Don’t Tell MAMA

 

Why no mention of this part of Cameron’s Easter Message on the BBC?:

As we celebrate Easter, let’s also think of those who are unable to do so, the Christians around the world who are ostracised, abused — even murdered — simply for the faith they follow. Religious freedom is an absolute, fundamental human right.

Britain is committed to protecting and promoting that right, by standing up for Christians and other minorities, at home and abroad.

 

The BBC’s take on Cameron’s views on religion…..

David Cameron has spoken of the “peace” and “guidance” he finds in his Christian faith.

In a rare comment on his religious beliefs, the prime minister stressed the importance of teaching children about the religious aspects of Easter.

 

The BBC quotes Bloomberg:

According to reports on the Bloomberg news service, the prime minister made no reference to gay marriage, a policy overseen by Mrs Miller but which threatened to damage his government’s relationship with the Church of England, in his comments.

 

But not all Bloomberg…..only the very selective chunks…..

The BBC deciding to report that Cameron made no reference to gay marriage….but strangely managing to miss Bloomberg’s mangled reference to what Cameron actually did say about the persecution of Christians despite Bloomberg’s big headline:

Persecuted Religion

He committed his government to fighting persecution of Christians abroad.

“It is the case that Christians are now the most persecuted religion around the world,” Cameron said. “We should stand up against persecution of Christians and other faith groups wherever and whenever we can.”

 

Because we all know it’s Muslims who are the most persecuted don’t we….’we’ being the BBC.

 

And for the BBC the easter Message is just a cynical political stunt:

It’s a message from an instinctively “county Tory”, a Conservative from a rural background, that will appeal to the party heartlands; where some feel bruised by what they see as liberal, metropolitan concerns such as gay marriage.

    Speaking of “Tell Mama”. Their complaint to the PCC didn’t go so well. Maybe the BBC will get round to reporting this, and not rely on “Tell Mama” as a source in future.
    “Tell Mama’ did exaggerate anti-Muslim attacks: PCC rejects all Fiyaz Mughal’s complaints against us”

    Cameron doesn’t even seem to know when Easter actually is.

    Posting a Happy Easter message on 9th April when Easter Sunday is on 20th April.

    The New Age religions include identity rights, serial victimhood and manufactured grievances…their tribute to Islam
    They also include end of the world crap of the Jehovahs Witnesses and Millenium death cults similarly ignorant of Revelation…the Lime Green God of enviromentalism.
    Fuse those two together-don`t let the Muslims get to the gays and Swampys though-and you have the peace of the graveyard….and the BBC get their hearing and dole out the hymnsheets as the radio Times and Ariel(for the priests).
    At least Cameron mentions it …finally.
    Maybe if we told the BBC that those matryrs in Syria etc had a subscription to Al Gores Foundation-then we might have a chance of them caring about what is being done to the “Church Suffering”….when we need to be the “Church Militant”.
    I remember Prince Charles being similarly ignored on this topic-anybody would think that the BBCs staff are afraid of going to prison and facing their Muslim pals sometime soon wouldn`t they?

    I remember Cameron said ‘Marriage was safe in his hands’ and then handed his speech writing over to gay advocat activist and plonker Peter Tatchell. Now nothing is safe, our children are the target in an (EU) ‘roadmap’ for a indoctrination war on parenthood, the Church, natural parents, ‘educational gay sex relations’ and (BBC favorite) under age sex laws abolished which Maria Miller aided and abetted (along with the BBC gay ‘Sports’ promotions – surely an ‘oxymoron’ that) primarily for morally corrupt politicians like Cyril Smith and Harriet Harmens PIE former members who have since elevated themselves into the House of Lords. All very keen on ‘under age children’ who cannot now be trusted on legislation for removing rights of children to have a mother and father and organising ‘child surrogacy’ for paid gay adoptions by those claiming the ‘rights’ Marriage is the consequence of moral corruption and ceaseless BBC promotion of an unhealthy practice sold as ‘Sport’.

    it is strange that tell mama have forged an alliance with the gay activist peter thatchell and the jewish security trust to report on there website any homophobic or anti semtic threats etc,that did not go down to well i heard with with alot muslims who bombarded that telll mama site with homophobic and anti semetic abuse because they let peter thatchell and the jewish security join that organisation,what disturbs me about tell mama is this,where is the voice of christians who suffer daily abuse and threats of violence at the hands of muslims and islamic extremists or christianaphobes,why have we as christians got no voice or representation with tell mama,thats is what disturbs me about this organisation called tell mama.

      This seems another one of those efforts, like anything from W1A’s premise to the BBC3 Free Speech meltdown, that may have seemed a triff idea in theory, but reality has brought down with a bump.
      Given the latest trend for organisations dealing in confidential helplines, whistleblowers, etc to also leave the keys to the database PCs open to any passing temp from the cubicle gardens whose professional commitment takes second place to what Uncle preaches, I’d say anyone from JST to a raft of Muslim and/or homophilic quarters may now be feeling a tad nervous.
      Which may polish it off quicker than any ban.
