    "You Can't Escape Political Correctness. Even in Death"

    "You can't escape political correctness. Even in Death"
    Again, ignore the christian element to the story. It is more the principle of this that is insane.

    Religion has no place in crematorium, says council
    By Simon de Bruxelles
    June 09, 2005

    A COUNCIL-RUN crematorium has been criticised by clergymen and funeral directors for removing a wooden cross from its chapel for fear of offending non-Christians.

    Torbay Council in Devon is accused of taking political correctness too far by removing the 5ft-tall gilt cross from the wall of the old chapel in the municipal crematorium.

    It also anounced that the chapel would in future be known as the ceremony hall.

    One chaplain has refused to conduct services in the hall until the wooden cross is returned. Peter Haywood, of the Seamen’s Christian Friends Society, said: “When I saw what had been done I refused to conduct a service until a wooden cross was back in the chapel. They laid the cross down on the floor under the catafalque, where the coffin is placed. I’m afraid I blew my top about this; a lot of people are very upset.”

    Crematorium staff subsequently placed an 18-inch wooden cross on a low side table but churchmen say that it is too little, too late. They are demanding that the large cross is restored to its rightful place, along with a curtain that can be drawn during non-Christian services.

    Alan Faulkner, Torbay Council’s executive member for Environmental Services, defended the decision to remove the cross. He said: “We live in a diverse, multi-faith society and many people have no specific beliefs at all. The facility at Torquay Crematorium is a ceremony hall, it is not a chapel.”

    Mr Faulkner said that crematorium staff had received a number of requests to have the cross removed, even though this posed a danger to staff, who had to climb a ladder to take it down.

    He said: “While I am a Christian, I fully support this decision as I recognise we have a duty as a council to cater for everyone. It is not our intention to offend or upset anyone by removing the cross from the wall.”

    But the Rev Anthony Macey, the vicar of nearby Cockington, said: “That cross has been in the chapel for nearly 50 years. I am very angry about this. Calling the chapel a ceremony hall is ridiculous. It has been the chapel since the crematorium was built.”

    Joanna Hamilton, of the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management, based in Wales, said crematoria were becoming increasingly aware that they must not favour any particular faith. She said: “The word ‘chapel’ favours a particular denomination and many crematoria are keen to promote inter-denominational facilities.”

    Adrian Sanders, the Liberal Democrat MP for Torbay, asked: “Why don’t they just put the cross back and put a pair of curtains up?” Bill West, a funeral director, also condemned the council’s decision to remove the cross. He said: “Nobody from the council or the crematorium stopped to think. It is a chapel. It was dedicated as a Christian chapel by the bishop at the time.”

    Another local funeral director, Kevin Lack, said: “I want the cross back. This has caused untold problems. Consideration to families and their feelings should be paramount.

    “Out of the last 70 funerals I have organised at the crematorium only three or four have been non-religious services. Most people expect to see a cross in place.

    “We are disappointed that the cross was removed without any discussion with the funeral directors who represent the bereaved families.”

    Father Paul Connor, the Roman Catholic priest for Brixham, said: “It would have been wiser and more politic of the council to consult undertakers and the clergy before they did this.

    “If the cross offends people they can cover it up. What about the Christians who are offended by its removal?”

    Death to political correctness! Where is the central authority for this pervasive nonsense, anyway?

    If religion has nothing to do with crematoriums or death rites, then we might as well dump all bodies in a pit, or recycle them to use in processed meat - which I'm sure would appeal to the growing animal-primitve strata of our society.

    I notice SURT posts quite a lot of articles which he introduces with 'good article, but ignore the Christian element'. I wonder if this is the case because no pagan writer of any level of development can be found to defend our culture... I can tell you for sure that is what these Christians want to do.

    Really Sherlock?

    Give it time, Jew-on-a-Stick lover.

    Get with the program. We are trying to revitalize and ressurect a Northern identity that is unassailable in its legitimacy. Christianity, its simplistic polarized idea of good & evil, and its "God of the Gaps" has run its course, and is dying a natural, long overdue death. That foul semitic meme had over a millenia to wipe away the memory of our indigenous spirituality, yet could not succeed. Testimony to Heathenism's innate vigour and resilience. Perhaps if more people started to celebrate and cultivate Heathenism, rather than attempt to undermine it with mealy-mouthed and oily utterances such as your own, Heathenism might be far further along the road to recovery than what it is. But the upward tangent is clear, and its ascendance, as I said above, is only a function of time now.

    But I sense you are baiting me just to entertain yourself as you know I am quick of temper. Is the forum too quiet for you? Why not make some constructive threads instead of behaving like a Half-human for a change.

    I take note of the fact that a moderator calls me a halfhuman for asking a legitimate question about the role of Christianity.

    In case you didn't notice, but people who lose their Christian faith do not pick up heathenism, they just believe in nothing anymore. Heathenism isn't growing at all. The jew on a stick isn't getting replaced by people dressing as berserkers, but if you're hoping for that day, please continue.

    Just the kind of games I referred to. I call you half-human for your frivolous attitude and non-constructive behaviour, yet you instantly attempt to twist this to paint a wronged image of yourself. You called the Hacker a Coward I read for not identifying himself and operating on the sly, yet here you are engaging in a species of precisely the same rotten behaviour, sprouting greasy utterances from a facade of impartiality when you are an acolyte of a Semitic Cult all along.

    You coarsely infer a lack of substance within Heathenism not ask a legitimate question regarding Christianity's role.

    Why is it that Heathenism can survive the Nihilist Razor of Liberalism when Christianity can not? Heathenism requires no leap of faith, like the God of the Gaps does. Heathenism springs from the Blood and the Folk, and has an irreducible value, greater than the individual, whilst Christianity requires suspension of disbelief.
    What difference Christianity or Islam or Judaism (or even a Donkey)? All foreign. All evolved to, and from, a foreign mindset. Perhaps you'd be more at home over at that Catholic Stirpes?

    I prioritize, and am here to serve, my Folk, my Blood, my Heritage. Not a Foreign God.

    And I take note that you are playing games with, twisting the words of, and repeatedly attempting to bait a Moderator, whilst also demonstrating a complete absence of value in what might be deemed core values of this forum.

    Oh cut the crap. You're equating disagreeing with you with hacking the board now when it comes to the moral substance of both these actions. A pretty pathetic trick showcasing your utter lack of debating skills. I point out that the few people making an effort to preserve the European way of life are Christians, and point to your ever returning attempts to minimalize the Christian input in that effort, and without even addressing this even briefly in your reply you become highly offensive and start flaming. Once again this displays a total lack of debating skills. Perhaps you're not really in place in discussionboards SURT, now that I think of it. You obviously can't stand the heat, it may be a good idea to contemplate leaving the kitchen...

    With regards to the core values of this board: when Loki invited me to join he told me the core value here is to debate the biological survival of people on north-European blood. Of course this has been a while ago, long ago before you bothered to join...

    With regards to the survival of heathenism cf that of Christianity: I'd be willing to compare the amount of all European heathens with that of let's say the members of Opus Dei, a small particle of the Catholic Church. I'll bet good money your guys will be far outnumbered. Yes, Christianity is waning, but those still believing practice their faith a lot more intense than what was common a generation ago. Also, I repeat myself here when I point you again to the fact that heathenism isn't really profiting from the waning of Christianity. Those who leave the Church usually believe in nothing anymore. That is the main problem in Europe imo: people without any beliefs.

    Finally, with regards to STIRPES: I used to post there, until I ran into something called mynnyd, perhaps you've heard of it?

    Great Britain is just insane. I might highly dislike other forms of Western society and government, but Great Britain beats them all. Asocial, hypocritical and the preacher of political correctness. In no other European docus and TV spots you see so many Negrids, it just amazing how much they promote mixture and equality - by force.
    They are typical Neoliberals with this extreme economic Liberalism, asocial policy and hyperindividualism and at the same time pseudoreligious, sentimental, moralising with their view on the individual and groups. A nightmare. No wonder so many people from the lower class just going mad and getting destructive, both English and foreigners...
