Law enforcement officers in Alberta, Canada, reportedly arrested a teenager handing out Bibles after an altercation broke out between him, his supporters, and a group of counter-protesters.
Josh Alexander, 16, tweeted Wednesday he “was handcuffed and put in a paddy wagon for offering students Bibles on a public sidewalk in Calgary.” He posted a video of the ordeal:
Today I was handcuffed and put in a paddy wagon for offering students bibles on a public sidewalk in Calgary.
I was released and told if I returned I would be arrested and charged.
I continued handing out bibles.
For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ. pic.twitter.com/5y7US5DV6m
