Deadwood, South Dakota Votes to Repeal Fortune-Telling Ban

February 11th, 2014 § 0 comments

Last month, I wrote that Deadwood, South Dakota was considering the repeal of a ‘fortune-telling’ ban that’s been on their books for the last twenty years.

Well, they did it. According to RapidCityJournal.com, last week, the City Commissioners voted 3-1 to repeal the ordinance.

They decided that the ban was likely a violation of the US First Amendment and didn’t want to be accused of restricting anyone’s freedom of speech or religious practice.

There will be a second reading of the repeal on February 17th. I’ll be watching out to see what happens and will keep you posted.
