Black Family Requires An Escort Into NY Church Because Black Lives Matter Protested It

A crowd of protesters descended on Grace Baptist Church in Troy, New York after it was revealed that the minister was holding a raffle for a chance to win an AR-15 to church-goers. The minister also told parishioners that baggy pants hanging down below the waist, and Antifa-like apparel is not allowed in his church.

The Grace Baptist Church posted a video of Black Lives Matter protesters shouting at parishioners at they attempted to enter the Sunday service: “If black lives matter, why did this black family require guards to be escorted into church to be protected from the mob?”

“Does the Bible defend my right to keep and bear arms?” reads the church’s website, “Qualified attendee will receive a NY legally modified AR-15.”

The flyer also notes that Black Lives Matter or “ANTIFA-like” apparel is not permitted in the church, and denotes, “Anyone wearing their jeans, pants, etc., below their waistline will not be permitted in the building or the service,” as well as several other stipulations.

Local protester Steven Negron told WRGB: “It’s extreme poor taste, the time that they decided to raffle off a rifle when we have all of the shootings going on in all of our communities.”

“An AR-15 is completely unnecessary in this community. Even as a hunting rifle I mean that’s not really the type of rifle used to hunt,” Negron said.

News of the raffle surfaced on social media when people began posting pictures of flyers that were distributed throughout the city.
