On Hatred and Cookies: Hate Group Accosts PCUSA

Wednesday, June 25, during the supper break, an anti-gay hate group brought signs to the plaza of the Convention Center and accosted Commissioners (voting delegates), youth delegates, and other participants in the PCUSA General Assembly in San Jose. The New Church (R)evolution youth, along with other supportive groups, offered a nonviolent witness in response by kneeling, praying, and singing about Christian love and peacebuilding. NCR also handed out cookies and consoled the Assembly delegates, some of whom were quite upset at the hate group's remarks.
