Thanks to Billy Rojas for the assembling of this documentation of which this writer actually experienced fist hand one of the attacks.
Violent attacks by homosexuals against Christian churches – 1989 to 2017
By: Billy Rojas
The following Timeline was compiled from ten separate sources
located after considerable time searching, as part of research for
a book project currently in progress. The Timeline lists homosexual
attacks against Christian churches in the United States, plus there are
comments about similar attacks in Europe and one that is
known in South America.
Necessarily this is an incomplete study; comments at various sites indicate
a much larger total number during the years in question, from 1989 to 2017.
Regardless, this Timeline might have immediate uses and despite the fact that
it is intended as content within a book it can stand alone as written. Any Christian
organization which wishes to use this list is free to do so unencumbered, for free.
This also applies to other religious groups or civic groups or individuals
who share the view that homosexuality is the greatest evil of our time,
or certainly one of the greatest evils, and crimes committed by homosexuals
or their supporters must be stopped.
All that is asked is that anyone who uses this Timeline should give me due credit
for the work that went into it over a period of 4+ days, just as I have given
explicit credit to my sources of information.
Although every effort has been made to be as accurate as possible, should
anyone find one or another mistake, please let me know so that any errors
can be corrected
If anyone who reads this knows of additional incidents featuring homosexual
violence against Christian churches or against individual Christians,
feel free to contact me with the information, including any sources used
in providing the information. It would be helpful to add other examples
to the Timeline list.
Read and weep.

Violent attacks by homosexuals against Christian churches
1989 – 2017
First Orthodox Presbyterian Church, San Francisco, 1989, various sources.
Numerous attacks against the pastor, Dr. Chuck McIlhenny, who had led a
movement that had defeated a domestic partnership law in the city; at one point
(difficult to imagine now) about 7000 Christians gathered in support of McIlhenny.
The homosexuals did not like this and began their efforts to try and intimidate
the pastor. For the next three years there was an almost constant barrage
of ugly phone calls, such as several in which the callers threatened that
McIlhenny’s three young daughters would be savaged. Mc Ilhenny’s home
was firebombed at a time when the entire family was present. The church
was vandalized on a number of occasions; as one report said, “homosexuals
broke the church’s windows so many times the parishioners had to
board them up permanently.” In all that time there were no prosecutions
for crimes against the McIlhenny family or against the Presbyterian church.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York City, December 10, 1989,
reported in the National Catholic Weekly, September 21, 2015,
and other sources. As the Brian Clowes story said, a large number
of homosexuals, plus some pro-abortion activists, members of ACT-UP,
stormed the church, assaulting parishioners, disrupting John Cardinal
O’Connor’s Mass, and desecrating the consecrated Host by throwing
the Host on the ground and stamping on It. Outside, hundreds of screaming
homosexuals burned Cardinal O’Connor in effigy and attacked passersby…”
Signs that the homosexuals displayed to the public included one which
proclaimed “Mary Should Have Had an Abortion;” another said
“Christ was a homosexual,” and still another added “Death to the Church!,”
The media, present in full force, had next to nothing to say by way of
condemnation of the homosexuals; as far as the police were concerned
nothing the homosexuals did warranted even one arrest. When the event
was over ACT-UP released a press statement that insisted that its “cause”
was “…important enough [to allow us] to invade any space,
to disrupt any speech.” Michael Moore, present at the time,
expressed his approval of the homosexual activities.
Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, Los Angeles, date uncertain,
- 1990, reported in a National Catholic Weekly story, September 21, 2015.
As part of a campaign against Roger Cardinal Mahony, a mob of homosexuals
attacked the cathedral, “desecrating it with bloody-red handprints and
pornographic photographs of perverted sex acts and ACT-UP posters
plastered everywhere. At St. Catherine’s, they nailed a ten-foot cross
festooned with plastic penises and used condoms to the church door.
They also smeared the chancery with animal blood and entrails.”
Hamilton Square Baptist Church, San Francisco, September 19, 1993,
reported by Traditional Values Coalition. To quote the report verbatim:
“Hundreds of angry and mean-spirited homosexuals converged upon
Hamilton Square Baptist Church. Some laid down in the streets in front
of the church to block traffic while others trespassed on the church
property to bang on the front door and several side doors. They blocked
church goers from coming inside.”
Matters went from bad to worse. When Donna McIlhenny (wife of Rev. Chuck McIhenny) tried to enter the church to attend the special service that evening
she was grabbed by a homosexual who temporarily prevented her from
proceeding further. She was only able to go inside after being rescued
by men from the congregation.
At the start of the service the mob of screaming homosexuals began to chant,
probably trying to drown out the worship speakers inside. Then the large
Gothic doors that had been closed to protect the church-goers were
rushed, with the homosexuals pounding on them loudly. Finally, after
a short time, after the police told Pastor David Innes that they would
not be able to protect the Christians, until then the police had mostly
simply monitored the scene and had done almost nothing to maintain
order, the homosexuals broke into the sanctuary.
They threw rocks and eggs at the congregants; then the Christian flag
was torn down and a homosexual flag was put on display. Outside
various concrete benches were broken apart, landscaping was torn up,
and there was additional yelling. Inside, the rioters began to march
toward the pulpit, shouting “We want your children,
give us your children”.
The men of the congregation linked their arms and stood their ground
and, after the police finally made a show of backbone, the homosexuals
backed down. Even then the police simply intervened to stop the
mayhem; the Christians were escorted from the church to safety
but there were no arrests and there was no coverage by the news media.
William Clinton was president at the time and knew about these events
and said nothing and did nothing.
Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Greenwich, Connecticut, April 20, 2006;
reported by the Catholic League. Education center was broken into, statues
of the Virgin Mary, St. Michael, and Joan of Arc were destroyed. Various
slogans, including anti-Semitic statements, were carved into the walls.
Mt. Hope Church, Lansing, Michigan. November 11, 2008.
homosexual anarchists infiltrate church. About a dozen men wearing
conservative business suits and carrying Bibles were able to enter
without suspicion, whereupon they proceeded to disrupt the worship
service by yelling at the congregation, distributing leaflets, and pulling
the fire alarm. The homosexuals inside the church scattered propaganda
leaflets throughout the sanctuary and threw condoms at the congregants.
Up in the balcony a large banner was unfurled with a vulgar statement.
Two female homosexuals rushed the pulpit and began openly kissing
each other as families with kids look on in disbelief. Other members of
the group, Bash Back, also picketed outside and began banging on pails;
they also used a bull horn to shout homosexual slogans such as
“Jesus was a homo.” No arrests were made by the police.
California churches of different denominations, story reported by
Mass Resistance for November 13, 2008, under the title :
Homosexuals begin campaign of terror and violence against
churches in California and across US because of Prop 8
The report begins by noting that almost immediately after Proposition 8
– the anti-gay “marriage” amendment – was overwhelmingly passed
by California voters, homosexual activists began threatening
to burn down churches and [commit] other violence. Homosexuals
sent messages to each other saying: “Burn their f**king churches…”
It did not take long; during the days immediately following the election,
mostly within 24 hours, a number of churches in the state, and some elsewhere,
were under attack. Here are some examples of churches that were hit:
Saddleback Church, Rick Warren, pastor.
Catholic Church, Riverside, California; no other information available.
Our Lady of Angels, Catholic Church, Los Angeles, attacked the next Sunday,
with a homosexual invasion of the sanctuary, much turmoil, and profanities
yelled at parishioners.
A number of Mormon churches were targeted including-
Mormon Temple, Los Angeles, Westwood community. A mob of homosexuals,
estimates vary from 1,000 to as many as 5,000, rioted, screaming, waving signs
in a menacing manner, threatening to storm the building.
Mormon Church, Ventura, California, where 50 homosexuals carrying signs
insulting the Latter-day Saints marched on the building.
Mormon Church near Sacramento was vandalized, spray painted.
There were also various private acts of hate, for example when
a van staffed by female homosexuals parked outside the home
of a Mormon family with their five kids, near San Francisco.
A large sign on the van featured the word “Bigots” with
an arrow pointing to the house. Another incident took place
in Palm Springs where an elderly woman who was carrying a sign
with a prominent cross was assaulted by a gang of homosexuals
who took the sign from her and stomped on it -in front of the crew
from a local TV station. As the Mass Resistance article reported,
this news item, accessible on the Web, included an announcer
who intoned that there’s “a lot of hate by both sides.” Which is
strange since all the overt hate seen on TV footage was only being
expressed by the homosexuals.
There was also a mass protest of about 3000 homosexuals at the national
headquarters of the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City, Utah. The homosexuals
carried insulting signs and spent much of the time shouting.
Park Street Church, Boston; published by Mass Resistance,
May 1, 2009, with national coverage in a Time magazine story.
This historic Conservative Congregationalist church was attacked
by 30 homosexuals on April 28. Events described included:
The homosexuals gathered in Boston Common, across the street
from the church. First there were harangues to the crowd that had
assembled, then a march to the church itself. The homosexuals used
megaphones was they shouted and chanted various homosexual slogans.
At one point the leader of the homosexuals used a bullhorn he had pressed
against a church window to a meeting room filled with communicants.
As one story said, there were loud siren noises and ear-splitting sounds
that disrupted events inside the church. This had the intended effect
of causing fears for their safety on the part of the people in the congregation.
This was followed by passing out literature which proclaimed that
“Jesus was gay.”
As Time reported, while there were police on the scene there were
no arrests despite criminal trespass, intimidation, and harassment.
The homosexuals also “illegally trampled through an adjoining
Revolutionary War-era cemetery in order to be directly outside
the church’s windows.”
Church of Christian Liberty; Arlington Heights, Illinois.
News story published at World Net Daily, October 15, 2011.
Pieces of concrete bricks thrown through windows at
Liberty church school, with a note threatening worse to come
if the church continued to criticize homosexuality.
Mars Hill Church, Portland affiliate, story reported by Religion
News Service on April 25, 2012. A gang of homosexuals which called
itself the “Angry Queers” vandalized the church. stained glass windows
were broken as were other windows. There were other incidents at the church
previously; at its opening in October of 2011 a crowd of homosexuals
standing at the entrance yelled 4-letter words at church members
as they arrived for services.
St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Acushnet, Massachusetts,
May 2012. The church sign outside the building posted the following
message: “Two men are friends, not spouses.” Shortly afterward,
the church was vandalized and calls from homosexuals flooded
the switchboard, each expressing some variant of the sentiment
“we will burn your church to the ground.”
Catholic Archdiocese of Boston; story published at LifeSiteNews,
March 21, 2017. Threats by LGBT activists to carry out acts of
extreme violence unless homosexuals were allowed to march in
St. Patrick’s Day parade. A message to the Archdiocese said
that the Catholic Church in the city could expect “large-scale violence,”
rioting and “possible deaths” if homosexual demands were not met.
These incidents in the United States do not count homosexual attacks
against churches in other countries. Also from National Catholic Weekly
is this commentary about the situation in Europe:
In several European nations in 2014, “pro-family activists who dared to
hold public rallies and marches were attacked by screaming mobs of
homosexuals, who destroyed their signs and other property, simulated
sexual acts, and threw rocks, bottles, and even feces at the
“The homosexuals targeted priests and women in particular, sending several
people to hospitals with injuries from beatings. In one case, the homosexuals
even physically assaulted and spat on a one-year-old baby, and others ripped
pages out of the Bible and simulated wiping their rear ends with it.”
“In all of these cases, police simply stood by and watched as
the assaults continued.”
In case pacifist Christians on the Left believe they are immune
from such things, it should be noted that in August of 2017 an
anti-hate rally was held in Berkeley which was “swarmed” by
anarchist homosexuals, who, anon, proceeded to beat up people.
The story was reported by KDRV television.
The situation in Europe is only getting worse. An Alex Dunham story posted
at Theolocal for April 19, 2013 reported that anarchist homosexuals attacked
a variety of targets in Spain, sometimes mailing dildos packed with
explosives to “high profile Catholic targets.” Among the destinations was
Archbishop Francisco Pérez of Pamplona -the town made famous
by Ernest Hemingway for its “running with the bulls” annual event.
In that case the dildo bomb did not detonate. Another sex toy bomb
was mailed to the headmaster of the Legionnaires of Christ school,
also in Pamplona; the package never reached the school. Instead
it blew up in the post office, injuring a mailman.
Another bomb that didn’t explode was sent to Almudena Cathedral in Madrid.
Greece has been especially hard hit. According to a report at Torno News,
a petrol bomb damaged a Greek Orthodox church in Athens on or just before
August 8, 2016. According to BHMA news service 2016 was a banner
year, with a series of attacks against Greek Orthodox churches all over
the map, including Thessaloniki, the Petraki Monastery, location of
the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece offices, as well as at least
two other churches in Athens. These attacks have consisted of vandalism,
disruption of mass, and arson.
Europe isn’t the only place hit by violent homosexuals. On January 4, 2017,
a Mormon church in Santiago, Chile, was attacked.
