A Christian pastor in the United Kingdom was told by the local police that if he offends the LGBT community with a social media comment he could be breaking the law, even though a pro-LGBT mob threatened to burn down his church.
Christian Concern, a UK persecution watchdog, reports Pastor Josh Williamson of Newquay Baptist Church, was warned by police to keep his views in a “safe environment” after being targeted by a wave of anti-Christian abuse, including threats of violence and calls for his church to be burnt down.
Last month, Williamson, 34, replied to a post on a local news outlet’s Facebook page that reported this year’s Cornwall pride event would be canceled. Williamson simply wrote, “Wonderful news!” under the post.
When he was questioned about his comment by another user, he replied, “because I don’t think sin should be celebrated.”
