Teens get in trouble for all sorts of things – stealing, speeding, or even drugs and alcohol.
But one teenage boy found himself in hot water – simply for handing out Bibles.
And once you hear the reason why the authorities arrested him – you’re bound to be outraged.
A Targeted Attack
The arrested teen, Josh Alexander, previously found himself in hot water when he spoke up at school saying there were only two genders.
Alexander attended St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Canada and learned biological males who “identified” as females were using female restrooms.
He stood up for his female classmates, and made comments on how there are only two genders, and that men shouldn’t be allowed in female restrooms.
However school officials became outraged at Alexander’s comments – and even suspended him accusing him of being a “bully”.
Catholic News Agency reported:
“Bullying behavior that creates an unsafe space for our students is not tolerated … A trans person should not be required to use a separate washroom or change room because others express discomfort or transphobic attitudes, such as, ‘trans women are a threat to other women,’” Mark Searson, director of education at Renfrew County Catholic District School Board, said in a Feb. 13 statement.”
And Then Protests Erupted
Many students rightfully believed Alexander shouldn’t have been suspended, and groups began to organize protests in his defense.
At a “I Stand with Josh Alexander rally”, Alexander himself showed up, and began handing out Bibles.
Apparently, this was enough to land him in hot water with law enforcement in Canada.
When counter-protestors attended and a clash happened between Alexander supporters and the counter-protestors – instead of protecting Alexander’s group – police retaliated and arrested Alexander.
“I’m Not Ashamed Of The Gospel”
Josh Alexander was arrested and taken away in handcuffs, simply for handing out Bibles.
After a video surfaced of Alexander’s arrest – he tweeted “Today I was handcuffed and put in a paddy wagon for offering students bibles on a public sidewalk in Calgary. I was released and told if I returned I would be arrested and charged. I continued handing out bibles. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.”
Arrested for handing out Bibles?!
Suspended for saying there are only two genders!?
This is the new reality we live in.
Good for Josh Alexander for holding strong to his religious convictions and refusing to bow down to the LGBT agenda.
We need more courageous young leaders like Josh Alexander who won’t sit quietly while schools force indoctrination of LGBT propaganda onto students.
Others seemed to agree.
Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada tweeted:
“If you burn a church in this country, the police won’t devote any resources to catching you. If you hand out Bibles on the sidewalk, however — or hold a rally to defend fundamental rights in a time of hysteria — you will be arrested and fined immediately. We’re a sick society.”
As the radical pro-LGBT agenda continues to ramp up, we can expect to see more Christians arrested for speaking God’s truth.
Do you think Josh Alexander should have been arrested?
Why do you think law enforcement decided to haul him away?
