Homosexual Activists Invade Pro-Family Group Headquarters En Route to White House
By Terry Vanderheyden
WASHINGTON, November 7, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Homosexual activists chained themselves to a display in the foyer of the Family Research Council (FRC) headquarters in the US capitol today in an attempt to disrupt work there.
A FRC employee said that about 12 homosexual activists, some wearing “ACT UP” t-shirts - an acronym for AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power - followed a single member who gained admittance through a keyed security door by posing to be there for an interview. Once the door was opened, the dozen forced their way in, strewing condoms and fliers, chanting “condoms work, abstinence kills.” The group also stuffed pamphlets into books in the main-floor FRC library.
The group then chained themselves to a display, while FRC employees waited for police to escort them away. Meanwhile, another 30-40 homosexual activists waved placards and protested outside the building. The FRC employee said the group had planned a similar demonstration for the White House for later that day.
The activist group brought a TV crew with them, as well as legal aid to ensure police arrests were carried out lawfully. In the end, the entireÂperformance lasted two hours.
A similar effort was made by homosexual activists to disrupt a “Love Won Out” conference in Boston Wednesday, as reported by LifeSiteNews.com (https://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2005/nov/05110204.html), where protesters gathered outside a church, chanting slogans and frightening attendees. Using PA systems, protesters shouted obscenities and yelled “Shut it down! Shut it down!” for almost 45 minutes.
“This gang of individuals who make ‘tolerance’ their motto have no tolerance for the law, the democratic process or anyone who disagrees with them,” said Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council. “This small group of activists cannot silence those who proclaim the undeniable reality that abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage is the only formula for ‘safe sex.’”
“They can attempt to stop our work today but they cannot stop the people of faith from involving themselves in the political process,” Perkins added.
ACT UP is an activist homosexual group that maintains that condoms are the only effective way to curb HIV/AIDS, despite mounting evidence suggesting that condoms in fact promote the spread of the disease.
