Man Arrested For (Checks Notes …) Reading Bible At Pride Event

  • A video shows Reading, Pennsylvania, police arresting a man after he tries to read a Bible verse during public Pride event.
  • Damon Atkins was attempting to read 1 Corinthians 14:33 when the police confronted him. The Bible verse reads, “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.”
  • After an interaction with police, officers stood between Atkins and the crowd attending the Pride event. When Atkins again began reading off the Bible verse, an officer said, “That’s it. You’re done,” and arrested him.
