When They Revile You, Respond With Cookies

On Wednesday anti-gay protesters hassled the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church.

Signs read:

"Homosex is a Threat to National Security"

"Homosex is Sin! We don't Hate Homos--God Hates Sin"


"Warning Fornicators, Liars, God Haters, Drunks, Thieves, Adulterers, Homosexuals, Judgement"

Members of New Church (R)evolution kneeled and prayed peacefully.

They offered cookies to the anti-gay protesters as a gesture of hospitality and peacemaking.
