Police ban Bible video in Christian cafe

Lancashire Police told a Christian café owner that he could not display Bible verses because they were in breach of the Public Order Act.

Mr Jamie Murray was playing a video of the CEV Bible text on 19 September at the Salt and Light Coffee House in Blackpool when police officers told him to stop displaying ‘offensive or insulting words’.

The officers told Mr Murray they were following up a complaint about ‘homophobic’ material, but did not tell him which verses had caused offence.

Mr Murray said the officers were ‘quite aggressive. It felt like an interrogation.’ So the café owner agreed to stop the video while he sought legal advice.

Later, the police admitted their officer had got it wrong, and apologised for any distress caused.
