RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN ENGLAND: "A police community support officer ordered two Christian preachers to stop handing out gospel leaflets in a predominantly Muslim area of Birmingham. . . . The evangelists say they were threatened with arrest for committing a 'hate crime' and were told they risked being beaten up if they returned.
