Yup, you read it right. Camden Council has indeed banned God. Not just any God though, the Christian God. The big cahuna of white beard and flowy robes God who'll visit plagues on your house and send in the floods if he gets a bit narked.
In a quite appalling decision, Camden Council has decreed that a Christian campaign group must remove all mention of 'God' from their posters highlighting climate change. Their 'reasoning' is that the use of the words 'God' and 'Christian' would cause offence to people from different religious backgrounds and they operate a policy against the promotion of religious ideas. No really. That's what they're saying.
But, interestingly, the article goes on to state that Camden Council are quite happy to provide enquirers with details of no fewer than 13 mosques, Muslim study groups and Islamic social groups in the area.
Taking away the fact that it is largely the soft-liberal Christians whose culture of appeasement has brought about this quite ridiculous state of affairs in the first place, it does beg the bigger question of just how far down the road we have to go before the people of this country rise up and say 'No More!'?
Because once again, we see quite clearly another example of the protracted and insidious tactics being deployed by those on the left in their continued effort to undermine and destroy the society around us. This isn't going to go away if the Conservatives win the next election, the 5th Column placemen are now so firmly entrenched in every level of our local and national government that it is going to take at least 2/3 generations to weed out and destroy the cockroaches who are infesting this country.
I was always of the mind that the McCarty witch-hunts were a disproportionate response to a largely imaged threat that did more harm than good. Now I am not so sure, and I find that most troubling as both a Libertarian and a Conservative.
