In the past, SNAP members have provoked Sunday Mass goers to such an extent that judges have been forced to issue restraining orders, and SNAP leaders have been subsequently arrested for violating such orders.
As we reported last year, SNAP tried to argue that Missouri's House of Worship Protection Act, which sought to protect worshipers from angry disruptions such as those instigated by SNAP, was unconstitutional. But Senior United States District Judge E. Richard Webber ruled against SNAP, deciding that SNAP's argument was baloney and that the state has a legitimate interest in protecting the rights of its citizens to worship without fear of threats and intimidation.
But the ruling by the Eighth Circuit overturned Webber's ruling, meaning that parishioners can soon expect regular disruptions at Catholic parishes on Sunday in Missouri. Wonderful.
