Holy War On Public Square?


The Christians had some company Friday on Watertown's Public Square.

Members of the Watertown Baptist Temple have been holding weekly evangelical sessions on the square. 

On Friday, they were countered by several anti-Christians holding signs indicating they worship something else.

One sign read, "Eat healthy and worship Satan."

The other read, "No gods, no masters."

On-camera, however, these newcomers shied away from describing themselves as atheists or anything else.

"I just don't want to hold myself down to one belief. I want to learn, you know, that there's many other options out there," said RaeChelle Davis, counter-demonstrator.

"They got the right to free speech. We've got the same rights as they do, you know," said Dewey Stewart, pastor of Watertown Baptist Temple.

This was the second straight week the counter-demonstrators showed up with their message and they said they plan to continue.
