So, This is Sad

Ex-Gay Watch has a good point about the repercussions of this guy being arrested for simply asking someone for a hook-up. Is just talking about sex against the law? They also bring up how the Lawrence v. Texas ruling may help this Pastor avoid jail, even though most religious conservatives (maybe even him) were adamantly opposed to the ruling.

In Oklahoma a Pastor that disagrees with homosexuality, and has spoken out against it, was arrested for propositioning a police officer. To follow that up, after being let go he presumably lied by saying that he had been set up (he may be telling the truth, but somehow I doubt it).

The article doesn't mention if he offered to pay for the services. Is it against the law just to talk about it?

I hope at the very least this gives him some perspective.

so he is getting arrested for propositioning a police officer but not for speaking out against gays? just a thought that came up in my mind.

Anonymous- good thought. Free speech is free speech, right?
