This Might Develop Into Something Critical


The Bishop of Winchester, the Rt Rev Michael Scott-Joynt, warned that the death of “religious literacy” among those who made and administered the law had created an imbalance in the way in which those with faith were treated compared to sexual minorities.

Highlighting the case Gary McFarlane, a relationship counsellor who was sacked by Relate for refusing to give sex therapy to a homosexual couple, he said that the judiciary now went out of its way to protect the rights of minorities.

At the same time, for the first time in British history politicians and judges were largely ignorant of religion and so failed to appreciate the importance Christians placed on abiding by the scriptures rather than the politically correct values of the secular state.

The Bishop’s concerns were underlined by Lord Woolf, a former Lord Chief Justice, who agreed that in some legal cases the balance had gone “too far” in tipping away from Christians.

Following on Amnon Lord's blistering attack on Israeli intellectuals in Hebrew in Makor Rishon, there may be a rollback in sight against the one-worlders, moral non-relaivity, humnanists, et al.

Amnon attacked a statement by that Steve Plaut picked up on, writing:

In Haaretz today, Hebrew University Professor Daniel Blatman writes the most anti-Semitic article that has yet to appear in the Israeli mainstream media. Blatman claims to be a Holocaust scholar, and is employed by the Hebrew University at the Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry.

In his ranting anti-Semitic article, Blatman bleats: "...In the Israel of today, we can observe quite a few conditions whose presence in other societies and among other peoples led to racial separation, ethnic cleansing and even genocide...". Blatman's rant is part of the current wave of Jewish self-hatred in Israel under which leftist Jews insist that Israel's refusal to allow unlimited numbers of Africans seeking better-paying jobs to enter the country is the moral equivalent of the Nazi Holocaust of Jews. Hundreds of Africans "protested" over the weekend in protests featuring signs in Hebrew written for them by leftist Israelis, making exactly such comparisons. Blatman joins them, insisting that Israel in 2011 is exactly the same as Germany in 1932.

Lord indeed compares the situation in Israel today to 1932 but notes that the reality is that just like then the Nazis and Communists managaed together to destroy Germany democracy, at present, Blatman and cohorts are the "Communists" and Salah Raad and his extremists pals are the "Nazis".
