From the BBC website:

'Somalia's al-Shabab Islamists have denied lifting their ban on some Western aid agencies and say UN reports of famine are "sheer propaganda".
'The UN on Wednesday said that parts of Somalia were suffering a famine after the worst drought in 60 years.
'A spokesman for al-Shabab, which has ties to al-Qaeda and controls much of the country, accused the banned groups of being political.
'But the UN insists famine exists and it will continue its aid efforts.
'Most Western aid agencies quit Somalia in 2009 following al-Shabab's threats, though some say they have managed to continue operating through local partners.'

So far some much standard Islamist fare.  But this is interesting: 

'BBC Somali editor Yusuf Garaad Omar says food aid - as supplied by WFP - is sensitive for al-Shabab as it would like to ensure it goes to regions it controls, rather than government areas.
'He also says that a lot of money can be made from transporting food. Helping women and children - the work Unicef does - is less of an issue, he says.'

The Christian ideal of helping those less fortunate still permeates Western post-Christian thinking.  It is based on Old Testament instructions to be 'open-handed' towards the poor and to have special concern for widows and orphans.  And it is entirely lacking in Islam.


It is fascinating to learn that despite the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World, that paper ranked only 5th in the league table of papers employing private detectives to delve into people's private lives.
The list, and the details of a 2003 inquiry into use of private investigators carried out by the Information Commissioner's Office, have now been handed to officers working on the current phone-hacking probe.
According to THE SUN, 'the ICO's Operation Motorman uncovered 4,000 requests from 305 journalists and 31 publications for a private investigator to obtain confidential personal information.'
The ICO also said that in many cases, the information appeared to have been obtained illegally.

Of course The Sun is pleased that they have come a lowly 14th in the league table.
And which newspaper tops the list, with 952 requests by 58 journalists?  Step forward our dear friends, the Daily Mail.  The paper made over 3 requests every working day to private investigators, 'followed by the Sunday People with 802 requests by 50 journalists, the Daily Mirror with 681 requests by 45 journalists, and the Mail on Sunday with 266 requests by 33 journalists.
'The NotW was fifth with 228 requests by 23 journalists and The Sun 14th, with only four journalists making requests to private investigators. The information requests, set out in the ICO report "What Price Privacy Now", are NOT proof that phone hacking took place. '

I have experience of Associated Newspapers.  Of course there was the dishonest article about me stitched together by an anti-Christian journalist in their Femail section in January.  But back in 2005, the Mail on Sunday reported quite wrongly that certain BBC staff had received death threats and had gone into hiding following the  brief publication of their home contact details on the Christian Voice website.  The story was not true, but the Mail on Sunday then wanted to carry a profile piece on me. 
When I refused, the Mail on Sunday sent a man in a shabby raincoat round the local traders trying to dig up dirt on me.  He used lines like, 'I understand you've done work for Stephen Green and he owes you a lot of money...' Every local trader immediately replied, 'No, Mr Green is one of our best customers.'
Interesting to find that newspapers which many would regard as upholding traditional morality so stoop so low, isn't it?

When will it stop?

Even with the ending of adoption targets, which THIS ARTICLE in the DAILY EXPRESS exposes as based on totally skewed statistics, child protection social workers are still scurrying around hunting for children to rip from loving normal parents in order to satisfy some warped ideology.

It is heartbreaking.  I just pray that some time soon, children 'taken into care' in this way will come of age and speak out to condemn what was done to them, and sue the social workers responsible.

SIGN THE PETITION to Save Africa from Sodomy.

David Cameron has pledged to use foreign aid as a lever for pressuring Africa to accept gay rights and legalise sodomy.

The Prime Minister‘s comments were made on 22 June as he hosted his second Downing Street reception for the perverted axe-grinders who call themselves the 'LGBT community', including one man known for staging pornographic events.


The Prime Minister said that a spin-off benefit‘ of giving foreign aid is that it allows the Government to have a say in what happens in the world‘s poorest countries. He said: 'We have got the ability to speak to African leaders, African governments, about this issue that I know concerns everyone here tonight. And it concerns me.'

During the course of the evening Mr. Cameron spoke with pride of the Government‘s accomplishment on homosexual issues but emphasized that they have a long way still to go in addressing the 'societal problem of homophobia.'

Cameron outlined other areas where he hoped to see improvement and he urged homosexuals in sport to 'come out.'

Guests at the reception included Billie Jean King, Gareth Thomas, Ben Cohen and Kieron Richardson, in addition to a number of homosexual rights campaigners such as Ben Summerskill, the chief executive of Stonewall.

Cameron‘s speech was preceded by a performance from the London Gay Men‘s Chorus.

At the beginning of his talk the Prime Minister tried to be funny, saying, 'It‘s great to have this reception here today. I was just thinking, someone told me that if Sir Ian McKellen was here, I could say I had the Queen and Prince Phillip here for lunch yesterday, Sir Ian [McKellen] today. Who can say they've had two of Britain‘s most prominent queens over in 48 hours?'

READ: Lev. 18:22; 20:13; Deut. 23:17; Ps. 2:10-12, 59:7; Prov. 6:16-18, 14:34, 20:26; Isaiah 5:20-23, 10:1-4; Ezek. 16:49-50; Micah 2:1-2; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27, 13:3; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; 1 Tim. 1:9-10; 1 Pet. 2:14; 2 Peter 2:18-19; Jude 1:7

PRAY: Proverbs 6:16-18 declares that the Lord hates a heart that devises wicked plans and feet that are swift in running to evil. After inviting this collection of perverts and social totalitarians to 10 Downing Street, there can be no question that David Cameron has set his feet to run after evil and his heart to devise wicked plans.

The only thing worse than Mr. Cameron devising wicked plans for this country, however, is that he intends to export his schemes to Africa.  Locked in a colonial timewarp, he thinks the white man knows far better than those he regards as ignorant black savages.

Pray that he is brought to his knees in repentance for his behaviour and that this will be the last of such meetings held at 10 Downing Street.

Pray also that the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in October will send a message to Cameron and other wealthy white liberals that cultural imperialism, holding the poor to ransom until they legalise godless Western depravity, is simply unacceptable in the modern world.

WRITE: to (or e-mail) your MP to protest at the Prime Minister's proposed use of aid to Africa as a vehicle for forcing poor nations to accept wickedness.  Also complain at his attempts at humour, the distasteful comments about HM the Queen in particular.

Given to assorted homosexual activists 22nd June 2011

You‘re all extraordinarily welcome here at Number 10 Downing Street.

I‘m just sorry that because of the uncertainty over the weather, that while we‘re out, we‘re not out in the garden, like we were last year, I‘m afraid.

Ever since the government held drought talks, it hasn‘t stopped raining.

It‘s great to have this reception here today. I was just thinking, someone told me that if Sir Ian McKellen was here, I could say I had the Queen and Prince Phillip here for lunch yesterday, Sir Ian today. Who can say they‘ve had two of Britain‘s most prominent queens over in 48 hours?  (Cue raucous ribald laughter.)

I think we‘ve got a lot to celebrate in Britain when it comes to issues for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Recently, Britain was named the best place for gay equality in Europe. I don‘t think that means we should be complacent.

I think it is a huge testament to the work of the last government and I believe what this government has done as well. It‘s great to see politicians from all parties here. But I just want to say one thing that made me very proud in the House of Commons today, it was a Conservative member of parliament who stood up and congratulated the government on the reception for a section of society that wouldn‘t have happened years ago. Iain Stewart asked that question. I‘m proud he asked that question, I‘m proud I was able to answer it, it shows that all organisations can change.

There‘s a couple of things the government has done that I think have moved this agenda forward, which I want to mention. The first is actually laying the groundwork for having civil partnerships in religious institutions. I think that is a good step forward and I‘m glad that it‘s happening. I also think wiping the slate clean for consensual sexual offences for gay men, that is something we promised as a coalition and we have delivered. Another thing is the huge survey that is being carried out on transgender issues.

I think frankly though we have other areas where we could improve. But there are three I just wanted to mention tonight, that I think we should really focus on, not just as a government but as a country.

The first is the issue of homophobia in sport, and I think it‘s great that tonight, in Number 10, we‘ve got representatives and governing bodies of almost every single sport that I can think of, here signing a charter saying it‘s time to put an end to homophobia and trying to give sports stars who want to come out the confidence to come out.

It‘s a huge honour to have here in Number 10 Downing Street not just Gareth Thomas, not just Ben Cohen, who is doing great campaigning work, but also a great heroine of mine – and in Wimbledon week, amazing to get her here – Billie Jean King.

But frankly there‘s a lot more we need to do. There is an absolutely tiny number of sports personalities who have felt able to come out and we should be doing far more for those who don‘t feel comfortable enough to do that. And that links to the second issue that I want to mention and that is the issue of homophobic bullying in schools, which is still a huge problem in our country.

And frankly, the two issues are interlinked because young people need role models and if we don‘t have enough role models, enough positive role models, then behaviour won‘t change. So I think that while government clearly has a huge role, in making sure we tackle bullying, in making sure headteachers have the powers they need and making sure we address the issue properly, it‘s not just a government problem or a legal problem, it‘s a societal problem. Sport has a massive influence.

The third issue, where I think we are making progress as a government, and I think an area where we have the ability to make progress, is the fact that gay people can be appallingly treated in other parts of the world, particularly in Africa.

Now, we‘ve had to make a lot of difficult decisions as a government and we‘ve had to make lots of tough decisions but I‘m very proud of the fact, in spite of the fact that it‘s not always popular, we have made the difficult, but I believe the right, decision, to maintain a commitment to 0.7 per cent of our national income going in aid to the poorest countries by 2013. It‘s a huge commitment for Britain to make, alone in the world. Everywhere is breaking their promises … we are keeping our promises to the poorest people in the world. And I think this is right morally because as a rich country, we should be helping the poorest people in the world.

But it also has a spin-off benefit of giving us some moral authority in the world to talk to other leaders and governments about our relationship with them and what we expect from them. I‘m very proud of the fact we [put] huge pressure on the leader of Malawi about an issue in that country but I‘m convinced we can do more. We have got the ability to speak to African leaders, African governments, about this issue that I know concerns everyone here tonight. And it concerns me.


It was a line I could not resisit quoting:

'Sex has long troubled evolutionary biologists.'

The poor things don't know why it exists. If you have survived as one of the fittest, surely your genes do not need diluting with anyone else's.  Would it not be better to close oneself, or simply divide like amoeba.

But now, biologists have discovered that by reproducing sexually, worms were better able to resist the onslaught of parasites.  Sexual reproduction enables the species to stay one step ahead of the pests which afflict it.

Researchers took two sets of worms. The first set they genetically engineered only to reproduce asexually. The second set they engineered to reproduce sexually. The second set were better able to stave off the advance of some unpleasant bacteria.

Says the BBC on its website (8th July 2011): 'The researchers say the results are the most convincing evidence to date for a key theory in evolutionary biology.  The theory holds that sex evolved because it lets organisms reshuffle their genes into new combinations to stay a step ahead of parasites.' 

Sex evolved? Surely it is more plausible to conclude that sexual reproduction is yet another example of masterly design from the master designer, Almighty God himself.

That is because evolutionary biologists have yet to answer one very simple question. For every species that reproduces sexually, and there are millions of them, a male and a female of that species had to evolve simultaneously. They had to be in precisely the same place at precisely the same time in the vastness and aeons it took for evolution supposedly to happen.

The odds against that occurring are, to put it politely, colossal.  So if you believe in the myth of evolution, just how did it happen?


So Rugby Union star Ben Cohen is touring the United States to promote his campaign against what he calls 'homophobic bullying'.  For those who don't know, that means insulting people by calling them names associated with homosexuality. 

Depressingly, Cohen has started a charity called 'StandUp'. Apparently, two basketball players were fined in the US for the heinous crime of saying 'faggot'.

'Joakim Noah received a $50,000 (£30,400) penalty for directing the slur at a fan, while Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 (£60,800) for a similar outburst in April,' says the BBC. (Same link as above.)

Mercifully, a Rugby World Cup winner has little currency in the US, so Cohen is reduced to speaking at rallies for American homosexuals. According to the BBC website, 'the married father of twins does have a profile in the American gay community.' Yuk.

What Ben Cohen, or for that matter anyone else on the homophobic bullying bandwagon, has failed to answer is why insults with a homosexual flavour are worse than calling people 'fatty' or 'ginger' or 'moron'. But I know the answer. It's because sodomy is politically-correct and fashionable.

It is tragic that Kenya has been pushed into importing South African genetically-modified maize.

Was US ambassador Michael Ranneberger behind Uhuru Kenyatta's decision to lift import duties on maize imports three weeks ago?  The US brought pressure on Kenya (same link) to pass the inappropriately-named 'Biosafety Law' in 2009 which paved the way for the imports.

South Africa is the only African country allowing GM production.  Zambia carries the leading flag against.  In 2002, the US ambassador to the UN FAO called for Zambia's leaders to be tried for crimes against humanity for rejecting GM maize!  Zambia solved its maize crisis and is now an exporter on non-GM maize.  Kenya bought Zambian maize in 2008.  But it is more expensive than the South African rubbish.

Fact: Monsanto is an US agri-chemical giant with fingers everywhere.  Not for nothing does the Bible tell us of 'wickedness in high places' (Eph 6:12) and that the doers of evil hate the light (John 3:20).  Thank God there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed (Luke 12:2).

So let's reveal some more.  The proponents of GM food say there is no evidence they cause harm.  That is because Monsanto sits on anyone trying to conduct trials and stifles the funding.  More wickedness in high places.

But despite that, the evidence is beginning to accumulate:

Genetically Modified Foods Pose Huge Health Risk reports how nutritionalists are strongly advising against eating the stuff.

A similar article records how animals died after eating Monsanto maize engineered to contain the powerful pesticide known as 'Bt': Doctors Warn: Avoid Genetically Modified Food

The Bt pesticide is NOT killed in the gut of humans, as Monsanto promised. 

And there are shocking problems in India with Bt Cotton.  Animals are dying from eating the stalks and humans are affected as well.

Will GM maize meal be labelled in Kenya?  Otherwise - and in any case - Kenyans will be human guinea pigs in this game of Genetic Roulette.

So what is wrong with genetic modification from a Christian perspective?  Firstly, we read in the book of Genesis that God has caused every organism in His creation to reproduce 'after his kind.'

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:12  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

The Bible is telling us that it was God who wrote the genetic code (or the 'DNA') for every plant, for every animal, for every human being.  When mankind interferes with this God-given genetic code, we do so at our own peril.  The Lord's judgment is likely to come upon those who play God, and those they carelessly inflict their designs upon, in the form of unintended and unforeseen consequences.

As to Monsanto's ambitions, the Bible also tells us that men will be lovers of their own selves, that evil men will want to control every aspect of our lives, even what can be bought and sold, but that God will bring judgment upon them.  'He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh', says Psalm 2:4.  'Your riches are corrupted and your garments are motheaten,' James prophesies against the rich who oppress the poor (Jas 5:2).

Farmers who have successfully grown maize in Kenya and cannot make a living because cheap imports have depressed the price are oppressed as surely as if those in power had come in the night and stolen a third of their crop.

Anti-Christian writer Symon Hill has now completed his silly walk 'repenting' of what he describes as 'his former homophobia' by issuing a challenge to this writer to debate with him in public. The challenge is accepted and I have e-mailed him asking him to name a time and a place.

Mr Hill walked 160 miles over the course of 17 days, amounting to less than ten miles a day, a feat of endurance for which he had to train. He concluded with a speech at the pro-gay Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church on Friday 1st July, before joining other spiritually-challenged individuals taking part in the London Gay Pride march on Saturday 2nd.

Symon Hill is associate director of the four-member anti-Christian company 'Ekklesia'.

Symon Hill said:

“The pilgrimage has been challenging – physically, emotionally and spiritually. There’s been some really difficult and disheartening moments, but also some truly uplifting ones. I have been amazed and humbled by the hospitality and generosity I have received from both friends and strangers.

“Most of all I have been swept away by the number of supportive messages I have received and the backing I have been offered by so many Christians. Many, many Christians want to reflect the radical inclusivity of Christ by promoting equality for gay and bisexual people. It’s vital that we stand up and speak out.”

Regarding attacks on his pilgrimage by Christian Voice, Symon Hill said:

“I have had thought-provoking conversations with a range of people on this walk, including those with different views to my own. It is disappointing that Stephen Green and Christian Voice do not wish to engage in dialogue but only to object to discussion taking place at all. If Stephen Green would like to debate with me in public on these issues, he only has to say so." 

Over to you, Symon Hill!

What Mr Hill described pretentiously as a 'pilgrimage' began at Carr’s Lane Church in central Birmingham on 16th June.  He used it to promote sodomy and what he described as 'loving same-sex relationships'.  There has been no recognition from Symon Hill that these are rare and any criticism from him of the rampant promiscuity, depravity, hedonism, pornography and superficiality on which the homosexual network relies has gone unreported.

All we need to know about Symon Hill's publicity stunt of a stroll is that it was endorsed by the pro-paedophile campaigner Peter Tatchell and twenty-two pro-homosexual organisations, including the Greenbelt festival, the Student Christian Movement, Accepting Evangelicals and something called the 'Bisexual Index'.
