Where is the US headed? Well, certainly NOT where the founders intended. Given some of the trash protected as free speech, this guy shouldn't have been arrested. Read the story of the pastor arrested on a sidewalk for holding a sign of the 10 commandments.
I this latest case, the Christian activist notes, "I was arrested on a public sidewalk, three years ago, for holding a sign [bearing an inscription] of the Ten Commandments." He says the United States marshal who accosted him that day told him "Reverend Mahoney, you can be here. You just can't hold that sign."
Since Mahoney chose not to surrender his sign, he says he was taken into custody. However, he contends his arrest was a blatant violation of his constitutional rights, since "I was arrested not for my conduct but for my beliefs."
