This is another one of those situations lately where Christians involved with street ministry -preaching or handing out tracts have been subjected to threats or arrests by the police in America.
The incident happened in Buffalo, New York during the Italian Festival last year. The police threatened to arrest a Christian man who was sharing his faith on public streets and sidewalks and ordered the him leave the festival.
The police are entirely wrong here since the Constitution guarantees free speech and the free expression of religion. The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) filed a federal lawsuit last Thursday against the city of Buffalo over the incident.
