A Christian preacher who was arrested after protesting a Pride event in Watertown, Wisconsin, spoke about the experience at a town council meeting on Wednesday.

Marcus Schroeder belongs to the Warriors for Christ group of Christian preachers. He argued that protecting the innocence of children is paramount and therefore drag queen events – especially those with sex dances – should never be a place for children.

The arrest took place on Saturday while evangelizing passages of scripture at the city’s supposedly family-friendly ‘Pride in the Park’ event, which featured drag queens wearing lingerie, reading books and a dance show.

According to video of the incident, Schroeder used a microphone while reading a Bible when officers surrounded him and seized his equipment as he said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” It was explained at the time that he was being arrested for violating a sound ordinance on noise amplification.

Schroeder reacted to the incident saying, “All I did was read scriptures on the sidewalk.”

Christian Warrior for Christ responded after his arrest at a Wisconsin council meeting.

“I was reading a Bible passage about love and I was arrested. No reason, I gave no warning, I said nothing about my amplification to be denied. I was arrested and taken into custody simply for reading the Bible on the sidewalk,” he says.

Schroeder was released with a warning.

“I totally understand the other side. I want to understand the other side. But drag queens twerking on kids…it’s unacceptable, and it’s something we need to notice as a culture,” said he continued. “We may have our disagreements, but there comes a time when we have to realize that we are all going to stand before God one day, and we are going to have to account for what we have done with the children of our society, the innocent spirits and children who deserve to be protected.”

“I just want to set the record straight. I’m more than happy to have this conversation with the other side. I did speeches and debates all through high school, and one of the things what we’ve been taught in debate is that you can’t make an argument for your side until you’re able to make the argument for the other side. hours of discussions with LGBTQ activists.

Schroeder denounced the Nazis who witnessed the event and explained that his principle of faith, that everyone is created in the image of God, is essential to ensuring that one is on the right side of history – and away from hateful ideologies.

Jason Storms, another member of the evangelical ministry, said police also arrested three other young people in their group who were praying and talking to attendees, on orders from city leaders. Storms also claimed that performers danced inappropriately in front of “little kids” who were “asked to give them dollar bills.”

“It was worth it. It is indeed an honor to be considered worthy to stand with the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us and been arrested for the purpose of spreading Christ and his kingdom,” Schroeder told the media after the incident.

“If the police wanted to try to set an example for others or something, the only thing I’ve seen is actually the exact opposite, where more and more people are seeing the seriousness of what’s going on and are called for more action,” he concluded.
