Florida church launches “No Homo Mayor” campaign
A Florida church is taking a stand against Gainesville mayoral candidate Craig Lowe with its “No Homo Mayor” campaign.
Posting a anti-gay video on YouTube, the video urged people to take action.
“Here is Gainesville they’re getting ready to have a run-off election between two candidates, and one of ‘em is openly a homo, gay … uh … a fag, whatever you want to call him,” Dove World Outreach Center pastor Wayne Sapp says in the video. “Bottom line is, we cannot afford a homo mayor. … We got one running for mayor of Gainesville, trying to convert Gainesville into Homoville. We can’t have it.”
The video was later removed from YouTube for violating terms of service, but anti-gay videos can still be found on the church’s Web site .
Lowe was the top vote-getter in this month’s general election. But because no single candidate in the field of five received more than 50 percent of the vote, a run-off is set for next month.
