Vineyard of Columbus’ Pastor Rich Nathan has had enough.
Members of the Minutemen United have been protesting the church for months. The minutemen say the church has a ‘passive resistance’ to both abortion and gay marriage.

Nathan’s response: The church IS anti-abortion and against gay marriage, but it has a mission of ‘broad and inclusive’ boundaries.
