The BNP Is The Peta Of Politics

jesus-bnpTHE BNP is trying to appeal to the Jewish hippy demographic with a poster of Jesus Christ on the cross and a quote from John’s Gospel (John 15:20) in which Jesus says: “If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.”

Of course Jesus was nailed to a cross, and the BNP’s leader Nick Griffin is worried about being attached to an Islamic star. Says he:

“The British National Party is the only political party which genuinely supports Britain’s Christian heritage. It is the only party which will defend our ancient faith and nation from the threat of Islamification.”

Islam has a five-pointed, star, so creating a threat that Griffin will be nailed to one by his two hands, two legs and either his head or some other part of his anatomy.

Of course, state and church should be divorced – it being the Church of England way. So here are the archbishops of Canterbury and York urge the public not to vote for the BNP at the forthcoming European elections.

The statement from the Church of England House of Bishops, Dr Rowan Williams and Dr John Sentamu runs:

“This is not a moment for voting in favour of any political party whose core ideology is about sowing division in our communities and hostility on grounds of race, creed or colour…

“The temptation to stay away or register a protest vote in order to send a negative signal to the parties represented at Westminster will be strong. In our view, however, it would be tragic if the understandable sense of anger and disillusionment with some MPs over recent revelations led voters to shun the ballot box.”

This is the Church telling people – religious and secular – who to and who not to vote for. They go on:

“Those whom we elect to local councils and the European Parliament will represent us and our collective interests for many years to come. It is crucial to elect those who wish to uphold the democratic values and who wish to work for the common good in a spirit of public service.”

Democracy means voting for who you want to vote for.

But while a media debate goes on, the BNP get lots of coverage. The BNP is turning into the Peta of politics, those self-styled spokespeople for dumb animals whose stunts are all about sensation.

Look out for Nick Griffin saying he’d rather carry myrrh than go naked and the BNP using images of people who have no interest in their bigoted cockeyed cause to promote themselves…
