Crucifixion of Bishop Williamson to Begin in Earnest?
Ruth Gledhill of the Times Online has a story that details some private correspondence of Bishop Williamson; how she obtained these letters I do not know.
There was apparently some speculation that the Bishop might be met at Heathrow on his return from Argentina with an arrest warrant. However, I have not read anything this morning that confirms this rumor. In any event, Germany is considering prosecuting this man for the "crime" of Holocaust denial.
This is an outrage. Free speech is dead in the West. And any reader who just shakes his head and figures Williamson has it coming for being a crackpot or racist or any other reason, real or imagined, should look in the mirror and ask himself what he may expect when his view on some other issue of the day is considered a crime and they come for him.
Oppose "gay marriage"? Oppose cloning and killing babies in the name of the god "Science"?
Tick, tock... Calvary beckons.
The day has arrived when questions like those in the following comment, taken from the Gledhill post, must be asked:
"The thing that I find so mindboggling, especially coming from many people who were born and raised in the Western Tradition, like Ms.Gledhill and many of the posters on this forum, is their selective abandonment of this tradition where the holocaust is concerned. I find it incredible, truly scary, that people get imprisoned and persecuted for not agreeing on some subject. I always thought that was a persons right, in the Western World, anyway."
