Lloyd Roseland of Maple Grove, Minnesota has been arrested for vandalizing the gay-friendly Pilgrims United Church of Christ four times since May.
Lloyd is wheelchair bound.
Around June 2, eggs had been thrown at the building, and the words “Church of Sodom” and “Church of Gomorrah Lev 18:2″ were written on each side of the entrance to the church in black marker. The church pastor said the bible verses were meant to be against homosexuals.
Another bible verse was written on the church on June 8, and on June 30, “Gay Pride? No! Shameful Sodomites! Jude 7. Love cult! Matt 7:21-23″ was scrawled in black crayon on each side of the doorway. Handcuffs also locked the entry way door, and egg yolk was dripping on the entry way glass and sidewalk.
On July 26, authorities placed a camera on the outside of the church, and on July 28, the establishment was egged and vandalized again.
After examining videotape, police questioned Roseland, who is wheelchair-bound, about the incidents. Roseland confessed to the crimes. The station says he told police that “any church that recognizes gays can be married in the eyes of God is not a church but a cult” and that’s why he did it.
Perhaps Llyod should have read a bit further into the book of Leviticus about who is really welcome or not in a church if he wants to be so literal.
“For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous.”
Rolling, rolling, rolling. Keep that faux-christian hate rolling….. RAWHIDE!
