That’s fair- if they paid to be in the park, they deserve to say what can and can’t go on at their own event. He can spread his hate OUTSIDE, which he probably will.
People should throw the bibles back at them en masse. They’ll think twice about turning up next year.
I would non-violently accept their free bible and then proceed to desecrate the hell out of it right in front of their smug pious faces.
I say: have a raditional, Christian event: burn the buckers at the stake!
BBQ Pork x 2!
We do not bare them from the park, but bare them in the permited area of our own celebration.
take the bibles and tear them up and then trample them underfoot
a couple options: stand beside them with a big sign that says “free toilet paper”.
as has been said, take the bibles, then tear them up. I’m guessing that burning them would violate some sort of fire prohibition.
once the bible is in your hands, i assume it to be your property, to do with as you choose.
also consider, that when the christians have a party in the park, all the homos can arrive to hand out literature, identifying the dangers of religious nutcakes.
Happy Pride, Minneapolis-St-Paul. Hope all goes well for you!
Agree with first comment — if PRIDE has paid for a lease, there must be something in the agreement, standard for anyone leasing the property, that allows them some control over who attends. If someone leased the property to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, birthday or other event, does that mean that anyone from the general public is free to attend and eat the food?
There has to be some kind of limitation allowed to the person or group paying to lease the property.
As I comment in the other topic, we can’t use these two option. otherwise creating outrage. Most of us have Bible, just bring ít and return to them with the sign: “We do not belong to Adam-Eva familly in which brothers and sisters had sex to eachother”. By this way we go all the way to the core of their doctrime.
I’m with Douglas in Canada on this one. Open air festivals always have a low supply of toilet paper, so you can kill two birds with one stone! Hang it on a hook in the chemical toilet… start with Leviticus and work your way through.
It all depends on the kind of paper these stories are printed on. But with some creativity the paper might be put to other kinds of use as well.
Personally, I’d be wary before destroying the bibles they hand – you know how twisted these guys and their lawyers are: they’d claim they were simply “loaning” the bibles and their property had been deliberately destroyed.
Personally, I would get them to confirm, nice and loudly, that they are giving you the bible and that it is your property. I’d also take a bag with me and have one of those personal shredders – hand or battery powered – and then shred it in front of them. Me, I’d like the hand-cranked one, cos you can control the speed and really prolong the agony for them lol
Phoenix – an ordinary shredder won’t work on a bible unless you tear it to shreds 6 pages at a time. A woodchipper on the other hand…
I know, that’s why I suggested it – you’d have to do it a few pages at a time, thus prolonging the agony for them AND prolonging your entertainment as they squirm and get in a flap as you safely dispose of the Hate Book :-)
There’s no need to tear up the bibles – why take it out on a quaint ancient book that they selectively abuse? From experience I can say that they are gobsmacked to learn you already have one (or more), thanks very much.
