Protestors accuse church and state of muffling their message
Kevin Killeen Reporting
ST. LOUIS (KMOX Radio) - Supporters of gay marriage protesting outside the New Cathedral claim St. Louis police harrassed them, under the direction - they suspect - of the Archdiocese.
About 65 members of a groups Show Me No Hate and the Catholic Action Network lined the sidewalk in front of the Cathedral Sunday afternoon. It's the latest in a series of Sunday demonstrations following news that Archbishop Robert Carlson donated $10,000 to help veto a gay marriage law in the state of Maine.
On Sunday four protestors attempted to stand alongside their cars parked at a 45 degree angle in front of the church holding signs that read, "Honk for Equality" or "Separation of Church and Hate."
That's when they claim police muffled their protest by ordering them back on the sidewalk.
