Minister charged with violating noise ordinance at gay pride fest
Thousands of people attended the Pride Charlotte festival, which is the largest fundraiser for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Charlotte. The event closed several blocks of South Tryon Street, but it also brought dozens of protesters like Benham. Many wore red shirts that said "Repent or Perish."

Benham was apparently the only one arrested.

His arrest was the latest in a string of run-ins with the law for the Concord-based preacher. But he says he's a victim of a city policy that chips away at his First Amendment rights by limiting how loud protesters can get.

"It's the way the city controls us," Benham said. "It controls the message that we speak. The city can control the content of a message if they can control the volume." ...

I'm really surprised, that SA didn't latch onto this one as well, apparently it's not only Cessna airplane that fly higher than a kite in Wichita. I would suggest that you read this entire article and decide if this person didnt deserve to be arrested?Kansas Pastor Banned From Islamic Center After Handing Out Bibles [and blocking an entrance ]

I would also ask if a person isn't quite confused what his duty is, when he mixes politics and religion? Jesus, Paul didn't suffer from such confusion!

It seems that some of these fellows don't understand what Rendering To Caesar: A Biblical Perspective On Government means.

If the mixed multitude of religious pluralists got together to confess their sins first, maybe. I don't believe that this man should be silent if he speaks the right thing, in the right place, because he is called of God to do so. If my source of info is accurate then I ask is he?

Flip Benham: Benham was a saloon owner until his conversion in 1976. Since 1980, he has been an ordained minister of the Free Methodist Church. He founded a Free Methodist congregation in Garland, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, which he led until 1992.

He has been active in the pro-life movement since the early 1980s, and founded Operation Rescue's chapter in the Metroplex in 1988. He succeeded Randall Terry as national director of Operation Rescue in 1994, and renamed it Operation Save America in 1999. He has been arrested, by his own count, "less than a hundred, more than fifty" times. He is also a member of the Constitution Party and is a frequent commentator on its

John Y., because some of these who call themselves Christians don't act like Christians but like fools.
NASB wrote:
Colossians 3
6 For it is on account of these things that the wrath of God will come,
7 and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them.
8 But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.
9 Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices,
10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him
11 --a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.
You will notice that in the referenced article,

ALL This Was Done At THE HIGHEST VOLUME THE LOUD-SPEAKERS COULD REACH BY THE PARADE MOTORCADES !

EVERY STATE & CITY "NOISE" LAW ON THE BOOKS WAS BROKEN; TO ACCOMMODATE SEX-MANIACS, SODOMITES, GOMORRAHITES & SAME-SEX ABUSERS !

NOT TO MENTION DECENCY LAWS ON PUBLIC NUDITY, PUBLIC COPULATION, PUBLIC CRIMINAL SEXUAL-ABUSE, PUBLIC AGGRAVATED CRIMINAL SEXUAL-ASSAULT, PUBLIC LEWDNESS, PUBLIC LASCIVIOUSNESS, PUBLIC INDECENT EXPOSURE, PUBLIC TAKING OF INDECENT LIBERTIES WITH A MAN, WOMAN OR CHILD (UNDER 17 YRS), ETC. !

I looked up what 75 decibels sounds like and apparently it is about as loud as a toilet flushing or an alarm clock going off. How does one preach (proclaim loudly) at such a level?

This sodomite pride mess is coming to Fort Worth on October 1st and our mayorette is going to be a grand marshall in it. Bold soldiers of the Lord are encouraged to stand up for Jesus on this day.

"His arrest was the latest in a string of run-ins with the law for the Concord-based preacher."

I found that confusing. Is his Concord base in Charlotte, North Carolina? It appears Concord is 25 miles from Charlotte. Thinking of course as a Presbyterian I'd then ask; Why is he preaching outside of his own city and not to his own people? I also conclude based on my understnading of separation that he is usurping the responsibility of the magistrate to address this. He is clearly not directing this to those of his own city, and it is directed at those outside the visible church. It is the magistrate's job to deal with this violation of the moral law in those outside the church. The impression is given in this article is rather, that they defend it.
Is that true? Is it according Constitutional Law in the USA that sodomy may be acceptable, if they so desire it to be? If so, then they defend it and deny Jesus Christ. Any of these magistrates involved that claim Christ as Lord and Savior, might want to consider this. Rev. 14:9-12

What is going on in the United States Of America where someone can be arrested simply for preaching the Gospel? It is time that someone took the cities and states to court to stop them from going against the First Amendment guarantee of Freedom Of Religion.
