Godless Socialists

Tonight the Labour leadership hopefuls participate in a Christian Socialist Movement hustings in London. Apart from Andy Burnham, are any of them actually practicing Christians? Aren’t they mostly atheists?

          • £12M on security for the Popes visit is money well spent if the dirty kiddy fiddling bastards can’t get their hands on our kids

          • equity abhors a Maxim says:

            The issue of paying for the visit of a Head of State is probably tied up in reams of unavoidable precedent. The thing is, the Vatican is not a State (for some reason the Wikipedia explanation for this has been amended).

          • we’re just playing safe by trying to avoid another millipead supported war of aggression against another Muslim nation where both innocent Muslims and British soldiers get killed.

      Fuck the Pope. That’s what his sad, lonely priests have been doing to young people for decades. Let’s hope the whole hypocritical Vatican edifice crumbles to dust as the appalling abuse scandal widens and engulfs more and more parishes.

        Apropos of nothing says:

        That’s what a cabal of corrupt, gay Bishops have been doing for 40 years against the wishes of their laity citing Vatican II as an excuse for liberalisation and substituting ‘treatment’ and ‘discretion’ (just as the academic community recommended) instead of the defrocking and disgrace that was usual before 1968.

        This pope has been fighting the liberal bishops for decades and he’s now winning.

        • 39

          cant hunter says:

          All this anti popery is, as far as i’m concerned, rather short sighted. In the decades to come, when the Anglican church has become a social group of mostly earnest defeatist liberals and beyond salvation ( and parody), the only body that will be resistant to the march of Islam in Europe as a whole will be the Catholic church. All other bodies and institutions will have melted away..the C of E, parliament, the monarchy,the universities, etc.

          • Rubbish

            Atheism will lead the fight against Islam.

            The thing Islam fears the most is atheism.

          • Eye eye, a tollah says:

            The thing that will sink Islam in Britain is their young people being seduced by sex and drugs and rock and roll.

          • Anon says:

            OH, Deism is my current postion: He kicked things off and then found something more interesting to do.

          • Enjineer says:

            Agree with OH.

            I think fundamentalism (be it Islamic or otherwise) is a stage in the death of religion as anything more than a hobby, like the CoE – essentially a social club for the middle classes the world has left behind.

            As someone said above economic development, education and good old sex drugs and rock and roll are slowly eroding religious support among the young.

            Fundamentalists have nothing to offer, and can obtain power only by violence and opression. In the long run, that is a losing strategy. It might take 100 years or more, but it’s over. The fundies will slowly die off and shrink in umber until they are an irrelevance.

          • Audrey Worthington says:

            OH, Engineer

            Sorry you havent a clue what you’re talking about. You completely misunderstand the forces you are up against.

            How many atheists are prepared to blow themselves up for something they dont believe in???

            Useful idiots. Its because of sex, drugs and rock n roll that they will be able to take over because their enemy are completely weak and distracted that they will allow them.

          • Enjineer says:

            >How many atheists are prepared to blow themselves up for something >they dont believe in???

            Er, what?

            So no individual ever in the course of human history has sacrificed their life for a cause they believe in other than religion? Like politics? Equal rights? Workers rights? Patriotism?

            There are 0 althiests’ in Afgahnistan right now putting their lives on the line fighting fundamentalist whack-jobs?

            Give your head a wobble you tit.

            I would suggest there are plenty of both atheists, agnostics and religious moderates who would be prepared to fight to avoid living under a repressive theocracy. Be it an Islamic, Christian or Scientologist.

            Liberal society, economic development and scientific advancement have been slowly marginalising organised religion for the last 1000 years. The fundamentalists will simply be increasing marginalised and will ultimately fade into history. I’m not saying it won’t take a long time, and there will not be blood spilled along the way – but I think it is inevitable.

      Appalling to know there’s plenty of money to subsidize the Pope’s visit while the school building programme has to be cut.

      Taxpayers should spend no more on the visit by the Head of the Vatican City State than they would on the visit by the head of any other state with the same resident population.

      Perhaps the Vatican City State should take the opportunity to make it clear whether or not their Head of State the current pope claims the right to depose our Head of State Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the same way that his predecessor Pius V purported to depose her predecessor Elizabeth I.
      Would not maintaining such a claim be treason?

      Many socialists trace their convictions back to Christian teachings but since about the time of the first world war, adherents of Marxist-Leninist thinking have actively discouraged the religious element as it conflicted with Soviet atheism.

      It is always funny to see lefties trying for the bible bashers. The front cover of Private Eye showing Sunny Jim Callaghan standing outside a church with two children. The speech bubble from one of the children went something like, ” I didn’t know you went to church Daddy”. to which his speech bubble replies, ” I do around election time!”

    If Jesus had been a member of the Labour Party, he would never have been able to manage with just a few loaves and fishes to feed the 5,000.

    ……. if he had been Labour, Jesus would have employed 2,500 of the crowd to hand out food to the rest and if anyone had told Jesus he might have to make do with less employees he’d have done his nut and claimed it was unfair to cut the workers in case it caused a double-dip famine. Probably.

    • 159

      There’s a blog post in there somewhere. Something along the lines of Ed Balls handing out imaginary fish and loaves we can’t afford and then going to the IMF for more, whilst fat mobility scootered pretend lepers follow him around demanding that “Jesus” pays all the bills.

      Jesus is not a member of the Labour party (nor the Conservatives, nor the LibDems, although the latter two occasionally accept some of his commands) since he did not advocate democracy- instead he asked people to obey God’s laws. You get no political parties in a true theocracy.

    You will recall Gordon Brown always compared himself and his party with the parable of the Good Samaritian you know “we will not pass by on the other side” and all that.

    The truth however was that far from being that good samaritian Brown was actually the mugger, stealing the pensions of the many and leaving everyone else and their childrens children with a massive debit as a resuly of his actions.

    The labour party remind me of the kind of individual who commits a crime then hang about for the Police to arrive , at which point they point down the street and shout he went that way officer !!!!

In English Common Law, sovereignty lies first with God, then with us, the people, then the judges (purely as arbiters of the law) and then the government are bottom of the heap. Parliament does not have permission to change Common Law, they can only introduce Status Law, which, we the people, who are sovereign can either ‘consent’ to or not.

We trotted along to church for a Christmas carol service and that was it. All kids went to the lessons apart for a weird Jehovas Witness girl. Religion wasn’t the major fucking deal it is now with people constantly banging on about it.

    The relationship between Church and State has always been somewhat tense, perhaps most seriously during the reign of Henry VIII and his bit of business with the monasteries. There are many contradictions, and many matters on which the moral conscience of the Church(es) informs the Government. However, on the whole, excessive religious fervour in a politician is treated with some suspicion by the electorate (c.f. Alistair Campbell, “We don’t do God” – even though it subsequently turned out that certain people did).

    As for the phrase “Christian Socialist”, one suspects that in many cases, it is, like many an electoral promise, a convenient cloak and little more.

      Can't remember my moniker says:

      I have always felt that the history books have paid insufficient heed to the fact that Henry was always in need of money (cutting down our oak forests for his rapidly expanding navy – and substantially changing our landscape in the process) and could see all this monastic wealth up for grabs. It was a no-brainer (as later with Broon). Issues of divorce and papal infalibility were a side show, IMO.

      Hence my post, accidentally as Anonymous, at 9:08 pm.

      • 280
        Engineer says:

        Certainly true that, partly as a result of the wool trade, the monasteries had become very wealthy by the late middle ages, and with growing wealth came growing power and no little corruption. Henry undoubtedly saw them as a threat to his sovereign right to rule; the Pope’s unwillingness to bend to his will over divorces probably just fuelled his peevishness.

        Quite agree with the parallels between Broon and Henry as pillagers, but it’s hard to see the pension funds as the corrupt wielders of power that some in the Church had become in Henry’s day. There is however, another parallel; the monasteries were the main providers of succour to the poor and needy, and their dissolution caused hardship for the less well-off in society; pillaging of their pension funds will almost certainly cause some hardship for the less well-off in today’s society.

          I particularly like the parallel you tease out here. My thoughts about Henry have developed as I have steadily made my way around all the abbey sites (except 3) in Britain over three decades or so. My interest was not religious but primarily architectural. However, the mostly beautiful settings gave my mind freedom to reflect after numerous business meetings around the country.

          Curiously, I thought also about pensions and felt that the hand of the state, in granting tax relief, was a hostage to fortune. It took the dead hand of Broon to crystallise my fears. Thus, before he was ever in contention, I limited my pension arrangements and stuck to investments that would stay under my immediate control. The logical consequence of this was my removal to pastures new.

          I suppose the root point is that, if my want my savings to be blown away, I only want to be able to blame myself.

      The “Building Schools for the Future” scheme is not as it appears. That title would imply that Labour had been busily building new schools. My sons secondary school received cash from this scheme to install an internal ‘ Frog’ VLE computer system which is complete crap and build a new Human Resources block which was constructed on part of the school playground. No kids have access to this building.Other money from this scheme is being used for a finger-print lunch card system. Can’t see my childrens education benefitting from any of these initiatives.Meanwhile my eldest kid had no textbooks for their A’level Maths course.

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
