Wisconsin Teen Arrested For Reading the Bible Out Loud In Public


A Wisconsin man was arrested over the weekend for reading his Bible on public property to protest an LGBT “drag” event aimed at children, according to a report.

A video posted on social media shows a young man and student identified as Marcus Schroeder reading scripture when he is approached by a number of police officers in the community of Watertown, Wisconsin.

As he was hand-cuffed, more officers gathered around him until he faced at least a half-dozen of them.

Schroeder was told he was being arrested for amplifying his message with the use of a microphone and a speaker — in spite of the fact he was exercising his First Amendment right to free speech from a sidewalk.

Schroeder wore a T-shirt that stated, “WARRIORS FOR CHRIST.”

The back of the shirt, which can be seen during the arrest, reads, “I WILL STAND FOR TRUTH EVEN IF I STAND ALONE.”

The video gained a lot of traction on Twitter on Monday, which led to calls for people to “pray for this young man.”

The Republic Sentinel reported the protest and scripture reading was organized by members of the Mercy Seat Christian Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Schroeder is a member of the church and spoke to the outlet following his arrest. The young man said his detainment was for a worthy cause.

“It was worth it. It’s actually an honor to be counted worthy to stand with the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us and been arrested for the sake of spreading Christ and his kingdom,” he stated.

Added, Schroeder, “If the police wanted to try and set an example for others or anything like that, the only thing I’ve seen is actually the exact opposite, where more and more people are seeing the severity of what’s going on and being called to more action.”

He concluded his arrest would only further embolden him to spread the Gospel.

Another member of the church was also reportedly detained but was quickly released.

Schroeder was charged with unlawful use of sound amplification and resisting arrest, according to Jason Storms — who is also a member of the church and who reportedly filmed the arrest.

The Western Journal reached out to the Watertown Police Department for comment but did not hear back in time for publication.
