Recently a street preacher in the UK was called a “racist” and told to “go away” before police arrested him for “breaching the peace.” He was later released.
Also... Ramin Parsa is an ex-Muslim turned Christian pastor who was arrested at the Mall of America in August 2018 for holding a private conversation about his Christian faith with two interested Muslim women. He faces a settlement conference in March and possibly a trial in April.
What's going on here? Is the gospel—and God's Word—becoming "hate speech"? Do you think street preachers should back off so they won't "disturb the peace" and offend anyone? Eventually, will we all be facing persecution like this as followers of Jesus in America? Maybe you've already felt the heat. Weigh in.
