Christian leaders are advising people to use their vote to defeat British National Party (BNP) candidates in next week’s elections, the Evangelical Alliance has told Christian Today.Actually, the old canard that the BNP wins in areas of low turnout is largely untrue. According to the Sunday Times voter turnout actually increases when the BNP run a candidate. The BNP provide an alternative to people disillusioned with the Godlike (three in one) main parties.
They are encouraging people to use their vote so that other candidates are elected, and the BNP does not get seats through voter apathy.
“The BNP is trying to present itself as a respectable and non-racist party,” an Evangelical Alliance statement comments. Party leader Nick Griffin said in a speech last November that he wants this country to be “free, Christian and British.”Are other parties just as concerned about the needs of the nation? Well, sorry, but I've always voted Tory, and I don't think that they are. Not under Cameron. Labour have had ten years in power, and in all that time have shown no interest in making the country a better place, and I don't really think I need to discuss the Lib Dems.
But Christian leaders are urging voters not to be fooled by the BNP’s attempts to make itself presentable.
Justin Thacker, Head of Public Theology at the Evangelical Alliance, said: “I don’t see how any Christian could ever support the BNP – its principles are entirely at odds with those of Jesus Christ.
“The BNP is a racist party, which doesn’t seem to realise the contradiction of using St George's day – which celebrates a Christian saint – to peddle its racist propaganda. This demonstrates just what a sham the party’s appeal to Christian values is.
“Other parties are just as concerned about the needs of the nation, and they do not use issues of community cohesion for racist ends.”
Incidentally, I take it from the comments of these reverend gentlemen that they are quite happy to see the country turned into an Islamic state. After all, they regard the BNP as "racist", for opposing this possibility, which is an almost inevitable consequence of the present rates of Islamic immigration and childbirth. Presumably they would be happy for Christians (and all infidels) in this country to be treated like Christians in Iraq, Turkey, or Nigeria?
