Who’s Harassing Whom? Gay Protesters Bump Heads With Priest Outside Chick-Fil-A

If the shooting at the Family Rights Council proved anything — at least to the conservative constituency — it’s that intolerance goes both ways.

Though we’re clearly taking it with a grain of salt, The Gateway Pundit posted a video of “horrible gay activists” attacking a priest while protesting in front of a Chick-Fil-A in Chicago earlier this month. The activists from the Gay Liberation Network can be heard chanting “hateful bigot” to Father Gerald O’Reilly, who claims he was simply “praying the rosary.”

When asked by the cameraman if he had “ever been treated that way by any other group or person,” the priest responds solemnly, “No, no…and when I asked them about tolerance, they said they don’t want tolerance, they want equality.”

What do you think? The priest, if he’s a priest at all, could just have been there to provoke the protesters, or the protesters could just have been easily provoked. Was this a stunt or were the “radical gay activists” guilty of being intolerant?
