This is an example of what is soon to become world wide for all Christians who spread biblical testimonies for the sake of World Peace, One World Order, and One World Religion under the One World Church. Jesus Christ is returning soon, repent now before its to late, this could be your last warning.
I pray that Lord Jesus Christ will touch the hearts of all who read this post and open your eyes up to the truth and gives everyone the courage to repent and accept them in their heart by the power of the HOLY GHOST. Amen

He was impeding business, these people were waiting in line at the DMV. They either would have to stand there to hold their place and listen to his preaching or they would have to leave and lose their place. If they wanted to conduct their business they literally would have no choice but to listen to this man's sermon.
It's like being forced to "go to church" when all you wanted was to renew your driver's license. It is not the same as preaching on a street corner or on church/home property.
Captive-Audience Doctrine Law & Legal Definition
Captive-audience doctrine refers to a legal principle prohibiting a person from making intrusive speech. It is also known as the captive-audience rule. The rule is recognized under both constitutional law and labor law. Under labor law, the rule prohibits a party to a union election from making a speech on company time to a mass assembly of employees within 24 hours of an election.
However, the captive-audience doctrine does not apply when the unwilling audience is located on a public street or sidewalk because they can avoid the unwanted message simply by walking away or averting their eyes. The captive-audience doctrine can be used outside the residential setting when the degree of captivity makes it impractical for the unwilling viewer or auditor to avoid exposure. [Sabelko v. City of Phoenix, 846 F. Supp. 810, 825 (D. Ariz. 1994)].

well phrased, thank you ZM
- it is very Cowardice to try preach like that
and tells a lot about the person doing it.
As well about his 'faith'
But, do you believe it is a crime for which they should have been arrested? If so, why?
