Mike Overd retrial: the wisdom of Judge David Ticehurst

His Honour Judge David Ticehurst recently impressed a correspondent of mine who was present for the retrial of street preacher Mike Overd.  A brief extract from correspondence…
The correspondent wrote: “The vital issue being decided at Taunton Crown Court on Friday 11th December 2015 was whether a Christian street preacher should be made a criminal for saying ‘God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.  You are a sinner and you need to repent.’
Furthermore: “The Judge asked the Prosecutor ‘What if someone said, you are a sinner and need to repent?’  The Prosecutor replied ‘I would feel humiliated or targeted’ to which the Judge responded ‘You must have lived a very sheltered life.’  Clearly a Judge with common sense and a good understanding of human nature.”
