Washington Blade

With bright red shirts and blaring religious music, Christian protesters mingled with attendees of the Charlotte Pride festival Saturday, the Charlotte Observer reported. “We don’t enjoy getting cussed out,” said one conservative activist , Shanna Carlan of Matthews. After a pause, she added, “Our flesh doesn’t enjoy that, but for the cause of Jesus, it’s worth it.” Those attending the festival sometimes debated and other times just ignored the protesters, according to the Observer. “Do something constructive with your time instead of telling us we’re going to hell,” Sherry Welpe of Charlotte told the protesters.
