San Francisco Intollerant?

More than 25,000 evangelical Christian youth landed in San Francisco for a two-day rally at AT&T Park against "the virtue terrorism" of popular culture recently. They were greeted by an official city condemnation and a clutch of protesters who said their event amounted to a "fascist mega-pep rally." Read the story here. "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 wants to unleash a "blitz" of youth pastors into the communities to do everything from work with the homeless to find new ways to bring others to Christ. How could any city be against that? Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, who told counterprotesters at City Hall 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." Disgusting? It sounds like Sodom and Gomara. It is intersting to me how people who aren't followers of Jesus want us to be tollerant, yet they don't want to tollerate us! Kudos to The San Francisco Chronicle for calling the city out on their hypocrisy! Read about it here. Here is what they said:
The young people who came to San Francisco to affirm their faith and enjoy a day of rock music deserved better. They deserved to be welcomed by a city that was as tolerant and progressive as its sanctimonious supervisors like to profess.
I pray we believers will treat groups we disagree with with more Christ-like love. What do you think?

Great post. The board of supervisors have been laughed at by locals there for years. It's amazing they keep electing such radicals. I almost think they do it for the laugh factor. They really only want tolerance for themselves and those that are not threatening to them. How inconsistent.

I agree that the city was being hypocritical, but that's exactly what we see from the "establishment" in some places these days. I have to say that I personally think that Ron Luce should change the name of his campaign (or blitzes or whatever), and even the philosophy behind them. "Battle Cry for a Generation" is just asking for marginalization and (in the case of SF, outright hatred).
