Pastor on Trial for Anti-Islam Rhetoric.

Pastor James McConnell: Trial begins over Islam broadcast.


The trial of an evangelical preacher accused of making "grossly offensive" remarks about Islam has begun.
Pastor James McConnell denies two charges relating to a sermon he gave in a Belfast church last year.
Belfast Magistrates' Court heard that Pastor McConnell called Islam "satanic" and "heathen".
His remarks were made at the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in north Belfast in May 2014 and were streamed online.
Pastor McConnell, 78, of Shore Road in Newtownabbey, County Antrim, is charged with improper use of a public electronic communications network and causing a grossly offensive message to be sent by means of a public electronic communications network.
The prosecution against Pastor McConnell centres on his remarks about not trusting Muslims.
In a sermon criticising Islam in May last year, the pastor said: "I don't trust them [Muslims]."
A prosecution barrister told the court this meant the pastor was saying he did not trust a single Muslim.
From the back of the court, Pastor McConnell shouted "no".
The barrister acknowledged the shout, but said the sermon had been grossly offensive, and was outside any legal protection given to preachers from the pulpit.
The court was also read transcripts of an interview the pastor took part in with BBC presenter Stephen Nolan.
The barrister said the pastor was "unrepentant" in the interview about what he said about Islam.
However, he made it clear that the prosecution was based on what was said in church, not in the BBC interview.
More than 100 supporters of the preacher sat in the public gallery in court 12.
The trial is expected to last three days.

So it's now illegal to criticize religion? What is this fuckries? It's not like he was advocating violence or hate he was just giving a point of view which I share on religion as a whole.
Since when is it illegal to register ones disdain for Islam, Christianity, Judaism when it's being done in a non-threatening way. Talk about fucking fascism.

Free speech should warrant speaking your thoughts as long as it does not promote violence.

Wow. Fascism is in full-swing. The politically-correct-crackdown on freedom. The guy says, "I don't trust Muslims." He's not allowed to have his own opinion?!? Or just not allowed to share it?!?

So he called Islam "satanic" and "heathen." So according to his religion, they probably are. Who gives a fuck? I certainly don't like or trust Muslims, and before all you whiney-bitches chime-in about racism, I'll bet you a lot of money I know more about Islam than you do. (Ask others about how seriously I take my bets.)

I find that people that call themselves "multi-cultural" don't actually have a clue about "other cultures." They just piss and moan about the "culture" of their countrymen who don't agree with their politics. And persecutions like this story are what happens as a result. Nazism/Fascism: same story, different names, different year, same mob mentality to oppress the "unpopular people." Thank you political Left.

Wow. You'd think *IRELAND* of all places would have by now figured out that people shouldn't pay such close attention to what religious morons have to say about each other.

Re: Pastor on Trial for Anti-Islam Rhetoric.

Political Correctness isn't about freedom or tolerance, it's about oppression and silencing political dissent to the progressive agenda. It has transitioned from a tool to leverage equality to a weapon to assassinate the character of anyone who doesn't go along with the new agenda.

Which is exactly why Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell need their fucking heads cut off.

Re: Pastor on Trial for Anti-Islam Rhetoric.

It seems to me its only illegal to criticize those fucking bloodthirsty Muslims.

You can call a Jew, a Christian, a Hindu, a Buddhist, or a PAGAN....any derogatory name in the book, but THE FUCKING WORLD HAS GONE BATSHIT CRAZY OVER MUSLIMS....



THE TRUTH BE TOLD....THE WORLD IS AFRAID OF WHAT MUSLIMS ARE GOING TO DO TO US ALL......AFRAID....and RIGHTFULLY SO....???????
