Lady Checkmate's headline: "Hateful, Radical, "Militant" LGBT group Targets and Harasses Christian Church (wants to "run the church out of town")
Don't forget to RECOMMEND. Thanks.
A hateful, self-described "militant" LGBT group, the Christophobic, Stonewall Militant Front-ATX, is targetting, harassing and attempting to oust a beloved mega-church.
Celebration Church has come under fire for adhering to traditional bible teachings. The Pastor, Joe Champion, has stated, "We believe that marriage is a lifelong covenant between a man and a woman, God-designed—and do not endorse or condone it in any other context."
Clearly, Joe is correct, but what we need to bring attention to is the Christophobia and hate coming from the alt-left, hate that must be called by name and resisted by every patriotic, constitution-supporting American whether Christian or not because what's at stake here is freedom-freedom of thought, freedom of belief, freedom of religion and freedom of speech (in our own country, our own spaces, homes and places of worship), i.e., Constitutional rights.
Celebration Church holds to a belief shared by thousands of other churches across the nation. "Our focus is and has always been as what we do as a church—serving the community—spreading the word of God based on the Bible. And we continue to do that," the pastor said.
Sounds good right? There is no hate in Joe's message nor the church's purpose. Yet, the militant alt-left has decided to introduce their strawmans and insert their own hate and demand that the school district renting a facility to the church for weekly services, end the church's contract. The attorney general however disagrees with the hateful Stonewall Militant Group and has stated it would be unconstitutional to single-out the Bible-believing church for their beliefs, but allow others who believe differently to still rent from the school district.
"Excluding churches from a government forum or program due to their religious nature is odious to our Constitution," Mateer wrote in his letter to the school district.
The attorney general's office said the school district is "targeting Celebration Church for discriminatory treatment."
"The District's proposal to exclude churches with traditional beliefs about marriage, while allowing churches that agree with same-sex marriage to continue renting its facility smacks of denominational preference, and is unconstitutional," he wrote.
The radical Christiphobic group has already protested and picketed the church during Sunday worship services—calling congregants "anti-LGBT bigots."
Here are a couple more examples of the "love" the alt-left claims they want to spread, from their own mouths and social media accounts:
"They think they can use their money to spread their hate in our city and our halls—we are going to run them out," the organization wrote on its Facebook page.
"If bigoted churches come to town opposing the existence of LGBTQ people, the masses must organize and take the fight to the church doors and oppose their existence in Austin," they wrote.
Interestingly enough, Pastor Joe Champion has said the focus of their church is to share the love of Jesus Christ with their community. And he rejected any accusations that the mega-church is homophobic.
"God called us to love everyone, and we welcome everyone in the community to attend our church."
Again, I didn't read any messages of hate in Joe's words nor on the church's website. It seems alt-left radicals love hating Bible-believing Christians and anyone that disagrees with them. Now, they're planning to bring their fight to the church's front doors. Hmmm, who's next? Are you next? How about the religion of love, the Muslims?
