Pastor arrested at mall for witnessing

February 11, 2010

This is just absurd.

Be careful of what you say at the mall?

A large chain of shopping malls is making headlines for its assault on free speech. The malls will have you arrested if you engage in conversations with others about religion or politics on their property. The malls also ban clothes with political or religious messages.

Pastor Matthew Snatchko learned this the hard way. After engaging in peaceful conversations about Christ with other patrons in the mall, security was called. Even though the shoppers had agreed to talk with Snatcko, he was arrested.

While the criminal charges have been dropped, this raises an important issue. If you can talk to someone in the mall about the movies or wear clothes with sports insignias, why can’t you wear political symbols or share your faith?

    Wow! We have “church” in the mall. The only thing that they have said that we cannot do is, play the guitar. Other than that we are free to share. Hope this gets better.
    Bless you!
