I know that it's only a few minutes before the planned protest, but the best
thing we can do is to pray for their hearts to be turned around, their eyes
and ears to be opened to the love of God, that their warped doctrine would
be wiped away. Fear and anger, the responses I see on this list, feed only
more into their message. We should respond to them the way any loving
person would to a misguided fool, just ignore them. They will reap their
harvest when they meet God face to face. And I think His retribution will
far outshadow anything we could think to do.
