Britain Ruled by Political Correctness

Pages: 1 2

In London, social workers have been accused of “misguided political correctness” after they considered sending a boy in their care to the Democratic Republic of Congo for an exorcism. Officials at Islington Council in north London considered sending the African boy to the Congo when his mother claimed he was possessed by evil spirits and needed “deliverance.” City officials paid Dr. Richard Hoskins, an expert in African religion, over £4,000 to travel to Africa to investigate the possibility of an exorcism; evidently they were worried the family’s “sensibilities might be affected.” Hoskins completed the trip and advised the council against have the boy exorcised because the rituals can be “violent…deeply disturbing and traumatizing.”

In Kent, a Christian doctor is fighting for his job after he told a suicidal patient that Christianity may offer help. According to the doctor, “The man was depressed, and had left his own faith. So I told him, ‘You may find that Christianity offers you something that your own faith did not.'” The General Medical Council (GMC), which regulates standards among medical professionals, issued the doctor a warning, claiming he had “overstepped the line.” The GMC, which allows doctors to promote the healing effects of homoeopathy, chiropractic and reiki, also known as palm healing — all of which are unsupported by Western, evidence-based medicine but are backed by belief systems — has banned the mention of faith and prayer in a consultation.

The British Navy, which has been forced to downsize its fleet due to military budget cuts, was obliged by diktats of political correctness to install a special Satanist chapel onboard one of its warships to accommodate the religious requirements of a Satanist crewman.

In London, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) — a key promoter of multiculturalism — recently announced that it would drop the terms BC (Before Christ) and AD (which translates from the Latin “Anno Domini” to ” in the year of our Lord”) and replaced them with the “religiously-neutral” Before the Common Era, BCE, and Common Era, CE. The BBC justified its move this way: “As the BBC is committed to impartiality it is appropriate that we use terms that do not offend or alienate non-Christians.”

Anglican Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, who resigned as the Bishop of Rochester amid death threats from Muslim extremists in Britain, says the BBC’s move “amounts to the dumbing down of the Christian basis of our culture, language and history.”

The BBC has also refused to broadcast a screenplay about the threat that Islam poses to freedom of speech. The BBC’s director general, Mark Thompson, said he would not air a play the National Theatre called “Can We Talk About This?” which examines multiculturalism and how it has resulted in Britain being more divided than ever.

According to Thompson, there is “a growing nervousness about discussion about Islam.” He also claims that because Muslims are a religious minority in Britain, their faith should be given different coverage than that of more established groups.

In 2005, Thompson famously ordered BBC Two to air an anti-Christian musical called “Jerry Springer: The Opera,” which mocked God and presented Jesus Christ as a homosexual. At least 45,000 people contacted the BBC to complain about the show, which contained an estimated 8,000 obscenities. According to one observer: “If this show portrayed Mohammed or Vishnu as homosexual, ridiculous and ineffectual, it would never have seen the light of day.”

    And Penn State ignored the actions of Sandusky because of FEAR of bad publicity……….Wrong is wrong, sin is sin. …Actions such as these deserve the highest punishment and nothing should stand in the way….

  • PhillipGaley

    From what I've read of G0D in history, I'm not all that concerned about it—Britain just needs to be dragged to the woodshed and whipped into shape, . . . and yes, maybe the USA, as well, . . .

  • BS77

    England has gone from being "master of the seas" to a whimpering Orwelllian socialist welfare state. The Brits are intimidated and humiliated daily by the hordes of non assimilating, disrespectful and hostile ingrate immigrants. England is now a shadow of its former self.

  • Linda Rivera

    Despicable police and UK authorities ignore the terrible suffering of Britain’s daughters-female children who are targeted by gangs of Muslim monsters because they are non-Muslims. The cruel, Muslim predator gangs rape Britain’s children, sexually enslave them and force them into prostitution. At least one of the child victims begged for help from the police and was IGNORED. UK leaders and police DON’T CARE.

    The new British Freedom Party and EDL (English Defence League) CARE! British Freedom and EDL leaders have spoken out against this horror. On youtube. Thank God! EDL human rights activists have protested in the streets against this terrible evil. Please God, protect British children!

  • Linda Rivera

    I don't agree that Britain is ruled by political correctness! Britain is ruled by rabidly pro-Islam, anti-human rights, ANTI-FREEDOM ruling elites. Please God, PROTECT Britain's children!

    British Schoolgirl’s Testimony Muslims Threaten Children With Violence Rape Outside School

    Immoral and EVIL British leaders and police REFUSE to protect Britain’s non-Muslim children. I am unable to put into words my ANGER at British leaders and police REFUSING to protect Britain’s beautiful, innocent, defenseless children who are being offered up as a sacrifice to Islam by British leaders and police.

    Instead of immediately and permanently ending ALL Muslim immigration, deporting all Muslim criminals, terrorists and illegals, British leaders continue to massively import huge numbers of Muslims into Britain It is evident that merciless UK leaders want the number of child victims of Muslim gang predators to greatly INCREASE.

    This article purports to show the evils of Islam, but it really shows the decay of England. It does not show England slipping into sharia. It shows England slipping into a police-nanny state with ubiquitous surveillance such as described in 1984. Really, Muslims have nothing to do with it. They could be Chinese, Russian, Jewish.

    England is a dystopia, not of Hindus and Muslims (remember the Hindufrage which is now the Muslimfrage)? England is a dystopia of pusillanimous Britons spying on one another through lampposts and arresting people for noncrimes. That is the same way the Israel Lobby is pushing the United States. It started out with the rule that you can't say anything about Jews. It proceeded with the requirement for internal checkpoints, scanners, drones, and the ethos that "as long as it protects just one person it is all worth it." The surveillance state and its supporters use the same rhetoric, and the same companies as used in Israel. The lie that we are an oasis of Democracy, peace, freedom, and prosperity in a sea of brown terrorist savages is a fusion of Israeli and deep Southern Klansman racism, and Christian Fundamentalist paranoia.

    "Poor England" is held up as an example of the victims of sharia. Nonsense. We Americans kicked England out of America because of their constant watching, their taxes and securities, their embargoes and kosher stamps, their bills of attainder, and their fines and punishments for free speech. The Israel Lobby is trying to bring that all back with a tabloid vengeance. It is most unwelcome. England is an example of its own implosion and bad values, nothing more. Islam isn't taking it over. Technologized stupidity and cowardice is.

      When are you ever going to stop your disgusting anti-Jewish rants? They are vile and offer NOTHING to the discussion at hand.

    • stevefraser

      Maybe both Islam and the cowardice of the Brits are a problem.

  • Rifleman

    Not investigating because of the race of the suspects is racist. If they're going to 'be' racists either way, they might as well do their job.

    The people at the BBC show themselves to be ignoramuses. There is an official church in England, the Church of England, and the Queen is the head of that church. So it has been since Henry VIII established the Church of England in the 16th century A.D.

      I thought the BBC was going to institute the Muslim notation: AP….After the Prophet.

    • tagalog

      The decision of the BBC to use the manufactured B.C.E. and C.E. designations shows amply that they are anything but committed to impartiality. The designations "B.C." and "A.D." are almost universally used, they denote the same time period as "B.C.E." and "C.E.," and to use these new terms is anti-Christian as well as anti-clarity.

    If you brits don't wake up, the evil muslims will kill all of you!!!! islam is not a religion, it is an ideology. The crusades should have been a wake-up call that you never should have forgotten.

  • Drakken

    The Balkanization is now complete and the tipping point is being reached, when the police openly side with the muslims over the natives it is enevitable that civil war is going to come to pass, all it is going to take is an act so egregious that the natives will say enough is enough and give the muslim colonizers a taste of the sword.

  • Stuart Parsons

    Muslims spurred on by their false, evil, ghastly and intolerant religion have no intention of becoming a part of a multicultural Britain. The Islamic doctrine of Al-wala wal Bara, love what Allah loves and hate what Allah hates does not permit them to be multiculturalists. Has not Allah said many times in his so-called holy revelations that non-Muslims are the vilest of creatures and Muslim should not associate with them. He has also repeatedly exhorted them to fight non-Muslims until the religion is for Allah Alone.

    The U.K police have to walk a a tightrope put up by their political masters. David Cameron has stated the indigenous population of the U.K need to integrate more with the Muslim way of life, not the other way round.

    P.S My best wishes go out to Schlomotion, the Giant of Philosophy in whom the mythical Allah must be well pleased.

    England is toast. The Animal Farm elites have given up their birthright for a mess of beans. Poor olde England!!!
    Now humiliated and tormented by their immigrant "guests"…England does little or nothing….WHY?
    Because England is a wimpy wanker.

  • Linda Rivera

    TO BS77 – England is NOT a wimpy wanker!

    Courageous, patriotic EDL HEROES stand up and protest against Islamisation and Islamic sharia law, and are persecuted and prosecuted by UK leaders/police. EDL are demonized and lied about by the media. Police lie about EDL. The EDL leader is constantly brought up on false charges. He has been arrested and his wife arrested on false charges. Police even go to the home of his parents and harass them. Some people are afraid to join the EDL. Afraid of losing their jobs, their homes and even their lives. One pregnant EDL member has had to flee the country because Social Services were planning to take away her baby when she gave birth, because she is an EDL member. It is NOT allowed to protest Islamisation of Britain, or protest Islamic sharia law. There are over 85 Islamic sharia law courts in Britain.

    Muslim terrorists were discovered before they made a terrorist attack on an EDL. The plan was also to assassinate the EDL leader. It takes enormous courage to stand up against Islam in Britain. Every single Muslim terrorist is against the EDL, as is UK Prime Minister Cameron, UK leaders and police.

    And you thought Modern Liberalism isn't a mental disorder?

    All these incidents show that Brits are morons and are digging their own grave with the help of brain dead media staring with BBC.

    "Mr. Constable, I'm here at the cop shop to make a complaint about Muhammed, Ali, and Hassan. They were using my mother for sex, and then they killed her. Will you please investigate?"

    "What religion are Muhammed, Ali, and Hassan, young lady?"

    "What does that have to do with it? I actually saw them saw my mother's head off! But just so you know, they're Muslims."

    "Well, if they're Muslims, we don't investigate because they don't really know any better, and they will make big problems for us in the police department, our town, and they might even make a fuss nationally if we go after them."

    "So you're not going to investigate the sexual assaults and the murder that followed."

    "That's right; we're not going to investigate."

    "OK, thanks for seeing me. Goodbye."

    "Where are you going?"

    "Lawrence of Arabia is playing at the local theater, and I thought I'd go to the movies."

    "Well, just a minute, miss. Your bringing a claim against three Muslim men requires that we ask you some questions about discriminating against what we call Asian men."

    What Happened to England? it is really sad. If the people do not act now, it will be too late.
