This article reminded me of the following texts: “…the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed (Lot’s) house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know (meaning have sex with) them”. (Gen.19: 4-5)

As Messiah said regarding one of the signs of the last days will be like the “days of Sodom”. (r. a. intro)

On Wednesday night, as Vice President-elect Mike Pence held his own inaugural dinner at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., hundreds of LGBTQ activists and their allies took to the streets in front of his suburban D.C. rental home to protest Pence’s infamous history of homo- and transphobic policies.

“We are here today to take the streets as our dance floor … and to send a clear message to Daddy Pence that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate in our country,” said Firas Nasr, an organizer of the event.

The festive gathering in the normally staid Chevy Chase neighborhood, where Pence is renting a $6,000-a-month house, saw tutu and sparkle-bedazzled demonstrators distributing rainbow flags and flavored condoms to the vice president’s neighbors, inviting passers-by to “shake our booties and bodies” to a soundtrack including Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga blasted from speakers in the back of a pick-up truck.

“We are here to celebrate the queer liberation and say that love will trump hate,” Lisa Fithian, who traveled from Texas to protest the inauguration, told CNN. “Mike Pence needs to find his heart and recognize that this is a country that needs to be loving and welcoming to everyone,” she added.

“I would want to speak to him one-on-one, just explain how it is to be a trans woman in this country, and tell him it can be hard and they are making it harder, trying to push us down,” said Stephanie Fritsch. “But I’m not being pushed down, I’m here.”

A Christian extremist, Pence has attempted to ban same-sex marriage, going to far as passing a bill while governor of Indiana which would impose criminal penalties on couples attempting to exercise their constitutional right to marry; tried to divert funding to HIV/AIDStreatment into anti-LGBTQ “conversion therapy” programs; and served on the board of an affiliate of Focus on the Family, which the Southern Poverty Law Center identifies as an anti-LGBTQ hate group.

pence-vpWednesday’s protest, organized by Werk for Peace and DisruptJ20, was not the first neighborhood action to call-out Pence’s (pic on left) notorious homophobia.

In December, almost a dozen of Pence’s new neighbors put rainbow flags, the international colors of the LGBTQ rights movement, in front of their houses to – in the words of one neighbor – “show my disagreement,” with his anti-queer crusading.

Hundreds of thousands of activists have started arriving in D.C. this week in anticipation of multiple protest actions in the lead up to Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump as president, culminating in the Jan. 21 Women’s March, which organizers expect will be the biggest protest in the nation’s capital since the 1960s.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
