Kansas: Preach Gospel to Muslims – Get Arrested

Mark Holick arrested
Attempt to address Muslims in Kansas and you’ll be hauled off in handcuffs to the local police department.
 
That’s what happened to Pastor Mark Holick of Spirit One Christian Center when he visited the Wichita Islamic Society to speak about the gospel and to distribute religious tracts.
 
Pastor Holick and fourteen other Christians, including two additional senior ministers, did not step foot inside the mosque - - but merely attempted to engage Muslims in dialogue on a public sidewalk as they left the building.
 
When the police arrived on the scene, Mr. Holick was handcuffed and forced into a squad car.
When asked what crime he had committed, the police, according to the pastor, said “loitering” and “failure to disperse.”
 
Mr. Holick told OneNewsNow that it was “very disconcerting to see the gospel squelched — especially on a public sidewalk in a country with a constitutional guarantee of free speech.”
 
The police allege that the pastor and his followers were blocking a driveway.
 
Mr. Holick denies this charge by saying: “Of course we never did do that. There would be no reason for us to block vehicles — and they probably have no idea how much I like all of my organs and bones perfectly in the position they’re in right now.”
 
Previously, Mr. Holick captured headlines by positing this message on the marquee of the Spirit One Christian Center: “America, we have a Muslim president. This is a sin against the Lord.”
 
Last year, the fiery pastor was taken into custody by the Wichita police for communicating his religious views to gays and lesbians at a homosexual festival that was held in a public park.
