Under penalty provided by the PSPO, the council forbids a number of behaviors from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., including “vigils where members audibly pray, recite Scripture, genuflect, sprinkle holy water on the ground or cross themselves if they perceive a service-user is passing by.”
On the upside, defacing a van Gogh and stopping an ambulance from reaching A&E are still legal.
Seems council has decreed that something like prayer in passing murmured along a footpath has, ‘a detrimental effect on the quality of life’.
The only religious recitation that can be reasonably associated with “a detrimental effect on the quality of life” is “Allahu Ackbarrrrr!”
Time for malicious misdirection. Drop the crosses and prayers for the innocent, get thyselves fake beards and robes and make freely with speaking the hadiths.
If you haven’t seen Scorsese’s magnificent film Silence (about Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan) now might be a good time.
This is little different to what occurs in NSW.
Try demonstrating outside an abortion clinic

What gives you the stupid idea I even implied that.
go back again to those ESOL lessons.
