A man was arrested in the UK last week for street preaching. According to the Christian Institute
, those who made the arrest said that he called "homosexuality a sin."
No matter what your views on homosexuality are, don't you honestly think that we need free speech? This man claimed that he didn't even mention homosexuality in his public sermon. One of the arresting cops was gay and approached him privately. Even if he had gotten up and said that homosexuality was a sin, he has a right to say it. I know this isn't America; this is the UK. The UK bends over backwards to protect the free speech and expression of Muslim and Sikh beliefs. Why not it's own country's declared national religion of Christianity?
I don't care what you are saying -- you have a right to say it. It may sound offensive, arrogant, hateful, and brash, but I will defend your right to say it. Free speech means that much to me. Do you think that Free Speech should include controversial religious views? Should this man have been arrested?
