christians ignored by mistake by the eu, they were left out of, oh hell. you guys can all read.

So with Christmas only days away .....

What perfect timing. Jeesh.

Words fail.


EU diary for Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims ignores Christians

The European Commission has brought out more than 3 million copies of a school diary that includes festivities of Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims and Jews but contains no reference to Christmas, angering the Christian community.

More than 330,000 copies of the diaries, costing 4.7 million pounds to produce and are accompanied by 51 pages of information about the EU, have been delivered to British schools as a Christmas gift to pupils from the commission, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph.

But Christians have been angered because the diary section for December 25 (Christmas) is blank and the bottom of the page bears the message: “A true friend is someone who shares your concerns and will double your joy.”

The diary marks Hindu, Sikh, Jewish, Islamic and Chinese festivities as well as Europe day and other key EU anniversaries. But there are no Christian festivals marked, even though Christianity is Europe’s majority religion.

Johanna Touzel, of the Catholic Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community, said the absence of Christian festivals was “astonishing”. “Christmas and Easter are important feasts for hundreds of millions of Christians and Europeans,” she said.

A Commission spokesman said the oversight was a “blunder”. He said future editions might omit all references to religious festivals.

BUDDHIST PRISONER SUES OVER MEAT.  just more proof how screwed up things are.

I caught this short blurb and have the need to share. As always.  Possibly my only post for today.

The European Court of Human Rights has ordered the Polish prison service to pay a Buddhist prisoner $3,500 in compensation for failing to provide him with vegetarian meals.
In its ruling, the Strasbourg based court said that by serving meat with his meals, the prison service had violated the religious freedom of Janusz Jakobski, a convicted rapist.
The prison service says that Jakobski, a convert, had previously claimed to be a devout Roman Catholic who fought to have a cross in his cell.

Does anyone besides my brilliant self get the feeling this guy is playing the system?
I mean, it isn’t out in the open obvious, is it? One would have to be a rocket scientist like me to pick up on that cleverly hidden fact.

Hey, the guy is a rapist. Period. He shouldn’t have any rights whatever. And by the way, there was an article recently, no more then a line or two actually so not even an article, wherein it claimed that in some interviews done with prisoners on the subject of rights, the inmates are laughing themselves silly at what they can get away with and how easy it is to get officialdom to “jump through human rights hoops.”

So lets hear it for the European court and the marvelous systems that dispense hilarity for criminals everywhere, and shed a tear for ‘justice’ which apparently has gotten lost in the shuffle.

the popes visit to Britain and a few thoughts

Interesting happenings in the UK this week.  The pope’s visit.  Yawn for some and I don’t guess I care either. But he did have messages I could agree with and I’m not religious.  On the other hand, there are some things I can’t understand. The church we are told is paying some £2 million, and the other 10 million is on the back of the taxpayer.  Well, that means peoples of all other religions too. It even means non believers have to pay for the visit.  Thing is, not all folks who claim membership in the church, are all that interested either.  I think they’re called lapsed Catholics. But everybody has to pay anyway.  Why?

Get this.  Everywhere people turn they are being told belts must be tightened.  The present govt. says the country has been left in such serious and bad debt, that deep cuts are in order.  They want to cut 40,000 policemen for example.  Even, gasp, some civil servants.  Everything across the board. Cut,cut,cut.
So naturally, some of the unions are warning of strike action. One union head says his union will, “cripple Britain.” And yes, he is far left. They don’t care.
Well, here we are facing some tough times it is predicted, but they happen to have 10 million they can spend to host the pope for a few days. The church owns art worth 100 times that. Not to mention property.  Ah ha I have it.  That’s why they can afford all that stuff.  The poor boxes.  Ya think?

The dilemma for the men in charge of the Pope’s security is how to protect him – and let him get close to his flock.

In 1981, the vulnerability of the pontiff was brought into sharp relief, when the Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Agca shot and wounded John Paul II as he mingled with the faithful in St Peter’s Square, in Rome.

And although that assassination attempt led to an increase in security, if the Pope is to remain a public figure it can never be watertight.

Critics – especially militant secularists – have criticised the £3.3million cost of security for his UK visit. But yesterday’s alleged plot was a reminder of why it is needed.

POPE SECURITY

This photo is larger at the link and way,way bigger in the hard copy. What caught my interest was the caption for the box at the bottom center.
It says ... Italian police and Swiss Guard normally carry Sig Sauer P75 automatic pistols but banned from carrying them here.

Say what?  How come?  The paper didn’t say.  Surely they can’t be unarmed. Can they? Or was it just that particular weapon that was banned?
Any ideas?

Now I don’t know about you but I always liked Christmas.  Mostly when young of course.  But still, there is something about that period that I have always found enjoyable.  And I like Christmas Carols (but not in Oct.).  So I was happy to read that the pope made some comments about that.

Pope’s battle to save Christmas: Don’t let atheists crush your traditions, Benedict tells Britain

By Steve Doughty

* Easter and Christmas should not be discouraged by fear of offending others
* Christians in public roles should be allowed to act according to conscience
* Lack of ethical foundation resulted in financial crisis, he tells politicians


The Pope issued a clarion call to defend Christianity last night, saying Christmas was at risk of being struck from the calendar.

In a strongly worded speech delivered in Parliament, Benedict XVI bluntly told politicians not to ‘silence’ religion and discourage public celebration of its most important festivals.

And in a thinly veiled attack on controversial equality legislation, he said laws which forced Christians to act against their consciences were wrong.

‘There are those who would advocate that the voice of religion be silenced, or at least relegated to the purely private sphere,’ he told senior politicians and public figures.

POPE COMMENTS AND PIX

I think he’s quite right on the issue offending others.  Western culture has gotten along well (till recent times and left wing liberals and apologists for the rop)
telling us a cross on a public building or a nativity scene might offend a few non believers.  How about the many who are not offended? Nobody has ever been made the worse because they heard a Carol in public.

He is also very,very correct on the issue of conscience.  The church has a philosophy on homosexuality. Many do not agree with their stance. But to force a Catholic adoption agency under force of law to place a child with a same sex couple is I believe, unreasonable.  The agencies will of course close. And just who does that serve?  Merely the easily offended and professional “activists.”

However, he may be mistaken to think it’s only atheists who want to undo things. No.  It’s those silly damn politically correct bureaucrats who spend too much time thinking of all the different ways that different people can possibly become offended.  It’s the very same kind of thinking that makes hurting someone’s feelings a punishable offense under law. And they are not all non believers. Many are screwballs who believe. Like Harriet Harperson. (Harman)

burning the koran might not actually be the best idea, but not for pc reasons …

The American church, if you want to call it that, has I am to understand, only 50 members. Is that a church or a cult?
Whatever, I see no point to burning the koran.  Whats it do for our side?  Naturally, half the world will see it as an American thing and blow it out of all proportion.
Then the president will have to go on TV and apologize.

The only reason I’d be for it to be truthful, would be to get up the noses and annoy the folks who don’t like us anyway and won’t no matter what we do.
Downside of course is that it just gives our enemies grist for their mill.  Not so sure I like that idea.
How do you feel about it?

Vatican condemns Koran burning

Irish Times

The Vatican added to world condemnation of plans by a Florida church to commemorate the September 11th attacks on the United States by burning a Koran, calling it an “outrageous” act.

The Vatican added to world condemnation of plans by a Florida church to commemorate the September 11th attacks on the United States by burning a Koran, calling it an “outrageous” act.

Leaders ranging from US secretary of state Hillary Clinton to the head of the Islamic Society of North America and the top US commander in Afghanistan have denounced plans by the pastor of a tiny Florida church to burn a copy of the Koran.

In a statement today the Vatican said it had heard with great concern of the planned commemoration of the attacks in 2001 which killed 2,752 people.

“These deplorable acts of violence, in fact, cannot be counteracted by an outrageous and grave gesture against a book considered sacred by a religious community,” it said.

“Each religion, with its respective sacred books, places of worship and symbols, has the right to respect and protection.”

Pastor Terry Jones, who heads a congregation of 50 at the Dove World Outreach Centre in Gainesville, Florida, says he scheduled the Koran-burning on the anniversary of the 2001 atrocities to stop what he sees as the encroachment of Sharia in the US and because “we must send a clear message to the radical element of Islam. We will no longer be controlled and dominated by their fears and threats.”

The Obama’s administration made clear that it deplored the planned event, which State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley described as “un-American.”

“I am heartened by the clear and unequivocal condemnation of this disrespectful, disgraceful act that has come from American religious leaders of all faiths,” US secretary of state Hillary Clinton told American Muslims at the State Department last night as she hosted an Iftar, the meal at which Muslims break their daily fast during the month of Ramadan.

US attorney general Eric Holder reportedly called the planned Florida event “idiotic” during a closed-door meeting with a small group of religious leaders.

General David Petraeus, the head of US and Nato forces in Afghanistan, said the burning could “endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort” to stabilise the Afghan situation.

“It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems, not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community,” Gen Petraeus said.

I kinda think I’d want to pay more attention to the general. He’s in a position to know what he’s talking about.

Daffy Gaddifi visits Italy, tells folks all Europe needs to become muslim. Give em time. They might

image

No question about it, the world’s a mad,mad place and white folks seem to be losin’ it. What is it with this?

Gaddafi is such a disgusting looking character.  If he weren’t a head of state he could easily pass for a homeless person living under a bridge in any country.

But he has loads of ready cash and can hire his own audience.  And the world MUST and DOES treat with the guy as if he’s just plain folks. Right. I know.
It’s called diplomacy.  I’m quite a bit short on that.  Lucky I can spell the word without using spell check. 

Can you imagine any western head of state going to a muzzie country and simply suggesting to them that they may wanna try some other religion? Oh Boy.


Italians attack Muammar Gaddafi over Islam comments

Italians have reacted with indignation after Muammar Gaddafi lectured 200 young actresses and models on the superiority of Islam, a day after saying that Europeans should all become Muslim.

By Nick Squires in Rome

Silvio Berlusconi’s increasingly close relationship with Col Gaddafi is becoming a source of embarrassment for the Italian prime minister, according to opposition MPs and even members of the government.

On Monday, the Libyan leader recruited the women through a modelling agency to join him and Mr Berlusconi, in viewing a photography exhibition at a Rome cultural institute which traced historical links between the two countries.

Telling them that Islam was the “ultimate religion”, Gaddafi insisted that “if you want to believe in a single faith then it must be that of Mohammed,” according to one of the women who sat through the lecture.

Afterwards the two leaders were due to attend a cavalry school to watch a display of riding involving 30 thoroughbred Berber horses imported specially from Libya, followed by a state dinner.

On Sunday night, during an encounter with 500 young women hired by the same agency, Col Gaddafi handed out copies of the Koran and told them that Europe should convert to Islam.

“If I went to Tripoli to demand that Libyans convert to Christianity, what are the odds that I would return in one piece?” said Rocco Buttiglione, the president of a centre-Right Catholic party, the UDC.

Italy was becoming a “Disneyland”-style theme park for Gaddafi’s “senile vanities”, said Fare Futuro, a political foundation linked to Gianfranco Fini, a senior government power broker with whom Mr Berlusconi recently had a dramatic falling out.

Rosy Bindi, an MP from the main opposition party, said that the spectacle of hundreds of Italian women being bussed in at Col Gaddafi’s whim was a “humiliating violation” of their dignity.

PAT CONDELL ON GROUND ZERO

I’m not sure how many of you have seen this.  I don’t think it’s been posted at BMEWS and it’s two months old.  But the subject is very current.

I have nothing to add because this guy says it all.  And if not all, then almost all.

Shamelessly stolen from Vilmar

I was thinking as I watched this: Christians are really tolerant. I’m Christian, and I was laughing at this video. Despite the fact that this guy is part of Richard Dawkins network. I’m perfectly able to laugh at myself and my beliefs.

Now, tell me, where are the Muslim comedians lampooning Mohammed? Don’t see/hear any do you? That’s because there’s nothing funny about murder and pedophilia. Mohammed engaged in both.

Islam is not a religion. It’s a fascist political movement.

Today is Easter Sunday

Just a reminder of why we celebrate Easter.

I felt the need to shed the foulness that is Sen. Harry Reid, who claims to be LDS.

12 Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written.  - Ether 2:12

“Yea, and Sen. Harry Reid did lead them carefully down to bondage and Hell.” - Book of Christopher

Anyway, Happy Easter.

Please spend a moment or two with your families and friends on the reason Easter is celebrated.

A reminder for Senator Harry Reid (D-Mormon-Nevada)

For those who don’t know, probably most of you, Ezra Taft Benson was Secretary of Agriculture for both of Eisenhower’s terms. At the time he was also one of the Quorum of the Twelve in the LDS church. Later, he became the 13th President of the LDS Church.

This means that Ezra Taft Benson is considered a prophet by the LDS. Harry Reid was around then. That means he sustained Ezra Taft Benson as a ‘prophet, seer, and revelator’ for the Church, and indeed, the world.

Senator Reid is LDS. He is an ordained Elder, maybe even a High Priest. He also has a Temple recommend. He should be excommunicated. I cannot find an instance when, as Senate Majority Leader, he has not lied outright. When ordained to the Melchizedek Priesthood, you take a vow to never ‘bear false witness’, ie, lie. Senator Reid lies every time his mouth opens.

Senator Reid, you are a liar. You are an apostate. You are no better than the Kingmen in the Book of Mormon. I call you to repentance. Failing that, I call for your excommunication.

I should note that Ezra Taft Benson is one of my favorite Church leaders. He wrote an interesting book titled ‘This Nation Shall Endure”.

Endure. Yeah, that’s a polite way of putting the hell Senator Reid is trying to foist on us.

Africa Sucks, Part 4261

I really don’t want to run this story. Not only is it awful, it’s awfully repetitive. How many times have we seen essentially the same thing happen? What is it with the people on this continent? Tribalism? In the modern world? It’s hard to accept that any one person could be this brutal, much less a whole village or tribe full. Or several tribes full.

And yet ... here we go again.



500 murdered in one night



Nigeria’s security forces have been put on high alert after a new burst of sectarian violence left over 500 people dead, most of them women and children hacked to death by machete wielding gangs.

The attack happened before dawn on Sunday morning when gangs of men descended on several mainly Christian villages near the central city of Jos, firing guns as they approached. Witnesses of the attack, which centred on the village of Dogo-Nahawa, described how victims were caught in animal traps and fishing nets as they tried to flee their attackers.

A resident of Dogo-Nahawa said that the attackers had fired guns as they entered the village, to lure their victims out of their houses. “The shooting was just meant to bring people from their houses and then when people came out they started cutting them with machetes,” said Peter Gyang, who lost his wife and two children .

Dan Manjang, a state government advisor, confirmed that 500 people had been killed. “We have been able to make 95 arrests but at the same time over 500 people have been killed in this heinous act ... by Fulani herdsmen,” Mr Manjang said in a telephone interview.

An aid worker with the Christian charity Stefanus Foundation, Mark Lipdo, told the BBC he went to the villages of Zot and Dogo-Nahawa after daylight on Sunday and recorded the names of 77 victims. He said that there were at least two dozen more bodies. “We saw mainly those who are helpless, like small children and then the older men, who cannot run, these were the ones that were slaughtered,” he said, adding that Zot had been almost wiped out.

An unnamed government official said that over 100 people had been killed, mostly women and children. ”Some of the children are less than one year old,” he added.

But analysts said that the attack seemed to be in reprisal for the violent clashes in Jos between Christians and Muslims in January, which claimed the lives of at least 300 people and displaced thousands of others.

...

This central region of Nigeria had been a regular ethnic and religious flashpoint.  [ no kidding. I’d call it more of an ongoing fireball. ]

...

In November 2008, the federal government sent in the troops after Christians and Muslims fought each other using firearms and machetes in clashes that followed a contested election in Jos.

Official figures put the death toll [ for that fight then ] at 200, but rights groups Human Rights Watch said it was more than 700.

Lovely place. Lovely locals. Charming culture. Remind me to visit ... on the 12th of NEVER.  At least 1000 dead in 3 major incidents in just 16 moths. And who knows how many more died in minor skirmishes, random individual murders, and mysterious disappearances.

Muslims vs. Christians? Or is it that one tribal group is one faith, and their enemy tribal group is another faith, and both tribes just continue to murder in the most heinous ways possible. Keep the vendetta going forever. Because that’s their way, and they’ll never change.

The killings add to the tally of thousands who have already perished in Africa’s most populous country in the last decade due to religious and political frictions. Rioting in September 2001 killed more than 1,000 people. Muslim-Christian battles killed up to 700 people in 2004. More than 300 residents died during a similar uprising in 2008.

“In the last decade”? Please. It never stops. It’s forever. Anybody old enough to remember the genocide in Biafra? That happened when I was a kid. Guess where Biafra is? (or was?) In Nigeria. 1967. 100,000 dead in battle, and 2 million dead by torture, reprisals, and starvation. At the hands of the Fulani. It can’t just be “blood for oil”.

How Do You Say “Kangaroo Court” in Dutch?

We’ve covered this outspoken critic of islam before but at the moment, things not going that well for our side.  Seems the very PC Dutch ar quite happy to gag one of their own ELECTED politicians and give their country away to the islamists.  If that’s really the case, what the heck did they fight the Germans for?
Nothing I have read on the subject and I confess I haven’t read everything, indicates that the Dutch are very happy with events there. Unfortunately for them, their country is in the hands of the left.  They are concerned about immigration and they are worried about militant islam. In fact, many are just plain bothered about islam period, militant or not.  Some have “quietly” said it has no place in their culture. I think the Dutch who said that have already moved out.

So anyway ... Geert Wilders is on trial.  More like the Inquisition minus the burning then a trial. But you guys MUST read this to get a feel for how scary this actually is.  Especially from muslim authorities. 

H/T TUNDRA TABLOID
The Amsterdam District Court apparently doesn’t want to hear the truth about Islam. Nor is it interested to hear the opinion of top class legal experts in the field of freedom of expression. In one swift move, the Court brushed aside fifteen of the eighteen expert-witnesses the defence had requested to be summoned.

Only Hans Jansen, Simon Admiraal and Wafa Sultan were allowed to be heard as expert-witnesses. Their testimony will be heard in a session behind closed doors. Apparently the truth about Islam must remain a secret.

Geert Wilders: “This Court is not interested in the truth. This Court doesn’t want me to have a fair trial. I can’t have any respect for this. This Court would not be out of place in a dictatorship”.
The Court also brushed aside the preliminary objections concerning its jurisdiction and the admissibility of the Public Prosecutor.

Nevertheless, Geert Wilders remains extremely motivated to seek justice: “I’m still counting on an acquittal”.

TUNDRA TABLOID

THERE IS THIS FROM THE GATES OF VIENNA BLOG AND I ENCOURAGE ALL WHO HAVEN’T READ IT TO GO OVER THERE AND DO SO.
It isn’t a short read.

It’s obvious that the Dutch government wants Geert Wilders out of the way, and doesn’t much care how it happens.

In bygone days the Queen might have murmured to herself, “Who will rid me of this troublesome blond?” And then, to please his monarch, some eager courtier would have dispatched Mr. Wilders to meet his maker.

But today’s tactics have to be different. First the government demonizes the head of the PVV, eroding his official legitimacy and making it seem as if he almost deserves a violent end. Then it puts him on trial on trumped-up charges, and declines to provide the same courtroom security for a member of parliament that it gives to Islamic terrorists.

How Do You Say “Kangaroo Court” in Dutch?

International Free Press Society 4 February 2010
By Diana West

INTL. FREE PRESS

Even if you have never been involved in a criminal prosecution wherein your very freedom is at risk, I want you to now imagine that you and your attorney have prepared a defense that includes a list of witnesses that will provide a mountain of exculpatory evidence.  Then, imagine that the Court summarily and arbitrarily decides that it will not listen to nearly ninety percent of your case.

“This court is apparently not interested in the truth.” Wilders told De Telegraaph (translations from Gates of Vienna). “I cannot conclude anything but that the court does not award me a fair trial.”

“I have no respect for this,” Wilders added. He pointed out that in a typical criminal case there are often dozens of witnesses heard.

But this is not a typical trial. This is a rigged game, a fixed fight, a show trial that is premised not on Dutch law but on Islamic law. Indeed, the trial of Geert Wilders is a test case for sharia in the Netherlands, the grafting onto a free Western country the repressive cage of Islamic rule.

Discussing Muslim progress against “Islamophobia” at the 35th meeting of foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) in Kampala, Uganda in 2008, Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu made the following statement:

In confronting the Danish cartoons and the Dutch film “Fitna”, we sent a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed. As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues. They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.

One reading doesn’t convey the chilling import of these words.

As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues.

Yes, and to the craven point where “the official West and its public opinion” are paralyzed and silenced by these same “sensitivities.”

They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.

When the OIC speaks about “freedom of expression,” it means freedom of expression as governed by the laws of Islam — sharia. When the OIC says we in the West have “started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility,” it means we in the West have started to regard expression from the perspective of sharia — from the perspective of the totalitarian Islamic system.

So here’s some unwashed creep with a name nobody outside his own country can pronounce ( Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu), and he’s telling the west how things are gonna be.  And so far, a lot in the west seems to be caving in.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
