I can't believe the Supervisors are afraid of these people to have their own words heard, when it's there god given right.

No, I was just curious...and happy to see that it's a fairly diverse crowd. Far more so than you would see at a U2 concert even. Thanks for the pics, Justin.

Your Welcome. I wrote an e-mail to Mark Leno and some of the other city council members about this.

Since we're going to start making offensive statements...

The nemesis of blacks is the KKK.
The nemesis of Jews are neo-Nazis.
The nemesis of homosexuals are Christians.

Now you can see why San Francisco told them to fuck off.

I think you are smart enough to understand what I was saying.

i'm smart enough to know that comparisons, for them to have any meaning, should be between comparable things.

perhaps San Francisco is the Salt Lake City of the Left? or perhaps the Commonwealth of Virginia, the most aggressively anti-gay state in the country where i probably could not even own a house with another male.

Or, how about simply the San Francisco city council.

Sorry I didn't add the explaination earlier.

It's true that conservative Christians consider homosexuality a sin. However, I don't see anything wrong with allowing conservative Christians to have a rally in the city. They're not passing laws, they're just talking. If you are talking about legislation that's another matter. A rally is just a rally.

Of course, but should blacks just ignore the KKK when they have rallies in cities? Protests are necessary to show that hate groups are not welcome.

But hey...no one is stopping them from having a rally. It's a constitutional protection.

Not at all. I would expect a black politician to make similar statements about a KKK rally or a Jewish politician regarding a neo-Nazi really.

If Christians insist on making homosexuals an enemy, then they had better be prepared for the fallout.

Yes, but they were not there to complain about Homosexuality. They were there to bring the youth closer to God. And yes every form of hate group has a right to protest or rally in this country.

"To bring the youth closer to God." And in San Francisco. Read between the lines.

Anyway, I expect them to get a rally permit, whether through official means or through a court ruling. That's not in question for me. However, I'm merely stating that I understand why SF officials are giving them a hard time.
