Attacked by Tolerance This footage shows how volunteers with Tradition, Family, and Property were attacked for supporting traditional marriage. In this video, you will see TFP volunteers being assaulted, threatened, pepper sprayed, hit with glass bottles, sprayed with pesticide, punched, and spit on. And their literature was stolen, ripped and burned. But before we see this shocking footage, please know that whenever TFP volunteers organize rallies, their conduct is peaceful and respectful, never aggressive. And our message is positive. The banners and signs say: “God’s marriage equals one man and one woman.” or: “Honk for Traditional Marriage.” Those who disagree, however, are not always peaceful. The advocates of same-sex “marriage,” not only dislike the idea of true marriage, but they attack the messenger. If you support traditional marriage, please send this video to your friends. More Americans need to see how the homosexual movement attacks the sanctity of marriage, and threatens freedom of speech. Will CNN and MSNBC run this footage? Probably not… So, please share with your friends. God bless you! This man, who was obviously pro-homosexual had shaken up a large two liter bottle of soda, and opened it up and ran from behind us and began to spray us and got it all over our clothes. I was at Arizona State University, campaigning for traditional marriage. I was standing on the side of the street. I had a camera, my sole purpose was to keep an eye out for any trouble. We both noticed that a car that could have made it through the green light slowed down, and the passenger stuck his arm out of his window and sprayed pesticide at me. I was able to just start taking pictures as soon as the car started passing. I was getting sprayed as well. The pesticide stained my clothes, and stained the black plastic on the camera as well. What would have hit my face, hit the front of the sign. But he did manage to get some of it on my hands which had a burning sensation for 2 hours afterwards. So, when the policeman asked if we had gotten any pictures, we were able to show him all these pictures, and the policeman just started chuckling. He said this is everything we need to find these people and show what they had done. We were on campus at Berkeley, and a couple of us were standing, holding our banners there. One of the students, a young lady, started burning our flyer, the literature we were handing out. She continued kneeling there as if saying a “prayer” of some type. How can you have a discussion with someone when they take your literature and burn it? Another student grabbed a box of flyers, about 1200 flyers, and burned them in another part of the campus. The police showed up, the fire truck, and everything. But, it was apparent that these guys do not practice tolerance. They do not practice what they preach at all. The aggressiveness that was there… you have to be there to fully comprehend. If somebody doubts, if someone thinks we are exaggerating, I would recommend that they join us the next time we go to these campuses, because it is very real, you will see it if you go. As we were walking, we noticed that a car had pulled up and stopped right along the curb. A man got out and just started yelling at us, all sorts of profanities. At a certain point, he got very visibly upset, and ran around his car towards us, he came right up into my face. At a certain point he shoved me. I fell backwards. I did not fall down, but I did fall pretty far. All in the name of peace and tolerance. “You just attacked one of my friends!”
“… I will attack you too!” “Never come back!” “Go away! Go away!” “When do we want it?”
“Now!” “What do we want?”
“Equality!” -Did somebody just spit in your face?
-Yes, sir. -Who spit in your face?
-A man. I would recognize him if I saw him. Did he say anything? No. I offered him a flyer and he just spat at me. The spit landed directly on my face. It was all over my forehead, my eyebrows, except for my eyes, luckily. It did not get in my eyes. I took my handkerchief out and wiped it away. He spit it on him and immediately took off, he walked off as quickly as he could. This was not the first time. I was spit on at another intersection we did. “Do you want an ‘open minded’ discussion?” It is very quick, but it is revolting. And it shows the lack of tolerance. It shows a lot of things! They have no argument. They disagree with you, but like a child, or like someone with no self control. They just do whatever comes to mind. It is a reaction. “2, 4, 6, 8, get your hate out of our state!” After it happened, I was not going to give up! I just kept on doing it. I kept on handing out flyers, and went on with out job. He was the youngest volunteer, and that is why they picked on him. It was a normal campaign, and for no reason this young man came up and he had a Bible in his hands. He started ripping out pages and throwing them into the faces of the TFP members. And every time he would throw a piece of the Bible at a TFP member, he would insult the Catholic Church. “Is that a Bible, Sir?”
“Yeah, it is!” “You are destroying it!?”
“Yeah, untranslatable…” While this was going on, two other men came. One of them was holding a rainbow flag. And he says: “I am glad he is ripping up the Bible. I smoke drugs with the Bible!” “I smoke a joint with the Bible” Fairport, New York “Aggressor! Aggressor! Aggressor!” He jumped up, pulled it down and ripped it down. We let go and started shouting “aggressor!” at him while he was ripping up the banner. He was putting his hands into the wind holes and ripping the banner apart. He ripped the banner into several pieces, and he just threw it on the ground. Then he walked across the street. There was no debate beforehand. He did not address us beforehand. He comes across the street, he did what he did, with no debate. Where is the tolerance there? Where is the intellectual process? If you disagree with something, you address it with the person. We are just standing on the street with a banner, you know, affirming what God’s marriage is. He disagrees. So, he just attacks us? Is that how tolerance works? He came up to me and said: “Are you going to give me that sign, or am I going to have to rip it out of your hands? During this same campaign, a bottle is thrown at a TFP volunteer. “This is a beer bottle that was thrown at a TFP volunteer, from oncoming traffic.” “It was a beer bottle! They threw it out of the car.” “It hit me right here in the head!” I saw the big lump on his head. It was pretty big! It looked like it hurt! There were about seven of us, and we were campaigning at Warwick Mall. We were getting good support, a lot of honks. There where a few things thrown at us. A person in one passing car threw a water bottle at us, and drove away screaming insults. About ten minutes later, we saw the car come back and park in Dunkin’ Donuts. We were sort of prepared for what was about to happen. Then they started attacking the camera man. At that point we saw that this was not going to be a friendly confrontation. As soon as they started attacking, they started tearing the banners away from us, I went forward to try helping the camera man, because he was in the middle of the attack. The camera man actually went away with welts in the back of his head. As soon as I approached, one of the women started spraying me in the face with mace. “Get away from us!” “Call the police!” “We are being attacked by a homosexual.” When the police finally found them, their first defense was that they went there to have a friendly conversation with us, a friendly discussion. But it was clear from the video that as soon as they crossed the street, the first thing out of their mouth was: “Get them!” What I immediately heard was our people yelling: “Aggression. Aggression!” By the time I was able to make it to median, the assailants had already left. The signs of the attack were quite visible. Poor Rex I cannot remember who else got hit with the pepper spray. Their faces were red, their eyes were bloodshot, stinging. You could tell they had difficulty seeing. We were doing campaign in Augusta, Maine, in the afternoon rush. Though I was a bit distant from a few of the others A few of my colleagues did witness a Toyota truck jump the curb, and would have hit me, had I not moved out of the way. These people wearing masks, covering their face, Timonium, Maryland came up and stood in front of our banner, they were screaming all sorts of blasphemies, trying to provoke us. One of the things they screamed was: “God is dead! God is dead!” “God is dead! God is dead!” We proceeded to pray the Rosary. Their response to our rosary was one blasphemy after another. “Jesus died for His own sin, not mine!” “Jesus died for His own sin, not mine!” I have been doing campaigns for the TFP for decades, on a variety of issues. I have never seen more agregious examples of intolerance, then the reactions of homosexual activists on these campaigns. When a person has to resort to violence, it looks like it is because they have lost the spoken debate, the debate of the word. And that was pretty clear to all of us, that they did not like the reaction that we were arousing in the public. So they wanted to do their best to stop it. And the only resort they had was violence.
Is this tolerance? “If the world hates you, know ye, that it hath hated Me before you” (John 15:18). “…but have confidence, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). In over 31 states, Americans have said: “No, no we do not want marriage to change.” That means that the majority of Americans do not want same-sex “marriage.” This issue is attacking us, our beliefs, and we should stand up for what is right. In a peaceful and legal manner, but we have to do this. This is our future. We know what marriage is. We know how God intended it to be. And we do not want counterfeits. I think more Americans need to wake up and see that type of tolerance that the homosexual movement preaches is just a big lie. The reason we are being attacked is because those people see that we are effective. They do not like the message that we are giving out. So they try to silence us. It does not deter us, it does not stop us. It shows how really important and really necessary this fight for traditional marriage really is. More then ever we are going to go to more cities, more states, more college campuses to defend traditional marriage. We know God’s law. We are there to defend His law. The more the homosexual movement attacks traditional marriage, the more we will be ready to defend it. If you think we are going to give up because of some petty attack? Well, you wrong! We are never going to give up! We will never give up! We are not going to give up! We will never give up! We are ready to go. At a moments notice, we are there. We are not going to give up! Will CNN and MSNBC run this footage? Probably not. So please share with your friends. God bless you! May God protect America from the homosexual agenda.
