Police say they yelled anti-gay slurs over bullhorns during a demonstration

Using a city law passed just last year, police in New Orleans arrested nine preachers for an anti-gay demonstration during Southern Decadence festivities in the French Quarter over the weekend.

Eight of the men were arrested on suspicion of aggressive solicitation under an ordinance that prohibits 'any person or group of persons to loiter or congregate on Bourbon Street for the purpose of disseminating any social, political or religious message between the hours of sunset and sunrise.'
