Arrested For Saying Homosexuality is a Sin May 3, 2010

Wokingham, Cumbria, UK - Dale McAlpine was charged with causing “harassment, alarm or distress” after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) overheard him reciting a number of “sins” referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships.  See full story at the Telegraph.  Beware the story that appeared in the NY Daily News is miss leading because the picture posted is from an entirely different event in Philadelphia that is not associated with the McAlpine arrest in the UK.  Compare and contrast the Telegraph story with the NY Daily News Story of the same event for a great example of how media bias is alive and well.  Should someone be arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin?  Does freedom of speech exist in the UK?  Is preaching on a street corner to people passing by effective Christian outreach?
