Cafe owner in UK faces arrest for displaying Bible Verses in the Cafe

An online credible source reported that Police have threatened a Christian cafe owner with arrest –- for displaying passages from the Bible on a TV screen....
The Salt and Light cafein Blackpool has for years repeatedly played the entire 26-hour-long Watchword Bible, a 15-DVD set produced inAmerica in which a narrator reads the whole of the New Testament, on a small flatscreen TV on the back wall....
The sound is turned down but the words flash on to the screen against a series of images....
Mr Murray said the twouniformed officers from Lancashire Constabulary arrived atlunchtime on Monday, the cafe’s busiest timeof day. WPC June Dorrian, the communitybeat manager, told himthere had been a complaint and he was breaching the Public Order Act 1986....
[Mr Murray said.] ‘I said, “Are you really telling me that I am facing arrest for playing the Bible?” and the WPC fixed me witha stare and said, “If you broadcast materialthat causes offence under the Public Order Act then we will have to take matters further. You cannot break the law.” ’ ...
Murray said that he suspected the offending passage was from Romans 1:26–28, “God let them follow their own evil desires. Women no longer wanted to have sex in a natural way, and they did things with each other that were not natural. Men behaved in the same way. They stopped wanting to have sex with women and had strong desires for sex with other men. They did shameful things with each other, and what has happened to them is punishment for their foolish deeds.”
