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?
