An online credible source reported that Police have threatened a Christian cafe owner with arrest –- for displaying passages from the Bible on a TV screen....

The Salt and Light cafe in Blackpool has for years repeatedly played the entire 26-hour-long Watchword Bible, a 15-DVD set produced in America in which a narrator reads the whole of the New Testament, on a small flatscreen TV on the back wall....

The sound is turned down but the words flash on to the screen against a series of images....

Mr Murray said the two uniformed officers from Lancashire Constabulary arrived at lunchtime on Monday, the cafe’s busiest time of day. WPC June Dorrian, the community beat manager, told him there had been a complaint and he was breaching the Public Order Act 1986....

[Mr Murray said.] ‘I said, “Are you really telling me that I am facing arrest for playing the Bible?” and the WPC fixed me with a stare and said, “If you broadcast material that causes offence under the Public Order Act then we will have to take matters further. You cannot break the law.” ’ ...

Murray said that he suspected the offending passage was from Romans 1:26–28, “God let them follow their own evil desires. Women no longer wanted to have sex in a natural way, and they did things with each other that were not natural. Men behaved in the same way. They stopped wanting to have sex with women and had strong desires for sex with other men. They did shameful things with each other, and what has happened to them is punishment for their foolish deeds.”

If the display is offensive to some people, the cafe owner has to obey the law.

Battle between
light and darkness
Believers and non-believers
God and Satan
Good and evil

 But light surely wins darkness!
