Watertown, Wisconsin police arrested several young Christians on Saturday for preaching outside a public drag queen event targeting children.
“The police, per orders from city leaders, arrested several young people. Three were arrested earlier in the day while inside the park praying and talking to attendees, and then released with warnings,” Christian activist Jason Storms later told The Sentinel.
“It was open to the public, thus the public’s right to free speech carries with them. One was arrested later in the day for preaching on the public sidewalk outside the venue and is being charged with unlawful use of sound amplification and resisting arrest,” he added.
Storms is the same individual who recorded stunning video footage of the latter street preacher, Marcus Schroeder, being arrested.
Hard to believe it…Christian kids are arrested for reading the Bible aloud outside of a drag queen event where biological males-dressed as if their next stop was a Rocky Horror Picture Show-read books about sexuality & transgenderism to kids…then proceeded to dance for them. pic.twitter.com/Ia1KAgRnsx

In the video, which has since disappeared from Twitter, Schroeder is reading from the Bible using a microphone and loudspeaker when local officers surround him, commandeer the microphone, and then proceed to arrest him.
Speaking with The Sentinel following his arrest, Schroeder said that his incarceration has only inspired him and his peers toward “further boldness.”
“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 said.
“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 added.
Nick Proell, another young Christian who was detained, said that he too “absolutely” doesn’t regret what happened.
“I’d do it all over again if it gives me an opportunity to share the good news and rescue innocent children being sexualized by their parents. God will use it for good. We will stand for truth even if we stand alone,” he said.
Meanwhile, the dozen or so police officers at the event did NOTHING about the drag performance, which reportedly included lingerie-wearing performers “dancing and gyrating in front of little children, who were invited to give them one dollar bills,” according to Storms.
This despite the fact that “Wisconsin law forbids individuals from causing a minor to view or listen to ‘sexually explicit conduct,'” as reported by The Sentinel.
Our team has gone inside the Watertown, WI event. Here is a sampling of what children are being subjected to. Shame on the parents that bring them here. Shame on those in our community that think this is okay.

Even though presenting children with sexually explicit content is illegal in Wisconsin, police instead chose to arrest Christians preaching the gospel. pic.twitter.com/1bR6Yc08Vw

Going forward, the Christian preachers are now being smeared thanks to a group of Nazi sympathizers who also showed up to the drag event to protest it. The assumption from leftists and their media allies is that the two groups — the Christians and the Nazis — are one and the same, even though they’re not.
Storms has for his part confirmed to The Sentinel that the Christians had “zero” links, ties, or affiliations with the Nazis. In fact, to hear him tell it, the preachers even tried to preach to the Nazis as well.

Now what’s crazy is that none of the Nazis were arrested. Why? it’s not clear.
Schroeder later went viral for preaching once more — this time to the city council.
“Every society has something it’s intolerant towards. The question is what’s our object of intolerance, and what’s our object of tolerance? When I showed up Saturday, all I did was read from Scripture on the sidewalk. … And by the way, I wasn’t reading any passage that spoke against homosexuality. I was reading a passage from the Bible about love, and I was arrested. No reason,” he said.
“You see, as we become more and more tolerant of sexual immorality, we become more and more intolerant of Christian morality. And the more we become intolerant of Christian morality, the more we’re going to see lawlessness in our streets. The more we become intolerant of Christian morality, the more we’re going to see Nazis,” he added.
