Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin

Dale McAlpine: preacher arrested for hate speech

Why the “T” in GLBT equals totalitarian.  The Secular Progressive war on Christianity in what used to be the very heart of Christendom is at a very advanced stage.  From the Melanie Phillips column.

Terrifying as this may seem, the attempt to stamp out Christianity in Britain appears to be gathering pace.

Dale McAlpine was preaching to shoppers in Workington, Cumbria, that homosexuality is a sin when he found himself carted off by the police, locked up in a cell for seven hours and charged with using abusive or insulting words or behaviour.

It appears that two police community support officers – at least one of whom was gay – claimed he had caused distress to themselves and members of the public.  Under our anti-discrimination laws, such distress is not to be permitted.

And so we have the oppressive and sinister situation where a gentle, unaggressive Christian is arrested and charged simply for preaching Christian principles.  It would appear that Christianity, the normative faith of this country on which its morality, values and civilisation are based, is effectively being turned into a crime.

Surreally, this intolerant denial of freedom is being perpetrated under the rubric of promoting tolerance and equality – but only towards approved groups. Never has George Orwell’s famous satirical observation, that some people are more equal than others, appeared more true.

This was what caused the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, to protest in a statement to the court that judges were effectively damning Christianity itself as discriminatory and, therefore, bigoted. He was so alarmed by the apparent secular prejudice of the judiciary that he suggested the establishment of a special court to deal with cases of religious discrimination composed of judges with some understanding of religious issues.

As if to prove his point, Lord Justice Laws dismissed all his arguments out of hand with the patronising observation that Lord Carey had not understood the law.

On the contrary, it is surely Lord Justice Laws who does not understand that he and his fellow judges are mistaking secularism for neutrality – confusing the secular onslaught upon religion with the need to hold the ring between competing beliefs.

[…]

Read the rest.  Melanie Phillips is from the UK, and she’s always on point.  The picture she paints is a bleak one.  Secular Humanism/Progressivism is at war with Christianity for the heart and soul of the West.   And we are losing.  It’s not even close.

  1. this man is a brave man and he must keep his Christian faith

    I found myself being put in front of the courts and lots of money stolen off myself by thugs in the use of these laws.

    I feel empathy with this man as he is only preaching Gods word

    see Sunol vs Collier cases and Collier vs Sunol in the NSW administrative decisions tribunals, it is online just type John Christopher Sunol into google or Collier vs Sunol and you will see these cases.

    We are in the end times and this is going to happen all of the time in once Christian nations.

  2. This man is on the same par as me and he is right.

  4. This is wicked, this man has committed no breach of human rights.

    Homosexuality is sin and those who took this man on this charge are going to be punished by God serverly when they meet the lord, Unless they repent of this and proove this man innocent

    He was set up like myself in the Collier vs Sunol case. ia m willing to go to prison in breach of this act as I know that God will blelss me for such defiance.

  5. Homosexuality is sin and to say anything else is wickedness in the eyes of God and witchcraft.

    I think this man is a siant in stating thus

  6. Homosexuality is not only sin, to arrest a person speaking out this and charge them is wickedness and God surely will come against these people. Look at what is happening in the floods in Queensland Australia, the same will happen to anyone who furifies God in a similar way as this man was when he was persecuted
