The Law is an Ass and anti-Christian

There has been a spate of legal decisions recently that disgust and despair Christians throughout the land. A judgement against a couple wanting to adopt was prevented because of their opposition to the couple’s views on homosexual behaviour. It was said they would ‘infect’ the child with Christian morals.

The most recent case is against Bideford Council where the Secular Society and a former councillor claimed that the saying of prayers as the first item on the agenda was degrading and insulting to non-Christians even though attendance was not compulsory.

Many of the recent legal judgments that discriminate against Christians were based on considerations that failed to take account of Christianity’s involvement in the Law of the Land such as the Oaths of office and the Common Prayer Book which is part of Government Legislation.  Indeed more recently they have said, incorrectly, that Christianity has no authority in the Law and Government.

Our Judges seem to be left wing wets, probably appointed during Blair’s rule, who set out to be ‘fair’ to the underdog and pursue the agenda that some have more rights than others but ignore the fact that our whole legal system was established upon the Judaeo/Christian principles and it is on those principles that they should interpret the law.

Tradition is an important function in the performance of our institutions. Whether anyone disagrees should not significantly cause traditions to be overthrown. Otherwise offence might be caused by walking past a poster outside a Church.

  2. The appellation 'Christian' does not give the odd bigot the right to veil their prejudices in piety! It would be lovely to read of Christians complaining about civil rights, about the oppression of the poor, about supporting the widowed, the orphaned, or hear about how they are washing the feet of others etc. or that some whining B&B owners, so intent on upholding the word of God, thought more about Matt 5:41, rather than running off to court, wanting to uphold their petty hatreds and pretend it's piety. But no, it is the usual cheap piety and righteousness of gunning for the queers - it costs little and doesn't challenge the lives of your average pew filling Christian.

    Christianity DOESN'T and NEVER HAD authority in the Law and Government! It was the Church of England - and before that of Rome - that informed such authority. And since both are political creations, they cannot be said to be 'Christianity' per se as each is only a part. Indeed via such law, one outlawed the other!

    Secular, liberal democracies are much fairer - and oddly enough socially moral - than religion led legislation. Keep religion out of our laws!

    Oddly enough such law protects Christians, far more than the reverse. It is just in the present keen desire for the inverted pride of victimhood a few bigots like to play the martyr - knowing that it costs little and often gives them a taste of cheap celebrity.
