Anti-Catholic Nathan Phillips Joined 60 ANGRY Protesters Trying To Disrupt The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass Outside The Basilica Of The National Shrine Of the Immaculate Conception

Washington D.C., Jan 22, 2019 / 03:58 pm (CNA).- While chanting and playing ceremonial drums, a group of Native American rights activists reportedly led by Nathan Phillips attempted Jan. 19 to enter Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception during a Saturday evening Mass. The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass. “It was really upsetting,” the guard told CNA. “There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.” The guard said the incident was a disappointment during a busy and joyful weekend for the shrine. “We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.” The guard told CNA the situation was “tense.” “I’m just really grateful that nothing too bad happened, they were really angry.” Source
