Appeal Filed In Philly Gay Pride Protest Case

A notice of appeal to the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals was filed last Tuesday in Startzell v. City of Philadelphia. (Alliance Defense Fund release.) Last month in the case, a Pennsylvania federal district court upheld the city of Philadelphia that had applied its permit requirements to prevent a group of evangelical Christians from disseminating anti-gay messages at a 2004 gay pride event.
