Preachers handing out leaflets in Birmingham UK were told the faced arrest for HATE CRIMES! if they carried on because the area has a heavy muslim population!

The evangelists say they were threatened with arrest for committing a "hate crime" and were told they risked being beaten up if they returned. The incident will fuel fears that "no-go areas" for Christians are emerging in British towns and cities, as the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester, claimed in The Sunday Telegraph this year.

What the hell ? hate crime for handing out a leaflet ? They faced threats of violence and the Police threaten them with arrest ? in the UK ?

Last time i checked no one could be arrested for handing out a leaflet. If you don't like it throw it away or don't accept it !

I wonder if i can get the muslim preachers in Oxford arrested for hate crimes because they preach and have a stand about islam and hand out leaflets there ?

A sad world we live in, and a blatant abuse from the police. Seems like every one has rights apart from Christians who can be threatened at will and with impunity.

Reading the rest of the story seems to suggest it's more about a cop who can't separate a country's government from it's people, and who uses their religion as a cop-out(pun intended) to threaten them.

Sounds more like a politically motivated incident than religious to me.

Though it would be nice to see what the fliers said(at least in America, Christian evangelists CAN be pretty un-Christlike[to say the least] in trying to get others to convert, especially dealing with Muslims).
