From the Telegraph:
A police community support officer ordered two Christian preachers to stop handing out gospel leaflets in a predominantly Muslim area of Birmingham.
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....
"[The officer] said we were in a Muslim area and were not allowed to spread our Christian message. He said we were committing a hate crime by telling the youths to leave Islam and said that he was going to take us to the police station."...
West Midlands Police, who refused to apologise, said the incident had been "fully investigated" and the officer would be given training in understanding hate crime and communication.
Apparently this wasn't a "hate crime" and it was an abuse of the officer's authority. But consider the culture today that influences a policy officer to interpret evangelism as a hate crime. Religous pluralism doesn't promote tolerance, but criticizes those who believe - and act on the belief - that religions have objective truth value. Not only are those believers wrong, they are guilty of hate crimes.
That's not only truly oppressive, but self-refuting.
