OTTAWA, August 18, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Christian man was stabbed in the back by a pro-gay woman last Friday after telling her he doesn't believe sodomy is okay.
The man, a 26-year-old Mennonite missionary from Drayton, Ontario, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital and has already been released. He was part of a group that traveled to Ottawa to preach, sing and share the Gospel in the streets.
According to Eric Brubacher, a witness and member of the Mennonite group the victim was part of, "The confrontation was about the idea of homosexuality ... if that's OK, if that's acceptable, and whether God loves somebody who is in that state. And we assured her that He does."
The stabbing occurred in the Byward Market area of Ottawa, just days before the city's gay pride parade.
Local police are still searching for the attacker, who fled the scene of the crime. She's described as white 22-year-old with a slim build and blond hair with pink highlights.
The man's Mennonite group has reportedly forgiven her.
