James McConnell row: Police probe firebrand pastor who called Islam 'spawn of the devil'
by Rebecca Black
The PSNI is investigating an evangelical preacher who slammed Islam as "spawn of the devil" during a Sunday service.
Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness yesterday condemned the remarks made by Pastor James McConnell, who slammed the Islamic faith as "Satanic" and a "doctrine spawned in Hell" at Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast.
Mr McGuinness called for a full investigation and said Sinn Fein will be raising the matter at the Policing Board.
