Preacher on Trial for Calling Islam “Satanic”


James McConnell, 78, is an evangelical preacher in Northern Ireland who could serve six months in jail for violating the Communications Act because a sermon was broadcast over the Internet where he called Islam “satanic” in a sermon.

The prosecutor claims the case is not about freedom of religion or expression but a prominent Muslim scholar has a different opinion.
