"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
The charges follow a complaint to police in Taunton, that Overd made a comparison between the perfect life of Jesus and the life of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad. Police have informed the former paratrooper that the Crown Prosecution Service wishes to bring three charges against him under Section 5 of the Public Order Act.
A Taunton police sergeant recently gave an interview to BBC television and a newspaper locally, urging residents to film the evangelist’s preaching as it was alleged that Overd’s preaching was “causing offense.” The officer has also asked local traders to film Overd if they believed he was preaching “offensively.”
Overd insists that when he made a comparison between the perfect life of Jesus and the life led by Muhammad, he did not speak in a hateful way.
“It was a simple comparison and it was factual. Muhammad did marry a 9-year-old girl. I have no hatred of Muslims in me at all and only preach the truth of the gospel. Recently a Muslim man came to my defense when I was preaching and a local shopkeeper started to shout at me.
Britain is dying, while its authorities do nothing to save it, for fear of being called “racist.” When telling the truth becomes an offense for which someone can be arrested and prosecuted, the society in which this happens in its death throes. here
“Britain is dying,….” could easily be changed to America is dying. We suffer from the same disease – Liberalism.
This article should send chills down the spin of anyone with a conscience. Anyone who has the smallest respect for liberty, freedom, the right to speak freely and therefore, live freely.
I suppose it wasn’t that long ago that Great Britain was beheading dissenters and bad Queens, but it’s 2014 — are they really going to reverse direction to appease a few hate mongers, who are “offended” by the truth? Apparently so and I pity the people there, who will likely find themselves “respecting” allah and Muhammad by force, both Satan’s tools.
But I don’t live on that side of ‘the pond’. My real fear lies with the aggressive, forceful tyrannical government we currently have and with all the embedded radical Democrats in high office, including Judges, who change, aka ‘interpret’ Laws to mean what they choose. Barack Hussein and his drone minions of tyranny, have no respect or regard for the Constitution. The current horde of Republicans have little or are too fearful to speak against and hold accountable, this first despicable “black president”. In any case, I can see American soon being forced down the same Liberal Road to Perdition and Tyranny.
We endless hear yammering heads on MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the alphabet soup networks, talk about “hate speech”, which is just words they don’t want to hear coming from Americans they hate. Words and terms they hate and want to banned like: Conservative, Republican, Constitution. . . Ted Cruz . . . and that radical islam is a threat to America. Liberals want only to appease themselves and nail the rest of humanity to the cross of offensiveness. How long before America has a law starting that’s it’s illegal to offend? And it of course, will be enforced only against the chosen — the “enemy” of Liberal Democrats.
It’s coming. And those who don’t speak, and vote against government tyranny now, will be responsible for what’s to come. I can think of no Democrat in any office, who is qualified to be there. Their agenda is one Party rule; they’re against Voter ID so they can continue to steal votes and have the dead cast ballots. Seek out Conservative who will work to repeal ‘obamacare’ and restore validity to our Constitution . . . or wait to be drug into Court for ‘offending a Liberal’.
