Exposing The ‘Pro-Christian’ BNP…

With Edmund at Harry’s Place reporting that the BNP are still trying to pitch themselves as a ‘pro-Christian’ party, I decided that it’s about time I gave a fresh airing to a hard-hitting bit of artwork I put together quite a while ago, one that nicely illustrates the particular brand of ‘Christianity’ that some [former] BNP members like to peddle…

Poster - BNP Member compares Adolf Hitler to Jesus

Since this poster was first published in 2006, Simon Smith has been expelled from the BNP as a result of his backing an unsuccessful challenge to Nick Griffin’s leadership of the party. He continues to serve as a councillor in Sandwell.

[Personal Note]

In the event that anyone finds this particular image offensive…

…good, you should be offended by Smith’s efforts to draw parallels between Adolf Hitler and Jesus Christ, which is what this poster is intended to illustrate.

If, on the other hand, you merely find the juxtaposition of a crucifixion image and a Nazi flag offensive, then you haven’t understood the poster.

Hmm. Well Jesus did say ‘render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s’, which seems pretty good advice to me.

Perhaps our ‘leading churchmen’ should consider this when wading into debates which are essentially political.. If you know what I mean.

I always suspected that, if he existed, Christ would have been kinda Jewish.

Hitler killed himself though, so probably had more in common with Judas.

What makes me laugh about the BNP’s claim to represent “Christian values” (whatever they are) is that some of the most fervent Christians in Britain are, erm, black. A lot of them are recently arrived immigrants who are packing into churches that whites stopped attending long ago.

And here’s the other thing – I bet the socially conservative values of those black Christian churches is closer to the BNP than that of mainstream Anglicans.

It’s an interesting comparison -an extremist and tending to violence group the BNP try to gain credibility by claiming to be part of a recognised religious group (Christianity),but basically fail, as too many mainstream christians and organisations stand up and say no-way-Hose. And there are no quotes of Jesus that back the BNP case. (New Testament says that ‘we are all equal; using the people categories relevant to that time: slave and free, male and female, jew and gentile etc).

Whereas extremist and tending to violent groups that claim Mohammed as inspiration and their example to copy – are able largely to do so, because no mainstream islamic scholar can deny the things Mohammed did (eg behead hundreds of un-armed Jewish prisoners), or said (commanded a fighting jihad as the best path for all Muslims).

So, how many votes do we think extremist and tending-to-violence Muslim parties will get in the Euro elections?

you’ll find many reputable Islamic voices arguing that democracy is anti-Allah – because obeying his way is the only right way to run things; not the silly of idea asking people what they would like… blasphemy!

So on the whole, tending-to-violence Muslim parties I guess will not participate in democracy, but errr tend-to-violence.

But some do use the language of democracy, and I wonder, in the light of the expenses situation, whether many Muslims would feel obliged to vote for a Sharia Law party, if there was a national party of that name?
