On Memeorandum nobody has noticed as of 7:53 but this case will decide the future of this country more than any other:

Four Christian missionaries were arraigned today on misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace following their June 18 arrest at the Arab International Festival.

Negeen Mayel, 18, of California; Nabeel Qureshi, 29, of Virginia; Paul Rezkalla, 18 of New York, and David Wood, 34, also of New York, face fines of up to $500 each and up to 93 days in jail. Dearborn authorities said the four “chose to escalate their behavior, which appeared well-orchestrated and deliberate”emphasis mine as they handed out religious literature and talking with people at the festival. The woman and three men are members or founders of a group called “Acts 17 Apologetics.”

They deliberately choose to preach the religion they follow, horrors of horrors. If we allow that then the next thing you know people will think they have freedom of speech or assembly or the right to a jury trial or something! The Thomas Moore Law Center answers:

But Ann Arbor attorney Robert Muise, senior trial counsel with the Thomas More Law Center, said their constitutional rights were violated and they engaged in no illegal behaviors.

“The encroachment of the First Amendment is just astonishing,” said Muise, who said police confiscated the video cameras and have yet to return them, despite repeated requests. He said he would take the case to trial.

“We’re not going to plead to anything because we didn’t do anything wrong,” Muise said.

This is the whole game right here. If it is decided that Christianity can’t be preached in a majority Muslim city in the US then we are finished as a country.

This is where we will find out if our friends on the left have the love of the 1st amendment or a hatred of Christianity. We got one clue yesterday when the FATWA against Molly Norris drew yawns. This will confirm it.

On and you might noticed I tagged this under “war on terror” if you don’t understand that this case is a fight in it then you need to get a clue.

Update: Little Miss Attila gets it.
