    She committed a thought crime.

    Let's also recognize for a minute that police are increasingly not our friends and are more and more often being drones of the state enforcing its will upon all who dare think differently.

    This is especially true in the UK where most police appear to be bootlickers, but let's not forget in the U.S where you got arrested for taking your kids to a playground during COVID, or surfboarding on a beach, or having a Psalm Sing with your Church in public.

    And some professing Christians deny liberty as a right, is a self evident right.

    Yet another good reason they forced the Bill of Rights to be added to the Constitution.

    Yes, the concern is that it eventually makes its way over here. Canadians, of course, are already in trouble.

    Read the tweet underneath the original.
    "The woman in the video, Isabel Vaughan Spruce, was not arrested for silently praying. She was arrested for breaking a temporary Public Space Protection Order on four separate occasions which was used to ban protests outside of an abortion clinic due to safety concerns." https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/isabel-vaughan-spruce-45-charged-25794626.amp

    How about this, she was arrested for silently praying outside a child murder factory.

    The gall of the government to try to temporarily change God's immutable laws. :Laugh:Laugh:Laugh

    Yes, I read several comments regarding this. There were zero safety concerns. Do they say how she broke it?

    She was arrested for silently praying in a "protection zone." The only reason they could move to arrest her was because she admitted she was possibly praying silently.

    Yes, that's right. If you watch the clip and listen closely, they point blank asked her if she had been praying. If this was the totality of it, then they did not catch her praying, no one witnessed her praying.

    Mentioning possibly praying silently and not wanting to go downtown voluntarily meant they were going to arrest her. Which they did, after a search of her person, of course.

    We should call that zone what it really is, a satan zone where the UK government attempts to enforce satan's will on the the UK's Christians.

    Got it. She was arrested for following God's law over man's law.

    Four times I may add, my goodness, that's some serious faith.

    No, she was arrested for “possibly praying I my head”, across the street from a baby murder factory.

    What were the police protecting the baby murderers from? Silent prayer?

    I can’t believe you are excusing this outrageous attack on Christianity.

    peace to you

    She could have prayed anywhere else. She was well known for being at that location. The government, ordained by God, acted according to the law.
    Now, she chose to be a non-violent resister and I applaud her choice, but the government was entirely within the law to remove her.

    Jesus said that in the end times there would be a great apostasy (falling away) where brother would betray brother, sister betray sister and so on.

    I believe Jesus is referring to a time when professing Christians would betray one another to avoid persecution.

    My question to you… if you lived in the UK and saw this woman, known to be vigilant to pray for unborn children, standing across the street from the clinic, would you call the police and turn her in?

    Please explain why or why not?

    peace to you

    That looks for all the world like a viewpoint which justifies any and all law, no matter how antichrist, as legitimate before God.

    It would make sense from an atheistic perspective, since to an atheist there is no God. But for a Christian in a free society, it does not make sense.
