Baltimore argues Catholic group’s rally could bring violence

A conservative Roman Catholic media outlet that wants to stage a rally at a waterfront pavilion in Baltimore claims city officials canceled the event because they disapprove of its religious message. The city says the gathering poses a threat to public safety, citing the fringe group’s cheerleading of rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol in January. The event planners are asking a federal judge to decide whether the city is trampling on their First Amendment rights. U.S. District Judge Ellen Hollander scheduled a hearing Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021 for the lawsuit filed Sept. 13 by St. Michael’s Media against the city, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott and City Solicitor James Shea.
