shoot yourself in the foot

is an expression that people use to describe if a measure you take, turns out detrimental against yourself.

British establishment and conservationists always want to help promote the establishment, of which the Church of England is an important cornerstone.


St James the Less church

Church of England schools were long seen as the ultimate part of the pro-English upbringing of those wanting to serve Queen and country.

The church being the glue that holds the social fibre of English society together, educated mind and spirits. Yet an essential part of English society was the emergence of unions, which branched out of working-class environments and became an integral part of life.

Along comes our latest bout of Conservative government seeking to destroy the stronghold unions have on the confidence of the working classes. This of course includes the pocket so Muslim immigrants who follow special social rules culminating in Sharia law.

Easy peasy things thinks the government, we just shake it all up, we get rid of the unions and the radical Islamist scourge at the same time.

There then followed a strong rule change, making working compulsory, forcing people to accept any job on offer and reducing work security through a change in working contracts law.

Also, to throw into the mix came the idea to “increase the quality of schooling” by allowing free schools and by tearing schools away from councils and getting them directly funded by government e.g. through the academy system.

Whilst previously we saw a shortage of school places, we now see an oversaturation of educational provision. Schools open everywhere but people generally have less children because of working law and benefit changes.

All the uprooting of social connections, suitably assisted by changes in housing law and provision thoroughly shook society to the core.

In Tower Hamlets just about the only traditional education available was through Church of England schools. Yet academies and free schools have mushroomed out of nowhere, leaving Muslim children to attend non-church schools with often 85-95% Muslims, whilst the Catholic kids, cram into the few Catholic schools.

The Church of England, through its Liberal approach suffers from a loss of church attendance and general lack of draconian church discipline, is not very attractive to Muslims who experience much more pressure to follow strict religious rules and enjoy the feeling of being forced to adhere to a religious life-style.

That makes Church of England schools less attractive to those who want to experience dogma.

Tower Hamlets has long been the source of constant political controversy and is run by more or less left-wing factions of the Labour Party and similar constellations of political movements like AspireRespect or Tower Hamlets First.

The current Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, who was seen as a moderate leader by many, is however very keen to rid Tower Hamlets of one of the oldest Church of England schools at the earliest opportunity. It is just another weapon to stab local society into the heart of traditional values and help undermine the Monarchy.

Had this Conservative government not sought to change society to the core with a flurry of legal changes, we would not be in this situation that English traditional education is being disbanded in this part of London.

Any benefit that may have shown through ‘better’ academy schools is wiped out by disturbance constant change brings. Children need to feel safe not only physically but also mentally by being able to rely on those services, adults around them, knowing they can grow up into society and contribute to that society at a later stage.

raines school

Raine’s Foundation, C.o.E. Secondary in Bethnal Green

The children of Raine’s Foundation school in Tower Hamlets are being torn apart from their brand-new school, strewn into the wind of education and lost the ability to concentrate on their GCSE and A-levels because their school is threatened by closure.

The last thing, kids want to worry about is finding a school or changing school when they need to concentrate on years of course work to get the best results. The travesty is that the education and teachers at Raine’s are very good and pupils can achieve best results, they do run a Year 11 High Attainment Program in conjunction with Stem. Why do they want to close a school that produces top class achievers, just because it is a Church of England school?

Most parents choose schools wanting peace of mind, being able to leave their children there till 6. Form and then go onto university or into a working life.

Yet the chopping and changing politics by this current government has thrown everything around into a big mixing bowl of social change and nobody is any the wiser of what is happening.

Of course, being able to plan ahead has become a luxury and that is what this government wants, they do not want people to get too comfortable because happy people are dangerous people who can start to demand even better than they have.

So, this Conservative government in fact chips away on conservative values and education by creating a whirlwind social environment that destroys all conservative values and creates anxiety and fear among our young people.

That is one of the reasons why kids now feel they need to demonstrate about the climate emergency instead of going to school, why school kids feel they need knives to protect themselves as they no longer feel safe as nothing can be relied upon any longer. Parents aren’t even at home after school any longer to calm down any fears, parents are forced into working instead of being there to parent.

Everthing is being eroded for working people, starting by housing, to working contracts and schooling. The reduction of policing services has another detrimental impact onto society.

Getting rid of everything known and comforting is perhaps the biggest mistake this government makes.

There are no particular problems at Raine’s Foundation, yet over-crowded popular schools often attract the most problems. But the per-pupil funding will prefer big problem schools before smaller, high quality schools because of the funding formulae.

Just today, the World Economic Forum published figures to show how stress severely affects our University Students, which means the format of education needs to change, to become more user friendly rather than production belt style.

Raine’s provides that friendly but high quality education, that is of excellent quality.  Universities must follow a model that produces happy students.


The equality conundrum

The UK reels under strain from an attempt to get everybody equal. That principle suffers in law and it suffers in human terms as well. In law it is impossible to get equality between parties that are of different wealth and in personal terms it is impossible to treat everybody equally on various terms.

With gay marriage now going to be legal in the UK, we hear those more older and/or conservatives amongst us moaning about it. I am especially surprised about the stance of Lord Carey and Reverend Welby, as those are the representatives of the Church of England, the religion as has preached liberalism and did the least to enforce church and religious discipline.

Prior to the gay marriage debate was the gay adoption debate, with the Catholic church shouting the loudest against.

Lets put it into context. If all those heterosexual people who produce the children would do an exemplary good job of looking after their offspring no adoption would be necessary. It is merely that ‘normal’ people produce children, they are either incapable or unwilling to care for.

The church had abandoned their flock generations ago when it became a matter of choice whether to be religious or not.

We have even heard a comment that because Boris Johnson produced a child with an unpaid volunteer whilst working with the Mayor of London, the fitness of the Mayor to do his job would be reflected upon under the circumstances of that extra-marital affair. Yet when gay people have sex during working relationships, they could not possibly produce a child doing so but that does not mean that they are better suited to do the work just because their affairs cannot become so evident as gay couples do not conceive.

As a society we have to look at values and what we want to achieve. At the moment laws are passed all over the ‘civilised’ world, trying to avoid disaster through casual sexual disease by introducing gay marriage. Of course the next worst disaster would be a spread of aids and other diseases because of frequent partner changes.

The statistics make grim reading in  that same sex people feature worst for wear for instance:

  • 60% of all drug abusers, that sought help were elder members of the lesbian, gay and trans-gender scene.
  • 57% 0f all new gonorrhoea cases and  81% of syphilis cases are among gay men.
  • HIV/Aids is prevalent among gay men.

Yet straight people do their utmost to tolerate if not encourage gay relationships. Yet homosexuals are not so happy if somebody wants to turn away from the habit and become straight, ads that direct such people to a charity that wants to help them were banned from TfL buses.  Yet it is possible in every other walk of life to turn a corner and get help doing so but gay people seem to be trapped in that situation.

Even in the USA there is a call to get more women involved into work just as in Japan. Even the UK follows the international trend for female employment.

It’s like this magic formula being used internationally that more homosexuality and more women into work makes less babies.

To bring this back to the equality issue, we have to ask ourselves why people always want to have sex and that it is this addiction that causes problems. We need to ensure people find other values in life rather than skin-contact.

Obviously it is a G8 strategy to promote those lifestyles. The people on top of governments are stupid and we need to stop voting for the same old idiots.

The Catholic church teaches that sexual contact is only used for wanting to reproduce. That is a good rule. Also people must first of all calculate exactly that they are in a position to care for the child(ren) made.

But what is happening is that caring about the results of physical contact has ceased and that either people use their children to make war or don’t care for them at all.

Make love not war is a stupid slogan.

It’s the principle that counts

One country, two religion is the over-simplified formula, the Daily Mail published today. They talked about church attendance for Church of England or Muslim services in local East London Mosques.

For me, there is a simple scientific explanation for varying church attendances. Those churches with the biggest principles, whether right or wrong, attract the most worshippers. Those churches who are very tolerant and understanding just do not attract people to come in.

What is of course missing in the Daily Mail article, is a picture of the Our Lady of  Assumption church on Sunday masses, they fill 3 churches full each weekend. But then again, the Catholic church holds strong beliefs, the Muslims hold strong beliefs but those Liberal churches do not.

I do not just mean strong religious beliefs but strong worldly beliefs that reflect directly from the scripture.

Beliefs are definitely churches’ business or mind your own business, mind your believers.

A good read

I was disappointed with both Hilary Mantel books that won the booker prize. I was looking for something good to read and thought I order them because it is kind of a good idea to read what the nation reads but when I found a lot of gore and vulgar sexual fantasy in the books I was put off from finishing them.

Then of course the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI happened just at the time when I re-engaged with Catholicism. This pope’s shock resignation puts a kind of new dialectic on the worldly and divine nature of the church. This was the first papal resignation since 600 years.

I find this immensely interesting and hope I am going to have a good read with some of Joseph Ratzinger’s books.

I think lately Catholicism has made immense progress here in Britain. Not only are successors to the British throne now allowed to marry Catholics but also numbers who attend the many C.o.E. churches in my area are dwindling whilst my local Catholic church has to lay on 3 services each weekend to satisfy the requirements of the many worshippers.

If the English monarch marries a Catholic and then the monarch itself becomes Catholic the Church of England will become obsolete and unnecessary. That would be good because I consider many C.o.E. churches a waste of space because the attendance numbers are so low that they would be better off being used by Catholics who would appreciate the buildings more.


The best church to be

Anyone who wishes to follow the true gospel of Christ and opposes the latest fashion statements of various churches, which want to appoint gay ministers and bishops is to join the Catholic church, who are very adamantly against homosexuality. The Catholic church here in London even stopped church services for gay people.

So for the Scottish Dominic Smart, joining the Catholic church could be an option. It can be daunting to do so, especially when one has been brought up in an Anglican environment like myself, but it is the only sensible option I think. Strength is in numbers and the Catholic church has a very powerful voice around the world and can give a lot of support.

I joined the Catholic church several years ago and then swayed to and fro between Anglican and Catholic because it is not easy to get it out of the system but in the end the purest and clearest form of Christianity is preached by the Catholic church.

People who want to go it alone can be in danger of turning into sectarianism and being part of a larger Catholic community will give help and support. The nearest Catholic church near Gilcomston South in Scotland is surely not too far away. I am certain they are only too pleased to lend support for the locals in question.

Catholic churches also constantly run courses for people wanting to convert and priests are generally very understanding and sympathetic. Our local Catholic church also has lay people helping and we have got a very big congregation compared to the few people who worship in local Church of England churches, though C.o.E. has gotten more buildings than the Catholic church, who have gotten only 1 large church.

It can’t do any harm to speak to a Catholic priest about the issues and how support can be obtained for a whole community of people who are all in one mind and one heart about the issues.

But strictly speaking Jesus allows anyone to preach his Gospel, though taking into account that some schools are set up by large churches and require attendance there, the question of where to prey is somewhat determined by this for people with children.

We have a number of Evangelical church groups in my local area but they have no back-up for education.

Breivik, the interim analysis

I don’t think I will bother reading Breivik’s thesis because of his action. But from a comment left on this earlier blog, where I link to his Manifesto, I can detect that Breivik talks a lot about how brutal some passages in the Quran are. If we look at the bible we can find similarly aggressive passages. But the comment reminds me of the Dutch MP Geert Wilders who was taken to court over racism in incitement of violence I belief. From this article we can take that he is anti-Islam and that brought him trouble. Yet Wilders only talks about his hatred and expresses his beliefs  and that got him into court.

The fact is that we are living in this perfect politically correct world and that nobody can just let out a remark. People of high public standing find themselves in the press because they uttered a private remark in their dressing rooms and often enough politicians say something in a long speech and one sentence is taken out of it and blown out of all proportions to convict that person publicly of saying the wrong thing, that is not politically correct.

In this context it is not surprising that individuals think they feel a need to express their views more violently than they would if they could discuss their views in private. It is simply not fashionable to have any right-wing views.

But then the action of Breivik is bad enough for me not to want to read his manifesto, but the discussion is ongoing its just that one simply cannot take part. What Breivik’s action has shown is that Western civilisation has got a problem with itself. It was a self-destructive action because if you hate Islam then you do not go around killing fellow members of your own race. Unfortunately the western world is too good in getting rid of itself. In Europe we saw wars waging between fellow countries. World War II saw the distraction of many white men, supposedly in defence of the superior Arian race. Yet Hitler himself was not even blonde and blue-eyed he just said the right thing at the right time and that took him on to the public admiration ladder. Germans at that time hated Jews, who controlled the economy and that talk of the wonderful blue-eyed superior race just turned them on because they suffered repression. Yet Hitler himself came from an Arabic background and he led the white, blonde, blue-eyed people into their death. It’s this blind admiration that now led to an immense amount of immigration. Now we want to show the world how tolerant we really are when before we were selective and tried to enslave the rest of the world in the Colonies.

It is not only that though it is generally that Western civilisation laid the foundation stone for its own demise. Whilst we developed technology and transport to visit foreign shores, we also allowed those former third world inhabitants to travel back to us and gave them the technology to now surpass us to the point that the USA lost their AAA credit rating. I suppose China and India will take their place. We are always in this do-gooder position where we think we have to bring salvation to those who are suppressed and just need this injection of western civilisation to get happy.

But that is completely the wrong approach. It is in my view simply because some Westerners could get rich quicker that we developed the multi-racial policies. It was not the Labour Party but it were industrialists and business leaders who developed that. They learned that if they opened businesses abroad they could make more money, they could sell their wares to other countries to the point that the economies in their own homelands died.

Unfortunately I think Breivik is not all that clever but that is not uncommon. It is sad that money in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. The greed of business magnates led to earth warming and now to the demise of western civilisation. Politicians are only ever the spokes persons of those business leaders because that is where they get most of their funding from. Even the unions are only mouthing off because they find their existence in doing the work that help the business magnates to make more money, the union members are the ones that manufacture the goods, that pollute our world.

Breivik just did damage to his own race, he makes propaganda for Islam rather than against it because in saying he hates Islam and killing Christians as a Christian is a type of cultural suicide. I think that should be discussed. We really need to allow more open discussion and not get to a point where anybody who is somebody needs to consult a lawyer before they even open their mouth.

Again it is only that businesses profit more from international relations that we are not allowed to make the odd Irish joke, put down somebody because they got red hair or are fat or other silly reasons. This does not produce more harmony, it does produce more underlying hate and subversives.

The recent Tottenham riots have shown how the increasingly violent management of the public, in the shooting of a father of four now again led to riots. This is also going to get worst in my view because we now get a stronger Territorial Army with guerilla type groups operating, which I think will lead to gang wars and more violence on our streets. What we as a civilisation have to do is to define ourselves and think whether we want to develop as a Christian civilisation and if we do, we will have to discriminate against those who are not Christian or stop pretending that we are a Civilisation because we do not longer have grounds to exist if we do not wish to be a Christian civilisation.

We simply do not help ourselves to kill each other in any case. So from that point of view Breivik’s action was cowardly and merely the activity of a frustrated individual who killed his fellow citizens. I think a trial will help to discuss the point of our civilisation and to show that we simply cannot go around and kill each other just to show that we hate somebody else.  I think that Al Qaeda could not have done a better action and that Breivik played into their hands and therefore has surrendered his claim to being a Christian Conservative.  His action is that of a traitor on his own civilisation and heritage just as Wikileaks does a similar activity on the publication front.

I do not agree that the war in Afghanistan can do us any good, the Islamic world will not be disturbed by it and all we do is send many fine young men into their deaths and waste their lives. However it is unforgivable to betray them like it is done by Wikileaks and it weakens the defences of those troops even more. Unfortunately there are many white people out there now who are frustrated, maybe simply sexually and turn on their own race to let out their frustrations. But this is not a game any longer and I think political and business leaders should re-think international strategies to save their own heritage. But maybe the Wikileaks intelligence helped the Taliban to kill those American Elite troops en mass, which is a sad thing. Assange is a mere traitor and does help the Taliban, that is the simplest explanation. Julian Assange started his publication but it went against his own people.

We as Christian civilisation should stop to try to go out into the world and think we can just change the ways of other cultures. We are losing our own ground and destroy ourselves in the process as a culture. We started all those useless wars Vietnam was just one example but now at least with the Afghan war some sense is seen and there is a withdrawal on the horizon.  I think we should change strategies to help re-establish a common dialectic instead of having to support the harsh discipline of todays politics. There is little discussion possible on the ground, several political parties have lamented that and this is causing the downfall of our democracy if no changes are made. I do agree if things go on as they do we’ll end up with an Islamic world that will discriminate against Christians but the destruction of our current civilisation is not going to help prevent this. I think it is a matter of public discussion to ask questions why commercial developments favour a wider spread and Islamization of the world

Traditionally right-wingers are against Jews but that classic grudge is not going to help our Christian civilisation to prosper as we have seen that Hitler’s tactics simply helped to destroy Christianity and opened up the way for internationalization of commerce. If you are anti-jew today, you are automatically pro-palestine, but is that a good development, no it isn’t. We have to look who today’s world benefits the most and that information is simply not published and if Wikileaks wants to benefit western civilisation then they should rather disclose financial information than miliary secrets.

We mustn’t forget that Arabian business have huge resources and they can pay for many things to further the advance of Islam and that often enough white people are used to help their cause. Today’s western emancipation is often enough a cause for white men to do silly things simply because they cannot find sexual fulfilment and feel unhappy over this. I think this is the most single reason for men to abandon their own social circles and turn violent. Let’s face it today’s attempts to make men and women the same in those anti-discrimination laws is more than stupid and so far removed from reality that it just is laughable. Women with children are supposed to work to root out single parenthood but it will simply only strengthen those who are married and allow their wives to have many children, which is now mainly the Muslims who live that way.

If I look around me I see hundreds of Muslim men go to local Mosques every day whilst their women are at home and have babies or look after them whilst single mothers with only one child are told to find themselves a job. The only stop that is put to families having lots and lots of children is the ceiling on benefits. There is an attempt to stop forced marriage but then the European Human Rights Act helps to counteract this. There are too many do-good regulations, which all contradict each other and lead to unhappiness. Yes, there are too many rules, which are too complicated and can be exploited for the wrong reasons.

Our western communities are destabilised with European Union rules that give free movement for workers, which means we will soon just live out of suitcases, live in caravans or travel around to look for jobs. Unfortunately the unions have not helped in that respect because the Unions help the employers to make profits basically for lower and lower wages. It would have been unthinkable only 30 years ago that a worker would have worked evenings or weekends for the same wage. Now you have to work for the minimum wage and agree to work Sundays, evenings and public holidays for the same rate just to get the job. I think that Unions and the Labour Party have betrayed us. It doesn’t help to just ask for a minimum wage or a living wage and work all hours for the same rate of pay.

Our families are being destroyed by this strategy that aims to make men and women the same and forgets about traditional family structures and Christian holidays and our traditional way of life. It helps to settle Islam into our nation if we surrender our Christian holidays to have shops open at all hours and so the workers have to work all hours for the same pay, for less permanent contracts and for less housing benefits and less secure tenancies. It only helps business owners, share holders and the profits of individuals and it helps Islam to settle around the world.

So if anybody doesn’t like the Quran for its values and favours Christianity, they should ask the share-holders and business owners what they do to help Christianity and Christian communities to prosper. Today’s employment strategies are very much like the Zwangsarbeit that Hitler introduced in Germany as we are forced to work for free or take on any job or loose our benefits. Political parties are funded by big money and it is the businesses who have that money or those who earn it from working and so if we want to fight that degradation we have to look on how we can fight this Zwangsarbeit strategies to settle in and not go around shooting young party members of any party.

The work ethic itself is very questionable because many products that are produced today are damaging to health and destroy the environment. We must always think of children first and each individual mother has a duty to do so. From that point of view Breivik is an idiot who hasn’t got a clue, he is just a brat who gotten hold of some material and weapons and transformed himself into one of those violent games figures and caused unnecessary death to innocent young lives and to other members of the community. Murder is never acceptable in my view. Yet in today’s world it has become accepted that left-wing killings were good. We saw the Bolschewiks kill the Tsar, we saw the French revolution kill aristocrats.

One good development after World War II was the benefit society we live in today just that we Western nations started to develop the equal opportunities alongside it whilst other cultures kept on discriminating against those who did not fit in with leading beliefs. We separated the church from the state and now have a mixed culture that is grinding itself to a halt. I think we should just stop trying to be do-gooder as we will not change the world in a decade.

It is true that increasing immigration will further dilute Christian society but killing young Labour Party members is hardly going to make any difference whatsoever, the opposite is the case it helps to strengthen Islam more because there are less Christians to discuss the matter. It is today’s Liberalism and laws that only help profiteering, which is something that is condemned in the bible.

Of course it is often frustrated young Christian men who could not cope with either their emotions or rejected dreams that often turned to crime and ended up in the rapidly filling prisons whilst other immigrants who live to strict Islamic codes kept on finding that personal fulfillment simply because they got the woman at home and at least their sex lives are guaranteed every day. But that problem is caused by our do good, equal opportunities society that allows some to imprison women in their homes and live to strict Islamic laws whilst Christians had nowhere to turn to, to find satisfaction.

Money well spent

That £1.85 Million was spent by a body concerned with International development on the visit by the Pope to the UK in September 2010, was a good decision. After all, the Catholic church has  one of the most developed international aid programs in the world. Catholic missionaries work tirelessly and often in great personal danger in the most gruesome and dangerous parts of the world, delivering not only Catholic Christendom but also an improvement of lifestyles., see CAFOD website.

Quite rightly said in this article, that giving money to war torn countries, results in the abuse of the funds, which often never reach those in need. 

Catholics in the UK come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and to allow the Pope to visit that large congregation can only benefit the UK and its overseas operations as well.

It is amazing that this spending received critical reviews by Labour, whose former Prime Minister Tony Blair, did not dare to convert to Catholicism whilst he was incumbent. I find it slightly disturbing that Labour now criticises spending on the Pope visit. Is this the first Labour reaction to the Catholic Faith since the somewhat Jewish new leader Miliband took hold of the party?

A definition of Freedom

One of THE best definitions of the term freedom was in last week’s Assumptionist newsletter, available from Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church here in Bethnal Green. There, under the heading of Catholic Social Teaching, the philosophy of Freedom is explained as: ‘One of the most important values that we all cherish is ‘freedom.; We could ask ourselves if it is freedom for something or freedom from something. In fact both traditions mark our society. Freedom for something calls for the interior strength to do the right thing. The artist is not less free because he is constrained by the limitations of his medium, whether paint or stone; in fact the limitations of his medium are the very conditions that permit him to be an artist. Freedom from oppression and so on necessarily involves others. It presumes some sort of organised control or law making, which protects individuals and society from abuse in what ever form’.

This very well formulated general definition applies to all forms of freedom and this sits very well with the Human Rights Act too.

Labour = Communism?

That is the question because what does it signal to us that Ed Miliband openly distances himself from God?  Is this a significant development for the Labour Party that now their leader openly attests his Atheism?

I think it is significant that the new Labour leader is not a Christian or does not believe in any God. Normally that is the trait of Communists, who also do not believe in any Gods but themselves.

At least Gordon Brown, whose father is/was a Church of England Reverend and Tony Blair, who recently converted to Catholicism because his wife also is a devoted Catholic, both of those former New Labour leaders were traditional in the  religious sense but now we see the new breed of Labour leader who do no longer want to be New Labour but want to renew Labour itself.

That is of course very significant in the sense that of course that automatically reduces the support the Labour Party will have among the establishment. The churches, have no reason to support a non religious political party, neither will the monarch, who is head of the Church of England. That of course implies that Labour will want to rely on the more established left sources, the ones of the Communist and non-religious kind.  British politics have now entered a new era and those policies have become a whole new ball game. But of course, it has recently been in the public discussion also many right-wing fascists do not believe in God and the sanctity of life religion brings with it.

Quite obviously Ed Miliband will not only upset traditional Christians but also many other members of various religions and that includes the large number of Muslims. Of course other religious may welcome the weakening of Christianity as to enable their own religion to become more powerful but in the end all religions depend on a believe in God and no devout follower of a religion will want a political leader that is an Atheist, at least that is my impression.

Does history learn from mistakes

I was astounded to read this morning the Pope’s remarks about Nazism being anti-religious and being a regular church goer myself, have been through that thought pattern of a connection between Fascism and non religious attitude.

It is a matter of fact that Nazis were not religious and most fascists throughout the world also hate religion. I can’t see any libel in that. Also a recent high-court judgment declared that religious comments cannot be dealt with under current libel laws and in any case would have thought that Humanists would come forward with a more qualitative argument than simply crying libel.

It is a discussion that goes through the media since a long time, that people want to know what makes a fascist. Papers have been written, showing that Hitler was terrified of boiling lobsters and was a vegetarian and the strain of ideology that prefers animals to humans has also been explored.

It is a brave piece of thought to throw into the discussion by the Pope. I am only sorry I could not make the time to see him on his historic visit to Britain. Britain of course encourages all religions within the UK because it is thought that any God is better than no God. I copy a papal quote from the BBC site:

“As we reflect on the sobering lessons of atheist extremism of the 20th century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus a reductive vision of a person and his destiny.”

Of course the question of religion and Nazism has a political direction to it but that cannot be avoided.  I want Atheists to proof if they know of any  fascists that were religious. For example all inhuman world leaders we know today were not religious. The  Stalinists, the Nazis hated religion and there is a long list of murderous political leaders that hated religion and exterminated man, human groups that had common religious beliefs and were discriminated against.

Interestingly Britain is a save haven for the very Marxists the Pope complains about. The British courts fall over themselves to defend people of Marxist views and other left-wing ideologists and Christian religion is in decline in the UK today. I wonder whether it is consoling to the Pope that Islam is on the rise in the UK, that is a religion. Yet the fact that the Pope has decided at this time to embrace all religions as better than none shows the dire dilemma humanity has arrived at, in that we are as a human race on the brink of abandoning religion as a form of human kindness and replace it with other values that are not tested as successful social models.

It is quite astonishing that the Queen toys so readily with Marxism and defends the rights of left-wing radicals for free speech within her Kingdom, the very people that wish to dispose of the monarchy in principle. I would even go as far as to say that UK law could be less tolerant towards left-wing expressions if they wanted to but have chosen instead to embrace the power of the Unions and the Marxist ideology to go the path of least controversy in the short term. But in the long term it will have an effect on religious development as well as reduce the power of the monarchy.
