    It's not. The english language does not take root words and translate the definitions literally. You're just wrong. So wrong. But it seems you like it that way.

    Police officers are alleging that he made the remark in a voice loud enough to be overheard by others and have charged him with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the Public Order Act.

    Wow. Welcome to politically correct fascism, can I take your order?
    No personal sympathy for the dude here. Don't think he should've been arrested for being a bigot, but I might have been arrested for "disturbing the peace" if I went out in public yelling at people (whether it had to do with religion or not).

    And of course the fundies will claim that some random asshole getting (possibly) unfairly charged with a crime = "The New World Order".

    [quote=Andalublue;1058731821]You're the one with the theories. I'm refusing to jump to conclusions based on one side of the story. You are.[/quopte]

    LOL I at least have an article as evidence. You have nothing., zip, zero.

    It alleges that's what the police allege. It also said the police gave no statement, so we only hear what the police allege from the mouth of the perp and his counsel. Please quote what the police said, if you can.
    It never once says the police's allegations came from the victim. You are fabricating evidence.

    Nope, read it and understood it better than you, clearly.
    Obviously not if you can't even read the statement from police.

    Your sophistry is legendary. You accept whatever someone tells you provided it supports your own partisan standpoint. I'm not jumping to conclusions and I'm not believing everything the press tells me simply because it fits my weltanschauung.
    No I accept what evidence I have until it is proven to be contrary.

    Unlike you who doesn't accept it based on nothing.

    Never once said he was yelling. Read the article.

    The only fundie was the homosexual zealot who turned him in for preaching something he didn't agree with.

    Again, read the article.

    As noted, you may continue to exhibit your delusions at your leisure - I, for one, get a kick out of goading you into this sort of self-abusing behavior.

    It doesn't seem that this was the case, however.

    Where did this happen?

    In the OP. "Wow. Welcome to politically correct fascism, can I take your order?"

    Sounds a lot like apocalyptic scare-mongering to me.

    Well, let me ask this:

    In that regard, what would you think if the speech that got the guy arrested was a sentiment you agreed with?
