Democrats Attack Church Members On Easter

CHICAGO — Six Iraq war protesters disrupted an Easter Mass on Sunday, shouting and squirting fake blood on themselves and parishioners in a packed auditorium.

Three men and three women startled the crowd during Cardinal Francis George's homily, yelling "Even the Pope calls for peace" as they were removed from the Mass by security guards and ushers.

One Mass attendee, Mike Wainscott of Chicago, yelled at the anti-war protesters.

"Are you happy with yourselves?" he said. "There were kids in there. You scared little kids with your selfish act. Are you happy now?"

The group, which calls itself Catholic Schoolgirls Against the War, said in a statement after the arrests that they targeted the Holy Name Cathedral on Easter to reach a large audience, including Chicago's most prominent Catholic citizens and the press, which usually covers the services.

Kevin Clark of International Solidarity Movement told the Chicago Tribune that he attended the Mass to serve as a witness for the protesters.

Imagine a church celebrating the risen Savior on Easter, a most joyous event, when a group of atheists interupts the service in such a fashion. They should all be jailed.

Takes a low down scumbag to upset a church service like this.

Easter is a time of rejoicing in the Christian faith, a time to solemnly reflect on what Christianity is to all who accept it. It's awful to happen on this particular day. The world is too full of hate, I hope someday the attackers will realize what a dastardly deed they did.

Not much of a church goer but my mother always said Easter is special. This is a shame.
