Sharia laws effectivly enforced in United Kingdom

Britain has denied entry to the Florida pastor who said last year that he was “praying about” whether to burn Qurans to protest the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Pastor Terry Jones foolishly wanted to burn copies of the Koran to make a point, but being foolish is not a crime.

The government opposes extremism in all its forms which is why we have excluded Pastor Terry Jones from the UK,” a Home Office spokesperson said in a statement. “Numerous comments made by Pastor Jones are evidence of his unacceptable behavior.”

Jones vowed to take legal action to change the decision. He said he had planned to go to Britain February 9 and to spend a week to 10 days there with his church group. He has been invited to speak at several rallies in England and do book signings, he said.

His book, “Islam Is of the Devil,” is ranked at number 960,762 by Amazon.com.

My comments;

For the British government to deny entry to a US citizen because of “his unacceptable behavior” staggers the imagination when one considers what kind of “behavior” is routinely allowed and even protected by law there.

As we have said before on this blog, it’s a good thing that Pastor Jones didn’t go ahead with his plans to burn the Koran because it would have sent a signal that Christians are afraid of this book. It is always a sign of weakness to burn books. It is better for people to read them so they can know whether the ideas they contain are good or bad.

But Pastor Jones has never done or even threatened to do anything illegal or anything that would have been outside the bounds of freedom of expression. For the UK to ban him from visiting only proves that the UK is afraid of what he has to say, and how their Moslem citizens would react to his presence there.

The UK gave birth too many good things, including many of our modern ideas about individual freedom, democracy and Christian Zionism. But in 2011 it is rapidly turning into a country held hostage by its own people.

The population of the UK is largely of a radically atheist/secular ideological orientation and there is a growing and aggressive Moslem minority that wins many confrontations through intimidation and the threat of violence. There is also a growing revival, especially in Scotland, of paganism related to ancient Celtic mysticism and druidism.

As Islam continues to ascend in this post-Christian society which is still one of the most important players on the world stage, we need to pray for the remnant of Bible believing Christians that are still clinging to the Gospel and (we hope) still trying to share it with their neighbors and friends. There isn’t much hope for England, but what there is lies with them.

  1. I do remember this guy. With all due respect, I am amazed no muslims retaliated after his spectacle of wanting to burn their book.

    Now I’m not saying that all muslims are violent, but that some would have probably liked to.

    But the Word of Christ does tell us never repay evil for evil. And as for this man calling himself a pastor, I think he needs a refresher course on how to lead souls to Jesus Christ with humility.

  2. I have to say that your title “Sharia laws effectivly enforced in United Kingdom” is sensationalist and inaccurate. The UK government has also denied entry to leaders of muslims who promote hatred, which is exactly what the proposed book burning did. He’s an extremist with a tiny following, and he could provoke a riot, so I can understand why he’s been banned.

    1. Dear Martin.

      Shalom.

      The difference between a Muslim that gives threats of violence and killings, and Terry Jones is obvious. Jones warns against men that should be locked out of any free and democratic nation. I agree that the title is written to trigger a debate.

      But reflect on this for a second: Sharia Laws in Saudi Arabia do keep men from Iran outside. Just like not all Muslims are allowed to enter the Islamic Kingdom of England.
