New York Times:

After asserting their right to annoy in defiance of a government ban, Australian protesters received Federal Court backing today. The court, in rejecting a recently adopted regulation against any acts of “annoyance” at an event headlined by Pope Benedict XVI, made this key ruling, according to The Sydney Morning Herald:

There was “no intelligible boundary” on what “causes annoyance”.

So one man’s irritant, as the saying goes, is another man’s principled opposition to Vatican policies on sex and women’s rights.
