Report: gay activists attack Christian demonstrators in Germany

Catholic World News - March 28, 2014

Christian parents who were protesting against a new sex education curriculum in Germany were attacked by gay activists, according to the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians, which documents anti-Christian incidents in Europe.

The parents “were spit at, eggs were thrown, and little bags with feces or color,” according to the organization. “Cables of loudspeakers were torn out. Pages were ripped out of the Bible and used to wipe backsides, then formed into a ball and thrown at the parents.”

    Were the 'Gay Activists' wearing rainbow armbands?

    Remember your confirmation vows as we enter the recurring age of challenges to our faith. Know that the fruits of cowardice in the oppressed are increased aggression by the oppressor.
