THIS WAS TRULY AN OCCASION WHEN WE STORMED THE FORTS OF DARKNESS AND BROUGHT THEM DOWN

THREAT TO SUE CHURCHES OVER PSYCHIC FAYRE PROTEST AT CLUNE BRAE HOTEL.

A peaceful church protest on Thursday night outside the venue of a Psychic Fayre at the Clune Brae Hotel, Port Glasgow U.K., was so effective, that 'Infocall Universal', who arranged the event, have threatened to sue the protesters, for 'loss of income'.

Mr Mullan, a director of the company, told an organizer, "You have interfered with our legitimate business." The reply he received was that when his 'legitimate business' was destroying people's lives, then Christians had to give warning. He was told that the psychics were using the devil's power, and as such, were putting people who became involved, in great danger. "I will be seeing my solicitor in the morning" said Mr Mullan.

A number of Christians from different churches in the area, gathered to sing hymns, give out leaflets, and 'prayer walk' round the hotel. "We have surrounded this place with a ring of prayer" they said. Ages of those present ranged from teenagers to a lady of 84

The hotel threatened to call the police, if the protesters didn't leave the footpath outside the hotel grounds. Eventually the police did arrive, but could do nothing, as no laws were being broken.

Major Victor Ross, commanding officer of the Port Glasgow Corps of the Salvation Army, attacked the psychic fayre as, 'the works of the devil', and 'the thin edge of the occult, which is leading people into enslavement by Satan. People have no idea what they're getting into, and it is well documented, that great distress, and even mental illness, can follow in the wake of such involvement."

Preaching to his congregation in the King Street citadel, he said, "The Christian Soldier is at war with the forces of evil, and we must stand up and be counted!"

In a leaflet he wrote, which was handed out during the Christian picket of the fayre, he speaks about many being drawn into 'the devil's web of deceit' through TAROT CARDS, FORTUNE TELLING, OUIJA BOARDS, ASTROLOGY and other often seemingly innocent things.

The Major also says in the leaflet, "THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HAS DEFEATED THE DEVIL!" and further states, "ALL WHO REPENT OF THEIR SIN AND TRUST HIM, CAN HAVE THEIR SINS FORGIVEN AND ESCAPE FROM THE HOLD THE DEVIL HAS OVER THEIR LIVES."

The Major spoke of the Scriptural account of King Saul who in 1st Samuel chapter 28, went to consult a clairvoyant at Endor, and thus encountered the fearful judgement of God, leading to his own destruction. "Beware" said the Major, "God does not view these things lightly! They have the sting of eternal death in their tail!"
