Who Would Jesus Kill?
Apparently, Jesus would kill
And the Christians.
"In Iran, converts to Christianity face the death penalty. It is perverse that this despot is allowed to speculate on the views of Jesus, while his government leads Christ's followers to the gallows."
asks a good question:
"Can you imagine, for even the briefest glimmering of a nanosecond, Channel 4 issuing a similar invitation to President George W Bush? It is unthinkable; it would not remotely occur to the executives."
Dec 2008 -
At Christmas, western Christians should (but don't)
remember the persecution of non-western Christians
by Islamists and communists worldwide.
Because Bush won't declare it.
Because Obama will never declare it.
Because the enemy will never declare it.
Because the left will never declare it.
Because the media will never declare it.
We declare Victory in Iraq.
America and its brave allies,
led by President George W. Bush,
have delivered a crushing blow to the evil, oppressive
Tens of thousands of jihadi idiots died for nothing.
They threw away their lives for nothing -
for a worthless cause that has been simply abandoned.
The jihad has given up in Iraq, and has retreated back to Afghanistan and Pakistan
where it is trying desperately to recover morale.
But every jihadi can see what has happened.
The jihad lost.
The Iraq War is over, and the good guys won.
No thanks to that weak-kneed defeatist Barack Obama.
As Blackfive says:
"the incoming President tried his damndest to lose the war and should not be allowed near a celebration".
What the allied troops deserve but will never get.
Kate Fitzgerald of Democrats Abroad
wasn't just against the war -
she cast aspersions on the American military.
It was interesting that the American from Democrats Abroad
was attacking the honour of American soldiers -
while the two foreigners (Tony and I)
were defending them.
As Tony puts it:
"of what other country do its mainstream representatives abroad attack the country and snub those few foreigners who dare to defend it?"
Shockingly, Kate Fitzgerald
took her own life
on Aug 23, 2011,
after a long struggle with depression,
age only 25. RIP.
games are the first Olympics
held in a non-democracy
since the Cold War.
Shame on China for denying its people the right to free speech, freedom of religion
and the right to vote.
List of Olympic Games held in a non-democracy since 1945:
I voted No to the
I'm not totally against
I just want it to be a loose alliance of sovereign nations,
not a united superstate under the rule of unelected and unaccountable continental elites.
I resent the EU's lack of interest in democratic accountability,
and regard its cause as the fact that
democracy is still a new concept in continental Europe,
whereas unbroken democratic traditions are much older in places like
Ireland, Britain and America.
For example, Lisbon itself was the capital of a non-democracy when I was young.
Who I block:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following:
(a) Make threats.
(b) Accuse me of crimes.
(c) Comment on my appearance.
(d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.)
(e) Complain to my employer.
Yes, people do all these things.
