Lanny Roseland, a.k.a. the "right-wing early-bird vandal"
:::: UPDATE :::: Lonny Roseland, anti-gay church vandal, has an outrageous Facebook profile

Remember that guy who kept writing shit like "Church of Sodom" and "Church of Gomorrah" on Maple Grove's Pilgrims United Church because it supports gay marriage? He was caught on camera egging the church on Sunday morning (watch the footage here), and, thanks to a number of tips, later identified by police.

THE BACKSTORY: Progressive Maple Grove church vandalized again: "Gay Pride? NO! Shameful Sodomites!"

His name is Lonny Roseland, and since he's fond of vandalizing the church early in the morning, he told Fox 9 he'd like to be called the "right-wing early-bird vandal."

Roseland admits he's the man caught on camera Sunday morning, and told Fox the "main reason" he keeps vandalizing the church is because "I am definitely against gay marriage, of course. Although, I know I can't change it."

"Show me in the Bible where gay persons can get married in the eyes of Yahweh," Roseland said. "If they were atheists, I would not have had a problem with them -- but they call themselves the United Church of Christ. They consider themselves a religious organization."

Roseland says he has no plans to vandalize the church again. Of course, we'd be surprised if he said anything else now that his case has been turned over to prosecutors for possible gross misdemeanor vandalism charges.

The only crime this guy made was not choosing the right way to make his statement. 

  Truth is... politicians are steering the propaganda into the public minds.  How religion ever got to be a part of it was/is promoting gay rights.... (If you are 5 years old or older...think back to all the catholic priests with their sex of young boys in the news).

"Right Wing Early Bird Vandal" has a certain ring to it, but I'll stick with "Obvious Closet Queen Troubled By Own Homo Erotic Desires Lonely Redneck Guy".

How about this instead: "Early-worm-doesn't-get-the-bird vandal." Get a girlfriend, Lonny, or MYOB about other people who are far less repulsive than you are.

Does disagreeing with homosexuality make someone a homophobic? Do they have a fear of gay people just because potentially they don't morally agree with it?

Fact: Lanny rocks high tops.

Fact. Lanny throws eggs like baseballs.

Fact: Lanny rocks sleeveless Bronos warm up gear.

Conclusion: Three sport athletes "aren't down with that".

The unsatisfying part is that the church will probably forgive him and not bother to press charges because 1) that's what actual Christians would do and 2) bothering with a guy like this is pointless anyway.

He is bad at egging. ONE at a time? He could have fit the whole carton on his lap, flung them all at the target one right after another and been done in 10 seconds. He is not only ignorant, he is a bad criminal besides. Yeah. He's a closet case for sure.

Is it just me, or does it seem like people with the most vehemently negative opinions regarding gays tend to be the least likely to get any...hetero or otherwise? I'm just sayin'.

Seriously? Is this guy allowed to breed? Look at him. He looks fresh out of his mommy's basement. Just another guy that hates himself for being Gay and can't admit it. I hope they lock him up.

another person ready to claim his 15 minutes of "fame" - He came up with his own "vandal handle", I wonder if he's thought of what he'd like his theme song to be.

The perfect example of a typical Republican, a stupid weirdo filled with hate.

Oh Lanny, you're not fooling anyone.  We all know that as soon as you get home from trying unsuccessfully to intimidate these people with vandalism, that you immediately go to your stash of gay porn mags under your bed.  Eggs and spray paint aren't going to make those feelings go away.  So next time you sneak into the leather bar late at night, and wake up the next morning in a motel room next to a naked fella, don't choke back your sobs and turn your feelings into rage against a church that is simply defending love for all people--you put that wig, XXL dress, and size 12 heels on and you strut your stuff, honey!  You'll feel so much better being the true Lanny that we all know you are.

.....(fast forward to present time) now for the last few years... review the news as see their movement toward the churches.  

Of course only the "so called" Gay people are going to make negative comments and anti "gay" (like me) are going to support the right to have your opinion mean something even if it isn't popular in a certain "gay" forum.

  I have been shut down from making anti "gay" comments in the past but I constantly see pro "gay" comments all the time.  If this isn't political than I don't know what is.... and many people eat it up like a daily bowl of Campbell's Soup for what ails ya.

  Sure they mingle into the community and try to make friends on occasion outside their circle... why not?  For the same reason to mingle in churches and parade down streets ....to try to make their psycho babble heard.

@k2yeb No, but "disagreeing" with homosexuality makes it sound like it's a choice, and I think science has pretty much determined that one either is or isn't a homosexual based on heredity. So,how can one "disagree" with something that isn't a choice in the first place?

porfavor51

@k2yeb no... absolutely not.  I don't agree with it or the publicity it gets and it is only by obeying the law that I just watch other people show their immorality and disrespect for what God has provided and the purpose behind it.  Anyone want to test my reasons.. go ahead but make no mistake... I paid my dues to this country for your right to speak your peace... but that also entitles me to speak my response to your accusations.

@k2yeb Does someone saying that they disagree with your existence constitute bigotry? If you can answer this question, then you have a chance of getting it. (Hint: the most vehemently anti-gay people most often have homosexual feelings themselves.)

@Justin Falken In other words, "I'm a backward hillbilly, but it's not like I'm going to do anything crazy because of it."

@Justin Falken  Hey, that's okay Justin.  The gays don't really like you either.  And neither do the straights. lol

@swmnguy I would actually find it quite satisfying to see christians act christ-like to someone who seems to typify when those of us don't believe, but respect the bible, see as your average hypocritical evangelical.

@j.reiter @ludwitr Instead, I clicked on yours. It's filled with all kinds of bigotry and backwardness and awful sentiments. (All riddled with misspellings and bad grammar, and general rank stupidity, of course.) You're just a terrible person, and an idiot.

Here's just one of many examples: "Looks like I hit your Jew nerve; the risk of exposure, now is too high for you.  I know that you are a Jew because only a Jew could hate white people as much as you do; take a chill pill racist."

I always love these "Let's talk about my bigoted hatreds and seething rage more politely, please!" statements.

@ludwitr, this guy is the most toxic person on this blog.  He is rude, extremely prejudice and anti-white.  His code-word for white is "Republican."    He basically destroys any chance of dialogue by shouting "Racist!" at everything.   ..don't believe me, click on his name and view his profile, there is absolutely zero instances of him being civil on this blog.
