Pastor Now Stands Trial for Calling Islam ‘Satanic’

Pastor James McConnell stands trial this week for calling Islam “heathen” and “Satanic” in a sermon last year.

“As I have said many times, I refuse to be gagged and if necessary will go to prison; but be assured, when I come out, I will start again and preach the truth of the gospel!” McConnell wrote before the trial.

McConnell says he delivered the sermon in May 2014 in defense of persecuted convert Miriam Ibrahim.

“This was my main reason for preaching that sermon,” McConnell wrote. “Surely a so-called ‘religious’ organization (who brutally would do this to a young woman; mutilating thousands of women; and imprisoning, torturing, crucifying and beheading thousands of men) ought to be branded ‘satanic’!”
