Christian persecution... in London

Christians have been expecting active persecution in the West for at least the last 40 years. It may be minor, to date, but it has officially arrived under the guise of "health care":

A Good Friday service at a Polish church was shut down by police for breaching Covid rules as worshippers were threatened with £200 fines.

Officers shut down the religious ceremony in Balham High Street, south London, at around 5pm yesterday, with footage showing an officer tell worshippers that the gathering is 'unlawful' and that they have to go home.

Meanwhile, just under five miles away at a crowded Parliament Square, thousands of protestors gathered at a Kill the Bill rally chanting, banging drums and waving placards before scuffles broke out with police.

The parish Parafia Chrystusa Krola — Christ the Believer — has issued a statement saying it believes police 'brutally exceeded their powers'.

It urged those present at the ceremony to file a formal complaint to the Metropolitan Police, adding: 'We asked the police authorities to explain the incident and we are waiting for their response.'

Bishop of Buckingham Rt Rev Alan Wilson also questioned breaking up the service, telling Channel 4 News that the Government needs to clarify its coronavirus guidelines for churches.

And people on social media have slammed the police's 'disgraceful' handling of the situation, with some describing it as 'deeply offensive'.

Official coronavirus guidance states communal worship or prayer can be attended by as many people as a place of worship can accommodate, as long as they are socially distanced. Masks should be worn, according to the government rules. 

The Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark said the intervention had occurred during the solemn liturgy, which would have taken just 30 minutes to complete.

It is increasingly likely that your faith will be tested during your lifetime. Be ready for the test by deciding if you will follow Jesus Christ or if you will follow Caesar when you are presented with the choice. It will be interesting to see if the Queen, who is the titular head of the Church of England, is willing to accept this overt persecution of Christians  - even if Roman Catholic Christians - in her name.

UPDATE: Apparently the persecution is even worse in Ireland.

It's now a crime to go to Mass in Ireland, and an Irish priest has recently been fined for celebrating Mass, even though such a law is not in our Constitution or on any legal books. As for the Irish Church: It's been hijacked, and the fake senior clergy, most of them closet gays, are 'in bed' with the anti-Christian Woke State.

In the 1990s, a federal judge seized a church and sold it off, because the church paid the pastors directly and didn't withhold as employees. White church obviously, no official or judge would ever get in the way of the 1,000 scams at black churches.

I was a new and ignorant lawyer back then and I was shocked, now I would assume someone with juice was mad at them or wanted the building.

But back then I was double shocked no one killed the judge or her family.

Now I wonder if the US would be better now if some hothead had taken care of things back then. Too late now.

Minor comment:
In Polish "Parafia Chrystusa Króla" means the the Parish of Christ the King.
The Polish liety and priestly movements to recognise Jesus Christ as the real, personal king od the Poland are actively fought against by converged bishops since 1920s.
There is consensus between active Polish mistics, that loses in the WWII as well as 2 generations under communism are just the begining of punishemts for defying that God's order.

Faith can be given to the faithless and the strength to endure all the venom this fallen world can spit out even unto death and worse.. Ask the Lod that he may prepare you for that day and build within you a resolve to endure such that the mountains of the Earth shall fade to dust before you yield false testimony or deny our Lord Savior, he who came to save us in the Flesh not to spare us from the Flesh and its suffering but to give us eternal Life in Him that we may abide in his Grace on the Day, that day..

The mask is beginning to come off. People are still in furious denial because the mind repels in fear at the realisation of the existence, width, breath and depth of such evil, and the implications of it. That's why people choose to claim they don't believe in God. It's emotional denial and rejection, in fear and selfishness, not rational non-belief. They want to pretend there are no wages for sin and that there is no evil which is personal yet not human but supernatural. It's so false yet... so re-assuring and calming, especially for the wicked, who don't want to think about the wages of their sins.

Even Christians are refusing to admit and acknowledge what is unfolding before our very eyes. They cling to any tiny discrepancy or departure from scriptural prophecy to claim 'No, it's not that! This is why, see? This little detail doesn't match up exactly so it's clearly not that time yet! Go away, anti-vaxxer conspiracy theory nut!'.

But yes. It is, it is that time already. It's just that the Luciferase tattoo comes later, after the not-vaccine injection. But it will only be given to those who already took the not-vaccine or who took the not-test swabs up the nose or up the rump. Because that was the actual mark. The Luciferase tattoo is just the proof and confirmation of the mark. Those who have not taken, nor will take the not-vaccines won't get the tattoo proof either.

You can't have one without the other. Therefore, they are one and the same. Just taken and given in two parts, in two stages.

Francis George spent his time in Chicago apologizing to and accommodating queers.

if his successors die in prison and as martyrs, he was essential to the degeneration of society which brought that about.

Two weeks later, George apologized: "This has evidently wounded a good number of people. I have family members myself who are gay and lesbian, so it's part of our lives. So I'm sorry for the hurt." He said he was "speaking out of fear that I have for the church's liberty and I was reaching for an analogy which was very inappropriate ...Sometimes fear is a bad motivation."[20] LGBT rights advocates accepted his apology.

hey, at least not-a-Boomer George died before they ate him.

It is not insignificant that the targeted church here is one of congregants from a foreign land that take the Christian faith seriously.

Shame on you, Britons. As others upthread have stated, you need to follow the example of the Poles.

It will be interesting to see if the Queen, who is the titular head of the Church of England, is willing to accept this overt persecution of Christians - even if Roman Catholic Christians - in her name.

Given that this queen has done NOTHING over the course of her nearly 70-year reign to reverse the course of the slow subversion of her nation by foreign infidels, my answer to your rhetorical question is a resounding "NO, OF COURSE NOT." Elizabeth is no more of a Christian than is George Soros or Osama bin Laden.

@24 Ominous Cowherd:

Persecution is growing Christ's church in China.

The good news here is that churchianity cannot take root in countries like China that actively persecute the faithful (the "state-approved" churches fool no one who is a serious and committed believer). It's only in countries that have either made Christianity (or a bastardization of it) the state religion, or that have historically been hands-off that the faith has grown weak and complacent enough to tolerate a simulacrum of it that ultimately leads to persecution of true believers.

Blogger Canadian Warlord April 04, 2021 4:20 PM  

Elizardbeast I - famous for the start of the English Empire. Second place in the reigning time. John Dee (007), Sir Francis Bacon. War against Catholicism.
Victoria I - height of the empire. Sun never sets - opium wars, colonial soldiers bearing some burden, the realization by nobility that they can make major money on the illegal drug trade as long as it stays illegal.
Elizardbeast II - Slow final death of the empire. Close the outposts, let the hordes in, surrender all that can be surrendered including _the children_ and the entire futures of her subjects. Gets flown around by serial killers.

I'd say Empirical England's bookend Elizabethan rule, with Victoria at the height, show that the nobility class had full control during the reigns of women. These are three monarchs who never said "no" when presented risky plans by shifty bastards. Sometimes it worked to the betterment of the ruling class, and sometimes it destroyed England in the process.

The Canadian Polish church is a great example of what all Westerners need to do in all aspects of society. It is also a great example of why Western churches need to be shuttered.
