Can You See the Hate in Their Eyes?

A "witness" for Article 8 said that the counterprotesters had "hate in their eyes". Check it out for yourselves:

Hmm, I don't know. "Proud of Lexington Schools" seems pretty hateful to me. It's in league with hateful, unpatriotic messages like "Support Our Troops." Right. The Article 8/Parker people KNOW that Lexington is not going to cave to discriminatory, political Christian pressure. And it's a sad commentary that they would hide their faces and refuse to be identified for quotation (according to the Lexington Minuteman, Sept. 8, 2005). So they just LIE.

Is there a link to more nice pictures, or do those of us who live far from Lexington have to subsist on these little crumbs?

If I look really closely, I can see the hate in their eyes. On the other hand, if I listen to David Parker speak I can hear the hate in his words.

I hope they had "hate" in their eyes and I hope the article 8 protesters felt uneasy. How do they think we feel when strangers scream hateful banter at us and they don't even know us? Last year at the ConCon, many of us were terrified of the anti-gay protesters. I am tired of being made to feel like we are perverts asking for special rights. I just want to be treated with respect and dignity. Also, I am sickened that I even need anyone's permission, in the first place, to get married, adopt children, be in the military, and donate blood. What ever happened to equality? If you are a minority, uneducated, poor or gay in this country, you are screwed. If you are white, educated and heterosexual you get to be in the private exclusive club with special rights.

Many of us (gays) are REALLY pissed right now, especially after the horrible day for gay rights yesterday. Wait to they see the hate in our eyes and our voices next Wednesday. They are in for a rude awakening...

So who is going to be the first to send Mr. Mass Resistence a wedding invite now that we have their information? How about Ms. MassResistance? Perhaps we could invite them out to our baptisms and our confirmations and things of that nature as well - we are ordinary folk too you know. Maybe out for a sox game as well?

Thanks for the pix, though I doubt the fundies and other anti-gay types will view them the same as I. To hear the dreadful slurs against homosexuals, or read them on Websites or in the Herald is odd enough. Then to hear them say, "No, no, you're the hateful one. Calling us homophobic is hate speech," is too much.

To all of us pinkos who grew up believing that we could sway by example, reason, and discussion, we find it disheartening. Maybe some of these people are just unreachable, unreasonable, and in such emotional need that they are what they are.

Maybe, just maybe, when folk here get used to SSM, their hatred might subside, but even that may be tough for them. I can't resist thinking that someday they might turn to an ex-hater ministry.

Now that David Parker's stirring speech is available on the Article 8 website, we know, specifically, where he stands:

"Realize that a discussion on transgenderism and gay-headed relationships, while claiming to only present reality to children, usually morphs into approval and acceptance. This occurs in a conversation seamlessly and without your notification."

Yet, somehow, he seems to believe that there's a place for him the Lexington schools, a place where "gay-headed relationships" exist, are approved of, and are absolutely accepted.

But we are the side representing intolerance. Go figure.

The Lexington newspaper, The Lexington Minuteman, had a write up about the "rally" for David Parker today. However, they did not mention what Article8 has reported: i.e. that Mr. Parker had to be whisked away by police who felt his safety was imperiled by the evil and hateful pro-homosexual 'activist' (how 8-11 year old boys and girls can be labeled evil and hateful activists is still somewhat of a mystery to me). If indeed Mr. Parker's safety was at stake, how is it he was able to give his (Brian Camenker written) speech? Why has the Lexington Minuteman not reported anything related to Mr. Parker's safety or that he had to be escorted away from the crowd by the police?
