Last month we told you about Lionheart, the blogger from the UK, who was in the United States and feared returning to his homeland because the authorities there threatened to arrest him over words he used on his blog. See our earlier post here in which we made the important point that we all must stick together if we are to preserve perhaps the strongest pillar of western society—free speech.
We learned from the Center for Vigilant Freedom that Lionheart has decided to seek asylum in the United States. Imagine that, an Englishman seeking political asylum in America! What is the world coming to!
“I am applying for political asylum on the grounds of political persecution and human rights issues.
“All I’ve done is written words on a blog. That doesn’t befit a prison sentence.”
