Evangelists' arrest shows a double standard To the Editor:
The arrest of Michael Marcavage and Ken Fleck by Penn police (“Preachers to take U. to court,” 7/15/10) because they were preaching to Muslims is outrageous and shows a double standard that pervades our society when it comes to Christians and Muslims. Recently I was walking through Brooklyn when the Muslim call to prayer was blasted at me from a mosque. Did police pour into the mosque to arrest the Muezzin that was calling me to prayer. Of course not. No policeman does anything to stop Muslims from calling infidel people like me to prayer, but if a Christian hands out a Bible, he gets surrounded by police and imprisoned. Why this double standard?
