DUTCH politician Geert Wilders’ short film, Fitna, universally condemned throughout the Muslim world even BEFORE it was made, has been posted in Dutch and English on LiveLeak. The film warns of the threat Islam poses to the Netherlands, and to Europe as a whole, and urges Europeans to see off Islam just as it did Nazism and Communism. UPDATE: (Sat 29 March) A number of irony-blind Muslim morons decided to prove the point made in Wilders’ movie and threatened the… Read more

THE best pictures, they say, are on radio – but the picture painted in a BBC Radio 4 report this evening of a young boy having hot wax poured on his stomach, and being hit in the abdomen before having “holy water” poured on him, is one I wish I could get out of my head. The child, undergoing an exorcism, was seen being abused by a BBC reporter in one of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s many revivalist and… Read more

TWO Muslim clerics have hit the headlines this week with daft, hate-laden pronouncements. Omar Bakri Mohammad – who left the UK to live in self-imposed exile in Lebanon – hit out at British featherweight champion boxer Amir Khan for wearing flag-embellished shorts and draping himself in the Union Flag; and Indonesian cleric, Abu Bakar Bashir, called tourists visiting Bali “worms, snakes, maggots”, and encouraged his followers to beat up Western visitors. Mohammad, 49, a founder of the banned al-Muhajiroun organisation,… Read more

EARLIER this year I expressed my indignation over the suggestion that the famous Pussy Parlure Spiegeltent, due to be set up shortly as part of this year’s Brighton Festival, might have to shorten its name to placate St Peter’s Church leaders. All hell broke loose in February when the parish council got arsey over plans to locate the delightful, burlesque-styled Pussy Parlour on council-owned grounds adjoining this useless old church, and for a while it looked as if the venue… Read more

FOLLOWING the screening last night of BBC2’s Shroud of Turin – Material Evidence, we have been contacted by Barbara Smoker, former President of the National Secular Society, who wrote: On Easter Saturday, BBC2 showed the spectacular hour-long ‘documentary’ film of special pleading to explain away the 1988 carbon-14 dating of the Turin shroud that established it as a medieval forgery. The rust-coloured splashes which had been identified as paint were now not only described unequivocally as blood, but the actual… Read more

WHEN we awoke this sunny Good Friday, we bet ourselves that the Mad March Hares would be getting more than their fair share of media attention during the day. We weren’t wrong. First to seize a sizeable chunk of the BBC’s coverage was Cardinal Keith O’Brien, head of Scotland’s Catholics, who used his Easter Sunday sermon to criticise the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, which will allow scientists to create part human, part-animal embryos for use in stem cell experiments…. Read more

THE Catholic Church, which has dramatically lost influence in Ireland, hopes to regain the trust of the Irish by sending a representative to visit to every household in the Dublin Archdiocese next year to entice them back to mass and the confessional, according to a report today in RTE News. But the editor of The Irish Catholic, Gary O’Sullivan, said that Church should first confess its own sins. In the current issue of the newspaper, O’Sullivan accuses the Catholic Church… Read more

SIR ARTHUR C Clarke, the pioneering British science fiction author and technological visionary best known for the novel and film 2001: A Space Odyssey, has died at his home in Sri Lanka, aged 90. Clarke, who wrote more than 100 books in a career spanning seven decades, died of heart failure linked to the post-polio syndrome that had kept him in a wheelchair for the past 13 years. According to a report in today’s Guardian, “his forecasts often earned him… Read more

NOW that Christian zealot Stephen “Stay a Virgin, Marry a Virgin” Green no longer has the chance of gaining fame as the man who dragged the BBC into the dock for blasphemy (see earlier post), whatever will the founder of the failed Christian Voice outfit do with his time? Well, according to the ever-watchful Mediawatchwatch, it appears that the ghastly Green thinks he may be more successful “enabling a sexual healing clinic in Wales.” Given that he has the hots… Read more

KURT Westergaard, the 72-year-old cartoonist living under the threat of death from Muslim fanatics, has announced his intention to sell his original bomb-in-a-turban drawing of the Prophet Mohammed. The most famous of the 12 Motoons, published three years ago by Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper he works for, was described at the weekend by Flemming Rose, cultural editor of the Jyllands-Posten, as “a great cultural icon of the 21st century.” And he said it was only fair for Westergaard to make… Read more
