An anti-gay demonstrator in Michigan, who held a sign on Mothers Day that read, "Thank your mom today for not being gay," totally got Glee’d by another woman, NBC-affiliate WOOD-TV reports.

The station sent a photojournalist to an intersection in Grandville, Mich., on Sunday to interview Christine Weick, the woman holding the anti-gay sign, after WOOD-TV was sent photos of Weick and another man who was holding a sign that read, "Thank your mom if you’re not a bigot ’Judge not.’"

As the photojournalist began to talk to Weick, another woman, Jessica Prince, came up to her and dumped a slushie on her. WOOD-TV reports the two women then got into an altercation with Prince swearing and giving the middle finger.

"Take a step towards me, you’re gonna get it," Weick said to Prince, holding up a can of pepper spray. She then said it was illegal to throw a slushie at someone and that she would spray Prince if she felt attacked.

"Can you leave the slushie part out? I don’t want to go to jail," Prince asked the news station.

Weick called the police, before she was Glee’d, because a teen who disagreed with her views was making her uncomfortable. When police arrived, Weick told them she wanted to press charges against Prince. Police surveyed the intersection Weick demonstrated in to make sure there were no other incidents.

"Truth is hate to those that hate the truth, and this is the truth," Weick told the local station. "They don’t like it and they label me a hater, and it isn’t that at all. I love them enough to tell them they are on the wrong path."

A man named Zach Hoag later joined Weick, holding a sign that read, "But two moms can be fabulous!"

"Love one another. I think that two moms or two dads can love and nurture a child just the exact same way a mother and father could," he said.

Hoag wasn’t the only one to counter protest Weick. Another man held a sign that read, "Fuck her," and another woman held a sign that read, "I <3 gays."

WOOD-TV reports a number of drivers honked their horns at the signs and one woman yelled out the car window saying, "I’m gay and I have children. I think you’re sick."

    you have to be joking right. the women that has the sign is in the wrong i understand that everyone has the right to how they feel but when you go and stand on the street with your feelings then be ready to back yourself up. Because that is fucked up come on people get with the new day and age you want to say your feelings by holding a sign fine but you have a lot of people that may do the same thing. and i am happy some people took a stand and did what they did!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously people..... and by" people" I mean gays and the people that support them. I was raised to believe that you are in the wrong, but I do not practice a lot of things I was taught, so I will not state weather. Or not I support you, because it didn’t matter to me, just like it shouldn’t to you. That being said, that woman had every right to protest with her sign, and not to be threatened Or touched, just like homosexuals have the right to march or protest for their beliefs. If you want to eliminate one, you have to do it to both, and on that note, do you really want to start giving out the right to change our amendments, because that will start a whole big cluster fuck of more problems. .. just think about it.

    I seriously believe that you should re-check what "freedom of speech" means. Seriously, please re-evaluate it. Losing IQ points here. Damned people and rushing to use an amendment that doesn’t cover being an asshole.

    It’s the same thing as when the churches were protesting KIA soldiers, or people standing and praying outside a woman’s clinic. They have the right to be there, does not mean that they themselves are right. God says judge not, it’s up to him, not us.... my opinion, both sides are wrong
