The Thought Police
Move along, Johnny... nothing to think about here

The Thought Cops are alive and well in Europe, and North America as well.

Recently in Sweden, Bjorn Bjorkqvist was convicted and sentenced to two months in prison for writing, "I don't think I am alone in feeling sick when reading about how Swedish girls are raped by immigrant hordes". Two months in jail?!

Also, a man living in the Bunkeflo neighborhood of Malmo sent an e-mail message to public officials saying he believed most Arabs were criminals, and that he opposed subsidies for them to move into his neighborhood. "Bunkeflo," he wrote, "was one of the last few refuges in Malmo where you could go out and not see Arabs loitering all around you."

This man managed to avoid prison, but had to pay a fine of 10 percent of his pre-tax income. Given Sweden's high taxation rate, this represented a figure of close to 20 percent of his actual income. Well isn't that swell?

Also in wonderful Sweden, Pentecostal pastor Ake Green had to fight all the way to the Swedish Supreme Court to keep from going to jail. His crime? Stating in a sermon that homosexuality was "a deep cancerous tumor on all of society". And he was looking at going to prison for this? Green was acquitted, but has caved in and stated that he will never "preach against gays ever again".

A little closer to home, a couple of lesbo Gal-Pals won a judgment against the Knights of Columbus. The Knights were ordered to pay said lesbos 2,000 Canadian dollars (about $4.75 in real money) by the (get this) British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal. Ewwwwww! The "Human Rights TRIBUNAL"!! Don't they sound exceptional? Anyhow, the "crime" committed by the K of C? Refusal to rent the Knights hall to the Dyke-namic Duo. Oh for shame!

I think that things like this must continue. Nothing else will gain people's attention. Our people and our Faith must continue to become corrupt because we are doing nothing to stop it.

Arabs raping Swedish women? What are the Swedish MEN doing to protect their women? I'm not talking about "complaining" or "begging": I'm talking about what are they DOING to stop these attrocities?

Similarly, if the KofC (allegedly Catholic) is forced to pay a fine to a lesbian "couple" for not renting their corporate property to them because of their convictions, well, I guess that's the way the ball bounces.

We get the treatment we permit. Sometimes, standing against injustice requires sacrifices. This is a weakness among the men of our Faith and culture: we (speaking broadly) no longer wish to endure harship and we will compromise our Faith and our very identity so long as there is beer in the fridge, Dominoes pizza delivers, and Monday Night Football and MTV are just a click away on the remote.

This is just like everything else. It has to take a major, major event to wake up people.
