MINNEAPOLIS (WTAQ) - A federal judge says a Wisconsin man cannot hand out Bibles inside a gay pride festival this month at a public park in Minneapolis.
Brian Johnson of Hayward sought an injunction giving him unfettered access to the festival grounds.

Could he pass out free copies of the Koran?
Now that would be an interesting move.
Could he pass out free copies of the Koran at a Christian rally?
That's the money-shot right there. If the park is open to the public, government has no business judging the content of someone's free-speech. Eventually the USSC is going to boot this ruling to the moon.
Use leftist aka progressive perverted homosexual tactics. Do it anyway! How many political and public gatherings have perverted homosexual disrupted in the name of their perversion? What goes around, comes around!
As I've asked repeatedy, and will continue to ask, what exactly do they have to be proud of?
Proposed bumper sticker, if you want your car trashed:
HOMOSEXUAL. Because there's nothing GAY about it!
In a PUBLIC place, that is reserved for a NON-EXCLUSIVE meeting of Christians, I fail to see how he would be prohibited from passing out anything at all. Koran, Buddhist, Wiccan or Athiest.
We asked that same question to a Gay man we know. We said that if we saw a group of Gay men, wearing suits, or a group of Lesbians in business attire, all clean and neat - walking with a Gay Pride sign - we could respect them.
However, what we see is an outlandish caricature of “Pride” as one could have. When you behave like a circus with drunken “faries” (complete with pink wings) prancing about - you become a laughing stock, a parody of what you are attempting to achieve.
He had to agree.
What is sad is that there are not entire churches of people who are willing to, on their own, simply walk into that public park as is their right, and while walking through that public park, offer bibles to every person they pass by, as is also their right.
Let the judge try to imprison a million Christians. But apparently, we don’t have any who are free, just this one man.
We need to stop asking permission, and move in force to exercise our rights and responsibilities.
Would the judge then agree to ban display of gay signs or gay literature at a Christian event?
These are the freaks who insist on being married in the eyes of the church yet they do not want the Bible near them. Their demands on the clergy are done out of spite.
I wonder how open carry of a pink pistol with a rainbow triangle would go over?
that would leave them dazed and (even more) confused!
How about a t-shirt that reads: Heterosexual Pride
"Woe to those who call good evil and evil good....."
When Lot and his family were delivered from Sodom, they were not called upon to preach to or attempt top save the Sodomites. They were commanded to LEAVE and NOT look back.
Sometimes it just has to be that way.
However, on Constitutional Grounds, this man has EVERY RIGHT to pass out literature on public property. So, although his desire to pass out Bibles at a “Gay Pride” event is on shaky ground Scripturally, it is his Constitutional Right.
Anyway, just my humble opinion.
If a homersexual wanted to pass out stuff at our church celebrations what would we want the ruling to be?
I need some paper to use in starting the wood stove. Pulp korans are as good as any for that purpose. But slick coated paper- not so much.
“If a homersexual wanted to pass out stuff at our church celebrations what would we want the ruling to be?”
I believe the difference here is between public and private property.
They are meeting on public property, therefore, it should be accessible to the public.
If they rent their own hall or meet in their own house, it’s different.
He'd also be charged with a crime for photographing public sex in the park washrooms.
The national gay rights lobby has been seeking to decriminalize washroom sex since it "unfairly" prosecutes members of the same sex (since they are the only ones who can legally enter the washroom).
They say it leads to embarrassment, public scorn and ridicule, and criminal prosecution.
Down is up. It's is too late to save this nation.
Your church is on private property.
The godless Atheist brigade has already seen to it that religious gatherings on public property are shunned and prohibited.
But the lavender mafia has their taxpayer and corporate sponsored gay pride orgies nationally this month. Weeeee.
what exactly do they have to be proud of?That they are a tiny minority forcing the majority to bend to their will?
You intolerant BREEDER!
How dare you impose your own sexual identity on gays, lesbians, transgenders, transvestites, bisexuals, trisexuals,...?
This is about UNITY. Except for heterosexuals. They only get derision. The Lavender Mafia has spoken.
Really though, if you look at it, the closest homosexuals come to "tolerance" is accepting someone of the same sex who's had cosmetic surgery and hormone treatments to resemble a member of the opposite sex. Seek out a loving relationship with someone of the OPPOSITE sex without butchering the sexual traits? Not so much. "Ewww".
Tolerance my butt. They are vain and seek someone like themselves.
Your church is on private property
It’s not a Federal offense if a homosexual DOES step into a religious gathering and push his position.
But this Federal judge thinks it is a federal offense to promote religion at a gay pride event.
Does this mean there won’t be any ministers trying to advance same sex marriage there?
The group has non-exclusive access to the park, by the way. Homosexuals apparently have exclusive control on what is SAID in that park.
If one really wanted to hurt the gay pride movement, just nationally expose the San Francisco Fulsom Street Parade in all it’s infamy.
On what basis do you conclude that this judge's order would protect you from such activities at your gatherings?
Oh, hate speech?
I understand that a person has the right not to accept something offered but I cannot understand how a judge can prohibit someone from offering something.
If it is just a gay thing what will the judge do about the presence of a bible when a gay person rents a hotel room to attend the event?
