A Catholic Celebration Disrupted with Verbal Abuse

David Hartline reports how "The Ministry or Minister of Annoyance" and his cohorts (of unknown numbers) disrupted a Catholic procession on its way to Church, marching amongst them and shouting their damnation for being Catholic. I know of quite a few who believe this very same thing but they don't go around like that. The silence of the media is disturbing too. If it was a Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Wiccan or some other celebration that was disrupted like that, lawsuits would be flying and the press would be all over the story. But when it's a Catholic celebration like it was.. nothing but silence. Dr. Philip Jenkins, an Episcopalian professor of history and religion at Penn State, will not be surprised.
