“We brought children. They brought rocks”:
…the [gay “marriage”] Providence protesters “started jeering and heckling families” and even clearly targeted small children with screams and insults — treatment, said Brown, that left several children, including his own, tearful and asking whether they would be safe.
“What they were trying to do was scare [us] and scare little children,” he said. “It was so out of bounds that it was surreal. … I know my kids were crying, other kids were crying too. they were literally crying at the end, asking if they were going to be OK.”
One horrifying incident caught on video shows a protester pointing off-camera and shouting angrily: “You better watch that kid or we’re gonna kidnap him!”
Others shouted directly at children as young as 4, calling them “Mommy’s little bigot” and other such slurs, said Brown.
