Michigan: County to Pay $197k for Violating Christians’ Rights, Defending Violent Muslim Mobs

I.e., enforcing sharia. To our knowledge, not one of the violent Muslim attackers was arrested or charged.

Detroit, Michigan (September 28, 2016) — Today, a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan entered final judgment in favor of a group of Christian evangelists who were violently attacked by a hostile Muslim mob while preaching at the Arab Festival in Dearborn, Michigan in 2012.

The case, Bible Believers v. Wayne County, was brought by the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) on behalf of the Christians.  As a result of this judgment, Wayne County agreed to pay $197,500 in attorneys’ fees and costs.

This judgment brings to a conclusion the lengthy and hard fought litigation in this matter—litigation which included a full court (en banc) review by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

On October 28, 2015, a majority of the full court of the Sixth Circuit ruled in favor of the Christians.  The en banc court completely reversed a lower court decision which ruled in favor of Wayne County and officials from the County Sheriff’s Office who silenced the Christians’ speech in response to the hostile mob’s reaction.

Previously, however, on August 27, 2014, a divided, three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit dismissed the civil rights lawsuit, finding that the violent response of the Muslim hecklers justified the Wayne County sheriffs’ order to the Christians that they would be arrested for disorderly conduct if they did not leave the festival area.

Within days of receiving the adverse ruling, AFLC filed a petition for rehearing en banc, requesting full court review.  On October 23, 2014, the court granted the petition and vacated the panel decision.  Oral argument before the full court was held on March 4, 2015, in Cincinnati, Ohio.

On October 28, 2015, the Sixth Circuit (en banc) ruled in favor of the Christians, completely reversing the lower court opinion.

In its decision, which was made final today by the entry of judgment in the district court, the Sixth Circuit ruled, among other things, that two Deputy Chief defendants from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office were liable for violating the Christians’ First Amendment rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion and for depriving the Christians of the equal protection of the law.  The court ruled that these individual defendants did not enjoy qualified immunity.

AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel Robert J. Muise commented,

“This decision was a major victory for the Constitution and for all freedom-loving Americans.  It affirms that the First Amendment protects speech critical of Islam and that when the government seeks to suppress such speech by enforcing a heckler’s veto that favors the violent Muslim mob over the free speech rights of Christians, the government will pay dearly for this egregious violation of the Constitution.”

For a glimpse of what is being imported into America and the literal battles that your children and theirs will be fighting in the streets of America in the near future, watch how mobs of Muslims of all ages – boys and girls, men and women – attack Americans exercising their rights in Michigan:

  1. In obamaland these are mot moslems but VOTING COLONISTS. Its not now nor has it ever been what is just under law. obama is African and no better able to understand western civilization than the immigrants. Or else he is a calculating, vicious, self-serving resident of the U.S.

    • @David Rasch Hello, David. Here’s any amount of money–Obomba-hole IS BOTH of the options that you offered! He is NOT an American by birth! And–he is EVERY BIT as much a COLONIST MUZZLUM as the MUZZSLIMES that he is constantly defending! And just for the record, I can’t help asking the question–Why was the reimbursement fine apparently limited to “Court fees”? COURT FEES!!!??? In other words, these Christian American evangelists of the Gospel were NOT awarded EVEN ONE RED CENT for all of the harassment, embarrassment and trouble which the MUZZLUM THUGS caused to them????? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?????

      • If I were muslim I’d paraphrase a supreme court justice(Tanney 1850’s Dred Scott) and say there are no rights a COLONIST is bound to respect regarding Natives.

  2. Why can’t these Muslims be charged with a hate crime??? Stoning Christians doesn’t sound like an act of love!!! The fine should be doubled and the Muslims should be facing jail time for assault and battery along with the two Deputy Chiefs. The American people should demand equal justice. CAIR wants to apply the HATE CRIME every time someone puts bacon on their filthy Mosques.

  3. Also, the Muslims involved and the police officers should be sent to a sensitivity class at the Christian evangelists church. This is what the Muslims get as part of their judgements. What happened to equal justice??? The law only works for the Muslim free speech, the American people can go to hell???? We need to pass legislation to get this Muslim trash out of this country. Shariah Law is invalid in America!!!!

    • @eagle669. Yes! I couldn’t agree more! Make the muzzies attend a week-long Gospel Crusade conducted by a “fire-baptized” truth-screamin’ preacher!!! Hey, I can dream, can’t I????

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
