Secularism gone mad

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 9:42 pm

A Christian fostering and adoption service faces closure – because of government legislation.

Cornerstone (based in Stockton-on-Tees) refers unmarried couples and homosexuals to other agencies because they will only place children in the care of Christians who are living “by the Bible’s teaching”.

This breaches the Sexual Orientation Regulations and consequently the agency faces closure.

The fact that Cornerstone has been extremely successful in finding stable homes for the children who have passed through its hands in the last seven years seemingly counts for nothing.

Apparently our government doesn’t believe in Christian charity.

PEPYS ON GLOBAL WARMING

Samuel Pepys January 21st 1661.

Wonder if he drove a gas-guzzler horse and carriage? 1661 – mmmmm.

CRISIS, WHAT CRISIS?

In a further show of DUP solidarity as it prepares to share power with terrorists, one of the men who FOUNDED the Party, George McConnell has resigned from the Party and added he would not even vote for the DUP in the March 7 election. Mr McConnell said…:

"I am one of the people who helped put the party where it is, but now we have just been cast aside, no longer needed."

The Kilkeel man attended the inaugural meeting of the DUP with leader Ian Paisley and then-Shankill MP Desmond Boal in September, 1971. Nice to see the DUP holding so well together..lol! Mr McConnell has shown integrity by sticking to his principles.

IT’S OBAMA MANIA!

Showing its …ahem…famed professional impartiality, the UK media has gone OBAMA crazy as the Democratic Senator Barack Obama launched his presidential campaign. Showing REAL leadership, Obama announced that US troops must be out of Iraq within the year. I’m sure Al Queda will be heartened by this courageous decision. With gutless surrender as his campaign motif, I’m sure he will enjoy continued cheer-leading from the clueless UK press. Vote Obama – Osama’s preferred candidate.

NO CHANGE FOR LOOSE CHANGE.

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 1:33 pm

I was reading this story in the Daily Mail – that alleged "right-wing" bastion of the UK new media. It takes a crank internet conspiracy video called "Loose Change"concerning 9/11 as the starting point and then uses it to allege that;

1. The Bush administration was directly responsible for carrying out 9/11 in order to provide cover for a spurious war on Al Queda.

2. The Twin Towers were blown up.  

3. A missile, not Flight 77, hit the Pentagon.

Now, I view these claims as the fevered imaginings of depraved moonbats – but obviously the Editor of the Mail thinks differently otherwise he would not have given them a double page spread. The attack on the US that took place on 9/11 was but the latest and most vicious from Al Queda. I find it despicable that a major British newspaper feels it appropriate to suggest otherwise. I wonder how our US readers view this?

“peace be amongst you!”

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 1:10 pm

I always though that Northern Ireland politics had everything going for it, both on the serious, blood-stained side as well as the slightly-silly, with people such as John Hume being given half of a Nobel Peace prize (for producing half a peace, no doubt) along with David Trimble who got the other half. Wonder what happened to that Peace, as opposed to all the other versions? (but I digress!). We see the old ‘Doc’ himself, supported by the appalling band of grasping brothers, edging towards an accomodation with IRA members, which will ultimately end in them sitting opposite, if not together, in a devolved Parlament! From the acid to the faintly sickly aroma of sanctimony, it’s all here; but not even Northern Irish political comment has seen anything quite like the rush of comment and condemnation which followed the death of ex-MP Fiona Jones, she of the alleged fiddled expenses. If you view this website, and read through the comments section, you will see what political vitriol is all about, especially when the bottle holders have got ammunition which wouldn’t normally get to see the light of day!

All hail to Tim 

 

Your Vehicle Needs You!

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 11:06 am

It is the largest petition ever seen on a government website here in the United Kingdom.   This morning at 9am it had less than a million signatures.  Now, at a little after 11:00 an extra 10,000 have signed up (you’ll see my name on there somewhere) taking the total above that magic figure.  I have linked it to ATW because I want as many as possible to give their support to the inalienable right of the average Briton to drive his or her motor vehicle without being constantly subjected to the wicked spite of a government determined to do everything in its power to prevent them.

Unfortunately, the petition is only open to people resident in the United Kingdom.  In several displays of the most breathtaking arrogance, one (anonymous) minister has referred to the petition as ‘nonsense’.  Transport Secretary, Douglas Alexander has said he will not let any amount of protests distract him from the introduction of pay-as-you-drive road charging.  What he hasn’t said, as a canny Scot representing a Renfrew constituency, is that road pricing is not a reserved matter.  He will therefore press ahead with road charging in ENGLAND, even though he lacks to power to introduce it in his own stamping ground should the Scottish Executive decline to follow the English lead.

‘Nonsense’?  I think the last time we heard of such staggering hubris was when a French tart, by the name of Marie Antoinette, said ‘let them eat cake.’  There is no way the British people will tolerate losing thousands of pounds every year in order to keep their cars on the road.  If they have a choice to make between Labour and their vehicles, they will choose their vehicles every time.  Ten years of putative dictatorship at the behest of Blair’s minions may have imbibed them with a feeling of invincibility.  They’ll find out how fragile that conviction is should they go ahead with this lunacy. 

THE ORIGINS OF COLLUSION….

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 10:30 am

I note that the Irish Republican obsession with "collusion" continues today at a conference taken place in Dublin bringing together many different families who all believe their relatives or friends were murdered by British state forces in collusion with loyalists.

From my perspective, this is as credible as a UFO convention, or perhaps an "Elvis is still alive" gathering. You can be sure that it will get a sympathetic media hearing though. After all, a chance to blacken the Brits is a chance not to be ignored!

The message Irish Republicans need to comprehend is that had they not chosen to support a genocidal terrorist campaign against those of us who live on the same island as them, and had their rotten Government not aided the setting up of the Provisional IRA as well as providing sanctuary for it’s butchers, then they would have no grievance, real or imaginary. If they want to find where collusion starts – look in a mirror.

MADE IN IRAN…

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 10:12 am

Given the news that the most lethal bombs used to kill US troops in Iraq are made in Iran, I wonder how James Baker and his fabulous gang of wise men square this with their assertion that we need to be talking to Iran since it can be a source of "stabilisation" in the region?

Come to think of it, when one reads the liberal media pleading for the US to refuse to take ANY military action against Iran and given that Iran is providing the weapons to slaughter OUR troops – doesn’t that mean that the MSM wants to see our military die – rather than risk taking any form of action

Nothing is easy in warfare. I fully accept that. But closing your eyes to reality is not a strategy that can prevail. We need to take firm action against the Iranian administration and annihilating its nuclear resources would be the best start point.

‘Climate Hysteria’

By ATWadmin On February 10th, 2007 at 9:32 am

Climate change is a real and serious problem. But the problem with the recent media frenzy is that some seem to believe no new report or development is enough if it doesn’t reveal more serious consequences and more terrifying calamities than humanity has ever considered before.

Indeed, this media frenzy has little or no scientific backing. One of England’s foremost climatologists, Mike Hulme, director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, points out that green militancy and megaphone journalism use "catastrophe and chaos as unguided weapons with which forlornly to threaten society into behavioural change".
