    I believe silly "christian" preachers do stupid things just to get themselves arrested so they can scream about being arrested for preaching. The head lines will read "Christians arrested for praying" but when you read the story, you find they were sitting in the middle of the street and they were really arrested for blocking traffic and disorderly conduct. How do you deal with fanatics like that?

    So obviously you don't believe in oral sex either, correct?

    Yeah except that doesn't appear to be at all what happened in this case if you read the article.

    He was arrested and charged with using threatening words and behaviour, i.e. NOT hate speech and NOT for saying homosexuality is a sin, even if that was part of the content of his outburst. Harranguing, street-preachers are a frequent feature of British street life, you can hear them anywhere and they say what they like, usually stuff that comes from the nuttier and more extreme end of the Christian canon. If they stick to opinion they have no problem. When they become abusive, threatening or seditious, they cross the line and action may be taken against them.

    I'm sure that you and many of your friends on DP might find the limits of free speech in Britain and other western countries not as wide as those protected by the US constitution and legislation. So what? These are different countries we are discussing here, different constitutions , different cultures. Perhaps in Britain people are more closely called to account for what they say; British politicians are certainly held more accountable for the claims they make than American politicians are. Libel laws are also much stricter. But, y'know, diff'rent strokes...

    Read the article by all means, but also bear in mind that it comes from a newspaper that opposes gay rights and sexual equality and has an agenda to make political capital out of anomalies in the system.
