The city of Eureka Springs, Arkansas was home to a huge “Celebrate Jesus Easter Parade” this weekend with several local churches taking part in the annual festivities.
But representatives from the Eureka Springs First Methodist Church were told they couldn’t participate even after being accepted initially.
Take a wild guess why…
Church member Suzie Bell believes it’s because of their stance on the LGBT community.
“They wanted to know what our banner was going to say, and it said “Jesus loves all. They had decided that they did not want us in the parade, and that we weren’t welcome.” Bell said.
“It was based purely on our love and acceptance of the LGBT community.” Bell said.
