Members of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, along with fellow believers from other congregations who have had their spines stiffened by the efforts of the Church leadership and the courage of other like-minded believers, put on another Psalm Sing event on Friday in front Of City Hall, tripling their attendance, but also drawing counter-protesters bent on drowning out the worship.
The 15-minute event, which consisted of 3 acapella hymns and a doxology, grew considerably in size, but also brought out counter-protesters. They gathered in the allocated circles and made a ruckus in an effort to antagonize and disrupt the worship. One woman brought her young sons along, and they beat the drums while wearing masks. One protester said, “We’re trying to teach Christians how to love thy neighbor,” and proceeded to accomplish that task by loudly and repeatedly banging his drum.
Despite law enforcement officers citing and arresting several members for congregating in violation of Public Health Emergency Order 20-03 a few days ago, this time the police demurred and did nothing. No tickets were handed out, though all were in violation of the lockdown orders and behaved no differently than last time.
In a statement made to the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, Gabe Rench, one of the men arrested on Wednesday but left unaccosted today, despite doing the very same thing as last time, said about the banging drums.
It shows the contrast between pretty music and what godlessness looks like. Godlessness is ugly. It doesn’t produce pretty noise. And it was actually kind of a funny contrast between what was going on between our beautiful singing and their ugly protest.
While Christ Church will likely have another Psalm Sing event very soon, drawing even bigger crowds than this, the idea for this sort of event has already spread to other cities, with at least two other demonstrations planned soon for San Diego and the greater Atlanta area.
