A Christian preacher from Los Angles, Tony Miano, was arrested in England for saying homosexuality is a sin. He was taken to the police station, interrogated about what he said and about his beliefs, and “released with no further action” some hours later.

The message is clear: if you present the elements of Christ’s message disfavored today by the UK government, you will be harrassed. What parts of the Gospel will they approve of in ten years, I wonder?

Roger Pearse suggests “that Christian readers remember to pray for both the informer, and the policemen involved, as well as the preacher and the blog that reported it.”
