A mostly peaceful protest outside Rev. Smith’s suburban home suddenly turned violent yesterday when a local paperboy accidentally crashed his bike into a group of approximately thirty protesters, causing a panic in which seven people were injured, including two sprained ankles. A spokesperson for the protesters, who identified themselves as Unilateral Christians, later denounced the paperboy’s “attack” as “possibly not an accident at all.”
