It was just earlier today that I was noting that Matt Barber was using the arrest of Dale Mcalpine to try and terrify Christians into thinking that they are about to be rounded up and imprisoned here in the United States.
Now, Rick Scarborough of Vision America has sent out an new email alert, also making the same claim, but using it to generate opposition to Elena Kagan:
On October 22, 2009 Hate Crimes protection was extended to sexual orientation by the Senate and sent to the President’s desk to be signed shortly thereafter.
On April 20, 2010, police arrested Dale McAlpine, a 42-year-old Baptist street preacher in Britain for telling a passerby — in earshot of a policewoman — that God views homosexuality as a sin. Under Britain’s Public Order Act 1986, which forbids “using threatening, abusive or insulting words … tending to and causing harassment, alarm or distress,” he will face a criminal trial at a date yet to be determined. McAlpine was fingerprinted, given a DNA swab and retina scan, and was locked in a police cell for seven hours.
The law was in place for 24 years before it was applied to a preacher of the Gospel, but now, in Great Britain, you can go to jail for agreeing with the Holy Bible on homosexuality. And you can rest assured America is on a collision course with the same tragic conclusion.
The appointment of Elena Kagan is the latest step toward the moral abyss for America. As the President’s latest pick for the Supreme Court, this judicial neophyte is a doctrinaire radical leftist with a written disdain for the Constitution of the United States, the very document which she will be sworn to uphold if approved by the Senate, an almost fore drawn conclusion unless enough God fearing Americans raise their voices and demand that she be withdrawn.
The real losers are not the preachers who will go to jail, for they shall find God’s presence there and be rewarded in this and the next life. The real losers are those caught up in a sin that our Government forbids us to tell the truth about, without being threatened with arrest.
Can’t happen here? Just ask Rev. Dale McAlpine of Great Britain.
Till they come for me, I am going to continue to announce the truth and pray for revival in America.
Scarborough urges activist to sign up to blast fax “ALL 100 Senators for just $99” to urge them to oppose Kagan.
Gordon Klingenschmitt is offering the same service for only $38.
