    Seattle Preacher Arrested During Pride Event Says ‘Crime’ Was Reading Bible In Park

    A Seattle street preacher says he was arrested for simply reading his Bible at a public park near a Seattle Gay Pride event.

    Matthew Meinecke was surrounded by Seattle police officers and taken to the police station, where he was fingerprinted before being released.

    “So at this point we can no longer stand by,” a police officer told Meinecke as he arrested him. “The risk that you pose for public safety by remaining here can be mitigated if you leave, it’s your last chance.”

    “I don’t want to leave because I’m not in danger,” Meinecke responded.

    Did the police even bother to specify a crime? Why exactly was he arrested? Just for exercising his First Amendment rights?

      So, he's reading the Bible, and a bunch of "gay pride" persons assault him with F-word laden verbal attacks.

      It really shows what a bunch of foul-mouthed hate-filled vile people they are --- H_A should be so very proud!
      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        The men parading naked in front of children should have been arrested for indecent exposure. Instead, it's the pastor peacefully reading his Bible.

          Why are we shocked and surprised?

          We should be expecting this, more and more.

              I am neither shocked nor surprised. I'm just sad to see it come to this. Our Founding Fathers would be appalled if they could see what has happened to the United States.

                Absolutely, but GLBTQX++ running around naked and simulating sex acts are a protected class - a white man reading his Bible is not. We are protecting sin and debauchery and prosecuting righteousness.

                  "The risk that you pose for public safety by remaining here can be mitigated if you leave, it’s your last chance."

                  The last I heard, a speaker has the right to say controversial things but as long as he isn't instigating anything the duty of the police is to maintain order not arrest the speaker.

                  I'm always still in trouble again

                    I was actually a bit surprised by how morally vile and aggressive the left was here - almost demonic...

                          I suspect if it had been a black man reading a bible, he would have gotten the same reaction. After all, black conservatives are attacked by the left just the same.

                              Well, lemme splain to you where you're wrong about that. You see... um.... black conservatives... uh.... Uncle Toms to the left.....

                              OK, you're right.
