Do you have sympathy for the preacher arrested?
I’ll openly admit… I think street preaching outside abortion clinics doesn’t accomplish much (other than making Christians look angry and defiant in our culture).
Should it be allowed?
I guess… it’s a free country.
But the tone of press releases like this one (below) don’t seem to help the situation. They strive only to rally the base. (But the base is shrinking).
I prefer to offer help to our local community pregnancy center. They are doing great work in a positive way to those who most need it.
Here’s the press release. I’d love your thoughts:
JACKSON, Miss., April 17, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — A Pastor preaching on the public sidewalk at the corner in front of All Women’s Health has just been arrested by Jackson Police while he was preaching. The preacher, Chet Gallagher from Las Vegas, was called over by police in the middle of his preaching. He asked that they come to him unless he was under arrest and at that time they said he was under arrest. When asked what the charges were the police refused to answer. Other pastors are now trying to discover why he was arrested and cannot even locate where police have taken him.
