    But a guy read a Bible. Hang him.
    I have a question was this man in violation of the law?

    From what I understand from the Blaze and Fox article is, this guy and two others were out there reading the Bible at the DMV before hours. Cop came and arrested them for doing it without a permit. Cop was a dick because he probably should have just told them to get lost and come back with the permit, but he did what he did. The point is, he wasn't arrested for reading the Bible to people outside the DMV, he wasn't arrested because there is a war on Christanity. He was simply arrested for being there without a permit, which is required. If I were him, I would get a permit for a month and be out there until it opens.

    That sounds like a way to irritate the crap out of them for sure. I still think this is dumb bordering on stupid.

    Then perhaps the cop should not have said "You can preach on your own property".

    Also no permit is required to read out loud in a public space. If I went there and read Green Eggs & Ham out loud to everyone should I get arrested?

    Well that was dumb too. There were quite a few who seemed a little froggy on this, especially the high rollers with the big mouths.

    I think the cop was being a dick and should not have arrested him. However, again, the police department said to do something on the DMV property that isn't involved with the DMV requires a permit. My purpose in saying that was not to give excuse to the cop, because I think what he did is not very excusable, but rather to say he was not stopped because he was X religion or they are taking away X religion's right to speak.

    Re: Man Arrested For Reading The Bible Out Loud

    Interesting debate, property rights vs freedom of speech and religion.

    Same discussion goes on in firearms forums when companies ban weapons from their buildings and parking lots.

    I suppose it gains more attention to call it a war on Christian Folk, attempts to keep the victim myth going a bit longer.

    If it was me I'd drag off all those people who use those ear buds and talk so loud while out in public as if the rest of us and our peace of mind don't matter.

    I got it the 1st time. You'd drag off the preacher and destroy the victim myth, right?
