Video: Gay/Lesbian Group Leads Protest in Tupelo

TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – A Tupelo based group known for its calls for national boycotts and protests found itself on the receiving end of a protest today. Members of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender community walked the sidewalks outside the American Family Association Friday afternoon.  The marchers say they want to draw attention to the AFA for its promotion of what they call hate towards the homosexual community.  AFA has long been known for its opposition to homosexual activism in politics and popular culture. Ironically, the group today says it respects the AFA’s right to its religious views on homosexuality but disagrees with the AFA using what it calls distortion of statistics and use of discredited reports to support its views.
