Two Christian men brutally beaten at gay festival

Have we reached the point in America where it’s not safe to identify yourself as a Christian?

Two street preachers were punched and kicked last weekend by a crowd at the gay pride festival “Pridefest” at the Seattle Space Needle, according to Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes.

The preachers were holding signs reading “Repent or Else” and “Jesus Saves From Sin.” As shown in the video, a crowd started verbally assaulting the men, with things quickly escalating as one was knocked to the ground and punched and kicked. The other was sucker-punched from behind.

Local television station KOMO reported that some of the attackers belonged to a gay rights organization called NOH8.

Police arrested two suspects and we can only hope that indecent exposure is included among the charges leveled against the one who removed his shirt.

Just the latest example of those who demand tolerance exercising none toward any that disagree with their radical ideology.

UPDATE – As reported by KOMO, the man seen in the video punching the preacher multiple times, Jason Queree, has been arrested 29 times since 1995.

He has been convicted or otherwise found against for nine felonies, including forgery, stolen property, unlawful firearm possession and theft, and another twelve misdemeanors, including driving on a suspended license, vehicle prowl, domestic violence, assault, DUI and criminal trespass.

He was booked on a misdemeanor assault charge, sent to King County Jail June 30, and released the same day (bail was set at $1,000), as reported by The Blaze.
