A Poem by John Medlin - Sorrowful tramp of boots on sanded streets


“That England that was wont to conquer others
Hath made a shameful conquest of itself.”
(Richard II, 2:1, ll. 65-6)

Sorrowful tramp of boots on sanded streets:
In winter’s grey, sad companies of men
Manhandle Churchill’s coffin with dull beats
Of drum and growling brass. Grown men and children
Sag heads and make their peace, and St Pauls greets
The last of England, mourned in fen and glen:
The state he served, those thin wan faces tell,
Has hollowed like the booming, death-march bell.

Mere thirty years from Pericles’ repose
Refulgent Athens died in Sparta’s fist.
In Ludgate Hill foxish lawyers at their windows
Watched Churchill pass and since have ticked their list
Of state-upturning statutes which in prose
Have sundered epic: mealy “one-world” grist
Which Albion’s beaches ramped with unjust laws
Bringing the millioned umma to these shores.

That stocky soldiery, those weeping folk,
That stark January day, in thirty years
Fast shrivelled to an untamed tribe bespoke
On sink estates of pierced lips and ears,
Their pride as great-strength oxen at the yoke
Neutered by those lawyers’ brats whose fears
Of nation-love have brewed with other spawn
A curdled rainbow in a sullen dawn.

On Sundays Finsbury Park is loud with trade,
Hijab and djellaba command the scene,
A church where once the liturgy was prayed
Disgorges carpets of a Turkish sheen,
The mosques are brimming, that which kept the shade
Tide-like swamps suburbs with the muezzin’s keen;
Soon, time-old villages, deep-valleyed towns,
Will startle as that cold wave slaps and drowns.

The crop-rich fields and gorse-bedazzled moors
Enfold two thousand years of Christ-mens’ cells,
Those chapels, caves, where what’s eternal pours
Through being, fruitful as baptismal shells:
All lost; a rotted people slamming doors
Against its past must pander to the yells
Of ghazis who in church and manor halls
Gouge mihrabs in those age-encrusted walls.

Umma – the worldwide Muslim “community.”
Ghazi – a Muslim warrior particularly one who fights against non-Muslims.
Mihrab – prayer niche showing the direction of Mecca.

The Lord is Risen

Happy Easter 

It is  difficult for many to hang on to the true meaning of Christianity. Today we have news that Tesco's extremely poor understanding of Christianity and natural moral values have surfaced again with their advert "Great offers on beer and cider. Good Friday just got better". What a pathetic and misguided slogan. They wouldn't dare use an Islamic slogan, their ad men would do their homework, but once again as far as Christianity goes - anything goes!

BBC pay rise
The BBC have increased the licence fee to £147 from £145 - the Devil looks after his own! They continue their cover up of Islamic terror, they soon dropped the Egypt Coptic massacres  from their news (they were obviously not secular people getting killed as happens in the West). Did you know that on average a Christian is killed in Egypt every 11 days? And yet the BBC appoints another Muslim as head of Religious broadcasting. Of course Islam is a "peaceful religion" isn't it - well no it's not and never has been. The peace that Muslims talk about is the peace that will cover the world once its all Islamic, however since there has been infighting between Shia and Sunni from it's very beginning, heaven forbid that this Islamic "world peace" will every happen.  You may wish to sign this petition from citizanGo

Some general news:

Ireland and the TV licence.
I'm told by one of our long time members from Ireland,  our Prayer Crusader under the patronage of St Andrew, "Our problems here with RTE bias are at least as big as yours with the BBC. To make matters worse, new legislation is coming out that will mandate the payment of the TV licence - even if one doesn't have a TV - once one has a computer and internet connection in the house."

The continued sexualisation of young Children
Mail on-line Police investigate children as young as SEVEN for sending x-rated pictures on their phones as sexting epidemic sweeps across Britain.

Read more:

Nevertheless Christ arose from the dead - the victory of life over death - peace over war - and love over hate. 

Please keep up your prayers for our latest Prayer Crusade to stop the Islamification of the BBC.

BBC's Islamophilia

The BBC's infiltration of Islam?

There is a field of thought at the BBC that goes along the lines that if they accommodate Muslims, Muslims will convert to their secular inclusive version of religion, and that BBC Islam will be more tolerant. They have successfully subverted British Christianity after all.  So the BBC has appointed its second Muslim head of religious programming in a row. Yet it would seem that Islam and the BBC are completely incompatible. The "Core Values" of the BBC are for example pro-abortion (or choice as they would rather call it! No they're pro-abortion there is no other way of putting it). Muslims are not pro-abortion. The BBC have successfully pushed the homosexual agenda to its limits, to parity with heterosexuality and beyond; - gender change even for kids; and militant feminism is a must at the corporation, while women are very much second class citizens in many Muslim countries. And the number of paedophiles that hang out at the Beeb is legendary; Savile was just the tip of the sickening perverse iceberg of depravity at the Corporation. Perhaps, this last part of the Beeb's vice is more acceptable to Muslims, and it is not so unusual to find it in Rotherham's (and other northern British towns') Muslims' taxi driving fraternity.

Another aspect of the BBC's Islamophilia is seen in the alarming reports that after Songs of Praise has been hived off to private producers it will now include Muslim as well as Christian songs of praise. Channel Four has broadcast the call to Muslim prayer during Ramadan, and now reports are that the BBC will regularly broadcast Muslim Friday prayers. The last head of the BBC's religious broadcasting, Aaqil Ahmed, called BBC religious output too Christian and wanted more diversity, namely Muslim of course. Too Christian! Nine out of ten "Christian" BBC viewers couldn't tell the difference between the Easter Bunny and the Gospel, - having been brainwashed and confused by the Beeb.

There are also strange reports that many feminists support Islam, such as the feminists for Mohammed or whatever. The absolutely stupid Huffington Post even claims in some of its articles that Mohammad was a Feminist! But why are feminists, gender benders, abortionists, and perverts of all descriptions, supporting and trying to converge with Islam? Muslims of course execute the aforesaid depraved types, sometimes by chopping off their heads; sometimes, as in the case of homosexuals, by throwing them off high buildings. It's quite simple: they are all inspired by Satan, whose aim is and will be to the end of time to attack Christians, subvert the Church and especially Christianity in its purest form, Catholicism. So here's a petition we can get behind from Citizen Go. Please consider signing it before Britain becomes a Muslim country.

citizenGo petition on Muslim Head of BBC Religion

Remember that although we use quite strong language and tone to some of our articles, it's simply out of Christian charity, as a warning that if mankind does not amend its ways we are in for an even worse War than WWII; with regard to which, Jacinta Marto, the youngest of the Fatima seers,  said that most of the fighters in this second worse war went to hell.

News and non News

Fake News and Neglected News

That the new president of the United States has found a catch phrase that everyone is now using is at last a bit of good news. We've been bombarded with words like homophobia, "Gay" rights (as if to oppose this is to be anti-happy or something) etc. etc. However, there is also a phenomenon we believe to be "neglected news", for example the millions of pro-life people who take part in or the millions who took part in the  pro-natural family march in France and Italy - only last year 2 million Italians took to the streets of Rome. It was covered on most Italian TV stations; however, unlike the "Gay Pride" parades that take place all over the western world there is no coverage in other countries.

EWTN and the real news

EWTN bravely throughout the long dark years of the Obama administration faithfully had camera crews covering the March for Life events when no one else did. In the lead up to the presidential election they had two weeks of a Priest for Life (EWTN sponsored priests organisation) priest celebrating their live Mass on TV and giving some of the most pro-life sermons I've ever heard. So let's give EWTN some credit! EWTN's World Over Live with Raymond Arroyo's interview with Donald Trump may have just tipped the balance of Catholics away from Clinton and furthered the pro-life cause, saved unborn children - they need a pro-life president. However with all Trump's speeches about Fake news and at least doing something about abortion, he is in fact pro-same-sex marriage. So let's not get too carried away by Trump although Clinton becoming president doesn't bear thinking about.

Putin and the Media

Every wondered why the US and UK's media are trying to put a barrier up between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin? Every wondered why the British media is so anti-Russian? After all it's now a far more Christian country than the UK?
Ever wondered why there is so much about doping in Russian sport and not much about it in other nations' sports? It's quite simple: Putin's Russia is (along with the African countries) the only Christian countries that will not allow pro-homosexual propaganda. They are the only ones who will tell the truth about homosexuality and child abuse!

Freemason Ceremony in Canterbury Cathedral

In another frightening turn of events a Freemason ceremony in Canterbury Cathedral took place last week on the very day that England and Wales was reconsecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Westminster Cathedral. The "Archbishop" of Canterbury is only too ready to accept the £300,000 from Britain's Freemasons to celebrate 300 years since the foundation of the first Masonic lodge.

Probably not the Last Temptation of Francis

  • ·         Catholic hierarchy's silence about modern film and TV is coming home to roost.

  • ·         The Pope meets Scorsese. Many are beginning to question the Pope's judgement on this and many other things.

  • ·         A Catholic points out Catholics cannot be Silent about Scorsese's Silence

  • ·         This film is a disgrace to the memory of the Catholic martyrs of Japan

Probably not the Last Temptation of Francis

After the last temptation thing I thought a Scorsese film would be off limits, but now "Silence". And the star? Neeson, the very man who with Amnesty International (founded by a Catholic) is attempting to destroy the beautiful protection of the unborn in Ireland. The preview indicates there are scenes of extreme violence. It is based of course on a Japanese novel (Catholic), and there has already been a Japanese film. Of course the setting is near Nagasaki. When we bombed that city, most of Catholic Japan died, only the Jesuits in the epicentre were unscathed. I don't want to upset anyone, but our moral duty was to demonstrate this barbarity of this film, Nagasaki and abortion see how that affected the Japanese.

My Japanese neighbour has visited Nagasaki, and she says there are some beautiful Catholic churches. She read the book several years ago. The Japanese are self-destructing; they are having no children - hence they lead in producing robots. When I was a student in London in the late '60's, I saw the Emperor Hirohito in a diplomatic car in Oxford street. However the book, now in English, could be worth checking out.

As for the brutality in Scorsese's Silence, the small bit of the brutality of this film which I have seen is alarming, so I won't be seeing it. As I am a long-term campaigner against torture, and having studied with military psychologists I am well aware that there are security situations but it can be a terrible thing, Jesus himself warned about it and the possibility of being cast body and soul into hell.

These matters are governed by the Official Secrets Act, and while in certain circumstances there may be legality, they may not be mentioned in court. The past situation with communism may have been far more serious than we thought, and when isolation is added, a person can be totally destroyed, even in his soul. Guantanamo bay is actually not the worst case scenario we have been led to believe. I say this, because people need to be aware what Christian martyrdom can in practice come down upon us, and eastern Christians certainly experienced it.

The National Trust join the LGBT bandwagon

“Prejudice and Pride”

Let's all dance to a Gay tune.

The cover photo of the National Trust magazine for Spring 2017 shows a young man wearing a sulky expression and an extremely elaborate fancy dress. This draws our attention to an article inside, “Prejudice and Pride”. The National Trust is (in its own words) “celebrating those who challenged society and convention”; or (in mine) jumping onto the LGBT bandwagon. 

The National Trust is described by Wikipedia as a conservation organisation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and as the largest membership organisation in the United Kingdom. It aims to preserve, protect and make available (for visits by the general public) places of historic interest, both buildings and landscapes. Historically it has focused on country houses, and it also looks after historic urban properties, areas of landscape, and nature reserves. 

The five page “Prejudice and Pride” article, written by novelist Sarah Waters (five of whose six novels are about lesbians) features six NT-owned houses each of which was at one time lived in, or associated with, someone who was (or possibly was) gay, lesbian or bisexual. I must admit that I had heard of only two of them, Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, both early twentieth-century writers, both bisexual, and who had what is described as “a passionate affair” with each other. The sulky-looking young man on the cover was Marquess of Angelsey, and is the only one about whose sexual preferences nothing is definitely known.

The word “celebrates” is a bit of a giveaway. Other articles in this issue concern places (a farm, and a newly-acquired property); a coming TV series about the Trust; activities which the Trust has been involved in; a photo competition and a page for children. These are all enthusiastically promoted, but not “celebrated” as such. We celebrate events (weddings, birthdays, exam successes) rather than people. To celebrate people suggests an attempt at a wide smile inadequately concealing underlying anxiety: “I must convince these people that I like them and approve of them”.    

Or maybe the NT has simply spotted a potential new source of members.

Schools must not call boys - boys anymore or girls girls!

Homosexuality and gender Ideology will lead to the downfall of Western Civilisation

It is clear that Britain will allow anything homosexual or gender-bending. I couldn't believe my eyes today when I open my bank's internet home page and saw two men embracing with the slogan "He said yes" and "everything you need for the big day" it's trying to drum up custom for same-sex marriage loans of course. That a major British bank should see it as a commercial advantage to use same-sex marriage as a positive good and a promotion shows us how far down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah we have come.

Schools must not call boys - boys anymore!
In another bit of lunacy the UK government following a trend that emanates from the USA, have issued a directive that teachers must not call boys - boys or girls - girls anymore just in case they may want to change their sex later in life or even as children! Well the BBC have made many programmes for children promoting gender change, the law follows the media again.

Ever wondered why the West especially the "Gay" saturated Western media is still so anti-Russia, even though it is no longer communist? Could it be something to do with Russian laws banning the promotion of anything homosexual?

The strong links between homosexuality, abortion, cloning, IVF, and child abuse.
Just why do the majority male same-sex married couples want to adopt boys or have them produced by surrogacy? And why do the majority of female same-sex couples want girls?

This Russian documentary explores the reasons why including "Gay" surrogacy, hideous "Gay Parades" with the streets lined with young "normal" families and all. Watch if you dare, its horrible but its fact.
