Police in Michigan Arrest Four Christians for Preaching Jesus Outside Public Arab Festival
Has Shariah Law from the Muslim terrorist nation of Iran come to the United States?
Eight white police officers in Dearborn, Mich. arrested four Christians Friday June 18 and confiscated their video camera for handing out copies of the Gospel of John from the New Testament at the 15th annual Dearborn Arab International Festival.
Islamic Shariah Law used in Iran and developed from the Koran, the “bible” for Muslims, forbids Christians and Jews from talking to Muslims about their faith. It also forbids Muslims from converting to other faiths, usually on pain of death.
The United States government and other national governments and agencies around the world recognize Iran as a major supporter of Islamic terrorism. Terrorism is defined as the deliberate torture, murder and/or dismemberment of civilians for political, religious or other ideological reasons.
The four Christian missionaries were arrested barely three minutes after they began to peacefully distribute copies of the Gospel of John.
According to one of the four missionaries, the policemen told the group that they could only distribute the Gospel five whole blocks from the festival!!!
Happily, the Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor, Mich., one of the top legal teams defending religious and political rights in the U.S., has decided to defend the Christians arrested for allegedly disturbing the peace.
“These Christian missionaries were exercising their constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn, where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus,” Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, said.
“The first thing [these] police officers did before making the arrests was to confiscate the video cameras in order to prevent a recording of what was actually happening,” Thompson added.
This situation in Dearborn is absolutely outrageous and unacceptable. It is also clearly unconstitutional, a frightening violation of the First Amendment.
Islam is an evil, violent ideology that doesn’t deserve to be labeled a religion. And, the Koran is an evil, intellectually confused and historically false diatribe against the Christian faith with a false, confused and irrational description of God and His divine attributes. It also contains a false description of the identity and teachings of Jesus Christ, the Word of God made flesh who died for our sins and rose from the dead to deliver us from evils and sins like the Koran, Islam, Shariah Law, and the Muslim-supporting leaders and police officials running the city of Dearborn.
To contact the Dearborn police and its city government to protest these arrests, please call (313) 943-2285 or write to the mayor at firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more information about or to support the Thomas More Law Center, please visit its website at www.thomasmore.org.
