In Philadelphia, four members of Repent America – with police approval – were arrested for preaching on a public sidewalk. They were preaching, distributing Gospel literature and carrying banners with Biblical messages near “Outfest” a homosexual event.
The radical homosexual activists, Pink Angels, surrounded the group, holding up large pink symbols of angels to cover up the Christians’ messages and they blew high pitched whistles to drown out their preaching. Rather than arrest the homosexual activists who were infringing on the First Amendment Free Speech rights of the Christians, the police arrested and jailed the Christians. The Christians were charged with eight crimes, including three felonies: possession of instruments of crime (a bullhorn), ethnic intimidation (proclaiming homosexuality is a sin) and inciting a riot (reading from Scripture some passages relating to homosexuality).
Fortunately, the Christians won their case in court.
