The Pierce County Herald ia reporting that Federal District Judge Michael Davis that that a Wisconsin street preacher will not be allowed to distribute Bibles at the Minneapolis  Pride Festival in the city’s Loring Park.

Brian  Johnson of Hayward sought an injunction giving him unfettered access to the  festival grounds.

But Chief Federal District Judge Michael Davis  issued a 41-page ruling yesterday explaining why Johnson’s constitutional  challenge is not likely to succeed. Davis said Johnson would have to confine  himself to a booth just outside the event. His attorney from the Center for  Religious Expression says his client is being relegated to a quote, ‘no pride  zone’ where nobody will go – and therefore, his free speech rights are being  violated. But the judge said the booth is right next to a  picnic-and-entertainment area close to one of the park’s main entrances. Still,  attorney Nate Kellum says he’s exploring other legal options to get Johnson  inside.”

Wherever these people go is always a “no pride zone” as well as a “no humanity”, “no compassion” and “no intelligence” zone as well.

Cue the gnashing of teeth, the clutching of pearls and the screams of “Christian Victimhood” in 4…. 3…. 2…. 1…..

    The haters and bigots are so ubiquitous that it’s considered to be part of the entertainment to see how they’ll be quelled by the likes of loud motorcycles, music, human fences/barriers with festive costumes/props, etc… Y*A*Y for P*R*I*D*E MONTH — E*Q*U*A*L*I*T*Y FOR A*L*L WILL SOON BE A R*E*A*L*I*T*Y!!!…

    Clearly this turd is doing nothing but trying to provoke trouble. Imagine it a gay group wanted to provide AIDS education or hand out free condoms at a bible picnic? The world would surely end.

    Christian fundamentalist are sad sick fucks.
