But, as Bilerico reports, the leaders of the local church Dove Ministries, are not only not having it, they are in the middle of creating an increasingly scary anti-gay campaign against Lowe.
First, Dove Ministries — known for being politically active — placed a sign reading “No Homo Mayor” in front of the Dove World Outreach Center church. Now, with the approval of the Rev. Terry Jones, the senior pastor of that church, Pastor Wayne Sapp has created a video attacking Lowe and all gay people, saying:
Here in Gainesville, they’re getting ready to have a run-off election between two candidates, and one of them is openly a homo, gay, fag — whatever you want to call him. We got one running for mayor of Gainesville, trying to convert Gainesville into Homoville. We can’t have it.
The video had originally been posted to YouTube but was removed for terms of service violations. Watch the video above and you’ll see why.
