Wakefield, UK street preacher, David McConnell, was arrested and convicted under the nation’s counter-terrorism laws according to reports, and the probation officer that he had been assigned to considered McConnell to be “persistently and illegally taking an extreme point of view.”
In 2021, McConnell was preaching to a crowd of people in Leeds when he was approached by a “trans woman” (a biological male dressed as a woman), who filmed him and asked him if he thought God accepted LGBTQ people. He responded that homosexuality was an “abomination in the sight of God” and that lesbianism was “unnatural.”
Reports state that McConnell referred to the trans woman as “this gentleman” and “a man in women’s clothing” rather than cave to the pseudo-reality of the leftists who demand that the world celebrate complete insanity.
McConnell’s legal representative, Andrea Williams of the Christian Legal Center, said to reporters “What state are we in as a society if the police fail to protect a street preacher who is assaulted, assaulted and whose property is stolen simply because he has no biological reality?”
“This case represents a disturbing trend in our society, with members of the public and professionals being prosecuted and reported as potential terrorists for refusing to celebrate and endorse LGBTQ ideology.”
Speaking on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Elizabeth Wright said that people “have a right to have and express their opinion, but when words “cross the line between a legitimate expression of religious beliefs and become disturbing and threatening, the CPS will prosecute violators if our legal test is met.”
Of course, this begs the question: what is considered “disturbing and threatening”? Clearly, this man was only preaching what the Word of God said and that alone is considered “threatening” to the most powerful prosecution agency in the UK?
If you don’t think that this is coming to the United States soon, Christians, beware. We’re next and we better be prepared.
