The Bishop of Carlisle has spoken up in support of Christianity! He must be arrested immediately and charged with Islamophobia!!

After he has served his mandatory 7 years sentence, the Arch Dhimmi of Canterbistan might grant him forgiveness on condition he attends Islamic Awareness and Celebration of Diversity courses.

Now just in case you think the Bishop of Carlisle is some sort of fundamentalist, make sure you check out the spooky manifestation of 666 in the house of commons that follows this:

"A senior bishop has compared the Government to a demonic seven-headed beast for imposing its morality on society.

The Rt Rev Graham Dow likened the Labour administration to the beast which appears in the Bible's apocalyptic Book of Revelation.

Speaking at a General Synod... the Bishop said: "I happen to believe that our Government is moving into the realm of imposing its morality and it is therefore becoming a Revelation 13 Government rather than a Romans 13 Government."

Chapter 13 in the Book of Revelation begins: "As I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the names of blasphemy.

"And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat and great authority."

It ends: "Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

Bishop Dow, whose comments followed the Archbishop of Canterbury's controversial remarks on Islamic law, later claimed he was not calling members of the Government themselves as demons, but said the Book of Revelation was portraying the Roman Empire in those terms."


SPOOKY?

" 666 raises it’s ugly head in British House of Commons debate

By Michael Ireland
Chief Correspondent, ASSIST News Service
LONDON, ENGLAND (ANS) -- Whether or not you are a student of prophecy, a conspiracy theorist, or dabble in the art of biblical numerology, you may find interesting or disturbing the fact that a motion calling for the disestablishment of the Church of England has been listed in the British House of Commons as 666 -- the Number of the Beast.

According to Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent of The Times, Labour Member of Parliament (MP) John Austin, who has repeatedly tabled Early Day Motions urging disestablishment, put down his latest motion last night as MPs debated scrapping Britain's blasphemy laws.


The motion appeared on the House of Commons order paper numbered 666, the number associated with the Antichrist in the Book of Revelation. Some scholars believe 666 referred to the Emperor Nero, Gledhill reported.

The King James Bible renders Revelation 13:8 as: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

Bob Russell, Liberal Democrat MP for Colchester and one of the signatories, said: “It is incredible that a motion like this should have, by chance, acquired this significant number. This number is supposed to be the mark of the Devil. It looks as though God or the Devil have been moving in mysterious ways."

Russell added: “What is even stranger is that this motion was tabled last night when MPs were debating blasphemy.”

According to Gledhill, the motion is unlikely to be debated. "But momentum for looser ties between Church and State is growing, as the support for the repeal of the blasphemy law illustrates. The blasphemy law favors Christianity and in particular the Church of England," she says.

Gledhill writes that although the attempt by Liberal Democrat MP Evan Harris to amend the Criminal Justice Bill was unsuccessful, the Prime Minister Gordon Brown has disclosed that he is consulting with the churches about its repeal.

A report by the Associated Press (AP) on Newsday.com says the beast of the Book of Revelation "intruded into the banter of the House of Commons" on Thursday when a motion calling for the disestablishment of the Church of England was numbered 666.

The last book of the Bible says 666 is the number of a beast that "had two horns like a lamb, and…spake as a dragon," and that "doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men."

The motion simply states: "That this House calls for the disestablishment of the Church of England" -- in other words ending its status as the country's legally established, official faith.

The AP report says that such motions rarely result in any action, but are used by members to publicize issues. Other members may sign the motion as an indication of support. By Thursday afternoon, the number of the signers was three.

The Church of England, created by King Henry VIII's breach with Rome, is the legally established faith in England. The monarch, by law, is obliged to be a member, and has the title of Supreme Governor of the church.

"Eyebrows were raised in the House of Commons on Thursday when a motion calling for the Church of England to be disestablished was listed with the number 666, symbol of the AntiChrist," says an Agence France Presse (AFP) report carried byYahoo!NewsUK.

"This number is supposed to be the mark of the Devil. It looks as though God or the Devil have been moving in mysterious ways," said Bob Russell, a Liberal Democrat MP among those proposing the motion for debate. What is even stranger is that this motion was tabled last night when MPs were debating blasphemy," he added.

The motion calls for an end to the formal link between Church and State in England -- embodied in the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, who is both head of state and head of the Church of England.

The number 666 is referred to in the Book of Revelation in the Bible: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred, three score and six."

"It is incredible that a motion like this should have, by chance, acquired this significant number," said Russell. "

Been some time since being by, but, last time I was, you offered up some conversation ideas....

(A) Here is a topic we might chew on--how Christianity spread by the power of the gospel message --early Christians did not have power or position often were jailed and persecuted...it did not persuade by violence--but Islam did.
(B) Today Islam is spreading by fear and conquest a of old--not a persuasive message for mankind. Few want to emulate the Muslim life.
(C) Also, on topic is reviewing this history one sees that Islam attacked nations for no purpose other than conquest--that is, they had no argument with Palestine when they invaded it, nor with Cyprus, or Egypt or Spain--they were a band of marauders, not missionaries!

(A) Untrue, Auntie. And actually, more specifically, the Holy Roman Catholic Church not only used violence to establish itself into Europe and the Americas, but made it a sin to not belong to their way of thinking.
But, quite a few of us have already mentioned this fact to you, so why do you now say this is a “welcome topic to chew on” and why do you start as if Islam was the only “bad” religion in the world? Do you imagine that folks LIKED being burnt at the stake for being witches and heretics? For going against church wishes? Do you imagine that the natives here in America wanted to give up their precious gold and artwork to the church and be beaten into submission, killed, or be used like slaves?



(B) While it is true that jihadism rules by fear and intimidation, it must be extremely aggravating for them to see so many Muslims living a peaceful existence with other religions, other lands, and actually sweeping away some of the filth of that sour sect, jihadism; the evil you seek to confront.
As for who all DOES use fear and intimidation to rule, do you imagine that our soldiers are going from door to door asking politely for any weapons that may be on the premises?



(C) You are offering the absolution to your own group, those “missionaries” as you call them, even though they also sought to grab land that was not theirs, take properties and wealth that was not theirs, take the lives of those who offered resistance.
Spain overthrew their own domination with some help from Europeans…..are you of the mind to help the present day Indians regain what they’ve lost from the early Christians?
And, if you are too selfish to give up your home, will you at least help those in South America? Won’t you please help them overthrow their oppressive governments and take back their own lands?

The answer is “no”, of course.
You would no more do that than you would give away your car or plane rides, because the original natives that live there still, if THEY truly owned that land, would NOT suck the oil from their lands to feed the appetite of a self-serving nation of spoiled rotten children.
We salt the earth (not just north of the Mason/Dixon, either, though we use the stuff heavily on the roads up this way, but more the fertilizers and pesticides we use everywhere there are crops, golf courses, and pretty lawns) even though we understand that if we pour salt water onto our plants, they will die. We play with food while thousands die of starvation every week in the world, and we’ll damned throw it away to rot if we don’t get the price we want.

Here’s one back for you to consider chewing on.
Has this nation, the United States of America, turned out the way it is because of the insistence of being morally righteous (when in fact, we are a nation of ravenous wolves) or because religion is a pack of ravenous wolves to begin with and we are just emulating it?

About cursing a distant thunder of the past….
With tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. Auntie, this should not be.
Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? Sister, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?
Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

Auntie whar' is you? STUFF is happening.

The French pres spoke of Malraux --meaning "Watch out for Islam"

"The outstanding event of our time is the violence of the advance of Islam. Underestimated by most of our contemporaries, the ascendancy of Islam is analogically comparable to the beginnings of communism at the time of Lenin.

The consequences of this phenomenon are still unpredictable. At the outset of the Marxist revolution, people thought they could stem its tide through partial solutions. Neither Christianity nor organizations such as corporations or labor unions found a solution.

Likewise today the Western world is hardly prepared to confront the problem of Islam. In theory, the solution does indeed seem extremely difficult. Perhaps it would be possible in practice, if, limiting ourselves to the French aspect of this question, the solution were thought out and applied by a genuine statesman."

Like that Auntie?

And this:


From the ArabNews:

JEDDAH,
Early morning shoppers at a supermarket in Jeddah were left reeling yesterday, with some falling unconscious, after a well-built Syrian man clinched a knife and decapitated his 15-month-old nephew in front of his mother in the store’s fruit and vegetable section.

In a brutal murder that has shocked the city, the 25-year-old man beheaded the boy, who was out shopping with his mother — in full glare of shoppers and staff at Al-Marhaba supermarket on Sari Street around 9.30 a.m. The man, who is the boy’s maternal uncle, apparently killed the boy following a dispute with his sister and brother-in-law.

Eyewitnesses said that the man picked up a knife from inside the store and severed the boy’s head. The mother and a shopper standing close by fainted, while several other stood in shock and disbelief over what had happened.

A police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Arab News, “The murderer was in a dispute with the boy’s mother and her husband. He chopped off the boy’s head in front of the mother to get back at her.”

Just another day in the Religion of Peace.

When is your lent over?
