PHILADELPHIA – Four Christians were thrown out of Veteran’s Stadium during the Philadelphia Phillies’ first ever “Gay Community Day” on August 12. The Christians were escorted out of the park after displaying a large banner from their center field seats, at the bottom of the first inning, which read, “HOMOSEXUALITY IS SIN, CHRIST CAN SET YOU FREE”.

Larry Felzer, organizer of “Gay Community Day”, tossed out the first pitch and was amongst hundreds of gays and lesbians infiltrating the park Tuesday night in a further attempt to advance the acceptance of their ungodly and destructive lifestyles. As families and children watched, one man provocatively danced and twirled an oversized rainbow flag while others cheered him on.

Approximately 7 minutes after the banner was unfurled, Linda Beckman, Nancy Major, Susan Startzell, and Michael Marcavage were told by stadium security, “The executives said the banner must come down!” Even though there were other, larger, banners being displayed with a variety of messages; the four Christians were ordered to take their banner down or it would be confiscated based upon its’ message.

“We were there to declare the WORD OF GOD while bringing a message of HOPE to the homosexuals in attendance,” said Michael Marcavage, a field preacher with the Philadelphia-based REPENT AMERICA.

“The banner was extremely effective and was seen by thousands, we are earnestly praying for all those who desire freedom from this sinful lifestyle,” said Linda Beckman.

Strangely, the Christians were refunded their money and given four free tickets to another Phillies game of their choosing. They intend on using the tickets to once again bring the WORD OF GOD to the fans and attendees at the stadium later this season.

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
