The GANG’s All Here



God’s Anointed New Generation.

They are among us.

Hundreds of passers by were entertained by a hip hop performance on O’Connell Street yesterday evening. Young Americans handed out flyers promoting a free event due to be held in Liberty Hall (August 4th). It appears the event is being organised by Victory Outreach international, a highly controversial evangelical Christian organisation who were previously exposed in an RTÉ investigations unit report. The event is part of what’s being billed as a ‘European Invasion Tour’ that appears to target young people. Victory Outreach have actively campaigned against LGBT equality and have been accused of exploiting vulnerable people in Ireland and abroad.

    come for the drug rehab, stay for the homophobic bulying then off to raise funds for the tax-dodging directors.

    “While parents of every generation have experienced worry over their young, the peril threatening today’s teens is unparalleled in history. ”

    Black Death, War, Famine, TB and, well… really dozens of millennia of human history aside, like.

      They like a challenge. I have had the occasional misfortune to deal with people of this ilk and they really do seem to feed off hostility. The more they get, the more they feel it necessary to proselytise.

        They get masochistic about it.

        The more opposition, the better they are for spreading Jesus’ word among the heathens. ‘Forgive them, they know not what they do’ pious wankery.

          They actually want you to nail them up there and then, of course they cannot say it but.. it’s in the eyes if you care to look.

            Then I reckon our best bet is to agree with them and then as they finish up get up and speak pure Fr. Jack Hackett madness.

            For there is always time for a good Father Ted quote. Always.

      Ireland is frequently seen as a battleground by the religious right in the US against progressive social policies. The 8th Amendment was largely a reaction to Roe vs. Wade, for example. And of course groups like the Iona Institute and the vote no campaign get tons of cash from the states. This is just one more attempt to keep young people on-side.

      There might be a room 101 in your home that you are unaware of.

      I’d just prefer if they didn’t insist on bringing their patronising frat house party on tour.

      I, for one, would very much rather they f**ked off and became crack addicts – rather than poncing over to my city to try convince people here to ‘tolerate’ me a little less.

    “$30 per person for Airport Pick-ups from DUB”, according to their site.

    A bit steep – someone is making money from this.
