Fascist Boris Johnson strikes against Christian charity by suppressing an advert on London buses
"...everything in the State, nothing against the State, nothing outside the State".
When evil is weak, it demands "tolerance", when strong it cannot itself tolerate opposition; in fact, it strives might and main to suppress any opposition, as evil hates and fears truth. So it is with the homosexualist movement.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, (who masquerades as a "conservative") is, in reality, a hankerer after fascism. How so? Consider his homosexualist reaction to an advert placed on London buses by the Christian organization, The Core Issues Trust (funding also received from a group named, Anglican Mainstream). The advert was a response to the militant homosexualist organization, "Stonewall".
Johnson imposed - what amounts to - his fascist censorship upon the Christian charity with the usual nonesensical claim that it was "offensive", banning the advert. Core Issues Trust has sought court action to overturn the ruling.
The immediate spiritual tragedy of this is that there is a strong movement afoot that seeks to block outreach to persons suffering from same-sex attraction. The banning of this advert bodes badly for Christians who seek to spread the Gospel message of repentance and reconciliation with God; who seek to reach out to persons suffering from homosexual attraction with the truth of the Gospels.
But it goes deeper than just the inability of Christians bringing the Gospel to those persons who practice homosexuality. It goes to the State's motivation and involvement in dictating and imposing forms of morality inimical to the Gospels. The motivation is fascist. Consider the words of the Italian jackel (in the words of Churchill), Mussolini:
The Fascist conception of the State is all embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism, is totalitarian, and the
Thus it was inevitable that the Catholic Church crossed swords with the Jackel. In our day, the British jackel, Johnson, is seeking to impose a totalitarian conception of State "values", outside of which opposition cannot exist, nor have any value. In the United States, not to be outdone, the American Jackel, Obama, persecutes nuns and others who dissent from his totalitarian will to impose morally unacceptable practices via his "Obamacare". And so on. Who would have thought that the once great fighters against totalitarianism are gradually, under the seductive lure of moral relativism, giving rise to a thinly disguised form of totalitarianism, which will, unless stopped, metamorphosis into open fascism. Be prepared. Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI warned us. In fact, Pope Benedict addressed prophetic words to the US bishops, warning of totalitarianism and a grave crisis. Be prepared for persecution.
