Protesters disrupt pro-life mass at Catholic church in Ohio: ‘Jesus hates you’

After being removed from the building, the protesters shouted obscenities at the law enforcement officials.

CHRISTIAN POST —

As Catholics in Columbus, Ohio celebrated a pro-life mass on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision Friday, a small group of pro-abortion rights protesters stormed the ceremony.

St. Joseph Cathedral in Columbus, Ohio, the state’s capital and largest city, celebrated a Respect Life mass on Friday, marking the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

Video footage obtained by The Columbus Dispatch showed police and security officers working to remove a group of about eight protesters who disrupted the mass to demonstrate in support of abortion rights. 

While worshipers gathered to commemorate the millions of unborn lives lost to abortion over the years, protesters marched around the sanctuary and chanted “two, four, six, eight, this church teaches hate.” 

They held signs with messages such as “Abortion on demand, end Hyde now” as well as “Fund abortion, not clinic harassment.” 

According to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, whose bishop attended the mass, approximately 200 people were in attendance for the 10:30 a.m. service. 

After being removed from the building, the protesters shouted obscenities at the law enforcement officials. One demonstrator remarked that “If hell was real, you would burn in it.” Meanwhile, another shouted, “Jesus hates you!”

The Columbus Dispatch reported that Columbus Police did not offer any details about possible arrests on Saturday.
