Anyone can be a Christian pastor

Street Preacher Arrested for Offending Islam Released from Prison

A street preacher in the UK, who was arrested for criticizing Islam, has been released from jail. 

Ian Sleeper was arrested for holding up a sign in Central London that said “#Love Muslims Hate Islam Time For The Truth.” He was held for 13 hours for allegedly causing disorder. 

However, after being unable to charge Sleeper with an actual crime, prosecutors let the case go. 

Sleeper said his decision to hold the controversial sign came when he realized the Muslim employees at his restaurant knew very little about their religion. 

“After reading the Qur’an and observing the behavior of my Muslim staff, it became clear that they were not practicing much of their religion’s teachings,” he told Christian Concern. “I found this curious, and, after chatting to them about their belief, I realized this was due to their ignorance of the Quranic verses. They simply do not know what their religion teaches.”

“Their ignorance is almost on a par with the wider public’s, where the horrors and gross gender inequalities of Islam are not apparent to most people,” he added. 

That’s when he decided to publicly share his message about Islam even if it cost him his freedom.

While many people view Sleepe’s actions as hate-filled, he says that’s not the case. 

“As Christians we must hate sin, spread the gospel and love God. Through my actions I aim to achieve all three,” he says. 

In fact, he believes there is a strong distinction to be made between Muslims and the ideology of Islam. 

“I differentiate between Muslims the people and Islam the ideology”, he said. “I love my Muslim neighbor as the Bible commands, and I am friends with all my Muslim staff. But I hate the religion’s ideology. It is not Muslims we should be attacking, it’s Islam. Islam makes Muslims victims with a tight grip that holds them captive to an evil ideology.”

While his actions may have gotten him in trouble with police, Sleeper says he’s not quieting down any time soon. 

“Truth cannot be taken for granted in our modern world, and so I will be back out on the street soon,” he said. “Please pray for me and my brothers and sisters in Christ, as we all seek to expose deception and turn people to Christ.”

  1. It’s funny how Christians can attack EVERY OTHER RELIGION besides Christianity! Radical Islam is terrible indeed just as radical Christianity is. The KKK is an example of radical Christianity that sees blacks as “less than infidels” just as the radical Muslims do but Christians don’t want to talk about that! Most [if not all] of those Klansman will tell you they are Christian and are carrying out the will of God .There’s NO “right” religion because neither God or His son Yeshua formed them, they are ALL man-made, including Christianity. The Sharia law AT LEAST is nothing less than the enforcement of keeping moral laws but in this country that claims to be “founded on Christianity [whatever that means]” there is NO ENFORCEMENT of keeping moral laws, much less what’s written. Christians support EVERYTHING THAT’S EVIL… abortion, same-sex marriage, organ harvesting, church pimping, etc. No, Im not a Muslim- I’m not affiliated with ANY religion, I AM FREE to worship God in truth and in spirit with no religion involved that would take me off of the path of righteousness and keep me from speaking against all evil. But to all of you involved in these religious wars, remember this- “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand [Mathew 12:25]…And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand [Mathew 12:24} .. Those “houses” and “kingdoms” are in reference to different religions. ALL RELIGIONS are divided which is why there are various denominations or sects of EVERY RELIGION in existence, and according to Christ NONE OF THEM WILL STAND! Not even Christianity. Since this “street preacher” says he wants to “expose deception and turn people to Christ” he can began with looking into the origin of Christianity and all of the filth and evil associated with it.
