About 125 people, turned out for the First Bapist Church protest on Sunday, Nov. 16.
The day before, I attended the Prop 8Â protest at Dallas City Hall, although more protesters turned out on Saturday, Sunday’s protest was more enjoyable and more focused. Mainly because protesters got to interact with folks going to service and leaving. Some parishioners came over to greet the protesters and argue â€” no arguments ever got too heated.
Pastor Jeffress’ sermon was titled, “What To Say To Those Who Are Gay,” which I had hoped would have inspired the Baptists to come out and talk to the protesters — or in fact Jeffress himself.
In fact, it seemed that most parishoners avoided using the front doors as they exited the church.
