Christians go into freakout mode as Satanist opens city council meeting with a prayer

Once again, Satanists are showing their masterful skills at trolling Christians who claim to be proponents of “religious freedom.”

During a city council meeting in Pensacola, Florida this Thursday, a co-founder of the local Satanic Temple stepped to the speaker’s podium to say a prayer, but not before he was interrupted by a crowd of people – mostly members of the United Methodist Church of Pace – who seemed genuinely freaked out at David Suhor’s alleged demonic presence.

As soon as Suhor approached the podium, the crowd stood and began reciting the Lord’s Prayer.

According to WEARTV, Council President Charles Bare called for order in the room and told the crowd to quiet down or they would have to leave. As the crowd continued to disrupt Suhor’s prayer, Pensacola Police escorted numerous people out.

“If you deviate away from what I feel is proper invocation speech, I will have you removed from the chamber,” Bare warned Suhor.

“I would rather be in a room than let darkness sit here by itself,” one man in the audience declared.


Once order was regained, Suhor began his invocation. Many continued to pray. Councilmember Gerald Wingate walked out.

Afterwards, several people in the crowd took to the podium to express their disapproval with the council’s decision to allow the Suhor’s invocation in the first place.

Suhor then returned to the podium and began talking about his invocation rights of which Council President Bare agreed.

“Quit pushing Christian privilege as we see with the Bayview cross and so many other issues and go to a moment of silence and let everyone pray or not, according to their own conscience,” Suhor said.
