Thursday was Texas Muslim Capitol Day in Austin, and a bunch of anti-Muslim protesters and a Texas lawmaker made things really weird.

The event is held every 2 years and is organized by the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations as an opportunity for the Muslim community the meet with lawmakers.

This is the first year that protesters have showed up, according to the Texas Tribune, and one woman took things to a whole new level of crazy when she pulled a Kanye on one of the speakers.

“I proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ over the Capitol of Texas,” she said. “I stand against Islam and the false prophet Mohammad. Islam will never dominate the United States and by the grace of God, it will not dominate Texas.”

State Rep. Molly White also created a stir with a Facebook post about the event in which she requested that Muslims visiting her office publicly pledge allegiance to the U.S.

“I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws,” she wrote. “We will see how long they stay in my office.”

New Jersey Pastor Eric Dammann is using his fist to force God's will upon his people.

In a sermon that reportedly dates back to July but has recently gone viral, Damann says he met a kid named Ben in Calgary who was a "smart aleck."

He wasn't taking the Lord seriously, so he did what any peaceful man of God would do and knocked him to the ground.

"So I walked over to him and went, Bam! Punched him in the chest as hard as I could," he said. "I crumpled the kid. I just crumpled him."

He later apologized saying the clip was out of context.

"I do not endorse child abuse or the punching of children," he told The NY Daily News. "My intention in the sermon was to make a point of how God can use our mistakes. The viral clip does not show the whole sermon, where I say what I did was wrong."
