HIS NAME IS BONE, YEAH REALLY, AND RELIGION “BREACHES HIS RIGHTS”

It’s disingenuous jerks like this that give a bad name to all non believers.
It’s as true in the USA as it is here, where this story takes place.

Why oh why should anyone like this be pandered to?
City councils meetings begin with a prayer.  I’d be willing to bet that many of them who bow their heads may not believe any more then this one blowhard.  But it’s convention. It’s tradition. And it still is a Christian country.  Well, until the muzzies outbirth the unbelievers in islam. And that won’t be long at the rate they breed.
But forget that for the moment please. Hard as it is.

This guy figures his rights are being violated and he’s made to feel an outsider because of a starting prayer at the council meetings.  I think he has lost the plot.
Of course we’re outsiders.  By our own choice. So what makes him think he has a right to decide that prayers shouldn’t be said.  How hard would be to simply not say a prayer and just politely wait till the council is finished?  Or, why not wait outside until the prayer is finished if it’s so horribly offensive?

I do not believe people like him or the agencies that support his view and give him support, are really as “offended” as they claim to be.  But the civil rights industry, which has become the enforcement arm of the politically correct left, which is now a competing religion itself, must find strife or create strife wherever they can.  And if you’re gonna pick a fight with a group, I guess they figure correctly, always pick on a soft target. 

Orgs. like the Natl. Secular Society make it appear they speak for all atheists or people who only have some doubts.  They claim that prayers said in a hall where there are ppl of other religions, or non believers, are made to feel uncomfortable and excluded.
BS!  That’s something brand new in the last dozen years and they’ve managed to glom on to a few idiots who suddenly find for the very first time, that they are also offended.

This is totally serious stuff and it’s being reported that both sides on the issue are getting lawered up.  I’ve never been one to warn about the falling sky but this case could have some serious ramifications if this loser manages to win his case.
It could conceivably lead to the abolition of the Coronation Oath, as reported by the Telegraph’s Religious Affairs Editor, Martin Beckford.

I guess I’m really an outsider on two counts then because; never at any time did I ever feel all those terrible things that the Secular Society says I felt.  Not even once.
So either they are full of it, lying , or I’ve been deaf, dumb and blind for 74 years.

For me personally, and I stress I speak not for BMEWS or any of the folks who comment here.  This has been a Christian country for over a thousand years.  There have been divisions and sometimes bloody ones among Christians.  Some pretty bad things were done by some pretty bad people over time, using religion as their excuse to bring others to heel.  The past doings both good and evil have no relation to what most Western European nations are in fact. They are Christian.  Why is that so hard to accept?  Why should that and prayers said by the mostly faithful cause unbelievers to feel “excluded” and “uncomfortable?”

Frankly and finally, I don’t think all that many non believers care about this. I think the majority, like people of faith, simply want to get on with their lives and avoid conflict where possible.  But sadly, it only takes one, with one single-minded agenda, to make enough noise and bother and create the impression that there are thousands who support their view.
That is one thing the left is very, very accomplished at.  I’d say they were masters of the art.  Shame that.


March of the PC brigade: Atheists in court battle to ban town hall prayers

Former councillor said he was ‘disadvantaged and embarrassed’

By STEVE DOUGHTY

An atheist campaign to ban the historic practice of saying prayers at council meetings yesterday found its way to the High Court.
Former councillor Clive Bone, backed by an anti-religious campaign group, claims the tradition breaches his human right to freedom of belief.
Mr Bone said he was ‘disadvantaged and embarrassed’ when Christian prayers were said in the council chamber.
Backed by the National Secular Society, Mr Bone wants prayers to be ruled out of the formal agenda of any local authority meetings.
His case reached the High Court yesterday at the culmination of a three-year campaign.
Success could open the way for a drive to force Parliament to abandon saying prayers as part of Commons and Lords business.
The NSS has based its legal challenge on the claim that Mr Bone, as an atheist, should not be subjected to religious ritual, and that to do so breaks his right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
However it was revealed yesterday that he is no longer a councillor in Bideford in Devon. Town clerk Heather Blackburn confirmed: ‘Mr Bone did not stand for re-election in May 2011.’
The Society said yesterday: ‘The NSS is taking Bideford Town Council to court after receiving a complaint from one of its councillors, Clive Bone, that he was disadvantaged and embarrassed as a non-believer by the saying of prayers as part of council business.

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

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.
