About a thousand people lined U.S. 321 Business in Newton during the weekend. Most were protesting anti-gay remarks made by a Maiden preacher earlier this month.
A group of counter protesters also gathered to preach their perspective on what the Bible says.
The gathering was mostly peaceful, but a few people were ticketed for using loudspeakers and bullhorns during the event. That's against the law in Newton.
Meanwhile, police are investigating a suspicious fire at Providence Road Baptist Church - that's where the controversy originally started on Mother's Day.
