How Britain is turning Christianity into a crime (Melanie Phillips, 7th September 2006, Daily Mail)

How long will it be before Christianity becomes illegal in Britain? This is no longer the utterly absurd and offensive question that on first blush it would appear to be.

An evangelical Christian campaigner, Stephen Green was arrested and charged last weekend with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.

So what was this behaviour? Merely trying peacefully to hand out leaflets at a gay rally in Cardiff.

So what was printed on those leaflets that was so threatening, abusive or insulting that it attracted the full force of the law?

Why, none other than the majestic words of the 1611 King James Bible.

The problem was that they were those bits of the Bible which forbid homosexuality. The leaflets also urged homosexuals to "turn from your sins and you will be saved".

But to the secular priests of the human rights culture, the only sin is to say that homosexuality is a sin.

It's time to give up on Europe. Since they seem to despise Christianity so much, let the Christians emigrate to the USA. Those who are left can bow down to their Muslim overlords and learn what true intolerance means.

So at the Finsbury Park mosque, the imam is preaching to the faithful to love thine enemies and to turn the other cheek. Yes?

Why would he?

The unreformed Mexica were enemies of humanity
Whether of not this made them "immoral" depends upon one's conception of morality. In any event, their reformation was a great, good work.

We need not, and, apparently, may not, address the case of others who might benefit from reformation.

The Mexica stand as an excellent refutation of the canard that dealing firmly with demonic cultures is "racism." On the contrary, the desire to improve the lot of the unfortunate inmates of this or that spiritual jailhouse is the non-racist position. It is the height of racism to hold that the bondage of their loved Egyptian night is good enough for the lesser breeds.

To pretend that immigration must be stopped lest the Aztecs take over is the height of idiocy.
