  • Description

    Thousands of Christians held a massed Jesus Rally in Copenhagen on Saturday (19 August) - and afterwards, to counter the capital's 'Sin City' reputation, marched through the streets, pasting paper cover the windows of pornography and sex shops.

    Many sex shops had to close and miss out on lucrative Saturday night trade so their wares were blanked our from the eyes of prospective customers which delighted the demonstrators. "We want to show the world that Denmark is more than just sex and pornography," said one of the rally organisers, Pastor H.K. Neerskov of the Danish State Lutheran Church.

    The festival, called 'The Long Day', brought together all the Danish churches and was also attended by groups from the United States and many West European countries.

    The rally attracted such famous Christian campaigners as Brother Andrew, who earned the nickname 'God's Smuggler' by taking contraband bibles into the U.S.S.R. and The People's Republic of China.
