Group holds anti-gay protests on Southeastern's campus

A regular day on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond turned into a spectacle when a Christian group called Consuming Fire Fellowship held large signs and spoke loudly to a crowd of students against sin and homosexuality.

Some of the signs members of the group were holding while protesting read, “Homosexuality is perversion.”

“All I heard was like, ‘Gays are wrong!” student Joshua Erikson said.

He says the message the group is sending makes him sick to his stomach.

“No one should feel like an outcast because they’ve chosen a lifestyle they like,” he said.

One viewer who sent photos of the protest said one student was told before going to class that he will go to hell for his homosexuality. Other students were in tears while others yelled back.

1. "Consuming Fire"

The name of the outfit reveals the mentality.

2. Huh?

“No one should feel like an outcast because they’ve chosen a lifestyle they like,” he said.

It's not a choice !

"... one student was told before going to class that he will go to hell"

Yep!
My right wing evangelical siblings told me years ago I'll be burning in Hell while they're partying in Heaven.

3. Absolute pure hatred and the local tv station chooses to interview someone who believes being gay

is a lifestyle choice as a rebuttal to this group's actions . All bad

4. When Westboro came to town... many years back for SF pride...

A group of us found their little contingent and surrounded them, just to discourage anyone who would try to shout epithets their way. We also deflected a television crew back onto the parade.
And it worked! Like a baby throwing a tantrum, they were there for the attention! Once they realized they weren't going to get "persecuted for their beliefs" with media exposure, they packed up their bus and left.
If something like that doesn't work, well...
