TORONTO, Ont. – A gay couple has spoken out after some of their neighbours thought a church group was targeting their home in the Dundas Street East and Greenwood Avenue area over the weekend because of their sexual orientation.

They said a video posted on YouTube distorts the truth (see video below).

The couple said the church members chose to read the Bible on the sidewalk in front of their house simply because there’s a fire hydrant there, preventing any cars from parking in the spot.

The men said they’ve never felt personally targeted and have never heard anyone say anything homophobic, and suggested the neighbours who confronted the parishioners overreacted.

The neighbour who filmed the alleged confrontation now said he did not personally hear anything homophobic and just assumed they were attacking the same sex couple.
