It's Getting Hot in Here...

I'm certainly not one to side with Christian assholicism, but I'm not a fan when my side behaves douchily either. That these people were in the Castro district trying to convert people from homosexuality shows that they're clueless; that they did it so soon after the passage of Proposition 8 shows them to be tasteless as well. But that they needed police protection and were hounded the entire way out shows that neither side has a monopoly on tact. Frankly, the nastiness of the whole incident (especially the guy who comes in at 1:57) brought back bad memories of the nuts that McCain and Palin were attracting in the final weeks of their campaign.

I don't buy the testimony of one of the group members who claims to have been molested, but the fact of the matter is that in this country no one should have to worry about people abusing and throwing things at them over matters of free speech.
