I thought the USSC had ruled that such places were the new "public square"?

.
(headline says he was kicked out, bullet points says he was allowed to stay...?)

Gave me a flashback to the time, many years ago, that I was working in a shipyard on the Gulf Coast. We had a large population of "preachers" who made a habit of writing "Jesus Saves" on, of all places" the walls of the latrines. We also had a few heathen who would go behind them and write "S&H Green Stamps" right under.:LOL:

I mean I support the freedom of speech, even if I don't agree with the message. But was he kicked out because of the shirt? Or was it because he was harassing customers? From the article it just sounds like he was loitering and accosting people with paper.

If he's hearing voices he probably doesn't need to be around people anyway. He needs to take his scizo meds.

Maybe he was "proselytizing" shoppers in the way that the JWs knock on people's doors and push their "paperwork" at them. It can be quite irritating.
If he was just standing there, handing out flyers to people that approached him, then he did nothing wrong.
