Lake City Protesters Pray Against ‘Rent’

Also: "Rent" opens at Lake City Playhouse without incident/Bill Buley, CdA Press

Friday was opening night for the small stage version of "Rent" in Coeur d’Alene. The content of the play is a hot issue because some characters are gay and have aids. A group met at Saint Joan of Arc to pray the rosary. Protestors say the prayers are for reparations that have been committed by the musical.  A spokesperson for the group told KREM 2’s Cole heath the prayers are to counteract the blasphemous or sinful situations portrayed in the show/KREM. More here.

Question: Which do you consider more effective when you disagree strongly with something -- prayer or protest?
