    You should not believe everything God tells you. All the fun things to do in life are a sin.

    If they caused a nuisance to a trader by stopping customers come in, and annoying a load of people leading to a crowd to start chanting at them then it's public disorder regardless of what they were saying.

    The issue was not really what they were saying, but rather that after being told to move along by the police, they chose not to. Which means that the court has said you don't have to do what the police tell you. So good result, all in all.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    People should be able to say what they think but shouting it out in a public place is rather different.

    Sounds like the crowd yelled at them, too. So it's mutual. And I'm sure Mohammed, if he would only express his view, would say they are liars, too. It's mutual. And presumably most gays think these guys were being immoral in saying those things, so that's mutual, too.

    So the crowd, Mohammed, and the gays in the crowd (if any) didn't get arrested, or get told to move on by the police. So sounds like an equitable judgment to me.

    Why do we need laws against saying stupid things loudly, anyway? We send people to Westminster to say stupid things loudly for five years. Unless they are actually advocating violence, let them speak.

    If I had a shop and you stood shouting in front of it then I would be tempted to get my cricket bat* out from under the counter to move you on.

    This is why all shops should sell baseball bats.
