Priests Who Wear Collar At Risk of Attack

Saudi Arabia?  Tajikistan? No – England:

Members of the clergy are being advised to take off their dog collars when they are on their own, to reduce the risk of being attacked.

National Churchwatch, which provides personal safety advice, says vicars are attacked more often than professions such as GPs and probation officers.

The organisation’s Nick Tolson said all clergy should consider the advice, including the Archbishop of Canterbury.

In the past decade, five vicars have been murdered.

And a 2001 academic study also found that 12% of clergy had suffered some form of violence.

In a survey of 90 London clergy Mr Tolson carried out last year, nearly half said they had been attacked in the previous 12 months.

One vicar, from Willesden, north-west London, said his vicarage had been machine-gunned – but still did not believe he had experienced violence.

I don’t know about you – but I would consider being machine-gunned as experiencing violence.  Its like these liberal twits in the C of E WANT to be gunned down.

But just what are they trying to hide in this little factoid:

 Canon Michael Ainsworth, 57, was set upon by three Asian youths shouting anti-Christian abuse when he confronted them for rowdy behaviour outside St George-in-the-East church in Shadwell, leaving him with two black eyes and cuts and bruises.

His wife, Janina Ainsworth, 56, took Palm Sunday services yesterday after Canon Ainsworth was re-admitted to hospital for his injuries. She said: “It is obvious that it does contain a religious element.

Asian yoooofs?  Chinese?  Japanese?  Mongolian?  Well, we do get some idea about the meaning of Asian from the vicar’s wife:

“Normally community relations here are very good. We have had very strong messages of support from the East London Mosque and Tower Hamlets Mosque with whom we’ve got good relations.

“Clearly the Muslim community is very shocked. These individuals were under the influence and this was a random act.”

Now why would the mosques be sending messages of support?  Perhaps Asian is code for Pakistani?  Clearly its code for Muslim.  But the whole thing wasn’t really a surprise:

Gravestones in nearby St Dunstan’s Church in Stepney are also regularly vandalised and locals say drink and drugs problems, combined with religious differences, fuel the attacks.

Parishioner Susan Crocker said: “It is not out of the blue, they broke the glass last Easter – it’s a recurrent problem.”

At this point I am almost certain that I will see St. Paul’s converted into a mosque before I kick the bucket.  They will probably leave Westminster Abby alone as some sort of English history museum, but there won’t be any crosses or anything “Christian” allowed in there.

England is lost as a Western, Christian country.

UK Police – 17,000 Women Subject to “Honor” Abuse a Year

Each and every year in just Britain – at least according to the Association of Chief Police Officers:

Up to 17,000 women in Britain are being subjected to “honour” related violence, including murder, every year, according to police chiefs.

It warns that the number of girls falling victim to forced marriages, kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings and even murder by relatives intent on upholding the “honour” of their family is up to 35 times higher than official figures suggest.

The crisis, with children as young as 11 having been sent abroad to be married,………..

Yes – you read that right.  11 year old girls being sent to Bangladesh and Pakistan to become “brides”.  Beatings and Murders occurring in Britain every day.  And then the Archbishop of Canterbury has the gall to come out and say that Britain will need to make some accommodation with sharia law?  It seems like this is already happening:

Women who have been taken overseas to be married against their will are now being rescued on an almost daily basis. The Government’s Forced Marriage Unit (FMU) handled approximately 400 cases last year – 167 of them leading to young Britons being helped back to the UK to escape unwanted partners overseas.

So where is the outraged voice of global feminism?  Can you imagine the outcry if the headlines were “17,000 Blacks subject to Abuse Every Year by Whites”?  And this is  just Britain.  What about France and Germany and Sweden and all the other countries with huge Muslim populations that they are afraid of offending?

Just as a heartbreaking example:

The human cost of honour crime was vividly captured in a haunting video message from murdered Banaz Mahmood, who revealed how her own father had tried to kill her after she abandoned her arranged marriage and fell in love with another man. In the grainy message she told how he plied her with brandy – the first time she had ever drunk alcohol – pulled the curtains and asked her to turn around.

The 19-year-old fled, but less than a month after making the grainy video on a mobile phone, Banaz was dead. Her naked body was found buried in a yard in Birmingham in 2006, more than 100 miles from her London home. She had been raped and tortured by men hired by her uncle to kill her. Mahmood’s father, uncle and one of her killers were sentenced to a total of 60 years in jail for the murder.

Just what kind of uncle hires thugs to rape, torture, and murder his niece?

HillaryCare Preview 977 – 2 years for a Hearing Aid

But it will be free, free, free. And since you can’t hear anything it won’t be like you will know what’s happening, right?
clipped from www.telegraph.co.uk

Patients across the country are waiting more than two years for a hearing aid, and up to five years to have old-fashioned equipment replaced by modern technology.

Almost 50,000 people, many of them elderly, are stuck on NHS waiting lists and 10 primary care trusts have admitted to delays of more than a year for patients in need of their first hearing aid.

A spokesman for the Department of Health said: “We acknowledge that audiology waiting times in parts of the country are too high. That is why we recently published a national framework which sets out the tools the local NHS needs to transform this service.”

UK Government Plans 2 Wind Turbines for Every Mile of Shorline

Its hidden down at the end, but the ugly little fact about wind power is down there. You must have some backup power plant (like coal or natural gas or nuclear {GASP!}) because you can’t have 100% reliance on wind power. At least if you want electricity all the time.

clipped from news.bbc.co.uk
There could be more than two offshore wind turbines per mile of UK coastline under plans being set out by ministers.

Wind farm

Business Secretary John Hutton says he wants to open up British seas to allow enough new turbines – up to 7,000 – to power all UK homes by the year 2020.
He acknowledged “it is going to change our coastline”, but said the issue of climate change was “not going away”.
“It is going to change our coastline, yes for sure. There is no way of making that shift to a low carbon technology without there being change and without that change being visible and evident to people.
The other choice was, he said, whether it was “easier to have these developments offshore rather than onshore”.
Asked what would happen if there was no wind for a few days, Mr Hutton said that was why there had to be a mix of energy sources – including nuclear power – to cover for calmer weather periods.
Wind turbines have proved to be controversial onshore and offshore.

Club Tells Pensioner to Break Wind Outside

It is good to see that his men-only club doesn’t mind him farting up a storm.

clipped from www.telegraph.co.uk
A retired bus driver who has drunk in the same social club for 20 years has been told to step outside when he breaks wind, because his flatulence is “disgusting” other customers.
Maurice Fox, 77, was handed a formal letter of warning from his club committee after “several complaints” from patrons.
“I do get a bit windy – I am an old fart now,” he said.
“They can be a bit loud at times. If I’ve got time and know they are coming I pop into the porch inside the door,” he told the South Devon Herald Express newspaper.
Mr Fox said that he had tried to calm his flatulence by switching from cider to bitter, but admitted that the six pints of Bass he drinks a day still leave him feeling gassy.
He added that his problem causes less of a fuss of in the men-only environment of another local club, Palace Place.
“I can let go when I like at the Palace. It’s more relaxed, and so am I,” he told the newspaper.

The Abomination of American Imperialism

I take no joy in writing these words, but America’s attempts at imperialism are so half-hearted, so feeble, so stupefyingly inept, that we might as well hoist le Tricolore, print all our legal documents in French, and subjugate ourselves to our superiors in Paris.Maybe being forced under penalty of death to drink their lighter-fluid-flavored wines and laugh at Jerry Lewis movies will teach us how an empire is SUPPOSED to be run.

The venerable Archbishop of Canterbury has criticized America’s imperialism, saying that the United States wields its power in a way that is worse than Britain during its imperial heyday.
I find myself agreeing with him.
Britain TOTALLY kicked ass at imperialism! They had subject nations all around the globe. Back when England actually owned a set of bollocks, billions of primitive brown & yellow peoples learned to speak English, dress in suits, and drink tea instead of cow urine.Ok, so that last one wasn’t necessarily a step up, but I think I make my point. England RULED! They were naming entire races of people “Indians” and subjugating the crap out of them centuries before the first Kennedy crashed his Oldsmobile into Plymouth Rock.
How have we fallen so far? Our heritage is rooted deeply in the tyrannical stock of our jackbooted British ancestors, yet when Americans crusade across the ocean to liberate their little brown brothers… they actually liberate the PEOPLE! What incompetence! First you liberate their land, their cattle, their gold,… and a few of the comlier wenches (strictly for purposes of pleasure, mind you, not to actually – heaven forbid – breed with the filthy savages), THEN you start getting around to tossing out a bone or two of political liberty. IF they can prove their worth through prolonged armed resistance.Or dressing in diapers & letting themselves be clubbed into bloody pulp. Either one.
Yet what have we so-called “imperialist” Americans accomplished in Iraq? NOTHING! The Iraqis can vote! They can own property! They don’t even have to bow and avert their eyes when an American walks by! They don’t even have to bow and avert their eyes when an American walks by! Why, the arrogant sand-mongrels aren’t even possessed of sufficient decency or gratitude to make English their country’s official language – AND WE’RE NOT FORCING THE RAG-HEADS TO DO IT!  That whirring sound you hear is Queen Victoria spinning in her grave at around the same speed as a NASCAR motor at redline.

Hillary for President – of Canada, Britain, or Italy

Its her turn. She stayed married to that horn dog. Now VOTE FOR HER!

clipped from www.texasrainmaker.com
Reminiscent of John Kerry’s “foreign leaders love me” moment, Bill Clinton is now talking up a poll showing Hillary is favored… in Canada, Britain and Italy.
“In every country, without question, if you take out the undecided, she had the absolute majority,” Clinton said.
Then I say, go for it. Send her to one of those countries and let her highness reign. I will fully support her campaign… in Canada, Britain or Italy.
I’m sure I’d like her more too if she was in another country peddling her socialism.
