The Erosion of Christian Human Rights

Why  does everyone seem to have human rights except christians in today’s world? Christians are once again under attack for their faith in England, this time by The National Secular Society (NSS) who have been in a long-running battle with Bideford Council, and are now threatening to take them to the European Court because the age-old traditional saying of prayers before a council meeting convenes human rights.

Bideford – Council Under Fire

The moment of prayer before a council meeting is a tradition that goes back centuries, but is now under attack because it ‘breaches the human rights of atheist and agnostic council members’. Well I say, what about the human rights of Christians? The NSS is determined to halt the practice through judicial means and will not be satisfied with just winning against Bideford, but will, it is believed, go on to have the practice banned in all council chambers up and down the country.

Founder of the NSS

This society, formed in 1866 by Charles Bradlaugh, was intended to combat Christian religious privilege, separate church and state, and promote secularism. Currently, the society campaigns for the disestablishment of the Church of England, an end to tax exemption for religious schools, and public funding of priests who work in jails, hospitals, and the armed forces. They are also deeply involved in the abolition of the blasphemy laws and are intent on keeping religion out of human rights, healthcare, legislation and equality issues. And now, they have Bideford council in their sights! According to councillors, they have been chosen because it is not a rich council.

The sad thing is these people don’t belong to any faith, they are agnostics and atheists, and because of their lack of faith, it seems they think they can restrict the practice ours. It is without doubt the right of any person to be an atheist or agnostic, but equally so, it the right of any individual to believe and practice that belief. Britain is after all a christian country.

The act of prayers before a council meeting is a way for councillors to seek guidance to do the right thing for the people they represent, and yes, it is based on christian beliefs and values, but those who do not believe do not have to take part. To quote the words of a christian councillor, Tony Inch; “those who do not wish to take part can twiddle their thumbs”.

According to Keith Porteous Wood, Executive Director of the NSS, councillors should pray at home or in church but not at meetings (he now wishes to tell us when we can and cannot pray?); “It is not appropriate in modern-day Britain for prayers to form an integral part of council meetings”. It all comes down to a small number of people wishing to force their views on the majority and put an end to yet another age-old tradition, when the simple answer is just to not take part. Those who value their christian faith and traditions can take a moment or so to pray, but it doesn’t mean the non-believers have to. They can out of respect for the human rights of the believers wait just a moment or two with their own thoughts while the prayers are concluded.

The most annoying part of situations like this is people who play the ‘Human Rights’ card in an effort to deny others theirs!

Standing Up For Christian Rights

The former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has voiced his concern at yet another attack on christian values in Britain by calling it an “attack on freedom”, and he is quite right. He said; “The centuries long tradition of saying prayers before council meetings is simply an acknowledgement of the important role the Christian faith plays in civic life. The attempt to rule such prayers as discriminatory is an attack on freedom and a cynical manoeuvre to drive public expression of faith from national as well as local life.”

The Human Rights Charter 1948

The Human Rights Charter, the world’s response to the atrocities that took place during the Holocaust of WW2, was signed in 1948 at the UN but is sadly used today by any crackpot, fringe group, terrorist, criminal or the insane to get what they want at any cost. Its misuse is eroding all the nobler values that have stood the human race in good stead for centuries. Now, just because you don’t like what Joe Blogg’s does because it doesn’t fit with what you think he should be doing, take him to court to satisfy your own twisted ideals.

It’s all wrong folks! Our higher moral standards, religion, system of government, our very way of life is being dictated by a handful of self-righteous, self-centred individuals who think they can use the law for their own ends just because what we do does not fit with their ideals.

It doesn’t matter what noble purpose our forefathers had when creating these ‘Rights’ for the people, once the edifice starts to crumble through gross misuse it will not be long before the whole building collapses, and where will we be then; Back in the Dark Ages?

May God help us see the light of reason.

Gordon, You’re So Out of Touch!

Praying for a Win?

Gordon Brown has once again proved how out of touch he is with the people of Britain. In a speech given to the Thames Valley Police last Monday he had the gall to suggest the ‘fear of crime’ by the population was nothing more than a political ploy by the Tories! What planet does this guy live on?

Fear of crime has been one of the main causes of concern for people in all walks of life for a decade! People no longer feel safe walking down the street of most towns and cities in the UK, and certainly not in their own home. Since the rise of the drunken yob culture in Britain it would be a brave man or woman who walks through the town centre on a Saturday evening. And yet, our esteemed Prime Minister thinks it’s a Tory ploy to get more votes.

Labour has been soft on crime ever since it came to power, in fact, it has exasperated the situation with its immigration policy because many of those responsible for the crime wave are immigrants. The Justice System is on the verge of total collapse due to his governments policy of releasing prisoners early and giving shorter sentences to ease the prison overcrowding instead of building more prisons.

Edlington Twins

Someone who commits cold-blooded murder gets less time in prison than a caring relative who assists a terminally ill patient in great pain to die. Career criminals are given community sentences which most of them ignore, and vicious torturers like the Edlington twins will be out in less than five years with a new identity.

He told the Thames Valley Police that in the last ten years prison sentences have ‘gone up’. What were they prior to that, zero? The number of repeat offenders who were released early has gone up dramatically since Labour swept to power in 1997, but nothing has been done to get these people off the streets.

Habitual Criminal Walid Salem

The case of Waled Salem the Egyptian career criminal who was caught by millionaire Munier Hussain and finally taught a lesson is a fine example, a lesson I might add that saw Hussain and his brother go to jail and Salem let off!

Prisoner Tag

Now Labour is apologising to jailbirds who will not be released early under the cancelled End of Custody Licence (ECL) Scheme and offering them early release with a tag. Under the ECL scheme, prisoners were released up to eighteen days before completion of their sentence, but under the new plan, they would be released up to four-and-a-half-months early! I can hear the cheers from the prisoners from here!

Another bone of contention brought to light yesterday by Lord Cary, a former Archbishop of Canterbury, accuses the government of ‘a strident and bullying campaign’ to marginalise Christianity in the name of political correctness. He said; “We have reached a point where politicians are mocked for merely expressing their faith….I cannot imagine any politician expressing concern that Britain should remain a Christian country. That reticence is a scandal and a disgrace to our history”.

Outspoken

Speaking before the Christian Broadcasting Council he highlighted two cases of people being victimised because of their faith. Olive Jones was sacked from her position as teacher for offering to pray for a cancer patient with whom she was working, and Caroline Petrie, a nurse in Somerset was suspended for offering to pray for a patient on her ward. She was later reinstated after a public outcry.

He is not the only one of our top clergy to express such a view. Last month Dr. John Sentamu the Bishop of York made his views known with the following; “Christianity is being pushed out of public life in a ‘ferocious and insidious manner'”.

Just how far down this ‘Politically Correct’ path are we expected to go. The government is without doubt backing this ridiculous practice, and so are the courts. Are we to remove all signs of religion in the country so we don’t upset the Muslims. Must they rule our country? Unless drastic steps are taken to reassert the rights of Britons in their own country, they will be within a few short years. They are already well on the way to achieving complete domination of local and national government.

Its the same old ‘elections are near’ bullshit from both the major political parties who are trying to dazzle, or more likely ‘con’ us into voting for them. As usual they pump out the same old rhetoric of how they alone are capable of ‘saving the nation’, but its all a smokescreen because once they are in power all the promises will be forgotten and it will be ‘business as usual’.

The Labour strategy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of labour supporting immigrants has kept them in power for far too long and now it is time they were put out to graze. They have done more than enough damage to our homeland, damage which I am sorry to say, may be irreversible.

David Cameron

No government in the history of our nation has done as much damage to our once proud nation, and so successfully sabotaged all the sacrifices made by previous generations to keep our country great. It is time for them to be consigned to history with the hope that the next government has the guts to salvage what is left of our land and our culture before it disappears into history. Whatever you do, don’t expect ‘Smoothie’ Cameron and his bunch to change anything if they win the election.

May God have mercy on us all!

Roy.
