Faux Freedom

In London recently a pastor by the name of John Sherwood was arrested over “homophobic” comments.

“I wasn’t making any homophobic comments, I was just defining marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. I was only saying what the Bible says – I wasn’t wanting to hurt anyone or cause offence,” Sherwood said.

“When the police approached me, I explained that I was exercising my religious liberty and my conscience. I was forcibly pulled down from the steps and suffered some injury to my wrist and to my elbow. I do believe I was treated shamefully. It should never have happened,” he further said.

Simpson spent the night in jail and then was released. Section 5 of the Public Order Act was the reason behind the arrest.
