A man was touring a mall in Minnesota this past January and was intercepted by the mall’s security guards. According to them, he needed to leave the mall because he was wearing a shirt with the words “Jesus saves.” The guards in question alleged that his shirt offended other visitors. This situation was recorded in a video, which had thousands of views on social networks and generated controversy.
Paul Shoro, according to his account, was handing out gospel songs on the Mall of America when guards approached. One of them even told him “If you want to buy here, you must take off that shirt”.
The incident was a topic of conversation for several days in the local media.
Premier Christian News reported:
In an interview after the event, Shoro said that when asked to take off his shirt, he said he would rather ‘go to jail’ than do so.
He also explained that he had previously been to the mall to preach the Gospel, but was told it was not allowed.”
This issue occurred as a result of the mall’s policies prohibiting all types of demonstrations, protests, or petitions. At the end, the man was allowed to remain in place.
