There have recently been a few instances of homophobic and transphobic protesters outside local Episcopal churches. At St. John’s, we sadly do run a risk (but by no means a certainty) of having someone protest outside our parish.
How can we best respond if this were to happen? In this video, the Rev. Tim Kingsley advises us:
Don’t engage — because often these particular protesters’ main goal is to provoke a response that will allow them to bring a lawsuit.
Report the incident to your parish leadership and ECMN.
Pray for the protesters and those who will be hurt by their words and hate.
