Allowing Conscientious Objections is the Hallmark of a
Even in the darkest days of World War 2 Conscientious Objectors were exempt from military service. However, today people are not allowed to have a conscience especially where issues of abortion homosexuality and loyalty to their faith are concerned.
A hallmark of a civilised society is to protect at all times objections by individuals to carrying out actions on the grounds of conscience. One example of this was during the darkest days of World War 2. Conscientious Objectors were exempted from military service. We also have the Nuremburg war trial that confirmed this. Yet this freedom has now gone, this important element of a free and democratic nation has been removed in a twinkling of eye.
Midwife and nurses who through their religious believes get the sack for not wanting to participate in abortions. Other Christians lose their jobs again through their religious beliefs for not agreeing to officiate over same sex partnerships. Others are not allowed to wear symbols of their Christian believes at work. Teachers are reprimanded with the possibility of losing their job because they don’t want to teach what is fundamentally against their Christian faith. Moslems and Christian parents are threatened when they object to school curriculum that attacks their religion. The list is endless and the numbers who are also rendered afraid of exercising their conscience becomes greater everyday. The great lie is we live in a free society. We don’t, we live in a society that permits freedom to only those who agree with the current stand made by the politicians and media.
This is where the so-called Orwellian ‘Nu –Speak comes in. We have for instance a Court of European Rights. It is of course totally the opposite for anyone exercising his or her conscience, what that court does is quickly to stamp on anyone who does not conform to the current social agenda dictated by the politicians. The same also goes from the British judiciary. We once prided ourselves on an independent judiciary protecting those of us who acting on our ethical or religious conscience, from observing recent court cases that has been swept away. The other great illusion fostered by the media is how we live in a “tolerant society”. Tolerant for those who doggedly follow the line of the media giants or the political classes , but ruthlessly intolerant for those whose opinions differ from them.
The future at least in Europe is bleak for those wishing to exercise their conscience. Soon children will report to the schools the views of their parents and grand parents and whether they conform to present social legislation. Foster parents will not be allowed to have a religion. Schoolteachers will be very carefully monitored to ensure they show not even the slightest element of religious belief. In places of work human resource teams will weed out those who express any religious conviction for either therapy or dismissal. Nurses and doctors will certainly not be allowed any form of conscientious objections to procedures demanded of them.

To ensure that the system is enforced against conscientious objectors there will be an enormous pyramid of power. At the top will be the Court of Human Rights then the local judiciary, the lower echelons will consist of the Police and social workers. Local authorities and a myriad of government and non-government officials will provide an efficient administration and co-ordination service. This will be the main priority in terms of their workload. These will be re-enforced by the powerful media of TV, computers and newspapers. Most of this scenario is already in place. It will shortly be completed.
People already are refusing to pay taxes and declaring themselves in Lawful rebellion against the EU (and our own politicians who signed us up to it without our consent), which has no right to any jurisdiction over our courts. The EU is a political organization which influences court judgments, therefore this compromises the independence of our judiciary. All of this is illegal. We must petition the Queen to dissolve parliament and remove the traitors.ReplyDelete
No point in looking to the Queen to dissolve Parliament, she is mainly interested in preserving the ‘Firm’ as she calls the Royal Family. Didn’t she give the Royal assent to all the hideous laws presented to her by Parliament? These would include abortion, civil partnerships, embryonic stem cell research etc etc. She will give the Royal assent to anything put in front of her to preserve the monarchy.Delete
Perhaps this could this be the end for Catholics throughout the world seeing any secular state as their country when they have deviated so far from Christian values?Delete
Our job is to fight for freedom of conscience and to bring back Christian values to our society. As the Pope stated everyone of us must evangelise. Roman Catholics must have no room for pessimism! Our task is clear to spread the Good News and to strengthen our liberty to do so.ReplyDelete
Remember it is a sin to be gloomy , we need as Roman Catholics to offer the good fortune we have to others .
Yes it is our duty to fight for freedom of conscience. An informed and ‘formed’ conscience is a thing to be valued. Ultimately a conscience that has been formed within God’s one and Holy Catholic Church is to be treasured and fought for in this age of decay.Delete
The Queen has sworn an oath to God. She must be put under pressure to keep this oath and to refuse to give her assent to bills which threaten the common good. We, her subjects, must use our right to refuse obedience to such authorities and demand she takes action on our behalf. If the Queen does not stand up against this now it will be too late, because the ultimate aim of these criminals is to destroy monarchies and implement a form of communism.ReplyDelete
The Queen does a good job. She advises her ministers on these matters but can’t been seen to get involved politically.Delete
A Catholic MP who voted in favour of an intrinsic evil ought to refrain from Holy Communion.ReplyDelete
Such an MP ought to be publicly excommunicated.Delete
Catholic MPs who have voted for Gay marriage have effectively excommunicated themselves for homosexual unions acts are explicitly forbidden by the Catholic Church. If they go up and receive communion ‘unworthily, shall be guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord’ as St Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:27. However, a public excommunication could ultimately save their souls and of others for it will make them aware of the gravity of their actions and their situation with God. Until they put the situation right publicly and then go to confession and get the excommunication lifted.Delete
People say 'the Queen cannot be seen to get involved politically'. This is absolute rubbish. How many people know that back in the '70's the armed forces were made to swear a special oath to the Queen because if the Communists had got into power parliament would have been dissolved. The Queen has a duty to stand against these people and the majority of her subjects would support her. By cooperating she is breaking her coronation vows.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry but the Queen simply cannot be seen to come down on one side or the other in a Parliamentary debate, she must be above politics. Even in a debate on the atrocious possibility of gay marriage.Delete
A parliamentary debate which could lead to the Church of England being forced to conduct gay weddings is the perfect opportunity for our monarch to make her voice heard. Although I am no fan of either the Queen or Anglicanism she did swear an oath to defend her church. The Pope has not been silent on the issue of gay marriage because he knows that its proponents are using it as a means of undermining the Catholic Church. The queen is duty bound to uphold our national sovereignty and the Christian identity of the nation, and in doing so she has the support of the British public. So why doesn't she?Delete
