A gospel singer in the UK was confronted by a volunteer police officer who falsely claimed that singing “church songs” on the streets was prohibited.

The singer, Harmonie London, cited the Human Rights Act in defense of her freedom to sing, leading to the officer walking away in frustration.

The incident sparked backlash, with many perceiving it as biased against Christians.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed the incident, citing a busking by-law, and acknowledged the officer’s mishandling of the situation.

“At the heart of this is a specific by-law related to busking,” the Metropolitan Police stated. “The officer knows she could have handled this differently and is speaking to her manager.”

“We’re aware of significant social media commentary. Some of the comments are personal and hurtful. This is unacceptable,” the London police stated.

This event is part of a larger pattern, as multiple street preachers and Christians have faced arrests for expressing Christian messages, including silent prayer outside abortion clinics.
