Dearborn, Michigan is reported to be the home of the largest concentration of Muslims in the United States. With numbers come power and evidently their numbers have given them power over the city government. The results are a continued assault on the rights of Christians living in Dearborn.
Dearborn hosted an Arab Festival a couple of years ago. Four Christian missionaries tried to minister to the Muslims outside the festival, but were arrested by local police for doing so. A Christian minister was also arrested outside the same festival for handing out tracts. All of them brought suit against the City of Dearborn for violating their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and religion and won their cases against the city.
But evidently, Dearborn officials have not given up in their crusade to silence Christians in their town.
In the latest episode, Dearborn city officials are trying to use a subversive method of silencing Christians. A local pastor and his associates filed an application with the Dearborn Police Department, seeking permission to assemble outside the largest mosque in all of North America to speak out against Sharia law. Before approving the application, city officials had one slight stipulation in that they wanted the pastor and his associates to give up all of their rights if anything happened.
The pastor and his associates felt the stipulation placed upon them by the city was illegal and unconstitutional. With the help of the Thomas More Law Center, the group has filed suit against the city. They also filed for an emergency injunction to allow the group to carry out their plans to speak this coming Saturday.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center issued the following statement,
“Just recently, Dearborn police demanded that [the pastor] sign this ‘Hold Harmless’ agreement, which would waive all rights that he would have and … would make him and his organization responsible for anything that occurred while he was engaged in his free-speech activities.”
It’s interesting to see Muslims fight for their own rights and then turn around and strip those same rights away from anyone else of a different religion, especially Christians. Their goal is not equality, but supreme superiority and power and they will stop at nothing until they achieve that goal and all of us infidels are silenced or chained.
