Police getting jumpy

Gordon Larmour, a Christian evangelist, was accused of a hate crime and locked up in a cell after telling the story of Adam and Eve to a 19-year-old who asked him about God’s views on homosexuality.

The street preacher referred to the Book of Genesis and stated that God created Adam and Eve to produce children. He was frogmarched to a police van, accused of threatening or abusive behaviour “aggravated by prejudice relating to sexual orientation” – despite not swearing or using any form of offensive language, spent a night in custody and faced a six-month ordeal before a sheriff cleared him of any blame.
