'Don't Mess With Our Kids' Rally Held Outside Ohio Statehouse

Hundreds gathered outside the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus for a ‘Don’t Mess With Our Kids’ rally on Saturday, April 13.

Video captured by journalist Brendan Gutenschwager shows a stage in front of the statehouse where several speakers addressed the large crowd.

According to the movement’s website, all 50 states were encouraged to hold rallies at state capitols around the country to protest against “woke” and LGBT “indoctrination.”

The organization, which describes itself as Christian, is anti-abortion and advocates against the “sexualization of children.” Past actions have included protests to ban mention of sexual orientation in schools. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful

- Fathers are important.

- You're the legislators. We gather today-- I'm going to have to move this because I'm a mover. We're gathering today not just here in this great state of Ohio but in all 50 states.


And Washington D.C. and many other nations to stand, to pray, and to fast on behalf of our generations to say enough is enough. And the reason that we come to the location is because this is the place where man makes laws. This is the place where man makes laws.


But we are legislators of the kingdom of Heaven, and God's laws are higher than man's laws.


Man can say what he wants to say and do what he wants to do, but ultimately, it's God's way. And so as the legislators of the kingdom of Heaven, we're going to do the Matthew Six today, and we're going to legislate the kingdom of Heaven into the Earth. And we're going to come to an agreement and into an alignment with what the word of God says. And we're going to legislate that into our state as it is happening across the entire nation right now.
