Christian Persecution: "Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin"

Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin

Dale McAlpine was charged with causing “harassment, alarm or distress” after a
homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) overheard him reciting a
number of “sins” referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness
and same sex relationships.

The 42-year-old Baptist, who has preached Christianity in Workington, Cumbria
for years, said he did not mention homosexuality while delivering a sermon
from the top of a stepladder, but admitted telling a passing shopper that he
believed it went against the word of God.

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.

“My freedom was taken away on the hearsay of someone who disliked what I said,
and I was charged under a law that doesn't apply.”
