Here We Go: Seattle Police Arrest Street Preacher Matthew Meinecke for Reading the Bible Near Homosexual Pride Event

Seattle street preacher Matthew Meinecke was arrested by police officers during a Gay Pride event.

A police officer told Meinecke as he was being arrested, “So at this point we can no longer stand by.”

He added, “The risk that you pose for public safety by remaining here can be mitigated if you leave, it’s your last chance.”

Meinecke replied, “I don’t want to leave because I’m not in danger.”

People cheered as he was put in handcuffs.

Additionally, the street preacher posted a video of some of his Bibles being destroyed.

“Hate Crime this needs to be investigated. I demand someone take actions and press charges. My bibles were destroyed In Hate for my Christian beliefs,” Meinecke tweeted.

Meinecke later explained he was “at the Seattle Center, reading the Bible, not aggressively preaching, not stirring people up, not anything.”

He added, “People throwing things. People vandalizing our property. I think about 10 police officers showed up.”

Commenting on the police, Meinecke said, “Your job is not to silence me and move me.”

In his message to critics, Meinecke asked, “Why are they so offended by words? I just believe in using the word of God.”
