Oh mother!
My appearance on BBC News last night commenting on Elton John's designer baby has sent the online homosexual rag Pink News into a fury.  How dare the BBC call on someone who opposes gay rights to give a comment? 
So cross are the gentle liberal free-speech-loving gays that they have a special page showing how to complain to the BBC.
What seems to have particularly got their Calvin Kleins in a twist is my guarded but critical support for the Ugandan people to pass a law to inhibit the promotion of sodomy in that land.  David Bahati MP has introduced a Bill into Parliament one of whose many provisions is to bring the penalty for aggravated sodomy into line with that for aggravated heterosexual rape, which just happens to be death.  I wonder if that makes it a 'gay equality' measure?
Bahati's Bill also prohibits the promotion of homosexuality, which is a big problem in Uganda (and in Africa generally).  Ugandan parliamentarians are discussing the Bill right now, in the face of intense diplomatic pressure against it, complete with empty threats of withholding financial aid.
Before anyone objects that Jesus Christ abolished the death penalty in His dealings with the woman caught in adultery, I pointed out the opposite HERE.  I don't like the death penalty any more than the next British-university-educated liberal, but every time I see a rainbow I have to remind myself that God instuituted the death penalty for murder 'in perpeptuity' (Genesis 9:6-16) and who am I to disagree?
The subtlety of the Christian Voice position is certainly lost on Pink News, who want homosexual men to be able to travel all over the world to sodomise boys for the local equivalent of a couple of quid.  Just read Joe Orton's diaries if you don't believe me.  Or look up the Spartacus Gay Guide to 160 countries.
Talking of money, millions of dollars, pounds and euros pour in from the West to try to corrupt African society, whether it is to promote sodomy, or lesbianism, or abortion, or divorce-on-demand, or condoms, or feminism or any other secularist con-trick.  It is sheer racist cultural imperialism, and we should be ashamed of it.
Curiously enough, there once was the death penalty in Uganda for an offence involving sodomy.  The nineteenth-century king Mwanga put to death a group of Christian boys who refused to be sodomised by him.  http://www.newvision.co.ug/D/8/459/437768  You won't find 'the gays' upset about that.
Homosexual activists seem strangely obsessed with me.  On 16th December I was invited on to BBC2's Newsnight to discuss Islamic persecution of Christians.  In the event First Great Western failed to get me there.
But here's a funny thing - my invitation onto Newsnight on Thursday night was big news for http://www.pinkpaper.com/, another gay campaigning online rag.  They immediately ran a story.  But here's something even funnier.  After a day, the article, fulminating about the audacity of the BBC inviting a forthright Christian onto Newsnight to discuss the persecution of Christians mysteriously disappeared.  On a search of <"Stephen Green" Newsnight> the Pink Paper was at the top, but clicking on the link drew a blank, literally.  A totally blank page came up.  The reference to the article had disappeared from PinkPaper's Twitter page, and all links were airbrushed from the whole PinkPaper website.  By the 19th, Sunday night, even the Google cached version link 'did not match any documents.'
So what was so newsworthy about my presence on Newsnight and why did the article suddenly prove to be an embarrassment?  Perhaps they realised that their hate campaign was becoming just a bit silly.  Here's the opening of what they wrote, dug up from http://www.ukgaynews.org.uk/latest.htm
"Pink Paper - UK:
"Homophobic Preacher Stephen Green to Appear on Newsnight Tonight.  By Peter Lloyd.   A Christian fundamentalist who openly condemns homosexuals has been invited to appear on BBC2's Newsnight, this evening.  The Christian Voice leader, who once claimed Hurricane Katrina was God's response to the advance of gay rights, has today issued a press release claiming he will be discussing the "persecution of Christians" during tonight's programme.  As it turned out, Stephen Green did not take part - he was "stuck on a train". "
Here is (was) the page: http://news.pinkpaper.com/NewsStory/4505/16/12/2010/homophobic-preacher-stephen-green-to-appear-on-newsnight-tonight.aspx
Best open it in a new tab or window - but I promise you, if Pink Paper haven't taken it down, it will just be blank where the article should be.  Maybe Pink News have a higher embarrassment threshold than their rivals.  We shall see how long their campaign against me lasts!  I wonder if it is a hate crime?

Designer accessory for Elton John

A leading Christian group has dismissed Sir Elton John's baby as a 'designer accessory'.
The baby, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, was born to a surrogate mother in California on Christmas Day.
Celebrities have welcomed the news, with actress Elizabeth Hurley gushing on her Twitter page:
“Massive congratulations to David and Elton on having their beautiful son. Can’t wait for my first cuddle.”
But Stephen Green, National Director of Christian Voice, said today:
"The baby isn't 'theirs' and they are not both 'fathers' to it.  From what we can glean, the baby is Elton John's, although we don't know whether it was conceived naturally or by artificial insemination.
"Either way, fathering a baby is a negation of homosexuality.  Two men, or two women, do not 'have a child'.
"Perhaps Elton John is rueing missed opportunities when he was actually married and could have had a child normally.
"But cash speaks in our immoral society, and this child of a very modern kind of fornication shows Elton John not just having his cake and eating it, but throwing away the cake and then going back for some icing years later.
"The Bible says: 'a man will cleave to his wife and the two will be one flesh'. And out of that loving one-flesh married union, which a pair of gays can never achieve, a baby is born as a blessing of God, born to the mother to be suckled by her and cared for by both mother and father.
"To deprive a child of his mother indicates a high degree of selfishness to go with Elton John's self-delusion and that of David Furnish, his partner-in-perversion.
"Elton John is not just living a lie, but demonstrating it by insisting that David Furnish is a joint father, and he is now imposing that lie on this baby, to be brought up in a dysfunctional home from the start.
"This child is not just a designer baby but a designer accessory for a man who thinks that money can buy everything."

We have sent all MPs and some Peers a link to the video on halal meat together with a call for clear, transparent labelling and have received much support.  Sadly, one email struck a discordant note.

It was from Elizabeth (Liz) Baroness Barker.  It said:  'Remove my address from this mailing list forthwith. I do not wish to have my name associated in any way with you (sic) hate filled campaigns.'

Elizabeth Baroness Barker

In 2007, Lib-Dem peer Baroness Barker was campaigning for birth certificates to be marked "by donor” if the child was conceived with donor eggs or sperm.  The Government rejected her proposal.

So someone who wants people to know if they were conceived by a donor egg or sperm does not want people to know what they are eating.  The idea that Muslims should be able to access clearly-labelled halal meat and that Sikhs, Christians and others should be able to avoid it is 'hate-filled', according to the noble baroness.

Also 'hate-filled', one suspects, is the idea that the expenses of parliamentarians should be transparent.  Last year it emerged that the unmarried baroness, who lives with 'a friend' in a rather expensive pad in Merton, South London, had claimed she was actually living in a rented place somewhere in Sussex.  She could not say where, refusing even to name the nearest town, but relieved the tax-payer of a cool £19,000 a year over a four-year period.  The total came to more than £70,000.  The 49-year-old then flipped her main home address back to London.

Baroness Barker was cleared of all wrong-doing by the Clerk of the Parliaments after (I kid you not) she self-certified to him that the claims were above board!

Rank and file LibDems were less than impressed by the noble Liz:
One said:  'I hope Liz Barker will temporarily resign the LibDem whip whilst an investigation is carried out. If not, the whip should be removed. Nick Clegg has been criticise (sic) the other parties but action within our own party has been woeful.'
Another asked what she was claiming for: 'None of our London MPs claim for second homes, unlike Tory & Labour London MPs.  Sack her.'

All we are asking for is honesty in labelling our food.  What a pity that Baroness Barker finds such a concept so hard to understand.

This is an idea for a letter to send to your MP or to a supermarket on the issue of halal meat:
Addresses for supermarket bosses may be found HERE, and MPs are HERE
Also see the supermarket addresses at the very bottom below!

If sending by post, put your address at the top.
Begin your letter:

Dear ,

I object to the practice of putting meat slaughtered with an Islamic declaration or 'Shahada' onto supermarket shelves with no label stating that it has been ritually-slaughtered.

I am aware that this meat is stunned before slaughter and satisfies current animal welfare regulations, so I do not, in your reply, need to be reassured on that point.

It is the Islamic declaration or 'Shahada' to which I take exception.  I do not wish unknowingly to eat meat which has been dedicated, whether stunned or not, to Allah.

Therefore I ask you to confirm that you will take steps either to remove all fresh and frozen halal meat from supermarket supply chains or to honestly and transparently label it as 'ritually slaughtered' or 'halal', whether stunned or not.

Yours sincerely,

Then sign and print your name
Remember if sending by post to put your address at the top.

E-ALERT 3rd December 2010 - HALAL MEAT / ASIA BIBI updates

Christian Voice E-Alert - 3rd December 2010

3 WEST HAM PRAYER, ALSO TOMORROW (Saturday 4th December)

The Christian Voice HALAL MEAT VIDEO on www.YouTube/christianvoiceuk is being widely watched and approved and circulated.  The ONLINE PETITION calling for honest labelling is gathering signatures.  On the HALAL CHRISTIAN VOICE WEBPAGE are supermarket addresses and we also looked at the THEOLOGICAL POSITION.

Taken together, this is the most authoritative, informative, accessible Christian resource on halal meat on the web.  As 'wise men lay up knowledge' (Prov 10:14), please forward this email to your friends so they can watch the video!  (There is much for people overseas to learn from the video as well.)  All the links are also on http://christianvoiceuk.blogspot.com/ so if you print out and photocopy this email and distribute it in church on Sunday more people can get informed.  Pastors can also ask me to come to their church and speak on this issue.
PRAY: Thank the Lord that the video is being watched and used by God to inform Christians and others. Pray that the meat trade and MPs will understand the issue of the shahada said over halal meat.  Pray that they will receive a massive post-bag and e-post-bag on this issue.

One minute Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian woman condemned to death for allegedly blaspheming Mohammed, was about to be released by President Zardawi, the next minute the President's decision was overturned  by the Pakistan Supreme Court!  The march on Saturday 4th December organised by the British Pakistani Christian Association is firmly going ahead in London tomorrow 4th December.  It starts at the Pakistan High Commission, 35 Lowndes Square, SW1X 9JN at 12 noon, and ends at 10 Downing Street.  Just GOOGLE Asia Bibi or read the BPCA blog HERE.
EMAIL: (if you have not already done so) the Pakistani High Commissioner, His Excellency Wajid Shamsul Hasan on ss2phc@yahoo.co.uk (correct) to respectfully demand that Asia Bibi be released.  Address him as 'Your Excellency.' (Land address above).
PRAY: Thank God that President Zardawi of Pakistan has responded to calls for Asia Bibi to be released (well done all who have already emailed), but pray that the courts in Pakistan will fear God and allow her release.  Pray for a good turnout for the witness (at which I have been greatly honoured with an invitation to speak).

3 WEST HAM PRAYER: Saturday 4th December
Our regular prayer meeting at West Ham against the proposed 'megamosque' - and for our nation - is on the same day and will go ahead (or at least start) at 10.30am on Saturday 4th December.   (Many of us will aim to join the witness for Asia Bibi afterwards.)  With a Planning Enquiry in the New Year, there is much to pray for.  Finish time 12.30pm latest.
West Ham Station is on the Fenchurch Street line to Southend, and on the Hammersmith and City, District and Jubilee underground lines.  Check at www.tfl.gov.uk for 'planned engineering works' to the Tube.
Meet at the site where the Greenway pedestrian path crosses Canning Road.  Aim for Channel Sea House, E15 3ND.
From West Ham Station, turn right out of the station, turn right along Manor Road, under the railway bridge, under the sewer bridge and if on foot turn left into Leywick Street, then left into Abbey Road then left into Canning Road, which is where we shall be.  If by car, turn into Mitre Road which becomes Abbey Road, but you will need to park in Leywick Street and walk the rest or take a chance and park at Channel Sea House.
Although the 'megamosque' cannot now be built in time for the Olympics, we must pray into the planning processes and also begin to look forward to the 2012 Olympics as an evangelistic opportunity.
Do come and stand up for Christ whatever the weather and be challenged and blessed!  (Phil 1:27-29).  The meeting is always a great time of fellowship.  Future date: 1st January 2011.  Even if you have marked New Year's Eve with an all-night prayer vigil, stay awake for this great way to start the New Year proper!
PRAY: That Tablighi Jamaat will be exposed and its plans for a London base will be confused and thwarted.  (2Chron 20:22)

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus (Rev 14:12).
The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect (Psa 33:10
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you (John 15:18)
