Oklahoma Christians counter Black Mass with prayer rally
August 16, 2016
More than 1,000 Christians gathered for a prayer rally on the streets of Oklahoma City on August 15, to counter a Black Mass conducted at the city's civic center.
Only a handful of people took part in the Satanic ceremony. Adam Daniels, who presided at the rite, claimed that the Christian protests had discouraged people from attending. The Satanic ceremony had been deliberately timed for the feast of the Assumption, as an affront to the Virgin Mary.
Father William Novak, the vicar general of the Oklahoma City archdiocese, thanked those who participated in the ecumenical prayer services outside the civic center. "We are all brothers and sisters unified in peace and in prayer," he said. "It is why we are here today to stand against evil."
