Protester disrupts Portland service

March 29, 2017

By Faith News Note,

Nearly a half hour into a Sunday service at a Portland church last month, an angry man stormed to the altar, clapping loudly, and ordered people to “Listen up!,” according to a KATU television report.

He then spewed anti-homosexual rhetoric in front of the openly gay pastor of Parkrose Community United Church of Christ, describing homosexuality as “wrong” and “an abomination to God.” The congregation encircled the man to protect Pastor Don Frueh and escorted him to the door.

The pastor said the man is welcome to return to the church as long as he leaves his anger at the door. “If anger controls us, then we’ve lost it,” Freuh told the KATU reporter. “I think we’ve lost the message of the gospel, which is about love.”
