"Hate Flyers" Distributed at Episcopal Church in Rehoboth

From Delaware-

A coastal church told WBOC that a "hate letter" was left on the windshields of cars, and found by church goers, as they left services Sunday. The three-page flyers were critical of the All Saints Episcopal Church, for both their acceptance of gay and lesbians as well as their allowance of females to hold church leadership positions.

"It's really disturbing for people to receive this," said Rector Max Wolf. "To all sorts of people. Certainly the gay and lesbian members of our parish were offended. But also all their friends and family that love them just the way God made them."

Wolf said the church was likely targeted due to it's policy of being "fully inclusive." Since same sex marriage was legalized in 2013, the church has married about 50 gay and lesbian couples. The church also has female bishops in leadership roles at the church.
