A group of Lynn's co-religionists planned a "Freedom March and Prayer" through the village on September 28 to, in their words, "flood the streets and pray, repent, and march as Biblical Christians." They were blocked by police from getting to Church Street where the mayor was attending a counter rally organized by the LGBTQ community. Lynn's group marched up Yonge instead.

They say they do not hate, but simply want to tell those who live in the village that they're loved. That's a horribly disingenuous claim. They know why they are there, and the community knows why they are there.

It's difficult to define those involved with Lynn. He seems to have few, if any, connections even to the traditionally ultra-conservative and homophobic churches or denominations – although they do seem well-funded and organized given the numbers that showed up Saturday with signs and T-shirts.
