But you who have visited this site in the hundreds of thousands have ignored bans and prohibitions to participate in the public outcry that has no precedent in our community.

Let’s take it as a compliment that when the illegal means of their camp were exposed to show them for the thugs that they are they were forced to resort to the law and the courts. The devil not only cites scriptures for his purposes but hires lawyers too.
