From the article:

"“Let them vote ‘no’ to this ordinance, and ‘yes’ to the reign of the kingdom of God,” Pastor Charles Flowers said at the rally."


"A San Antonio pastor and an employee of his Christian boot camp were arrested Friday on aggravated assault charges, accused of dragging a girl behind a van after she failed to keep up during a running exercise.

"Investigators with the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office arrested Charles E. Flowers, 46, shortly before noon at the Faith Outreach Center in northwest San Antonio, said Brad E. Bailey, a spokesman for the Schertz Police Department.

"Bailey said boot camp trainer Stephanie Bassitt, 20, was later arrested without incident at her home in Kirby."

As much as I disagree with those on the right who diminish the rights of GLBTs, if a wounded Marine veteran, or any veteran, wounded or not, made a speech against us, I would not boo him or her. Regardless of politics we owe them enough respect to listen to their opinion, whether we agree with them or not.

How charmingly patriotic of the protesters.

Remember the days when the right-wing were the ones waving the flag?
