So now the organized baptists are denying any connection with the concentration camp baptists
.
Ummmm Hmmm
.
B*** S***
.
Let it be known that the organized baptists are 1/4 financial supporters of Exodus International; the perverts that run 250 church-owned prisons across America where they lock up and torture gay people for sex and profit

Sounds like a backwards area of the U.S. they live in. I hope the protesters can bring some change and intelligence to the area.

big ot, then why are you on this site? sounds like you're just another bully taking out your personal frustrations. Please stay in the closet, that's how YOU can best contribute to society - it will probably be the first time you've contributed to anything so may feel uncomfortable.
Bring your bible.

The county should have stood by their law instead of allowing themselves to be bullied into changing the regs just to appease a bunch of loudmouth idiots that have nothing better to do than wave signs at a loudmouth idiot preacher. This will accomplish nothing except that now my tax money will be used to put extra deputies on the job to monitor the protest.

They had to back down because their own lawyers after conferring with the ACLU found out that their law violated the US Constitution. Basically they just saved a ton of your tax money by avoiding court. You're welcome.

There is nothing unconstitutional about requiring someone to apply in advance to use government facilities.

Apparently you did not look over the previous rules that the county had. They required any group to be organized and if they are organized they must carry insurance and have been organized for at least one years time. Old school anti civil rights/Jim Crowe style rules at their best that had been on the books for decades. Also the county lawyers and the ACLU disagree with you on that as well. If the group does nothing else they managed to change Catawba's assembly laws and no telling where it will go from here. The civil rights movement started a lot smaller in NC to be exact.

Oh so they have to be an established group and have insurance to pay for any damage/injuries that may occur... Yeah thats really unconstitutional! And I cant believe that the ACLU would disagree with anything! Thats absurd!

In case you couldnt tell, that was sarcasm at its finest. And I'd like to see a list of those county leaders that disagree so I know who to vote against in the election! I'll have to look that up. Thanks

Sorry to have missed that. Can you show evidence that the one year existence was not to protect the county from some fly-by-night operations ruining the county grounds?

And if this in truly a secular nation, then please get rid of all the money in your wallet and bank accounts cause it says In God We Trust on it!

I personally could care less if the gays or straights or zombies or whoever want to protest. That preacher deserves to know what an idiot he is for saying what he said. But I wouldnt expect the county to change a regulation that had been there for years just so i could go protest all afternoon which would do nothing to change the preachers mind...

The large group of protestors changing the law are not the gays
.
Its the real Christians that got the law changed so they can protest the activities of the concentration camp christians

Your tax money is used to finance the property taxes on the concentration camp church building. You pay their property taxes so they have more money left over to build electric fences 150 miles long to barbeque gay people
.
When the church's fence is finished; you'll be paying the taxes on that too

Please point out where I said they gays were the ones changing the laws... However it is an anti-gay sermon they are protesting.

Theres lots of stuff I have to pay taxes for that I dont like. Examples include every piece of legislation that Obummer has imposed on the country, spending billions of dollars to help foreign nations that would rather kill Americans than live peacefully with us, and giving handouts to millions of people in out country that dont deserve it! Not saying some dont deserve it, but there are lots that dont. You gonna protest all that too for us?
