CHRISTIANS HAULED OFF TO JAIL FOR PREACHING JESUS IN MICHIGAN
By Moody Adams In one swoop the police in Dearborn, Michigan took away the Constitutional freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Four Christian missionaries were taken into custody.
The four belong to a group called Acts 17 Apologetics, were peacefully telling the Muslims about Jesus Christ at the open public gathering of an estimated 300,000 Muslims.
One of the group said people "would come up to us, accusing us, threatening us, saying we were racists, saying they were going to hurt us and yelling curses and insults at us."
"Officers arrested four Christian missionaries and illegally confiscated their video cameras which were recording the events surrounding their arrests," said a statement today from the Thomas More Law Center of Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is representing the Christians.
Pastor George Saeig, was prohibited from distributing religious material at last year's festival. His court case is pending, but a federal appeals court ruled prior to the 2010 event that handing out Christian literature in the proximity of the festival was allowed.
