The evangelists should have performed a "citizen's arrest" on the officers for a hate crime. The sad thing is that a lot of people really don't understand the self contradiction involved in things like this.

England is falling to Islam right before our very eyes. It's unbelievable.

I'm wondering if there is something that is missing from this article. The Rev cites the officer as saying, "they risked being beaten up if they returned." Certainly the officer wouldn't be the one doing the "beating up." While he may have over stepped his bounds in saying what he said, perhaps the officer was in fact warning the Christians about action the community they were in might take if they were to continue handing out leaflets.

I don't know anything about this area of England, but perhaps the officer was trying to keep some law and order in an area where there had been trouble recently. I see that the Rev reports later that it was called a hate crime for trying to convert young Muslims, but there is obviously more to the conversation which occured then this small exchange. Conversations like this often have nuances that are not conveyed in the newspaper.

Melinda's point is well taken, but something seems odd about the story.

England has become a huge ghetto - almost a third world country. The Islamic influence has been a major factor. You can be sure that wherever Islam goes the standard of living recedes.

This incident shows how secure proponents of Islam are in their beliefs, doesn't it?
Jehovah Witnesses have knocked on my door many times through the years. I don't for a moment believe what JWs teach -- but I would never threaten them or seek to deprive them of their freedom. As a matter of fact, being confronted with a rival worldview gives me the opportunity to tell others about Christ.
Based strictly on what we are seeing in the world, and not on my speculation, I don't think Muslim proponents can handle the truth.

I'm actually not too concerned. The Police authorities did say that they are taking corrective action. What we have here is a case of an individual being unable to make an important distinction, not the police force as an organization.
