Are Children ‘Infected’ by Judeo-Christian Values?
National Review ^ | 3/16/11 | Paul Diamond

Posted on 03/16/2011 11:53:26 AM PDT by Nachum

In an important case in the United Kingdom, the High Court held this week that Christian views on sexual morality could be “inimical” to a child’s welfare. Mr. and Mrs. Johns wanted to foster a child as young as five as respite carers for parents who were having difficulty. (Snip) When they retired, they applied to be registered as foster carers again. Early on in the assessment process, their Christian faith was identified (they are Pentecostals). It was felt their views on sexual ethics conflicted with the duty to promote and value diversity.

You bet. My kids also tell me they get infected from soap and water, homework, and house chores.

The usual Marxist/socialist/democrat projection.

That's not an infection, it is an inoculation.

Its a matter of ‘when’ now, not ‘if’.

You have to wonder what it is about (some) human beings that makes them hate themselves and their species and their societies so much that they are willing to throw out any semblance to civilization.

Very hard to be optimistic when judges become vandals.

This is simply the State imposing it’s own religion and excluding the religious beliefs of anyone else, except of course for Muslims.

More word games from the left. You want word games, that's where to go. You want solutions to problems, go somewhere else.

Here's something George Orwell had to say about the elites and their word games. It's from 1984. These words are spoken whilst O'Brien has Winston strapped to a table and hooked up, via electrodes, to some kind of electro-shock machine.

What are the stars?’ said O’Brien indifferently. ‘They are bits of fire a few kilometres away. We could reach them if we wanted to. Or we could blot them out. The earth is the centre of the universe. The sun and the stars go round it.’

Winston made another convulsive movement. This time he did not say anything. O’Brien continued as though answering a spoken objection:

‘For certain purposes, of course, that is not true. When we navigate the ocean, or when we predict an eclipse, we often find it convenient to assume that the earth goes round the sun and that the stars are millions upon millions of kilometres away. But what of it? Do you suppose it is beyond us to produce a dual system of astronomy? The stars can be near or distant, according as we need them. Do you suppose our mathematicians are unequal to that? Have you forgotten doublethink?’

One can only imagine what removing Christians from the pool of people who can foster children, will have on those children. This can’t be good.

The definition of people who CAN be discriminated against these days is:

heterosexual
white
male
christian
if you believe in morality

Troubling news. Great Britain has not only succumbed to an official secularism that is blatantly hostile to Christian values and, at the same time, made more and more concessions to Islamic religious practices. This will not end well for England and it must be a warning to complacent Americans, especially Christians, who think ‘it can’t happen here’. It can - and will. Our complacency is a form of acquiescence. Americans are not immune to the harsh reality of unelected judges and governmental agencies decreeing liberal interpretations of law that suddenly find the Christian religion ‘intolerable’ in some way. We must remain vigilant.

Do they ever ask this question about any other religion?

What hypocrisy and contempt these people have. Self-loathing their own history and faith.

This is liberalism taken to its logical extreme: They have the state decide what is good or bad for you. If they don’t like your religion, they call it an “infection.” I wonder what religion the judge belongs to?

The duty? The National Socialist Party is alive in the UK.

The Welsh Are Bastards

On current demographic trends, this statement will be true in another thirty years or so.

In 2003, Wales became the first constituent country of the United Kingdom where more than half of births (50.3 per cent) were outside marriage. Northern Ireland had the lowest proportion of births outside marriage (34.4 per cent), while in the United Kingdom as a whole 41.5 per cent of births were outside marriage.

“The area of England with the lowest bastardy rate ? Swinging London (34.5%), where the large Asian and African (though not Caribbean) immigrant communities frown on illegitimacy. And the highest rate in England ? The hideously white North-East at 53.5%.

The graph on page 73 shows illegitimacy, after falling in the late 60s and early 70s (probably due to the advent of the contraceptive pill) rocketing in the Thatcher years, doubling between about 1983-1988. By the mid-1980s the working class were increasingly fragmenting, the underclass was burgeoning.”

http://ukcommentators.blogspot.com/2004/12/welsh-are-bastards.html

Unfortunately one of the unintended consequences of the Thatcher era reforms was to eliminate large areas of traditional working class jobs that had become economically irrelevant and were protected by ‘jobs programs’ by both Labor and the Tory wets. This certainly helped create the massive growth of a welfare dependent, nonworking class i.e., the underclass.

Socialist government intervention in the economy is simply toxic as it creates administrative and bureaucratic programmatic controls which are subject to control and manipulation by politically privileged players (trade unions, for instance). The economy becomes increasingly dysfunctional as large amounts of the work force become part of the protected structures whether their activity creates little or no profit. Either the economy eventually enters stasis or a rough correction is administered to keep it functioning at all. The former privileged participants have their meal tickets canceled. The end of a lot of traditional trade union style jobs (mines, mills, foundries, smelters) suddenly casts many breadwinners adrift and directionless. Their offspring , who anticipated following dad and Uncle Fred into the plant or mine floor finds the universe changing overnight with few intellectual or psychological resources to use. Family dysfunction, collapse and pathology follow. ‘The helping professions’ only help dysfunction to flourish by propagating trendy pop psychological notions such as the courts and social welfare bureaucrats spout in this article.

I was just thinking that in a really weird way, 0bama is right. Let’s dump the Brits as allies. They obviously don’t care about their nation or their civilization. If they don’t think it’s worth fighting for, why should we?

Now, for thinking that 0bama might have been right about something, I’m gonna go take a shower.

There are further steps, which will be taken soon I fear.

If you know a Christian in the UK, tell them to get out. Now. The next step will be internment.
