Australian Christianist Counter-Protestor Lovingly Throws Wicked Lesbian From Wheelchair

200 people gathered outside parliament during an initially peaceful rally for the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia in Adelaide, Australia today before members of the Adelaide Street Church showed up waving their “God hates sinners” banner, getting in people’s faces, yelling loudly, and (according to two people) pushing a woman out of her wheelchair. A member of the church said that they didn’t come to disrupt but to love everybody and just quote the bible. Jesus loves (it when you throw crippled people to the ground).

It seems part of the anti-gay Christianist strategy these days to try to provoke LGBT folks into violence. Refusing to sink to their level makes them seem even crazier, but is there any way we can incorporate footage of their hateful signs and violence into our marriage equality PSAs?

In happier news the pro-LGBT folks outnumbered the haters at the most recent stop of the National Organization for Marriage’s “Summer of Hate” bus tour.

    Asshole extremists. Religion continues to corrupt and infect this world especially with MORE hatred violence and anger.

  • Shannon1981

    This is despicable. Whoever did that should be arrested.

    Religion and loving Christians doing the Lord’s work again.

  • ChrisC

    This is why I’m so against religion so much. It’s caused nothing but trouble.

  • Shofixti

    God hates sinners, wtf? That is so laughably wrong.
    You have to assume they have never read the Bible.

    John 3:16 – For God is so loving and patient towards bigots that He sent his son to die just to give them another chance.

  • jason

    He probably won’t be arrested. This is Australia, don’t forget. One of the most backward places in the world. Adelaide is a dump.

  • Chris

    God hates sinners???
    No!!! God loves everyone. Jesus came for sinners and that includes everyone. We are all sinners, even gays. We’ve each got our favoruite sin. But that doesn’t make sin right. It’s not a sin to be gay but it is a sin to have gay sex. However I don’t expect that this comment will be published given the 100% bias of this website.

  • TheRealAdam

    Stupid Christians and their damn Bible at it again. Is anyone really shocked? And they have the nerve to spout off they’re not there to condemn anyone. Well, why the FUCK are you there in the first place preaching against them?!

  • Jesus is Fraud

    Haaaaa I am not a particular fan of anyones cause, but I have an incredible dislike of the nazi christians and their bullshit cult of hate.

    When you look at where all of this cult based bullshit comes from…

    Check this out…


    25 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males.

    Exodus 22:

    23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;

    24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

    Exodus 32:

    26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

    27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

    Numbers 21:

    23 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.

    24 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.

    25 And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof.

    Numbers 31:

    5 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

    6 And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.

    7 And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

    8 And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

    9 And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.

    10 And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.

    11 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts.

    12 And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.

    13 And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

    14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.

    15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

    16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

    17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

    18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

    Deutronomy 13:

    15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.

    Deutronomy 20:

    12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:

    13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

    14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

    15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.

    16 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:

    17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:

    Joshua 6:

    20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

    21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.

    Joshua 7:

    20 And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw, and, behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they had no power to flee this way or that way: and the people that fled to the wilderness turned back upon the pursuers.

    21 And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended, then they turned again, and slew the men of Ai.

    22 And the other issued out of the city against them; so they were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on that side: and they smote them, so that they let none of them remain or escape.

    23 And the king of Ai they took alive, and brought him to Joshua.

    24 And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness wherein they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the edge of the sword, until they were consumed, that all the Israelites returned unto Ai, and smote it with the edge of the sword.

    25 And so it was, that all that fell that day, both of men and women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai.

    26 For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai.

    27 Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD which he commanded Joshua.

    28 And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it an heap for ever, even a desolation unto this day.

    29 And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide: and as soon as the sun was down, Joshua commanded that they should take his carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the entering of the gate of the city, and raise thereon a great heap of stones, that remaineth unto this day.

    Then along came Adolf Hitler – a christian, who stated, “God is with us”; and then he had put to death with the gun and the bomb and the gassing, and he killed their kings, burned their homes and cities, they killed all the men, women and children, they took all their food, cattle, crops and lands, and laid waste and took them into bondage etc., etc., etc., etc…

    It seems to me that this holocausting business “In the name of god” – by the extermination of entire nations for profit, land and righteous cultural oppression; has been going on for a LONG time.

    So christianity – is a hate cult… QED.

  • Shannon1981

    wow there is a lot of trolling in this thread…

  • David Gervais


    Why wouldn’t you comment be published? You have every right to express your opinion that people should not behave as god intended.

    But if you are a *real* christian, you know that when you oppose gay sex, you oppose the will of god to have gays express their love in the way he intended.

    @denis mulheron

    Why are you so fascinated by penises, corn holes and snatch slurpers? Are you the lady who doth protest too much?

    BTW, do a quick scan of the news about pedophiles. With the exception of priests and ministers who seem to have a thing for altar boys, it is almost aways a man after little girls.

    Hey look – religious zealots spouting off hate and vulgarities. It’s quite telling of their intelligence that they can’t spell simple words like “disgusting”.

  • Shannon1981

    @James: @David Gervais: Don’t even bother replying. Queerty is ripe for trolling, and a thread involving religion always draws them here in droves.

  • David Gervais

    Hi Shannon:

    I’m just playing whack-a-troll. I know that religion has rotted their brains beyond recovery. That “paula”, is most likely some very fat guy who hasn’t a chance of ever finding out what kind of sex he likes.

  • Shannon1981

    LOL David. I just didn’t want you to let them upset you. One thing that is great about Queerty is that they censor hardly anything. But its a double edged sword, because a site where no sign up is necessary to spew whatever verbal diarrhea you please then disappear into the sunset without fear of censorship= a troll’s heaven.

  • M. geary

    This group of bigots is a recent phenomenon in Adelaide, which is a quiet, fairly tolerant city, no more than usually homophobic. There aren’t many of the fanatics, but they have been making a nuisance of themselves by ranting and raving (sorry, Witnessing) in the streets over the past 3 months. This is the first time they’ve really shown their true colours, but I suppose it won’t be the last.
    It’s sad that a peaceful demonstration should have been turned into a battlefield, but I’m very much afraid that this pack of god’s hyenas won’t go away. They have such a splendid example of mindless bigotry to model themselves on in the Westboro Baptist Church, which seems to be their inspiration.
    This isn’t Adelaide’s best side, but it’s also not typical – I apologise for my city’s poor reception of a perfectly peaceful (and lawful) group of people, excercising their democratic right to make their protest heard by our government.

    This is just for fun for us, and to demonstrate to Paula that the youth of the world reject the hate spewed by old people who have stopped growing.

    @Chris: I’m sorry, please do share. Where the hell does it say that gay sex is a sin in the Bible?
    Why do you pander to all those idiots who use falsified translations of the original texts to support such utter rot?
    There isn’t a single mention of gay sex anywhere in the bible.
    If you believe that, then you are either willfully ignorant, or are an idiot.

  • Aussie Col

    What I don’t understand is that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality, and He did speak on the fact that we earthly bound folk should NOT ‘judge’ others because that is God’s perogative. He also did the ‘let he who is without sin to throw the first stone’. Jesus said you should not enter into prayer with hate in your heart, or with any conflict. I don’t see how thes publicity seekers can be called Christians. Churchgoers have replaced God with Church and if any of them did any real reading of the Bible would know there’s not any Jesus in todays congregations. They might mention a name, but his presesnce will never be where there is hate. I also think they missed the boat with Jesus and his commandment of LOVE. Love thy neighbours, thy enemies………everyone. So this bunch in the video defintely have a lot of penance before they reach the pearly gates. How awful it must be to have to hate another to preserve your feeling of privilege. How insecure must you be about the sins in your past, or lacking in faith about your chosen path to attack peaceful protestors and throw a disabled person from a wheelchair. I feel very sorry for the ‘Christians’ in this story because they have ‘nothing’. They have abandoned Jesus.

  • Jesus is Fraud

    Homo in the bible! Jesus IS the founder of the worlds gay movement!

    He is a butch, sweaty hard working guy with a very accommodating arse – to die for.

    He is a cross dressing queen, who wore gowns, which are ladies clothing.

    He went away on camping trips into the desert, with 12 men – who he kissed often – and to this day he expresses his desire to be a lover of all mankind.

    And he is into bondage and dicipline…

    Take it from me, there is nothing like being with Jesus when he is in the mood for a lot of hard cock; That is why he has 12 boy friends and an insatiable need to love all men.

    You guys will no doubt be SHOCKED to hear that the comments from “Denis Mulheron” and “Paula Barnett” both come from the same IP address. Is one or both fake? Is Paula just borrowing Denis’ computer? Who knows.

    But here’s an interesting tidbit: Denis Mulheron made headlines a few months ago when he sent a fax to a politician that contained terms like “sandnigger.” Here’s some details: http://buckfrain.wordpress.com/2010/08/10/judge-for-yourself/

    Denis was helpful enough to include his email address when he signed up for a Queerty account, so I searched for it and discovered that it’s also associated with a commenter named “Donna Maria Morello,” who left a comment on a blog … praising Denis Mulheron.

  • Aussie Col

    @paula barnett: Is God the source of your venom and hate? As a gay man I find salvation in the LOVE of Jesus. Something you know nothing about. I am more than happy for God to judge me, for that is His role – as for YOU speaking for God – give up tryhard. You don’t represent Him, you can’t understand Him, because He is perfect and YOU are not. See you in Hell [email protected]matt baume:

  • joblo

    @Chris: What an utterly stupid comment. If god doesn’t hate gays, why would he hate gay sex??? Oh sorry, I forgot, common sense not really required for pple that believe the universe was made in 7 days… Why, if your skydaddy is the createor of everything, would he need to impregnate a virgin to give birth to himself on earth? Don’t make a whole lotta sense when u think it thru rationally now does it Chris? Regardless, if you feel the need to believe that skydaddy loves you unconditionally, even tho he will send you to burn forever if you stray from anything he says (even though half of his shit contradicts the other half, ie don’t kill, but an eye for an eye just to name 1 of many), thats fine, but why do you people, christian, muslim, jewish, romulan, jedi whatever, feel the need to push your stupidity on other pple. If u r right, u’ll go to heaven & why do you give a shit, just live according to your beliefs and leave others the fuck alone. I personally dont need the threat of eternal damnation to do the right thing.

    Denis is proud of his bigotry, I found this too


    So he doesn’t just hate fags, he hates ‘n….r’s, Indians, and whatever he isn’t – so I suspect happy people as well. He seems to be very well known for his abusive language. I suspecetd all along he was only typeing with one hand and getting excited every time he gets to use a ‘naughty’ word. I’m starting to feel very sorry and sad for him, he has some very big issues based on fear. Sad little man, with sad little ideas, where no one listens to him unless he says bad words.
