Post Yet more Christians silenced in Europe, and in America...

Homosexual groups are celebrating in Europe this week as once more they have triumphed in a court of law over believing Christians. The European Court of Human Rights upheld decisions of British courts that had decided homosexual rights trump the rights of Christians whose faith teaches them homosexuality is wrong.

Yet more Christians silenced in Europe, and in America...

No, it’s more than that. It’s a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

Several major problems with this article, the most prominent of which:

1. Apparently the writer conveniently missed the massive anti-gay protests in France the other way, which, by the way, passed peacefully. Nobody stopped or attacked the protesters.

2. "The European Court of Human Rights upheld decisions of British courts that had decided homosexual rights trump the rights of Christians whose faith teaches them homosexuality is wrong."
Christians are allowed to believe whatever they want and nobody is forcing them to be gay, so their rights aren't being infringed.

3. Nobody has actually been fired for voicing concerns about homosexuality, unless it interfered with their job, as was the case with the councillor mentioned. He was NOT fired for 'simply voicing his concern'.

4. "thirst of homosexuals"? "Homosexual groups are jubilant that freedom of religion has taken a beating by the court?" how anyone can type this with a straight face and then claim Christians are being prosecuted is beyond me. Although, to be fair, it gives teh gays a very good reason for prosecution.

5. Most people in the UK would resent your implication that they share a mentality with the EU.

6. If this is supposed to be about the loss of European morale, why does the article go on about similar situations in the US? If anything that shows the US is just as 'bad' (and I'm using the term loosely). Or might it be that the author doesn't know much about Europe (see above).

Not that any of it matters because...

Austin Ruse is one the major Right-Wing nut bags in the world. You can pretty much discount everything he says.

No Christian has lost any right. Government workers don't have the right not to do their civil service duties because they don't feel like it.

I dont think Europe lost their morale - but rather morals.
And i am ashamed America is following their lead.

Because you are both experts on Europe, of course?

How did last week's protests in France not make your headlines?
