Crown “won't let this go”: David Lynn reacts to arrest for preaching in Toronto's “Gay Village”

David MenziesMission Specialist

Arrested for... preaching? We caught up with Toronto street preacher David Lynn to discuss his most recent day in court. 


Pastor Lynn was arrested last month for reciting biblical passages in Toronto’s Gay Village, something that is now apparently verboten. Lynn tells us the Crown is playing hardball with him.

Apparently, quoting the Bible in certain areas of Hogtown is now considered to be an act of conveying... hate speech?

I don’t think this has anything to do with race. It has everything to do with being anti Christian. The police are enforcing Sharia Law. If they are not, then it is some kind of unbelievable coincidence taking place. I imagine those cops are so proud of themselves. Doing much the same, as what was done to Jesus Christ, when he was arrested and imprisoned, over two thousand years ago. History repeats itself, we still haven’t learned. The peace and love that Pastor Lynn preaches is met with Persecution from those who have the public trust. But when Islam preaches hate they are left alone, even supported with a hands off policy. This is starting to look a lot like a religious war.

I am surprised nobody has asked the question of wether or not he will be allowed to preach in prison.

I heard on another website that one of the arresting officers is a prominent member of the LBGT community and had it in for the pastor. If true these officers are acting like gestapo.

Check out the People’s Party of Canada. Only federal party not aligned with the left that is fighting to protect Canadians rights to free speech.

Bet if it was Islamic preaching there would be no arrests.

There is free speech and then there is broadcasting your voice over a amplified speaker. That’s two different issues.
This does not compare to tommy robinson at al!

Jan G in this case there were gay people who asked the cops not to arrest him and stood up for his free speech, this is more of the Liberal agenda than the majority of gays.

casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.

I Peter 5: 7-9

Fear not Chrystia Freeland- that champion of free speech- will come to your rescue.

This is over reach, from the top down. Its hard to respect the law when it acts like an ass.

Since when has a section of Toronto been declared a ‘gay village’? Says who? As far as I know there are no parts of any Canadian city off limits to Christians.

“Getting rid of Christian Preachers is just a start, soon it will be all Christians who are on the hit list….Are We going to let it happen?”


Keith….Christians let that happen some time ago…which is why I couldn’t be bothered to be a christian anymore….nobody cared….let that sink in.

Yes Ron Joseph.. I agree with you that out of every bad thing that happens … there will be something good will happen.. But Trudeau and his goons are tripling down on the bad sh!t.. and not slowing down.

They will keep harassing him until he sues them for violating his Charter Rights and Freedoms!
They allow antifa to commit all kinds of violence as the police just stand and watch, but they arrest someone for saying Jesus in public?
Sue their asses into bankruptcy!

These incursions against our rights are occurring all across Western countries.
The driver is globalism – which means a loss of our sovereignty and all the heritage, wealth and rights accrued under that sovereignty.
The players are traitors, betraying their fellow countrymen for a globalist payoff. The main players are the 5 P Professionals!
The homosexual mafia is one sub-group, or plank in a platform, created to destroy from within.
Anti-Christian persecution, then prosecution, is part of the agenda. False arrest and lawfare just more tools designed to attack Canadians and other Westerners who haven’t complied with the New World Order Correct Think yet…

I’d start fighting back before it’s too late…at some point in forcing fascism upon a people, it becomes too late to fight back.

Most people here believe this new Canadian attitude is related to Trudeau’s policies. I believe anything bad for Trudeau is a good thing for us, so I hope you don’t think that I am going off topic by showing this good news.
Quebec is joining the Anti-Carbon Tax group of Provinces against Trudeau. This will hurt him in a big way in the upcoming election.

Canadian Taxpayers Federation

Dear Supporters.

The carbon tax fight has been full of twists and turns and now we got a real shocker.

Not long ago, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation was one of the only voices opposing the carbon tax and people said we could never win. We kept fighting. One by one Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba and New Brunswick joined Saskatchewan to push back on the federal carbon tax. Guess who’s joining the fight now: Quebec.

Imagine being a fly on the wall in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office when Quebec announced it’s opposing the federal carbon tax at the Supreme Court.

Here’s what’s happening.

Quebec has a cap-and-trade carbon tax that’s equivalent to about 4.9 cents per litre on gasoline. Right now, that’s fine with Ottawa. But Ottawa is never content for long. The feds are telling the provinces that the carbon taxes have to go up every year until they hit 11 cents per litre.

Quebec isn’t going to let Ottawa tell it what to do. Not now. Not Ever. Now it’s jumping into the Supreme Court case to “protect the autonomy of the provinces and their ability to decide for themselves what concerns their own fields of competence.” In other words, Quebec is telling Ottawa back off.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is the only non-government organization consistently standing up for taxpayers and fighting the carbon tax in court while the other side is stacked with organizations such as the David Suzuki Foundation that can tap donors with bottomless pockets.

The thing to remember is that Canada is under the control of a gang of Muslim Quislings, namely Trudeau and his gang, who’s goal is to rid the Country of all none Muslims. Getting rid of Christian Preachers is just a start, soon it will be all Christians who are on the hit list….Are We going to let it happen?
commented 2019-07-15 19:21:51 -0400
Never had any problems with gays and lesbiens, but if they continue attacking christians, maybe we’ll close our eyes when they’ll be attacked by their mouchlims friends.

Notice how when Pastor Lynn was arrested that it was by the all white section of the Toronto hypothetical police force. Clearly the champagne socialists of TO are anti-black bigots. Where was BLM (Bacon Lettuce Mayo) in protesting this socialist act against one of their brothers?

Think about it, if it had been a white imam quoting the Koran on the same topic would he have been arrested?

Every Minister, Pastor, Priest in the GTA should be supporting this guy’s right to speech. Where are they? Under rocks? Hiding in the long grass?

No Jamie…the vast majority of ordained clergy in the Toronto area…are gay….let that sink in.

Imagine what those useless John Tory Hacks would charge Pastor Lynn with if he was White?

David. Please stop with the “over-correction” theory. You’re making excuses for them, like it or not. It has nothing to do with that. See my comment below for reality!

Every modern day Rule of Law Democracy was created by White, right wing Christian conservatives. If you want to change us into a communist country, you have to bash the White males and the Christians. That’s all there is to it!

Muta Ween.
The gay movement may have been about rights to some, but to the lefty elite it was always about bashing our Christian-based society. The left simply does the opposite of the Christians as a way to wreck things. The bible says one man shall not lay with another man, so they do the opposite and promote being gay. That’s it, it’s not complicated.

The gay movement has morphed into a dangerous entity and now should be identified as the LSMFT Movement.
Leftist Socialist Marxist Fascist Totalitarians.
What started as a search for equal rights and dignity now has nothing to do with these lofty aspirations. Many of them have already been attained .
But the movement has been infiltrated with the most radical and vocal activists in our society and their way is the only way.
Silencing ,suppressing and eventually eradicating all that stands in their way is their goal.
Sadly the misguided politicians and police are active participants in what will be the complete loss of free speech of any kind .

The Gay Mafia attacks not only Catholic Priests and the Catholic Church, it attacks anyone who is Christian and is a threat. Look at how gay priests have been infiltrating the Catholic Church for decades now and the big mess it’s in.

This whole gay political power has to stop.
The gay movement is not designed to achieve equality, it is to gain power and Trudeau and media are letting them.
