Skip to comments.Maine Church Vandalized With Swastikas Allegedly for Gay Marriage Stance
Posted on 11/08/2012 3:56:48 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Stockton Springs Community Church in Waldo County, Maine, has been vandalized with swastikas spray-painted on its front door and on two signs on its lawn, supposedly for the church's support of traditional marriage.
"I was shocked and horrified when I arrived at the church this morning and saw swastikas painted all over our property. Clearly, those who want to redefine marriage also want to redefine tolerance," said Pastor Steve DeGroft. "Our congregation has taken a loving and respectful stand for traditional marriage in our community, but those who disagree want to silence and intimidate us. We can't be apathetic, and can't be bullied. I urge all Mainers to go to the polls today and Vote No on Question 1."
Pastor DeGroft refers to the vote in Maine on Nov. 6 regarding the legalization of same-sex marriage, which was passed. Stockton Springs and other churches have urged people to support the traditional definition of marriage as union between one man and one woman, but their efforts were not enough on Election Day, as voters in Maine, Minnesota, Maryland and Washington State all approved adding same-sex couples to that definition.

Read the Bible story of Sodom.
We are living it.
Nazis support gay marriage?
This is New England...the LEAST religious section of the country. I am not the slightest bit surprised that this would happen in Maine. Conservatives and Christians...if you have the ability to do so, move south. Warmer weather, longer growing season, better class of neighbor.
Give me a second and let me try to find some sympathy for this sodomite church of satan.......... nope... none there.
I think it’s ‘Nazis don’t support gay marriage, in their minds’.
“Sodomite church of satan...?” Did I miss something?
The church in question supported TRADITIONAL marriage. Or did I miss the sarcasm
Ahhh...I was wondering why it would be a swastika...
This is precisely WHY we need to pull our children OUT of the public schools NOW, because that is precisely where this crap is coming from...
The founding Nazis were actually homosexuals.
Even Leftists admit it.
....And the begining of a new revolt down the road. This country will blow up down the road. I have been predicting it.
And will end up on the recieving end of God’s wraith.
This church was against sodomy.
trying to give nazis a bad name...
(1) If this is indeed legitimate, this WILL NOT be ruled a hate crime since the victim is on the side kf tradition/conservatism. More likely, the church itself will be charged with achate crime for being provacatively anti-gay.
(2) Having said that, this may be a hoax. It seems like whenever a swastika is painted on a church it turns out to be an inside job.
Well in that case please accept a retraction and I issue prayers and support for all brothers and sisters in GOD.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
God’s wrath: Have we ever actually seen it?
Sometimes we see people punished and we call it Karma,is it really Karma or Gods wrath. Would we recognise it if we saw it.
It’s hard to say because for every person who I feel needs to be punished by God and then get’s it, I see 20 who should not be punished, and yet they are punished.
I also see those who I feel need God’s wrath living in great mansions, and even the White House.
Now of course I should not be the one to Judge who should receive God’s wrath or His rewards, I am just stating what I have seen in this life.
In the Old section of the Bible God’s wrath was easily recognised, in the New, not so much.
Perhaps that is one reason so many now ignore religion and even attack it.
Thomas doubted Jesus and was shown the proof of his miracle . We in the modern world do not see the proof so often, or we do not recognise it when we do see it. We must rely on Faith.Faith is becoming weak, and it is showing in the pews.
