Wow, please pray for EWTN and all those involved in this incident!

During the live Sunday Morning Mass on EWTN, a belligerent man shouting profanities charged at Fr. Wade Menezes during the consecration.

Looking completely startled and somewhat scared, Fr. Menezes still managed to keep his composure during the incident. What a brave man! You can watch the video below. (Warning: offensive content.)

I’m not sold on the possession’ angle that Twitter users kept harping about. The idiot just needed the God Mysterious Way treatment which is a punch in the face for being a disruptive ass..

He is guilty of the FACE Act and should be charged under FEDERAL LAW with this. This law has harsh sentences for disrupting worship in a HOUSE of Worship!

Conservatives, when the 'FACE ACT' was passed, were able to add INTERFERENCE IN A PLACE OF WORSHIP is a violation of this FEDERAL LAW:

Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act is a United States law that was signed by President Bill Clinton in May 1994, which prohibits the following three things: the use of physical force, threat of physical force, or physical obstruction to intentionally injure, intimidate, interfere with or attempt to injure, intimidate or interfere with any person who is obtaining reproductive health services or providing reproductive health services, the use of physical force, threat of physical force, or physical obstruction to intentionally injure, intimidate, interfere with or attempt to injure, intimidate or interfere with any person who is exercising or trying to exercise their First Amendment right of religious freedom at a place of religious worship, the intentional damage or destruction of a reproductive health care facility or a place of worship.

Was watching as it happened. Felt so bad for Father Wade. He nearly dropped the chalice and looked a bit scared. During the mass my wife and I were amazed at his intellect and really enjoyed listening to him. Please convey that we are praying for him.

I think he was more startled at the outburst than scared of the situation. It took him a moment to recollect himself and resume the solemnity of the moment.

Book him, Danno! I hope someone smacked him with a Bible as they drug him out. I would of figured a dive tackle, at a minimum, should have been involved.

So, if a political rally or conservative rally were held in a church, Antifa would be liable under this act.

Thank you kindly; I passed that on and also included it in my own prayer intentions today. Yes, he gives some of the most informative homilies and retreats I’ve heard. You can find a lot of them online and on DVD.

Wow. What a paradox, like forbidding interference with the gassing of Jews and adding interference with persons in a place of religious worship.

But when a certain class of activists disrupt conservation church services they seem to get a pass.
