A rally in Austin, Texas by Muslims seeking religious tolerance was repeatedly disrupted by a small group of protesters who said the state belonged to followers of Jesus Christ and that Muslims should go back to the Middle East, the Reuters website reports today (January 30, 2015).
During opening remarks at the Texas Muslim Capitol Day event, a Christian activist from Michigan grabbed the microphone from the speaker and said: "I proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ over the capitol of Texas. I stand against Islam."
A group of people who described themselves as Christian activists also heckled the group of about 600 Muslims who showed up for the rally.
Some of the protesters shouted: "Go home. You ain't going to be happy here."
