Damon Atkins, the Christian preacher who was arrested last month and ordered to "respect" LGBTs by police while protesting a "Pride" march in Reading, Pennsylvania, is suing city officials for violating his constitutional rights.
"In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, plaintiff Damon Atkins claimed that when police placed him in handcuffs during a June 3 Pride event at Reading City Hall, they acted in retaliation against his religious viewpoints and were guilty of violating his First and Fourth Amendment rights," WFMZ reports.
"The lawsuit names the two officers present that day as well as the mayor, police chief and the City of Reading as defendants," WFMZ noted. "The suit seeks unspecified damages as well as court costs and fees."

Damon Atkins, of Reading, Pennsylvania, was arrested on June 3 for publicly quoting a portion of a Bible verse while standing across the street from a homosexual pride festival. Atkins was held for several hours before being released with criminal charges and a court date set. The Berks County District Attorney later dropped all charges against Atkins.Atkins deserves major kudos for standing up to these petty tyrants.
