Preacher arrested

A man calling himself a saint was arrested Tuesday after elbowing a student while preaching outside of the Tate Student Center at the University of Georgia.

The man, his wife and two children preached outside the Tate Student Center near Lumpkin Street, holding signs reading "You deserve hell" and reportedly telling passing students they were "sinners" and "whores."

The student who was hit, Keaton Law, said it was his "personal mission" to remove the preachers from campus.

Preacher arrested

Brother Ross was arrested Oct. 11 by University of Georgia police after reportedly elbowing a student after a verbal confrontation.

"This man came to our campus yesterday with a couple of his buddies claiming to be saints, and they were just preaching hate," Law said. "And I don't think that's acceptable. We shouldn't be subjected to that kind of verbal abuse all day."

Law said since he only had one class today, he wanted to ensure the preachers were removed.

"I made it my mission. I said 'I'm going to drown them out. I'm going to talk over them,'" he said. "Eventually it just became too much for him and he elbowed me in the face and it pushed me."

Law said he plans to press charges.

"At that point he had broken the law," he said. "And my mission was complete."

The wife and two children collected their signs and began to walk up Lumpkin Street towards the Tate Student Center parking lot. The man's wife declined to comment on the incident.

The Red & Black is in the process of obtaining a police report of the incident.

It's about time someone stands up to these lunatics. I'm all for free speech but never hate speech.

We all should realize this is mere fairy tales and has no place in a modern thinking society. Every ounce of scientific fact disproves these Stone Age beliefs yet we still allow it to drag us down as a society.

I don't agree with Ross' message. I listened to him and the man with him for over an hour on Monday. The message was not Christian nor was it preaching. The Gospel was never proclaimed. I do not agree with, condone, or approve of his verbal abuse. It had nothing to do with Jesus, at least not what I heard.

I do, however, think that some of you guys who rejoice in his arrest need to think the issue through a little more deeply. You see, I heard many students on Monday saying his speech should be shut down. We are blessed to live in a nation where we have free speech. In order for it to be free, it must remain free for all, whether we agree with it or are offended by it. When one person's voice is shut down, it is only a matter of time before another's will be.

It is obvious from the article that Keaton Law had an agenda to shut free speech down because he didn't like the content. Sadly, UGA PD as well as all the students there witnessing the events today allowed him to do that. From my understanding, his response to Ross' degrading speech was no better than what he was subjected to.

That said, I love you guys, and I want you guys to know and receive the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope you can see a clear difference in the preaching or reading I'm doing from my Bible week after week on most Mondays and Wednesdays near the Bulldawg Bucks store. I've never once called any of you vile slang names or attempted to antagonize you. I've simply asked God for the grace to preach the full counsel of His word to you. Many "Christians" or "ministries" on campus ministries are only telling of a few of God's attributes, thus leaving people with a false sense of who God is.

I come to tell you that God the Father sent God the Son Jesus Christ into the world to live a sinless life (that none of us could), die on a cross (that those who would repent and put their faith in Him might receive His righteousness by faith alone and not of works), and to rise from the grave (defeating the power of sin and death that those who believe in him would have eternal life). Those who turn and trust in Christ are saved from their sins and receive God the Holy Spirit who gives new desires to live for King Jesus.

I'm around often to answer your questions, objections, or if you need prayer.

God bless you.
