PASTOR IN UK FACES THREAT AFTER PREACHING AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY.


UK Pastor Josh Williamson in charge of  Newquay Baptist Church is facing savage threats from members of the LGBTQ+ community for holding to the fact, that homosexuality [GAY] is a sin.
According to Christian Concern, a UK based watchdog organization, Williamson simply wrote, ”wonderful news!” in response to a news article that stated that the Cornwall Pride Parade was canceled.
     The festivities were originally scheduled to take place on August 29.
When an online user asked Williamson why he celebrated the cancellation, the pastor replied, 

                            "

    “because I don’t think sin should be celebrated.”        

                    "

Williamson continue to use the word of God to defend his stance on homosexuality. He cited the books of John, James, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.
                   
The pastor then shared the article on his personal Facebook page, noting that his church had previously prayed for the cancellation of the parade.
  “We also prayed that the Lord would save the organisers. One prayer answered, now we wait for the second prayer to be answered,”
But the parade organizers caught wind of Williamson’s page, took a screenshot of his post, tagged his church and posted it together with anti-LGBTQ+ comments by online users.
The names of the users were blocked out by Cornell Pride, in order to make it seem like Pastor Williamson was the one behind the negative comments.
Williamson’s wife received online threats as her husband’s head was superimposed upon an image of homosexual pornography, which was also shared online.
            The pastor was then reported by Cornwall Pride’s followers to police for hate speech as well as committing a hate crime.
Williamson received a slew of threats. Members and supporters of the LGBTQ+ community participated in a protest outside of his church during Sunday’s service.
They threatened to have the church’s charity status revoked, and threatened to have the pastor deported to his homeland of Australia.
Amid the threats, Williamson met with two members of Cornwall Pride where he continued to defend his stance on homosexuality.
With the members’ permission, he shared a tract that explains why homosexuality is a sin, according to Scripture.
