Will the fornicators also sue?
If the Judge follows the US Constitution, her personal choices should not matter. We shall see.
WTF? So the OWS protestors doing drugs, raping women, shietting on cop cars is considered “freedom of speech” but a Pastor preaching is not? Is Nancy Pelosi running that town now?
I guess the President could press his case against the ministers after looking at the list.
...coming to a church near you. Homosexuality will bring in the persecution of the church.
As has been stated many times on this forum:
So-called “gay rights” is a direct assault on the First Amendment. That these preachers are even being taken to a kangaroo court should send a chill down the spine of all Americans who care about the Constitution.
Homosexuality is just partner assisted masturbation. Homosexuals are the most self-centered, self-serving and self-aggrandizing group the world has ever seen.
I thought this story was going to be about some jurisdiction in England.
All I can say is: WOW!
And I am sure we can all count on WND to accurately state what the arrest was for!
If these guys get a jury, not a chance they will be convicted, and the stupid cops have alienated more of the support they will eventually desperately need.
Witches? What if you are a good witch?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;...
or abridging the freedom of speech..., or of the press;
or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
What a crock.
We’ll see what the outcome is tho it will be argued that it was not the content of their speech but the thickness of their signs...
yeah right...I’d be back there the next day...
Looks like private property, not public property?
Maybe a mirror would be the appropriate response?
It’s a bible verse, guys.
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
1 Cor 6:9-10, King James Version.
Some hold differences with the translation, but that’s what it says.
I do believe that this is far less incendiary than the infamous Fred Phelps / Westboro Baptist Church “free speech” which was ruled within the First Amendment.
Not many doing this so I don’t thing we have to worry about a lot of people getting arrested...............
Obviously when James Madison put “freedom of speech” and “freedom of religion” in the 1st amendment, he never expected anyone to abuse those rights by quoting the Bible to condemn homosexuality. He assumed people would stick to nice uncontroversial texts like “peace on earth” or “the Lord is my shepherd” or “slaves, obey your masters.”
The judge dismissed the charges: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=373737
