Man Arrested for Quoting Bible Verse During Pride Event

Damon Atkins has been arrested for quoting a Bible verse during Pennsylvania’s “Pride March and Rally.”

In a video of the event, Atkins can be heard saying, “This is public property,” to which a police officer responds, “Let them have their event.”

Prior to being arrested, Atkins was in the middle of quoting a section of 1 Corinthians 14:33, which says, “God is not the author of confusion,” but was unable to finish the quote upon being approached by the officer.

Reporting from The Lancaster Patriot:

According to an affidavit of probable cause, McClure claims that “[Atkins] was carrying a sign with a slogan written on it that showed his opposition to the event.”

The video footage shows Atkins holding a sign that read “JESUS SAID GO AND SIN NO MORE.”
