A group of Christians witnessing to the truth about abortion were kicked out of a Washington state coffee shop Oct. 1 after the owner said he was offended by their message.

A video of the Seattle coffee shop owner berating advocates with Abolish Human Abortion has more than half a million views on Facebook (Warning: Graphic language). It serves as strong evidence of the intolerance and hostility that pro-life advocates face in today’s society.

The shop owner, Ben Borgman, who is gay, insisted that the Christian group had to leave his shop on Oct. 1, Christian Daily reports. Borgman claimed the group had brought graphic materials into his shop, but Abolish Human Abortion advocates said they did not.

The confrontation quickly deteriorated into a profanity-laced tirade with Borgman suggesting that he perform a sex act in front of the group.

“I’m gay. You have to leave,” Borgman told the group. Later, he continued: “Are you going to tolerate [watching a sex act]? Answer my f— question! No, you’re going to sit right here and f— watch it! … Leave! All of you. Tell all your f— friends, don’t f— come here.”

Here’s more from the report:

Caleb Head, Caytie Davis, and other members of Abolish Human Abortion entered the Bedlam coffee shop in Seattle after giving out pro-life pamphlets in the area. When they were identified as pro-lifers, owner Ben Borgman told them to leave and engaged in a heated conversation with them, The Washington Times detailed.

Davis said they were not distributing anything inside the shop, but the barista told the owner about their presence, and the latter suddenly came and demanded that they leave. She added that Borgman showed them a pro-life pamphlet he found outside and asked if it was the one they were handing out around the area, The Liberator reported.

The pamphlet in question showed a photo of an aborted child. It also featured a rainbow and an explanation of the Biblical origin of the figure, something that Borgman said offended him.
