I feel sorry for their kids as they are raising them to
hate even bringing them along on their "protests". I only hope the rapture
is soon so they, the children, will be taken out of the hands of these

The Catholic group was walking with other Protestants, united
together against abortion...but these people actually had signs that said,
"God Hates You". huh? They also had signs like the 'walk' signs, but with
images of homosexual sex...and "God Hates Fags". If you try to tell them that
God can 'hate the sin, yet love the sinner', they scream at you. You can't
reason with them, if you read Scripture to them, they scream you
My kids want to work in TV/Movies, they are wanting to get
involved with other Christian/Conservative groups who want to take the reins
in Hollywood to promote/present family/Christ valued entertainment. We went to
San Diego's huge Comic Con this past weekend. It used to be just 'comic book'

of the Bible...and think all Christians feel the way they do. We ARE told to
pray for our enemies, to love others. We can 'hate the sin, yet love the
sinner'. These people do not get that. They are full of hate, which tells you
right there that Christ can not be in their
