after what i consider an amazing turnout of a large group of concerned citizens taking a peaceful, yet passionate stand for a great cause, it seems that somebody has taken the low road in the destruction of private property in an effort of retaliation against something offensive. as americans, we should be able to pride ourselves in the rights that we have. freedom of speech and the right to PEACEABLY assemble to share our disagreements with one another. the sign that was put out by the seagate community chapel was a very blatant and obviously offensive message. when we stood together yesterday to share our message of LOVE and acceptance it felt like we actually made some progress and were able to have some great conversations with members of the church as well as people that share our own views. the destruction of the church's sign is more offensive to me than what was written on the sign. this is an embarrassment and a disgrace to our entire community. i hope that the actions of few will not be recognized more than the congregation of many. i am disappointed, but i am proud and very happy that we all came together to stand for what we believe in.
