Neighbors on one block in east Toronto confronted members of the Highfield Road Gospel Hall, who have repeatedly "prayed outside the home of the gay couple and condemned them as sinners."
The video was captured by Geoff Skelding, who lives on the block and says the evangelists have been active for years. "This is a group from a church at the end of my street. Apparently they have been grouping in front of a gay couple's house and reading their bible loudly for the past 7 years. They may have also driven a lesbian couple from the area as well by doing the same thing. Tonight most of our neighbours came out and were successful in getting them to leave. The people who go to that church don't even live in our area! Police came by shortly thereafter."
Says one evangelist in the clip: "We have the authority to preach the gospel. We've been doing this for 70 years."
One neighbors retorts: "You don't know what love means." Another yells: "Stay the hell out of my neighborhood."
Almost surrealistic that this would happen in Canada. Hopefully this church won't inspire similar actions on this side of the border. WWJD? Watch the clip WHEN YOU JUMP ...
