From The Oregonian: Black-clad demonstrators gathered in front of the Mars Hill Church in Southeast Portland this morning to protest the church’s stance on homosexuality.About 20 protesters lined Southeast Taylor Street carrying banners and shouting obscenities as churchgoers left when the service ended.”Shame on you bigots,” one woman yelled at worshippers as they left. “Shame on you homophobes. You’re not welcome here. You’re going to burn in hell.”
From KPTV-TV News:
The founder of Mars Hill Church preaches against homosexuality and urges gay people to turn straight. And the church’s lead pastor, Tim Smith, says they will continue to preach their beliefs.”They’re free to say what they want to say, and we are going to continue to preach our message, which is not primarily oppositioned in any particular social issue,” Smith said. “It’s about Jesus. We want people to know who Jesus is.”
