It's nice to know. I'm going to the Religious Education Congress sponsored by the Diocese of Los Angeles. In the instructions that are sent out, I noticed this little note:
If there are protesters at Congress, please do not engage in conversation with them. Ignoring them is the best way of responding. We have developed a plan with Convention Center staff to handle any potential protests.
I do ignore them mostly because I'm rushing to get to the event. Besides, there's more of them than little ole me. They have a bullhorn, too. But I've encountered them when the pope came to the USA, Eucharistic Congress and last year at the religious congress. I never thought much about it. I always thought they were just trying to save my soul, according to their beliefs.
But you think they'd get the idea when their conversion rate from these events is "0".
