Christian Activist Arrested At Pulse Memorial [VIDEO]

Orlando’s ABC affiliate reports:

A man who protested outside Pulse nightclub Monday following a ceremony marking the anniversary of the attack was handcuffed by Orlando police. Local officials and the community had just finished a remembrance ceremony at the venue, which honored the victims and first responders.

The man, who has not been identified, was part of a group of about three protesters holding anti-gay signs. The crowds chanted, “Love conquers hate,” as the man was placed in handcuffs. Police have not said why they handcuffed the man.

    Why would one even need “faggots” in “hell”? Isn’t the whole place supposed to be on fire?

    • Diogenes Onionpants

      According to Dante, the lowest three levels are frozen ice, so a toasty fire might be appreciated.

        Of course Dante’s information was rather second-hand

            No, a hairy, hot man bear with lots of fur.

      • Natty Enquirer

        Frozen ice is the worst kind.

        • safari

          Wikipedia indicates there are 17 different types of ice. I think all of them, though, qualify as frozen.

          • safari

            Does amorphous ice count as frozen?

          • Bad Tom

            WHAT ABOUT ICE 9?!?

            Since it freezes everything yep, probably.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Doesn’t Esquimaux have 51 different words for “ice”? Maybe there’s no wikipedia in Alaska

          • Natty Enquirer

            Yes, but many of them are combining forms, not unique stems.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Interesting! Sort of like Coptic’s “absolute,” “nominal,” and “pronominal” verb-forms? It is easy to imagine this type of ‘inflection’ or state-grade for nouns, too!

          • Cattleya1

            On what other blog could we get a free lesson in Coptic grammar? Enclitics anyone?

          • Phillip in L.A.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            One thing that amazes and astounds me is how Egyptian verbs could go from a suffix conjugation (in Old Egyptian) to a prefix conjugation (in Coptic), in about 3,500 years or so.

            We actually have the evidence before our eyes-in fact, the longest period of any written language (a little longer than Chinese, iirc) yet we cannot figure this out.

          • Cattleya1

            Every language evolves differently. Look at English and German – one went almost totally analytic and the other (German) stayed very synthetic. Despite a common ancestor 2500 years ago.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            I know, but Coptic is just a later phase of the same language

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Yeah, it’s interesting. I would like to discuss, though, the use of “analytic” and “synthetic” in the linguistic sense you have used–they have been used to mean opposing things by different scholars, iirc.

            I believe Loprieno calls Coptic “analytic,” but it could just as easily be classified as more difficult morpho-phonemically and syntactically, or at least as complex as Middle Egyptian ditto. (See, e.g., Carleton Hodges, “The Linguistic Cycle,” in Afroasiatic Linguistics, Semitics, and Egyptology: Selected Writings of Carleton T. Hodge, Scott Noegel & Alan S. Kaye, eds. [CDL Press 2004], passim.) (Note that the concept of a “language cycle” is still a contentious issue among linguistics scholars.)

            We probably won’t know who was right about this stuff for a long while (if ever)–one still needs to take a longer view, imo. Even something so basic as comparative phonology of Egyptian is at a quite non-advanced level–compared to, say Germanic, as you mentioned, or Slavic; due to the fact that they didn’t write the vowels, it is extremely difficult to posit phonetic correspondences with the certainty of the other languages.

          • Cattleya1

            I think of an analytic language as one where words are not very mutable and sentence position tells the listener the word’s relationship to the words around it. Mandarin and English are 2 good examples. I think of a synthetic language as one where a root has to have significant amendments with prefixes, suffixes, or enclitics to highlight its meaning in a sentence. Dine Bizaad is the most extreme example I can think of. They take a template and fill in around the verb root and can up with complicated one-word sentences. I don’t think there is much trouble calling Ancient Egyptian synthetic even though we don’t have the vowels, glides and glottal stops. Coptic is still way more synthetic than English. I’m having trouble making an argument for analytic there.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            “I’m having trouble making an argument for analytic there.”

            That’s sort-of my point! I mean I understand the terminology, I just think it’s inadequate, or maybe the whole conceptual framework needs to be rethought or overhauled.

            The article I cited by Hodges describes the arguments and previous scholarship on a “linguistic cycle,” where languages supposedly alternate between “sM” [“characterized by complex morphology”], and a presumed earlier stage, where this morphology was formed, which would be predominantly syntactic (Sm). “It took little for someone to assume that this cycle Sm to sM to Sm was part of a repeating alternation between Sm and sM. ” Represented tabularly:
            “[1. Purely hypothetical pre-pIE, early stage: *Sm
            [2. Purely hypothetical pre-pIE, later stage: *sM
            [3. Proto-Indo-European: *Sm
            [4. Classical Languages sM
            [5. Present-day English, etc. Sm]”

            My apologies if you are already familiar with this article (which it sounds like you might be).

            The problem is, I don’t agree with many of the assumptions which led to the development of this theory. For instance, it is “based on the assumption that present-day Indo-European languages are predominantly syntactic.”

            But is this true for Balto-Slavic languages? No. They are complex morphologically; the syntax is free. Perhaps each language goes through its own cycle? (This was the problem–that no one could prove the cycle in any given language, because the written histories were too short. Enter Egyptian, with a written history of 4,000+ years. Hodges claims to prove the cycle exists on the basis of Egyptian.)

            [Edited to add: Hodges claims that within the history of Egyptian, the cycle is proven as follows:
            [1. Proto-Afroasiatic *Sm
            [2. Old Egyptian sM
            [3. Late Egyptian Sm
            [4. Coptic sM.]

            Do you agree with this statement: “there is good evidence that early Chinese had a greater degree of morphology than does classical Chinese”? ]

            What is your take on all this? 🙂

          • Cattleya1

            I find the whole topic of language evolution fascinating. I do not honestly know enough about early Chinese to have an opinion. I do know that I hesitated on citing Mandarin as an analytic language because of the incredible burden of complex idiom which you have to learn to understand it – not unlike Arabic which is decidedly synthetic. I am totally at a loss to understand how some people can be so confident in their translations of Ancient Egyptian – absent anyone who actually knows the language. I think there are too many pieces of the jigsaw puzzle missing. I am a retired doc and I can’t tell you how many times I relied on a 10-year-old to translate a medical interview – and how many times they got it wrong. How do we know that the person who did the translation on the Rosetta Stone was any good? Some times I despair of ever knowing if we can get inside the minds of other people – what the hell is it with ergativity? Do people who speak Ergative languages think fundamentally differently than those of us who speak nomnitave-accusative languages?

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Yes, well, translations of Ancient Egyptian are not exact science–they hover more in the realm of artistry and imaginativeness. Since we do not understand the verbal system well, and since there are no vowels, it is definitely a lot of guess work and interpolation.

            You make a great point about getting inside the heads of others. This is one of my fundamental issues with Polotsky’s treatment of Coptic (and Loprieno’s of Egyptian more as a whole). The way we NOW analyze language has nothing to do with how EGYPTIANS saw or learned their own language; I assume they would be baffled by adjectival vs. adverbial predicate, theme vs. rheme, etc.
            I think people who speak highly-inflected languages do ‘think differently’ from those of us who speak more syntactic languages, but how to characterize that “differentness” is another question entirely. But I am convinced that difference does NOT extend to feelings! 🙂

          • Cattleya1

            I think we are all ultimately solipsists – seeking meaning in a world of other people whose feelings and meaning we have difficultly understanding.

      • JWC

        could be a myriad of reason but i am sorta thinking one of them was not “Hello Officer how are you today”

        • TampaDink

          I suspect that you are right.

        • Phillip in L.A.

          It is standard procedure (and indeed required by some States’ criminal codes and perhaps by the federal constitution’s ‘due process’ clause ) for the police to inform an arrestee of the charges against her/him.

          The only exception I know of is when the police haven’t yet made up the reason why they claim to be arresting someone.

      • TampaDink

        If it were legal to arrest people for being assholes, our overcrowded prisons would be bursting at the seams.

    This was an altogether fitting reminder of the mentality that brought us the horrific Pulse massacre. It is superstition that makes humans animals, that throws people off buildings because they have the temerity to love someone they are not supposed to love; that guns down beautiful men in women in their youth because they are a despised minority; that makes their deities into haters of lovers. This is not an accident. This is as it should be. Remember who murdered those beautiful young people in Orlando. It was the true believers.

      christians are horrid, violent terrorists

      • Gigi

        They’re the original radical fundamentalist terrorists/mass murderers. They perfected it long before it was even on the radical jihadis’ radar.

      • If I had one genie wish, it would be this, as the world awakens on Wednesday, as the sun crawls across the earth’s face, religion would vanish. A new age of science and empathy would take its place.

        • vorpal 😼

          Exactly this. Science gives us wonderful tools to improve our lives and explore and better understand ourselves, the universe, and reality.

          Religion gives us this: the active celebration of the vicious murder of 49 beautiful people that would still be alive if it weren’t for religious superstition in the first place.

          • prixator

            Religion plus firearms is even worse.

            In London, 3 men without firearms killed 8 people but, in Orlando, 1 man with firearms kills 49 people.

            Crazy!

      What happened that night is exactly what they’ve been calling for and continue to call for.

  • j.martindale

    This was an altogether fitting reminder of the mentality that brought us the horrific Pulse massacre. It is superstition that makes humans animals, that throws people off buildings because they have the temerity to love someone they are not supposed to love; that guns down beautiful men in women in their youth because they are a despised minority; that makes their deities into haters of lovers. This is not an accident. This is as it should be. Remember who murdered those beautiful young people in Orlando. It was the true believers.

    • People like this are horrible. The people at the memorial have enough grief without this bullshit. Some of them are probably Christians and are worried that this bullshit is actually true. But is anyone going to be converted because of this thuggery? No. The opposite. Shit like this is why people are fleeing churches in record numbers. And they are fleeing fastest from the “liberal” and “moderate” churches for not taking a real stand against this shit. (Instead they are all sidestepping lbgt issues as much as they can to avoid a split. What a joke. There’s not going to be enough church left to split by the time they take a position.)

    wanna make a bet these protesting bastards are from the westboro baptist church? muthafuckas!

    • Stubenville

      Actually probably not. Those hateful Westboro Baptist members are well versed in the law, and know how to be maximally offensive without getting themselves arrested.

  • Take a picture of this hate….and …the person holding the sign. Name him or her.
    There is NO Biblical passage that states that homosexuals will burn in hell….using the word “faggot” is insulting and abusive.

  • Sashineb

    GOOD. I am so glad to hear that one of these crackpots got the attention they deserve. I hope the day comes when the rest of them get the same treatment.

      I noticed that, too. I wonder if HRC knows their symbol is being used like that?

  • coram nobis

    Meanwhile, to contrast between having a Maximum President and a PM, Theresa May gets taken down a few pegs. John Oliver:

    … Meanwhile, there are rumors of a leadership challenge from within her own party by Boris Johnson, a grown man who perpetually looks like a seven-year-old who just spun in circles for three minutes and is about to throw up.

    “British politics has a proud tradition of having all candidates stand together on the stage when the results are announced,” Oliver explained, in reference to the many “joke” candidates who ran for parliament. “Which means that on election night, as her party was dealt a massive blow, the prime minister had to stand on stage alongside Elmo, who got three votes, as well as Howling Laud Hope of the Monster Raving Loony party, who got 119 votes.”

    Oliver went on to introduce the candidate Lord Buckethead, the recipient of 249 votes in May’s Maidenhead constituency, who seemed to elicit a subtle eye-roll from the prime minister.

    https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/jun/12/john-oliver-theresa-may-lord-buckethead-brexit

    Lord Buckethead may not be another Jethro Q. Walrustitty but he did get to share the stage. And in Maidenhead, yet. We’re in deep Monty Python territory.

      Are you suggesting it didn’t work on you? You didn’t read “Faggots burn in hell” and immediately become a Christian?
      It’s like their marketing strategy needs improvement or something.

  • Ningsisa

    Regardless of what your faith background is be sure to challenge Christians who are outraged at this guy and ask whether they BELIEVE what he is preaching, even if they don’t like the way he said it or the circumstances. If you believe gays are going to hell and go to a church that preaches this, you’re not much better than this asshole. You’re only upset at the bad press and the fact that your terrible beliefs were put on display. And I say this as a Christian.

  • BearDAD

    These same loud mouth bigots with bullhorns were at the Harvey Milk Festival in Sarasota last month. Glad someone finally shut them up.

    • Gianni

      Unless he’s using the British meaning – a bundle of sticks.

      • The definition of “faggot” is in the fine print on his sign. I’m going to assume he thought he was being clever.

        • Gianni

          Aren’t we always admonished to read the fine print? I just didn’t bother. I have to agree with your assumption. 🙂 Nothing quite like a clever fundie when he’s insulting someone.

      • JDS

        I think he is way to stupid for that.

  • KQCA

    Anyone still wondering why so many people dislike evangelical Christians?

    These Christian activists are just following the teachings of Jesus. We all know what Jesus taught about homosexuality. Oh really? Never mind.
