Christian Extremist Attempt To Drive Gay Couples Out Of Neighborhood In Toronto – Neighbors Come To The Resue (Video)

Christian extremist from Highfield Road Gospel Hall have been terrorizing the Leslieville neighborhood at Dundas and Greenwood Streets in Toronto for the past 7 years by specifically targeting and decending upon the neighborhood to go door to door and loudly prreach their “gospel of hate” in attempts to terrorize and drive Lesbian and Gay couples out of the neighborhood/ 

The awesome Dan Savage has reported on this via the Torontoist::

The commissary at Highfield Road Gospel Hall must have been fresh out of mind-your-own-business last night, because nine of God’s hand-picked mouthpieces allegedly found themselves outside of the home of a Leslieville gay couple, praying for the men’s unsolicited salvation. Residents of the Dundas and Greenwood area stepped up in support of the unidentified targets, asking the holy rollers to move on and leave the neighbourhood in peace. “We have an authority to preach the gospel,” claims one worshiper in a video clip captured by nearby resident Geoffrey Skelding. “We’ve been doing this seven years.” Though the church members didn’t explicitly admit that they had chosen that particular house because it housed a gay couple, Skelding says that many street residents are convinced that’s the reason, especially based on the church group’s history of door-to-door evangelism on the street. “Talking with my neighbours, I learned that a lesbian couple left the area because of this group,” Skelding told Torontoist. “They do come to the area and knock on doors and tell people they are sinners.”

Fed up with this Christian terrorism the neighborhood stood up and fough back confronting the holyrollers.  “You don’t know what love means,” admonishes a bystander in the video, after one of the church members vows to return “in the will of God.”
