Protestors At Iowa Park Church

Protestors were at the Iowa Park Church of Christ Sunday. Pastor Bill Lockwood is giving sermons for the next several weeks warning people about what he calls the "dangers of Islam."

Sunday, the Americans For Re-Organization protested at the church. Pastor Lockwood told Newschannel 6 two weeks ago that Islam is a religion of aggressive violence, but, the protestors say the sermons preach hate.

James Havens, with the group says, "What I hope comes out of this is that people just start standing up for what they believe in and to put the word out there that hate kills and we don't need hate in our country." Havens says he believes the protests will grow.

Sunday was the first of five scheduled sermons. Pastor Lockwood took out ads in local newspapers that sparked criticism from North Texas Muslims.
