James McConnell's prosecution is one of a growing number of examples in which British authorities who routinely ignore incendiary speech by Muslim extremists are using hate speech laws to silence Christians.
"My church funds medical care for 1,200 Muslim children in Kenya and Ethiopia. I've no hatred in my heart for Muslims... I believe in freedom of speech. I'm going to keep on preaching the gospel. I have nothing against Muslims, I have never hated Muslims, I have never hated anyone. But I am against what Muslims believe. They have the right to say what they believe in and I have a right to say what I believe." James McConnell, Pastor.
"Since the Islamic State took over, it [Mosul] has become the most peaceful city in the world." Raied Al-Wazzan, Executive Director, Belfast Islamic Center. Al-Wazzan is now trying to leverage the controversy over McConnell's remarks to shame local politicians into providing him with free public land to build a mega-mosque.
An evangelical Christian pastor in Northern Ireland is being prosecuted for making "grossly offensive" remarks about Islam.
James McConnell, 78, is facing up to six months in prison for delivering a sermon in which he described Islam as "heathen" and "satanic." The message was streamed live on the Internet, and a Muslim group called the police to complain.

It is true because all that oppose the Islamic State have been executed in the most vile of methods, if female and young and attractive sold into sexual slavery, and those that do not agree and are alive cower in fear. Yes, it is peaceful today but if the hands of fate turn, there will be vengeance. It is peaceful today but not in the future.
I wish we could get back the lives of the brave Americans who died in WWII to preserve the freedom these fools have so carelessly thrown away.
A glimpse of a possible future here.
The UK richly deserves what the bearded savages are going to do to them.
Here’s a little secret. Members of the aristocracy in the UK are quietly marrying their kids to rich Muslims and converting to Islam.
I like that. "We Will Not Comply"
But not in public. Christians would be forbidden to hold prayers in public the way mussies do it.
Muslims deny Christ. It is a blatant example of their evil religion.
