Dallas Man Can Share His Faith at Transit Station

A man told by police that he can’t engage in free speech at a Dallas transit station without purchasing a ticket has been restored his First Amendment rights. Upon receiving a letter from the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) agreed to allow Daniel Bailey to continue his activities without buying a ticket.Bailey has been sharing his faith and handing out Gospel tracts at the station for two years.“Christians should not be treated as second-class citizens simply because they choose to exercise their faith in public,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Erik Stanley. “We appreciate the quick and courteous response of DART officials in resolving this matter and are pleased that Mr. Bailey will now be able to return to his activities.”

As in the days of Noah...
