Keene pastor told to remove 'Black Lives Matter' shirt at NH Trump rallies


KEENE — A local pastor was told by security to take his "Black Lives Matter" shirt off at a Donald Trump rally last week.

Mark Ferrin, a pastor at First Baptist Church of Keene, was at the Republican presidential nominee's rally in Bedford on Thursday wearing a "Black Lives Matter" shirt. Security asked him to take his shirt off because it was a form of "protest," Ferrin told the Keene Sentinel.

This is not the first time that this has happened to Ferrin. He said that when he attended a previous rally held in Manchester on Aug. 25, he was also told by security guards to cover up his "Black Lives Matter" shirt with another shirt that he had brought with him.

Ferrin complied with security at both rallies in order to avoid any problems, he said.
