Former Labour Minister: UK Can’t Defeat Terror Without Understanding Religion.

Former Labour Party  minister Kim Howells, who was responsible for military security under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, has suggested the Labour government of which he was a member was wrong to ignore the religious roots of Islamist terror, urging authorities to ‘take on’ the ideology to defeat terror.

While Blair was playing the Christian crusader as sidekick to US President George W Bush (and being reminded by his spin doctor Alistair Campbell that in Britain “we don’t do God” there was, Mr. Howells said, a failure to understand that Islamist violence is distinct from other forms of terror and Western values such as democracy must be defended. Presumably he is trying to tell his party the time for appeasement of Islamic extremism is gone, it’s time to push back.

“I was part of a Government that said: ‘Well, we don’t do God.’ he commented,  “But you can’t afford not to do God on this one, I think,” he told Wales Online.

“These people aren’t motivated – not on the most part, anyway – by money or some kind of nationalism. It’s different from the IRA. These people are prepared to kill themselves and they do it because they think it’s a shortcut to paradise…

“Unless people have enough courage to take that on and try and convince young people that the Caliphate is not a better way of running society than a democracy they are going to be lured to these organisations.”

Whilst some say Islamic terror is largely driven by grievances such as “Islamophobia”, “alienation”, marginalisation, poverty and Western foreign policy, Mr. Howells argues that in order to understand fundamentalist Islam’s loathing of western culture it is necessary to appreciate the importance of theological conflictsin Islamic societies.

“These guys are not just trying to kill unbelievers and Christians and so on. Their main enemy is another form of Islam,” he said, referring to the violent schism between Sunni and Shia Islam.

“Many other nations and ethnic groups have been affected by foreign interventions and discrimination, yet the vast majority of recent terror attacks have occurred in countries afflicted by Islamist insurgencies.”

It is true that western governments have failed to understand the deep rooted causes of Islamic extremism but this blog would argue that is not a failing on the part of western cultures. Rather it is not possible for westerners to understand the backward and tribalistic mindset of many subcultures in the Muslim world. How for example does one go about persuading randy young men who have been indoctrinated with the idea that women are unclean, their only purposes being to serve men and to produce babies, to understand that in the west women are independent beings, free to dress how they wish and go freely wherever they want to in the same way men are. Or to make fundamentalists understand that while nobody is going to make Muslims or Jews eat pork and ham, we accept the right to eat those foods in accordance with the values and traditions of our culture, and they must learn to live alongside pork eaters.

If we cannot do that, and I suspect we can’t, then we in the secular democracies must accept that mass immigration from certain Muslim cultures is not going to work, that some people just cannot accept that while we respect their right to worship as they wish, we expect them to afford us the same respect, even if in the cases of many of us it means that we choose not to worship but use our right to freedom of speech to argue against religion. Because until they are able to grant our values the same respect as they demand we grant theirs, fundamentalist Islam and secular society can never live side by side.

The Pope Wants You to Pray for a One World Religion


‘You will all obey the world religion’ – Pope Francis (Image source)

The Marxist, globalist, Soros apparatchik currently posing as head of the Catholic faith wants to scrap the Catholic Church. He didn’t say that in so many words but he has called on Catholics to pray for the creation of a world religion (because love and peace) which would embrace Catholicism, the Protestant denominations, Orthodox, Syriac, Armenian, Ethiopian and Coptic Christians, Christian Scientists, Rosicrucians, Theosophists, Freemasons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Amish, Latter Day Saints, and presumably Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Jain, Sikh, Shinto, Pagans, Shamanistic Animists, Jedi, Wiccans and Satanists. In other words they guy’s a deluded fuckwit.

from Truthstream Media:
The Hegelian dialectic has been defined as “the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution”. What we’re seeing now is the thesis + antithesis = synthesis of a centuries-long plot unfold before our eyes — politically, economically, and religiously.

The Pope (or the guy with the pope robe and silly hat everyone is calling the Pope, whichever you prefer) is now openly calling for everyone to pray for a one world religion “because love and peace”. It’s the closest we’ll get to a one world religion commercial, complete with swelling emotional music and claims that this is about peace and love and acceptance and love and peace. They sure do always promise a utopia, don’t they? Reminds us of Jeremiah 6:14, when they say “peace, peace,” when there is no peace…

Funny, while he calls for this open discussion about religions coming together, the comments section of the original YouTube video have been closed.

For the rest of the article and a video CLICK HERE The punchline? The video was put together by the Jesuit global prayer network.

This latest move will come as no surprise to those who have dubbed Frankie, “The New World Order’s Pope” because of his support for globalist, anything-but-christian ideology, his contempt for Catholic theology, dictatorial attitude towards the College of Cardinals and his determination to trash traditional Catholic values.

It is very doubtful that Pope Frankie is The Antichrist as some are suggesting, he seems to us to be just another shallow, opportunistic, egomaniacal world domination freak pitching for a global totalitarian government in which he probably has been promised a role.

Masturbators Will Find Their Hands Pregnant In The Afterlife Says Imam

You’ve got to love religion haven’t you? What would we do for laughs without it. When confronted with stories like one I read today often wonder what would the great Dave Allen have made of modern religious fanaticism?

Islamic Preacher: ‘Masturbating Men Will Find Their Hands Pregnant In The Afterlife’

Imam Muchahid Cihad Han. Keeping his hands where we can see them while the camera is around, but why is his coat unbuttoned up to chest level (image source)

A Muslim cleric has warned the sons of The Prophet that men who occasionally spank the monkey (and let’s be honest lads, we all do) could find their hands are pregnant when they reach the afterlife.

Turkey’s Hürriyet Daily News reports that Mucahid Cihad Han issued his warning during a live TV broadcast after a married man the show to say he could not stop masturbating, even on a pilgrimage to Mecca.

Han responded that masturbation was a sin in Islam. He added:

“Moreover, one hadith states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife, complaining against them to God over its rights.

“If our viewer was single, I could recommend he marry, but what can I say now?”

The self-styled televangelist advised the viewer to “resist Satan’s temptations”. Satan, I thought it was Mrs. Palm and he five daughters doing the tempting.

Wanking is a controversial issue in Islam as The Prophet (PBOH) did not pronounce directly on it. There are varying opinions on how permissible masturbation can be.

The Koran has no clear reference to the act and many hadiths (teachings of Mohammed outside of the Koran) are of questionable authenticity. Some scholars of Islam take the view that if knocking one off the wrist was an abomination, the Koran would have mentioned it, others say it should be obvious that enjoying oneself privately in a way that does not kill infidels must be a sin.

Few Islamic scholars consider it “haram” (forbidden) but believe if God had no objection to men handling their meat he would not have made it look quite so much like a pork sausage. Most Islamic clerics therefore consider masturbation “makruh” (disliked or offensive). Some even say it is permissible in certain circumstances, such as avoiding temptation to commit adultery.

How many Parents?

Every news and comment website is busy with the three parent babies argument today, can’t be arsed myself actually, the only thing that strikes me about it is the familiar dishonesty of politicians and academic as they burble emotive, semtimental nonsense about DNA editing saving people from a lifetime’s suffering.

The fact is embryo screening which gives parents the choice of whether to bring a child into the world which may become severely disabled (having the gene associated with a hereditary problem does not necessarily mean one will develop the problem.) So although I think the development really only delivers another ego massage for scientists, the only problem I have with it is that supporters are using all sorts of euphemisms to disguise the true nature of what is being done.

IT’S EFFING EUGENICS, ALRIGHT.

Lots of ethical questions are raised and of course this sees representatives of the various religions claiming a moral right to speak on the issue. And generally these people are totally opposed, citing the sanctity of life (which is a tad hypocritical coming from senior clerics of the Abrahamic religions.

One comment I saw did make me laugh however, I don’t know whether I was supposed to or if it was indented as a serious point but if it wasn’t a joke it should have been. As the religion verus science argument raged, Tiddles, commenting in The Daily Telegraph asked:

“How many parents did Jesus have … 1, 2, or 3 ?

We Have Been Threatened – It’s Our Duty To Carry On As Normal

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo atrocity several Islamist clerics in the UK and Europe have issued warnings that a similar fate awaits those who mock Islam.

Here at Boggart Blog not only do we take such warning very seriously, we also think it is morally unacceptable to mock any religion. After all the faithful take their beliefs very seriously and we should respect that.

Therefore our policy is to build bridges and to that end we are delighted to publish the news that Saudi Arabia has lifted its ban on women driving cars. In future women in the Wahabite Kingdom will be allowed to drive specially modified automobile, like the example shown below.

Je suis Charlie.

Gogglebox on the past two days television

Our cartoonist Brobast got to wondering what the Gogglebox panel would have made of the past couple of days on television …

Gogglebox-sm

Some might say we are being deliberately provocative in view of the fact that it was cartoons mocking Islam that provoked the Charlie Hebdo atrocity. Others have castigated mainstream media for not showing the French cartoons that caused the problem.

Well your fearless Boggart Bloggers did run the Charlie covers (scroll down a few posts) because we stand for free speech, democracy and erm … something else. As for our own cartoon it should not offend anyone ad if it does, well the Boggart Blog office is at the bottom of a bog in the west Pennines.

The rest of the mainstream media are hiding their cowardice behind a pretence of respect for a religion, yet they have never shown the same level of respect to Christianity, Judaeism, Hinduism and Buddhist, all of which come in for their share of piss taking (and indeeed have followers who while totally committed, are prepared to take the piss out of their own religion,)? We are led by cowards and appeasers, cowards inform us and cowards speak on our behalf and grandly tell us that we are at fault, that we are the bigots when it is clearly the insane religion , and that preaches total conversion of all humanity with death the reward for those who refuse, and that craves total submission and demands the subjugation of the human spirit and will to the imagined and invented will of a dead ‘prophet’ as channeled by their holy men.

Those who lead us and those who set themselves up as speaking for us are frightened and afraid, the compliant media of the global cartel is afraid and frightened, the establishment is afraid and frightened and will do anything to appease the violent ones, deluding themselves that in the reckoning their cowardice will earn them indulgences. And then there is the left, too stupid to be afraid, too ignorant to question, to filled with self loathing and white guilt to stand against fanaticism and in awe of the potency of a religion that feeds on and thrives on fear and submission, when the religion of Marxism only inspires ridicule.

Fear is freezing the western nations, cowards say dont fight back, give in, try to understand them, appease and accommodate, all join hands and sing Kumbaya. And of course, as someone famous once said, the coward dies a thousand deaths and would like everyone else to be the same in order to hide their shame. The cowardly left are happy to persecute a thick footballer who was the victim of a miscarriage of justice, but are afraid to stand up to those who would destroy democracy, abolish free speech and sacrifice our civilization in the futile hope of saving their own pathetic arses.

While cowardice rules the civilized world will never know peace or prosperity, just a steady decline into dystopian chaos.

Church Of The Bell End

You have to sympathise, even as you permit yourself a prurient snigger.

The elders of the Christian Science Church in Dixon, Illinois were so keen to show their respect for God’s creation they had their new Church building designed around an old oak tree that grew on the site.

The best laid plans of mice, men and Christian Scientists gan aft agley however, especially if the architect you hire is a bit of a dick, and now the church building is complete, the design has provided a lot of laughs amongst online communities. In pictures from Google Earth, you see, it looks like a limp knob.

Representatives say they intend to give the penis shaped building a “fig leaf” as soon as possible. So we will only get a laugh in the winter? No wonder this picture has gone viral on the internet.

church of bell end

Interestingly, the Christian Science creed teaches “love, growth and spiritual healing” based on teachings from the bible and the writings of founder Mary Baker Eddy. The church also has the slogan “rising up” as its motto.

Perhaps they should do a deal with the Catholics and get a “Church Of Our Lady” built next door. That might help thinks rise up a bit.
