Ignore them; like all emotionally-needy creatures they're just attention-seeking . If they violate any public nuisance laws just call the police. Since this church won't be paying any taxes, the city (police) will side with the taxpaying citizens, not the freeloading hatemongers violating noise and conduct ordinances.

Oh, and the baseball-cap-and-jeans thing is sooooooo hip. HA!

Money is what will keep the 'church' in business
If the community doesn't support the 'church' financially; the 'church' won't survive; as it has already demonstrated by being vacant for years
Another issue is parking
The church parking lot is less than two residential lots and can hold about 20 cars
Any additional parking will spill out into the streets of the historic residential gay neighborhood; already parked bumper-to-bumper as far as the eye can see
Can you imagine the wrath of an irate Queen who has to walk home for 15 blocks because a snarling fundamentalist douchebag parked in front of his house taking his parking spot?
Dumping $125 million into such a gamble; The leaders of the Mars Hill 'church' obviously have more dollars than they have sense
