Christians and supporters of traditional British freedom have expressed grave concern over the decision of Norwich City Council to throw a Christian congregation out of a community centre and to ban missionaries from the Norwich Reformed Church from having a stall in the city's historic marketplace.
The Labour-run council launched its campaign of petty persecution against the Rev. Alan Clifford and his flock after a radical Muslim complained about a pamphlet which he had picked up from the church's outreach stall, which he had approached after getting into an argument with two members of the public standing nearby.
The pamphlet, entitled 'Why Not Islam', explains - in reasonable and educated terms, some of the basic, inconvenient truths about Islam
In one section, headed 'Why the West must shun Islam', it points out that:
'Western governments are failing to face reality. The distinction between moderate and militant Islam misses the point that the religion itself is the source of the problem. Indeed, no other religion on earth can claim to match the violence of the Islamic agenda. Seemingly benign Muslim communities will always be breeding grounds from which their more militant members can recruit jihadists.'
Dr. Clifford goes on to contrast the lives and teachings of Jesus Christ and Mohammad, and to urge Christians to strive to convert Muslims.
