Government Fund Launched To Help Preserve Decaying Churches

Launching a government funded £1.8m scheme to maintain and preserve some of Britain’s most beautiful churches that are at risk, Historic England Chief Executive, Duncan Wilson, said: “ We are committed to supporting congregations who care for these extraordinary buildings and pleased that the pilot will be looking not only at the buildings themselves, but also at how they can be imaginatively used so they can once again be at the heart of local communities.”

The scheme, to be managed by Historic England, will pay for urgent repairs and support the efforts of volunteers to maintain listed buildings including churches, synagogues, and meeting houses in two pilot areas, Suffolk and Greater Manchester. The tasks involved often require specialist skills.

The pilot regions were chosen because one is more urban and other other more rural, and the scope of the project has been based on the recommendations of last year’s Taylor Review which examined the sustainability of English churches and cathedrals. The report stated that church buildings play a “vital role” in offering public services, and give communities a sense of identity.

It recommended that they should be opened up for other uses, such as Post Offices, flu jabs and youth clubs to help ensure a more sustainable future for the buildings. The Daily Stirrer and our predecessor were, as usual, way ahead of the game when we suggested ten years ago that such a scheme was needed.

The diocese of Manchester has already earmarked for help from the scheme, Anglican churches which could benefit from the fund, including St Chad’s, Rochdale (above), a Grade I listed church in need of repair, and St Thomas, Halliwell which needs modernising and plans to work with a local school.

Manchester’s churches are already used to host foodbanks, breakfast and holiday clubs, credit unions and debt advice centres and support services for refuges and asylum seekers.

Now we will make another suggestion that we hope politicians and bureaucrats might one day catch up with. Part of the cost of this scheme could be offset if government departments and local councils stop giving generous grants to Muslim organisations for the building of Mosques and ‘Islamic Study Centres (aka training schools for jihadists.) There is no place in civilised, tolerant Britain for the brutal and primitive laws and customs of a medieval religion like Islam.

Islam Does Not Do Multiculturalism

Came across this intertesting article from American Thinker reposted on Minds.com. It is authored by Iranian – American pro – democracy activist Amil Imani and is a thorough analysis of the relationship between the Islamic world and the liberal democracies of the west. Imani is scathing about left wing ideologues and their dreams of a global biberal culture as he is about World View Thinkers who believe a global authoritarian government could persuade different cultures to co – exist side by side.

Absolutely no co-existence with Islam

Islam and the West cannot co-exist. I have warned of this many times, and I hope I have not been talking to a wall.

Fellow travelers, there is no “coexistence” in Islam, there is only subjugation or elimination of infidels. Islam believes in the rule of Islam, Caliphate to the Sunnis, and Imamate to the Shiites. Hence, to Muslims, all other forms of government represent the handiwork of Satan and infidels.

Therefore, one and all non-Islamic systems of government must be purified by Islamic fire. This is a fact.

Muslim jihadists live among us. It is only going to get worse. Jihadists consider themselves the army of Allah. They use violence as an instrument of policy. This continues to be central to Islam. Muslims war under the firmly-believed and widely-cherished set of ideas that are rabidly militaristic. No matter which side is killed, Islam is the victor, “You kill them, you go to paradise; you get killed, you go to paradise,” are two examples of exhortations to jihadism and war.

For the past twenty years or so, I have been warning to free men and women: Remain a spectator at your own peril. It is imperative that you take a stand, denounce the fraud of Islam, and do all you can to prevent Islamic fire from devouring our civilized democratic system. Tomorrow will be too late.

Allah hu Akbar In Nomine Patris, et filii et spritus sancti

It’s not often you will see a link to a newspaper like The Catholic Reporter in this blog, but we have always been critics of the principle globalist think tank The Bilderberg Group (The NewWorld Order’s lunch club,) so when we read that the current Pope, Francis the 666th or something had sent a cardinal to this year’s Bilderberg meeting to deliver a message to the elitist global government advocates, knowing the current Pope’s papacy has been characterised by his enthusiasm for Islam, we were gratified to see the world’s Catholics appear to be waking up to the fact that their spiritual leader is The Bilderberg Group’s placeman.

This article, referring to a speech made by Pope Mohammed’s predecessor, Benedict, who did not die in office as Popes do, but was shoved aside, is well worth revisiting.

Regensburg redux: Was Pope Benedict XVI right about Islam?

Eight years ago Sept. 12, Pope Benedict XVI delivered a lecture at the University of Regensburg in Bavaria in which he seemed to diagnose Islam as a religion inherently flawed by fanaticism.

It was an undiplomatic assertion, to say the least — especially coming a day after the 9/11 anniversary — and it sparked an enormous outcry among Muslims and came to be seen as one of a series of missteps that would plague Benedict’s papacy until he resigned in 2013.

Now, with the Islamic State on the march in the Middle East, leaving a trail of horrifying brutality and bloodshed that has shocked the world, some of Benedict’s allies on the Catholic right are saying, in effect, “He told you so.”

“Regensburg was not so much the work of a professor or even a pope,” wrote Fr. Raymond de Souza in a column for the National Catholic Register, a conservative publication. “It was the work of a prophet.”

Eight years later, “we have ISIS” — an acronym for the Islamic State — “And beheadings. And persecution. And hatred. And war,” added Elise Hilton in a blog post for the Acton Institute, a libertarian Catholic think tank.

“It appears that the world owes Pope Benedict an apology,” she wrote.

So what did Benedict say at Regensburg that continues to resonate so widely?

“Unknown Iraqi Forces Attack Restaurant for Serving Food During Ramadan,”

ERBIL, IRAQ — A group of armed men belonging to unidentified Iraqi forces on Friday attacked a small restaurant in the central province of Babil merely for serving meals during Muslim’s holy month of Ramadan. Citing an anonymous security source, Iraqi media reported that the attackers beat the restaurant workers and then kidnapped two of them. The two abducted workers were later left nearby a hospital…

Eating during ramadan: haram. Beating restaurant workers who serve food during ramadan: pleasing to their Allah.

‘We Are Not Visitors’: Muslims in Sweden Demand Mosque Call to Prayer

Muslims in a city in Sweden have submitted an application to be allowed to broadcast the call to prayer, claiming the move would boost community self-esteem and assist with integration. If you have never heard the Muslim call to prayer, sung by the muezzin, a man specially selected for his ability to sing like a tom cat that is having its bollocks crushed in a vice, will know it is not the most harmonious sound to western ears. Such discordant notes suit Islam well of course, because music is an abomination to Allah according to Muslim fundamentalists.

Expressen reports the Växjö Muslim Foundation submitted an application to the police requesting permission to send out a three-minute Islamic call to prayer each Friday from a loudspeaker attached to the front of a mosque in the city’s Araby district. While some Christian residents are disrurbed by the content of the call, which exalts Allah and demeans the Christ, others are simply upset at the prospect of their peace being shattered by the cacophonous wailing.

“We are just wanting Sweden to allow Muslims in Växjö to feel even more at home. The Islamic community should be proud of their culture, and not feel like they have to hide,” said Imam Ismail Abu Helal, a spokesman for the Växjö Muslim community.

The imam told Smålandsposten he believes allowing the call to prayer could have a positive effect on the city, and that it would help enable Muslims to better integrate into Araby, a district in which already by 2008, 58 per cent of residents were recorded to have had foreign backgrounds.

“I think that [allowing the call to prayer] is good for integration, and it will provide confirmation of religious freedom,” said Abu Helal. “Muslims are not visitors in Växjö, we live here.”

When the Imam speaks of integration we wonder does he think hearing the call to prayer will help Christians and atheists accept Allah as the one true god, accept the supremacy of Sharia Law and integrate into Islamic society?

Schools Boss Who Backed Infant Hijab Ban Faces Anti-Semitic Attacks

The head of the UK’s schools inspectorate has been targeted with anti-Semitic abuse after she backed a school’s decision to ban infant girls from wearing the Islamic headscarf.

Amanda Spielman argued that school leaders would ban under-eights wearing lipstick and high heels to class, they could also ban the hijab and face veil, which sexualise young girls.

There is nothing in Sharia Law which stipulates that pre-pubescent girls should wear the hijab or keep their hair covered, the wearing of headgear which totally covers female hair is a recent addition to Muslim dress rules for women which appears to have been invented by radical preachers hoping to emphasise the sense of otherness that serves to imose self segredgation on some parts of the Muslim community in Europe.

After the ruling Ms. Spielman quickly became the target of leftists and radical Muslims and received anti-Semitic attacks online, The Times reports.

Government Fails Jewish School Over Lack of ‘Correct’ LGBT Teaching

A Jewish girls’ school in London has been failed for a third time by Education Department inspectors who claim it fell short of requirements set out in the Equalities Act to teach LGBT principles in general and homosexuality/gender reassignment issues in particular. The equalities act, you may remember is a pernicious piece of legislation pushed through by former Labour deputy leader and lobbyist on behalf of the Paedophile Information Exchange which at the time of Harman’s involvement was demanding as part of its “equal rites for paedophiles” position that the age at which it is legal to have sex with youg people be lowered to 4 (I’ll spell that so there is no room for confusion F-O-U-R) in the dying days of the last Labour government.

The Vizhnitz girls’ school caters to 212 students and has been visited by the UK’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) to determine if it taught LGBT issues such as “sexual orientation.” Because it had not, it was gauged to have declined giving its pupils who are aged up to eight years old, a “full understanding of fundamental British values” and therefore the school is in breach of equality laws, according to the Jewish Press; (Jew hating, terrorist – loving, Corbyn supporting, racist, neo-Nazi, millennial snowflakes might want to fuck the fucking fuck off here, because while I’m, not trying to ‘trigger’ anyone I know such Jew – hating people can’t cope with views sympathetic to the Jewish community.) Schools that do not come up to Ofsted’s requirements must improve or face closure.

Just read that previous paragraph again. Our ‘progressive’ education system is now so dominated by paedophile loving, racist, left wing activists, they think the main purpose of primary education is to indoctrinate prepubescent children with Gay BLT propaganda. And this website would like to know when did being a turd burglar or rug muncher become part of “fundamental British values”. Keep sex in the bedroom and out of the classroom, that’s a fundamental British value.

The inspectors report on Vizhnitz school commented: “This restricts pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and does not promote equality of opportunity in ways that take account of differing lifestyles,” the Ofsted inspectors reported, pointing out that the students are being “shielded from learning about certain differences between people, such as sexual orientation.” As a result, “pupils have a limited understanding of the different lifestyles and partnerships that individuals may choose in present-day society.”

After spending an hour searching the web I could find no instance of a Muslim failth school being censured for failing to tech Gay BLT propaganda or tell publis they should multilate their reproductive organs in the name of political correctness. So now we find the education system of racist as well as biased towards the gay community.

The inspectors conceded that “the school’s culture is, however, clearly focused on teaching pupils to respect everybody, regardless of beliefs and lifestyle.” Right, so what’s the fucking problem. Why do Gay BLTs get special treatment when we are allowed to ridicule Christians, computer gamers, Train spotters, stamp collectors and people with ginger hair?

David Kurten MEP, the UKIP Education spokesman, said the state should not be forcing ideologies on children at the very youngest ages.

“Primary school children are far too young to be exposed to ideas such as the details of non-reproductive sexual acts and gender fluidity. Children deserve a childhood and the guise of ‘inclusion’ and ‘anti-bullying’ is being used to expose them to damaging ideas far too early, and to undermine and close down faith schools in favour of secularism.

“Yet secularism is not a neutral blank canvas of a worldview. Humanist and secularist groups have actively campaigned against faith schools for over a century. 99% of faith schools are Christian schools, and have done an excellent job of education children and young people in the UK since Augustine’s time in the 6th Century.

“Ofsted is now part of the red blob which is pushing cultural Marxism.”

Six other religious schools in the UK have also failed the same inspections in recent weeks.

Eight Subjects That Ought To Be Part Of The Manadtory Curriculum For Basic Education?
Should subjects like meditation and gardening be part of the school currriculum? Or as one high school in Massachusetts, USA, seems to believe, classes in analyzing conspiracy theories (if taught properly this could help students distinguish between a true conspiracy theory, a fantasy and what is legitimate questioning of official propaganda. The embedded article from Collective Evolution presents some interesting ideas.
