Gays Smoke-Bombed in Lithuania

Timothy Kincaid

October 26th, 2007


As we have discussed before, the international anti-gay group Watchmen on the Walls has been wielding influence in Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Russia. They also enjoy the support of influential American preachers such as Ken Hutcherson and are seeking to import their violent brand of homophobia into areas of the United States which have large immigrant populations from those areas.

Now the BBC is reporting more violence out of that part of Europe:

An annual gay rights conference in the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius, was attacked with smoke bombs, after a rally in the city was banned.

The decent thing would be for those involved with the Watchmen to condemn this act of terrorism. They won’t.

The decent thing would be for those who associate with Ken Hutcherson and Scott Lively to disavow their tactics and their complicity in acts of violence. They won’t.
