European Union’s New Roman Empire

Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson is in trouble with the Guardian not just for saying the European Union is planning a new Roman Empire, but for saying Napoleon and Adolf Hitler had that dream as well.

(A more sympathetic view of Mr Johnson’s speech is here at the Daily Express!)

We say there is actually no need to invoke Hitler and Napoleon.  Neither of them was educated enough to go to Rome to start their project.

But some clever chap in the EU was smart enough to organise the perfect place for such an endeavour.

So is Boris right to say the European Union is reviving the Roman Empire?

Take at look at our video on this very subject recorded in Rome itself and decide for yourself.  No-one has ever before joined up these particular dots.  Prepare to be amazed:

Mega mosque loses review appeal

Christian Voice have been meeting at the proposed mega mosque site to pray since January 2007.

A prayer meeting on the Greenway (E15 3ND)

Tablighi Jamaat’s application for a Statutory Review of the Government’s rejection of their appeal against Newham Council’s refusal of planning permission for a 10,000 capacity mega mosque at a site in West Ham in London was thrown out by a judge on Wednesday 4th May 2016.

The Islamic separatist group’s lawyers thought they had found eight points of law on which to challenge the decision. But in an oral hearing in the High Court Mr Justice Ouseley dismissed every one.

Christian Voice members and local Christians have been meeting for prayer at the actual site, an old chemical works at the end of Canning Road E15, every first Saturday in the month since January 2007.

The London bombers and shoe bomber Richard Reed have all worshiped at Tablighi Jamaat mosques in Dewsbury.  The West Ham site was to be the Pakistan-based group’s European headquarters.  Ironically, the whole Abbey Mills area was once a large monastery and we have prayed for the site one day to hear praises to the King of kings again.

When we first met for prayer, the mosque trustees had just announced their intention to have the mosque operational for the London Olympics in 2012.  That date came and went and the site stayed as it was.  We believe the Lord answered our prayers for confusion among the trustees, who changed architects three times and their public relations firm twice.

Please give thanks to God, remembering the trustees can still appeal the decision.

British Muslims becoming more radical

Trevor Phillips

Trevor Phillips is ready to say ‘I was wrong.’

Trevor Phillips is presenting a programme on social attitudes among British Muslims on Channel 4 tomorrow.

It is called ‘What British Muslims Really Think’ and will air at 10pm on Wednesday 13th April 2016.

Some uncomfortable statistics will be revealed which should send shivers down liberal elite spines.  The pain will be made worse for them by the fact that Trevor Phillips was head of the Commission for Racial Equality.  He promoted many of the views he now dismisses, particularly about the speed with which Muslims would integrate and adopt British customs and attitudes.

When asked to what extent they agreed or disagreed that homosexuality should be legal in Britain, 18% said they agreed and 52% said they disagreed, compared with 5% among the public at large who disagreed. Almost half (47%) said they did not agree that it was acceptable for a gay person to become a teacher, compared with 14% of the general population.

Nearly a quarter (23%) supported the introduction of sharia law in some areas of Britain.  As many as 31% said Muslim men could have more than one wife – with many Muslim women agreeing – while 39% agreed that “wives should always obey their husbands”.  The mainstream culture would probably find a majority saying husbands should obey their wives, so the chasm between Muslims and secular Britain could hardly be more stark.

The Guardian found at least one Muslim leader of a women’s group who took issue with the findings.

Huffington Post quoted moans about the survey methods from the Muslim Council of Britain and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).  Apparently, ICM went to areas with at least 20% Muslims to conduct their interviews, simply because it costs less to find people willing to take part in a survey where there are many of the target group.

Elshad Iskandarov of the OIC, told HuffPost UK: “If a particular study focusses on areas with at least 20% muslim populations these areas are likely to be more deprived than most, making extremism more attractive.”  That is a telling comment.  Actually, there is no evidence that Muslims in more middle-class areas, particularly young Muslims, are any more liberal that their peers in Oldham, for example.

In an article in the Sunday Times, Trevor Phillips says, inter alia:

‘The problem with Britain’s liberal white elite is twofold. First, they find it hard to grasp that people of colour may not want to reveal their true selves to people who do not share their backgrounds. The fact is that most people of colour are raised to expect that white folks will let them down. And to be frank, most black and Asian Britons will tell you that their expectations are seldom confounded.

‘Second, Britain’s increasingly deracinated opinion-forming classes are puzzled by the fierce attachment to religion among ethnic minorities. The number of places of worship attended mostly by Muslims and black evangelicals is rising. The fact that Britain’s ethnic minorities are intensely committed to their religious beliefs and practices seems baffling to secular liberals — indeed, somewhat threatening. Some of my journalist friends imagine that, with time, the Muslims will grow out of it. They won’t.

‘It should come as no surprise that Muslim liberals are in despair. They knew all of this long ago. And unlike the political elite and the liberal media, they recognise that British Muslim opinion is hardening against them. The journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, who has had to seek police protection because of her liberal views, argues that the optimistic belief that time and social contact will naturally lead to the integration of Muslims is mistaken: “You know, we [liberal Muslims] are a dying breed — in 10 years there will be very few of us left unless something really important is done.”

‘Britain’s Muslims are a diverse group; but, rich or poor, British-born or not, most have a deep commitment to their faith. Many are distressed by what they see as white Britain’s increasing secularism, low morals and loss of confidence in many of its own values. Those who told ICM’s researchers that they would prefer to live a more separate life in Britain are sending a clear signal: they really don’t want to adopt much of our decadent way of life.

‘Oddly, the biggest obstacles we now face in addressing the growth of this nation-within-a-nation are not created by British Muslims themselves. Many of our (distinctly un-diverse) elite political and media classes simply refuse to acknowledge the truth. Any undesirable behaviours are attributed to poverty and alienation. Backing for violent extremism must be the fault of the Americans. Oppression of women is a cultural trait that will fade with time, nothing to do with the true face of Islam.

‘Even when confronted with the growing pile of evidence to the contrary, and the angst of the liberal minority of British Muslims, clever, important people still cling to the patronising certainty that British Muslims will, over time, come to see that “our” ways are better. And since there are so few Muslims in the corridors of power, they seldom run into anyone who can show them the reality. Those who do want to make a difference are often consumed by fear that they will be seen as prejudiced. So while our liberal elite wrings its hands in anguish and makes school children celebrate Eid, Diwali, Hanukkah — and Easter — hundreds of young people are being seduced to join Islamist fanatics abroad, thousands of young girls are shipped off to have their genitals mutilated, and many more are pressured into marriages they do not want.’

Sodomite Superhead Stripped of Schools

Liam Nolan addresses the Conservative Party Conference, possibly in 2012.

Liam Nolan addresses the Conservative Party Conference, possibly in 2012.

A much feted self-styled ‘superhead’ will be stripped of the schools in Birmingham under his command following the discovery of financial mismanagement, but is extraordinarily going to keep his job as headteacher, according to reports.

Liam Nolan pleaded with the General Teaching Council to keep his job after a conviction for a homosexual offence at the Midlands Sandwell Valley beauty spot in 2007.  Three of his school governors quit in protest. Later Nolan invited Sir Ian McKellen to promote sodomy at the original Perry Beeches school in Great Barr, Birmingham in 2009, leading to a Christian Voice street witness outside the school.

Nolan subsequently fronted a Stonewall conference encouraging teachers to follow his example.  It was called ‘Education for all’ with the subtitle ‘challenging homophobia and supporting young people.’

The Guardian reports Nolan and his Perry Beeches Academies Trust will be stripped of the five academies he runs as chief executive.

The Education Funding Agency investigated only after whistleblower allegations about the financial connection between Nolan and a supply company, Nexus Schools Ltd.  The EFA Report found ‘Nexus Schools Ltd’ received £1.3m from the Government and paid another company, ‘Liam Nolan Ltd’, £160,000 over two years to add to his £120,000 per year salary as head teacher.

The Birmingham Mail reports that Liam Nolan has stepped down as the Academies Trust’s chief executive following a call from Birmingham Councillor Brigid Jones for the trustees to consider their positions.

But the same paper later reported that Nolan was set to keep his job as headteacher.

The BBC reports that politicians from Michael Gove, as Education Secretary, and David Cameron praised Liam Nolan.  The Prime Minister even invited the stalwart Labour supporter to address the Conservative Party Conference then opened his third academy, Perry Beeches III.  This was despite their knowing about Nolan’s promotion of sodomy at Perry Beeches and his conviction for outraging public decency by a jury at Wolverhampton Crown Court in June 2007 where he was fined £1,000 with £1,500 costs.  The man he was with was fined £250.  At the time Nolan described himself as ‘gay’ and said he was ‘in a relationship’.

Nolan’s willingness to engage with the academy programme made him the Government’s poster-boy.  But now that his sexual immorality has spilled over into financial mismanagement, critics are pointing out that the academies idea is open to anyone who wants to make a quick buck to take advantage of the system.

Police ‘believe abuse victims’ stance ‘preposterous’

Press Release from Christian Voice – Immediate: 07.20 hrs 22nd March 2016

The stance of the College of Policing to encourage more sexual abuse victims to come forward by assuring them they will be believed, as reported by the BBC, is denounced today as ‘preposterous’ by a Christian group.

College of Policing Chief executive Alex Marshall said claims should be “believed” unless there was evidence to the contrary.

But Stephen Green, National Director of Christian Voice, says such a position is the opposite of what is done in every other alleged crime.

Stephen Green said today: ‘Following the embarrassment of ‘Operation Midland’ in which a man known as ‘Nick’ caused untold pain to Harvey Proctor and Lord Bramall among others by false claims, a position of believing allegations of sexual abuse looks just preposterous.

‘Sexual abuse should be treated no differently from any crime.  The police should ask if there is any evidence to corroborate an accusation.

‘The Biblical position is that no-one should be convicted on an accusation not supported by witnesses.  Corroborating evidence is such a witness.  The law should never have been changed to allow convictions if the complainant is simply more believable than the accused.

‘In criminal law, Blackstone’s principle that: “It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer” should be guiding both the police and the CPS.  By following the stance of the College of Policing we shall see more injustice and the public hounding of the innocent.

‘People can tell lies.  People can be fantasists.  On the other hand, sadly, real innocent victims may never get the justice they deserve.  It is time for people like Alex Marshall to face up to the real world.

Saudis call Hezbollah Terrorists!

Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahraini secretary general of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, from Bahrain, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Pots were calling kettles black this weekend according to ynetnews as Saudi Arabia and their Gulf State allies declared the militant Hezbollah group a ‘terrorist organisation’.

The six-member ‘Gulf Cooperation Council’ made the announcement on Friday to the backdrop of a fall-out between Saudi Arabia and Lebanon over Hezbollah influence in the Levantine state.  Saudi Arabia decided to stop security assistance to the Lebanese army and Lebanese security forces.  To back up the decision, the GCC’s secretary general said:

‘Hezbollah’s incitement and terrorist acts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq are contrary to morality and human values.”

That will be the morality and human values the UK’s friends from Riyadh practice so assiduously at home.

The announcement was swiftly followed by a denouncement of Hezbollah by the Arab League, with reservations expressed by Lebanon and Iraq.  Iran is not a part of the twenty-two member Arab League, which includes ‘Palestine’ and is led by Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Those of us with long memories will recall that no such condemnation of Hezbollah came from either the GCC or the Arab League when Hezbollah militants were raining rockets from their Lebanese bases into northern Israel leading to war with Israel in 2006.  (In fact, missiles were launched as recently as December 2015.)  So what is different today?

The clue is in the statement about Hezbollah’s activities in ‘Syria, Yemen and Iraq’ (not Israel, of course).  In each of the three theatres of war, the Shia Hezbollah are defending their co-religionists from Sunni Muslim aggression.

The GCC states are the Kingdom of Bahrain, the State of Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, the State of Qatar, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.  Five are ruled by Sunnis, in Bahrain over a Shia majority, and Oman is ruled by the home-based Ibadi sect.

With the exception of Iraq and Lebanon, all of the other Arab League states are Sunni Muslim, as this map from Colombia University shows.  The self-styled Islamic State are also Sunni Muslims.

In this photo taken on Sunday, April 20, 2014, and released on the official Facebook page of the Syrian Presidency, Syrian President Bashar Assad, right, visits a damaged church during his visit to the Christian village of Maaloula, near Damascus, Syria.

Syria’s President, Bashar Al-Assad, is from the minority Alawite sect of Shia Islam.  He has consistently defended the Syrian Christian minority.

Supported by his allies, Russia, Shia Iran and Shia Hezbollah, he is now making considerable advances to recapture land occupied by the Sunni rebels.  The Saudis don’t like that.

In Yemen, the Shia Houthi militia led by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh are fighting Sunni forces loyal to the government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has fled to Aden.  Hezbollah, funded by Iran, have given assistance to the Houthis, according to a bombastic letter allegedly sent by Hezbollah’s chief Hassan Nasrallah to President Hadi.  The Saudis don’t like that either.

Saud Arabia have been actively bombing the Houthi rebels, causing a humanitarian crisis.  The United States, the United Kingdom, and even Israel are said to backing up the Saudi campaign against the Shia rebels, according to Iran’s PressTV news outlet.

Hezbollah are also active in Iraq, and the Jerusalem Post reported only last month that the Shia militants have made clear they will take exception to any Saudi Arabian troops sent to Syria under the pretext of fighting Islamic State.

Let us make no mistake.  If Hezbollah were doing badly the Saudis would not have bothered organising a wholesale denouncement of them.  The GCC and Arab League pronouncements indicate that the Saudis feel themselves, particularly in Syria, to be increasingly on the losing side.  That is why the Saudi pot is now so concerned with the Hezbollah kettle.

Sadiq Khan and the Muslim Card

Sadiq Khan, MP for Tooting and Labour's candidate for Mayor of London

Rt Hon Sadiq Khan, MP for Tooting and Labour’s candidate for Mayor of London

A report in the Spectator magazine claims Sadiq Khan, Labour’s London Mayoral candidate, is playing the ‘Muslim Card’ in May’s election.

Recognising that Khan’s Islamic faith is disadvantageous in the wake of 9/11, the London 7th July attacks, Islamic State atrocities, Muslim migrants, sex attacks in Cologne and a rash of cases of Muslims grooming and trafficking young women, his advisors are trying to turn it to his advantage.

The Spectator’s Brendan O’Neill says Khan and his team are claiming it would send a ‘phenomenal’ message about London’s tolerance if voters were to elect Khan.

‘I thought politics was about voting for someone who had the same outlook as you?’ asks O’Neill.  ‘Now it seems to be about voting for someone who isdifferent to you, to show you aren’t bigoted.’

He complains of the 45-year-old ‘Islamifying what ought to be a straight political contest.’  And O’Neill has a message for Khan: ‘You must prove yourself to London, not the other way round.’

‘Kuffar are cattle’

Muslim writer Mehdi Hassan (aged 37) has chipped in for Khan, saying his election would show Muslims can succeed and, disturbingly, that not to elect him would drive young Muslims (like Hassan presumably) into the arms of extremists.  Vote Khan or you’ll be blown up.

Hassan works as a presenter on the Qatari Al-Jazeera channel and is astonisingly also political editor of the Huffington Post.  Another Spectator article, this time by Douglas Murray, reports the fanatical Muslim describing ‘kuffar’ (unbelievers) as ‘people of no intelligence’ and ‘cattle’.

Women are prostitutes

It gets worse.

Last week, an advisor and aide to Sadiq Khan was suspended after comments emerged on his twitter account which were less than complimentary to homosexuals and women.  Most of them are too disgusting or crass to reprint.  Among the less offensive, in May 2012 Shueb Salar posted a tweet saying “currently hating on all you faggots who have finished uni”, and the next month he tweeted “f*** all you hoes”.  ‘Hoe’, meaning ‘whore’ is a derogatory term for women popular in some subcultures.  Salar also called women ‘bitches’.

Only when footage surfaced of Salar on a shooting weekend was he actually sacked, ostensibly for tweeting he could be a htiman.  According to the Evening Standard, he posted a video online showing him firing a rifle and bragged about spending a weekend “shooting stuff with real guns, knives, crossbows and bow and arrows”.  He thought it was funny to add the comments #I’mASecretHitman, #ShoutMeIfYouWantMeToTakeCareOfSomeone and #I’llMakeItLookLikeAnAccident.

Shueb Salar - suspended by Sadiq Khan over 'hoes' comments, sacked for posing with guns.

Muslim attitudes

Salar’s views about women, let alone homosexuals, are routine among young Muslim men.  Too many trials of Muslims involved in sexual crimes have revealed a deep contempt for women, particularly white women, who are seen as fair game, or as ‘hoes’.  The mass sexual assaults in Cologne this New Year illustrate the point exactly.

Salar’s LinkedIn profile – at this time of writing – still says: ‘I assist Rt Hon Sadiq Khan MP in his Parliamentary duties, researching and assisting in the drafting of speeches, reports, press releases, briefings, Parliamentary questions, letters and email correspondence as and when required. I respond to enquiries from constituents, other politicians, the media, lobbyists and pressure groups. Topics include human rights, foreign affairs and all other current policy issues. Where necessary, I represent him at events/meetings and occasionally deal with some constituency casework.’

Muslim for Mayor?

Disturbingly, Sadiq Khan thought Shueb Salar was a fit and proper person to carry out those extensive duties. Either he checked on Salar and found his views acceptable or he didn’t and is incompetent.  How many other Muslim aides does he employ?  What are their views?

Khan voted for ‘gay marriage’ and abortion.  He does not like Christians speaking out against Islam, voting for Tony Blair’s infamous Racial and Religious Hatred Bill.  But outside Westminster, how far does his Islamic faith inform his view of the world, for example, of Israel, of the place of women?

The Salar story has sent out a ‘phenomenal message’ about Muslim misogyny, boorishness and intolerance.  Will it influence the election result in May? Sadiq Khan’s decision to play the ‘Muslim Card’ may yet come back to haunt him.

 

Deut 13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. (KJV – whenever you see ‘the LORD’ in the King James Version it stands for the actual name of the Almighty in the Hebrew text: ‘YHWH’, [ie NOT Allah!])

1Kings 12:8  But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him…

Sunday stays sort of special

David Burrowes also opposed 'gay marriage'.

David Burrowes, who tabled the successful amendment against an extension to Sunday trading, also opposed ‘gay marriage’.

The House of Commons has rejected Government plans to relax the law on Sunday trading.

A motion to remove the measure was carried by 317 votes to 286.  Read the actual debate here and follow it through to see how your MP voted.  A vote for ‘Aye’ is for Sunday. A vote ‘No’ is for the Government.

Every opposition party in the House voted against proposals to allow local councils in England and Wales to decide whether to extend opening hours.

The shop workers’ union USDAW also opposed the change, which it said would not give shop workers adequate protection if they had an objection to working on Sunday.

Speaking on television, Dave Williams of USDAW said there was a working compromise at the moment which would ‘keep Sunday special’, although the day is not really that special since the current system was introduced in 1993.

The church sadly moved away from the principled position which defeated Mrs Thatcher’s earlier attempt to relax the law in the 1986 Shops Bill, her only defeat in the House. Christian Voice opposed any compromise, saying the Lord would not honour it. So it turned out.

Seven years later, the proposal from ‘Keep Sunday Special’ was defeated and the ‘Shopping Hours Reform Council’ saw its proposal to allow large shops to open for six hours on Sunday passed in a vote on 8th December 1993.

Sir Gerald Howarth was scathing in a speech opposing the changes

Sir Gerald Howarth was scathing in a speech opposing the changes

Ministers had sought to limit the current rebellion by promising to trial the changes in 12 areas but their late offer of concessions was described by Sir Gerald Howarth as “shambolic” and “delivered by lastminute.com”.

The Government said afterwards they would respect MPs’ views. It is the Conservative government’s second defeat in the House of Commons since it was elected last May. The earlier defeat was on 7th July 2015 on “English Votes on English Laws”.

Conservative MP David Burrowes, who tabled the successful rebel amendment, said the government had not made an economic case for such sweeping changes, which he said were opposed by businesses of all sizes, shop workers and faith groups.

Speaking after the vote, he told BBC News of his “relief”, adding: “The main thing out there is relief for shop workers, families and businesses who will really be pleased today.”

Labour said the government’s approach had been “tawdry” and the House of Commons had spoken clearly on the “contentious issue”.

The SNP also objected to the government plans, even though in Scotland shops have opened for longer on Sundays for many years. They said the measure would impact on wages north of the border.

Twenty-seven Conservative MPs rebelled against the government, objecting that the measure was not in the Party’s 2015 election manifesto:

Heidi Allen
Caroline Ansell
Bob Blackman
Peter Bone (teller)
Fiona Bruce
David Burrowes
Maria Caulfield

Later the same night, the Government were twice defeated in the House of Lords.

Peers debating the Immigration Bill voted to allow asylum seekers the right to work if their claims have not been processed within six months.

They also voted to allow overseas domestic workers to change employers without risking immediate deportation.

Peers voted by 280 votes to 195 in favour of a Labour, Lib Dem and crossbench amendment to the Immigration Bill on the rights of asylum seekers to work.

Lord Alton of Liverpool, who proposed it, said it would end the “enforced workhouse destitution” currently experienced by asylum seekers.

Isaiah 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. (KJV)

European Parliament – is Seat 666 vacant?

MEP's sitting the European Parliament. But is seat 666 vacant, awaiting the Antichrist?

MEP’s sitting the European Parliament. But is seat 666 vacant, awaiting the Antichrist?

You will read all over the web that in the 863-seat European Parliament, Seat 666 is vacant, awaiting the Antichrist.

The otherwise informative website linked above voices the thoughts of many: ‘Interestingly, the seat numbered 666 is never occupied. Perhaps they are leaving it open for someone special?’

Now, we don’t believe in conspiracy theories at Christian Voice.  We believe in conspiracy as fact:

Psalm 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (KJV)

The number 666 certainly has notoriety.  The Revelation to John says it is the number of the second beast, the one we know as the Antichrist:

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

So is seat 666 in the European Parliament vacant, awaiting the Antichrist?

Miroslav

Miroslav Mikolášik MEP occupies Seat 666

No it isn’t.  The seating plan of the European Parliament shows that it is occupied by Miroslav Mikolášik, a 63-year-old Slovak Politician who sits there with the Slovak Christian Democrat Movement, the Krestansko-demokraticke hnutie, part of the European People’s Party Group.  Seat 666 was formerly occupied by Italian (sorry, Sicilian!) politician Sebastiano (Nello) Musumeci, leader of the Sicilian Alliance.  Mikolášik is not the Antichrist, any more than Musumeci was.

I predict that when the Antichrist does walk in to the European Parliament, he won’t sit at the back in seat 666.  In fact, he won’t sit in it at all, as it has no ability to initiate the legislation he requires.  That power is reserved to the unelected European Commission.  Of course, hardly anyone can buy anything at all these days without a barcode, and every sales barcode is flanked at each end and divided in the middle by the number six.  But that is a topic for another day.

Don’t get worried.  Christian Voice has not gone soft.  We still regard the European Union as an expression of Antichrist.  It’s just that seat 666 of the European Parliament is not reserved for him. He has something far grander in mind.  Not that it will last:

Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. … 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
