A team promoting A&E’s new horror series “Damien” crashed a Christian protest that typically takes place every year across the street from San Diego’s Comic-Con.

The promoters countered “Jesus saves” and “Jesus Will Rise” slogans with posters and shirts that read, “From Flames, Damien Will Rise” and “The Beast Rises,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Additionally, street teams handed out stickers, pins with “666” on them and pamphlets directing Comic-Con guests to visit www.ItsAllforYou.com, a site that warns visitors, “[Damien] is the only way to deal with the coming end.”

“Atrocities fill our airwaves. Atrocities crowd out the Internet. Atrocities stain our history,” the pamphlets read, teasing the show’s 2016 premiere date on the last page, The Hollywood Reporter said.

A Vine video published by Gizmodo showed about a dozen A&E promoters chanting, “It’s all for you, Damien,” and “My blood for Damien.”
