The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is the organization named Bash Back. They get the award for the following-

A radical gay rights group is claiming responsibility for a protest Sunday at Mount Hope Church in Delta Township.

Protesters who entered the Creyts Road church along with worshippers surprised the congregation when they stood up during the service, threw fliers at churchgoers and shouted slogans such as "It's OK to be gay," and "Jesus was a homo," according to David Williams, communications director at the church. His father, Dave Williams, is the church's longtime pastor. He was not preaching at the church Sunday.

Another group of protesters demonstrated outside the church at the same time as the indoor protest.


A Lansing group affiliated with a radical gay organization known as Bash Back, formed to protest the Republican and Democratic national conventions earlier this year, put out a call on the Internet on Oct. 7 for activists to come to a "radical queer convergence" in Lansing on Nov. 7-9.

A posting on its MySpace page declared the convergence a "fierce success."
Fire alarm pulled

According to a report on the Bash Back group's news site, protesters inside the church pulled a fire alarm, unfurled a banner from the church balcony, shouted and threw fliers to the worshippers.

I'm sympathetic to many GLBT causes but disrupting a church service isn't going to win this group support from me or anyone else. These drama queens have a right to protest, but there are places that people should respect, whether its a church or the funeral for a fallen soldier. For their outrageous actions last Sunday, I name Bash Back today's Knucklehead of the Day.

Hat tip- Doug at Below the Beltway who writes "Now, generally, they have a right to protest, but I've got to wonder what they think they're accomplishing by acting like jerks and idiots." Bash Back didn't earn any respect but did earn today's award!

"Knucklehead of the day'? ... (Below threshold)

"Knucklehead of the day'? Bullshit! Well I'm not sympatico. The congregation should have kicked their freakin' asses! Those bastards want to get in someone's face, they should learn real quick that there's a price to pay. Then and only then will they knock this shit off!

What ever cause a group tries to promote and no matter how much it maybe be just and right..they lose my support once they become violent or pull this kind of stuff.

By the way, it been noted that many black people vote to ban gay marriage....so why are not these protestors protesting areas like where the crips and blood gangs hang out..or other unsafe black neighborhoods??????

Ha, this is ridiculous. A <... (Below threshold)

Ha, this is ridiculous. A fierce success! Jesus was a homo!

Perpetuate stereotypes of stupid uber-fags much, fellas? (I cleared that remark with a gay friend, he said it's cool.)

Mag:Yeah, the though... (Below threshold)

Yeah, the thought occurred to me that over 70% of blacks voted for Prop 8, yet none of the 'protests' have been held in front of "black churches". Wonder why? Might it be the fear of getting their asses kicked?

Gee! they're Jerks and Idio... (Below threshold)
C. Bensing:

Gee! they're Jerks and Idiots. How benign of you.
I saw pictures of these people they had they're faces and heads covered just like the terrorists that beheaded captives in Iraq. They all posed together and had their picture taken. Isn't that special.They were throwing around condoms and getting in the face of parishioners. Were there children in the church service? The entire description I saw of their actions was meant to terrorize innocent people inside their church. Your sympathetic poo, poo attitude is a disgrace. You do not go into a church to protest and you do not act to frighten innocent people. There were enough of them to make it even more frightening. Anything short of jail time is to lenient as far as I'm concerned and your comments of gee whiz what a terrible thing, are disgraceful.If you can't get a realistic perspective on what happened maybe you should avoid letting people know how you feel. I'd pick you as the knucklehead of the week.

God willing, these clowns w... (Below threshold)

God willing, these clowns will pull a stunt like this in the wrong church one day. Maybe a couple of folks trying out their new shoulder holsters under their sport coats. Well, I can dream can't I?

Woah Nelly. Just in case #6... (Below threshold)

Woah Nelly. Just in case #6 requires clarification, OLDPUPPYMAX thinks that being obnoxious, disruptive a-holes in a church is grounds for murder, and/or he dreams about shooting gay people who are stupid.
