The staggering hypocrisy of the far left and their fellow travellers in the media has become obvious with the relentless demonstrations and articles critical of the Pope’s views on homosexuality, female priests and the Equality Act — while completely ignoring far more severe Islamic policies on these issues.
Long time homosexual activist Peter Peter Tatchell has even helped create something called the “Protest the Pope” campaign. At a public meeting of that organisation last month, Mr Tatchell said a protest against the Pope was necessary to call on the “British government to disassociate itself from the Pope’s intolerant teachings on issues such as women’s rights [and] gay equality.”
The Pope has also called the Labour, Tory and Lib Dem-supported Equality Act “sinful” as it in effect takes away an important part of religious freedom.
All of these issues have been raised time and time again by Mr Tatchell and his colleagues, and then faithfully repeated by their complaint friends in the media in an attempt to raise up hatred against Christianity in general.
Yet all of these organisations — from the anti-Pope groups through to the militant humanist and atheist organisations — have been quiet as church mice when it comes to questioning the much more extreme views of the Islamic immigrants of this country.
While the Pope might only have condemned homosexuals as sinful, no-one in the Catholic Church today actually suggests any legal sanction against that community.
However, in the Islamic religion, homosexuality is still regarded as a mortal sin and is punishable by death in many Muslim countries.
Eminent scholars of Islam, such as Sheikh ul-Islam Imam Malik, (who created one of the four schools of Islamic jurisprudence followed by Sunni Muslims to this day) and Imam Shafi (the founder of Islamic jurisprudence) amongst others, have ruled that Islam disallowed homosexuality and ordained capital punishment for a person guilty of it.
Yet strangely, Mr Thatchell and his media friends are silent about Islam’s view of homosexuality, despite the spreading influence of that religion and its adherents all over Europe.
As to women’s rights: It is true that the Catholic Church refuses to let women be ordained as priests. Yet Mr Thatchell and his friends have somehow never said anything about the fact that women are specifically forbidden from leading men in prayer in a mosque and that that religion even practises sexually segregated services.
Once again, it seems that the “anger” of the reds and militant atheists is reserved only for Christianity and never for the Islamic immigrants’ religion, which is left alone to implement dictates which the modern Catholic Church would never consider.
This attitude forms part of a larger assault on Christianity generally, only because it is so closely identified with the “enemy,” namely Western Civilisation.
The British National Party believes in a secular Britain, with freedom of religion.
It is however very conscious of the fact that the majority of British people still identity themselves with the cultural trappings of Christianity at the very least, and that this is under assault from the nation-wreckers who would rather see an Islamic state created in our lands.
As such, the BNP will take its place in the ranks defending Christianity as long as the majority of the British people are that way inclined.
