Same-sex couple allege they were held down and punched inside church by ‘worshipers who wanted to turn us straight, at the The First Assembly of God Church, in Blackwell, Okla.
Sean Cormie, 23, alleges he was invited by his family to attend a service at the church and they told him to invite his boyfriend, Gary Gardner
At least a dozen members of the congregation at The First Assembly of God Church got violent as they tried to convert the gay men, after a Sunday service on Sept. 8, Cormie said
Cormie and Gardner claim the pastor invited them to the alter and began saying, “‘It’s a sin, it’s an abomination, you need to realize, wake up, and see it for a sin,’” as he prayed over the pair
That’s when a group of 12 and 15 people surrounded the gay couple and progressed from praying to punching them, while the pastor continued praying over them despite their entreaties to be allowed to leave
