Unfettered Disgust

Pro Ecclesia has the details here!

The shocking honesty:
"Battle Cry for a Generation" is led by a 44-year-old Concord native, Ron Luce, who wants "God's instruction book" to guide young people away from the corrupting influence of popular culture.

Luce, whose Teen Mania organization is based in Texas, kicked off a three-city "reverse rebellion" tour Friday night intended to counter a popular culture that he says glamorizes violence and sex. The $55 advance tickets for two days of musical performances and speeches were sold out, but walk-up admission was available for $199.

That's bad news to Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, who told counterprotesters at City Hall on Friday that while such fundamentalists may be small in number, "they're loud, they're obnoxious, they're disgusting, and they should get out of San Francisco." (Emphasis in Jay's original post)
May they rejoice! Mr. Leno defames These young people because of their love for Christ. He hates their witness to our Lord! They share in Christ's suffering by their endurance of his tirade. The reign of God is their's!

As for the Golden Gate City, I begin to see Nathaniel's point. Can anything good come out of San Francisco? Besides L., of course!
