Jamaican Government Bans Preaching On Public Buses
In the Caribbean island nation of Jamaica, the government operated transit system has banned the practice of preaching to captive audiences on buses after complaints from some passengers. Both AP and Jamaica Gleaner report that a directive has been given to drivers to politely tell preachers that they must stop their evangelizing. Blind lay preacher Robert Lawson argues that the new order infringes his freedom of speech and religion.
