Yes, but no doubt the protesters were just more convinced that they are martyrs to their cause. I have no doubt they took "hypocrite" as a badge of honour.
I dont think this is that big a win, or even if it is one at all.
Sitting down politely and only responding to question when the students are sitting nicely and put up their hands is a bit condescending. The guy in the chair controls the whole scene.
I'd ask the church group to sit down quietly, put up their hand and wait till I gave them permission to speak.
They might wait a while...
