Thoughts on this story? Was it right for the police to arrest him if he did condemn homosexuality? Is it a breech of the freedom of speech policy? Do you think that the Police Community Support Officer, who was gay, took the matter personally or professionally? Is this a case of shunning religious freedom in a largely secular society?
A Christian street preacher in Cumbria has been arrested and charged with a crime after he expressed his religious beliefs about homosexual conduct.

Well, first, this happened in England- different country, different laws. I don't know much about England's laws but if he didn't do what they are accusing him of then I feel bad for him. However, if he as a street preacher was going around and shouting on the streets "Homo's are going to hell", then I can see where the police would arrest him for public disturbance.

I'm sure they arrested him for being a public nuisance.
