You have to laugh at the SHEER hypocrisy of it all. Get this.
A LARGE religious contingent is expected to protest along the route of the Belfast Gay Pride parade which is taking place in the city centre on Saturday. An evangelical service will be held adjacent to St Anne’s Cathedral in a stand “against sodomy”.
The Rev David McIlveen from Sandown Road Free Presbyterian Church is leading the witness, which they have held every year since the Gay Pride took to the streets of Belfast. Mr McIlveen said there will be a large group of Free Presbyterians taking part as well as a youth choir from America. “We have had a lot of support. I think it’s fair to say we don’t go out of our way to get that support but if we didn’t get it we would still express our point of view,” he said. “There is a very strong feeling amongst Christian people particularly that sodomy is wrong and contrary to the teaching of the Bible.” And he hit out against people who have branded such beliefs as homophobic by saying “we are just expressing our genuinely held Christian belief”. He said while they don’t seek political support he had “no doubt there will be politicians who feel sympathetically disposed to our point of view”.
