    Hell yeah. I want to live in aneighborhood just like that! Practice your own silly religion and worship your own fake deity in the privacy of your own home you drating lunatics. This is what religion creates people... right here. If it isn`t violent and deadly, it`s drating stupid and annoying.

    Does a religious group knocking on your door really ruin your evening? A simple no thank you and closing the door is really all that seems necessary.

    "Does a religious group knocking on your door really ruin your evening? A simple no thank you and closing the door is really all that seems necessary."

    And I am sure that if that were actually taken place, then the confrontation never would have happened. But, you see... it didn`t take place. The religious jesus pole smokers wanted to pray loudly in front of houses where their perceived sinners were. Unnacceptable.

    Notice at 0:58 the off-camera neighbor says "we hate...". So who are the haters, eh?

    Girl off camera at end says "We don`t come to your house and tell you how to believe." Oh no? Then why you pushing legalized homosexual marriage so hard? That`s not only telling everyone how they have to believe, but what they have to (by law) put up with.

    By the way, no "kicking" here as the title implies.

    Yes, they do have freedom of speech...but not really. If you harass people knowing that it`s going to cause problems like that, then it`s not protected.

    Like if I went into a trailer park and started exclaiming that Wal-Mart sucks, they would get mad, possibly punch me, and I would have no legal recourse.

    And how do you suppose we got our original freedoms (bill of rights, etc.)? It certainly wasn`t by asking England politely now was it? Nope, it was by an overwhelming majority making their voices be heard and chances are the same will happen with the whole gay thing. (Good so I don`t have to hear about it anymore)

    However, this wasn`t a majority of bible thumpers. This was harrassment under the guise of righteousness... the worst kind. They were wrong and the neighbors absolutely were right.

    Jeff, you can believe being homosexual is wrong all you want, the law wont change that, just like you can believe everyone with black skin is inferior, despite laws making slavery illegal.

    Also, allowing someone to do something is not forcing others to support it. On the other hand, keeping someone from doing something is forcing others to not support it.

    LoL, I had this crazy neighbour, that one time those door to door preachers came around. I have to point out that she was and still fat, and ugly, but she`s super funny. Anyways, when the guys stepped on to the front lawn she screamed "Men!" and then proceed to run out the door in her house coat. I have since to see guys in business suits move as fast as these guys did.

    As to the vid, sweet for the neigbourhood watch, to keep ALL the crazies in check.

    In one sense, praying in the street is not a crime. Especially if they stayed off other people`s property. (Tasteful is questionable)

    On the other hand, if you think about it, prayer can be done anywhere with the same effects. Jesus even states to NOT pray "on the street corners to be seen by men" (Matt 6:5) Which seems exactly what these people were doing.

    Even as a Christian, I agree with the lady saying "You don`t know what love is". We aren`t all like that.

    Also in Canada same sex marriage is law. As in legal and binding as "regular" marriage.

    Of course there still opposition to it, but it is protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

    If your god whispers into your ear, that you need to go pray in front of someone`s house because of their private life...

    Go seek immediate medical and psychiatric help, because you are hearing effing voices telling you to do things.

    You are nuts and talk to imaginary beings.

    Take religion out of it for a minute. Just forget religion. Look at it like this:

    Group A is living peacefully in the neighborhood. Group B comes into the neighborhood in protest of the lifestyle of group A.

    Sound familiar? Sounds like something the KKK, or Nazis, or any other ethnic cleansing group would do. It is sad to see people still act this way in modern society.

    "Local church chooses to pray in front of same sex couple" I didn`t see any of that - all i see is people getting upset over what is really a little thing - if you don`t like them don`t talk to them. But as a public Neighborhood not private in anyway they can and have rights to say what they want to say you can not bar them out. the best you can do is ask them to leave your property.

    How is it that these people can block up the middle of the road to try and intimidate people from living in their neighborhoods?

    These same people are ready to ban building mosques anywhere in America and ready to stone president for believing in the wrong brand of Christianity.

    But if you dare suggest that the 10 commandments doesn`t belong on a courthouse you`re the bigoted one.

    You just wait, these sicks f***s are coming for the jews and anyone who dares get a divorce next.

    FFFF`n Christians, buncha Jesus freaks that spread nothing but hatred and intolerance.

    Maybe they could build an Islamic Center (Mosque) on the spot. The neighborhood would have been far more tolerant.

    Would they have asked Muslims to leave? or are they just prejudiced against Christians?

    Yeah...Christian ignorance? They blame an entire religion for the attacks of 9/11 and protest a mosque being built. I`m pretty sure not every single person of their faith is a terrorist. Protesting this sure seems like a violation of the first amendment, but what do I know I am like the founding fathers a Deist or better yet agnostic as it would be known today

    every week we get the same kind of group soliciting their religion... except here in southern california, it seems God only wants spanish speaking worshipers. At least, the soliciters only want to "spread God`s love" to spanish speakers. They won`t tell me what it`s about which is okay by me.

    Look you ignorant screwballs, just because we have the freedom of speech doesn`t mean you can just take your filthy mouth anywhere and say anything with it and expect others to just respect it when you piss people off. If one person has a freedom to speak, the other has an equal right not to friggin hear it. These idiots were in their neighborhood, and being that the neighbors can`t pick their houses up and leave, nor should they if they could... guess who looses? Yup, you guessed it... the religious zealots who came of their own free will to disturb what otherwise was a peaceful neighborhood.

    Oh, and not all of us differentiate Christians from Muslims. Religion is a disease of the mind and all forms of it are just as bad as the other. Religion in all it`s various forms is probably the biggest threat to mankind as far as I am concerned.

    I don`t know what kind of "rights" these religious non-nice individuals think they have. Freedom of religion doesn`t extent into the right to harass other people, and malicious intent is demonstrated clearly in this video, so they`ve over-stepped their First Amendment rights. Of course, that harassment case wouldn`t stand up anywhere because people are retarded, but that`s the way it really is.

    Please stop grouping Christians into one group characterized by intolerance and people that are forcing beliefs onto others.
    I, for one, am Christian (or sort of. I agree with things in Christianity but disagree with many things these `Jesus freaks` push, but I consider myself to be a Christian)& I fully support the mosque. I believe they should have religious rights as well, but I mostly support it so much because this is a legal issue, and not a matter of what the religion teaches.
    Not every Christian is against gay marriage. I`m not. Like I said, I consider myself Christian but I disagree with things, too. I`m not sure what that makes me, really.

    & Inter237, I`m not disagreeing with you -in fact I agree with you, basically- but when you said `Christian ignorance`, and then follow it up with, `They blame an entire religion .. blah`, it sort of seems like you just blamed all of Christianity for blaming them..I don`t think you meant it that way but it`s sort of

    Just to clarify..
    with the `mosque` (I didn`t have room for quotation marks. It`s definitely an Islamic community center), I meant that most people are getting riled up over the fact that the terrorists that caused 9/11 said Islam was their religion, and that is why since it is near to ground zero, so many people are against it, blah blah. I like Islam, I do, and I don`t blame Islam for these extremists like some people seem to be doing.. all it is a legal matter, because of the first amendment.. freedom of religion. so I think they should build there.

    Sorry, didn`t want to get labeled as an intolerant Christian.

    here is the video info from youtube, i was really confused before i read it :-P :
    This is a group from a church at the end of my street. Apparently they have been grouping in front of a couple`s house and reading their bible loudly for the past 7 years. They may have also driven another couple from the area as well by doing the same thing. Tonight most of our neighbours came out and were successful in getting them to leave. The people who go to that church don`t even live in our area! Police came by shortly thereafter.

    as it has been said before the majority of Christians are not like this people. I for one am a christian and i do not push my views on anyone. If anyone comes to me with questions i am happy to answer and if i cannot then i will find someone to answer them. HOWEVER Christians like me do not help the trolling cause so we can all look forward to being grouped with these types but funny thing is just like racism agenst the Caucasian population , this is a form of bias that no one cares about because there is too many people crying about things that dont matter and covering up what does matter. I do not support gay marriage but if they want to be as miserable as straight couples let them I dont want to see people i know go to Hell but it is their choice I DONT LIKE IT BUT I WILL RESPECT OTHERS CHOICE so all you anti-God people, i demand the same respect i give you, dont like my choice, too bad its my choice i dont like yours but will respect it

    stop posting these, these people are not religious, they are just bigots. if you have to post stuff like this, put a "poser religious" label on it or something.

    @shappy,

    Actually they`re called "Religious-extremist-nutjobs." or "Bat-f*ck-insane-religious."
    Or really anything along those lines.

    Because, to be perfectly honest, the bible DOES support their behavior..., actually they`re not going far enough, by the OT standards.

    Honestly, I think the whole anti-gay movement started because of immoral and premarital (scandalous) sex but nowadays it shouldn`t be such a big deal.

    But it was neither immoral nor scandalous to the existing culture and religion. In fact, in some cases it was part of the religion. That`s a key point - the origin of the anti-gay thing is religious, at least in all the areas affected by the Abrahamic religions. It was part and parcel of Judaism taking power and it continued into the power obsession of Judaism`s spinoff religions, Christianity and Islam.

    awesome :)

    I HATE anybody from any religion coming around on my street knocking on my door and bothering me. If I want to joing your f*cking church, I will get my ass down to your f*cking church building to check it out. If you come to my door, I will forever hate you and your religion and I will bring my 90 pound dog out onto the porch with me when I answer the door. He doesn`t like strangers much. F*cking self-righteous idiots.

    These people in the video were well within their rights to ask the church people to leave and they could probably have called the cops if they wouldn`t go willingly. Free speech is all well and good, but when you`re preaching intolerance and hate and being intentionally antagonistic and bothering nice people in their own neighborhood, I think it`s time for you to shut up or be shut up.

    Good on them, they had no right to come into their street and do that. I`m so glad Australia doesn`t have extremists as bad as that. In our gay and lesbian mardi-gra this year we had priests and people of the church march in the parade holding "We are sorry for all the years of discrimination" Banners. It was so nice. :)

    Well those guys have a constitutional right to gather and pray anyplace they like. But it was done in an "in-your-face" way and the majority took offence (naturally) and voiced their desire for them to leave.

    Not unlike the whole mosque thing in NYC.

    They have a legal right to build it. But it is clear that a majority do not want it there. Yes its legal and yes its still rude.

    @vegascartman.

    "So when it`s a mosque at Ground Zero we need to have religious tolerance. When it`s Christians, we need to chase them away. MMMMMMKAY."

    The mosque is fine because it`s behind closed doors; if you don`t want to be preached at, you stay outside the building. The only people who have to listen to the preaching are those who have chosen to do so.

    Whereas this is preaching in a public street, in a pretty harassing way, forcing people to listen to you even when they have not actively chosen to do so.

    There is a difference.

    If I came and stood next to you in the street and started telling you, in graphic detail, all about my sex life, I`m sure you`d ask me to stop, or feel annoyed by having to move away from me (I`d then just follow you and keep talking). Because, hey, it`s my right to free speech, right?

    I really honestly and truly wish, hope, and dream that people like you who may be a silent majority were a vocal majority. This isn`t a criticism, please don`t take it as such, it is a compliment, and a very honest and true one.

    I don`t follow the same Shepherd as you do, but I do follow the same philosophy of the mutual respect of one`s right to follow ones own path. Well thought out, well written, and even if I don`t agree with the "going to hell" part, damn good advice for all.

    So when it`s a mosque at Ground Zero we need to have religious tolerance. When it`s Christians, we need to chase them away. MMMMMMKAY.
    There is a difference between people gathering to pray inside a mosque or church, and people gathering to pray outside your house. If you don`t think they should have been chased away, can I bring my Muslim friends to your front door and pray towards Mecca that the infidel family inside your house will repent their heathen ways or forever burn?
    Or would you prefer that I took them to a mosque instead?

    Basically what kolchak links tells is that the church goers weren`t specifically targeting the gay couple it just so happened that there were no cars on the street parked in front of the and were non-specific about which sins were being broken. Even the "target" of the pray-in says it`s been blown way out of context and doesn`t believe him or his partner were specifically being targeted as the group has been praying on that street prior to them moving to that address.

Like go volunteer at homeless shelters, or hospitals. That`s helping people who need it and it`s not hateful.

    I`m a liberal and I don`t want a "Victory Mosque" on Ground Zero - liberals aren`t real keen on all this psychotic religious bullsh*t, in case you hadn`t noticed. It`s you conservatives that want to teach fairytales in place of evolution, stop same-sex marriage, stop stem-cell research, and hold a gun to everybody`s head and make them pray to Jesus.

    Praying is intended to be one of the most intimate things a believer can do. It also should be private.
    Instead, people use it to attract attention to themselves and judge others in the process.
    If you truly believe in the word of God, understand it isn`t your job to condemn anyone.

    Noooooo....its aimed at the people who feel that their religeon is the ONLY religeon and disrespecting others by treating us like they are a phone company. "Pick me!!, No Pick me!!" Its annoying, its intrusive.

    I will say this, for all the hatemongering that Satanists are believed to have, you dont see Satanists dogging people in public, or hating gay rights, or saying that physical defects is a sin just for having them. "fear GOD!!! oh and avoid Satan"

    Real nice....I think Ill stick with what I can see and feel, the 4 elements +1 still trying to get into the list, plasma....I may not have proof God exsists, but i can feel air, see the water and sky, and touch the earth. Can you say that?

    I call BS. These groups routinely "just happen" to be out front of gay people`s homes.

    The gay couple in question think it`s because there`s a fire hydrant outside their home. As there`s a fire hydrant, no car is ever parked there. Which makes the claim it wasn`t targetted plausible - a place where you know there will not be a parked car is a reasonable place to meet.

    So everyone who`s actually involved thinks that it`s coincidence. People who aren`t involved might think it`s BS...but how would they know?

    Even the person who made the video clip admitted that he didn`t hear them preaching anything about any homosexuals, let alone specifically targetting the two people who live in the house next to the fire hydrant.

    Rubbish. Faith, especially when combined with power, has a long, long history of working exactly like that. Granted, it`s more often been a sword, a spear, a torture chamber, but that`s mainly because guns are much newer than religion.

    That BS is this? It`s hypocrisy to stand up to bullies who harass a couple as well as bullies who want to infringe on peoples property rights? And how is this a partisan argument? Only liberals care that it`s well within those peoples rights to build an Islamic community center and that the entire issue is an attempt to demonize a religion? Only liberals want to protect their neighbors from harassment?

    You do realize that there are many republicans in favor of the community center.

    I`m not very liberal but, I`m fairly certain the people were guilty of both loitering and harassment.
    The people building the mosque are on their own property. There shouldn`t be anything said about it as long as they aren`t making enough noise to bother anyone.
