Tim Hortons protest hits snag as lesbian and gay community back pastor | Holy Post | National Post
A small-town Pentecostal pastor has formed an unlikely alliance with members of the gay and transgendered community who say he is being harassed and threatened by social activists who have staged a massive protest, after he complained to a coffee shop manager that a couple he thought was a young boy and girl, but turned out to be two women, were making out in front of his children.
Reverend Eric Revie, assistant pastor at the Pentecostal Glad Tidings Community Church in Blenheim, Ont., 100 km east of Windsor, said he has no problem with gay couples showing affection in public. Instead, he said he complained because the couple, whatever their orientation, were engaged in an inappropriately heavy make out session in front of his three-year-old son at Tim Hortons.
He has drawn support from members of the local of the gay and transgendered community who say the barrage of angry emails, threatening phone calls and protests against the gay-friendly church and coffee shop are misguided and detracting from legitimate cases of homophobia in the small community.
Does that matter?
Do/did you let your 3 year old watch people get their freak on?
Tims is known for having lots of cameras - The couple are going to the CHRC??? - Then the video can be called to show what transpired.
That is if the CHRC has the authority to issue a subpoena to TH for a copy of the video.
Reason is a company can refuse to provide unless ordered by a court. They are well within their legal rights to do so.
Their (TH Lawyer)would advise not to release unless ordered by the courts.
Many companies do this now due to the possibility of infringing on others rights etc. This became the new norm after that girl was murdered by her mother in NS a few years ago - a local convenience store turned over video - willingly to the police - Lawyers now ask for court orders.
Just the way things are nowadays.
At my local Tim's the kid would see hookers out the window. Wanna come and run them off?
Many Tims form what I can recall out here have them outside - Staff safety for one -
Great, thanks Goober. For the record, I hadn't formed an opinion on the issue due to the lack of details (I hate he said she said). I just found the apparent formation of one interesting enough to remark on.
