Roseville High's Protesters

What the hell kind of purpose does this serve?

Two anti-gay protesters greeted students at Roseville High School Thursday. The pair denounced homosexuality and called for an end to school-sanctioned groups such as the Gay-Straight Alliance.

Protesters Luke Otterstad of Placerville and Tim Bueler of Rohnert Park were positioned directly across the street from Roseville High as students arrived for the first day of classes Thursday morning.

Carrying signs and banners with slogans such as "Homosexuality is sin" and "Gays hate God," the pair said the demonstration is part of a regional tour to promote their message. "We want to get homosexuality out of our public schools and we're touring Northern California schools to do that," Bueler said.

Bueler and Otterstad complied with city laws and remained across the street from students, staying in position through the noon student lunch period.

No, really, you tell me: what purpose does this serve other than intimidation and hatred. Nothing constructive at all.

I suppose I'm asking too much by asking pro-hate groups to show some logic.
