Police officers and reporters outnumbered protesters for a rally in Capitol Square this morning to speak out against an Islamic cleric delivering the opening prayer at the House of Delegates today.

James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force, said the event was intended to be a press conference, not a rally.

“Most of us are working people,“ he said of the five there.
