IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH COMING TO AN END IN AMERICA? 10/21/2009


By Moody Adams
“The chief of an evangelical ministry called Repent America has filed a civil lawsuit against the National Park Service for restricting his speech at the Liberty Bell Center in Philadelphia, which houses the artifact from American history that rang to announce the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence and is inscribed with "Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the inhabitants thereof," a biblical quotation from Leviticus 25:10,” reports By Bob Unruh of WorldNetDaily>

A lawsuit is being brought by Repent America's Michael Marcavage, who was fined and given probation for speaking on public property. People marching for Breast Cancer Prevention were allowed on the same side walk.

"In the birthplace of American freedom, at the site of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, people now do not have a right to stand on a public sidewalk and express their beliefs – in this particular case, the gospel of Jesus Christ," Marcavage has said. "And if [authorities] can shut down the gospel from being preached, they can shut down any message."
