On Bourbon Street you can show everything (but your faith)

Obviously, this is motivated by money. Virtue is bad for the vice biz. I would say that the inclusion of social and political speech in this ban is just window dressing. The main target is religion. Darkness...the absence of light!

On October 26, 2011, the city of New Orleans criminalized religious expression on Bourbon Street.

Subsequently, in May of this year, a preacher from Vieux Carre Assembly of God Church was told by police that he could not continue discussing religion on Bourbon Street, even though he had been preaching there for the past 30 years every Tuesday and Friday evening.

The new rules were quietly put in place when Mayor Mitch Landrieu approved a ban on loitering or congregating “for the purpose of disseminating any social, political, or religious message between the hours of sunset and sunrise.”...
