Abortion ship blocked as pressure builds

Pressure to legalise abortion is growing world-wide, thanks to international funding led by financier George Soros, Christian Voice has discovered.

The billionaire is behind moves to repeal a pro-life constitutional amendment in the Republic of Ireland.  He is almost certainly also involved with a Dutch abortion boat run by the ‘Women on Waves’ group.

The financier also funded the presidential campaign of Republican contender John Kasich.  The Ohio Governor repaid Soros by vetoing the state’s ‘fetal heartbeat’ bill.

Today, news broke that police in Guatemala have blocked a yacht offering abortion pills.  Accordingly, Women on Waves, run by Dutch national Rebecca Gomperts, may not disembark the vessel.  Police are also preventing anyone boarding.  President Jimmy Morales deployed the army.  A spokesman said it would defend “human life and the laws of our country” by preventing the group from carrying out abortions.

Reuters reports that the abortifacient dispensed ‘combines two medicines, mifepristone and misoprostol’.  The news agency said: ‘It is more than 90 percent effective for women up to 10 weeks pregnant’.

The boat takes women out to international waters to administer the drug.  It only docks in countries where abortion is illegal.  But it is as much a publicity stunt as a ‘pro-choice’ facility.

Where does the money come from?

Women on Waves is coy about where the money comes from.  Nevertheless, this document from a court dispute gives some details.  It says Women on Waves ‘has received grants from organizations including the Global Fund for Women (United States), the Mondrian Foundation (Netherlands), and the Mama Cash Foundation (Netherlands)’.

To add to the mix, the Dutch humanist HIVOS group gave money towards a film about Women on Waves.  Mama Cash, a source of money for anti-Christian projects worldwide, was also listed.  The Soros Open Society says it provides joint funding with HIVOS.  Where you find HIVOS you will usually find Soros.  The world of antichrist funding groups is highly incestuous.

Moreover, a highly revealing website for women’s ngos in Kyrgystan confirms the point.  It lists Hivos, Soros Foundation-Kyrgyzstan, Open Society Foundation and Mama Cash as donors.  Joining them are the California-based  Global Fund For Women, the American Hunt Alternatives Fund and Urgent Action Fund.  The latter always pops up promoting abortion or feminism in the developing world.  Lastly, the Democracy Commission of the Embassy of the USA and the European Union help fund the Kyrgystan feminists.  President Trump and Brexiteers kindly note.

Campaign to repeal Ireland’s Eighth Amendment

Meanwhile, abortionists are agitating in Ireland.   The Republic passed the pro-life ‘Eighth Amendment’ of the Constitution of Ireland in 1983 by a two to one majority.  The Amendment gives explicit recognition to the right to life of an unborn child. Accordingly, it effectively introduced a constitutional ban on abortion.

But there is pressure to repeal the Amendment.  Activists feel emboldened by the Republic’s vote to allow ‘gay marriage’ in 2015.  They believe the times they are a-changing enough to secure a majority to scrap ‘the Eighth’. Nevertheless, there is hostility to them.  Strangely enough, an LGBT group is among their opponents.

As part of the campaign, a group of girls who do not appear to have done much work are calling for a ‘strike of women.’  No doubt the mainstream media will give ‘Strike4Repeal‘ huge publicity on 8th March 2017.

But who is funding Strike4Repeal? LifeSiteNews reports: Soros’ New York City-based Open Foundations document focuses on repealing the pro-life Eighth Amendment’.  Consequently, he will give ‘heavy funding for the Abortion Rights Campaign, Amnesty International Ireland, and the Irish Family Planning Association.  Above all, Soros intends they will  “work collectively on a campaign to repeal Ireland’s (Eighth) constitutional amendment.”

Soros fingerprints

But does Strike4Repeal receive Soros money?  Firstly, any group like that needs money to carry out its campaign.  Secondly, there are parallels between the modus operandi of Strike4Repeal and previous Soros agitations.  He funded Pussy Riot and Femen who adopt similar poses (albeit bare-breasted in the case of Femen) and shock tactics.  He was behind protests against Donald Trump’s inauguration.  Thirdly, a Soros’ foundations document says ‘legalization of same-sex “marriage” presents “valuable and timely opportunities to advance the (pro-abortion) campaign.”’  Fourthly, it just has Soros fingerprints all over it.

One thing we can be certain of.  Pro-abortion movements, like pro-sodomy ngos, do not spring up in countries out of the blue.  They are rarely indigenous.  There is always money from external affluent western ‘philanthropists’ behind them.  If it is not Soros it is Hivos, or Mama Cash.  If not them, Ford Foundation or Gates Foundation step in.  Or Carnegie.  Or the Rockefeller or Tides Foundaton.  Similarly, the Atlantic Philanthropies may contribute.  Or the Gulbenkian Foundation.

Prayer points

Please pray at this time particularly for Guatemala and the Republic of Ireland to stand firm against the abortionist assault.  The Bible says:  Proverbs 16:12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

We read that only Christ will bring in perfect government, but that does not mean earthly governments should not try to rule by God’s standards:  Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 

As to the antichrist NGOs, the Bible says:  Proverbs 25:5 Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.

The Bible says of king Ahaz: 2Chr 28:3  Moreover he burnt incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

The passage is speaking about child sacrifice.  Abortion is our modern version of it. Many nations including Great Britain are now polluted because of this shedding of innocent blood.  Israel did the same, as the Psalmist declares:  Psalm 106:38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.  So pray also for repentance in those nations who have legalised this abomination, for the slaughter to stop.

AFC Bournemouth hosts gay youth fundraiser

AFC Bournemouth is hosting a fundraiser for Space Youth Project, which promotes homosexuality among adolescents.

AFC Bournemouth is hosting a fundraiser for Space Youth Project, which promotes homosexuality among adolescents.

AFC Bournemouth is hosting a fundraiser this weekend for a group promoting homosexuality among adolescents.

Three-course dinner

The event, raising money for Space Youth Project, will take place on Saturday evening in the Balfour Suite of AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium.

Tickets are a cool £60 per person and VIP speakers are promised. There will be an auction. AFC Bournemouth have stumped up some memorabilia for that. And of course the punters will be treated to a ‘delicious 3 course dinner’.

Space Youth Project, according to its website, appears to exist in order to advise confused adolescents that a transient homosexual phase is indicative of a permanent ‘orientation’.

It is in the business of messing up children’s lives, in other words. AFC Bournemouth funds this organisation through its ‘nominated charity’ policy.

Space Youth Project encourages adolescents to see themselves as homosexual or 'trans'

Space Youth Project encourages adolescents to see themselves as homosexual or transsexual

Only last weekend the football club sponsored an event at Bournemouth University promoting homosexuality to school children. Space Youth Project also gave money towards it.  February has been designated LGBT History Month.  It is a prime opportunity for homosexual teachers to engage in classroom-scale grooming.

Six Christian activists attended, making up a quarter of the audience. Blame for the low attendance fell on one Michael Tonge.  He was accused of not organising it well enough.  Equally, our man on the spot reported the organisers didn’t really want to publicise it too widely. They were frightened the public might turn up, he says. He also tells us it was a dreary event. Largely ‘academics talking to each other’, he says.

Among the speakers was one Jenny White. She described lesbian sexual activities in graphic and embarrassing detail. Homosexual apologists try to say homosexuality is just about ‘relationships’.  Our mole suggests that, yet again, the Jenny’s contribution shows it is really all about sex.

Our man on the spot also had the joy of meeting a certain Bournemouth University lecturer. On a previous occasion, this man told him how he wanted to take a pro-gay message around every youth football team in the town. Thanks to the good sense of the great majority of coaches, this scheme never took off. The issue of a tiny minority of football coaches grooming young players for sexual abuse has of course been in the news recently.

The ‘curse of gay pride’

Tom Daley flopped at the 2016 Rio Olympics after flaunting his homosexuality in the media.

Also this coming Saturday, AFC Bournemouth’s actual football team are in action in the Premier League.  AFCB travel to the Hawthorns to meet West Bromwich Albion. The Cherries have yet to win in 2017.  Moreover, they appear to be heading into a relegation battle.

Out of the teams below them, Hull City are improving under new manager Marco Silva.  Swansea City are on a roll, having won four of their previous six matches. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are overdue for the renowned Sam Allardyce ‘bounce’.

In the corporate world, Tesco and Co-op Bank floundered seriously since promoting gay pride. Diver Tom Daley flopped at the Rio Olympics. That followed prayer that God would judge him for using his celebrity status to flaunt his newly-found homosexuality. Rugby player Gareth Thomas has fared little better since ‘coming out’ and promoting sodomy to children.

AFC Bournemouth have made, some say, bad management decisions. Bringing the curse of gay pride upon themselves by promoting Space Youth Project and gay events for schools may turn out to be the worst of all.

Activism Marketing and the Transgender Doll

The world's first 'transgender doll' is an example of activism marketing

The world’s first ‘transgender doll’ is an example of Activism Marketing

The world’s first ‘transgender doll’ is appearing at this week’s New York Toy Fair, according to the BBC.

There have been thousands of tweets about the Tonner Doll Company product. The Twitter-sphere is divided between those supporting and those ridiculing the stunt.

So how do you make a ‘transgender doll’? The manufacturers say: ‘This is an 18″ doll, much like that of every other child doll out there.’ ‘The doll itself is hard plastic and vinyl and no specific parts, much like all the dolls we have created …’ Pictures show the doll is wearing girls’ clothing.

Modelled on activist

In fact there is only one thing that makes this a ‘transgender doll’. Its facial features are modelled on a teenage activist born a boy, now living as a female. That is why the doll has a slightly masculine face.

Jazz Jennings shot to fame, says the BBC, after an interview he did about gender dysphoria. Popular US TV presenter Barbara Walters conducted the interview.

Jazz Jennings was only six years old when he went on US television to talk about his gender dysphoria. He is now pretending to be a woman.

Jazz Jennings was only six years old when he went on US television to talk about his gender dysphoria. He is now pretending to be a woman.

We learn from Jazz’s reaction that he is being paid royalties for the doll’s use of his image: “I love her. A portion of my proceeds will be donated to help trans youth who are struggling.”

He goes on: “Of course it is still just a regular girl doll because that’s exactly what I am: a regular girl!” Now 16, Jazz says: “I heavily insisted that I WAS a girl.”

But Jazz, you are not. Protest and insist all you want, but you are and always will be genetically a man.

And Jazz, the doll, Tonner Dolls and the story itself are influencing our cultural environment. They change our perceptions, little by little. Jazz hopes it will “place transgender people in a positive light” In other words, the doll is a campaigning stunt. And it can only add to the adverse pressures on children who may be confused or struggling with gender dysphoria (not liking your gender).

Virtue Signalling

Starbucks announced they are taking on 10,000 refugeesStarbucks announced they are taking on 10,000 refugees - that's Activism Marketing'

Starbucks announced they are taking on 10,000 refugees – that’s Activism Marketing in action

There is another dimension to this. Recently Starbucks said it would take on 10,000 refugees. They made the announcement after President Trump’s ‘travel ban’. US taxi firm Lyft joined the bandwagon. It told the Twitter world it would donate $1 million to the anti-Christian American Civil Liberties Union. There are many more examples. Adidas and Nike praised the contribution of immigrant workers. AirBnB said it would give them free accommodation.

Getting away from refugees, card manufacturers boast of the trees they are planting. Kenco Coffee is training young gang members in Honduras to be coffee farmers. Dove portrays ‘normal’ women rather than models in its Dove Campaign for Real Beauty. Even back in 2015, Coca-Cola removed its logo from its in the Middle East during Ramadan. It replaced it with a message that read “Labels are for cans, not people.” Sales went up.

As we went to press, Apple did a bit of transgender promoting having previously joined the refugee ban protests.

For years we have had celebrities indulging in “virtue signalling”. Bob Geldof wanted to ‘Feed the World’. Singer Lily Allen apologised to a refugee in the Calais jungle. Bono too has been to refugee camps and organised ‘Live8′. He was rewarded with a seat at last weekend’s Munich Security Conference.

Activism Marketing

Mathew Dixon of Hudson Walker: coined the term 'Activism Marketing'

Mathew Dixon of Hudson Walker: coined the term ‘Activism Marketing’

But we needed another term for brand promotion on the back of social activism.  Mathew Dixon, director at brand specialist Hudson Walker, has now coined the term ‘Activism Marketing’ to describe the phenomenon. “It is clear a major change is afoot. Welcome to uber-politicised retail. Forget Sex. Activism is what will make or break a brand in 2017,” he says.

Dixon goes on: “The real challenge around activism marketing is how much to actually promote the philanthropic aspect to a campaign – how much can you tell everyone how generous you are, without it looking insincere? But likewise, what is the point of making a grand gesture or donation and not letting the world know about it? After all, a business has to sell product at the end of the day. The answer probably comes from how deeply embedded these values are within the company culture.”

Alex Holder, writing in the Guardian, is less generous: “Companies are now attempting to outdo each other with major acts of generosity, but there’s a catch; they’ll do good as long as they can make sure their customers know about it. There is no room for humility when a brand does a good deed.”

Starbucks and AirBnB “are helping refugees because it sells milky lattes and cheap holiday accommodation”.

Holder quotes marketing expert Will Fowler, creative director of Headspace. “Our activism is currently mediated by brands,” he says. “Brands are allowing people to pat themselves on the back without them personally having to sacrifice anything.”

Divisive

There is certainly a market into which activism marketing can sell. We were deluged with hostile tweets after our article on AFC Bournemouth. Many tweeters thought it was just great that a football club should finance a youth gay group. Many supported transgender photographer Steve ‘Sophie’ Cook. Those people are Tonner Doll’s market.  Buy this doll instead of that doll and a liberal-minded parent can be rewarded with a warm, fuzzy, smug feeling.

But for companies, hazards await. An activism marketing campaign is of its nature divisive. You have to be sure your market is in tune with that activist cause. Starbucks probably have it right. They reckon not many latte drinkers care about the indigenous labour-base. But get it wrong, and you can alienate as many people as you attract.

We can but pray Tonner Dolls will find that out.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Civil Partnership confusion

Charles Keidan and Rebecca Steinfeld are challenging the Civil Partnership Act

Charles Keidan and Rebecca Steinfeld are challenging the Civil Partnership Act

The UK Government’s Civil Partnership law has been thrown into confusion by a case heard today in the Court of Appeal.

Charles Keidan and Rebecca Steinfeld brought a case demanding the right to enter into a Civil Partnership.  Currently, under the Civil Partnership Act, only homosexuals can apply.  Or to be more specific, unrelated persons of the same sex.

Civil Partnership Act

Civil Partners are granted all the rights of marriage. They are free of inheritance tax on property which passes from one to the other on the death of a party to the ‘partnership’.  They are also excused from being compelled to testify against each other.  In general, neither can be compelled to give evidence against the other. That exemption could be crucial in a sexual abuse case involving a third party, for example.

The Act was meant to convey all the benefits of marriage. At the time it was passed, the Government of the day, under Tony Blair, gave a number of undertakings.  Among them was an assurance that marriage for homosexual couples was out of the question.  Heterosexuals had marriage, homosexuals had civil partnership, they said.

However, one parliament cannot bind a successor.  David Cameron’s Conservatives legislated for ‘gay marriage’ in 2012.  And of course all Tony Blair’s promises counted for nothing.  Nor did the Tories do away with civil partnerships in the process.  So homosexuals now have two options for state recognition of their relationship and heterosexuals just one.  That is what Charles Keidan and Rebecca Steinfeld argued was unfair.  And the judges agreed it breaches their right to a family life.

Government considering their options

Nevertheless, the couple did not secure a ruling that the situation was unlawful.  The Government are considering their options at the moment.  They are looking into the whole situation of civil partnerships in the light of gay marriage.  That saved them.

But as Rebecca Steinfeld said after the hearing, the matter cannot stand as it is.  There is an inequality.  So what should we pray the Government do?

They can hardly repeal the Civil Partnership Act.  Numerous homosexual couples took advantage of it.  Most believied it was all they were going to get.  Some have ‘converted’ their partnerships into ‘gay marriage’.  But others reject the symbolism of marriage.  Perhaps they are more astute.

But that leaves heterosexual couples who perhaps don’t care for the ‘patriarchy’ of marriage out on a limb. if Parliament extends civil partnerships to them, the Government will lose millions in inheritance tax.  And what about spinster sisters living together?  Should they include them as well?

What should we pray for?

We are like the travellers trying to reach a West Country town from deep in the Devon lanes.  They asked a local man what route they should take.  ‘Well’, he said, ‘If I was you, I wouldn’t be a-starting from ‘ere’.

Our Government instituted wickedness with the Civil Partnership Act.  They made matters worse with the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act.  Anything they do now will devalue marriage further.  So what can we pray for except wholesale repentance?  Leave your comment below, please!

Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. (KJV)

Merkel says Islam not source of terror

German Chancellor Angela Merkel addresses the 2017 Munich Security Conference

German Chancellor Angela Merkel addresses the 2017 Munich Security Conference

Angela Merkel has claimed Islam is not a source of terror, according to the Daily Express.

The German Chancellor was speaking at the annual Munich Security Conference yesterday (Sunday 19th February 2017).  Furthermore, Mrs Merkel said the EU has a duty to accept even more refugees.

US Vice President Mike Pence and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov were in the audience.  Warmongers Madeleine Albright (US), Jens Stoltenberg (NATO) and Sir Michael Fallon (UK) also attended.  Microsoft founder Bill Gates was there.  Even singer and activist Bono popped up.  Here is the full list of participants. Wikipedia describes the  conference as ‘the most important independent forum for the exchange of views by international security policy decision-makers’.

Islam ‘not source of terrorism’: Merkel

Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif

Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif

Inevitably, Angela Merkel also said Islam is not a source of terrorism.  She told the international leaders Muslim states need to be involved in the fight against terrorism.  So does Russia, she said.

It is obvious Russia needs to be involved.  But Muslim states are financing and arming terrorists, according to Patrick Coburn in the Independent.   Leaked US documents show Hilary Clinton knew about Saudi Arabia and Qatar financing Islamic State.

Embarrassingly, of course, the UK, US and France have also been supporting jihadists in Syria.

Unsurprisingly, Pakistan’s Minister of Defence, Khawaja Muhammad Asif, agreed with Mrs Merkel.  He said: ‘Terrorism is not synonymous to any religion. Terrorists aren’t Christians or Muslims or Buddhists or Hindus. They are terrorists, they are criminals.’

Asif went on: ‘I have heard the term “Islamic terrorism” maybe a dozen times since morning.  President Trump uses it frequently.  This is fuelling Islamophobia because terrorism is being branded as Islamic terrorism.’

Quran and Hadith endorse terrorism

Churches in Syria have been looted and damaged by jihadists

Churches in Syria have been looted and damaged by jihadists

The first problem is, the overwhelming majority of terrorists are Muslim.  Minister Asif may say ‘more than ninety percent of individuals killed by terrorists are Muslims.’  What he did not say was this only reveals the factional squabbles in Islam.  Al Qaeda and Islamic State are Sunni Muslim.  When not persecuting Christians they direct their violence at those they see as Muslim heretics.  That means Shia Muslims, mainly, frequently bombed in their mosques.

The second problem is, Muslim scriptures actively endorse terrorism.  Unlike the Bible’s verses of war, the Quran’s and Hadith’s are open-ended.  They are not reined in by historical context in the text.

For example:  Surah 2:191. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; … 216. Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.

Surah 4:74: ‘Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.’  76: ‘Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…’

Perpetual war

Members of the Religion of Peace protesting in the 'House of War'

Members of the Religion of Peace protesting in the ‘House of War’ – London, as it happens

Surah 5:33. The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land.   That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

Do not forget, Islam divides the world into two.  Nations following Islam and Sharia are the House of Peace (Dar es Salaam).  Those not following Muslim rule are Dar al Harb – House of War.  Every unbeliever is waging war with Allah.   Every Muslim in every nation of the House of War is, or should be, at war with it.

We can find verses of peace in the Quran.  Scholars say these date mostly to Mohammed’s time of happiness with his first wife Khadijah.  But there is a principle of abrogation in Islam.  Earlier peaceful verses are abrogated by later violent verses.  And there are very few of them to start with.

One informative website says: ‘Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad’s own martial legacy, along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the Quran, have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.’

Islam and crime

The problem is not only terrorism.  Many criminals have turned to Jesus Christ and been delivered from a life a crime.  That is because Christianity demands repentance and holiness.  Islam does not, possibly because the god of Islam, ‘Allah’ – ‘the god’, is not the Almighty God of Christianity.   My video (click here) destroys the myth that Allah and the LORD are the same being.

To become a Muslim, it is only necessary to recite a declaration about Allah and Mohammed.  It follows one can be a good Muslim and a criminal.  Add in the contempt in Islam towards ‘kuffir’ or ‘kaffir’ (unbelievers) and the stage is set for all manner of crime.

Peter Springare

Peter Springare

Sweden has welcomed in probably more Muslims per head of population than anywhere.  As a result, Malmo has seen a crime explosion from Muslim migrants.  Sweden’s Prime Minister was forced to deny the crime wave was Muslim-fueled.  The denial came after police officer Peter Springare claimed the majority of serious crimes in Örebro were committed by migrants.

Journalist Ami Horowitz told Fox News people high up in the Swedish government are deliberately covering up the figures.   He said they are protecting perpetrators of rapes to protect ‘vulnerable’ migrants.

During an explosive interview, Mr Horowitz claims the refugee violence crisis is out of control.  He says ‘European virtues’ have put a stop to any discussion on the statistics.  ‘From the onset of the refugee crisis, there was a surge in gun violence and rape.  The statistics were clear,’ he said.

Merkel is wrong

So Angela Merkel is wrong.  Islam is a source of terror and a cause of crime. Western governments are failing their citizens by denying that reality.  Are they inept and mistaken, or lying to us knowing the truth all along?

The Bible says:  Exodus 18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

Psalm 89:14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

Proverbs 24:3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

Isaiah 59:4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

AFC Bournemouth report Christian group for ‘hate crime’

AFC Bournemouth Photographer Steve Cook dressed up as 'Sophie'

Christian Voice Press Release – 14:45 hrs 18th February 2017

A premier league football club have accused a Christian group of ‘hate speech’.  The complaint follows an article highlighting their sponsorship of a homosexual event targeted at young people.

AFC Bournemouth have reported Christian Voice to Sussex Police and football’s ‘KickitOut’ pressure group.

AFCB’s action was disclosed by their photographer Steve Cook, now know as ‘Sophie’, in a tweet yesterday, Friday 17th.

Divisive Homosexual Event

Christian Voice drew attention to AFC Bournemouth’s sponsoring what they called a ‘divisive’ homosexual event being held in the town today (Saturday 18th February 2017).  The relegation strugglers are involved in the 2017 SchoolsOut’s LGBT History Month at Bournemouth University.

We also criticised the Club for funding a group which they say tries to convince adolescents they are gay – Space Youth Project.

But it is their refusal to accept that Bournemouth’s photographer, Steve Cook, is a woman which has drawn the particular ire of the South Coast outfit.  Click here for the online article.

AFC Bournemouth would close down free speech

We have yet to hear from Sussex Police.  We are puzzled in fact why AFCB would report us to Sussex rather than the Dorset force.

As to KickitOut, they have our full support in confronting racism.  But the fact is, they will only dilute their message if they start promoting deviant sexual behaviour.

Clearly there is a constant need to defend freedom of speech.  A corporate body like Bournemouth Football Club must not even think it can use the law to shut down those who would criticise its sponsorship policy.

This ministry will continue to criticise those who promote homosexuality to young people.  We shall also continue to refer to ‘trans’ persons by their God-given gender.  Post-truth is not the Christian world.

Bournemouth AFC in gay propaganda storm

A Premiership Football Club is promoting homosexual propaganda to children, Christian Voice has discovered.

Relegation strugglers Bournemouth AFC are co-sponsoring a 2017 SchoolsOut’s LGBT ( Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transsexual) History Month event to be held this Saturday (18th February).

The other main sponsor is Bournemouth University.  The event is called ‘OUTing the past’

Yet another sponsor of the Schools Out event is a homosexual contact group called Space Youth Project.

Space Youth Project, according to its website, appears to exist in order to advise confused adolescents that a transient homosexual phase is indicative of a permanent ‘orientation’. It is in the business of messing up children’s lives, in other words.   Bournemouth AFC funds this organisation through its ‘nominated charity’ policy.

February, of course, is LGBT History Month.  It is a time when parents should be watching even more carefully than usual what is happening in their children’s schools. The SchoolsOut LGBT history month website lists Labour’s Angela Eagle MP among its patrons.  It has friends in high places.

Saturday’s event has speakers such as Cheryl Morgan, probably not his real name, trying to find ‘Trans Women in the Ancient World’.  Lesbian activist Jenny White will speak on what lesbians do in bed.  Actor Stephen Ashfield is discussing ‘the history of our community’, as if homosexuals are a race apart.  Schools Out intern Lizzie Wallis will kick off proceedings praising Schools Out for promoting homosexuality to vulnerable schoolchildren.  Obviously, she wants compulsory sex education.

The description of the event says: ‘OUTing the Past: Bournemouth is a free public event that along with other festival hubs around the country will present a one day showcase of historical or archival readings and personal testimonies that uncover the rich, and often lost, history of the LGBT community.

Bournemouth AFC refuse to comment

There is no reference to AFCB’s sponsorship of the militant Schools Out event on the Club’s website.

Bournemouth AFC Equality Partnerships Executive Ben Abberstein refused to disclose how much money the club gave Space Youth Project last financial year and how much it plans to give this year.

There is plainly some embarrassment among the Bournemouth AFC top brass that their sponsorship of these activities has come in for public scrutiny.  Or perhaps there is indecision over just how to defend their position.  Either way, we can be sure the decision, or indecision, originates with Bournemouth AFC chairman Jeff Mostyn.

The news has been full of how football coaches have sexually groomed young boys. We fully expected the Club to respond to suggestions that it is financing projects – no doubt run by adults – which could be viewed as a form of sexual grooming.

Transgender photographer

It gets worse. Last season, Bournemouth AFC’s official photographer was Steve Cook. The twice married father-of-three has now decided he is a woman. Mr Cook is now calling himself Sophie.

According to the Bournemouth Echo, the first ‘transgender woman’ in UK football has been ‘totally accepted’ by players and fans after decades of feeling – you will never guess – ‘trapped in the wrong body’. But the truth is, despite taking female hormones, nothing will ever stop ‘Sophie’ being genetically a man.

And again, this is a time when gender confusion is being promoted in the classroom. Four-year-olds are saying they feel ‘trapped in the wrong body’. Doctors are prescribing powerful hormone drugs to troubled adolescents to delay the onset of puberty.

For Bournemouth AFC to give even tacit endorsement of such unethical medical interventions is a disgrace.  It can only serve to add to the pressure on small children to jump on the fashionable transgender bandwagon.

Tesco, Co-op Bank and the Curse of Gay Pride

Tesco sponsored London Gay Pride in 2012. Disaster continues to dog the supermarket chain five years later.

Tesco sponsored London Gay Pride in 2012. Disaster continues to dog the supermarket chain five years later.

Tesco infamously sponsored the London Gay Pride March in July 2012.  The supermarket then endured a catastrophic few years. Christians staged a boycott. Tesco profits tumbled, new ventures went bust and they flouted planning laws. Tesco pulled out of the US after losses left their board red-faced. We reported ‘The curse of Gay Pride 2012 continues to dog Tesco‘.  Even this month, Tesco was caught out overcharging customers after promotions expired at the check-out but were still displayed on the shelves.

The Co-op Bank fared little better. They told Christian Voice in 2005 our custom was not wanted. We were at odds with their pro-gay ‘diversity’ policies. Than in 2012 the Co-op Bank sponsored no fewer than fifteen gay pride events all over the UK.

The ‘Ethical Bank’ were soon caught overcharging for mortgages. In 2012 the greedy Co-op failed to grab Lloyds Bank customer accounts, pulling out over financial irregularities.  In 2014 the pro-gay outfit lost a staggering £1.3 billion.

Their homosexual chairman resigned after he was caught doing drugs. Paul Flowers was filmed buying crack cocaine, crystal meth and ketamine.  The Co-op Bank has now put itself up for sale.

Meanwhile, in the world of sports, diver Tom Daley flopped at the 2016 Rio Olympics after using his celebrity status to promote homosexuality.

Another sportsman, rugby player Gareth Thomas, waited until his international career was well and truly over before announcing he was homosexual.  He is another sponsor of the Schools Out event in Bournemouth this Saturday. Thomas also sponsors LBGT History Month.

After ‘coming out’ he appeared in a truly repellent pose on the front cover of a homosexual magazine.  In 2015, Thomas took part in ‘Natural Born Winners’, a BBC televised challenge involving the notorious ‘Man versus Horse’ race.  The super-fit sporting giant and gay icon finished a dismal 401st out of 540 runners.

Bournemouth AFC in relegation battle

Maxim Demin owns Bournemouth AFC

Maxim Demin owns Bournemouth AFC

When they were promoted to the Premier League in May 2015, club owner Russian billionaire Maxim Demin threw a £300,000 party for the players in Las Vegas.

But that now seems a long time ago. Bournemouth AFC is currently in a relegation battle. They have six losses, one win (3-0 away to Swansea) and two draws from their last nine matches. The defeats include a 6-3 thumping by Everton and a 2-0 loss to Manchester City. They only recently lost by two goals to fellow-strugglers Crystal Palace and then to Hull City.

Winless in 2017, Bournemouth travel to West Bromwich later this month then visit Manchester United. Later in March they face West Ham and a resurgent Swansea City at home. On top of all that, Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn has given his full backing to manager Eddie Howe. A public vote of confidence from the chairman is usually regarded as the kiss of death for a failing manager.

The Curse of Gay Pride

The Bible says: Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

Prov 11:5b … The wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

The prophet Isaiah pronounces woe on those like Bournemouth AFC who turn good and evil upside down:

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!  21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

The Lord Jesus was not at all cool with those who corrupt children: Matt 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 

If Bournemouth AFC are relegated at the end of this season, the curse of gay pride will have fallen once more on a body corporate that thought it could mock God.

Beached whales were Orkney bonanza

We are all mortified, not to say mystified, by the stranded pilot whales in New Zealand.  But in Orkney some four thousand years ago, the people would have regarded such a beaching not as a tragedy but as a bounty from the sea.

No-one knows how whales manage to get themselves beached in the shallows.  It is a mystery.  One theory is that the lack of depth plays havoc with their sonar.

It is certainly a sad sight when great living creatures find themselves in such difficulties and we are powerless to help them.

One would have thought X (insert favoured figure) ‘millions of years of evolution’ would have sorted the problem out, but no.  Still the whales come.

Orkney – cradle of British civilisation

Neil Oliver with the foundations of A stone age temple on Orkney

Neil Oliver with the foundations of a stone age temple at Ness of Brodgar on Orkney

Last night (Thursday 9th Feb 2017) on BBC4, the TV archeologist Neil Oliver led a team uncovering Orkney’s neolithic past.  The programme was part of the series Britain’s Ancient Capital: Secrets of Orkney.  The first rule of archeology is this:  ‘Remember, these were people like us’.  Dr Oliver in particular pays great respect to the people of the past.  (He pays less deference to politicians of the present, particularly those of the SNP.  But let that pass.)

The Orcadians were pagans.  They worshipped the signs of the heavens and quite probably deified anything which was important to them, such as the sea and the weather.  They also kept large herds of cattle.  It is probable they viewed their cattle as a store of wealth, like African nomadic tribesmen today.

The foundations of their temples at the Ness of Brodgar were built over sacrifices of their cattle.  As a confirmation of the practice, building sacrifices into foundations is spoken of in the Bible.  Joshua prophesied that whoever would rebuild Jericho would bury two of his children in the foundations:

Joshua 6:26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.  (KJV)

Stone Age Orkney highly civilised

The Orcadians were not on the evidence found so far as depraved as Hiel the Bethelite, the Iron Age king who fulfilled the curse of Joshua in 1Kings 16:34 probably around 860 BC.

We have an image of Stone Age people grunting and shivering as they struggled to build a fire.  Secrets of Orkney has laid this canard to rest.  They were highly civilised people, wealthy, delighting in art, skilled shipbuilders and navigators, trading across the world, exchanging ideas.  The excavations on Orkney give us confidence in accounts of trade and technological advance in the Bible.  Bible people too really were people like us.

The programme last night also explained how the people of Orkney would have taken advantage of regular strandings of whales.  They took the meat and rendered the blubber.  The evidence shows they used the bones to make everything from needles to the internal structure of their boats.  The BBC iPlayer link is here if you want to watch on catch-up.

The whales’ contribution to the ancient Orkney economy may be scant consolation to those mourning the pilot whales in New Zealand.  Nevertheless, it might just add a tiny bit of perspective.  Perhaps the whales and their sad, mysterious death wish are there for our benefit.  Perhaps the good Lord graciously designed them like that.  We may be horrified at the thought of the Orcadians rushing to the sea shore to slaughter beached whales. But then again, Stone Age people might well view some of the things we take for granted in our civilisation today as barbarous.

Genesis 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Gen 9:3  Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

BBC’s Fake News over Refugee Ban

UN refugee camps are run by jihadists. A Muslim refugee ban makes sense.

UN refugee camps are run by jihadists. A Muslim refugee ban makes sense from a security point of view. But is it legal under the US Constitutional?

As a Federal Appeals Court rules against President Trump’s Refugee Ban, it has emerged that the BBC ran a fake news story on the issue.

The UK state broadcaster denied that Muslims were favoured over Christians.  This was a complete reversal of the truth.

The debate could impact on the UK’s own refugee policy.  The Home Secretary has just stopped the ‘Dubs’ child refugee programme.

US Court overturns Refugee Ban

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals said it would not block a ruling by a Seattle court that halted the President’s executive order.  The court said the President had not proved a terror threat to justify reviving the ban.

The ruling means that people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen with visas can continue to enter the US.  Refugees from around the world, also subject to a temporary refugee ban, are no longer blocked either.

But evidence uncovered by a UK aid charity has shown that Muslim refugees, or migrants, passing through UN camps are exposed to radicalisation.  Jihadists run refugee camps as Islamic enclaves.  Accordingly, Christians avoid them.

Figures obtained by Barnabas Fund showed the UK took in just 64 Syrian Christians out of a total of 4,000 refugees.  Because the UK outsourced its refugee selection to the UN, the bias was inevitable.

US has anti-Christian refugee bias

But the US has a similar policy.  Barnabas Fund said in a Press Release:

‘The simple fact is that of 10,801 Syrian refugees admitted to the USA last year only 56 were Christians (there were also only 20 Shi’a and 17 Yazidis – the other two groups that John Kerry said were facing genocide), while 99% were Sunni Muslims.’

President Trump earlier defended his 27th January executive order.   He said the policy was about prioritising religious minorities. He was asked if persecuted Christians would be a priority.  Trump replied by criticising the previous Obama administration:

‘Yes, they have been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very, very tough to get into the United States. If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian it was almost impossible.’

BBC denied Trump’s Obama criticism

The BBC's Nick Bryant confected a fake news comment.

The BBC’s Nick Bryant: fake news comment.

The next Sunday, at the start of the 10pm television news, the BBC broadcast a comment by their New York correspondent, Nick Bryant.  Mr Bryant said:

“In an interview with an evangelical television network [President Trump] claimed without any factual basis the old Obama policy favoured Muslims over Christians”.

The BBC also posted online a video of President Trump’s statement.

The BBC responded to a complaint from the aid charity by confusing the issue.  They said:

‘Research by the Pew Center shows broadly equal numbers of Christians and Muslims being admitted in 2016 to the United States. This suggest (sic) that the very small percentage of Christian refugees coming to the US from Syria is untypical.’

But the story was about Syria!  The BBC indulged in fake news.  It is clear they intended to cast the Trump Executive Order in a bad light.

Muslim Terrorism remains a threat

The US Court held the Executive did not provide enough evidence of their claimed terror threat.  But such a threat is difficult to quantify.

Members of the Religion of Peace

Members of the Religion of Peace

We know Muslim jihadist gangs run the UN refugee camps.  Because of that, we know Christians avoid them.  We know Islamic State is using the refugee crisis to infiltrate the West.  We also know that Muslims would like to establish Islamic law everywhere.  And we know terrorism world-wide is overwhelmingly Islamic.

Christians want to be hospitable but we must also be realistic.  Every nation has a Biblical mandate to protect its borders, as I showed in this video.  A refugee ban on Muslims makes sense both from a security and social cohesion point of view  The US Constitution forbids religious bias.  But we know there is a pro-Muslim religious bias in the numbers of refugees the UK and US admit.  We also know the establishment are keen to cover that up. They will even use fake news to do so.

Protect security

As we went to press, a court was preparing to hear an objection to ending the UK’s child refugee programme.  We do not know if there were any Christians among the 350 alleged ‘children’ taken in.  Nor have we ever been told anything about the family situation of the children.  Last year, the Home Office admitted 45% of 11,847 ‘child’ applicants whose ages were checked were not actually children.  How many were jihadists?  No-one knows.

The US Constitution also allows the US to protect its security.  The case will probably now move to the Supreme Court.  In the meantime migrants from the countries named are taking advantage of the relaxation.  And Islamic State personnel will not be short of money for air fares.  The US may only find out the Trump refugee ban was correct when it is too late.

Article 50 Bill passes House of Commons

The 'Tellers' give the results of the final vote on the Article 50 Bill to the Speaker

The ‘Tellers’ give the Speaker the results of a vote on an amendment to the Article 50 Bill.

The Article 50 Bill, more properly the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill, has passed all its stages in the House of Commons.

The SNP tabled a whole raft of amendments at Committee Stage.  Labour tabled some others.  The House voted on some of them and defeated all it voted on.

That meant there was no need for a Report Stage and the Bill passed straight to Third Reading.  Read the Hansard record of the Debate here.  The House duly gave the Bill its Third Reading.  The majority was 372.

Article 50 Bill Amendments

We single out three amendments. Labour tabled one requiring parliamentary approval before a final agreement with the EU.  That was defeated by 33 votes, the DUP, UKIP and half-a-dozen Labour MPs joining the Conservatives in saying ‘No’ to it’.  (This is Division 141 in the Hansard link above.)

The Liberal Democrats tabled an amendment requiring a second referendum before a final agreement.  Only the LIbDems, Plaid Cymru, the Green, Northern Ireland’s SDLP and a few Labour MPs voted for that.  Most of Labour abstained.  Again, half-a-dozen Labour MPs, the DUP and UKIP joined the Conservatives in the ‘No’ lobby.  Accordingly, 340 MPs said ‘No’ in Division 156.  Only 33 voted ‘Aye’.

Thirdly, Labour asked the House to mandate Theresa May to allow EU citizens the right to stay in the UK.  They wanted her to give this assurance without securing an equivalent promise for UK citizens from the EU.  The House defeated that amendment in Division 159 by 42 votes.

Finally, in Division 161, the House of Commons gave the Bill a Third Reading by 494 votes to 122.  Labour imposed a three-line whip.  (Their whips underlined the instruction to MPs to vote for the Bill three times.)  Of couse, most Labour ‘rebels’ represent inner city constituencies which voted ‘Remain’.  Equally, a couple of shadow ministers have resigned. Nevertheless, Jeremy Corbyn will impose no sanctions on Labour MPs who voted against.  The point was simply to show Labour as a party respects the referendum result.

See how your MP voted in these divisions on our complete MP voting list here.

The Hand of God

Some may wonder why Theresa May did not agree to seek Parliamentary approval when Gina Miller first brought her court action to compel it.  After all, the House of Commons voted overwhelmingly to trigger Article 50.

The reason, quite simply, could be the hand of God.  In this analysis, the Lord allowed the court case to proceed and by so doing blessed the United Kingdom.  Firstly, he confused the minds of ministers so they would not notice Labour’s promise not to obstruct the process.  That allowed the case to proceed.  Secondly, the Supreme Court’s involvement gave legitimacy to the Parliamentary course of action.  It silenced any doubters.  As a result, the Government now has a much better hand. They can negotiate with the EU from a position of greater strength than if they had used the Royal Prerogative.  The House even squashed the idea of a second referendum.  That idea is now dead.

Thirdly, the Court ruled against giving the SNP (in particular) a veto over the process.  That was possibly as important an outcome as any.

Psalm 30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Now the Bill passes to the House of Lords, so remember to keep praying for our parliamentarians.
