A Church divided .


A church divided or schism , not a pleasant occurrence to contemplate but one that will take place on Tuesday at All Souls church , Langham Place , London . Bishops and clergy , faithful to the true teachings of the Anglican faith , will meet and form a Global Anglican Fellowship within the Anglican Communion .
The sad state of affairs arises because Nu-Labours Arch-bishop of Canterbury , Dr. Rowan Williams , failed to properly address the appointment of an openly gay Bishop in the American Episcopal Church , this failure cause distress to the traditional wing of the Church .
So now the new Fellowship will have it's own bishops , ministers and parishes outside of the jurisdiction of the dio
cesan Bishops ; I was overjoyed when I learned that the Fellowship was to use the Book of Common Prayer as the basis of worship , a return to the time of Cranmer is most welcome by The Doc .
I wish the deliberators well on Tuesday and hope that the Holy Spirit will guide their actions and I ask God's Blessing be upon them . Amen .

Jodrell Bank threatened by small minds .


One scientific achievement in England hailed by the rest of the world is Jodrell Bank radio telescope , the worlds first and still one powerful instrument . But.... there is always a but , an important upgrade to enable its continued use is e-Merlin , a data stream device , but the Scientific and Technology Facilities Council have stopped the project and the necessary funding for it . Professor Keith Mason , STFC chair , and the small minds who sit on the Council should all resign and make way for real scientists who recognise innovation and "blue skies" thinking , while they are at it why not put some lay representatives onto the Council to represent society's
viewpoint . From some of the chairs pronouncements re: e-Merlin he does not seem to know the meaning of ethical science .
I am dammed annoyed about this matter .

What our E.U. masters really think about us .

These are the words of a Romanian MEP Adrian Severin , and they represent what the "elite" really think about us . Read them carefully .


The European dream embodied into EU was born from the fear from immobility of the desperate persons who eluded the tragedy of the war and wanted to gain the right to peace, freedom, food and dignity. These people chose their leaders
and followed them quite confidently. It is true that the generation of the
leaders who got out of the war also placed the interests of the people and peoples ahead of the partisan interests.

The Euro-skepticism, targeting the minimization if not even the annihilation of EU, burst out of the fear from change of the egotists who had got lazy in the decades of peace and who want to preserve the rights won in terms of protection and assistance, subsidies, scholarships, rents and pensions.

They do not believe in leaders and do not follow them – frequently also from the latter’s fault – and even do not look for them any longer. They prefer the populist managers who flatter their ego and appease their worries giving them the illusion that their good would be durable if they withdraw into a national provincialism and defend themselves against “the others.” This is the essence of the Irish refusal of the EU Reform Treaty. This is the essence of a problem which is not exclusively Irish.

The Irish “No” is not the result or the expression of democracy, but of the crisis of the latter. On the one hand, we have the inability of the mass to find or understand the solutions for the settlement of the complicate problems regarding the guarantee of security and social justice in the conditions of globalization. On another hand, we have the divorce between the people and the elites. The Irish referendum is not a victory of democracy, but a last blow to the idea of democracy. (Especially the direct one). Unwillingly and without knowing, the Irish proclaimed with the candor of innocence that the “king” of democracy is naked.

Undeniably, the European process cannot continue through referendum. Such a method does not function when the electorate is unequally informed and educated about the problems in discussion. The Irish reconfirmed the fact that politics has become a profession which supposes the knowledge of the complex compromises, the contextualization and the prioritization and which cannot be appropriated at mass level or practiced by the ordinary citizen of the complex contemporary society. Therefore, the Irish message is irrational and incomprehensible. The arguments expressed by the partisans of the rejection of the Reform Treaty do not have any connection with its objectives and content. Thus, the act of refusal cannot be translated into subsequent political action at European level because it was not learnt from the Irish what a likable treaty should look like.

Thus, the “No” is without consequences. The refusal of a treaty aiming to remove the EU from the blockage through the consolidation of the European institutions and the increase of their capacity to answer the European and global challenges, by the people who took a maximum advantage from the European integration can be explained only through its belief that the better would be the enemy of the good already obtained, and that this good could be preserved without reforms. Thus, it is clear that the lack of knowledge and understanding of the EU by the ordinary man does not conduct to under-appreciation alone, but also to over-appreciation. The
combination between contempt and idealization, between fear and illusion is lethal for EU. Not from the peoples, but from the leaders the remedy can come.

On another hand, if it is true that the European process needs leaders to lead not to be led, the Irish “No” also proved that the project of the united Europe cannot advance through the care of the national leaders. The latter are the first guilty of the fracture between peoples and elites. Then, they are at the origin of the national-populist propaganda which conducted to the separation between the people’s conscience and the European idea, between the European citizens and the political Europe. The European project claims European architects. The European political class cannot be reduced any longer to the conclave of the national leaders. Even before the birth of a European demos – in whose absence a European democracy cannot exist – a European elite able to assume directly the leadership of the process should appear.

Finally, the Irish refusal imposes the conclusion, so long avoided, that the European idea must be released from the captivity of the blockage minorities. A few tens of thousands of Irish cannot thwart the future of hundreds of millions of Europeans. The European Council will have to decide that from now on the European construction will advance without Ireland or with an Ireland which functions subject to special rules, as a lower category member.

The mutual respect that the Irish and the other European citizens owe to themselves imposes this separation as an undesired but inevitable evil. Not any European minority can decide for the others, it can decide only for itself. That who refuses the majority “de facto” refuses itself. Thus, the Irish make room for a smaller but more federal Europe.

Now I call for the arrest of all of the E.U. Commissioners and most of the MEPs for crimes against the citizens of the E.U. and for treasonable activities . Are there any Judges in the Community who will issue arrest warrants against these people and bring them to Justice . The mere fact that they act against E.U.law in not obeying those laws in relation to the Lisbon Treaty clearly makes them criminals .

The week in view .

Well what a week we have had , there has been an example of the worst in politics and the best .

First to get rid of Magna Carta and Habius Corpus , Brown stooped to bribing his own MPs and members of the DUP , this was an act worthy of a Banana Republic , so perhaps it should be El Brown the traitor . Of course the stupid poll respondents agree with 42 days detention and say it will prevent terrorism , don't they realise that detention only follows an incident and cannot prevent it .

David Davies has had the integrity to resign his Parliamentary seat and force a by-election in his constituency , his efforts to highlight the gradual loss of civil liberties in Britain is to be applauded . As usual David Camerons response was pathetically weak and showed that D.D. would have been a far better choice as Leader of the Conservative Party .

A bright ray of sunshine in a gloomy world occurred when the Irish people delivered a resounding NO to the Lisbon Treaty . This highlighted the difference between asking the people and allowing the scum who pose as Parliamentarians in the Parliaments of the countries comprising the E.U. to make the decision . The moron Milliband is still going on with imposing Labours corrupt ideology on the citizens of the U.K. by ratifying the treaty against the will of the people .

Something of a departure from the norm .

In a departure from the usual posts on The Doc Spot I thought that you might like to
contemplate upon these images .

We do move on our lifes journey and
start at the left then move gradually to the right .

I have always believed that maths and formulae were fascinating subjects , but it is their application that is the most interesting .
It does not get more interesting than this !

Food for thought .

I picked this up and thought that it was a most insightful piece , as you can see it was written by Sue MacAllen last year but well worth looking at again .

SALUTE to Denmark ...This is an article from the website by Sue MacAllen July, 2007


Susan MacAllen is a contributing editor for (FamilySecurityMatters.org):


Salute the Danish Flag - it's a Symbol of Western Freedom by Susan MacAllen



In 1978-9 I was living and studying in Denmark. But in 1978 - even in Copenhagen, one didn't see Muslim immigrants.

The Danish population embraced visitors, celebrated the exotic, went out of its way to protect each of its citizens. It was proud of its new brand of socialist liberalism one in development since the conservatives had lost power in 1929 - a system where no worker had to struggle to survive, where one ultimately could count upon the state as in, perhaps, no other western nation at the time.

The rest of Europe saw the Scandinavians as free-thinking, progressive and infinitely generous in their welfare policies. Denmark boasted low crime rates, devotion to the environment, a superior educational system and a history of humanitarianism.

Denmark was also most generous in its immigration policies - it offered the best welcome in Europe to the new immigrant: generous welfare payments from first arrival plus additional perks in transportation, housing and education. It was determined to set a world example for inclusiveness and multiculturalism.

How could it have predicted that one day in 2005 a series of political cartoons in a newspaper would spark violence that would leave dozens dead in the streets -all because its commitment to multiculturalism would come back to bite?

By the 1990's the growing urban Muslim population was obvious - and its unwillingness to integrate into Danish society was obvious.

Years of immigrants had settled into Muslim-exclusive enclaves. As the Muslim leadership became more vocal about what they considered the decadence of Denmark 's liberal way of life, the Danes - once so welcoming - began to feel slighted. Many Danes had begun to see Islam as incompatible with their long-standing values: belief in personal liberty and free speech, in equality for women, in tolerance for other ethnic groups, and a deep pride in Danish heritage and history.

The New York Post in 2002 ran an article by Daniel Pipes and Lars Hedegaard, in which they forecasted accurately that the growing immigrant problem in Denmark would explode. In the article they reported:

• 'Muslim immigrants constitute 5 percent of the population but consume upwards of 40 percent of the welfare spending.'

• 'Muslims are only 4 percent of Denmark's 5.4 million people but make up a majority of the country's convicted rapists, an especially combustible issue given that practically all the female victims are non-Muslim. Similar, if lesser, disproportions are found in other crimes.'

• 'Over time, as Muslim immigrants increase in numbers, they wish less to mix with the indigenous population. A recent survey finds that only 5 percent of young Muslim immigrants would readily marry a Dane.'

• 'Forced marriages - promising a newborn daughter in Denmark to a male cousin in the home country, then compelling her to marry him, sometimes on pain of death - are one problem'

• 'Muslim leaders openly declare their goal of introducing Islamic law once Denmark 's Muslim population grows large enough – a not-that-remote prospect. If present trends persist, one sociologist estimates, every third inhabitant of Denmark in 40 years will be Muslim.'

It is easy to understand why a growing number of Danes would feel that Muslim immigrants show little respect for Danish values and laws.

An example is the phenomenon common to other European countries, Canada and the U.S. Some Muslims in Denmark who opted to leave the Muslim faith have been murdered in the name of Islam, while others hide in fear for their lives. Jews are also threatened and harassed openly by Muslim leaders in Denmark, a country where once Christian citizens worked to smuggle out nearly all of their 7,000 Jews by night to Sweden - before the Nazis could invade. I think of my Danish friend Elsa - who as a teenager had dreaded crossing the street to the bakery every morning under the eyes of occupying Nazi soldiers - and I wonder what she would say today.

In 2001, Denmark elected the most conservative government in some 70 years - one that had some decidedly non-generous ideas about liberal unfettered immigration. Today Denmark has the strictest immigration policies in Europe. ( Its effort to protect itself has been met with accusations of 'racism' by liberal media across Europe - even as other governments struggle to right the social problems wrought by years of too-lax immigration.)

If you wish to become Danish, you must attend three years of language classes. You must pass a test on Denmark 's history, culture, and a Danish language test.

You must live in Denmark for 7 years before applying for citizenship. You must demonstrate an intent to work, and have a job waiting. If you wish to bring a spouse into Denmark, you must both be over 24 years of age, and you won't find it so easy anymore to move your friends and family to Denmark with you.

You will not be allowed to build a mosque in Copenhagen. Although your children have a choice of some 30 Arabic culture and language schools in Denmark, they will be strongly encouraged to assimilate to Danish society in ways that past immigrants weren't.

In 2006, the Danish minister for employment, Claus Hjort Frederiksen, spoke publicly of the burden of Muslim immigrants on the Danish welfare system, and it was horrifying: the government's welfare committee had calculated that if immigration from Third World countries were blocked, 75 percent of the cuts needed to sustain the huge welfare system in coming decades would be unnecessary. In other words, the welfare system as it existed was being exploited by immigrants to the point of eventually bankrupting the government. 'We are simply forced to adopt a new policy on immigration. The calculations of the welfare committee are terrifying and show how unsuccessful the integration of immigrants has been up to now,' he said.

A large thorn in the side of Denmark 's imams is the Minister of Immigration and Integration, Rikke Hvilshoj. She makes no bones about the new policy toward immigration, 'The number of foreigners coming to the country makes a difference,' HvilshĂžj says, 'There is an inverse correlation between how many come here and how well we can receive the foreigners that come.' And on Muslim immigrants needing to demonstrate a willingness to blend in, 'In my view, Denmark should be a country with room for different cultures and religions. Some values, however, are more important than others. We refuse to question democracy, equal rights, and freedom of speech.'

Hvilshoj has paid a price for her show of backbone. Perhaps to test her resolve, the leading radical imam in Denmark, Ahmed Abdel Rahman Abu Laban, demanded that the government pay blood money to the family of a Muslim who was murdered in a suburb of Copenhagen, stating that the family's thirst for revenge could be thwarted for money. When Hvilshoj dismissed his demand, he argued that in Muslim culture the payment of retribution money was common, to which Hvilshoj replied that what is done in a Muslim country is not necessarily what is done in Denmark. The Muslim reply came soon after: her house was torched while she, her husband and children slept. All managed to escape unharmed, but she and her family were moved to a secret location and she and other ministers were assigned bodyguards for the first time - in a country where such murderous violence was once so scarce.

Her government has slid to the right, and her borders have tightened. Many believe that what happens in the next decade will determine whether Denmark survives as a bastion of good living, humane thinking and social responsibility, or whether it becomes a nation at civil war with supporters of Sharia law.

And meanwhile, the US and Canada clamor for stricter immigration policies, and demand an end to state welfare programs that allow many immigrants to live on the public dole. As we in Canada and the US look at the enclaves of Muslims amongst us, and see those who enter our shores too easily, dare live on our taxes, yet refuse to embrace our culture, respect our traditions, participate in our legal system, obey our laws, speak our language, appreciate our history. We would do well to look to Denmark, and say a prayer for her future and for our own..

The hell hole that is modern Britain .

I have difficulty in believing that this once great country could be reduced to a hell hole by 11 years of Labour rule , or should it be miss-rule ; but so it has come to pass .
Two Christian ministers were abused by a West Midlands Police PCSO for handing out literature in Birmingham , not only should that PCSO be sacked and prosecuted but the Chief Constable should resign , for it is obvious that the force he runs is out of control and behaving in an illegal manner .

Prudence Brown has brought the country to the point of ruin , diesel price inflation is at 24% , food price inflation at 14% , tumbling property prices and a wage freeze of 2% on everyone except City fat cats and MPs , this greedy scum want a 25% pay increase funded , of course , by the tax payers .

British industry is again coming under threat from more mad E.U.Directive that seek to give advantage to continental businesses , Churchill saved us from invasion and assimilation by the European Axis , only for Blair and Brown ( the traitor twins ) to hand the country over into E.U. dictatorship . Make no mistake , the Lisbon Treaty is the end for Britain's freedom , we will become the slave labour force for the E.U. Commission , our freedom of speech has already gone ( see first item ) . Was it not Churchill who said " We will fight them on the beaches.... " , we may just have to .
May God defend the Right .
