More clarion calls from the good Bishop.
IMMIGRANTS SHOULD UNDERSTAND CHRISTIAN HERITAGE
Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has said immigrants to the UK should have an understanding the country’s Christian heritage.
He is among a group of MPs and peers warning that the population should not be allowed to go beyond 70 million. Lord Carey said immigration angered many people and could lead to violence, and that the system had to focus more on maintaining “values”.
You must understand, gentle reader, everything is cloaked in euphemism because of the harsh PC speech codes of secular progressive Europe. Notice the scare quotes the reporter places on “values”– a way of casting doubt, and even aspersion, on the very notion. But why should immigrants understand our christian heritage, when our own secular progressives are making every effort to extinguish it? Notice Lord Carey says immigrants should “have an understanding” of christian heritage. That is euphemism also. What he is really saying is that we should import our immigrants from other parts of christian Europe, not the Muslim world.
Labour says the system works, but the Tories want caps on incoming workers. All the main parties are sceptical about setting population targets which they believe is unrealistic and counter-productive.
Notice the typical Left/Right sanity divide holds true across the Pond as well. Leftism is a trans-national movement, so a Lefty here and in Europe are pretty much on the same page about everything. That does not hold nearly as true of American conservatism vs European conservatism.
Last year the Office for National Statistics said, if current trends continued, the UK population would rise by 10 million to more than 71.6 million by 2033 – the fastest rise in a century. Two-thirds of that increase would be caused, directly or indirectly, by migration to the UK, it suggested.
“What I think I’m concerned about is not saying we must put a limit on people who are non-Christian populations. That’s not the point. We welcome everybody and that’s always been the generous spirit of the United Kingdom.”
Poor guy. The insincerity oozing through his every pore.
But, he said, immigrants must “understand” the UK’s culture, including parliamentary democracy “which is built upon Christian heritage”, “our commitment to the English language” and an understanding of the country’s history.
There it is. In a secular progressive utopia such as the UK, telling the truth is as agonizing as having your teeth pulled.
The system should not “give preference to any particular group”, he said, but added that points-based immigration could take these cultural aspects into consideration.
And again. In Europe, “cultural aspects” = Islam.
Lord Carey added: “If there’s going to be an implementation of that points system, it must focus much more on values rather than religions…
“If there are competing groups wanting to come in, some groups which may have a greater understanding, an espousal to that, may be given preference under a points system, but that’s not what I’m arguing and certainly not what the cross-party group is arguing.”
Lord Carey told BBC Radio 5 live: “We’ve got to be more outspoken. What I’m calling for is a debate, a debate without any rancour.”
Ask yourself, why would this issue cause rancour? And rancour from whom? Answer: It is rancorous to the muslim community who wants to see Europe islamized, and the secular progressives who are enabling this cultural genocide in the name of diversity and multiculturalism.
He added that immigration was an issue that mattered to “ordinary working-class people” and that it was important to tackle “that kind of resentment which could build and is building up already”.
Working class people– unlike the “educated class”– will yet be the salvation of the West.
Lord Carey said too much population growth in the UK could foster “dangerous social conditions”, with some minority ethnic groups, such as young Muslim men, suffering “disproportionate” unemployment.
Here he is saying the UK doesn’t need the massive muslim slums found in every city in France that have become no-go zones for cops because they are so violent. The French call them “quartiers sensibles” — sensitive neighborhoods. Lord Carey is warning against this.
Labour MP Field and Tory MP Nicholas Soames, the co-chairmen of the migration group, said: “Poll after poll shows the public to be deeply concerned about immigration and its impact on our population.
Meanwhile the “educated class” is obsessed with extinguishing every last vestige of christianity from our society.
Net migration – the number of people who come to live in Britain minus those who leave – fell by more than a third in 2008 but critics say this was driven by eastern Europeans returning home and immigration levels must fall to levels of the early 1990s.
Net migration decreasing, but of eastern Europeans, not Muslims. The rest here.
