-Scotland: US Street Preacher Arrested For Calling Homosexuality a Sin

by Dr. D ~ January 13th, 2014

An American street preacher was arrested in Scotland for naming homosexuality among a list of sins mentioned in the Bible. Here’s the story from the Christian Post:

Milano’s colleague, Pastor Josh Williamson of the Craigie Reformed Baptist Church in Perth, pointed out, "Tony wasn’t focusing just on homosexual practice – it was about all sin."

Milano, the second street preacher to address lunchtime shoppers on Wednesday, was preaching about sin in general. He then turned to mention sexual sin, including adultery, promiscuity, and homosexuality.

As Milano started preaching about sin, a woman reportedly yelled at him, shouting that her son was gay. Williamson said she tried to smash the camera he was using to film Milano’s preaching. The woman threatened she would get the preachers arrested, and proceeded to call the police.

Response: This is not the first time a Christian preacher has been arrested in the UK for naming homosexuality as a sin. Certain passages in the Bible which teach against homosexuality are now considered hate speech and ‘homophobic.’ Since hate speech and ‘homophobic’ language is against the law in the UK then preachers who continue to read and preach in public from the whole Bible and teach traditional Christian understandings about sin and homosexuality are now at risk and subject to arrest.

One interesting wrinkle is the fact that you will never see a Muslim leader or imam ever arrested for a similar infraction even though their teaching on homosexuality from the Quran is even more radical and severe. In that case, Islamophobia trumps homophobia?            *Top
