Stephen GreenStephen Green, director of the UK organization, Christian Voice, was arrested on September 2 as he was distributing a pamphlet to those attending a homosexual Mardi Gras event in the Welsh capital of Cardiff. He was approached by an inspector from the "Minorities Support Unit" of the police after some of the participants took offense at the content of the leaflet (click here to view a copy of the leaflet). When he went outside the park and continued distributing the offending material, he was arrested and charged with "threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress thereby, contrary to section 5(1) and (6) of the Public Order Act 1986." A spokesman for the police told London's Daily Mail that Green had not been violent or aggressive, but that the arrest was solely because "the leaflet contained Biblical quotes about homosexuality."

Pray that the Word of God will take root in the hearts of those who received the pamphlet, and that they will come to know Christ (Luke 8:4-8). Pray that Stephen will respond to his accusers with love and compassion (Matthew 5:43-48). Pray that all charges will be dropped against him.
