion with protesters, it was determined some had parked in the church's parking lot. Officers directed that the vehicles be removed from the lot, or the owners could face trespassing charges for retrieving them if police had to return. The protest broke up as a result of that, according to the sheriff.
No crime. No assault. No service disruption. Just a picket of a bigoted church who engaged in politics and made themselves fair game. And there is NO investigation. Everything was legal except the parking and they removed their cars when ordered so there not even a trespassing charge.
Instead, what we have is just another case of lying Christians lying to advance their bigotry and cry foul when people peacefully push their hatred back to them. I, for one, am not surprised because these hypocrites do that all the time about almost everything when it comes to social issues and/or their perceived martyrdom.
Just like the Catholic Church that constantly potrays itself as "victim" in the peodophile Priest cover-up.
