Can they turn your mind into a prison cell?
A woman who was busted for silent prayer in December wants her case to go to trial so she can be rid of the charges once and for all.
Isabel Vaughan-Spruce was arrested near an abortion center in Birmingham, England, and charged with “protesting and engaging in an act that is intimidating to service users” (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2023/feb/3/isabel-vaughan-spruce-arrested-standing-silently-n/). The center wasn’t open at the time, there was no one there to “intimidate,” but never mind–why, it’s an official Censorship Zone!
So Herod’s Men swung into action. Ms. Spruce was hauled off to the cop shop when she admitted she “might have prayed in my head.”
What if she had said “I was trying to remember the combination to my gym locker”? Or the cast of Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid?
Anyway, Herod’s Men “discontinued” the charges against her; but for fear they might be reinstated if the chief constable woke up with a hangover, she wants her day in court to settle the matter one way or another.
Make no mistake about it: We are talking about “the authorities” deciding what you may or may not think.
God be thanked–our Declaration of Independence was a spectacularly good idea!
Will the UK make it to 2100? I don’t like their chances.

I’m not sure our Declaration of Independence — or our Constitution — will make it to 2100.
This is beyond belief.
I sure hope the new House can get rid of the unconstitutional FACE law.
How in the world do they square that with the First Amendment?
First Amendment? Their response is, “We don’t need no stinkin’ First Amendment.”
This is what happens when people abandon the First Commandment.
This is why we need Christians in every place of authority, government, business, and institution. Christians are to be the salt and light, but when we are absent from those places, this is the kind of thing that happens. And until that is the case, we should do as Isabel Vaughan-Spruce is doing, taking a stand, and resisting evil. If enough Christians did so, much of the evil we see all around would cease to happen.
She was arrested and made a criminal, for violating the so-called ‘buffer zone legislation. God-given rights have no buffer zone.
