The 16th Street Mall was the scene of megaphoned members of the “Official Street Preachers” railing against pro-choice candidates and homosexuality and urging Denver residents and visitors to repent.
At one point about 50 police officers surrounded the group to prevent the “preachers” and passersby who objected to their message from clashing.
“Homosexuals are a threat to national security,” one of the protesters boomed.
The group is drawing its fair share of taunts and arguments from softer-spoken passersby. One woman on a corner near the handful of “preachers” pointed to a man twirling a restaurant advertisement, saying:
“His sign makes more sense.”
