Only in Jesus is There Good News

There is a war going on right now by Secular Humanist Multicultural (let’s call them) Transformists AGAINST Christian faith derived from the Holy Bible. Media (including Entertainment – Big Screen and TV), major corporations, LGBTQ activists, college professors AND school teachers (including school district administrative personnel) are propagandizing (i.e. brainwashing) society against Christian Morality. These people who are influential in shaping the opinion of society at large are purposely transforming a society once dedicated to respect Christian principles into denigrating Christian Morality.

 

If you are a Church goer and the preaching you listen to tells you Biblical principles (i.e. the God-Inspired Word of God) are archaic and out of step with modern humanity, that preacher is spewing godless transformative thought. God have mercy! That Transformist preacher may even share so-called alternative scholarly beliefs that delegitimizes the original meaning of Holy Scripture. That’s what the Devil did to Adam and Eve to transform them from obedience to God to allegiance to the old serpent Satan.

 

1 Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?

And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden,

Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.

But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,

For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate. (Genesis 3: 1-6 AMPC)

 

Satan twisted God’s Words twisting the intent to make God appear the liar. Did Adam and Eve die physically after eating the forbidden fruit? NO! But they did die spiritually separating themselves from the Presence of God.

 

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

But the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, Where are you? (Genesis 3: 8-9 AMPC)

 

That separation from the Presence of God is what sends people to hell when they die physically. Believing in the sacrificial price paid by Jesus and His Resurrection from death to life restores one to the Presence of God spiritually with the promise of a new body clothed in God’s Glory in the Return of Christ Jesus and the resurrection of all dead in the Last Judgement. I believe these Scripture reference illustrate my point:

 

Acts 16: 30-31; Romans 10: 8-13; 1 Corinthians 15: 45-49, 52-57; Jude 18-23; Revelation 21: 8 (AMPC):

 

Acts 16:30-31

30 And he brought them out [of the dungeon] and said, Men, what is it necessary for me to do that I may be saved?

31 And they answered, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ [[a]give yourself up to Him, [b] take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping] and you will be saved, [and this applies both to] you and your household as well.

 

Romans 10:8-13

But what does it say? The Word (God’s message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach,

Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.

11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed.

12 [No one] for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. The same Lord is Lord over all [of us] and He generously bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him [in faith].

13 For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved.

 

1 Corinthians 15:45-49

45 Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life].

46 But it is not the spiritual life which came first, but the physical and then the spiritual.

47 The first man [was] from out of earth, made of dust (earthly-minded); the second Man [is] the Lord from out of heaven.

48 Now those who are made of the dust are like him who was first made of the dust (earthly-minded); and as is [the Man] from heaven, so also [are those] who are of heaven (heavenly-minded).

49 And just as we have borne the image [of the man] of dust, so shall we and so [a]let us also bear the image [of the Man] of heaven.

 

1 Corinthians 15:52-57

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed).

53 For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).

54 And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished [a]forever) in and unto victory.

55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?

56 Now sin is the sting of death, and sin exercises its power [b][upon the soul] through [c][the abuse of] the Law.

57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Jude 18-23

18 They told you beforehand, In the last days (in the end time) there will be scoffers [who seek to gratify their own unholy desires], following after their own ungodly passions.

19 It is these who are [agitators] setting up distinctions and causing divisions—merely sensual [creatures, carnal, worldly-minded people], devoid of the [Holy] Spirit and destitute of any higher spiritual life.

20 But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [[a]make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit;

21 Guard and keep yourselves in the love of God; expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)—[which will bring you] unto life eternal.

22 And refute [so as to] convict some who dispute with you, and on some have mercy who waver and doubt.

23 [Strive to] save others, snatching [them] out of [the] fire; on others take pity [but] with fear, loathing even the garment spotted by the flesh and polluted by their sensuality.

 

Revelation 21:8

But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

 

The above Scriptures apply to all manner of people receiving Salvation in Christ or the opposite rejecting the Saving Grace of faith in the birth, death and bodily Resurrection of Jesus the Christ.

 

But for the purpose of the inspiration of these thoughts, let’s examine what the Word of God tells us about all things unnatural with the Transformists pushing acceptance of the immorality of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Queer (LGBTQ) Agenda (my sense is “Queer” takes care of the perversions sympathetic to LGBT).

 

The LGBTQ perversion is so pervasive I will probably receive tons of criticism from their ungodly militant activists labeling me with the epithet of homophobe to project me as a bigot which essentially condemns my Christian faith and thus by extension criticizes the Creator of all that exists that that lifestyle an abomination (the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition uses more descriptive words to replace KJV “abomination”):

 

Leviticus 20: 13; Romans 1: 21, 24-28 (AMPC):

 

Leviticus 20: 13

13 If a man lies with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed an offense (something perverse, unnatural, abhorrent, and detestable); they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

 

Romans 1: 21, 24-28

21 Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and [a]godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.

 

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin],

25 Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it).

26 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one,

27 And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another—men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own [a]bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.

28 And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,

 

Did you know your Public School system just might be so anti-Christian that it may punish their Christian students standing with God’s Word when offended by LGBTQ brainwashing? Lebanon High School in Ohio is punishing High School student Gabby Helsinger for plastering Bible verses by homosexual organization Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) promoting gay pride month informing readers on God’s thoughts on the homosexual lifestyle. The Lebanon High School Principal (listed as Scott Butler on the LHS website – his email: butler.scott@lebanonschools.org) proceeded to suspend Helsinger. Mommy Underground has the story.

Teen Suspended For Posting Bible Verses In Response To Gay Pride Exhibit

Gabby Helsinger

 

Being in a country where we have the freedom to express ourselves is a blessing.

 

A luxury not many countries have, openly advocating our point of view is something people have taken to soapboxes all over the nation.

 

But what happens when a backward society stifles morality, while exploiting anti-family and anti-God stances?

 

You get people who praise the wicked, while condemning those who do good.

 

An Ohio high school student is feeling the brunt of skewed liberal thinking after she was suspended by the principal for expressing her faith.

 

Fox News reported:

 

A high school student in Ohio is speaking out after she was suspended for posting Bible verses in her school in response to LGBT pride flags displayed in hallways.”

 

The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) was letting Lebanon High School know that they had a presence there by hanging LGBT flags around the building.

 

This seemingly innocuous action, as seen by the liberal population, is far from innocent. The GSA has long been known to coerce children into becoming a part of the LGBT community, as Mommy Underground has previously reported.

 

Gabby Helsinger was empathetic towards all the lost kids who get caught up in the confusion of the LGBT community, so she felt led to put up Bible verses around the school after seeing all the flags.

 

On Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” Gabby said in a now popular Facebook video. “And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”

 

The video continues, explaining why she did this thoughtful act:

 

Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help …,” said Helsinger. “They don’t need to be living in the confusion of wondering if they should be gay, bi, lesbian, trans — anything like that. And I know that God is the only way that they can be healed by that, and that’s why I did it…”

 

Unfortunately, that is not how Lebanon High School is seeing Helsinger’s actions, and without notice suspended her for targeting the schools GSA club.

 

Gabby Helsinger, a Lebanon High School student, posted a video on Facebook Friday claiming she is being punished for “targeting” the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.

 

The same day the verses were put up, sharing a little inspiration with the hopeless students at the high school, a teacher was seen by Helsinger taking the verses down.

 

Despite the inappropriate action taken by the teacher, and the clear bias of representation in the school, Helsinger did not engage the teacher or start any conflict.

 

Thinking the peaceful attempt at expressing her faith at school was over, Helsinger came to school the following day as usual.

 

However, she explains on Facebook how her day took a turn for the worse. She states:

 

The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is because ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization,’”

 

This is impossible, seeing that Helsinger “did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”

 

A Bible verse is not rude, disrespectful, or abusive.

 

Helsinger was questioned by the principal, according to her video, asking her why she did what she did, in which she replied that she wanted “to spread the word of God.”

 

Then the principal wanted to know if she had “permission” to put up Bible verses. She responded that she didn’t know you needed permission, because students put notes on lockers all the time.

 

It is wrong that this principal targeted a Bible believing student for something that is not against school policy, reprimanding her and taking away her right to express her faith.

 

Faithwire reports on Lebanon City School superintendent’s response to the event, stating how the school’s Code of Conduct “does not prohibit the sharing or posting of religious text or imagery at school.”

 

Bring your bible.org specializes in the laws that pertain to religious freedoms in public schools, and they report:

 

In general, students can voluntarily express their personal and religious beliefs to their classmates through verbal or written expressions, as long as they follow school policy and do not engage in these activities during classroom or instruction time. Schools can enforce reasonable limits on times and locations for where students are allowed to distribute materials. But these regulations must be applied equally to all students. That means schools cannot impose an outright ban on religious-themed materials if they already allow students to distribute non-religious materials.”

 

Fox News tried to get a comment from Scott Butler, the principal who unjustly sentenced Helsinger to suspension. He simply responded:

 

“We do not publicly discuss the discipline of individual students. In general, when a student violates the Student Code of Conduct, there are consequences for those actions.”

 

But as we know, the superintendent already verified that the Code of Conduct was not broken.

 

Butler is not facing any repercussion that has been reported since bullying a girl for believing in something different than him.

 

This kind of bias and persecution of religious expression in public schools is widespread and inexcusable.

 

Don’t fall victim to liberal bullying, and let your state officials know when your child’s freedoms are violated.

 

Please let us know in the comments section if you have a child who has been targeted for believing in the Bible.

Genocide of Christians Reaches “Alarming Stage”


If someone ever tells you there is a Moderate Islam and a Radical Islam and the latter is not representative of Islam, that person is an outright liar or is deceived into believing a lie.

 

It’s kind of like telling a Jewish Holocaust Survivor there is a Moderate Nazi and a Radical Nazi.

The horror that is Islam is being experienced NOW by Christians in Muslim dominated nations. Can you say GENOCIDE?

Genocide of Christians Reaches “Alarming Stage”

 

By Raymond Ibrahim
May 26, 2019 at 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

  • Many of the world’s most persecuted Christians have nothing whatsoever to do with colonialism or missionaries. Those most faced with the threat of genocide — including Syria’s and Iraq’s Assyrians or Egypt’s Copts — were Christian several centuries before the ancestors of Europe’s colonizers became Christian and went missionizing

 

  • The BBC report highlights “political correctness” as being especially responsible for the West’s indifference….

 

  • Among the worst persecutors are those that rule according to Islamic law, or Sharia — which academics such as Georgetown University’s John Esposito insist is equitable and just. In Afghanistan (ranked #2), “Christianity is not permitted to exist.”

UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt (pictured) commissioned an “Independent Review into the global persecution of Christians,” which was recently published. (Photo by Jack Taylor/Getty Images)

 

Christian persecution ‘at near genocide levels,'” the title of a May 3 BBC report, cites a lengthy interim study ordered by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and led by Rev. Philip Mounstephen, the Bishop of Truro.

 

According to the BBC report, one in three people around the world suffer from religious persecution, with Christians being “the most persecuted religious group”. “Religion ‘is at risk of disappearing’ in some parts of the world,” it noted, and “In some regions, the level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN.”

 

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is also quoted on why Western governments have been “asleep” — his word — concerning this growing epidemic:

 

“I think there is a misplaced worry that it is somehow colonialist to talk about a religion [Christianity] that was associated with colonial powers rather than the countries that we marched into as colonisers. That has perhaps created an awkwardness in talking about this issue—the role of missionaries was always a controversial one and that has, I think, also led some people to shy away from this topic.”

 

Whatever the merits of such thinking, the fact is that many of the world’s most persecuted Christians have nothing whatsoever to do with colonialism or missionaries. Those most faced with the threat of genocide — including Syria’s and Iraq’s Assyrians or Egypt’s Copts — were Christian several centuries before the ancestors of Europe’s colonizers became Christian and went missionizing.

 

The BBC report highlights “political correctness” as being especially responsible for the West’s indifference, and quotes Hunt again in this regard: “What we have forgotten in that atmosphere of political correctness is actually the Christians that are being persecuted are some of the poorest people on the planet.”

 

Although the BBC report has an entire heading titled and devoted to the impact of “political correctness,” ironically, it too succumbs to this contemporary Western malady. For while it did a fair job in highlighting the problem, it said nothing about its causes — not one word about who is persecuting Christians, or why.

 

The overwhelming majority of Christian persecution, however, evidently occurs in Muslim majority nations. According to Open Doors’ World Watch List 2019 [WWL], which surveys the 50 nations where Christians are most persecuted, “Islamic oppression continues to impact millions of Christians.” In seven of the absolute worst ten nations, “Islamic oppression” is the cause of persecution. “This means, for millions of Christians—particularly those who grew up Muslim or were born into Muslim families—openly following Jesus can have painful consequences,” including death.

 

Among the worst persecutors are those that rule according to Islamic law, or Sharia — which academics such as Georgetown University’s John Esposito insist is equitable and just. In Afghanistan (ranked #2) , “Christianity is not permitted to exist,” says the WWL 2019, because it “is an Islamic state by constitution, which means government officials, ethnic group leaders, religious officials and citizens are hostile toward” Christians. Similarly, in Somalia, (#3), “The Christian community is small and under constant threat of attack. Sharia law and Islam are enshrined in the country’s constitution, and the persecution of Christians almost always involves violence.” In Iran (#9), “society is governed by Islamic law, which means the rights and professional possibilities for Christians are heavily restricted.”

 

Equally telling is that 38 of the 50 nations making the WWL 2019 are Muslim majority.

 

Perhaps the BBC succumbed to silence concerning the sources of Christian persecution — that is, succumbed to “the atmosphere of political correctness” which it ironically highlighted — because in its own report, it did not rely on the WWL. The problem with this interpretation is that the study the BBC did rely on, the Bishop of Truro’s, is saturated with talk concerning the actual sources of Christian persecution. In this regard, the words “Islam” and “Islamist” appear 61 times; “Muslim” appears 56 times in this review on persecuted Christians.

 

Here are a few of the more significant quotes from the Bishop of Truro’s report:

 

  • “The persecution of Christians is perhaps at its most virulent in the region of the birthplace of Christianity—the Middle East & North Africa.”

 

  • “In countries such as Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia the situation of Christians and other minorities has reached an alarming stage.”

 

  • “The eradication of Christians and other minorities on pain of ‘the sword’ or other violent means was revealed to be the specific and stated objective of [Islamic] extremist groups in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-east Nigeria and the Philippines.”

 

  • “[T]here is mass violence which regularly expresses itself through the bombing of churches, as has been the case in countries such as Egypt, Pakistan, and Indonesia.”

 

  • “The single-greatest threat to Christians [in Nigeria] … came from Islamist militant group Boko Haram, with US intelligence reports in 2015 suggesting that 200,000 Christians were at risk of being killed… Those worst affected included Christian women and girls ‘abducted, and forced to convert, enter forced marriages, sexual abuse and torture.'”

 

  • “An intent to erase all evidence of the Christian presence [in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-east Nigeria and the Philippines] was made plain by the removal of crosses, the destruction of Church buildings and other Church symbols. The killing and abduction of clergy represented a direct attack on the Church’s structure and leadership.”

 

  • “Christianity now faces the possibility of being wiped-out in parts of the Middle East where its roots go back furthest. In Palestine, Christian numbers are below 1.5 percent; in Syria the Christian population has declined from 1.7 million in 2011 to below 450,000 and in Iraq, Christian numbers have slumped from 1.5 million before 2003 to below 120,000 today. Christianity is at risk of disappearing, representing a massive setback for plurality in the region.”

 

The BBC should be commended for (finally) reporting on this urgent issue — even if it is three years behind the times. As the Truro report correctly observes, “In 2016 various political bodies including the UK parliament, the European Parliament and the US House of Representatives, declared that ISIS atrocities against Christians and other religious minority groups such as Yazidis and Shi’a Muslims met the tests of genocide.”

 

At the very least, it appears that the BBC has stopped trying to minimize the specter of Christian persecution as it did in 2013, when this situation was just starting to reach the boiling point.

I’ve only got one week left John


Jayda Fransen is a British Conservative gal labeled by the British government and British media as a Right-Wing extremist. Why? She supports Brexit and exposes the virulent side of Islam. According to UK (and EU) Hate Speech laws limiting Free Speech, that makes her a hate-monger worthy of legal penalties.

 

Evidently confronting Muslims about passages in their revered writings is bigoted and profane according to UK/EU  Multiculturalist Hate Speech laws.

 

At any rate, Fransen is about to face a judicial sentence for unjust convictions for speaking the truth.

One week until I am sentenced

On Friday 3rd May 2019, I will learn my fate after I was found guilty of ‘Hate Speech’ in a Belfast Court last month.

 

The two year ordeal will finally come to a head a week from today after a series of dramatic arrests and countless court appearances.

 

Jayda Fransen Arrested

 

Out of the four defendants that stood trial, I was the ONLY person found guilty on all counts.

 

This just proves beyond any doubt that the State are systematically targeting me, without trying to demonstrate any fairness. 

 

I have been a political activist for five years and during that time, my life has been turned upside down:

 

  • I have been arrested more times than I can remember,

 

  • I have spent countless nights in cold grey police cells,

 

  • I have sat through hours of police interviews in complete silence,

 

  • I have stormed crowds of Islamic terrorists,

 

  • I have exposed gangs of child rapists,

 

  • I have been spat at whilst preaching the Gospel,

 

  • My home has been attacked,

 

  • My bank accounts have been closed,

 

  • I have been sued for £500,000 and lost my house,

 

  • I spent the majority of last year in prison.

 

Now it looks like I am going back to jail after what feels like just five minutes of freedom.

 

The State have put me through the wringer for the best part of five years and they aren’t finished with me yet.

 

It is no coincidence that the likes of myself and Tommy Robinson have been banned from social media and hounded by the State.

 

The reason for it is simple; we have dared to challenge the establishment.

 

Jayda Fransen – Tommy Robinson Censored

 

For years I have dedicated my life to hunting down Islamists, exposing rape gangs, challenging the corrupt government and mainstream media…

 

Now I am paying the price.

 

The British government do not care about the victims of terror attacks, or grooming gangs – they only care about covering these issues up.

 

I have given up everything I have for this cause – for my people and my nation.

 

I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

 

But where has it left me?

 

Hunted by police, demonised by the mainstream media, banished by social media platforms and caged like a wild animal.

 

All of that for simply loving my country?

 

I have had no option but to accept my fate over the past five years – I am facing that harsh reality again next Friday.

 

After the Probation Service in England doing everything in their power to ban me from my own home, I have been told Community Service here in Northern Ireland IS NOT an option.

 

Jayda Arrested Sunderland

 

So this is the final countdown for me.

 

One more week and I might well be locked back behind bars for another year of my life, simply for telling the truth.

 

A year doesn’t sound like a long time does it? Until you spend it away from your loved ones, then it feels like an eternity.

 

If I fight against this, will you help me John?

 

I have taken everything that the State has thrown at me for years, but they have driven me into the ground and I need your help to get back up.

 

I do not want to spend another year behind bars with murderers and paedophiles.

 

Please chip into my ‘fighting fund’ with whatever you can so that I can try to get the legal assistance I need to keep me out of jail.

 

You can donate towards my ‘fighting fund’ by clicking this button:

 

DONATE NOW

 

This struggle has only ever been possible for me to continue with, because I have had the backing of good, loyal people like you John.

 

Since leaving Britain First I have been ‘cut off’ from most of my support base and cast out into the cold.

 

Right now, I need your support more than ever before.

 

Thank you for staying loyal and true.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Jayda Fransen

Overcoming Free Speech Suppression in the UK


John R. Houk

As an American I find the UK’s treatment of Counterjihad activists exposing the dark side of Islam appalling. To be honest though, I also find it disappointing that a majority of UK Counterjihad activists slip down into profanity-laced profanity when their God-given Free Speech Rights are violated. In my view the profanity does not help their cause to expose Islam and more than likely raises public agreement with the UK government to hinder Free Speech Rights.

 

In America those that pay attention to UK Free Speech suppression typically have name recognition of Tommy Robinson. Robinson seems at the forefront of those receiving government persecution with oppressive Hate Speech laws created to enhance Multiculturalist ideology at the expense of Western Culture.

 

Another Counterjihad activist similar in tone and plight to Tommy Robinson yet probably less known is Jayda Fransen. Fransen gained my attention when she attempted to disseminate a video exposing UK unjust persecution that included a plea for help over that treatment. The attention getter was that Youtube restricted that platform’s usage with a warning Fransen’s video might be offensive as well as limiting sharing and embedding tools. I watched Fransen’s Youtube version and discovered she didn’t even use profanity in talking about her persecuted treatment. So I downloaded the video and uploaded it to my Facebook page then shared the Facebook version on my blogs.

And since Fransen made the effort to NOT utilize her reputed usage of profanity, I signed up on her webpage for email updates. A few days ago I received one of those email updates in which Fransen describes how she attempted to work within the UK legal system to expose her reprehensible treatment and the response she received was a notice to shut up or else.

 

Below is that email update that does include a link to donate which she can use for her legal defense fund and probably her financial situation since the UK is giving her a difficult time about where she can reside while on parole for her unjust convictions of Hate Crimes violations.

Probation have threatened me with legal action!

 

Dear John

 

As you know, the National Probation Service in England have done everything in their power to make my life as difficult as possible since my release from jail in November 2018.

 

Their latest strike against me is taking things to another level!

 

I have finally received an email response from my Probation Officer’s line manager after I asked her to explain why my Probation Officer lied in court against me.

 

She has refused to answer my question and has also said that my official complaint to Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) will not be responded to!

 

Then she threatened to take legal action against me!

 

Threat to take legal action email 4/3/19

 

After I received this threat, my Probation officer called me and repeated it over the telephone!

 

She said, “As my line manager told you, stop calling us derogatory names”.

 

When I asked her what exactly did she class as ‘derogatory’, she replied that I had called her “Evil”.

 

Can you believe that?

 

After making my life a living hell for 5 months, having me arrested at Christmas, dragging me into court and banning me from living in my own home – she is upset because I called her ‘Evil’?!

 

Jayda Fransen in front of camera

 

As if that wasn’t ridiculous enough, she went on to say that my suggestion that she might be guilty of Contempt of Court or Perjury – after she took the stand and LIED under oath at my trial – has caused upset high up in the National Probation Service as it brings their name into disrepute!

 

So now the National Probation Service are threatening me with legal action because I told you that one of their employees lied in court and I think that they are evil!

 

They will stop at nothing it seems!

 

This is just another layer of pressure intended to break me.

 

As if 9 months in prison wasn’t enough, or being forced on the run, being banned from living in my own home, having police hunting me, being arrested on a plane by armed police, being held in a police cell overnight, being dragged into court and forced to stand trial just for living in my own home – they now want to take legal action for me calling them names!

 

 

I am not prepared to be bullied and threatened by the State and then told I can’t tell anyone about it John.

 

I need to continue fighting against this pressure and I am appealing every unfair decision made against me.

 

I cannot believe I am having to appeal to a Crown Court to overturn a decision to make me homeless!

 

KentLive Headline

 

Now there is a way for me to raise money so that I can get professional advice to help me with this ongoing battle.

 

Thanks to the Knights Templar Order, there is a page dedicated to help me.

 

If you are able to chip in to my new ‘fighting fund’ then please click this button:

 

CLICK HERE TO DONATE

As soon as I walked free from prison, this pressure started and I have been battling it every single day.

 

It is draining beyond belief, but I promise you I will not give up John.

 

Thank you for continuing to support me, I need your support now more than ever.

 

Yours sincerely,

Jayda Fransen

Minnesota’s Muslim AG may get opportunity to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws on ‘remnant of patriots’


Hmm… When you read this story about the potential Free Speech restriction that might soon be coming to the State of Minnesota, you should be thinking (unless thinking becomes a thought crime too) – WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE MINNESOTA VOTERS (94% non-Muslim demographically) THINKING electing a Muslim (Keith Ellison – a supporter of CAIR [Profiles: Canary Mission, IPT & Anti-CAIR] which supports Hamas Islamic terrorism) as an Attorney General that will support Sharia Free Speech restrictions?

In shockingly Orwellian fashion, Democrats in Minnesota want to create a statewide “Task Force on Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism” that would be stacked with people devoted to Islamic doctrines calling for more anti-Semitism.

Taken in light of other recent developments in Minnesota, all signs point to a coming crackdown on free speech, say conservatives in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

“It’s putting the wolves in the henhouse,” said Minneapolis resident Debra Anderson. “It’s very scary what they are trying to do. They want to stop, want to intimidate the remnant of patriots we have in Minnesota.”

Britain Criminalizes Truth – Ask Jayda Fransen


By John  R. Houk

© March 31, 2019

 

While I was surfing around my Social Media connections I ran into a post on the soon to be dead G+ related to British Counterjihad activist Jayda Fransen. On G+ someone had shared a Youtube video of Ms. Fransen for support because she was found guilty of violating the UK’s Hate Speech laws. When I clicked to watch, a message informs you the video is unavailable on G+ but can be viewed at Youtube.

 

Ok, no problem. I clicked to go to Youtube. I get there and a content warning is plastered on the video telling you to be aware of offensive content and making sure you know that before you proceed. ALSO Youtube disabled the like, share and embed access.

 

TALK ABOUT CENSORSHIP!

I watched that roughly 9½ minute video. There is NO visual nudity, blood and gore. There is NO description of nudity, blood and gore. There is NO graphic profanity or even PG rated profanity. Now this is a lady reputed for her raw language a la fellow persecuted Counterjihadist Tommy Robinson. Jayda Fransen has the same raw language reputation. BUT NO SUCH RAW LANGUAGE IS IN HER PLEA FOR SUPPORT VIDEO censored by Youtube.

 

I’m not sure how I pulled it off due Youtube restrictions on downloading video, but I managed to do so. Since Ms. Fransen asks to share her video, I’m going to upload it to Facebook. But keep in mind I have had my share Facebook Jail and Censorship. Even if the upload is successful, Facebook may pull an unjust Youtube and restrict or remove the video under the lie it violates Facebook Community Standards.

You should be aware the British Press treats Counterjihadists as Far Right Extremist purveyors of hate. Certainly many if not most of the British Counterjihadists have a raw language issue and a past history riot provocations that both Left and Right-Wing Extremists are guilty. (Interestingly, one rarely if ever read negative reviews of Leftist provocateurs in the European Press.)

 

Below is a Press-friendly profile of Jayda Fransen – Cuz it’s her website:

 

Jayda Fransen – My Story

 

Jayda was born in South East London in 1986.

 

Jayda practised and studied law for many years before founding a recruitment consultancy.

 

Jayda has been involved in the counter jihad struggle for many years before joining Britain First.

For many years Jayda has endured police persecution and harassment at the hands of the establishment.

 

Jayda was sent to prison in March 2018 for ‘harassing’ a migrant paedophile rape gang in Ramsgate.

 

And here are some not so friendly British Press on Ms. Fransen’s Hate Speech violations and court experience. These actions – keep in mind – in America would be laughed at as crimes because have the First Amendment:

 

A former deputy leader of far-right group Britain First has been convicted of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in Belfast.

 

Jayda Fransen, 33, was found guilty over a speech at a rally in August 2017.

 

She was also convicted for separate comments at a peace wall in the city.

 

 

The judge, when convicting Fransen, of Moat Avenue in Donaghadee, County Down, described her words as “a general, vehement attack against a religious group”.

 

 

The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that: “These people are baying for our blood.”

 

She added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”

 

Those attending the rally were then told it was time for the world to come together against “the one common enemy”.

 

The judge told the court: “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”

 

He also found her guilty over a separate, filmed incident at a Belfast peace wall in December 2017.

 

‘Menacing in nature’

 

On that occasion, the court heard that Fransen declared the “Islamification” of Britain will lead to similar walls to separate the two sides.

 

She claimed the country was “descending into civil war” and said it was time to “rise up against the biggest threat against the entire world”.

 

Confirming a conviction for that episode, the judge said: “I’m satisfied the words were menacing in nature.”’ (Jayda Fransen: Ex-Britain First deputy leader convicted over hate speech; BBC; 3/29/19)

 

AND HERE:

 

‘A former deputy leader of far-right group Britain First has been convicted of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in Belfast at a rally in August 2017, according to media reports.

 

Jayda Fransen, 33, was also convicted for separate comments filmed at a peace wall in the city, the BBC reported.

 

 

The group gained international notoriety in 2017 after US President Donald Trump was condemned by the UK prime minister’s office for retweeting anti-Muslim videos posted on Fransen’s Twitter account, MEE reported. A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said at the time: “British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents – decency, tolerance and respect. It is wrong for the president to have done this.”’

 

I have to wonder how many Brits “overwhelmingly” agree with PM Theresa May?

 

Story continues…

 

‘‘The judge described Fransen’s speech as “a general, vehement attack against a religious group” and told Fransen to return to Belfast Magistrates’ Court for sentencing in May.

 

 

The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that “These people are baying for our blood,” the BBC reported.

 

She added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”

 

Those attending the rally were then told it was time for the world to come together against “the one common enemy,” the BBC said.

 

The judge told the court: “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”’ (Ex-Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen convicted of hate speech: Reports; By MEE staffMiddle East Eye; 3/30/19 21:14 UTC – Updated 3/31/18 1:20 UTC)

 

The British Judge is vehemently outraged with Jayda Fransen for telling the truth about Islam according to the theopolitical religion’s own revered writings. ERGO, she is being punished by the force of law … for telling the truth!

LOOK OUT! I Committed Blasphemy in Pakistan

I have mentioned that I operate three blogs:

 

  1. SlantRight 2.0

 

  1. NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR)

 

  1. Ubiquitous8Thoughts

 

The first is a Blogger platform. The second is a WordPress platform. And the third is an OverBlog platform (located in France under EU rules).

 

A couple of days ago I received an email from WordPress Support notifying me the government of Pakistan had contacted WordPress over one of my posts. The Support Team informed me they weren’t going to censor my blog but if I did not remove the alleged content the NCCR blog would be banned from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

 

Here is the content of the WordPress Support email:

— End complaint —

 

It looks like I will not be travelling to Pakistan anytime soon. Pakistan actually shows the legal code my “Blasphemous” content breaks.

 

So, quoting the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority:

 

Pakistan Penal Code section 295- B and is in clear violation of Section 37 of Prevention of Electronic Crime Act (PECA) 2016 and Section 19 of Constitution of Pakistan

 

I found three PDFs from Googling portions of the law I am breaking:

 

 

 

 

Of particular interest to me was from “PAKISTAN Use and abuse of the blasphemy laws,” the penalty for breaking the Blasphemy law under the heading, “2.2 Sections of the PPC amended or added during Zia-ul Haq’s Islamization drive” which is on page 7 of the PDF referencing section 295-B:

 

Several sections were inserted in the PPC in the 1980s. Section 295-B was added in 1982; it made defiling the Koran a criminal offence. It reads: “Whoever willfully [sic] defiles, damages or desecrates a copy of the Holy Koran or of an extract therefrom or uses it in any derogatory manner or for any unlawful purpose shall be punishable with imprisonment for life.” [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

In 1980, section 298-A was inserted in the PPC, by which the use of derogatory remarks “by words, … or by imputation innuendo or insinuation, directly or indirectly” in respect of persons revered in Islam, was made a criminal offence punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment. In 1986, defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad was made a criminal offence and the relevant section, 295-C added to the PPC (see below in detail).

 

Most alarming after examining further penalties heaped on is on page 8 of the PDF under the subheading, “2.3. The blasphemy law: Section 295-C PPC”:

 

In 1986 the penal code was amended by Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1986, which added the blasphemy law under section 295-C to the Pakistan Penal Code. It provided the death penalty or life imprisonment for the criminal offence of defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad. It reads:

 

“295-C: Use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of the Holy Prophet: Whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representations, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.” [Bold text by the Blog Editor]

The Court directed the government of Pakistan to effect the necessary legal changes and added, “in case this is not done by 30 April 1991 the words ‘or punishment for life’ in section 295-C, PPC, shall cease to have effect on that date”. Decisions by the Federal Shariat Court are binding on the government under Article 203-D(3) of the Constitution. The Government has the possibility to appeal against such decisions to the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court before any directive of the Federal Shariat Court takes effect. The government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not file an appeal against the decision making the death penalty the only punishment available for blasphemy. In July 1991, it announced that it had decided to amend section 295-C as directed by the court. A bill to that effect was placed before parliament in 1992. While the Senate, the upper house of parliament, unanimously adopted the bill in July 1992, the lower house of parliament discussed it at length but did not pass it. Opposition parties considered it to be too vague and …

 

Now that’s some Free Speech limitations for essentially speaking the truth and then receiving the death penalty. Pakistan’s law establishing all things Islam as supreme is not surprising since 97% of the population is Islam and of those 97%, a staggering amount are Sunni-Islam Muslims.

 

Considering the huge number of Muslims that undoubtedly accept Islamic principles in Pakistan’s rule of law, laws relating to Blasphemy are unsurprising. Just as Christian principles should be an influence in the rule of law in Western nations.

 

As far as I am concerned, Pakistan’s rule of law is a glaring example of why Islamic principles CANNOT BE ACCEPTED in the West as the rule of law, ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA WHICH HAS A BILL OF RIGHTS AS PART OF THE CONSTITUTION WHICH AFFIRMS CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS OF NATURAL LAW!

 

I responded to the WordPress Support thinking I would get some kind of reply affirming, rejecting or a mixed reaction my Free Speech stand:

 

Pakistan is in a sad state of Sharia censoring the citizens from Free Speech truth. I pray the WordPress powers that be and the blog platform’s legal team are more protective of Free Speech than Pakistan. On the other hand Pakistan is a sovereign nation and I suspect the Pakistan government is protecting its Muslim citizens (as you probably know Pakistan is overwhelmingly a Sunni-Islam majority nation) from getting upset. In Sharia, placing the prophet Muhammad in a bad light – even when factual – is a capital crime. A Pakistani Christian (**Asia Bibi) survived for nearly 9 years on death row accused of insulting Muhammad by implying Jesus was a greater person. After nine years and the failure of evidence from Bibi’s accuser, Bibi was released from prison nearly causing riots by the devout Muslim Pakistanis.

 

It’s sad but I can live with accommodating Pakistan’s request as pertaining to Pakistan. However, outside of Pakistan, I pray you honor Free Speech and not censor posts that are outside of Pakistan’s authority.

 

Thank you for your consideration and your work, [Blog Editor: The links related to Asia Bibi were not in the original email sent to WordPress Support. The double asterisks (“**”) near Asia’s name is to a recent link about Asia stuck in a secretive location in ill health and being refused medical attention. I want to bring attention to the plight of Asia Bibi and thus will posting her still horrendous treatment directly after my thoughts on Free Speech.]

 

No response or further action of notifications so far from WordPress.

 

I can live with my blogs being banned in a 97% Muslim nation. And I believe I will not be visiting Pakistan anytime soon … or ever.

‘Everyone is Worried’: Asia Bibi ‘Very Unwell’ in Pakistani Safe House, Being Denied Medical Care

 

Asia Bibi

 

By Will Maule, Faithwire

03-11-2019

CBN News

 

Asia Bibi, the mother of five who spent almost a decade on death row for a crime she did not commit, is reported to be in dire physical condition as she continues to be held in a safe house in the Pakistani city of Karachi. Bibi, 53, was acquitted of blasphemy last October after the Supreme Court ruled that the accusations had no evidential basis. Since then, Bibi has been granted asylum in Canada, but as yet has not been released from her home country.

 

What Is The Latest?

 

According to a source quoted in The Daily Mail, Bibi is “very unwell” and being denied medical care while holed up in a safe house with “low blood pressure.”

 

“Everyone is very worried,” the source explained. “She won her appeal and was supposed to be out of Pakistan by now.”

 

Despite the fact that Bibi’s children are now safely in Canada, the Pakistani government has wanted to seek assurances from the embattled mother that she will not speak ill of her home country upon leaving. There is still no indication of when exactly Bibi will finally evade the clutches of the country that has caused her so much strife.

 

“Even though the government says she can leave, the army has all the power in this case,” the source added. “They are in control of her. They are fearful about getting a negative press if she speaks out about her experiences – but they will get an even worse press if she dies in protective custody.”

 

British officials recently stated that the Pakistani government has “confirmed that Asia Bibi is free to make her own decisions and to leave Pakistan,” but the realities of this case speak of a very different story indeed.

 

Many are calling on prominent church leaders, such as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, to do more on Bibi’s behalf.

 

 

For now, Asia and her husband, Ashiq Masih, remain in Pakistan with little idea as to when they will be allowed to leave.

 

What Is The Background?

 

Bibi was initially arrested back in 2009 after supposedly entering into an argument with a group of women about a source of drinking water. The Islamist women accused Bibi of drinking from the same tap as them, to which Bibi allegedly responded, “Jesus Christ died for my sins. What did the prophet Muhammad do for you?” a remark which they believed offended their revered religious figure.

 

However, in the Supreme Court’s final judgment, it declared that the two sisters who accused Bibi “had no regard for the truth,” before adding that “the said semi-literate young sisters had a reason to level allegations against the appellant which could be untrue.”

 

The landmark judgment also noted that the prosecution’s presented evidence in the case “was nothing short of concoction incarnate.”

 

“Her conviction is set aside and she is to be relieved forthwith if not required in other charges,” said Chief Justice Saqib Nisar in the astonishingly bold ruling, as reported by The Guardian.

 

But the court’s statement went even further, implying that Bibi had been subject to clear-cut prejudice in her arrest and trial.

 

“It is ironical that in the Arabic language the appellant’s name Asia means ‘sinful,’” read the judgment written by Justice Asif Khosa, “but in the circumstances of the present case she appears to be a person, in the words of Shakespeare’s King Lear, ‘more sinned against than sinning.’”

 

The radicals, however, have remained bloodthirsty from the very day Bibi was arrested.

 

Prior to her acquittal, in Pakistan’s second-largest city of Lahore, hundreds of protesters gathered together and chanted “Hang infidel Asia.” Sickeningly, the hashtag #HangAsiaDefend295C was trending among the religious extremists on Twitter, with the “295C” referring to section 295-C of Pakistan’s penal code, which makes it a criminal offense to blaspheme against the Prophet Muhammad.

 

What Does The Blasphemy Law Actually Say?

 

According to the Penal Code itself, 295-B refers to the prohibiting of “Defiling, etc., of Holy Qur’an,” and 295-C is in reference to the “use of derogatory remarks, etc., in respect of the Holy Prophet.” Other violations not specific to Islam contained in Pakistan’s criminal laws include “trespassing on burial places” and “disturbing religious assembly.”

 

Those who have chosen to support Bibi’s cause have faced grave consequences. In addition to the threat against Bibi, her family and the justices involved in her acquittal, other prominent politicians have lost their lives in the pursuit of religious freedom.

 

In 2011, shortly after Bibi’s conviction, Punjab Governor Salman Taseer was brutally murdered for speaking out in support of the wrongly convicted Christian woman. Shot dead on the streets of Islamabad, his own bodyguard was found guilty of the heinous crime and, though sentenced to death himself, he has since become a cult hero with a large shrine in his honor erected on the outskirts of the capital city.

 

Just two months later, Christian politician and outspoken critic of the blasphemy laws, Shahbaz Bhatti, was also assassinated — shot dead by the Pakistani Taliban as he traveled to work.

 

Do continue to pray for Asia Bibi as she does everything in her power to flee Pakistan.
