Anglican Bishop: «Admire Taliban for their faith and loyalty»

The Taliban can be admired for their conviction to their faith and their sense of loyalty to one another, the new bishop for the British Armed Forces has claimed.

Faithful and loyal Taliban members are beheading two people. Their faith is to be admired, says Anglican Bishop.

The Rt Rev Stephen Venner called for a more sympathetic approach to the Islamic fundamentalists that recognises their humanity.

The Church of England’s Bishop to the Forces warned that it will be harder to reach a peaceful solution to the war if the Afghan insurgents are portrayed too negatively.

His comments came as the Prime Minister visited Afghanistan and warned that the Taliban was fighting a «guerilla war» aimed at causing «maximum damage». Gordon Brown said soldiers were discovering improvised explosive devices every two hours.

Bishop Venner stressed his admiration for the sacrifices made by the British forces fighting in Afghanistan but also urged the need for a reassessment of how the Taliban are viewed.

«We’ve been too simplistic in our attitude towards the Taliban», said Bishop Venner, who was recently commissioned in his new role by Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

«There’s a large number of things that the Taliban say and stand for which none of us in the west could approve, but simply to say therefore that everything they do is bad is not helping the situation because it’s not honest really«

«The Taliban can perhaps be admired for their conviction to their faith and their sense of loyalty to each other».

Besides their attacks on the armed forces, the Taliban have also been responsible for public beatings, amputations and executions and have launched bomb attacks on the civilian population in Afghanistan.

The bishop said that some of their methods of combat are not honourable or acceptable, but argued that it was unhelpful to demonize them.

A girl has been beheaded by Muslims in Indonesia.

Earlier this year, Peter Davies, the mayor of Doncaster, claimed that British society could learn from Taliban family values. He said that under the Taliban, Afghanistan had an «ordered system of family life».

My comment:

The Anglican Bishop does his best to pave the way for the new religion of all faiths. The message is that «God is good», and even the Taliban has to be included among the children of the Most High.

This utter non sense, and can only come out of the mouth of someone who serves the anti-Messiah. The Anglican Church seems to be full of such priests and Bishops.

Islam is a false religion, and Taliban soldiers and the Muslims in Afghanistan alike, are on their way to hell. Likewise with this Anglican Bishop, if he does not repent and tell people the truth.

    1. Dear Francis.

      Shalom, and welcome back to this site.

      I fully agree with you. Religion is good for nothing. The living God wants us to have a personal relationship with Him, based on mercy and grace. This is the New Covenant, established by the saving blood of Jesus of Nazareth.

  1. ‘jesus’ is naught but the transliteration of a pagan latin catholic word ‘iesus’ which was the transliteration of the pagan greek ‘iesous’.

    And Truth testifies that The Messiah’s G-D given birth name was Hebrew…….

    Y’shua is The Son of The ONE and Only True Living G-D and Father(Creator) of ALL…….

    And New Yerusalem of The New Covenant is Heavenly, not of this earth……. of The Spirit and untouched by the hand of a natural man…….

    Regarding “the children of the promise”, they are not of those who “run for it or who would will it to be so”, such children are of The Only True G-D, “HE WHO bestowed Mercy”…….

    “Be not moved away from the Hope of The Good News”…….

    Father Help! and HE does…….

    Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(religion) that is of this world……. francis

    1. Dear Francis

      Shalom, and thank you for this important comment.

      You are right. The mother of Jesus called Him «Y´shua», which in Hebrew means salvation. The mother of Jesus was supposed to call him «Immanuel», which means «God who dwell with us».

      I cant read Hebrew, neither can I write this language. So the message has to be translated to me.

      What I know, is that The Hebrew Bible says the Messiah will be called with many names:

      Isaiah 9:6
      For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

      In my language, there is hardly any words that starts with -Y- The Word -Y- would not be pronounced »Je»`shua, but something very odd and different. Like in Hebrew, there is no letter -J-, that makes the name -J-esus look very odd to Jews.

      But among my people, its more easy to call this Son, this Child, God the Messiah for «Jesus». He who has saved us by his blood, the Jew who died on the cross, and is risen from the grave. And I know that my savior and Master do not mind me calling on Him in the name of Jesus.

      Praise be Y´shua.

  2. Want naught to do with your “imag”ined ‘jesus’…….

    But an “imag”ined name given to one head of the three headed pagan catholic/christian ‘g-d’ less than 600 years ago…….

    Simply, your ‘jesus’ is the son of ‘d’evil…….

    1. Dear Francis.

      Shalom, and thanks for commenting.

      Jesus was called a lot of things by the teachers of the law, and the rulers of His days. Like mad man, imposer, processed by an evil Spirit, and dreamer. But they hated him without reason. Because the Messiah did only good. He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and comforted the sad and sorrowful. So, Francis. Go and do likewise.

      Ultimately Jesus payed for the sins of mankind with His own blood. Also your sins.

      1. Ultimately those who followed the “imag”ined pagan catholic/chrisitan ‘jesus’ will be of the multitudes who will hear those woe-filled words, “depart from Me, for I never knew you” ;-(

        Yet there are those, who in ignorance yet use the “imag”ined name of ‘jesus’, who will not hear such doom-filled words.

        As for “Immanuel” it would be good for you to realize that The Messiah did not become “Immanuel” until He was immersed in, of, by and thru The Holy, Set Apart, Spirit.

        It then became as Paul testified, “GOD was in The Messiah”, not ‘god was the messiah”…….

        Immanuel, The Messiah, is The Son of The ONE and Only True Living GOD, Father(Creator) of ALL…….

        Thankfully The Messiah’s GOD and Father is my GOD and Father!

        All Thanks And Praise Be Unto Our Father!

        Father Help! and HE does…….

  3. Shalom Aleichem, Ivarfjeld,

    Lord bless you for your patience with divisive folks. 🙂 It is not easy. But most moments of living a transformed life in a fallen world aren’t.

    You’re right in calling legalism what it is. A true follower of the Lord is marked not by the specific words he uses, but by the transformed, loving, sin-hating, God-glorifying, peace-loving, cross-centered humility in his life.

    And if calling Him Jesus, Yeshu, Isa, Yeh’Sou, Iesus, or whatever else is sinful, let us be thankful that Christ died for ALL the sins of His people, including those we are unaware or unconvinced that we commit.

    There will be many people devotedly calling Him Y’shua, to whom He will say, “I never knew you.” Rather than asking what Jesus was called, we should ask what He did for us (Romans 5:6-11) and what He commands of us (Mark 1:15).

    Lord bless you, my friend. 🙂 Keep the Gospel foremost.

  4. all i can say is that this arsehole venner is a misguided fool, why would anyone want to suck up to such an evil bunch of murderous bastards,they need to be wiped out, not praised !! twat !!

    1. Dear John Oram.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site

      Filthy language will not be accepted on this site. If you continue in such a manner, I will spam you. Kindly express your self in not insulting manners.

  5. Oh Ivar.

    This is the first time I’ve seen this article. That poor girl. This is horrible, and so sad. These muslims are horrible for doing such a thing.

    2 Timothy 3 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

    This is another sign that our King is near!

  6. The religions of this world know nothing of The Life…….

    islam, judaism, catholicism, christianity,,,,etc…….

    Religions of this world, all alike they are,
    For their clones have fought, killed and died both near and far ;-(

    Then once a week or multiple times a day they may pray,
    Yet as hypocrites they begin each new day ;-(

    Days that are filled with deceit and lies,
    For in a religious system Truth can not abide…….

    And so it is that the fruit of death is born of religious ways,
    For life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play ;-(

    “But I say unto you, Love Your Enemies”!

    Since that commandment was uttered by The Messiah, pagan
    catholicism and her harlot christian daughters have killed
    multiplied millions in the name of their three headed pagan
    g-d ;-( And so it is that “the pot is calling the kettle black” ;-(

    “Come Out of her, MY people”!

    Come Out of this wicked world and it’s systems of religion,
    for “the WHOLE(not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one”(1JN5:19) indeed and Truth…….

    Truth IS, a lie never was and is not…….

    Abide in Truth……. francis

  7. At the anglican Bishop : 1. You are a devil 2. The Taliban are not bad ! They only try to defend her countrys and her families !

    1. Aldi,

      You saying the Taliban are not bad is like saying there is no sun in the sky. Both are not true.

      The Taliban’s purpose is to kill whoever do not follow them.

      2 Timothy 3

      2For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

  8. WTF!! do u think if a crime happens in every country, their religions should be blamed? what a crap! i am Indonesian, no any law like that here. This is such a Big LIAR

    1. Bunga,

      Crime certainly does not come from a believer in Christ, for the Bible tells us how we should behave.

      Ephesians 4:31-Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

  9. The Anglican church has descended from its once responsible and respectable function as protector and promoter of protestant doctrines in England, into a confused, divided, humanistic, aetheist, deist, corrupted and almost entirely Christless apostacy. The men who run it are mostly unconverted, they do not, cannot or will not accept the Bible literally, Many are freemasons. They have overseen the ongoing and relelntless mockery of authentic Biblical precepts and authority, and overseen the substitution of Bible truth with “mere rules (or opinions) taught by men”. They have corrupted the spiritual life of the nation with their pious obsession with bible criticism, self centred theological inventions, marxist social crusades, sexual politics and inane interfaith dialogue.
    My God, England was the place where real men of God, Bishops and Archbishops as well as humble laity, willingly died at the stake to preserve the work of the protestant reformation. Those martyrs totally rejected the dogmas and superstitions of popery not loving their lives even unto death……Now the anglican leaders (Stephen Sizer is another one) want to be seen as friends of Islam, pagan druids, gay friendly, creep around the vatican, and some are even hell-bent on realigning with romish papal authority…..Lord deliver us from this insanity….
    Shalom, Jonathan

  10. you Liar ……are you from Inquisition ???
    your bibl say …

    Now go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him; but put to death both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.'”
