Legislating politeness

In the UK, it’s okay to express your views, as long as you do it politely. If you are considered rude, then it’s off to jail for a sentence longer than that handed down to convicted rapists. We live in scary times. New legislation makes it a crime to criticize the homosexual lifestyle. Homosexual activists note, however,

…those who disapprove of homosexuals would have nothing to fear from the law if they express their views in a manner that is “temperate” and “polite”.

Hmm, who’s going to be the judge of that? I guarantee you that people are going to be locked up for reading the Bible aloud.

The new law aims to catch those who do not explicitly call for attacks or discrimination against homosexuals, as this is covered by existing incitement laws.

Instead, police will be allowed to pursue those who create an “atmosphere or climate” in which hatred or bullying can be fostered. Officials said it would not prohibit criticism of gay, lesbian and bisexual people or joke-telling.

The final decision over who has “crossed the line” will rest with the police.

Let the persecution begin…

    Isn’t this just sugar-coating the Hate Crimes Bill that some countries in the West have put into legislation?

    The persecution has indeed begun!

    Watch the split of Jerusalem where the Palestinians will get half of it (though I feel sad about it but I know it must come to pass) — we are seeing the beginnings of the end.

    We haven’t gotten that far in the US, but the Democrats certainly want to take us there.

    Yea, I read about that a month or so back and was deeply troubled. It does seem “right” that some in Europe will kick-start this since they do have a big starring part in end-time events that go against God.
