Life Site News reports that two unidentified preachers, one carrying a sign and the other clutching a Bible, were assaulted at Seattle’s gay PrideFest held earlier in the week.

The handmade sign stated “Jesus saves and heals,” and “Repent or else.”

[VIDEO – Warning, violence and profanity]

Caught on amateur video, a man and a woman initially verbally confronted the two men, but the situation rapidly deteriorated as the duo became the target of a torrent of profanities and literally, push came to shove. The two street preachers had been loudly ordered to leave when a man named Jason Queree decided for an unknown reason to discard his shirt and charge the two.

Queree was ultimately convinced to back off, but aa number of other individuals rushed the man with the sign. Queree then joined in the attack on the man, who was already knocked to the ground.

Queree was arrested along with another as yet to be identified individual.
