Danish dhimmis protect the Quran, but not the Bible…

23denmark-01-master768A man who set fire on a copy of the Quran is the first Danish national charged with blasphemy in 46 years.

The 42-year-old man, who remains unidentified, filmed himself burning the Muslim holy book in his garden in north Jutland in December 2015, and then posted the video on Facebook.

In 1997, a Danish artist burned a copy of the Bible on a news show by a state broadcaster but was not charged.

Some religions enjoy the protections of the law, others not.

The two dignitaries lead a joint pilgrimage of Catholic and Protestant clergy to the Holy Land in order to manifest the spirit of brotherhood and reconciliation between the two confessions. But what they really have manifested is a spirit of submission. Continue reading

European “Humanists” have withdrawn their Anti-Hungary ECI

siteon0The militantly anti-religious “European Humanist Federation” has silently withdrawn its European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) called “Wake up Europe – Act for Democracy”. The ambition of that initiative had been to overturn the democratically elected government of an EU Member State, namely the government of Hungary led by the social-conservative Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. As the EHF claim, this was not due to lack of support, but rather to the insight that the ECI “was not the appropriate way to address this sensitive and complex issue”.

In the meantime, Viktor Orbán continues on his successful reform path. One of his latest achievements is to have set up a new department to assist persecuted Christians in the Middle East with an initial budget of $3.35 million.

Is the EU at last going to deal with some real human rights issues???

No, we are not talking about the “homo- or transphobia” myths, on which various departments of the European Commission or the European Parliament are wasting huge amounts of public money – with the sole effect of making many European citizens wonder about the usefulness of institutions that seem obsessed with such non-issues.

The human rights discourse has not yet completely been turned into a roadshow of perverse sexual exhibitionisms. Indeed, the appointment of the Slovak Politician Jan Figel’ as the EU’s first “Special Envoy for the promotion of freedom of religion or belief outside the EU” seems to indicate that there is a growing sense that there are also some real human rights issues that might be dealt with – or to which one might at least pay some lip-service.
