Had this tale been true and had it occurred in the United States, the first amendment would not provide protection as you imply Russell. This is because the first amendment is not absolute in its protections. It does not protect a person from committing a form of fraud, which would have been the case in this instance had this been true. You seem to be operating under the misguided belief that the first amendment protects all speech. It does not. You might want to read up on the history of first amendment jurisprudence. There have been cases recently of psychics jailed for "suckering" their clients. Would you advocate that they too should be free of responsibility for their actions because of their first amendment rights?

Now children,   isn’t it time we should get past the giggles factor on this?   Why should this guy be jailed?    Don’t we advocate the 1st Amendment anymore?    I don’t see in that article that he used any illegal aggression/ force against anybody.    Since when do you think it should be illegal to simply take advantage of a ..... um  sucker ?????    If you have that,  all salemanship would instantly be illegal!                                                                                                                                                                 ;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   & nbsp;                                                                                      Rus

I thought that was supposed to be HER line!  Preferable to "HELP, POLICE!"  Or "It's WHAT kind of milk?"

See, reality is so...so...I just have to throw my hands up in the air at this point. I can't believe people actually believed this dude.
 
Of course, the Christians say he was just "posing" as a pastor:
