Hate crime laws are simply the precursor to official dhimmi status. The politically correct laws that have been enacted in the West are only ushering in the eventual reign of Islam by making us all cowards that surrender the truth for human respect and the lie of wordly peace.For different reasons altogether, an English actor and openly homosexual man, Christopher Biggins, LifeSite reports, has condemned the Big Brother thought-police tactics:
From Daily Mail: A priest has been interviewed by police on suspicion of inciting racial hatred for expressing his Christian views in his parish newsletter.
Father John Hayes, 71, was quizzed for more than an hour after commenting on the case of a Muslim girl who went to court over her wish to wear a full veil in class.
A sergeant and community support officer turned up without warning at his presbytery after an allegation was made to a Scotland Yard 'hate crimes' unit.
Biggins, who is known for his appearances on British television sit-coms and played the young Emperor Nero in the BBC’s production “I Claudius”, responded that the proposed law is “a charter for nosy-parkers and bully-boys, for prigs who find offence at every turn and bores who want to impose their narrow, self-righteous opinions on the rest of us.”Another source, unnamed in the article anticipates an increase in hate-crimes against homosexuals in reaction to the proposed legislation: “Whilst I myself am happily heterosexual I have a lot of gay friends who are all up in arms about this. There is a very real fear that resentment and anger will bubble up to such an extent in the community at large that they will be hated for being a ‘special case’. This is also one step on a very slippery slope, one that could lead to the ultimate dictatorship where words are a cause for persecution, none of us would be safe.”
“I despair at the mood of edict-issuing, word-censoring dreariness that seems to have overtaken the leaders of the gay rights movement. They, more than anyone, should be on the side of flamboyance, eccentricity, laughter and earthiness. Instead, they are acting like old commissars of some Eastern bloc regime or a bunch of Victorian moral puritans, clamping down on politically incorrect words."
All told, it seems to me that Genevieve has the correct read of the situation in England -- that is, unless there is a Shaker-esque homosexual agenda for taking over and repopulating their religion with converts. Until that happens, I'm afraid we see, yet again, the Religion of Peace using the helpful weapon of multicultural (in)tolerance to further the goals of domination.
