Footage shows the shocking moment a peaceful church protest suddenly turned violent.

The clip shows a group of people kneeling and praying outside a church in Paris, in protest at its planned demolition.

But when a random bystander walks behind the group one of its members stands up and sucker punches the guy in an unprovoked attack, knocking him out.

It’s unclear why the attack happened, but The Sun reported it was because he was playing loud music, with the person who uploaded the video adding in the description that the victim was ‘chastised for his rudeness’ by ‘a soldier in Christ’.

The decision to demolish it was taken back in October 2015 and since then protests to save the church have been marred by violent scenes. Earlier in the month riot police stormed the building and dragged out a Catholic priest and several other protesters.

Whatever the situation with the church, violence isn’t the answer, and you would have thought anyone with true religious beliefs would see that.
