In an attemp to highlight the continuing attack on Christianity IN THIS COUNTRY I submit the following story and video clip.
CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES ARRESTED AT MUSLIM FESTIVAL
(Susan Brinkmann, IHLA.org) In what many are describing as police enforcement of Shari’a law at a Muslim festival last weekend, the Thomas More Law Center has agreed to represent four Christians who were arrested for peacefully proselytizing at the event.
“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,” said Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC).
The incident occurred on the evening of June 18 when Nabeel Qureshi, David Wood, Paul Rezkalla and 18-year-old Negeen Mayel attended the 15th annual Dearborn Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Mich., where an estimated 30,000 of the city’s 98,000 residents are Muslim.
Qureshi and Mayal are former Muslims who are now Christians. Mayal’s parents emigrated from Afghanistan. Wood is a former atheist. All are from a Christian group called Acts 17 Apologetics.
Under Sharia law, it is forbidden to proselytize to Muslims, and no Muslim can leave the faith. Dearborn, Michigan, is home to a substantial Muslim population, and there is strong evidence that local authorities now enforce sharia in preference to the Constitution of the United States.
In a video made after their arrest, Qureshi recounted what happened at the Festival
And you said that it could NEVER happen in The United States. Well, think again!
