The case of an assault against a young Christian by a homosexual in San Francisco is garnering national headlines. On November 14, Promised Land Fellowship church sent 13 members to the Castro District of San Francisco, a neighborhood known for its large homosexual population. The young people gathered at a street corner, joined hands, and began singing "Amazing Grace."
During an interview on Fox network's The O'Reilly Factor, Christine Cloud described the group's intentions. "We are not trying to convert gay people into straight people, but we are down there telling them about Jesus Christ in hopes that they would have that revelation," she explains.
Cloud says an angry homosexual grabbed her Bible. She then describes what happened when she asked the man to return it. "And he turned around, and he said no, and he hit me upside the head with the Bible, knocking me to the ground, and began to kick my legs," she recounts.
The police were nearby, according to Cloud, and they sprang into action. " The police took him into custody, and they came up to me and they asked me if I wanted to press charges against this man, and I said, 'No, tell him that I forgive him,'" she notes.
Members of Promised Land Fellowship go to the Castro District on a regular basis to evangelize the area.
