Dearborn, Michigan – June, 2012: A group of Christians were approached by some Muslims in Dearborn who asked about their faith. As they began to share, other Muslims started throwing bottles, eggs, and other items at them. The Christians were arrested for creating a disturbance. [Ed. note: Article and video of that can be seenhere.] The 6th Circuit Court has overturned a lower court ruling that dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Christians against Wayne County. It is a huge victory for free speech in America.
Court – First Amendment can’t be destroyed because of violence
The Christians were the ones being attacked simply because of their peaceful protest at an Arab Festival in downtown Dearborn. The police, completely cowed by the Muslims, cited the Christians for the disturbance when it was the Muslims who started pitching items at the group. Backwards, obviously. All they have to do is riot, and everybody loses their minds in favor of the rioters.
Christians Sue Wayne County for Civil Rights Violations
The Christians sued the County and LOST with a lower court ruling that the County was justified in destroying the right of free speech in view of the violent Muslims. But justice won out, and with this new ruling on October 28, the county is now liable for the civil rights violations of the Christians who were attacked.
