Religious liberty has faced unprecedented attacks across the country.
Bakers, florists, and photographers have been fined or forced to close their businesses just for refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding or any other activity which violates their freedom of conscience.
Now, police officers are arresting people for reading the Bible out loud in public?
That’s what happened to Mark Mackey of Hemet, California.
He was just reading the Bible outside of a local DMV, when a local California Highway Patrol officer Darren Meyers arrested him.
Mackey was later charged with interfering or obstructing a private business, even though he was not bothering anyone.
A video of the event clearly proved that the CHP officer was lying—and that had not violated the law:
But good news!
Advocates for Faith and Freedom filed a federal lawsuit for the unlawful arrest of this man.
A criminal court in Riverside County found him “Not Guilty”.
And the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals—the most liberal federal appeals court in the country—ruled in favor of Mr. Mackey, that he had every right to read from the Bible in a public place.
