Did you think to ask before taking these photographs? I've often witnessed participants on the peace vigil object to being photographed without being asked. There is also a convention of not photographing inside churches.

You have not provided any reporting or analysis of the event. All you have done is intimidate these people at the church and published their photos here.

Are you sure they're the "Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon"?

Why would they be patronising a Church of England establishment?

Why should I ask anybody before taking their picture? Answer: if it's in a private situation it may intrude on their privacy. If people don't want their picture taken in a public place they can approach the snapper and ask.

If people want to feel intimidated that's up to them - but that usually comes from a guilty concience. One or two of these hoodies seem to fit into that category ;-)

They look rather too similar to the Klu Klux Clan for my liking. Stranger... to think their forebears 700 years ago set up the world's first multinational banking corporation and murdered hundreds of thousands of the arabic races in cold blood.

How very Christian of them ;-)

I have more pix so let me know if you want me to upload them too.

Responding to Tony Gosling's post above.

You've answered the question why you should ask before taking photographs yourself - because it may be an invasion of their privacy.

It is debatable whether a religious service is a public place and it is clear from the published photographs that some participants objected.

I think that it's clear that your intention was to intimidate - bully - these people since there was no reporting of events. I have done some research into masonic societies and would have appreciated a report of what happened and why.

Your 'report' and prejudiced remarks are not worthy of publication.

presumably whats good for Mr gosling is good for the old bill or anyone else who wants to justify invading privacy and eroding freedom?

Start pushing your camera into the faces of the critical masser's and see where it gets you !

What a twit...

I'm sure if he shoved the camera in the face of the critical mass lot they would probably organise another ineffective bike ride in protest. Phew.
