    Those should all be unwashed fuck fingers.

    Why in the world would anyone want to belong to an organization which treats them like shit.

    I won't even put up with that from asshole individuals online.

    They need not protest but simply to click the catholic church onto ignore.

    DISCLAIMER: Ex-Catholic here, and typically the last person to defend what this organization passes off as a mockery of Christianity.

    For fucking real?

    These people were there to protest and make a scene, not to worship.

    The church owns the property (read: not public property) and can set reasonable requirements for entry.

    As a house of worship, the protesters were denied access NOT on religious grounds, but on grounds of hygiene. The water fonts are hard enough to keep clean without folks deliberately sticking dirtied hands into them.

    Valid points, but amazingly inept way to handle the situation, given the certainty that it would hit the headlines.

    My church welcomes everyone, so - oddly! - this sort of nonsense would never occur.
