Anti-Gay Preacher Charges 74-Year Old Woman With Assault For "Kiss".

Salisbury, North Carolina has made the news...and not in a good way. In a show of complete ridiculousness, an anti-gay preacher has filed assault charges against 74-year old Joan Parker. The Associated Press tells us that, 
"A Bible-waving preacher protesting at a gay pride event was kissed on the cheek by a female gay rights supporter - a 74-year-old woman who was charged with simple assault, with the preacher's blessing.
Joan Parker admits she kissed a preacher on the cheek at the Saturday event in Salisbury, N.C., proclaimed by the mayor as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Day.
"He was just waving his arms and has a Bible in one hand, up and down, and screaming at the top of his lungs, 'sodomites' and 'you're going to hell,'" Parker said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. "I thought he needed a hug. So I gave him a hug."
At some point, the preacher turned to yell at a man with a camera. Also at some point, she kissed him. On the cheek, she says, not on the mouth.
He described the encounter this way: "She ran her arms all the way around me and pulled me toward her." As he held his Bible in one hand, he stuck both arms in the air and turned toward a police officer standing nearby who witnessed the exchange, he said."
     Seriously? A 74-year old woman is being charged with assault because of a stupid kiss and hug. According to the preacher - James Edward Belcher - this woman showing him such affection is the M.O. of the gay movement, for this kiss and hug "was just one of many attempts to silence the preaching to those in need of salvation who practice a death style that they call a lifestyle."

      When will these so called "Christians" learn that their evangelism techniques of telling people that they are "sodomites" and "going to hell" don't work, and actually turn people away from their religion? Maybe they need to take a cue from Jesus - didn't he hang out with the sinners and prostitutes?
