35 same-sex couples got married in Charlotte, NC, outside the local register's office on Monday, October 13, 2014. Unfortunately, their festive day was marred by a small number of protesters from Operation Save America, including Flip Benham:
Three anti-LGBT protesters were present outside the register’s office, including well-known street preacher and convicted stalker Flip Benham. He interrupted several couples’ weddings as supporters held up a large rainbow flag to block his view. Another protester waved a bible in the air as he screamed several profanities and vulgarities. He was asked by sheriff’s deputies to tone it down or leave. He opted for the latter. Despite the protesters, those gathered celebrated at each of the several weddings held outside the register’s office.Can you imagine if gay activists began disrupting others' weddings?
