Ham Sandwiches And Sausage Rolls May Be Banned From Office Kitchens For Being ‘Offensive’

I’d bring me a pork product every day if I worked in a place that tried to ban my bacon!

I really don't see a problem with this...

I really don’t see a problem with this…

UK Yahoo: Kitchens that are shared between office workers may soon be banned from storing pork products like sausage rolls over fears that they are “offensive”.

New guidelines proposed by interfaith group CoExist House say that employers should consider worker’s religions before allowing ham sandwiches placed in the fridge alongside other products.

The group also suggests that alcohol should not be served at corporate events in case it upsets members of certain faiths.

are you serious

Andy Dinham, professor of faith and public policy at Goldsmiths, University of London, is writing up the guidelines that will be put forward to employers this week. Defending the controversial report, he told The Sunday Times: “It would be good etiquette to avoid heating up foods that might be prohibited for people of other faiths. The microwaves example is a good one.”

“We also say, ‘Don’t put kosher or halal and other… special foods next to another [food] or, God forbid, on the same plate.” He also said that religious people should be entitled to wear religious clothing and symbols as required.

He added: “We have lost the ability to talk about religious belief because of a century of secular assumptions, and most religious belief is either highly visible and we don’t reognise it, or it’s invisible and we miss it entirely.”


Huffington Post published names and faces of those who oppose Germany’s “migrant” policy

The Huffington Post, the liberal website founded by Arianna Huffington, has a branch in Germany, also called The Huffington Post (HuffPo).

In an article (originally published on August 14, 2015 and updated through August 16), HuffPo (Germany) published the names and photos of people who had commented on social media opposing the ongoing “refugee-migrant” invasion. If you post a comment on their website or Facebook page or any social media, you will be named.

The lead author of the article is HuffPo (Germany)’s chief editor Sebastian Matthes.

The article begins by referring to a prior HuffPo article praising Germans who welcomed the “refugees.” Soon after that article was published, HuffPo was flooded with “hateful” comments by people opposed to Germany’s migrant policy, such as “Europe did not invite the parasites,” “our women are harassed,” “kick them out,” and “Sabrina and her ilk should be sold to the ISIS, where they can enjoy the benefits of Islam wholeheartedly.”

It is also claimed that individuals who were quoted in the article received hate mail. One of them asked HuffPo to delete his name because he feared for his family’s safety.

HuffPo continues (my paraphrase of Google’s translation of the German article):

Now, we can do what we Germans have been doing for too long — we can dismiss the haters as “crazy idiots” and just look the other way. For years, we failed to recognize and confront xenophobia and racism. But no more.

The Internet has become a violent mob who act contrary to the values of our Basic Law. It is time for us to defend democracy and confront the haters by revealing their faces and names. In so doing, we are simply exercising the same freedom of expression that they espouse.

Below is a collage of their faces:

HuffPo Germany outs opponents of refugee-migrants

The rest of the HuffPo article is a long list of the names and comments made by those who oppose Germany’s generous migrant policy.

Pamela Geller points out the gravity of what HuffPo did:

If you post a comment on their site or Facebook or any social media, you will be named. The Huffington Post is a global news organization. This is putting a target on anyone’s head that refuses to go along with the leftist/Islamic war on freedom. These are the lengths the left will go to impose the sharia (Islamic law) on the unwilling.

I have long said the media is the enemy. It’s why I refer to them as the enemedia. They abdicated their role as a news gathering entity and morphed into an activist organization viciously pursuing an anti-freedom agenda.

Germans that are posting anti-refugee posts on Facebook or any other social media site, are being shut down. Facebook, Twitter, etc, and their faces and accounts are being posted. It’s a witch hunt.

[German] Chancellor Merkel is working Mark Zuckerberg to censor anti-invasion FB posts.

“Honor Killing”: Muslim father kills daughter caught shoplifting condoms

The real war on women.

Lareeb Khan/Daily Mail Photo

Lareeb Khan/Daily Mail Photo A Pakistani father in Germany has confessed to strangling his 19-year-old daughter to death. Asadullah Khan, 51, strangled his daughter, Lareeb Khan, after he learnt of her relationship with a boy he didn’t approve of, according to Daily Mail.

Confessing to the murder, a weeping Khan told court in Darmstadt, Germany he believed his daughter had brought ‘dishonour’ to the family by being in a relationship with a boy he did not approve of. He said he wanted Lareeb to have an arranged marriage as he and his wife had done.

The 51-year-old’s wife, Shazia, said her daughter had stayed away from the family home for several nights in a row and had stopped wearing her headscarf. Further, claiming she was unable to stop her husband from killing Lareeb, Shaziz said, “I couldn’t stop him.” “I have rheumatism and didn’t have the strength to fight him off. I wanted to scream, but I couldn’t,” the statement added.

‘Lareeb stayed away from the home for several nights in a row and stopped wearing the headscarf. One day we received a letter from the police saying she had been caught trying to steal condoms. ‘At this point it became clear that there was sexual contact. When I showed the letter to my husband he snapped.’

Khan and his wife Shazia, dressed their daughter in her clothes after killing her and her took her from their apartment to the car in a wheelchair. They then drove to an isolated embankment in Darmstadt; their home town, where they dumped the body.

The couple is on trial for the murder at the State Court in Darmstadt, and although Shazia claims she was an oppressed woman and was therefore unable to save her daughter, her statement contradicts that of her daughter Nida who said: ‘My Mama was not suppressed, she could do what she wanted. She used to hit me with a stick. We were never allowed to talk about her boyfriend. My father used to say my sister should be forcibly married in Pakistan.’

Nida, who was sent to her relatives on the night of the murder, gave evidence against both her parents, adding that her mother was as strict as her father and often hit her and her sister. Nida is now in therapy and does not want to see her parents.

Lareeb’s trial still continues.


Germany is Insane: Nurse evicted from home of 16 years to make way for “refugees”

RT reports, Sept. 26, 2015, that German nurse Bettina Halbey, 51, is in shock after receiving a letter from her landlord and the local municpality of the small town of Nieheim, pop. 6,000, informing her that because building a new shelter for refugees is too expensive, she is being evicted from her flat of 16 years to make way for those refugees.

To add insult on injury, Halbey has helped asylum seekers in the past.

Bettina Halbey's flat

Halbey told the newspaper Die Welt, “I was completely shocked and I can’t even begin to find the words to describe how the city has treated me. I have had to go through a lot of difficulties recently, and then I get this notice. It was like a kick in the teeth.”

Halbey will have until May 2016 to find a new place to live, along with her dog and her cat. The three-story building, where she rented a 90 sq/m flat will now be turned into accommodation for refugees.

Nieheim mayor Rainer Vidal defended the decision to send the nurse packing, saying converting the building would be “the cheapest option. A new residential unit for 30 refugees in Nieheim would cost €30,000 ($33,600). This solution will cost me nothing.”
Rainer VidalOver half the population of Germany live in rented accommodation and the country has laws to defend the rights of tenants.

Ulrich Ropertz, spokesman of the German Tenants’ Federation, told the Telegraph, “Normally, only a private individual can terminate the terms of a contract for personal use. A municipality cannot move into a flat as a legal entity, so the process is legally highly questionable.”

Halbey, who brought up two sons as a single parent, became so incensed by the decision that she wrote about her plight on Facebook. The social media reaction was instant. Over 200,000 people have shared her story, which was also picked up by the German media.

The nurse says that she is not against Germany taking in refugees and she says she got on well with asylum seekers who had earlier become her neighbors, “We take care of each other. Helping people, this is of the utmost importance to me.” [That makes Bettina Halbey a most “useful idiot“. – Ed.]

Mayor Vidal slammed Halbey for going public with her complaints and added that she had been given ample time to find new accommodation: “I find it very regrettable that the tenant has sought to go public with her issues. We have given her a generous period of notice, up until May of next year. We are also willing to help her find a new place to live. There have been several opportunities, but each one has failed because no one wants to offer her a flat because of her dog.”

On Sept. 24, the German government agreed to allocate a further €2 billion ($2.24 billion) for refugee housing, with €500 million ($560 million) to be spent on the construction of new accommodation centers. Local authorities have also implemented their own strategies, such as Hamburg’s plans to turn empty commercial properties into shelters, while empty apartments could serve the same purpose in Berlin.

Germany could receive between 800,000 and one million refugees this year, according to the UN, with an estimated 8,000 people arriving in Europe every day.

Meanwhile, German intelligence says ISIS is recruiting from among the “refugees” and “migrants.”

ISIS: Koran says it’s OK to rape non-Muslims, including children

You’ve all seen the news that, as they wreak destruction across Iraq and Syria, in addition to killing and beheading, Islamic State/ISIS savages are raping women and girls as young as 12.

But did you know the Koran says it’s perfectly okay for Muslims to rape non-Muslims? That’s what Islamic State says.

ISIS sex slaves

Excerpts from Rukmini Callimachi’s “ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape,” The New York Times, Aug. 13, 2015:

The systematic rape of women and girls from the Yazidi religious minority has become deeply enmeshed in the organization and the radical theology of the Islamic State in the year since the group announced it was reviving slavery as an institution. Interviews with 21 women and girls who recently escaped the Islamic State, as well as an examination of the group’s official communications, illuminate how the practice has been enshrined in the group’s core tenets. […]

A total of 5,270 Yazidis were abducted last year, and at least 3,144 are still being held, according to community leaders. To handle them, the Islamic State has developed a detailed bureaucracy of sex slavery, including sales contracts notarized by the ISIS-run Islamic courts. And the practice has become an established recruiting tool to lure men from deeply conservative Muslim societies, where casual sex is taboo and dating is forbidden.

A growing body of internal policy memos and theological discussions has established guidelines for slavery, including a lengthy how-to manual issued by the Islamic State Research and Fatwa Department just last month. Repeatedly, the ISIS leadership has emphasized a narrow and selective reading of the Quran and other religious rulings to not only justify violence, but also to elevate and celebrate each sexual assault as spiritually beneficial, even virtuous.

“Every time that he came to rape me, he would pray,” said F, a 15-year-old girl who was captured on the shoulder of Mount Sinjar one year ago and was sold to an Iraqi fighter in his 20s. Like some others interviewed by The New York Times, she wanted to be identified only by her first initial because of the shame associated with rape.

“He kept telling me this is ibadah,” she said, using a term from Islamic scripture meaning worship.

“He said that raping me is his prayer to God. I said to him, ‘What you’re doing to me is wrong, and it will not bring you closer to God.’ And he said, ‘No, it’s allowed. It’s halal,’ ” said the teenager, who escaped in April with the help of smugglers after being enslaved for nearly nine months.

The Islamic State’s formal introduction of systematic sexual slavery dates to Aug. 3, 2014, when its fighters invaded the villages on the southern flank of Mount Sinjar, a craggy massif of dun-colored rock in northern Iraq.

Its valleys and ravines are home to the Yazidis, a tiny religious minority who represent less than 1.5 percent of Iraq’s estimated population of 34 million. […]

Survivors say that men and women were separated within the first hour of their capture. Adolescent boys were told to lift up their shirts, and if they had armpit hair, they were directed to join their older brothers and fathers. In village after village, the men and older boys were driven or marched to nearby fields, where they were forced to lie down in the dirt and sprayed with automatic fire.

The women, girls and children, however, were hauled off in open-bed trucks.

“The offensive on the mountain was as much a sexual conquest as it was for territorial gain,” said Matthew Barber, a University of Chicago expert on the Yazidi minority. He was in Sinjar when the onslaught began last summer and helped create a foundation that provides psychological support for the escapees, who number more than 2,000, according to community activists. […]

[The women and girls captured by Islamic State] would be held in confinement, some for days, some for months. Then, inevitably, they were loaded into the same fleet of buses again before being sent in smaller groups to Syria or to other locations inside Iraq, where they were bought and sold for sex. […]

Detailed reports by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International reach the same conclusion about the organized nature of the sex trade. […]

For two months, F was held inside the Galaxy hall. Then one day, they came and began removing young women. Those who refused were dragged out by their hair, she said.

In the parking lot the same fleet of Hajj buses was waiting to take them to their next destination, said F. Along with 24 other girls and young women, the 15-year-old was driven to an army base in Iraq. It was there in the parking lot that she heard the word “sabayafor the first time.

“They laughed and jeered at us, saying ‘You are our sabaya.’ I didn’t know what that word meant,” she said. Later on, the local Islamic State leader explained it meant slave.

[…] the Islamic State cites specific verses or stories in the Quran or else in the Sunna, the traditions based on the sayings and deeds of the Prophet Muhammad, to justify their human trafficking, experts say.

Scholars of Islamic theology disagree, however, on the proper interpretation of these verses, and on the divisive question of whether Islam actually sanctions slavery. […]

Cole Bunzel, a scholar of Islamic theology at Princeton University, disagrees, pointing to the numerous references to the phrase “Those your right hand possesses” in the Quran, which for centuries has been interpreted to mean female slaves. He also points to the corpus of Islamic jurisprudence, which continues into the modern era and which he says includes detailed rules for the treatment of slaves.

There is a great deal of scripture that sanctions slavery,” said Mr. Bunzel, the author of a research paper published by the Brookings Institution on the ideology of the Islamic State. “You can argue that it is no longer relevant and has fallen into abeyance. ISIS would argue that these institutions need to be revived, because that is what the Prophet and his companions did.” […]

Sunday Devotional: Jesus spoke of demons and Hell

Jesus cast out demons

Mark 9:38-43, 48

At that time, John said to Jesus,
“Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name,
and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.”
Jesus replied, “Do not prevent him.
There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name
who can at the same time speak ill of me.
For whoever is not against us is for us.
Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink
because you belong to Christ,
amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.

“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,
it would be better for him if a great millstone
were put around his neck
and he were thrown into the sea.
If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off.
It is better for you to enter into life maimed
than with two hands to go into Gehenna,
into the unquenchable fire…
where ‘their worm does not die,
and the fire is not quenched.'”

The above is the Gospel reading at Mass today.

Here are my questions to the U.S. Catholic Church:

  1. How many priests, if any, will actually speak of demons, exorcism, and Hell in their homilies today? I haven’t heard a priest do that in years. Why is that? Jesus described Hell as a reality and spoke three times as much about Hell than he did on Heaven. (See here for all the biblical references to Hell.) Do you not believe the words of our Lord Jesus Christ?
  2. Jesus condemns pedophiles and all who prey on children, so why is Belgian cardinal Godfried Danneels, who shielded priests accused of child sex abuse, a special appointee of Pope Francis to the upcoming and very important Synod on the Family? (Source)

Here’s my question to the Obama administration:

Jesus said “For whoever is not against us is for us.” That describes Syria’s Assad government, but does not describe the so-called Syrian “rebels,” who are anti-Christian radical Islamists, including members of Al Qaeda. So why are you hell-bent on overthrowing Assad, and aiding/training/funding the “rebels”?

Here’s my question to the government and people of Israel:

Jesus said he will reward “Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ.” Why is it that Christians, especially Evangelicals, unfailingly defend Israel and condemn any attack (including even criticism) on Israel and Jews, but I can’t think of even one occasion when Israel has spoken out to condemn persecution and slaughter of Christians. Not even a word of sympathy or empathy. Why is that?

More than 1 of 2 U.S. Muslims prefer sharia law to the Constitution


In May 2015, the Center for Security Policy (CSP) commissioned two successive nationwide polls of Muslims living in the United States.

The results of the polls are nothing less than alarming. In CSP’s words:

“significant minorities embrace supremacist notions that could pose a threat to America’s security and its constitutional form of government.”

The polls found that U.S. Muslims hold beliefs that are very different than the general U.S. population. Here are the findings of the second poll:

  • 51% of Muslims believe that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.” When that question was put to the broader U.S. population in an earlier national poll, the overwhelming majority (82%) said shariah or Islamic law should not displace the U.S. Constitution.
  • Only 39% of the Muslims polled believe Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts. In contrast, 92% of the broader U.S. population think Muslims should be subject to the same courts as other citizens, rather than have their own sharia courts and tribunals.
  • Nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believe that “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.” In contrast, 63% of the broader U.S. population say that “the freedom to engage in expression that offends Muslims or anybody else is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and cannot be restricted.”


  • Nearly one-fifth of Muslims polled said that the use of violence in America is justified in order to make shariah the law of the land in the U.S.A.

Center for Security Policy’s president, Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., observed:

The findings of the Center for Security Policy’s survey of Muslims in America suggests that we have a serious problem.  The Pew Research Center estimates that the number of Muslims in the United States was 2.75 million in 2011, and growing at a rate of 80-90 thousand a year.  If those estimates are accurate, the United States would have approximately 3 million Muslims today.  That would translate into roughly 300,000 Muslims living in the United States who believe that shariah is “The Muslim God Allah’s law that Muslims must follow and impose worldwide by Jihad.”
It is incumbent on the many American Muslims who want neither to live under the brutal repression of shariah nor to impose it on anybody else to work with the rest of us who revere and uphold the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution in protecting our nation against the Islamic supremacists and their jihad.

Below are 13 differences between sharia and the American court system (from The American Catholic):

1. Sharia courts do not generally employ lawyers; plaintiffs and defendants represent themselves.

2. Trials are conducted solely by the judge, and there is no jury system.

3. There is no pre-trial discovery process, no cross-examination of witnesses, and no penalty of perjury (on the assumption that no witness would thus endanger his soul). Unlike common law, judges’ verdicts do not set binding precedents under the principle of stare decisis and unlike civil law, Sharia does not utilize formally codified statutes.

4. Instead of precedents and codes, Sharia relies on medieval jurist’s manuals and collections of non-binding legal opinions or fatwas, issued by religious scholars (ulama and mufti); these can be made binding for a particular case at the discretion of a judge.

5. Sharia courts’ rules of evidence prioritize oral testimony and exclude written, documentary, forensic and circumstantial evidence, on the basis that it could be tampered with or forged.

6. A confession, an oath, or the oral testimony of a witness are the only evidence admissible in a Sharia court; written evidence is only admissible with the attestations of multiple, witnesses deemed reliable by the judge, i.e. notaries.

7. Testimony must be from at least two witnesses, and preferably free Muslim male witnesses, who are not related parties and who are of sound mind and reliable character; testimony to establish the crime of adultery must be from four direct witnesses.

8. Forensic evidence (i.e. fingerprints, ballistics, blood samples, DNA etc.) and other circumstantial evidence is rejected in hudud cases in favor of eyewitnesses, a practice which can cause severe difficulties for women plaintiffs in rape cases.

9. Testimony from women is given ¼ to ½ the weight of men; testimony from non-Muslims may be excluded altogether (if against a Muslim).

10. In lieu of written evidence, oaths are accorded much greater weight and are used as evidence.

11. Plaintiffs lacking other evidence to support their claims may demand that defendants take an oath swearing their innocence, refusal thereof can result in a verdict for the plaintiff.

12. Sharia courts, with their tradition of pro se representation, simple rules of evidence, and absence of appeals courts, prosecutors, cross examination, complex documentary evidence and discovery proceedings, juries and voir dire proceedings, circumstantial evidence, forensics, case law, standardized codes, exclusionary rules, and most of the other infrastructure of civil and common law court systems, have as a result, comparatively informal and streamlined proceedings.

13. This can provide significant increases in speed and efficiency, but at the cost of the safeguards provided in secular legal systems.
