The organizer of a Seattle Christian prayer rally is speaking out after city officials closed the park to them while at the same time Antifa was filling city streets to riot.

Sean Feucht, the event's director, appeared on Fox & Friends Tuesday and pointed the finger at "godless politicians" who barricaded and fenced off the park to prevent the planned worship event from taking place.

"It's so wild, because yesterday, they had on 4th Avenue in Seattle, they had Antifa rioters throwing Molotov cocktails at policemen, and yet the city focused their energy on our peaceful worship and prayer rally in Gas Works Park," Feucht said.

The city's parks and recreation department canceled the event "due to anticipated crowding that could impact the public health of residents." Feucht expressed no reservations at calling out the inconsistency in the city's priorities.

"There's just a bias …You know, it's the height of hypocrisy right now that they're letting these cities, you know, succumb to rioting and burning and pillaging and yet they're targeting Christians," Feucht said, adding, "It was obviously a targeting and discrimination towards believers in the city."

Even though city officials blocked access to the park, the Christians held their worship rally regardless.

"Last night it was pretty easy, we just pivoted and called it a worship protest, so now technically it's legal and we went to the streets," Feucht said.
