The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the City of Dearborn in a First Amendment case this week.
Dearborn, Michigan; once the home of Henry Ford, is now an American city with a population that is about 30 percent Arab-American, housing America's largest mosque.
First Amendment, large ethnic Arab population -- during this period of our country's history it doesn't take a legal genius to put the pieces of this puzzle together.
At issue this time was not a mosque controversy, it was a giant Arab party, the Arab International Festival, to be precise. And this time, the issue didn't involve masses of people wanting to keep Arab-Americans out; it involved masses of Arab-Americans wanting to keep certain people in.
Dearborn authorities arrested four members of a Christian group named "Acts 17 Apologetics" for allegedly breaching the peace at the Dearborn Festival when they tried to preach to the droves of Arab-Americans attending the festival. According to The Associated Press, the festival had offered Christian evangelist George Saieg a free booth in 2010, but he and his followers were barred from walking around freely on the sidewalks with literature trying to convert those Muslims in attendance to Christianity.
