Wearing a yellow shirt that read “FREE BIBLES,” Brian Johnson returned to Twin Cities Pride Saturday after being asked to leave last year.

“We're here because God broke my heart and gave me a heart of compassion for the homosexual people,” Johnson told Minneapolis-St. Paul NBC affiliate KARE.

Johnson won his fight to return to Loring Park, the site of third largest gay pride festival in the United States, on Friday when a federal judge refused organizers' request to deny Johnson access to the park, but cautioned he could not create a disturbance.

“I'm passing out Bibles to people who ask me for one,” he said. “We're not going up to anybody and trying to start anything. Our shirt says free Bibles, if they want one, they'll get one.”

Johnson was denied a vendor's permit to distribute anti-gay literature and Bibles last year after being an official vendor for over a decade. The Hayward, Wisconsin man and two relatives were arrested when they appeared at the park but charges were later dropped.

Twin Cities Pride board member Jim Kelley called Johnson's presence “offensive” because the festival was suppose to be an affirming event for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
