A right-wing hate group writes about the day from the inside...

"Boston police barricaded church doors and would not allow people in church to leave, as homosexual activist demonstrators block street, scream, intimidate, and threaten. Sound truck blaring "Shut it down" was parked in front of church (truck's loudspeakers visible just to left of 'Homophobia Kills' sign). Police made no effort to disperse crowd or stop sound truck, even though city has confirmed that they had no permit. The police department told us later that no arrests were made......

The demonstrators definitely affected the conference. As one attendee related:

"Joe Dallas (LoveWonOut speaker, former gay activist, former head of Exodus Intl) wrapped up the day w a statement about wanting the demonstrators to have their freedom of speech about their feelings and beliefs. But he said ONE THING FRIGHTENED HIM, & that was when they started yelling SHUT IT DOWN! He did send out the alarm that our freedom of speech and religion are seriously at risk. He recounted stories of ministers shut down in other countries..." - From the Article Hate Alliance

Yea you Gays are some really tough people. Scare a bunch of older Christian people. Wow you Gays are so macho. Taha might wor scare a bunch of Christian up there in Boston. Do me a favor try doing that in my state of Tennessee. i do not care who you call a Bigot. There is a bunch of rednecks down here who would love for you to try to block a Church entrance like you did in Boston. And the cops down here would not be on your side. Like they were in Gay Boston.

Hey, heterophobes! Keep up that anti-Christian bigotry and the Democrats will keep losing!

By the way, where did your candidate John Kerry stand on the homosexual propaganda machine?
