Pastor charged with causing a disturbance in Toronto's Gay Village - 2019-06-05
A 39-year-old pastor was charged with causing a disturbance in the city's Gay Village, Toronto police said Wednesday, after he took to the streets to preach pro-Christian messages to passersby a day before.
Videos posted online show pastor David Lynn speaking on a megaphone and attracting what police described as a "large hostile crowd" Tuesday evening at Church St. and Wellesley St. E.
"I'm coming out as a Christian," Lynn can be heard telling onlookers, who refuse to interact with him in a video posted by Christ's Forgiveness Ministries of which he is a founding member, according to the organization's website. "You don't want to talk to me — you have your backs faced against me, and you won't tolerate me," he says.
