Evangelical Fined for Witnessing on Public Property

From OneNewsNow, we have this report from the weekend where a church leader was fined and placed on one year's criminal probation for expressing his religious views on public grounds.

Ironic, this was done on the grounds near the Liberty Bell, huh?

The leader of a Christian evangelical group who expressed his religious views to tourists near the Liberty Bell was placed on one year's probation for refusing to move from a sidewalk where demonstrations are banned.

Repent America director Michael A. Marcavage, 28, of Lansdowne, Pa., was sentenced Friday after a two-day bench trial. He was fined $420 and ordered to notify the National Park Service and get a permit if he planned to return to the site.
