Millions go to the polls today to elect their Euro MPs and, in England, local councillors, and a rabidly bigoted group of pillocks called Christian Concern for Our Nation (CCFON) want us to vote for a Christian.
Why do they want us to vote for a Christian? Well, “Under this Government,” writes Andrea Minichiello Williams, one of this bunch of tossers, “every safeguard against the promotion of the practice of homosexuality to our children and more generally in society has been removed with the result that it is now Christians who face discrimination for defending the Biblical view on this subject.”
In Euro and local elections, “CCFON urges all our supporters to seek the Lord about where to place our vote and to exercise biblical wisdom in our choice of party.”
Now I know you’re allowed to put your party’s name on the ballot paper, but, strictly, elections are for candidates, not parties. However, that explains why CCFON are criticising Westminster politicians (who, more’s the pity, are not seeking election today) by asking us to vote a certain way (i.e. be careful which party we vote for) in Europe and local councils.
Anyway, that aside, this tells us without a doubt just what’s on Williams’s mind when she wants us to “seek the Lord”.
And what will the Lord say? No poofters! That’s what he’ll say. No poofters!
However, it’s hard to disagree with everything a perceived enemy says. That would be a very black-or-white, for-us-or-against-us way of thinking. And CCFON go on in their emailed bulletin, to which I’m signed up, to say:
[N]one of the political parties are willing to take a robust stand against extreme elements of Islam that seek to impose sharia law on society and so seriously infringe on [sic – she means either “impinge on” or “infringe”] the rights of women and those who wish to change their faith.
Just as you find yourself agreeing (while adding that sharia law would also be bad for gays, which doesn’t seem to bother CCFON, of course), you come across this, in the same paragraph:
While there is talk about the need for change none of the political parties are willing to embrace the root cause of our problem which is the rejection of our biblical heritage.
So is the fear of sharia law just a rejection of our biblical heritage, or are they genuinely pissed off with creeping Islamisation? Hard to tell. Still in the same paragraph, they then say, “Our leaders have forgotten that while righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people (Prov 14:34).”
So, in spite of her paragraphing it all together, I suspect we’ve moved off sharia and on to something called “sin”.
And Williams’s solution to the problem of “sin” is “voting for those who are standing on a platform of Christian values[,] which is what this nation and the whole of Europe so desperately needs, for without a vision the people perish (Prov 29:18).”
And with that vision, the freedom of lesbians and gays to express their natural sexuality in the way that is open to – and encouraged of – straights will be crushed under “biblical wisdom”, in spite of the fact that, in your view, Ms Williams, it must be your sky fairy who gave lesbians and gays that natural sexuality.
What a sick bunch of fuckwits these people are! It’s just as well few will be heeding her words.
