One Lonely Protestor – Or If a Bigot Falls In the Woods, Does It Make a Sound?
Quite the turnout in the protesting area set up by New York City police for those anti-gay ne’er do wells who wanted to bring hateful signs to the 800+ jubilant same-sex weddings being performed on Sunday. Just look at the thongs of crowds who showed up to tell us we’re going to hell.
July 24, 2011, Office of the City Clerk, 141 Worth Street, Manhattan. A huge crowd cheered the several hundred couples who stood in long lines to obtain marriage licenses and to get married on the spot with a waiver of the mandatory 24 hour wait. This one protester was largely ignored and his rant delivered from a distance was unheard. Later, a man who identified as Jewish, Joseph Garber, joined him in the protesters’ pen. His signs were barely legible. One read “Homo Sexuality is a Biblican sin”.
