Easter service invite leads to Police questioning


Please watch this short clip.

When people cannot out reason the Christian faith they often resort to more coercive approaches.

If I complained about a gay rights stall I would probably be arrested. The pressure is on the police. If they had ignored the gay man's complaints, they would have been in for a world of trouble.

Why on earth one policeman couldn't have strolled over, taken some literature, checked it and concluded the gay man was overreacting is beyond me.

Problem is - when "we" were in the majority, we didn't stick up for the gay people's right to disagree, did we? Or really anyone else's for that matter...

I know that doesn't materially affect things, but it does help me to understand what, at first glance, just seems to insane a response to comprehend.

Dan, you have a bit of a point - but not a strong one. Where we do need to take note is that seeking to quosh the freedom of speech is always mischevious and dishonest: whether it is someone seeking to do it to Christians or Christians seeking to do it to others.

But it does also throw up the curious possibility of a complaint to the police on the grounds of 'hate' incitement when our right to speak of Jesus with clarity is challenged in such a mischevious way!
