Riot Police Protect St. Louis Cathedral from Protesters at Christmas Midnight Mass

Churchgoers in St. Louis Wednesday night were not allowed to celebrate the birth of Jesus without the threat of disruption by supporters of the so-called Black Lives Matter campaign.

Photos posted to Twitter show police in riot gear massed in force protecting a church identified as the Cathedral Basilica.

St. Louis Post Dispatch reporter Leah Thorsen described the protesters gathered outside the church as peaceful. Earlier Wednesday night protesters in nearby Berkeley, Missouri threatened reporters forcing news crews to flee.
