Humorous headline. I support all protesters right to protest, even morons from Repent America. More entertainment to come with their Fall protest. What these gay-hating nitwits are referring to follows:

I support their right to protest as well, they just make themselves appear as ignorant morons. I just kind of find it suspect that they are so interested in what is going on in other people's bedrooms.

WWJD...start there...

I do not think that he would be as arrogantly flamboyantly judgmental although that is not to suggest that he would necessarily approve of such behavior.

Hey Satan since you are quoting the Bible sections of this website, how about the Quran sections? You are not a very fair and balanced dude are you? Why do you pick on the Christian Jesus and not the Muslim Mohammed...?

Violence is bad. Confronting hate with educated reason (as the KU students are capable of) is good.

Geeez if ONLY these weirdos from "Repent America" did something worth while - liek Protest the Illegal WAR? Protest Poverty? Hunger in America? Lack of Medical care for 45+ million Americans? Nah, they're too busy worrying about what consenting adults do in the privacy of thier own lives. Repent America should team up with "The God Hates Fags" grp in Kansas...ahh what a circus that would be!

Jesus was not just a "love one another" proclaimer. He did speak out against behaviors that he disapproved of and the possible consequences.

This group was shouting condemnation and hate speech, I was there, I don't consider that type of behavior "preaching". They showed up spontaneously right after the Va. tech tragedy. Allowing groups to just show up without any reasonable advance notice puts the campus community at risk. In my opinion, the resemblence between this group's message and Christianity is purely coincidental.

Wasn't there the proverb of 'pull the log out of your own eye first before you pick the splinter out of your neighbors'?

That should also apply to these message boards. Is any of this as much hate filled speech as the original speech? "Stone people" for speaking their minds? Do you call on stoning Al Sharpton, Rosie O'Donnell or Louis Farakhan?

Sexual orientation isn't an illness. Where did you get the idea it was? Just saying something that is repudiated by every mainstream medical association doesn't make it true.

Keep fighting for your rights homosexuals-you will prevail. Belief in a book that says the earth is flat is a complete delusion.

Reading through these comments it's obvious that the pro-homosexual commentators are the bigoted and hateful ones! Hypocrites! How can you justify such violent and hateful statements???

Yes, it will be interesting next fall to listen to Kutztown students try to rebut the research done by Dr. Judith Reisman, Dr. Paul Cameron and others that clearly shows that not only is there NO biological basis for homosexuality but that homosexuals are much more likely to molest children, commit murder, have multiple partners, purposely spread STD's, and commit other crimes far above the national average. Most people who claim to be homosexual have been either sexually molested by an adult when they were young and/or were from a dysfunctional family unit.

Homosexuals CAN change and they are truly in need of help to escape the destructive lifestyle that has enslaved them and is holding them as prisoners. I understand that at least one of the members on the Repent America ministry team at Kutztown that day was a FORMER homosexual. How closed minded and intolerant Kutztown students are that they couldn't tolerate a divergent opinion but drove the ex-homosexual and the others off campus!

I have seen video footage of the uproar and clearly it was the students who were vulgar, obscene, intolerant, unaccepting, and physically threatening.

Jesus said NOTHING about homosexuality, and the Bible talks about killing a child that talks back to their parental units!

It is the Buffet-style Christianity today. Pick and choose what you want to hate people for. Where is the outrage for divorce? For extramerital affairs? Where are the protests against drug abuse or murder? Simple, those issues are not news worthy any more. But mention gays and a firsestorm instantly appears.

For the record, I am a Christian and a gay man in an 18 year relationship
