Golf Ball With Anti-Gay Slur Smashes SUV Window During MN Gay Pastor Church Service – VIDEO

At Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church in St. Paul, MN last Sunday a golf ball with an anti-gay slur and an obscene drawing in destroyed the windows of an attendee’s  SUV  during a church service for an openly gay pastor.

Pioneer Press reports:

“We went from this wonderful celebration, where  we were faithful in our beliefs and faithful in our witness, and then we got  this disappointing, disturbing, shocking news that someone was randomly  targeted,” Wilcox said on Sunday.

Handwritten with red ink on the golf  ball was an anti-gay message and an obscene picture, said Emily Eastwood,  executive director of ReconcilingWorks. The organization “works for the full  participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people” in church  and society, according to a press statement, and Hill is the organization’s new  regional director for Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota…

…Though the church is across from the Phalen  Park golf course, the golf ball found in the SUV is unlikely to have  accidentally hit the window, based on the angle it would have had to travel and  the message it contained, Wilcox said.

Shameful
