I found this picture on the website of The European Parliament Intergroup on LGBT Rights. Clearly, they consider Christians who uphold traditional values to be bad people who need to be silenced because they “discriminate” against those who identify themselves as being homosexual, bisexual or transgender.
Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights on freedom of thought, conscience and religion states,
1. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, and to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.
But as I pointed out in a previous post, the rights they give us with one hand they can remove with the other:
2. Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs shall be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of public safety, for the protection of public order, health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.
So, when the rights and freedoms of homosexuals are considered paramount, this Article is rendered worthless.
There is no freedom of thought, conscience and religion where the sexual preferences of others are concerned. It is simply a mirage.
The “equality and diversity” agenda is vital in creating a European superstate because it is being used to remove our genuine and important freedoms and to destroy society through encouraging casual “relationships” to replace families.
And as Lenin said, destroy the family, you destroy the country.
As you know, I have rejected the Theory of Evolution. I have written many posts on the subject of Creationism because I believe the science better fits. In 2005, French socialist politician and mathematics professor, Guy Lengagne, wrote a draft report called “The Dangers of Creationism in Education” and said, “If we are not careful, creationism could become a threat to human rights” and warned that if Creationism were allowed to be taught in schools, the result could be the replacement of democracy by theocracy, the obstruction of a cure for AIDS, and a rise in fundamentalist extremism.
In 2007, the European Council Committee on Culture, Science and Education rejected the report saying that freedom of thought and discussion was a “fundamental value.” But it was only rejected by 63 of 119 members and will no doubt rear its ugly head again, if it hasn’t already.
Because these “human rights” laws have the effect of pitting one person against another, it is an excellent divide and rule technique. There are many recent examples of people believing they have the right to silence others, such as the Muslim woman who had a discussion about Islam with a Christian couple on their own property and complained to the police, and the pathetic CPS took on the case and the couple’s business was destroyed even though they were found not guilty. There are numerous examples where free speech has been stamped on by the “authorities” under the illusion of “homophobia”.
Countries in the EU are beginning to take dissent on this issue very seriously indeed,
In December 2009, a television programme was broadcast in Hungary featuring the host and guests making remarks about LGBT persons to the effect that the latter were ‘decaying’ and ‘destroying’ society, and that the gay community could not coexist with the ‘civilisation of white Christians’. The Hungarian Radio and Television Commission found that this was capable of stirring up hatred against LGBT people and violating their human rights. It subsequently ordered the television company to suspend broadcasting for a period of 90 minutes, during which it was obliged to screen the Commission’s main findings.
And like those recent “jokes” sent as tweets which were rewarded with police intervention, be careful what you say in jest,
In the Netherlands, the Amsterdam Court of Appeal found that a statement published on a selfdefined ‘satirical website’ that even the death sentence was a mild penalty for gay people was ‘unnecessarily offensive’. The defendant was sentenced to a week in prison (suspended) and a fine.
And woe betide you tell the truth,
Furthermore, the [National Council on Combating Discrimination] in Romania found that a press article depicting homosexuals as a source of debauchery and danger had created a degrading and humiliating environment which was hostile to homosexuals, and concluded that the author had misused his freedom of expression.
And if you think you can belong to any political party you please, you’d better think again because this one was “dissolved” without sufficent grounds,
One potentially significant development took place in the Czech Republic where, on 17 February 2010, the Supreme Administrative Court adopted a judgment dissolving an extremist right wing party, Dělnická strana [Workers’ Party] The Workers’ Party openly espoused racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and anti-Semitic views. The Court stated that while the program and speeches of the members of the party did not constitute sufficient grounds on which to dissolve the party, this measure would be justified once the party started to harm the rights of other persons and develop into a real danger for democracy. The Workers’ Party included homophobic statements in its political program and led demonstrations which, even if not openly announced as homophobic, contained homophobic undertones.
They banned a party in case it became a danger for democracy.
WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
