'I never anticipated this level of support'
GENEVA – When anti-gay activists again approached members of a Geneva church that is welcoming to the gay community, organizers of a rapid response email and text message blast brought out a crowd that intervened.
Geneva resident Colin Campbell said he went to the First Congregational Church of Geneva, 321 Hamilton St., Geneva, about 9:30 a.m. Dec. 10 and saw seven men standing on the sidewalk.
“I was hopeful this group wouldn’t show up again,” Campbell said. “I walked over to see who they were and they were asking me if I was a follower of Jesus Christ and gave me a flier that said, 'Love Kills Pride.' I said, 'Thank you very much' and walked away and called my wife.”
