CWN Editor's Note: “Ryan Denton is an evangelical Christian, and proselytizing is a tenet of his faith,” the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals noted in its decision. “When he arrived at the El Paso Art and Farmers Market to proselytize, City officials told Denton that City policy prohibited proselytizing within the Market’s perimeter. Denton sued.”
