A christian against marriage equality is who pied Alan Joyce (video)

The christians are getting restless. 

Many will remember CEO of Qantas Alan Joyce getting pied in the face by some strange looking guy, but it's only recently come out why the guy did it. Turns out he's a christian opposed to marriage  equality.

Joyce is of course openly gay, and part of a group of companies who wrote to the gov wanting them to pass same sex marriage.

I guess when they run out of arguments they resort to pies.
Despite receiving an unreserved apology, Alan Joyce will press charges against the man who shoved a lemon meringue pie in his face and says the incident has only made him more determined to campaign for same-sex marriage.

 Perth man Tony Overheu says he smeared Mr Joyce with the pie in protest against the Qantas chief executive's "corporate bullying" over gay marriage.

 Mr Overheu, a former farmer and devout Christian, apologised via email for Tuesday's stunt, but Mr Joyce isn't turning the other cheek.

 "My intention is to send a message that this type of behaviour isn't acceptable and that I will have every intention of pressing charges," he told reporters on Wednesday.

 Mr Overheu, 67, left a room of more than 500 people aghast when he strolled up to Mr Joyce and shoved a $25.95 lemon meringue pie in his face during a speech at a business breakfast at Perth's Hyatt Regency hotel. SBS
