During his sermon, the clergyman said: “Islam is heathen, Islam is satanic, Islam is a doctrine spawned in hell.”

He also likened Muslims to the IRA, saying there were cells spread right across the UK. …

Belfast pastor James McConnell denounces Islam as the devil’s doctrine at Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle church sermon
Doesn’t matter that Northern Ireland is the UK’s last holdout against “SSM”—the “hate crime” nonsense from Westminster reaches up there too. And of course their version of CAIR is already bloviating away.

Ah. The future of America, it appears, since 2008.

How dumb can 1/2 of a nation be? Or 47%, that is.

He is right, but the followers of Satan (Muslims) are not going to like that, and send a hit squad to visit him.

Is the British Government going to strip Winston Churchill of his knighthood. Are they going to ban his books?

I applaud this brave priest, but I hope he has planned for a change in career, or in the location of his parish. So many christian nations are falling down like dominoes to appease all the latest modern fads and life styles, sort of like Harvard was prepared to do last week with that Satanic Mass. I can’t even talk to my elderly dad about the Harvard business. He simply would not believe me, or consider it a non serious piece of theatre, nothing more.

The truth of words, from a pastor, is being investigated as a hate crime when the true crime is islam and islam’s unholy book of lies, hate, subjugation and death. I have doubts any moslem has ever made it to Heaven since all moslems serve the ruler of Hades. Anyone that studies islam knows, as all of and not of islam know, islam is NOT a religion of peace. islam is a wolf wearing a lamb’s skin. islam has to hide behind the lamb skin because islam is a rabid wolf. There is no religion today which can or does rival islam in the intent of islam which is to bring souls to the ruler of Hades. islam seeks death and those not seeking death from islam will be put to death if islam has its way. The religion of liberalism seeks death just as does islam. This has to be why liberals love islam. For just like moslems, liberals are rabid wolves.

Belfast Islamic Centre can go back where they came from: hell.

The sooner the better. Oooh is that hate? What then what of you killing people since the inception of your “religion”? As a fundamental doctrine of your “religion”? Because people don’t want your “religion”

Islam wages war on humanity. And always has. Face.the.fact. Islam is incompatible with life.

Satan is incompatible with life. Surprise surprise.

The raw truth often is.

I wonder if the pastor might have had these fine folks in mind when he made these comments.I also wonder just how many of these fine folks were prosecuted for "hate speech".

(If you look closely you'll notice the reference to the BBC)

If my British facebook friends are anything to go by, they consider Northern Ireland a hot bed of religious maniacs - sort of the way libs here demonize the south. My feeling is that folks in NI will never change anymore than the American religious will ever change.

I read the comments section of the Belfast Telegraph article. Those people in Northern Ireland are nucking futz! The lefties are in the muzzies’ corner 100%.

That pastor is crazy-brave for speaking the truth. What a messed up country that the police are investigating him for a possible hate crime while mullahs & imams preach violent hatred of “infidels” which gets turned into bloody murder: Drummer Rigby.

The hardy souls who agree with the pastor are a besieged minority. Sure am glad I don’t live there.

But don’t you think we are besieged as well? We’ve endured 9/11, Boston Marathon, etc. Detroit and other cities are turning into no-go places and our betters are constantly telling us that the Religion of Pieces is a religion of peace. I’m scared!

The Irish need to review their history, namely the moslem attack on Baltimore, Ireland in 1631.

Unlike in Belfast our Protestants and Catholics haven’t been killing each other for the last five decades.

And in America, the looser the local gun laws, the quieter the Muslims seem to be. Especially here in the South.

It’s obvious that some disagree.
