Spreading Christianity is a Hate Crime!

I was going to write about a few things today, but then this little ditty caught my attention, and even though I don't want to sound like I'm beating a dead horse, (Or a camel in this case!) as soon as I saw it I knew that I had to comment on it!

We all know that being an Apostate in Islam (rejecting Islam and converting to another faith) is punishable by death and is enforced in some parts of the Middle-East!

It works the other way too. (Just not the way you think!)

Here is what got me steamed!

Two Christian preachers were stopped from handing out Bible extracts by police because they were in a Muslim area, it was claimed yesterday.

They say they were told by a Muslim police community support officer that they could not preach there and that attempting to convert Muslims to Christianity was a hate crime.

The community officer is also said to have told the two men: ‘You have been warned. If you come back here and get beat up, well, you have been warned.’
Now if this had taken place in Saudi Arabia or even Egypt I could at least understand it, but that's not the case bunky! OH NO!

You see kids, this happened in BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND!!!!!!!!

This comes amid growing concern over the development of Islamic ‘no-go areas’ throughout Britain.

The preachers, who have the backing of the Christian Institute pressure group, say they will take the force to court for breaching their human rights if they don’t receive an apology.

They have accused the officer, PCSO Naeem Naguthney, of behaving in an ‘aggressive and threatening’ manner. A complaint by their lawyers said he interrupted as they spoke to Muslim youths about their beliefs.

Mr Abraham, 65, who was born a Muslim in Egypt and is a convert to Christianity, said: ‘He told us we were trying to convert Muslims to Christianity and that that was a hate crime.'

‘He said we were in a Muslim area and were not allowed to spread our Christian message. He said he was going to take us to the police station.’

Mr Cunningham added: ‘I am dumbfounded that the police seem so nonchalant. They seem content not to make it clear that what we were doing was perfectly legal. This is a free country and to suggest we were guilty of a hate crime for spreading God’s word is outrageous.’

According to a complaint by the men’s lawyers, Mr Naguthney summoned two other officers in support, one of whom, a full constable, is said to have told the men not to return to the area.

Upon further investigation by the "Perspective" research department it seems the Alum Rock area was at the heart of a terrorism inquiry last year, which ended with the conviction of local resident Parviz Khan for plotting to kidnap and behead a British soldier.

A senior Church of England bishop, the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali, warned recently that it is hard for non-Muslims to live and work in some areas where radicals and clerics are trying to impose an Islamic character.
As a final note on this strange and almost unbelievable article I have to admit that there was a time when I was all for Multi-Culturalism because it worked so well when my parents and others came over to Canada in the fifties and sixties.

But, since then we have had groups of people who aren't content to fit in, but would rather import their prejudices and lifestyles to the dismay and disruption of society in general.

I am becoming much more of a "fit in or get out" kind of guy!
