An unidentified Christian preacher was attacked by Seattle Pridefest participants on June 30. The incident ended with the preacher's sign being destroyed and the preacher himself being pummeled.
In a recently released video (below), two Christian preachers stood in a park near the gay pride march in Seattle. One preacher held a sign that read “Jesus saves and heals,” and “Repent or else.” The second preacher held a bible and wore a Trust Jesus” T-shirt.
There were verbal exchanges between the preachers and a group of male and female gay-rights advocates, including a bald, heavy-set man who took off his shirt and repeatedly had to be held back from attacking the preachers.
After a group of women tried unsuccessfully to take away the preacher's sign, a group of men pulled the sign off its pole and the crowd applauded.
Shortly after the sign was taken away, the preacher struggled with another gay-rights advocate about his sign poll until they both fell to the ground.
That is when the bald, heavy-set man sucker-punched the preacher and hit him repeatedly while he was on the ground.
The melee quickly broke up after people started yelling that the police were coming. By the time two police officers arrived, the heavy-set man had departed the scene.
According to KOMO-TV, the heavy-set man was identified as Jason Queree, who was arrested. Reports say Queree has been arrested 29 times since 1995 for nine felonies and 12 misdemeanors.
