1: BRITAIN ARRESTS WINSTON CHURCHILL! (Goodbye, dear old England, I loved you).
Winston Churchill once said “Never, never, never give up.” Now Britain has given up-without a fight…
A UK politician arrested for quoting Churchill could face 2 years in prison. Paul Weston, co-founder and leader of the GB Liberty party and a candidate for Member of the European Parliament, was arrested Saturday, hauled off in a police van, and could face two years in prison. All for reading a passage from Winston Churchill’s book, The River War, regarding Islam (I have pasted the quote at the bottom of this post).
According to Weston’s party:
Mr. Weston, a candidate in the 22 May European Elections in the South East, was arrested on 26 April in front of Winchester Guildhall for quoting in public a passage critical of Islam written by Winston Churchill, using a megaphone.
He was fingerprinted and obliged to submit to DNA sampling, following which he was bailed with a return date to Winchester Police on May 24th.
The case is now being presented to the Crown Prosecution Service. If the CPS decides to prosecute, then Mr Weston will be arrested, awaiting trial, when he presents himself to the police on May 24th.
2: SITTIN’ ON THA TOILET
Andy Warhol, famous for predicting that, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”, could not have foreseen how quickly his prophecy would become outdated.
Who, even twenty years ago, could have imagined that a woman would receive over eighty million views around the world from people wishing to see her sitting on a toilet? Admittedly, her little rap has rhythm, and one could almost say that her performance is “moving”. But what came to my mind when my eleven-year old son enlightened my life with this little gem was the question “Why are people not similarly attracted to information on matters or import, such as the meaning of life, or evidence supporting faith in a loving Creator?”
One thing this video does achieve is to teach us how to become famous: all you have to do is engage in a little toilet talk!
3: HEIDI MUND
In honor of Heidi Mund’s brave stand in Germany last November, I bring her story to your attention, knowing that I might be the only Christian who didn’t hear about it until now. Thanks to Hal Lindsey for retelling it.
In the German Rhineland’s Memorial Church of the Reformation an “interfaith” concert was held, designed to bring Christians and Muslims together. During the concert an Imam was asked to give the Muslim call to prayer. As he began, German Heidi Mund stood up and yelled out “Jesus Christ alone is Lord of Germany!” She then quoted Martin Luther, “Here I stand, I can do no other”. Heidi, formally an atheist was kicked out of a Christian church in her own country, and the Imam delivered the call to prayer. How many Muslim mosques allow prayer in the name of Jesus?” asked Hal.
Heidi has since received death threats from “peaceful” Muslims.
As Hal said “Political correctness and its demand for inclusiveness requires that only we Christians have to (are expected to) lay aside the great distinctives of our faith”
According to our faith, we can and must love those we do not agree with, but we cannot compromise the gospel of Jesus Christ without totally removing its power, denying our Lord, and calling the Father a liar. Thanks to Heidi Mund, who set an example which all of us in the West will, unfortunately, soon be in a position to follow.
4: LOWERING THE POPULATION
I often hear talk along the lines that there are too many people in the world, and we should “get rid” of some of them.
I’ve even heard it here, in a small town where you could go a hundred miles in any direction and hardly see anyone.
As a truly monumental example of this kind of thinking the “Georgia Guidestones”, an American version of Stonehenge funded by a wealthy individual, are adorned with the words “…guidestones to an Age of Reason”, each one “asserting ten guidelines”, and are obviously a parody on the Ten Commandments.
One of these ten pearls of wisdom (joke) reads as follows:
“MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE”
Now I’m no mathematician, but I can deduce fairly easily that five hundred million from seven billion means that six and a half billion people must somehow be disposed of in order to fulfill this particular “guideline”, and the chances are that you are in that number, unless you’re wealthy or very beautiful, or know just the right people.
As I discussed in a previous post, everyone in the world could fit into the tiny Republic of Ireland and have over a hundred square feet each.No, the world is not overcrowded, except in some urban concentrations. People who talk about bumping a few billion people off- in many cases those in positions of power and influence, and who would impress Hitler with their views were he still around, are sometimes the same people who will say that Christians are hateful and unloving, and that the God who created us all is similarly hateful and unloving. If they’re so concerned about lowering the world’s population, they should begin with themselves, and pass their money onto the rest of us who can put it to good use!
THE CHURCHILL QUOTE:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”
