More on the CCB
MWW has reported on the Christian Council of Britain and their links with the BNP before. Now Bartholomew reports that the founder of the organisation, the Reverend Robert West, has been suspended from the Conservative Party after addressing a BNP meeting in Huddersfield. A Tory party spokesman commented on the suspension, saying “The BNP is an odious and abhorrent organisation. The councillor has been suspended from the council’s Conservative group and local association pending an investigation.”
Mr West gave a speech in which he denounced inter-racial marriage, and quoted the Bible as the source of this belief. Scarily, this man is on the Lincolnshire Council for Racial Equality. He also said that the CCB has been formed to counter attacks on free speech. If that’s the case why did they use protests against Jerry Springer: The Opera to help get their message across?
The CCB was formed as a counterpoint to the Muslim Council of Britain, which has also claimed to support free speech, when Iqbal Sacranie was questioned by the police after his comments against gay marriage on Radio 4 back in January, and has also campaigned for censorship, with reagrds to to Mo-toons. So the CCB and MCB have at least one thing in common: Hypocrisy.
