Seattle gay pride participants viciously beat Christian street preacher (VIDEO)

Posted by   + Show Post


SEATTLE, WA, July 4, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A street preacher was repeatedly punched in the head and kicked by two men at Seattle’s Pridefest this past Sunday – and the entire confrontation was caught on camera. 

In disturbing video footage uploaded on Youtube and reported by Seattle’s KOMO news, two Christian street preachers can be seen standing on a grassy area. One of the preachers holds a sign that says “Jesus saves and heals,” and “Repent or else,” while the other holds a Bible. 

At the beginning of the video a large man approaches the two preachers angrily, while another woman repeatedly shoves the man carrying the Bible and demands that the two men leave.

The situation continues to heat up, until at one point a number of people attempt to snatch the sign away from the sign-wielding preacher.  When one man succeeds, a melee ensues in which the angry man seen at the beginning of the video runs at and punches the preacher in the head several times while another kicks him repeatedly. Others attempted to break up the fight. 

Police arrested 36-year-old Jason Queree, who is suspected of being the main attacker. Queree reportedly has a long history of arrests and convictions for a wide variety of criminal behavior. A second suspect was also arrested.

WARNING: The video is full of profanity and shows disturbing violence. Viewer discretion advised. The extreme violence commences at 2:35 into the video.

 

The incident is reminiscent of an episode that took place at last year's Toronto Pride Parade, also caught on video, where a street preacher was surrounded by a mob of angry pride marchers. However, in that case the police took the side of the pride participants, telling the street preacher, "You're promoting hate." The police ultimately compelled David Lynn and his team from Christ’s Forgiveness Ministries to leave the area and stop preaching.

The Seattle attack is another example in an increasing string of violence by homosexual activists.  

Last August, it was only thanks to the heroic actions of a security guard at the Family Research Council that a gay activist intent on killing employees at the organization was stopped in his deadly assault. 

This past January a group of Brazilian Catholics who gathered to march through the streets of Curitiba in the state of Parana to protest abortion and homosexual ideology were harassed, spat upon, and physically assaulted by a mob.

In April the head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard, remained calmly seated with eyes closed in prayer as four topless lesbian activists attacked him with shouts and curses and doused him with water. 

Last April, a group calling itself “Angry Queers” claimed responsibility for throwing baseball-sized rocks through nine church windows in Portland’s Mars Hill Church, known for its traditional marriage stance.

sounds like the guy they arrested is a real peach: 

UPDATE: Jason Queree, the man suspected of punching the protester multiple times, has been arrested 29 times since 1995. He has been convicted or otherwise found against for nine felonies, including forgery, stolen property, unlawful firearm possession and theft, and 12 misdemeanors, including driving with a suspended license, vehicle prowl, domestic violence, assault, DUI and criminal trespass.

Viciously beat?!?!

Seems some people need to learn the meaning of words.

Those punks that were in his face make me sick.

I don't like people like that and I don't care where they are, who they are or otherwise.

There are always people like that dude, that lovely female with a baby with her and the others.  

On both sides of the fence.

Viciously beat.  Nice try.  Major fail.

I am sure you must mean the sisters of perpetual indulgence.


See who's receiving Communion in San Francisco

'I doubt even Judas would have done such a perverse thing'

  • Text smaller
  • Text bigger

A Catholic parish in San Francisco has been classified alongside graphic San Francisco sex-fest sponsor Miller Brewing after officials served Communion to members of the ultra anti-Catholic “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” whose mockery of Christianity is legend in the city.

The service was captured on video by a member of the Catholic group St. Joseph’s Men Society, and it has been made available Catholic blogsite Quamdiu Domine.



Two “sisters” at Holy Redeemer church in San Franscico

“I doubt that even Judas would have done such a perverse thing as this,” said Anthony Gonzales, president of the men’s organization. “Not only did [Archbishop George] Niederauer sell out our Lord for human respect but deliberately crucified Him again within the very sanctuary of the church that he was consecrated to protect. If Rome does not remove him immediately from his position and excommunicate him for this evil, then Rome itself becomes complicit in the crime. Enough is enough!”

The archbishop, in an diocese newspaper editorial scheduled for publication next week, apologizes for serving the two “Sisters,” explaining he didn’t recognize who they were.



‘Sisters’ receiving Communion

He described the Oct. 7 event has routine. “The congregation was devout and the liturgy was celebrated with reverence. I noticed no demonstration, no protest, no disruption of the Eucharist,” he writes for the coming explanation.

“At Communion time, toward the end of the line, two strangely dressed persons came to receive Communion. As I recall one of them wore a large flowered hat or garland. I did not recognize either of them as wearing mock religious garb,” he said.

“Afterward it was made clear to me that these two people were members of the organization ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,’ who have long made a practice of mocking the Catholic Church in general and religious women in particular,” he said.

“Although I had often seen photographs of members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, I had never encountered them in person until October 7th. I did not recognize who these people were when they approached me. After the event, I realized that they were members of this particular organization and that giving them Holy Communion had been a mistake. I apologize to the Catholics of the Archdiocese of San Francisco and to Catholics at large for doing so,” he said.

“The manner of dress and public comportment of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is deeply offensive to women religious and to the witness of holiness and Christian service that women religious have offered to the Church and to the world for centuries. The citizens of San Francisco have ample reason to be grateful to women religious for their unfailing support of those most in need, and to be deeply offended when that service is belittled so outrageously and offensively.

“Someone who dresses in a mock religious habit to attend Mass does so to make a point. If people dress in a manner clearly intended to mock what we hold sacred, they place themselves in an objective situation in which it is not appropriate for them to receive Holy Communion, much less for a minister of the Church to give the Sacrament to them.

“Therefore I conclude that the presence of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at the Mass on October 7th was intended as a provocative gesture. In that moment I failed to recognize it as such, and for that, as I have said, I must apologize,” he writes.

The service was held just days after downtown San Francisco was flooded with open nudity, public acts of sex and other activities related to the Folsom Street homosexual sex fair.

Catholics earlier reacted to the event itself by calling for a boycott of the Miller Brewing Co. after the beer giant failed to have its logo removed from a “gay”-festival promo mocking the iconic Last Supper scene of Jesus Christ and his disciples.

Now a number of groups, including Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, have been publicizing the stunt.

“Just when you thought it couldn’t get any wackier: on Sunday, just a week after the depraved, nudity-filled ‘Folsom Street Fair’ in San Francisco, the city’s Archbishop, George Niederauer, has been photographed giving Communion to two Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in their mock ‘nun’ outfits,” said a statement from AFTAH.

AFTAH chief Peter LaBarbera explained that the “Sisters” are men who dress up in outlandish outfits and white make-up to mock Catholic nuns. They adopt sexualized names including “Sister Porn Again” and their motto is “Go forth and sin some more.”

LaBarbera reported at this year’s event one, “novice” was “Sister Bambi Dextrous” who wore a T-shirt with the slogan “Bottom for Jesus” referring to the act of homosexual sodomy.

The church, Most Holy Redeemer, already had a history of pushing homosexual activism in violation of Roman Catholic Church teachings, including granting permission to the “Sisters” to hold “Revival Bingo” games there where porn DVDs and sex toys were used as prizes.

Allyson Smith, an analyst for Americans for Truth, noted that the Catholic Church believes communion involves the actual “body and blood of Jesus Christ” and such participation by the “twisted ‘sisters’” is offensive to many.

Her opinions were echoed abundantly on a response section to the California Catholic News story about the situation:

  • May God have mercy on his soul,” wrote “semperficatholic.”
  • “We need to bulldoze to the ground every Catholic Church in S.F. and send these left handed Catholics to the Masonic lodge where they truly belong. Let Satan put up with them,” added “pablo.”
  • Mark was succinct: “Blasphemy.”
  • “You could say the Archbishop has a ‘wide stance’ toward perversion-enthusiasts in the church,” added “Grandma Hat.”
  • Said “Andrew,” “What an abomination! It just boggles my mind and even my whole being that the Archbishop actually participates in this total desecration of the Holy Eucharist. He who should be defending the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ is a willful conduit to this abomination. It’s very terrible and very sad – there’s no words to describe it. All good and holy people of San Francisco and everywhere, please say a prayer of reparation and spent a holy hour with the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament today. As Fr. John Corapi ha[s] said a million times, SOMEBODY WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS IN HELL SOMEDAY!!!!!”

It was the Catholic League that earlier protested Miller’s involvement in the event, and posted online under a parental warning about graphic content photographs of the homosexual event on public streets.

The Folsom Street Fair broke into the headlines with its promotional image mocking the Last Supper scene of Jesus Christ and his disciples, replacing the biblical leaders with leather-adorned men and the bread and wine with sex toys.

The Catholic League had called a boycott of the Miller Brewing Co. after the beer giant failed to have its logo removed from the event.

But officials say the brewer declined, and so it was distributing photographs of the event to allow leaders, residents and workers in the company’s hometown see the results of the company’s sponsorship.

“We have been informed by Miller Brewing that it is not prepared at this time to offer assurances that it will never again sponsor an anti-Christian event; it merely says that it is conducting an audit of its marketing policies. Accordingly, our response to Miller’s balk is as follows,” Donohue said.

“We are mailing pictures of the anti-Christian and sadomasochistic Folsom Street Fair that Miller so proudly sponsors to Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan and to the 211 Catholic parishes in the archdiocese. We want all Catholics in Milwaukee to know exactly what Miller stands for,” he said.

He later announced that in addition to all Catholic parishes in the Milwaukee area, all Protestant ministers also would be getting information about the event.

“Certainly the people of Milwaukee will be disgusted to see this,” said Kiera McCaffrey, director of communications for the League. “That’s why we feel it’s important people actually see what’s going on.”

Well, maybe the preacher should've kept his bullshit to himself at a GAY PRIDE event. Was violence the answer? No. It never is. But, that doesn't excuse how the preacher instigated shit.


So the next time the Clown nuns show up at a Mass, or one of the many organizations that protest the Vatican, you'll point out how they are in the wrong?

Violence is never excusable. 

That being said, what do you expect people to do when you keep treating them like shit and keep telling them they are sinners and going to hell simply for being who they are? Just sit there and keep taking it? Nope, eventually some are going to push back.

The actions of these men do not represent the LGBTQ community as a whole and it's pure ignorance to believe otherwise.

LOL! Don't put words in my mouth. That's not what I said at all.

I don't shove my POV down anyone's throat. This was a GAY PRIDE parade. Definitely the WRONG forum to preach at people about "salvation."

I don't think you understand how free speech works. You don't get to shove things down people's throats, and then claim "free speech" when you're faced with opposition and when things don't go your way.

Also, there's nothing wrong with gay people. We're awesome! I get the feeling that you don't care for us homosexuals that much.
