Support pastor and his right to preach Gospel

Published 08/09/2015

I was at Laganside Court on September 3 in relation to Pastor James McConnell being prosecuted over his comments on Islam streamed on the internet.

The case against Pastor McConnell is based on the fact that his comments could be considered inflammatory/verging on hatred against Muslims.

Yet all Pastor McConnell has done is preach the Gospel about sin and state the Bible's position of there being only one Saviour - Jesus Christ, God's son for all of humanity, Muslims included.

If we find preaching the Gospel offensive, then this means, as Christians, we have lost our human rights to publicly proclaim the truths of the Bible.

By supporting the pastor in force on October 1, the people will send a clear message of the resolute commitment to oppose any legislation the Government may seek to impose on the Christian people of Northern Ireland.
