Fayetteville’s NBC affiliate reports:
A Fayetteville Baptist Church is attaching controversial pamphlets to people’s homes, voicing their opinions on homosexuality. “I was just offended that they would be going door-to-door in this community with that information. I think most neighbors were pretty offended,” Fayetteville Resident, Joanna McCusker said.
Some Fayetteville residents up in arms as flyers addressing the topic of homosexuality are attached to doors in the Historic District neighborhood. “I’ve had religious pamphlets dropped off, but nothing like that,” Fayetteville resident, Joan Sirlin, said.
The pamphlet asks the question, “Does God love Homosexuals?” The answer given says, “This is a flawed question, there are no such things as Homosexuals.” Residents tells us a large group, including children, from the Lighthouse Baptist Church are behind the message. “There was a young boy who was attaching some sort of literature to our door. It’s very sad that they’re using children to promote their message,” McCusker said.

Last week, Joseph Duggar revealed he’s courting Kendra Caldwell. It only took days for controversy to follow. 22-year-old Joseph and 18-year-old Kendra met through church, and the Duggars famously lean quite conservative. But even by far-right standards, Kendra’s family’s stance on homosexuality is a bit shocking.
Kendra’s father, Paul Caldwell, is a pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. According to local reports, his parish is responsible for distributing controversial pamphlets door-to-door around the community.
Paul Caldwell reportedly declined to respond in person, but responded to media via text with a decidedly mixed message. “Our church loves the LGBT community, hence the reason we have decided since Spring 2014 to reach out to them. This is just another avenue we are trying,” he wrote. “To them it is simply a reminder that God loves them, and if I were to truly love them then I must tell them the truth.”
Local resident Joanna McCusker countered, “If you read their literature you’ll see that they don’t actually believe that there are such thing as gay people — it’s almost a science-fiction idea that they have.”

Two years ago opposition to the ordinance was spearheaded by former Family Research Council director Josh Duggar, who was later exposed as a “porn-addicted” incestuous child molester.
