Settlement Lets Christian Preach in Public Square

MODESTO, Calif.-Attorneys for a Christian street preacher have reached a settlement with the city of Modesto, California, that allows him to keep sharing the gospel.The Alliance Defense Fund filed suit on behalf of Kevin Borden(picture left)in July to challenge Modesto’s attempts to block him from preaching in the city’s public square on Saturday evenings.The city prevented Borden from preaching outside theaters in the square for 10 months by claiming the private business was renting the plaza, making it akin to private property.Under the settlement approved by a federal judge, taxpayers will pay Borden’s legal expenses.
As in the days of Noah...
