For Pastor Sherwood, there were no troops from a junta, no sweaty town square, no dusty clothes, nothing like that. In London, of all places, the street preacher was arrested in connection with the “crime” of preaching from Genesis 1.

According to Premier Christian News, Sherwood was arrested last month after police received complaints about the content of his preaching.

“At 13:35hrs on Friday, 23 April, officers on patrol were flagged down by a member of the public who made them aware of a man allegedly making homophobic comments close to Uxbridge Underground Station,” a spokesman with the London Metropolitan Police said in a statement to the news outlet.

“A number of other people also approached the officers with concerns about the man’s language.

“Officers spoke with the 71-year-old man and he was subsequently arrested on suspicion of an offence under Section 5 of the Public Order Act.”

A roughly one-minute video of the arrest, shared on social media, depicts a rather forceful procedure, particularly involving a 71-year-old pastor.
