Pastor Imprisoned for Preaching From Bible

It’s official; Britain is no longer a free country. In no free country is a Christian pastor hauled off to spend a night in jail for preaching from the Bible.

Via Daily Mail:

John Sherwood, 71, was led away in handcuffs, questioned in a police station and held overnight after being accused of making homophobic comments outside Uxbridge Station in west London.

The same British who heroically held off the Nazi war machine have succumbed to this level of tyranny without firing a shot. That is how much damage moonbattery can inflict on a nation’s character in only two generations.

After someone ratted him out, the police arrested Pastor Sherwood under the Public Order Act, then released him the next day without charge.

No need to sentence pastors to prison if throwing a scare into them might work. If they continue preaching from the Bible rather than from the Guardian, escalation will be required.

Mr Sherwood said officers grilled him over his attitude to gay people. He was even asked what he would do if his children were gay. The married father-of-two said: ‘The question was irrelevant to the allegation against me. I said I would seek to bring them to Christ, but of course I would love them no matter what, because they’re my children.’

Not good enough. We are now required to approve of homosexuality. Mentioning what the Bible has to say about it is off limits. This is why it is only a matter of time until the Bible is banned.

Pastor Sherwood preaches at an evangelical church in north London, but was street preaching in Uxbridge when the authorities shut him down, injuring his wrist and elbow as they yanked him off his perch on a mini-stepladder.

As for his specific thought crime,

A statement posted to a Christian Facebook his supporters read: ‘Whilst he was preaching, he expounded the final verses of Genesis 1, declaring that God’s purpose in creating mankind was to set human beings in families, headed by a father and a mother, not by two fathers, or by two mothers.

‘The distinction within mankind of just two genders, male and female, made in the image of God, constitutes the essence of God’s created order.’

That’s what progressives mean by “hate speech.”

As noted by Pastor Peter Simpson, who was preaching with Pastor Sherwood before the arrest,

‘If there was a [gay] Pride parade in Uxbridge, the police would support it even if Christians were offended.’

That’s because gays are oppressed and Christians are oppressors, according to the liberal narrative.

Continued Pastor Simpson,

‘You don’t have to be an evangelical Christian to be shocked by this. Anyone who cares about liberty should be concerned about what happened in Uxbridge.’

That does not include anyone still willing to identify with the increasingly totalitarian left.
