LGBT Advocates Attack Peaceful Pro-Family Event: “Paint hit me in the eyes”

Update: On July 31, 2023, YouTube pulled the video footage of the attack off their platform, effectively censoring the aggression. The video is now available on Rumble, here.

For Immediate Release:

Chicago, July 27, 2023: Young volunteers with TFP Student Action were assaulted on July 24 while conducting a peaceful event “to protect the innocence of children” in front of the Art Institute of Chicago. LGBT advocates poured coffee on them, defaced pro-family banners and signs, destroyed private property, and sprayed them in the face with toxic paint.

  • “The paint hit me in the eyes and burned for about six hours,” said TFP volunteer Rex Teodosio.
  • “She spray painted my face too,” explains Joseph Scordato.
  • On camera, one pro-homosexual individual yells: “I hope you (expletive) die, you Christian fascist (expletive). You will die a lonely death.”

Schools and libraries that give children access to explicit content, including pro-transgender books and Drag Queen Story Hours, have stirred a national debate.

“There’s nothing more precious than the innocence of our children,” said Rex Teodosio, leader of the TFP group touring the Midwest. “But unfortunately, too many public schools and libraries have turned into dens of sin where minors are fed outrageous, inappropriate, and immoral material,” he said. “That’s why we decided to launch this peaceful campaign to protect the innocence of our children.”

“Getting hit in the face with spray paint is not pleasant. My eyes are stinging, inflamed and bloodshot,” Teodosio said. “The attacker yelled ‘bigot’ and ‘hater’ as she destroyed our signs and ruined our clothes with paint -- she played the victim as she committed the crime. But the sacrifice is all worth it because I know I’m building a culture that protects the innocence of children and shields them from grooming and corruption.”

In the video, TFP volunteers are heard chanting “aggressor” as the assault occurred. Although the attacker fled, three police officers arrived to inspect the damage and confirm that the perpetrator was caught. “We want to press charges,” said Rex Teodosio.

“I see a troubling pattern at work. At first, the homosexual movement just wanted tolerance,” Teodosio explained. “Moving beyond tolerance, they radically redefined marriage. Then they demanded that everyone celebrate pride. And now they want lewd drag shows for 4-year-old children. Will this radical agenda morph into full-blown tyranny? Will the criminalization of Christianity come next?”

Teodosio concluded: “Our team is motivated. Our cause is noble. And we won’t stop fighting for the innocence of our children.”
