Last night while I was preaching at church, I mentioned that I was out soul-winning, and had one of these loving people tell me, "F*** you. If there is a Hell, I hope you burn in it, and you should have your kids taken away from you because your beliefs are child abuse." 3 1/2 hours after telling that story from the pulpit, I get a knock at the door from 2 police officers and 2 CPS workers at about 11:45pm.
They showed up on my street at about 10:15pm. The reason I know is that I was out doing my evening run and saw the 3 police cars pull up. Then on my next lap I saw the police talking to a couple of people in plain clothes who turned out to be the CPS workers (Child Protective Services). I didn't think anything of it at the time because they were parked all the way down the street so I had no reason to think they were there for me. For some bizarre reason they waited about an hour and a half to pull me out of bed at almost MIDNIGHT after I had already been asleep in bed. Why wait till midnight? To catch me disoriented and off my guard?
I came to the door rubbing my eyes, and I said to them, "Sorry, I just need a minute to wake up. I was already in bed for the night." The officer apologized and said that "these people" needed to talk to me. They identified themselves as being from CPS, and that they were responding about certain accusations that were made. I asked who had made the accusations, and they said that they were not allowed to tell me.
"To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him." - Acts 25:16
I then said to them, "Well, I am not interested in talking to you then. Thank you and good night." They didn't say anything else to me as I went back into my house and headed for bed.
There isn't any doubt about where this is coming from. I am constantly receiving these threats from angry homos who hate my preaching of God's word. Here are a couple of examples. These are comments left on my sermons "Being a Psalm 23 Husband," my sermon on birth control, and many others:
Not to mention the fact that I had just received a verbal threat to have my children taken away by CPS, which I had just mentioned from the pulpit less than 4 hours before they showed up at my house:
