Judge Bans Protesters from Columbus Church

On Wednesday, a Franklin County judge has ruled that members of a national conservative Christian group cannot protest in the land in front of one of the region’s largest churches.

Common Pleas Judge Charles Schneider wrote that Minutemen United protesters were trespassing when they held demonstrations in front of Vineyard Columbus.

The protesting group argued that it was expressing its message within the public right of way, but Schneider ruled that the public’s right of way ends at the edge of the road along the church, which has no curb or sidewalk.

Vineyard is an orthodox, evangelical church. Minutemen United are targeting Vineyard because it’s been too passive when it comes to fighting “the culture war” against abortion, homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
