    1. Whose lifestyle?

    2. Complete non-sequitur.

    Or a particularly receptive audience for that matter, but either way this was one of the most well-heeled protest I've ever seen. There's very little to attack it for. Oh, they didn't throw apples at the speaker or boo him so that he couldn't be heard, but just...stood up and walked out? Gosh, this was surely Thunderdome.

    Good for their free speech. Although it's rude and disrespectful to go only to plan on walking out. It also distracts/disturbs audience members that genuinely want to be there. It's just poor taste.

    Perversion and a degradation of the moral structure of marriage and family shouldn't be tolerated. It's necessary for it to be protested every time it shows itself.

    From this statement one could conclude that protest is by definition rude, disrespectful and in poor taste. I'm not sure how you could dial that down and still have it qualify as a protest.

    What makes it rude to me is purposefully going in and distracting someone's speech via a walkout and showing disrespect to those who do want to be there for the intended purpose. It's just poor form. It would also be rude if they filled up the meeting area preventing others from attending only to walk out and waste that space. I'm all for protest, but I don't think this is a good way to do it. Not the worst way, I would just say it was rude.
