The leader of the Evangelical Alliance has said that legislation may need to be altered following the case against Pastor James McConnell.

Peter Lynas, a former barrister, was speaking to the News Letter after the pastor walked out of court a free man.

Meanwhile, David Farlow – a 40-year-old Carryduff man, who worships at the pastor’s tabernacle – said jokingly that the next service at the church will probably not contain a sermon about Islam.

Emphasising the Christian virtue of forgiveness, he said others can say what they want about his faith, but that he would pray for them and there is “no need to take people to court”.
