British couple charged with ‘insulting Islam!’

Oh for Goddess’s sake, this is getting not only ridiculous but also truly despicable. As much as I do not agree with taking biblical motifs as “history,” do I want to see Christians arrested for arguing their faith?  Or for pointing out the truth about Islam? In a supposedly civilized country like Great Britain?!  Absolutely not!

British couple faces ruin for ‘insulting Islam’

The Telegraph UK reports:

Ben and Sharon Vogelenzang are charged with breaching Section 5 of the Public Order Act – causing harassment, alarm or distress. If convicted, they face fines of £2,500 each and a criminal record.

The Muslim woman was staying at the Bounty House Hotel in Liverpool, which is run by the Vogelenzangs, when a conversation arose between the hoteliers and their guest about her faith.

It is understood that among the topics debated was whether Jesus was a minor prophet, as Islam teaches, or whether he was the Son of God, as Christianity teaches.

Among the things Mr Vogelenzang, 53, is alleged to have said is that Mohammad was a warlord. His wife, 54, is said to have stated that Muslim dress is a form of bondage for women.

The conversation, on March 20, was reported by the woman to Merseyside Police. Officers told the couple that they wanted to interview them over the incident.

How absolutely disgusting and appalling. The United Kingdom appears to be utterly lost. Authorities there are consistently coddling Islam–with all its brutality and infidel-hatred–while persecuting the natives for following their own culture.

It is high time for protests in the streets against this hideous injustice of appeasing Islam. I hope that my friend Pat Condell has some choice words on this latest vile action on the part of British authorities.

The bottom line is that Islam insults ME and every other sensible person on this planet. Wake up, folks!


Christian hoteliers charged with insulting Muslim guest
Christian hotel owners face ruin after ‘defending their faith’ in row with a Muslim guest


  1. Who are the aliens behind the British Government
    This country of ours is becoming a laughing stock. Our politicians and Police are out of control. The man in the street is fast running out of patience and unless democracy including freedom of speech is re-established in the UK, then our leaders and their henchmen should expect the worse. Enough is enough.

  2. Horrible
    This is absolutely horrible. The extremist element cannot be fought using gandhian techniques. The extremist element will take over.

    1. Who are the law makers?
      But who makes the laws that create an extremist environment? It is not the fault of the ordinary Muslim in the street that such ridiculous laws are passed. Protest yes! But consider who deserves to be lambasted before taking sides here. There are many “extemists” in Islam as well as every other faith and ideology. To single out any particualar one seems rather unfair.

      Let’s get to the root of this scaremongering by the people behind the scenes pulling the strings and playing the music for “extremists” of every colour to dance to. The unsavoury and unnecessary blaming of decent Muslims everywhere for the crimes of the makers of silly laws is not called for. (No, I am not a Muslim, but I can see the global game playing out here)

  3. Unbelievable
    As much as I don’t agree with many Xians, I think this is horrible. They don’t by chance have the same law concerning atheism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc do they? I somehow doubt that. This is not the Britain I once liked and wanted to visit one day. I don’t want to visit it anymore because it makes my stomach turn.

  4. Islam is sickening!
    Nowadays, the very mention of the word Islam makes me sick!
    I am a rank atheist, believing that ALL religions are nothing more than sick cults established for the purpose of control, however, I am willing to put up with almost any religion other than Islam, a terrorist death cult.
    For any who have studied Islam, this should not be surprising, given its roots.
    The hotel proprietor called Mohammed a warlord. That is too complimentary in nature and is a misnomer. He was nothing more than an epileptic, a mentally deranged individual who gathered around him in the city of Medina the lowest of the thieves. Forming a gang, they staged raids on unarmed trade caravans and remote, unprotected settlements, killing all males and kidnapping the women and children; the women to be raped and kept as sex slaves.
    Mohammed and his followers were nothing less than bandits. His raids, sanitized as “battles” by modern Muslim authorities, as though fought for a just cause, were unprovoked attacks on helpless citizens. Killing and raping his way across Arabia, he vented his uncontrolled lust whenever the opportunity arose.
    Realizing the power of religion, he invented one to keep his men in line; that was the real beginning of Islam. He proclaimed himself a prophet of allah, saying he had a direct line of communication to heaven, thus elevating his position to that of god’s messenger.
    People must read an unadulterated history of this very mentally sick man to understand the depth of his evilness.
    Why various authorities enact stupid laws to protect this vile sect at the expense of the indigenous population of Great Britain is beyond me.
    Muslims are an easily manipulated people, actually, childishly and slavishly accepting without question everything they are taught about their self-styled prophet Mohammed, repeating and repeating line after line of Koranic verses, mimicking the sounds of 7th century Arabic, which few even understand.
    I learned a lot from an ex-Muslim, who, like me, is an atheist, but he keeps it secret, fearing what might happen to him should his apostasy be exposed.
    These zombies enter our countries and live right in our midst, with one goal in mind — to take over the area and turn it into an Arab ghetto, and they are very successful at it.
    They emigrate to our shores, most can’t speak a word of English, they immediately go on welfare, they are underachievers, they refuse to assimilate with the local population as stated in the Koran and, more importantly and ominously, they breed like rabbits, as the Koran is against contraception and abortion. While the average Western family has about 1.8 children per family, the present rate for Muslims in the US is 3.4. In time, most will be home-grown, that is, full-blown US, or UK or European citizens and cannot be deported, at which time they will beat us, not on the battlefield, but at the polls.
    If that should happen, and it is a very distinct possibility, Western culture will come to an end and women everywhere will be in for a very rough time.
    Show a little ankle — 50 lashes; a little hair on the forehead — 50 lashes; if you are raped, it is your fault (for not staying home where you belong) — 100 lashes, possible stoning to death; adultery — stoning to death. There are heaps more punishments, but I think you get the picture.
    I forced myself one day to see for myself (on the Internet) a clip showing the stoning of a man accused of adultery. He was buried up to his neck in a hole in the sand, and the participants were hurling rocks at his head with great determination. To be honest, I didn’t have the guts to sit right through that clip. It is unbelievable and horrifying to think that something like this can happen in the world today (2009), but it really is happening, and frequently.
    Or the gay youths and the young 15-year-old girl hanged at the end of a crane jib in Iran.
    I can’t think of enough epithets to amply describe this vile ideology, for in reality, that is what it is. Islam is synonymous with evil!
    Yet we are not only tolerating this abberation, but we actually welcome its followers to our shores.
    We thought Naziism, Fascism and Communism were bad. Baby, you ain’t seen nothing yet, but you will if Islam continues on its present path!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. organized religion is poison
    No man or clerics should put themselves between other people and the creative force, whatever its nature. The Abrahamic religions are all about greed and mind control. Their history is one of violence and intolerance. They are the BIG LIE. Their clerics are bloodsuckers.

  6. What an interesting situation? In 2007 at the united nations meeting the Islamic representatives asked for blasphemy to be instated in all coutries, the answer was that it would be looked into, within one year several assasinations took place by Islamic people on “others” a teacher who named a doll in her classroom was banned from an Islamic country she was teaching Islamic children out of compassion for humanity. This religion also created a website against Christianity where some of their members said: “Fuck Jesus Christ”, when confronted they said; “oh, its just a manner of speach” and nothing came of it, maybe this English couple should plead; “Oh, its just a manner of speach”!

    I am not a Christian nor a Muslim, but these religions infighting as portrayed in their holy scriptures is really something one should keep out of schools, it teaches the leaders of tomorrow exactly how to make war in all its gruesome details, children growing up in these circumstances need no military training, they receive the best while growing up!

  7. Religion poison everything
    …and islam is the worst insult to humanity of them all.

  8. Religion vs. sprituality
    Over the many years I have studied history and religion I have participated in everything from Catholicism to Paganism. I’ve decided finally to join the spiritual movement outlined by George Carlin and become a Sun/Earth worshipper.(May his videos flourish.) I can see the vitalizing power of the Sun, feel the warmth and life of the Earth. That’s enough “religion” for me. As for the rest, people may beleve what the long as it doesn’t interfere with my life. The most violent of all the world’s religions, past and present, are the Abrahamic religions. Peace will never be accomplished as long as the powermad and greedy can use religion as a cover.

  9. Moslems in GB
    I am not surprised about the laws in GB. I have seen photographs depicting signs at demonstrations by Muslims in England saying: Kill the Christians, Kill the Jews. That is acceptable and legal. No court in GB would do something about it. They are afraid to open their mouth. Are we Americans on they way to the same fate?

  10. Oh, for the love of pie! Judaism, Islam and Christianity all claim descent from Abraham, they all worship the same god, yet they can’t get along with each other! I have no problem insulting Islam. They SHOULD be insulted. Their beliefs are stupid and their sky daddy is imaginary. I don’t care if their feelings are hurt.

  11. Religious Debate
    As a colonist, I am sad to see the headlong plunge into some sort of politically correct insanity that is infecting all western societies. The truth is, from my perspective, that they systematically use our own laws against us. In addition, as a regular reader of the BBC and other European media, what the bloody hell is happening over there?? You have township councils spying on your garbage; ludicris intrustions on the rights of parents and of course the orwellian nightmare made true. WTF???

  12. Insults to Islam
    Our politicians and Police are out of control. Angry Red suggests the politicians and police are out of control, NOT TRUE, they are simply being controled BY the muslims. I see that a large number of British MPs are foreign born Pakistani muslims! wonder who is responsible for that?

  13. Dr. Arthur Frederick Ide

    Islam is insanity and unhistorical
    There are many myths about Mohammad–his alleged marriage to a far older woman when he drove her camels–to when he wed and had sex with 7 year-old Ashira, but what cannot be ignored is there is no Qur’an contemporary with his alleged life. Mohammad, as even the Qur’an states, was illiterate, and was required by the archangel Gabriel to memorize the Qur’an that he passed orally to Remembrancers–who keept repeating the myths plagiarized from the Bible, the Torah, Greek myths (Seven Sleepers of Ephesus, etc) until 200 years after Mohammad allegedly died–and the Remembrancers finally wrote down the fiction they had been taught and preached. Islam is a cruel joke, founded on a minor Bedouin god (Allah) much as the later Hebrews raised their agricultural god Yahweh to being “First God” (not only god–as monotheism comes out of Egyp) after he was forcefully wed to the Canaanite goddess Asherah.

    Islam is the destruction of human rights, thinking, and freedom for women. Islam is an ancient fantasy that glories in bloodshed and lies–much like contemporary Christianity that is bastardized in Nigera, Ghana, and other nations that thrive on keeping people igorant.

  14. Mr.
    It’s interesting to see how no one seems to have a problem and considers it completely normal that it be punishable by law to utter the word hitler, or have anything written on him in germany, and that if a page is made on a social network.. say facebook.. about hitler it gets banned in 2 hours and the account gets locked “because it hurts peoples feelings” while on the other hand when an anti islamic page is created on the same social network and gets reported by more than 105,000 users sice it is ‘hurting their feelings’ its kept because its “freedom of speech”.. hmm just a thought, because this actually happened recently so i was just wondering whether this should be the new definition of hypocricy.

  15. Freedom of speech does not mean that we should insult people who have different beliefs as us. The actions which the English couple took it against the Muslim lady was very disgusting. If the Muslim don’t believe that Jesus was God, let it be. And for the rank atheists, don’t get angry on those who believe in God.
    We have Christian, Jews, atheists, Hindus, Buddah, and all kinds of people commiting all kinds of actions of terrorrism. Let’s just open our local news papper and see.
