Free Speech Islam Offended

IRISH PASTOR CLEARED OF PROVOKING MUSLIMS IN ANTI-ISLAM SERMON……..

Islam 101 is a hell on earth ideology as well.

Besides, by what right does a person have not to be ‘provoked” or ”offended? If that’s the case, the entire ruling elite political class and a host of Leftist commentators should be brought to book for calling defenders of classical liberalism, ”fascists, racists and bigots”.

A retired pastor has been found not guilty of making “grossly offensive remarks” about Islam during a sermon in Northern Ireland.

Pastor McConnell outside the court last month

He was charged under the Communications Act (2003) because the sermon, which he preached in May 2014, was streamed online.

In a landmark case, he denied charges of making improper use of a public electronics communications network and of causing a grossly offensive message to be sent by means of a public electronic communications network.

During a three-day trial last month, Pastor McConnell told Belfast Magistrates Court he still believed what he had preached and did not go into church to “provoke anyone”.

He said: “I was attacking the theology of Islam. I was not attacking any individual Muslim.”
