VIDEO: 71-Year-Old London Pastor Arrested On The Streets For Preaching

The facts don’t lie! There’s an active war waged against Christianity, and it’s been escalating unabatedly for a long time now.

To stop this, we have to do something about it; And to be honest it doesn’t help having a left leaning pope.

According to news reports out today, it looks like Christians aren’t allowed to share their beliefs in the streets of London governed by a Muslim mayor.

Anyone who cares about Christian liberties should be concerned about what happened in London. It’s a start.

Democrats back here at home don’t hide their innate resentments against Christians.

Here’s more on this story:

Breitbart had this to report on the story:

Police in London arrested a Christian street preacher for allegedly causing “alarm and distress” to pedestrians for citing allegedly “homophobic” verses from Genesis.

On Friday, Pastor John Sherwood was preaching alongside Pastor Peter Simpson of the Penn Free Methodist Church outside the Uxbridge Underground Station — in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s own constituency.

Writing in the Conservative Woman on Tuesday, Pastor Simpson said that Sherwood preached on the final verses of Genisis 1, saying: “God’s design 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.”

Simpson said that the police informed them that three complaints were made in response to the street sermon.

He said that a police officer warned that he and Sherwood should avoid making any “homophobic statements” and that there is “no freedom to make statements which offend people”.

The police ultimately dragged Sherwood off his step stool and forcibly handcuffed the septuagenarian preacher.

“This dignified man of God, who is in his early 70s, was marched off to a nearby police car, as one of the helpers from my church cried out, ‘What has happened to us as a nation that a man can no longer preach from the Bible?” Pastor Simpson related.

Video of the incident was published on social media by the Charity Christian Concern

The Blaze had more to add:

Police in London arrested a 71-year-old Christian pastor for preaching “allegedly homophobic comments” — but John Sherwood said he merely defined marriage as between men and women, the Daily Mail reported.

What are the details?

The outlet said video shows Sherwood standing on a stepladder Friday with a Bible in his hand outside a subway station in Uxbridge, west London. Officers can be heard telling Sherwood, a married grandfather, to get off the stepladder, the Daily Mail reported.

But he refused, the outlet said, so the officers grasp his arms and pull him off the stepladder.

Onlookers can be heard shouting, “He’s an elderly man; take it easy with him!” the Daily Mail said.

At one point, Sherwood wrests his left arm free — and the officer forcefully grabs it again, as a minor struggle ensues between the elderly man and the officers.

The officers then struggle to cuff him, as one tells him, “I don’t want you getting hurt,” the outlet reported.

What did police have to say?

The Metropolitan Police said a member of the public flagged down patrol officers and alleged that Sherwood had made homophobic comments, the outlet said. Police then arrested him under the Public Order Act, which the Daily Mail said “can be used under the vague proviso that someone is using ‘abusive or insulting words’ that cause ‘harm’ to someone else.”

A police spokesman told the outlet that the directorate of professional standards reviewed video of the arrest and had found no evidence of officer misconduct.
