Skip to comments.Irish Pastor Under ‘Hate Crime’ Investigation for Sunday Sermon Against Islam
Posted on 05/31/2014 11:46:26 PM PDT by kingattax
BELFAST, Northern Ireland A 75-year-old Irish preacher was subjected to a police probe after he condemned Islam in a sermon and was accused of hate mongering.
James McConnell, pastor of the Whitewell Metropolitan Church in North Belfast, Ireland, discussed the religion of Islam during an evening sermon on Sunday, May 18th. During the sermon, McConnell denounced Islam and said the contrast between it and Christianity is stark.
The God we worship and serve this evening is not Allah, he proclaimed, according to a video of his sermon. The Muslim godAllahis a heathen deity. Allah is a cruel deity. Allah is a demon deity.

Who ratted him out?

Is it a hate crime too for a woman oppressed by Islam’s veil to just leave islam and preach against it?
What is wrong with the West? Talking from both sides of our mouths?
What is the difference between this pastor and her?
I’ll be darn. OUr system is corrupt and racist.
Didn’t Ireland get out of the UK? Who is infecting Ireland to adopt UK’s hard-on for bowing down to Islam? May as well change the name from Republic of Ireland to Islamic State of Ireland. I don’t get the western world’s desire to bow before Islam and declare it the most equal (and superior) of all religions.
"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
Sir Winston Churchill. He called it right, but if he were alive today and said it, he would be thrown in jail...for speaking the truth.
certain things in this world are inevitable. They’re just a matter of time. War between islam and judeochristianity is one of those things IMO. It’s going to happen. eventually.
You mean he told the truth about islam?
Meanwhile in the Mosques of Ireland, vicious hatred of Christians and Jews is preached with little worry of police reaction.
Take out the word Allah, and his sermon sounds like it came straight from the Old Testament.
How long before the Bible becomes “Hate Speech?”
The difference between having a bill of rights and not. We even allow the Westboro Baptist Church.
It's because the Muzzies vote 90% Socialist.
The Muzzies also hate Western values and traditions, so they fit right in with Western Socialists.

An Irishman told me that "if they make any trouble, they'll end up face down in the Liffey."
>> Who ratted him out?
Anyone. It’s the #ing UK.
I agree with everything he said.
Islam is a vile cult.
This happened in BELFAST, Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland belongs to the UK. The rest of Ireland (5/6 of it) is an independent country called Republic of Ireland. Belfast is in the part that belongs to the UK.
POLICE? Irish mobs need to take to the streets over this.
Objective cultural analysis and comparison is a deviation from correct thinking.
and a prudent avis will surely ensnare a vermiculate creature.
“War between islam and judeochristianity is one of those things IMO. Its going to happen. eventually.”
What do you mean “eventually”? I don’t know if you’re old enough to remember the TV commercials for hand-softening dish-washing detergent with the tag-line “you’re soaking in it”, but we are.
The Judeo-Christian world has been at war with Islam for decades, and as this story demonstrates we are losing badly.
There’s a Taliban proverb - “The West has all the watches but we have all the time”. The Western mindset thinks of a war as something that should be over with in a few years. Islamicists view war as something which can take generations. Pour money from Saudi-Arabia into the American political system and eventually you’ll find a hack like Bill Clinton who will do anything for a buck. Keep at it, and keep funding the dissolution of the Judeo-Christian moral culture and before long you’ll be able to get a blantant Muslim sympathizer like Barack Obama or even Hillary Clinton in the presidency.
Meanwhile pour some of that oil wealth into promoting liberal-socialism in Europe and then flood the continent with Muslim immigrants who within a few decades will be the majority population.
The end result will be a new Caliphate, aided and abetted by weak-minded fools accusing Christian preachers of “hate-crimes”.
It’s Belfast. Still a part of the UK. I’m sure free Ireland also has nutty rules against insulting Islam.
“Didnt Ireland get out of the UK?”
Was that a serious reply? It’s hard to tell sometimes whether a comment is subtle and brilliant satire or mind-numbing blindness - there’s a bit of overlap between the two.
Suffice it to say that Northern Ireland is a part of the U.K., and the Republic of Ireland is a nominally independent nation. This two-state solution is what has historically and euphemistically been described as a “compromise”, known better colloquially as “casus belli”.
You see, the ultra-loyalist lowland Scots the British monarchy imported to settle the Ulster plantation largely remain, to this day, ultra-loyalist... much to the chagrin of a U.K. that would best wish to be rid of the business entirely. This can at times result in some minor difficulty for all parties involved, and will likely continue to do so until one party or the other is pushed off the island (or until they find some common enemy to murder in the meantime).
as bad as it is presently is, I think this is all just a prelude to something much worse. I think shortly after Iran has nuclear weapons, it will kick off.
Probably a parishoner hiding in the closet.
I see Iran acquiring nuclear weapons and then sharing the technology with other Islamic countries such as Sudan to be just another step in this decades-long war.
Would Iran have been able to get this far with its nuclear weapons project without a soft Islam-sympathetic president like Obama in the White House?
He is in Northern Ireland, UK.
Going to happen? It has been happening for the past 1400 years, only the mooselimbs are the only ones that NEVER quit.
The Jews and the Christians want to believe that all religions are the same, that it's only a "few, a small 1 or 2 per cent" of mooselimbs that are radicals. Yeah, that's only 30 million crazies.
Read my tag line because it applies to all terrorist savages, and it is the only way to end this madness.
Islam (aka Mohammedanism) is a hate crime.
Bfl. Looks like a good sermon, but I’ll have to watch it later. Thanks for posting.
Meanwhile, the Moslems preach hatred and death against Jews and Christians and anybody not Islamic enough for them 24/7 from every Moslem pulpit, all over the internet, all over YouTube, all over Facebook, with absolutely NO consequences whatsoever.
“Would Iran have been able to get this far with its nuclear weapons project without a soft Islam-sympathetic president like Obama in the White House?”
Yes, the vile Clinton presidency certainly helped China to build its nuke force, North Korea to join the nuke club, and Libya was not far behind. Under President Hillary, Iran and other muslim states will surely get the job done.
Or the police spying on churches. Sign of a totalitarian state. They have nothing better to do.
Islam has been at war with Christianity and everybody else ever since the 7th century. It never ends. It just ebbs and flows like a tide going in and out. Islam is a violent heresy. If they were Christians they would exterminated.
Imagine if there was an ideology surrounding the concept of a “pure Aryan race”, one that hated Jews...and you weren’t allowed to speak out against it because that would be “racist”.
I don’t see how this is any different than not being able to speak out about Nazi’s. You MUST be able to call out an evil ideology, otherwise you’re engaging in national suicide.
This is insane. Please, somebody explain how it is any different!
Unavoidable. I think the main problem is, it’s going to start civil wars in western countries...once that happens the entire world will fall into chaos.
May God bless you pastor.
Reminds me of the time back in the early 90s when I was preaching and this liberal weenie woman had invited this Muslim to the church. I basically said Jesus was the only way to Heaven. She demanded that I apologize to him. I told her to pound sand in a polite way.
My tagline has, for several years, been in close agreement with Rev. McConnell...
My apologies. I lost my temper when I read “Ireland.” I didn’t notice the city of Belfast because the opening few lines didn’t bother to distinguish between “Ireland” and “Northern Ireland.” I do know the difference between the two.
Still then... Being in Northern Ireland... This is going to spark one hell of a fight.
I meant exactly what I meant it to say...
It wasn’t until I calmed down I saw this was in Belfast. I guess that just makes my post all the more ironic considering why there is an Ireland and Northern Ireland.

We have been engaged in limited warfare with elements of Islam but an all out holy war hasn’t been waged for quite a while and not during the age of nuclear weapons. Most westerners would wish to avoid such a conflict. I think Islam will force the world down that path once Iran has the means of producing and proliferating nuclear weapons. I guess I’m talking about Armageddon.
I would describe the situation for the past two decades as
a “sporadic holy war.” Was there ever a day in any holy war when more infidels were killed than on Sept 11 2001? I believe that 9/11 was intended to rile up Islamicists in preparation for the decades-long “slow” war we are in the midst of. Islamicists have succeeded in breaking the will of much of Europe. As their population grows so will their political influence. At some point Europe will decide it’s easier just to go along with the wishes of its new Islamic majority than to confront a nuclear armed Iran.
The one sticking point in the road to a global Caliphate has been all those blasted conservative Christians in the United States and in parts of Africa. It’s just not as easy to dominate those people. Note how little support Christians are getting both domestically and abroad from our current administration.
While verifying this quote I located the following, which others may find useful.
“All editions from 1902 had an abridged text, in which Churchill excised about 25% of the original manuscript, but also some new material.  The Churchill Center is now facilitating publication of a new unabridged edition.” - http://www.winstonchurchill.org/learn/writings
“Originally published in two volumes in 1899, The River War has been out of print in its original, unabridged version since it was shortened to one volume in 1902.” - http://www.staugustine.net/our-books/books/the-river-war/
An archived page from the Churchill Center has the quote - http://web.archive.org/web/20080624000933/http://www.winstonchurchill.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=137
The new unabridged edition does not yet appear on the Churchill Center website. An unabridged edition is available at http://www.staugustine.net/our-books/books/the-river-war/
This is an awesome quote. Is it the reason Obama returned the bust of Churchill?
