New Orleans ends ban on nighttime preaching
Catholic World News - July 30, 2013
The New Orleans city council has voted unanimously to end a 2011 ban on disseminating “any social, political, or religious message between the hours of sunset and sunrise” on Bourbon Street.
In 2012, three street preachers who denounced homosexuality during a gay pride festival were arrested under the ordinance. A federal judge soon blocked enforcement of the measure, which also banned “conduct which reasonably tends to arouse alarm or anger in others.”
