Evangelist Strikes Back With Lawsuit


An evangelist in Illinois is suing the city of Naperville for being ticketed while street preaching last month, allegedly because a sign he carried was a violation of an ordinance regulating street sign location.

In September, Elmer Joe Christopherson of Burning Hearts Outreach Ministries says he and his colleagues had been witnessing for about three hours before the incident occurred, and he had been using the sign the entire time.

“It’s a 4′ x 6′ sign on a twelve-foot pole. It said, ‘Lied? Stolen? Lusted? Abortion? Stop sinning. Call on the Lord Jesus and escape hell fire,” explains Christopherson. (Read the rest at One News Now here.)
