Verdict! Christians convict pastor for 'giving out Bibles'
Wichita pastor told to stay away from Islam center
$300 fine, 1 year probation, ordered to stay 1,000 feet away from scene of his 'offense'
What do you think of conviction of pastor who was handing out Bibles?
- He should have been convicted - he obviously was flagrantly breaking the law
- He should restrict his Bible distributions to the inside of his own church
- He needs to be more careful next time about where he actually stands when handing out Bibles
- It was a great victory affirming America's religious freedom for the Muslims he was clearly offending
- This was obviously a case of someone attempting to intimidate Muslims at their place of worship - I have no problem with the conviction
- The pastor was convicted by a jury of his peers - I have to trust the jury
- If he was causing a traffic hazard, the police would have made the same decision to arrest him no matter what he was handing out
- Would police make the same arrest if an Islamic cleric was handing out Qurans outside a Christian church?
- The police are so intimidated by the Muslims they're willing to trample the First Amendment rights of Christians to avoid conflict
- Clearly, the Christian jurors feared a Muslim backlash if they came back with any other verdict
- That rumbling you hear ... it's the sound of the founders rolling in their graves
- The accusation that a pamphleteer is blocking traffic is frequently used by police to shut down legal activities with which they disagree
- It's a case of diversity and political correctness run amuck
- I'm puzzled why Christians would convict a pastor who was handing out Bibles
- America is headed in the same direction as Europe
- It's a complete miscarriage of justice - I can't believe you can't hand out Bibles in America anymore without risking arrest
