Westboro Baptist targets Gay Christian Network in anti-gay protest

0

Westboro Baptist Church, which mounts aggressive protests in its campaigns against homosexuality, targeted the Gay Christian Network conference in Portland, Oregon yesterday.

Among the participants was author and worship leader Vicky Beeching, who said on Facebook: “I made sure I said hello to them, told them God loved them & so did I, and that the Gay Christian Network conference had nothing but love and grace to extend to them.”

Elswhere she wrote, “Was a pretty unpleasant environment to walk through, right before I spoke, but thankfully these loud angry people are not representative of most Christians.”

Other Christians from Portland formed a protective screen for the participants, numbering around 1,300 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Christians.

OregonLive quoted Tony Kriz, an evangelical author, as saying: “I’m not comfortable with hate of any kind in my city. It has nothing to do with what you believe morally. Everybody needs to know they are loved.”

In her address to the conference Beeching said that “Christianity is less of a fixed, concrete faith and more about a relationship with a God who is alive and living” and “Our theology has become so systematised, so categorised, it can feel less like a living thing and more like … taxidermy.”

She also said, “I love Jesus as much as I ever have. And I’m gay. Deal with it.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
