Federal Suit Filed Against "Gay Anarchists" Over Church Service Disruption

Anti-gay legal group Alliance Defense Fund has filed a federal lawsuit against the "gay anarchists" who last November disrupted a Michigan church service by pulling the fire alarm, dropping pro-gay leaflets, and shouting "Jesus was a homo" at parishioners. Via Christian site The Voice:
“The use of violent threats and criminal behavior to make a political point should never be acceptable in America,” said ADF attorney Gary McCaleb. “Bash Back! revealed how dangerous the homosexual agenda is to our First Liberty, religious freedom. We filed this suit to stop Bash Back! and other activist groups from invading churches, disrupting worship, silencing pastors, and terrifying adults and children who attend religious services.”

The Bash Back! Web site, which features a banner photo of members dressed in terrorist-like garb and wielding various objects as weapons, states on one page of the site that the group’s activities include “Riots, Sex Work, Crime, Insurrection, you know the fun stuff we do.” The Lansing chapter of the group targeted Mount Hope Church because of the church’s well-known Christian views on marriage and homosexual behavior. Through another page of its Web site, the group covertly recruited participants for its plans on Nov. 9, seeking some who would be willing to maintain “a more ‘militant’-looking presence out side [sic] of the building.”
It was a dumbass, pointless, unfocused action directed at hapless nobodies. Nothing but a black eye for our movement.
