Pro-abortion protesters chanted 'Hail Satan!' at the Texas State Capitol to drown out pro-life advocates singing "Amazing Grace." Texas blogger Adam Cahm captured the chant on video.

Here it is:

The Washington Times has the background:

"Tensions in Texas ratcheted a bit higher Tuesday as activists on both sides of the abortion issue squared off at the Capitol in Austin for a somewhat odd religious-themed shout-down.

"Gov. Rick Perry has called for a second special session to pass an abortion law that would prohibit the procedure past the 20th week of pregnancy.

"Pro-choice protesters shouted, "Hail Satan!" as an attempt to drown out pro-lifers' rendition of "Amazing Grace."

"Abortion supporters are once again showing their true colors," Priests for Life National Director Fr. Frank Pavone writes of this and other inflammatory tactics of pro-abortion protesters.
