Arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin
A street preacher has been arrested in Wimbledon, London, for saying homosexuality is a sin. Tony Miano, a former senior police officer from America, was taken away on Monday 1 July and locked in a cell, spending 7 hours in custody. He was later released without charge, and has since said that “thought police” are now operating in Britain.
He said he was amazed that it was now possible “in the country that produced the Magna Carta” for people to be arrested for what they say.
Mr Miano had been preaching about “sexual immorality” from the Bible passage found in 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12.
A member of the public called the police to the scene, claiming to have heard a “homophobic”.
He said: “The language I used was not homophobic, as I was not promoting fear or hatred of homosexuals.
“I began my message by assuring the people that mine was not a message of hate but of love.
“I was simply explaining a passage in the Bible which speaks of sexual immorality and that people should abstain from it (1 Thessalonians 4:1-12).
