The Catholic Diocese of Dallas is responding to Dallas mother Deirdre Hairston’s allegation that she was escorted out of Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, while holding her baby — for not wearing a mask.
And there’s video of the incident.
Appearing on Dr. Taylor Marshall’s podcast, Hairston, who’s pregnant, described how she was escorted out by officers after Holy Communion with the eucharist “still on her tongue,” and told the church didn’t want her there. In the video shown on the podcast, one of the three officers tells Hairston that she will “place her in handcuffs,” if she doesn’t leave.
“Am I getting arrested?” Hairston asks.
“No, not right now. But if you don’t listen you will be,” replies the officer.
Cell phone footage shows Hairston asking what crime she has committed, to which police replied she was “trespassing on a business.”
Hairston said her parish-priest, Father Ryan called police.
