A gay man at Chicago’s gay pride hugging a group of Christian men and women who had protests of apologies for the hatred the church and religious groups everywhere had for the LGBT community.
“I spent the day at Chicago’s Pride Parade. Some friends and I, with The Marin Foundation, wore shirts with ‘I’m Sorry’ written on it. We had signs that said, ‘I’m sorry that Christians judge you,’ ‘I’m sorry the way churches have treated you,’ ‘I used to be a bible-banging homophobe, sorry.’ We wanted to be an alternative Christian voice from the protestors that were there speaking hate into megaphones.”
Nathan, one of the Christian men present blogged about it here.
CHICAGO PRIDE 2010 - the WBC?
Apparently the WBC (Westboro Baptist Church) AKA the ‘God Hates Fags’ Church were at the CHICAGO PRIDE PARADE 2010? However, I never saw them.
Someone told me that they got pretty aggressive around Belmont and Clark?
Did anyone else who went come into contact with this hate group?
