Asian UKIP Member Racially Abused on Twitter for Saying Britain is a Christian Country

Quote
Anish Patel, an active UKIP member and practising Hindu took to the social networking platform to defend Britain’s Christian heritage, rounding off with offering to drive anyone who was “offended by Christmas” to the airport.

Anish ChristmasHis comments came just days after the matter of Britain’s Christian heritage was raised at Prime Minister’s Questions by Conservative MP Fiona Bruce, who told Theresa May: “Many Christians are now worried, even fearful about mentioning their faith in public.”

May, the daughter of a vicar, agreed saying: “We’re now into Advent, and we have a very strong tradition in this country of religious tolerance and freedom of speech. Our Christian heritage is something we can all be proud of.”

But Mrs. May’s attitude was not shared by Twitter users, who rounded on Patel.

He was called a “coconut” — a racial epithet hurled at people of immigrant backgrounds who have successfully integrated — and was told to “stick to Gujurati festivals only”, even bring called a “kutta”, a derogatory slang word meaning “dog”.

so I do not get. Were these Pakistanis refused visas or were they given visas after the visas were paid off?

There is a European war on Christianity and Christians underway. The zeal of the Antichristians to anger Christians by deliberately spoiling their Holiday season is not unusual, and it should not be underestimated. They'll regret it soon!  ;)

Christians From Pakistan Refused Visas To Visit UK Church – Because They Are Too Poor

Quote
Two Christians from Pakistan are "shocked and depressed" after being refused visas to visit the United Kingdom because they are "not wealthy enough".

Their visit was to have been paid for by the Church of Scotland.

Quote
"Fewer then 150 Pakistani Christian asylum seekers apply for refugee status in the UK every year. Despite this low risk, Pak-Christians applying to the UK through established churches and Christian groups for ministry work are often declined a UK visa even when organisations and individuals meet all government guidelines. Sadly the same level of scrutiny fails when hate preachers often enter our shores.

Sorry, I have no idea. I just stumbled on the video and thought it was hilarious. I hope others get a laugh out of it.

I did, it made me laugh out loud in a coffee shop.

I did one of these maps for Portuguese for a page some time ago. "Genderless" was a poor way to describe the green countries, though, they have complex relations with grammatical genders but what they have in common is that they never take an article. Also, Geórgia is feminine and, although Holanda is feminine singular, it's often called Países Baixos, which is masculine plural.

Interesting thing I found out making this map is that, besides the UK and the alternative name of Netherlands (which have reino and país, common masculine nouns, in their names), there are no masculine countries in Europe, while in the rest of the world there are many (maybe even more than feminine). I never found any reasonable explanation for that.



For some crazy reason, not only Spanish, but also Modern Greek and Russian, have similar patterns. :o

This one is in Anglish.
Awesome! I liked to write in Anglish some time ago, I had a short text (or should I say a writ?) about the Solar System but I lost it.

I hope the tangential discussion won't preclude a response to this meaningful post from Denise:

and to get 'back' to the actual topic....

I was 'sincere' when i was doing protestant missionary work.....both in the Soviet Union and then in Brazil.  Does it mean I was right and should be held up as a good example....no way.  In fact I -was- that person that all the Orthodox (mainly converts) get all outraged at when they read about churches making trips to Orthodox countries...more educated about history, but no less misguided.

Luckily I was not a loud preachy sort, so repentance for actually misleading someone into Protestantism was not needed...but even looking at similar things...like street preachers and others....makes my tummy turn a bit...
