Classy: Pro-abortion protesters drown out “Amazing Grace” with chants of “Hail Satan” (VIDEO)

I admit I was skeptical of this story when it came across my e-mail yesterday evening. Generally speaking, stories that are either too good or too bad to be true aren’t. Even at the beginning of this short clip, it’s nearly impossible to make out what the pro-abortion protesters are yelling — at least until the camera swings around, and a young woman helpfully boosts the message.

Classy:

It’s been a very interesting day at the Texas State Capitol. Cahnman’s Musings hasn’t been following the hearing. Instead, we’ve been participating in the surrounding events. LetTexasSpeak has been doing a live broadcast from the rotunda where women have been sharing their abortion related testimonies. The pro-abortion crowd has responded with repeated chants of “hail Satan.” It’s taken us all day to get a video recording, but here it is … For the record: They’ve been doing this all day, this is just the first time we caught it on video.

CNN Express also picked it up at the time, although it’s unclear whether this made it to broadcast (via Twitchy):

The Blaze reported it late last night:

The abortion battle in Texas was still raging Tuesday as both abortion supporters and pro-life activists flooded the State Capitol to make their voices heard. The Texas House and Senate reconvened briefly for a special session called by Gov. Rick Perry.

One of the more bizarre tactics used by pro-abortion activists involved chanting “Hail Satan!” to harass a pro-life crowd as they sang “Amazing Grace.” …

Obviously, it is much more likely that the abortion supporters were chanting “Hail Satan!” to mock pro-lifers rather than actually hailing Lucifer, but anything is possible.

I’m certain that the intent was mockery. The overall effect of chanting “Hail Satan”? That’s another story, but one of those effects is surely clarity.

They didn’t “drown out” Amazing Grace.

These disgusting hags are mainly from other states. Sadly, Texas has allowed too much immigration from CA and OR, where the ungodly have plundered the public treasure to such an extent that they flee to TX, which has no state income tax.

We should not allow economic refugees to vote in state elections.

That’s funny, they did the same chant in front of Pontius Pilate only it was translated then as, “crucify Him”.

I don’t think they’re being ironic. I think the chanters are completely sincere.

Shockingly truthful summary of the question. God vs Satan, choose one.

Needs repeating:

“They didn’t “drown out” Amazing Grace.”

...and they NEVER will.

Good thing they didn't say "Praise God."

They would have been arrested.

Did we hear a peep out of them for all the women currently being assaulted and raped in Cairo?

One person said “Hail Satan” in a rather snarky tone and posture; the others were chanting, “Not the church, not the state, women must decide their fate.”

So basically this article stretches the actions of one person to paint a whole group as Satanists. Christians call this lying.

That video only captures some and not the entirety of what was sung. :) We sang for around 45 minutes.

Yes ma’am. :) The sheriffs and law enforcement in the capitol were very good to us. :)

Not only their fate but that of an innocent preborn child. Yet that is rarely mentioned by the culture of death crowd.

“freedom” in the way that Democrats are also seeking citizenship for illegal aliens.

Nationally Democrats want to turn the state of Texas’ office leadership into Democrat controlled seats. Out of state money and out of state voters.

If sufficient liberals need to be imported to accomplish that wet dream, so be it. “By any means necessary”

I find this totally believable. For a change they were being honest.

True, but one of the hallmarks of paganism is child sacrifice. This group sacrifices their children to the god called choice.

I have a periodic e-mail blast of things and I title it as “Tyranny Tracker - with a description of the issue being discussed.” Today’s was a blast of this story, but from TheBlaze. My commentary to intro the article is as follows:

****************************

Regardless of your religious perspective, the linked article below should chill you to the bone. These supporters are admittedly siding with evil as they clamor for government promotion of their ability to murder the defenseless and this is simply for their own convenience.

Once one sides with evil in order to murder the inconvenient in our society, it is a very small step to promoting the murder of those that stand in opposition to their policies. Now mix that with the Obamacare actions that charge the IRS with enforcement, this is the same IRS that targeted the political opponents of this administration.

The bonus for the IRS and Obamacare supporters is that we also know that the NSA is vacuming up all communications of all citizens in the US. It is a simple thing to simply take this data and manipulate it to take statements out of context to prove that someone is an “extremist” that needs to be removed from society.

These same people claim to be protecting Roe, while at the same time they support Obamacare. What they fail to realize is that the decision in Roe v Wade was not a legalization of Abortion, per se, instead it established a “right to privacy between a doctor and patient.” Yet, Obamacare mandates that all medical records be stored in a federal database, therefore they have legislated away that “right to privacy” established by Roe. These morons support Roe and support the legislative overturning of Roe.

I never claimed that those who support Democrats exercise their intellectual capacity...

“We should not allow economic refugees to vote in state elections.”

OK, that made me laugh. Consider that it was posted by someone with the FR moniker of “txrefugee.” ;-)
