I was reading my local news Paper over the weekend, it isn’t something I normally do because every time I read it I wind myself up with the general crap and problems in there I can’t do much about. I decided I’d take a chance on it this time as the alternative of boredom wasn’t an option. While making my way through the usual promises of regeneration from Local Government, crime articles and Hazel ‘Squirrel Nutkins’ Blears smiling like a cock-end I came across this interesting story: Atheist who mocked Jesus and the Pope hit with Asbo. Under the Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006, shouldn’t all religion be banned and all those people that try to push their religion whether it be by attempted direct conversion, leaflets or notes have an ASBO smacked on them too as well as prison time?
Mr. Harry Taylor had been leaving leaflets and posters in a Liverpool airport poking fun at the Christian and Muslim faiths. He’d done this on three occasions. The kind of thing depicted on the works were a smiling crucified Christ next to a bottle of ‘no nails’ glue, two Islamic suicide bombers in Heaven being told “There’s no more virgins left” (I heard that before somewhere) and a picture of the Pope with a Condom on his finger. Mr. Taylor said he left the leaflets there as he was: “merely trying to convert them to atheism”. Simple enough, eh? Obviously someone got their feelings hurt, I’m not sure if it was someone actually religious or some random Politically Correct tosser who actively searches out material like this and then gets offended on someone else’s behalf because they’re sad PC knob-ends with nothing else worth while to do in their lives.
It doesn’t really matter who reported it, what matters is he was charged with three counts of causing religiously aggravated harassment, alarm and distress. He was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for two years, ordered to do 100 hours unpaid work and pay £250 costs. I find it amazing he could be charged with that when the Bible, and more so the Qur’an, are full of Verses and Surrahs that preach hate, rape and murder. By that Judge and Jury’s standards and the Law’s standards many religions should be a banned ideology and anyone advocating it should be locked up.
Wait, it gets better… I was watching TV and came across this story: Muslim daubs war memorial with ‘Islam will dominate the world’ This man wrote: “‘Islam will dominate the world – Osama is on his way” and “Kill Gordon Brown” and it’s considered Political? The use of the word ISLAM doesn’t denote anything to do with religion at all? And the kill Gordon Brown bit isn’t incitement to commit murder? It also isn’t religious motivated if Islam was in the previous sentence? So this Muslim man does this and he gets a two year conditional discharge and told to pay the council £500 compensation? Yet the Atheist didn’t say anything about killing anyone, didn’t harbour any grand plans for an Atheist world order and just poked fun at religion, yet he got a harsher sentence?
I think it’s obvious this is just another case of the UK having no spine and lots of double standards. The Jury didn’t find Mr. Shah (The Muslim) guilty because they were simply scared of being called racist or upsetting the Muslim community, well the hard-line nut case elements of the Muslim Community. Can someone remind me why that part of the Muslim community actually counts anyway? It’s a complete joke, the Atheist shouldn’t have been arrested in the first place and the Muslm should’ve been find more and then locked up because he was obviously talking about killing people brought about by his religious beliefs.
Where’s the spine of the country? Where’s the fairness? We have a system of Political correctness that ties our hands when the matters of religion or race come up, which leads to people like Mr. Shah getting off lightly while Mr. Taylor got a harsher sentence when he shouldn’t have even been to court. The Politicians wonder why the people have no faith in them, the Judicial system or the Police force? And also why national pride is almost non-existent? It’s about time this rubbish PC and Religious hatred law bollocks was dropped, it’s obvious now it isn’t working, never has and never will, in fact it’s having the opposite effect of what it was intended.
If you don’t want your religion questioning then I suggest you grow a thicker skin. If you don’t like living here then I suggest you move to a country that shares you religious, social and moral values.
