if someone is reading the bible in public and u don't want to hear it, don't listen, walk away or start reading another book out loud, its our right as humans to do what we want were we want when we want, reading a book doesn't warrant an arrest.

read the bible out loud in church or home, not in public.
i applaud the police for doing this. i would applaud them for arresting anyone reading religious text in public out loud. i dont think it has much to do with taking away free speech as it does preventing conflict which discussing religion or doing what that guy is doing, usually does.
but i guess that makes me a nazi, yes?
also evangelicals are just as bad as southern baptist. no one wants to listen to them and their nonsense.edit on 5-4-2012 by XelNaga because: (no reason given)
