English preacher jailed for calling homosexuality a sin 

Posted: 05 May 2010 10:46 AM PDT

So it's come to this (at least in England at this point...).  Several 
days ago (May 2nd), a Baptist preacher on the streets of Workington, 
Cumbria (Unitied Kingdom) became involved in a heated discussion with a 
pedestrian who disagreed and took offense when the preacher said that he 
believe that homosexuality was a sin.  But that wasn't the end of it.

It turns out that merry old England is a good bit farther down the 
"political correctness" road than America and, as a result, the preacher 
was put in jail for "abusive or insulting" language.

So how did it get to this point?  The law in question began with the 
English 1986 "Public Order Act", which was initially meant to deal with 
actual violence.  But like everything else having to do with government, 
it metastasized and grew into a legal code covering everything from 
violence and public disorder to simple speech that the hyper-sensitive, 
politically correct crowd (read: liberals) might be offended by.

In fact, the law has "evolved" to the point where they have "Police 
Community Support Officers" which are essentially busybody citizens who 
have power to enforce things like this speech code and, as you can 
guess, the offended liberal dutifully reporter the street preachers 
"hate speech" to one of these officers and he was arrested and thrown in 
jail. * read more »* 

Islam is a VERY backward religion, that MUST keep it's masses not only
in subjugation, but ignorant and maintain a feudal state that is always
at war, looking to take over the spoils of other societies. It is by
nature destructive and not constructive. The Q'oran is based on distortions
of the Bible, paganism, racism, hate, contradictions, and ignorance, with
a good dose of stupidity thrown in for good measure. -Fred A. Miller
