Militant Homosexualists Vandalize IL Christian Academy

In an angry rage, doors and windows were bashed with concrete overnight at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois at the site of tonight's program featuring prominent Christian leaders, including Moody Church Pastor Erwin Lutzer, speaking truth about sinful homosexual behavior.

Obviously a "hate crime" was committed, yet these vandals say their target is a "hate group."

UPDATE 10/16/11 From "Christian Liberty Academy vandalized" by Zuzanna Skwiot, Daily Herald

When administrators arrived at the academy at 502 W. Euclid Ave., they discovered a number of broken windows and door panes on the east side of the building, which were shattered by bricks, Arlington Heights Police Capt. Nicholas Pecora said. There are no suspects yet.

Attached to one of the bricks was a note, which referenced speakers scheduled for a Saturday night banquet at the school, said the Rev. Calvin Lindstrom of Christian Liberty. The note read, “This is just a sample of what we will do if you don’t shut down Scott Lively and AFTAH,” Lindstrom said.

The banquet was organized by the Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, a group that seeks to expose the “homosexual activist agenda,” according to its website. The banquet featured speaker and Moody Church pastor Rev. Erwin Lutzer and honored Scott Lively of Defending the Family International and Abiding Truth Ministries with the “American Truthteller” award.

About 30 protesters picketed the banquet outside the academy, but police, who were present at the event, said no arrests were made.

From "Gay rights opponent in Arlington Heights Saturday" by Deborah Donovan, Daily Herald 10/14/11

The Naperville-based Americans for Truth about Homosexuality [Peter LaBarbera, President] will honor the Rev. Scott Lively at a dinner at Christian Liberty Academy.

Outside the Saturday dinner the Gay Liberation Network will protest, as it does annually, said Roger Fraser of Rolling Meadows, a network member.

Fraser said the Network calls the event the “bigot banquet” and pickets will carry signs and protest loudly.

The Rev. Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of Moody Church in Chicago, will be the main speaker at the dinner.

From "Gay Rights Protest Planned For Arlington Hts." by Tim O'Connor, Journal & Topics Newspapers (Des Plaines) 10/14/11

Fraser, a Rolling Meadows resident [and teacher in Palatine School Dist. 15] who describes himself as straight but a bit of a closet cross dresser . . .

His involvement over the past decade with the Gay Liberation Network and the protests he's attended, like the one this Saturday night at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Hts. . . .

"I was determined as a teacher that I was going to be an advocate," Fraser said.

Past protests at [Liberty Academy] have had activists banging drums, chanting slogans, and marching, Lindstrom said. Those chants can at times become angry, heightening tensions around the school.

From "Christian Liberty Academy Attacked For Hosting Homophobic Events" posted anonymously at Infoshop News 10/15/11

In the early morning hours of October 15th, we put two chunks of concrete through the glass windows and doors of the Christian liberty academy (502 W. Euclid Ave., Arlington Heights, IL) We did this because at 6pm today they will be hosting an event organized by the homophobic hate group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality that will be presenting an award to Scott Lively. . . .

These chunks of concrete were thrown through these windows and doors for two reasons: to show that there is a consequence for hatred and homophobia in our community and to directly cause this event to be shut down. If this event is not shut down, and the homophobic day trainings do not end, the Christian liberty academy will continue to be under constant attack.

Please call scott lively, Christian liberty academy and peter Labarbera and tell them how you feel

From "Moody Pastor Erwin Lutzer Holds Firm as Marxist Homosexual Group Pressures him to Pull Out of AFTAH Banquet" by Peter LaBarbera, Americans for Truth about Homosexuality 10/13/11

A Chicago Marxist group, Gay Liberation Network, is pressuring Moody Church Pastor Dr. Erwin Lutzer to pull out as keynote speaker at the Americans For Truth banquet this Saturday because AFTAH is honoring Scott Lively, who GLN falsely claims has a “history as a vicious gay basher.” At the October 15 event, AFTAH will present Lively with its 2011 “American Truth Teller” award for his years of defending truth on the homosexual issue.

In his letter to Lutzer, GLN’s Bob Schwartz writes:

“Are you aware of Lively’s history as a vicious gay basher?…In addition, as you may know, LaBarbera’s organization [AFTAH] and Lively’s Abiding Truth Ministries are both described as ‘hate groups’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Are these the kinds of organizations with which you wish to associate the Moody Church? …[W]e take you at your word when you say you oppose violence against gays. We therefore assume that you would not want to be associated with those, like Lively and LaBarbera, who either support violence outright, or honor those who do.”

From "'Gay' hate vandalizes church, threatens even more violence" by Drew Zahn, World Net Daily 10/15/11

Upon the concrete bricks were written the words "Shut down Lively," and the vandals included a note theatening more violence if the church and school didn't stop hosting such "homophobic" guests.

"This is just a sample of what we will do if you don't shut down Scott Lively and AFTAH," the note reads. "F--- Scott Lively. Quit the homophobic s---!"

"We see the homosexual agenda is becoming so arrogant in its growing power," LaBarbera added, "but we've never seen this before, what we would call 'homofascism' being raised to the level of domestic terrorism."

"A lot of Chistians cower in fear before the power and influence of the homosexual lobby," LaBarbera added. "It's not helpful. If you demonstrate you can be intimidated, you reward the bully. The 'gay' bully has been rewarded enough times, so many times they think they can get their way. We hope more churches will refuse to be bullied and will stand up to tell the truth about the homosexual agenda."
