Marriage equality came to North Carolina last week and dozens of gay couples got married at county courthouses. Flip Benham, the incredibly extreme anti-gay and anti-choice fanatic, was there to protest those weddings. Maybe that’s what they mean by civil disobedience?
Three anti-LGBT protesters were present outside the register’s office, including well-known street preacher and convicted stalker Flip Benham. He interrupted several couples’ weddings as supporters held up a large rainbow flag to block his view.
Another protester waved a bible in the air as he screamed several profanities and vulgarities. He was asked by sheriff’s deputies to tone it down or leave. He opted for the latter.Despite the protesters, those gathered celebrated at each of the several weddings held outside the register’s office.
If this is what the bigots mean by demanding civil disobedience, I say keep it up because it will backfire on them big time. It will make them exactly like the Westboro Baptist Church does when they protest funerals, like the vicious bigots that they are.
