On Saturday past (30th May) we travelled to Belfast, our capital city to engage in a public witness against a rally calling for homosexual “marriage” in Northern Ireland.
In the days before the rally, we informed some Christian Pastors/Ministers and sought their support in opposing the homosexual lobby. We learned that one Minister was unable to come but we cannot explain the absence of the others.
So there were two of us (my husband and I) facing a crowd of hundreds (but certainly not the 4.6k the organiser is claiming as attendees,) until close to the end when we were joined by a Christian couple who were on their way to Ashers Bakery to give them custom but when they saw the two of us they approached us and gave words of encouragement. They then left but only walked a few yards and stopped and returned to stand with us, telling us that they couldn’t leave us. How lovely to hear such words.
Speaking of Ashers, we noticed in the crowd the man who has caused such trouble for them, their accuser Gareth Lee. There he was, just across the road from us, filming or photographing us.
We displayed Bible placards, one of which warned the LGBT crowd that Biblical marriage = 1 man & 1 woman. They naturally took exception to our Bible signs and we faced increasing hostility and eventually physical danger from some particularly menacing homosexuals and their supporters who began to surround us and were it not for the presence of the Police who moved swiftly to protect us, we would have been in real danger of physical harm.
So we wish to thank the Police for their protection and the Christian couple for their support.
To the majority of Evangelical Christians in Northern Ireland we say “Wake up Pastors, Wake up Christians” (to borrow the closing words from Pastor Robert McCurry’s Wake – Up Herald.)
