British Prime Minister David Cameron has said that he disagrees with Pope Francis' comments that there are limits to free speech, regarding the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks. He added that as a Christian, he would be offended if someone insults Jesus Christ, but laws in a free society protect such expression.
"If someone says something offensive about Jesus, I might find that offensive, but in a free society I don't have a right to wreak my vengeance upon them," Cameron told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
"We have to accept that newspapers, magazines can publish things that are offensive to some as long as it's within the law." more >>

But as plans developed, it looks to be more about discussing action steps that the Christian community within the city should take toward resolving social issues.
Church planter and Together LA lead organizer Pastor Brannin Pitre told The Christian Post that as plans for the conference matured, the storyline could be headlined: "Why a bunch of church planters think there's more to loving your city than planting churches."
