Edit: the media wants to make this into “dangerous man”. I’m not sure that’s the shot. It’s not about masks. Maybe he was complaining about the hideous architecture, the altar girls or the heretical sermon? Hey, I thought “all are welcome” at gathering spaces?
After briefly kneeling, the aggrieved man is here accused of trespassing by the parish priest at a “gathering space” in Lakewood, Washington charged the gathering space after he was asked to leave, triggering a horde of congregants to join the melee and call for police and security.
A clip of the incident, which has clocked up more than 560,000 views at the time of writing, shows the parish pastor, a fruity Fr. Paul Brunet, orders the man at the front of the congregation to “leave this church right now,” accusing him of “trespassing,” and calling for security. The footage was apparently filmed on Sunday at St. Frances Cabrini Parish Church in Lakewood.
As he’s attacked, you can hear a goblina telling him he’s trespassing. Probably the head of the parish council.
