Ohio judge bans protest in front of Columbus church

Published: Wed, August 28, 2013 @ 7:26 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio judge has ruled that members of a national conservative Christian group cannot protest in the land in front of one of Ohio’s largest churches.

Judge Charles Schneider of Franklin County Common Pleas Court today wrote that Minutemen United protesters were trespassing when they had their demonstrations in front of Vineyard Columbus.

The protesting group had argued that it was expressing its message within the public right of way. But Judge Schneider ruled that the public’s right of way ends at the edge of the road along the church, which has no curb or sidewalk.

Vineyard is an orthodox, evangelical church. Members of Minutemen United have said they’re targeting Vineyard because it’s been too passive when it comes to fighting “the culture war” against abortion, homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

The Vineyard Columbus is right in step with the times. What would life be if you couldn't kill unborn babies, have gay scout leaders, camp out with gay scouts and marry someone with the same sexual equipment? Anything less is hateful and oppressive. Soon the mere mention of the word heterosexual will be banned.

What do you care what other people do if it doesn't hurt you? You know it doesn't hurt you; you (and others like you) are just too insecure and ignorant to admit that anyone who doesn't live *exactly* like you do is wrong.

Acknowleding the humanity of other people and letting them live their lives does not oppress you.

Way to be hateful and stupid. Thank goodness idiots like you are a dying breed.

A doctor takes an oath to do no harm to his patients. When he does an abortion the baby is killed. A homosexual recruits young boys for his perverted pleasure and the boy is scarred for life. A homosexual couple wants their union blessed by heterosexual society which they seek to undermine for their own pleasures. Homosexuals gravitate to where the boys are without any regard to their impact on the community. Their war against society continues while they want rewards from that same society. We still have laws with teeth and Jerry Sandusky still remains in prison along with many others who have tainted the lives of the young.
