What Is Religious Freedom?

This was not an issue of religious freedom

The proposed referendum was rejected because the organizers did not gather the requisite number of verified signatures. So, they sued, and the City has to defend itself in court. Attorneys in such matters always subpoena all relevant documents, even some they never use, to provide a good defense. No one said the pastors couldn't say whatever they said. Anyhow, the issue's moot, as the subpoenas were withdrawn. There's no inherent right to compel a referendum. All jurisdictions require certain procedures, and this group failed to follow those.
