Court: Detroit suburb violated evangelist's rights

A very small victory in the fight against the Islamic invasion of the West.  A court finally has the backbone and legal reason to uphold American law over Sharia.  Lets hope that this continues and Sharia is outlawed in our courtrooms.


Court: Detroit suburb violated evangelist's rights

By Ed White, Associated Press

DETROIT — A Detroit suburb violated the free-speech rights of a Christian evangelist by barring him from handing out leaflets at an Arab-American street festival last year, a federal appeals court said Thursday.

The 2-1 decision comes less than a month before the next festival in Dearborn, which draws thousands of people to Warren Avenue in the heavily Arab community.

The festival had offered George Saieg of Anaheim, Calif., a free booth in 2010, but said he and his followers could not freely walk sidewalks with literature about converting Muslims to Christianity.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the restriction was unreasonable, especially when vendors and pedestrians were allowed on sidewalks during the festival.
