Young man fined $250 for preaching God’s word
Updated: Nov 18
A young Christian man was harassed by police officers and fined $250 as he was attempting to preach God’s word during this time of crisis.
Apostle Hanna, 21, has been preaching in his Faith Avenue community since he was a young boy.
He was on the outside trying to minister to and uplift other youngsters during the ongoing health and economic crisis when police showed up on Cowpen Road and Faith Avenue on Wednesday and wrote him up for not wearing a mask.
According to the ticket, Apostle Hanna can waive his appearance in the Magistrates Court by paying a $250 fine at the Magistrates Court Complex on Nassau Street before October 30, 2020.
If he fails to pay the fine by that date, he will go to trial for not wearing a mask and appear in court on October 30.
The ticket was issued by a sergeant stationed at Cable Beach Police Station.
At a time when callous criminals are killing innocent women and children, a young man is trying to do some good in the country and share hope but has been treated like a common criminal.
Have you ever seen a pastor preach with a mask on?
Now that churches have been allowed to resume services, will police drive from church to church ordering pastors to put on their masks while they’re preaching?
