Street Preacher Arrested After Holding ‘Love Muslims, Hate Islam’ Placard Will Not Be Prosecuted

(Christian Concern) A Christian street preacher who was arrested and held for 13 hours in a police cell, after displaying placards depicting love for Muslims and criticising the ideology of Islam, has been informed by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that no charges will be brought against him.

    Hopefully this will set a trend in England. Unfortunately, the cult of Islam is very powerful in England- even more influential than here in the states. I’d be surprised if this doesn’t generate riots, threats, and possibly martyrdom for this brave man.

    Freedom of speech is disappearing quickly over there.
    But we must proceed as instructed to by the Lord.
    This obviously is persecution, which is no excuse to stop,
    and in fact He told us it is coming, which we see increasing
    all around us against true Christians like us who are
    His witnesses.

    Persecution is no longer a ‘far off thing’ that only happens in places with names like qatar and north korea, persecution against Christians is on the rise right here in the West, on our own soil.

      Even more so- in San Francisco, the Prayer Patriots were beaten up by Antifa thugs and the Democrat controlled media justified the beatings saying the Prayer Patriots are Nazis and White Supremacists. The reason they are Nazis- they believe in the Biblical concept that it is a sin for men to have sex with other man or women with women. To believe that way in 2017 qualifies you as a Nazi with today’s atheists/leftists/Democrats.
