The Church of Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah trespassed two men from their property after church security guards witnessed the men engaging in offensive behavior. The property, located in downtown Salt Lake City, is apparently not easily identifiable as church property, but when the men were asked to leave, they allegedly became angry and began cursing at the security guards.
One news report stated church security guards restrained the men and contacted SLC police, who arrived and cited the men into court for trespassing.
The incident sparked a “kiss in” where supporters of the homosexual men came to the church property and engaged in behavior reportedly offensive to the church.
This incident made me think of a few things church security practitioners may want to consider if confronted by a situation where you may have to trespass someone.
