Sam Fulcher sends word this afternoon that he’s organizing an LGBT protest outside First Baptist Dallas this Sunday. The protest is being planned in response to the above sign, which indicates that three sermons are scheduled for Sunday on “Why Gay is Not O.K.” Fulcher said he first noticed the sign when he was driving home from an Election Night party, of all things.
“I found it ironic and sad that on a night of such history and hope I was greeted with a sign stating ‘Gay is Not O.K.’ As one barrier is being shattered homophobia is alive and well and still accepted enough to be on the side of a building. The recent passing of bans on gay marriage in many of our states make this point even more obvious.”
In case you’re wondering, below is Matthew 19:3-6, which doesn’t appear to say anything about why “Gay is Not O.K.” Fulcher said the protesters will gather beginning at 10 a.m. at 1707 San Jacinto. For more information about the protest, e-mail Fulcher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?
4. And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6. Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
UPDATE: Another protest is planned this Saturday, Nov. 15, at Dallas City Hall. Go here for details.
