There’s an article on Voice Online (UK) “Are Christians facing a modern form of persecution?” regarding the foster parenting case of Eunice and Owen Johns and the “growing concern over ‘religions discrimination.'” Um, no, Christians, you’re not being persecuted — not in Western nations. Talk to a Christian in Pakistan and then get back with us on this “persecution” thing you think you’re going through. Idiots.
Lord Justice Munby and Mr Justice Beatson ruled that laws protecting people from discrimination because of their sexual orientation “should take precedence” over the right not to be discriminated against on religious grounds.
They’re damn right! It is very clear what the Abrahamic religions dictate as punishments for human sexuality and what their rules are for disciplining children, women and unbelievers. Therefore, it is crystal clear why these “religious grounds” cannot take precedence over rational thought and basic human rights in a court of law. Sorry ’bout that, Abrahamists, but sane members of society are on to you. Most unbelievers have already been where you are, subscribing to a delusion.
The Pentecostal Christian couple, who have fostered children in the past, said more people of faith need to stand firm against laws that infringe their right to follow their religious beliefs.
Nobody has stopped these people from following their religious beliefs. They are practicing their beliefs right now, believing that certain people are ‘sinful’. Absolutely nobody has stopped them from doing this. Nobody has stopped them from going to church or praying to Jesus or any other lawful thing they wish to do with their religion. As nice as these folks probably are — but fuck, who knows? they could be a couple of Stephen Greens — like all religionists, they’re full of shit.
Anyway, I left a comment after the Voice Online article:
