69 year old woman's cross destroyed by gays!

United States
November 13, 2008 9:31am CST
Yes, the gay men at this protest tore the cross from this 69 year old woman's hands and trampled it on the ground. Do REAL men do these things? But then they are not real men, are they? Would they have done that to a bouncer two feet taller than they are? No. This is how these gay men show their testosterone, beating up on elderly ladies. Now that makes them feel like reallll men. Are you impressed? Put them where they belong, in a zoo. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,450884,00.html

They weren't beating up on her. She didnt get hurt at all. I dont think that they should get charged with assult because they didnt assualt her at all. I dont think they belong in a zoo. I think that that lady was very cruel in her actions, bringing a cross. She was basically calling them evil. She deeply offended them. How would you feel if someone was calling you evil? And I dont understand your comment "But then they are not real men, are they?" Are you saying that they are not real men because they are gay? Because that's what it sounds like. and it isnt even clear if those men are gay anyway. They could just be straight gay-marriage supporters. This country is supposed to be all about equality, but look at this crap. This country is runned by christians and it is prejudice against all those who have different beliefs.

She was shoved. And what they did was not right. They have the right to protest and I am with them in their cause. She also has the right to counter protest. The OP is probably referring to all gay men as not real men because the OP is a gay hater, and whether this incident had happened or not, he/she holds the belief that gay people are less than human.

Oh. It didnt look like she was shoved, but still that's not "beating up on her". Regardless, she was not right either.

Yeah, I stated in my post that she was not beaten up also. The thing about it is that if I have the right to protest bigoted legislation, another person has the right to counter protest. I cannot take advantage of my rights while denying someone else theirs. That is exactly what this group sought to do. The point needs to be made, however, that this incident is not indicative of all of the gay rights protests. It is, in fact, in the minority. But even if the peaceful protests were displayed in the media, people like the OP would never share them because it would take away from the assertion that all gay men are not real men and animals the belong in the zoo.

I remember reading a report on one of my Christian news about some homosexuals invading a church, but I lost the url and went to look for it, but all I got were sites where homosexuals were being attacked by straight people. At least, someone found a news article that shows that not all homosexuals are the nice people they make out to be. We here about straight people killed, murdering, and torturing homosexuals, but if a homosexual attacks a little old lady, or harrasses a pastor, then the media is silent. Do those who witness these attacks, have to carry cameras around in order to get the news? I would also think that the homosexuals did not get all their rights because they bombarded Congress or their representatives with letters. They had to do something else.

Actually, this article is all over the place and not difficult to find. Furthermore, it has been condemned by gay rights activists all over the country. But you have yet to condemn the murder of gay people. You seem to embrace it. Correct me if I am wrong.

I just love how you take a story about a few stupid people (and I'm sure that old woman said some things to egg them on, because I'm sure she's fudging her side of the story to make herself look better) and turn it into all gay men are bad. All gay men assert themselves by beating up old women. All gay men aren't really men at all. Blah blah blah. You're posts amuse me and irritate me all at the same time because I love how you can't find better things to say to support your cause.

Well, I mean, yeah I guess they are real mean. In till they decided to take a cross from a lady and trample it. I mean that would make them not men in my opinion weather or not they were gay. Society is so messed up sometimes.

She did stick her head in a lions mouth. But that gives them no reason to take something from her in a physical manner.

They did NOT beat her up. And while I don't agree with what they did, I totally understand why they did it. They are PIS$ED and they are tired of sitting nicely on the sidelines and saying, "oh well. Better luck next time." Now, because a few militant gay men grabbed the cross from this old lady and trampled it, it does not mean that all gay men would do this sort of thing. Most would not. So stop generalizing.

No - THESE gay men are animals just as were the bunch of "real" men who shot the woman because she tried to leave their KKK rally. There are animals in EVERY group. The gay men I know would find the behavior of these men appalling, even if they didn't agree with the woman. It's behavior unbecoming ANY human and shouldn't be used to judge the entire group any more than the actions of some Blacks should be used to judge all Blacks or the behavior of a few rednecks to define all whites. It's prejudice to do that, regardless of who the generalization is used against.

She attended what seemed like a peaceful gathering... that is like someone attacking me for being at a anti-war rally if all we are doing is carrying signs...!! No excuse for that behavior whatsoever. I am an American citizen born and raised in the states but i have Palestinian roots... you won't see me going to a pro-Israel rally and throwing a tantrum. She has the right to protest and support whatever she wants. For anyone to say otherwise probably didn't really read the article number one, and number two do not know what a rally is nor perhaps attended one either to know they can be peaceful. Did she call anyone of them any names? Queer? abnormal? did she insult them? Im not saying that it would justify their actions but it would be somewhat understandable that they got offended and reacted negatively. Old lady, or young woman, boy or another man. That is just wrong and certainly giving the gay/lesbian community a bad rep and they certainly aren't aiming for that i think lol... Can you say.. ID-I-OTS??!?

I have no idea if she called them names. However, like you said, what they did was out of line. My husband is an Arab/Muslim. One of the things I like about his culture is that you would not see a bunch of men take a religious symbol out of the hands of a 69 year old woman and smash it. That is unheard of.

heck i would hit my own brother for even throwing a religious symbol on the ground! There is something to be said about people that don't respect religious symbols... just... ugh... don't know what to say really got irritated about this one here lol

Hi yestheypayme2dothis, Why does it matter that these men are gay? All gay men wouldn't do this and lots of straight men would. It is wrong no matter who does it. I have found that in many cases gay men are more compassionate and understanding than others. Blessings.

If they were not gay they would not have done what they what they did. They did it because she was there to speak against the gay agenda. They both had a right to be there. They both had a right to speak. A straight man would not have done what they did in the name of the gay agenda. So a gay man would have had to do that.

Oh, Please! If everyone acts that way nothing is accomplished! Just because one acted out, probably because of frustration, doesn't mean they all would do this. It has been my experience that gays (yes and the male ones) all usually very polite and thoughtful. This does not sound like their behavior at all.

Sadly, a lot of gay men are becoming more militant in their actions after the recent down votes. I am hoping that when the dust settles, they will get back to thinking and not acting out.

Oh my, to each their own. I don't believe that any real harm was done to this woman but they should not have taken the cross and trampled it. I used to hate to see gays but it is just a part of society now and I guess that we have to accept gays and also inter-racial relationships as part of our society. I grew up in the country and this stuff never happened but as I started working in the city, I couldn't believe the stuff that I began to see. People are as that...people. We all have our quirks about us but we also have a special thing about us. I have learned that I will not judge people for being gay or poor for that matter. I think that in the heat of the moment, something went wrong here and it seemed to be portraited as something worse than what it was. I would be mad because my personal belonging was trashed though.

To each his own, I suppose. However, they seem to want special priviledges. What is next? Pedophiles and beastiality acceptance...

Gays demand the respect of us all, and yet there are people who do things like this. Also, some gay people go to church, and therefore believe in god. Not only are they being dis respectful to the lady and her beliefs, but they are also mocking god. They wonder why we don't respect them, and then they do a demonstration like this?

They will never get the respect of decent people until they act like decent people. Some do show respect to others, but those who don't deserve what they get.

Yeah it takes a "real man" to take something from a little old lady like that. The queers are on the news daily wanting to be able to get married, then they do some crap like this. It is too bad some real men weren't around when this happened to beat the hell out of them for doing that to her. I would have...

I watched the video and actually felt frightened by what the men were doing to that poor old lady. Protesting is one thing, assaulting a defenseless woman is another. Sure, they have their rights but don't we all? I think they've gone too far with that. I know they feel pretty strongly about it but nothing can be solved by force.

There really was no reason for the outburst from these men at this gay rights activity. The woman has a right to voice her views and the first amendment does condone freedom of speech and peaceful assembly. These men were not being very peaceful. I do agree that people should have their peaceful say on both sides of this gay rights issue. When attacking a cross comes into play it just doesn't look mature at all.
