Legal Question

Asked on: 3/28/11, 5:04 pm

I attended a church function, that was advertised as "Fun and Game" night - all are welcome. When I got there I saw a table with 6 people playing cards, My denomination frowns on this activity so I wanted to report this to a higher level in the church and I started to videorecord the game, while I was recording the Pastor came over, grabbed the camera and after a struggle, he wrestled it out of my hand. My camera was returned without the tape and I was escorted out of the church.

Do I have a right to take video of a public event with no sign saying "no cameras" on the advertisement or at the event itself? What are my rights to get the tape back?
