The Woke Left Seeks a Perfect Tyranny, Where Silent Prayer Can Land You in Prison


A charity volunteer was arrested after she told police she ‘might’ be praying silently when they asked why she was standing on a public street near an abortion facility, according to a report from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) UK.

Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, the Director of the UK March for Life, was standing near the BPAS Robert Clinic in Kings Norton, Birmingham in an area ADF UK called a ‘censorship zone,’ when police approached her after an onlooker complained she might be praying outside the abortion facility the report said. Birmingham’s authorities established a buffer zone around abortion clinics, which makes it illegal for an individual to engage in any act or attempted act of approval or disapproval as it relates to abortion and includes ‘verbal or written means’ like ‘prayer or counseling.’

‘It’s abhorrently wrong that I was searched, arrested, interrogated by police and charged simply for praying in the privacy of my own mind,’ Vaughan-Spruce said following her arrest. ‘I was exercising my freedom of thought, my freedom of religion, inside the privacy of my own mind. Nobody should be criminalised for thinking and for praying, in a public space in the UK.’

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12


The Worst Tyranny on Earth … Great Britain?

Let’s think of some places where silent prayer by Christians in public places is not illegal. Just off the top of my head, these include:

  • The Islamic Republic of Iran.
  • The Democratic People’s Republic of (North) Korea.
  • Putin’s Russia.
  • The People’s Republic of China.
  • The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
  • Communist Cuba.
  • Afghanistan under the Taliban.

In fact, if we look back at history, we’d be hard-pressed to find any regime so intolerant, so fanatically committed to micromanaging and brainwashing its citizens, that it punished silent, unobtrusive, mental prayer. Not the ISIS “caliphate.” Not Stalin’s Soviet Union. Not Hitler’s Germany. Not Cambodia under the murderous Khmer Rouge.
