Christians Prevented From Praying!!

-- by Dave Johnson

Or maybe not,

After threats by local police for attempting to peacefully express their faith in public, two Christians represented by an Alliance Defense Fund allied attorney filed a civil rights lawsuit today against city officials and the chief of police.

“The First Amendment protects Christian speech and forbids the government from censoring it,” said ADF-allied attorney Austin Nimocks of Austin R. Nimocks & Associates, a Biloxi-based law firm.  “Police and city officials cannot be allowed to disregard their citizens’ First Amendment rights.”

Of course, closer examination reveals what was really going on.  They were,

expressing their faith with signs and a voice amplification system on a public sidewalk

 Amplified, signs, etc...
