‘1984’ is here: Cop demands, ‘What is the nature of your prayer today?’

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

For the second time in just weeks, a resident of Britain has been punished for his thoughts.

Actually, his prayers.

report at LouderWithCrowder explains what happened to an Army veteran who was caught by officers praying for his deceased son in an area also occupied by an abortion business.

The report explained, “Once again England delivers a reminder of why we broke up with them and are never, ever, ever getting back together. U.K. police fined and harassed another person for praying in public. Silently praying. They kind of pray where the words don’t make sounds. The rub is he was praying in a specific area where no prayer is allowed. Nothing is allowed there other than shouting your abortion. Or shouting while receiving one.”

It continued, “As Americans start to rediscover prayer over an injured football player (Go Bills), more people in the U.K. are discovering that standing on the street in silence is against the law if you are standing too close to an abortion clinic and thinking about God. In England, this makes sense to people.”

WND reported on the earlier case when a woman was arrested and charged with four counts for what she was praying silently.

“You don’t have to be pro-life to see that this is wrong,” Isabel Vaughn-Spruce explains in a video about her pending criminal case.

The Daily Caller News Foundation had reported when she was blockaded by police who grilled her about her thoughts.

She was in the proximity of a U.K. abortion business at the time.

And she’s the U.K. March for Life director.

The report said, “Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, a charity volunteer and Christian, was approached by police officers outside of BPAS Robert Clinic in Birmingham, England, and asked if she was praying, according to ADF’s press release. Vaughan-Spruce told the officers she “might be praying silently” and was later arrested.”

She explains, “I’m still trying to get my mind around the fact that I’ve been arrested for silent thoughts going on in the privacy of my own head.”

Search, arrest, trip to the station, and charges.
