Judge OKs Christian group to hand out fliers at St. Louis PrideFest
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A federal judge says a Christian ministry has the right to distribute literature and discuss its religious viewpoint at the annual gay pride event known as Pride Festival this weekend in St. Louis.
U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey's order was issued Tuesday but announced Thursday. It came after a religious group called Apple of His Eye Inc. sought to stop the city of St. Louis from enforcing a policy it used in 2006 to ban the same group from expressing its views.
Autrey agreed the ban is unconstitutional.
The city did not immediately respond to the ruling.
PrideFest organizers declined requests for interviews, saying they didn't want to give attention to a group they described as religious "fanatics."
