Pro-choice group Ruth Sent Us, a reference to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, threatened to burn the Eucharist in response to a Twitter user who offered to pray for them after calling for protests in Catholic churches and judges’ homes .
“Fill your rosaries and your armed prayer. We will remain indignant after this weekend, so keep praying. We will burn the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse that Catholic churches have tolerated for centuries,” the organization tweeted, have called on abortion supporters to protest at Catholic churches across the country during Mother’s Day weekend.
St. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and St. Peter’s Church Catholic Church, both of which are on Capitol Hill, reportedly requested increased police presence due to fears that protesters will try to disrupt Sunday morning Mass.
The tweet, which also included a picture of Jesus chasing money changers out of the temple and a woman wearing the red robe from “The Handmaid’s Tale”, was a response to a user who said she would pray the rosary for the protection of priests, parish children, police and “for the safety and change of heart” for pro-abortion protesters.
The reaction to the latest tweet from Ruth Sent Us was overwhelmingly negative, with many Twitter users condemning it as “evil” or “demonic”.

“This is pure evil, and it is not surprising from those who treat abortion as a sacrament,” said journalist Alexandra DeSanctis Marr.

“And we will pray for you all. Even when you kill a child, you are its mother forever, and this is also your day. These truths are inevitable. Happy Mother’s Day,” wrote Matt Schlapp. “See you at church today.”
