Christine Weick, a Christian protester, reportedly stood outside an Econo Lodge hotel in Sevierville, Tennessee, on May 8 holding a sign that read: "Thank your mom TODAY for not being GAY."

Two young women held signs nearby to counter the message, the Friendly Atheist notes. Their signs read: "Not What Jesus Would Do" and "Love Trumps Hate."

Weick wrote on Facebook: "Hotel just called the police to have me removed," Weick wrote on Facebook that day. "Officer was polite and informed me I had the right to stand where I was. God is good. Always had favor with the police. Thank you."

In the past, Weick has been caught on video yelling at Katy Perry’s father at a radio station and protesting an Easter egg hunt and an Easter Bunny.

And this isn't the first Weick held up an anti-LGBT sign on Mother's Day; she also did so in 2014, 24 Hour News 8 reported at the time.

That year, as a reporter was trying to interview Weick, another woman, identified as Jessica Prince, threw a slushie at Weick.

Prince reportedly yelled profanities and made obscene gestures at Weick who threatened to use a can of pepper spray on Prince.

The two women argued, and Prince told the news station: "Can you leave the slushie part out? I don’t want to go to jail."

The police came to the scene, and Weick said that she wanted to press charges against Prince, but it’s not clear if that happened.

"Truth is hate to those who hate the truth, and this is the truth," Weick told 24 Hour News 8 at the time. "And they don’t like it and they label me a hater, and it is not that at all. I love them enough to tell them they are on the wrong path."

Counter-protesters showed up with pro-LGBT signs, and drivers honked their responses to the signs; some were not happy with Weick.

"I’m gay and I have children," one female driver yelled. "And I think you’re sick."
