Increased animosity toward churches because of their Biblically based moral teaching sometimes results in actual disruption of church services. The disruptors’ intent is to intimidate churches into foregoing their right to speak up on issues like homosexual behavior by terrorizing parishioners. ADF went to court to protect a Michigan church in Mt. Hope Church v.

We won that case, securing a nationwide injunction against BashBack! prohibiting it from continuing to disrupt churches. FULL POST
