Subject: 200,000 Gay Protestors to Disrupt General Conference

I was speaking with a good friend today who's dad works
for the Salt Lake City Police Department. My friend asked
him how things were going for him at work and he said that
he'd been putting in extra hours doing riot control
training. He asked what on earth were they doing that for,
and he told him that the entire police force was going
through an additional 10 hours of mandatory riot control
training because the city is bracing for an influx of 10,000
to 200,000 Gay protesters that want to disrupt this coming
General Conference.

I asked how does your dad know how many people will be
showing up. He said that the protest permits had already
been applied for and that the police in doing a little
intelligence gathering off of the groups websites, found out
that they are "strenuously striving" to get as
many people there as possible. The 200,000 number is the
goal that they want to have on Conference weekend.

But what really worries the police are that the gay protest
groups have aligned themselves with a couple of anarchist
groups who make it their goal in life to cause as much
trouble as possible. These are the groups that show up at
protests and you have anarchists running through the streets
throwing bricks, Molotov Cocktails, and what not, breaking
windows, burning cars and businesses, and attacking innocent
citizens and by standers. Their only goal is to provoke a
reaction from the police and the citizenry. Can you imagine
this going on while Church members are standing in line
waiting to enter the Conference Center?
His dad further said that the Salt Lake Police in
discussing what happened in California with the police there
were informed of some of the inflammatory tactics that the
gay protesters used down there including ripping up Book of
Mormons, having people parade around wearing only temple
garments or wearing them in comb with typical homosexual
drag queen clothing, WOW WHAT A SIGHT.

Anyways, the police are planning on canceling all leave to
have every officer on hand for the conference, and depending
on how many people start showing up and call in the Utah
National Guard. Unless something unforeseen happens this is
shaping up to be a major event for the police, the Church,
and all major news broadcasters.

Please keep Salt Lake and its saints in your prayers. I have faith that nothing will stop General Conference from happening but what goes on before and after....please ask Heavenly Father to keep those who are attending safe.

Wow, that's scary. I will keep it all in my prayers. Hopefully it's a lot of hoopla and nothing will come of it.
