Pastor Tim Hortons Le****n Safety, A pastor who opposed a lsbn couple kissing, as he mingled with heterosexuals in southwestern Ontario Tim Hortons says he now fears for his safety amid plans for a protest against the removal of the couple from the restaurant.
Eric Revie assistant pastor of the Church I welcome the Good News Community in Blenheim, said he has received thousands of emails and hundreds of phone calls from the news that Patricia Riley Duckworth and Pattenden were asked to leave only the city Hortons Tim Revie last month after a manager complained about his behavior on a bench outside the restaurant.
Revie said that e-mail and phone calls that contained “a lot of hate.
Protesters are planning to hold a sitting on Thursday at Tim Hortons Blenheim only on the actions of the restaurant.
“I’m a little worried,” said Revie. “We will have people on the premises of the church, if someone comes to trying to do damage to the building.”
The father of four said he also fears for the safety of their children, adding that has been in constant contact with the police.
Revie said the incident has been blown out of proportion.
“I’m trying to put this behind me. For me, it was matter of gay rights,” said Revie. “My understanding is that he was a boy-girl couple. A girl who was halfway between the other girl looked like a child. They are apparently a couple in love, that’s fine. Affection Seeing young children in front of a family restaurant was inappropriate to do. ”
Revie said the couple’s public display of affection includes what he called extreme and passionate kisses participation of their languages. He said it was a horse from the other’s lap.
“They had their hands on parts of the body that should not have,” said Revie. “I worry that someone behaves that way in a public place. If the couple is gay or if the couple is heterosexual, never mind.”
However, Duckworth and Pattenden said they were out of hand and enjoying a coffee when they kissed on the cheek – and nothing else.
We were not doing or anything, “Duckworth said CBC Windsor morning shift on Tuesday.” We were not doing anything grotesque. ”
Duckworth said the mother of Pattenden was sharing a table with the couple to not have dreamed of doing anything offensive.
She said the manager told them that their conduct was unacceptable and they had five minutes to leave or police would be called. So they went.
In an email to CBC News this week, Alexandra Cygal, Tim Hortons public affairs manager, said “The customer behavior goes beyond public displays of affection, and did other guests feel uncomfortable.”
“The administration has apologized to Riley and Patricia and invited them to return to his restaurant,” wrote Cygal.
Duckworth said Tuesday he has not received a personal apology from Tim Hortons.
In a press release, Duckworth and Pattenden Revie accused of looking down and then holding a prayer circle in the parking lot. Revie said neither incident occurred.
“I’m not against the gay community,” he said Revie. “I’m not against them as individuals. I do not agree with his lifestyle, and they know it. I’m trying to understand where they come from. I get to them through Jesus Christ. I want to see God touch their lives and the impact of their lives. ”
But Revie, believes the couple said violated their parental rights.
“I’m a protective parent. I think it’s my right to protect my children and protect them from things that I consider inappropriate to do,” he said. “But I have said that they have no rights, ignore and go.”
