Another attack on Christianity and freedom of speech and expression.
How disconcerting it is to realize that Americans can be arrested for spreading Christianity in their own country. Wasn’t this something that was supposed to happen only in Islamic nations? Well times are changing America and you are asleep at the wheel. H/t Creeping Sharia.
“A pastor is facing a court date after sharing the gospel with Muslims — in Kansas.
About 14 people, including three senior pastors, went to the local mosque to distribute to Muslims packets containing the books of John and Romans in English and Arabic and a DVD with testimonies of former Muslims. Pastor Mark Holick of Spirit One Christian Center was one of those passing out the packets to people leaving the mosque.
Holick tells OneNewsNow that when local police officers arrived on the scene, he was handcuffed then detained in a patrol car, where he repeatedly asked what crime he had committed.
‘And then about 15 minutes later, 20 minutes later, something like that, they finally came over and told me that I was being charged with ‘loitering’ and ‘failure to disperse,’‘ the pastor shares.
Asked if this episode occurred in Saudi Arabia, he replies, with a chuckle: ‘No, this was in Wichita, Kansas.’
The pastor says it was very disconcerting to see the gospel squelched — especially on a public sidewalk in a country with a constitutional guarantee of free speech. Holick believes police are suggesting that he was blocking traffic on the driveway.
‘Of course we never did do that,’ he assures. ‘There would be no reason for us to block vehicles — and they probably have no idea how much I like all of my organs and bones perfectly in the position they’re in right now.’
Holick says serious free-speech rights are in question, so he is asking the Alliance Defense Fund to represent him. There has been no decision on that so far.”
It is disconcerting that a pastor in the state of Florida with a congregation of 50 is under attack by millions throughout the world for threatening to burn the Quran. Even more disconcerting and overwhelming is that a large portion of those doing the attacking is American. These attacks because of one man taking a stand have received top billing in the media.
In the meantime, another pastor ends up getting arrested for attempting to share God’s word in front of a Kansas mosque and has received no media attention whatsoever.
What is wrong with you America? Where are you going and why are you so willing to be lead there?
While two wrongs do not make a right, we cannot get back to our morals and God by selling our souls and dancing with the devil. It does not work that way.
During the past week, I have heard the Florida pastor referred to as an opportunist, nut job, extremist, un-American, anti-Muslim and many of those who are doing the name-calling have in the past year and a half been called the same names themselves.
Those same voices who demand that we get back to God, our morals and stand up for our Constitutional rights have attacked this man for exercising his.
What is up with that? What are you doing America? Are we starting to turn on each other? Are we allowing ourselves to be spun around like spinning tops to be manipulated and so easily distracted? Whether it is by progressives, their media or Muslims, we need to get a grip and stop it now!
Are we going to label for the sake of our conscience the pastor who was arrested in Kansas an opportunist, nut job, extremist, un-American, anti-Muslim as well or will we admit that he is under attack and that his rights has been violated?
I reiterate, you cannot have it both ways.
