The Shofar is the ancient trumpet which called the people of God to prayer, repentance, sacrifice and war.


Friday 13th November 2009

The British Museum, that prestigious bastion of archaeology and things historical, is to devote a day promoting perversion to school children.

On 19th November, the Museum, home to such famous artifacts as the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marbles, is hosting a whole day programme to advance next February's 'LGBT History month'.

This absurdity, one of three excuses dreamt up by activists for getting 'gay lessons' into schools (the other two are anti-bullying and anti-homophobia day), happens every February in those establishments where there is a homosexual teacher or head sufficiently lacking in civilised behaviour as to want to inflict his (or her) enthusiasm for deviance on children.

At the moment, such schools are rare, but with the backing of such a prestigious institution, pressure will increase on heads to allow the indoctrination. In addition, if the Equality Bill is enacted unamended next year, it will mandate public authorities to promote homosexuality; and that will include both secondary and primary schools.

Indeed, the LGBT History Month website says smugly: 'The year 2010 will bring us The Equality Act with its greater legislative demands of schools and all public institutions thereby increasing the relevance of LGBT History Month.'

According to the website, the day will begin with a morning session in which local school pupils 'will learn about objects in the Museum with relevant LGBT themes'.

One of these objects will the Museum's marble bust of the Roman emperor Hadrian. The school children will be told he was a famous gay man, but probably not that he was a predatory paedophile who molested his pre-pubescent houseboy Antinous. Hadrian proceeded to initiate the impressionable boy into a full homosexual affair, which only ended with the latter's mysterious death by drowning in his mid-twenties in or around AD123. Hadrian had a statue built to commemorate him and declared him a deity. Homosexual men have been worshipping images of well-favoured youths ever since.

The afternoon session (from 1.30 - 3.30pm) is called 'Exploring Best Practice' (or worst, depending on one's point of view). It is 'for teachers, youth workers and other practitioners' and 'will provide inspiration and practical suggestions as to how your school, educational institution, pupils, students and service users can share in LGBT History Month'. We are told that '12 practioners (sic) of the primary, secondary, and university sectors as well as members of a youth group, a singer who works in schools, and a Connexions worker will be at hand', who 'come from all over the country, both urban and rural'.

Actually, the only two 'rural' contributors are one Kate Sicolo from 'Intercom Trust Cornwall' and Kent County Council Youth Group (oh, not Kent again). Schools represented by militants Elly Barnes and Pauline Weeks are respectively Stoke Newington School and Thomas Tallis School both in London.

Next, a 'Teachers surgery' from 5 - 6pm will offer 'a relaxed and informal session for teachers who want to begin LGBT celebrations in their school to come and discuss with teachers who have already had successful results. The panel will consist of representatives from primary and secondary schools who have tried and tested ideas to help kick start your celebrations for February 2010.'

The number who have 'successful results' can mercifully be counted on the fingers of one hand. When parents find out, and in primary schools they always do, the headteachers wish the ground would open up, even more so when the parents go to the press. In both Leytonstone and Broadstairs, Christian Voice activists have leafleted parents at the school gates, witnessing against a week of 'gay lessons' and a 'gay assembly'. A support group of parents is now active in both places. Clearly, Stoke Newington School and Thomas Tallis School are in great need of someone to take a similar lead.

The day will conclude with a 'Formal pre-launch' from 6.15 - 9pm. 'Highlighting art, history and culture, the evening will be an opportunity for networking, and to hear from prominent speakers including Trevor Phillips, Chair of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, Rt. Hon. Ben Bradshaw MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport, Michael Cashman MEP and Cllr Keith Moffit, Leader of Camden Council.'

Interestingly, Trevor Phillips is on record for his concern that Muslims should be able, even under equalities legislation, to express themselves on the matter of homosexuality.

In The Times, February 26th 2006, he was quoted as saying:

'Non-Muslims must also accept the right of imams to denounce homosexuality in a way that many would find offensive.

'One point of Britishness is that people can say what they like about the way we should live, however absurd, however unpopular it is.

'That's why freedom of expression - including Muslim leaders' right to say they think homosexuality is harmful - is absolutely precious.'

We shall be looking for Phillips to spell that out to 'the gays' and to extend those provisions to Christians, Jews and indeed anyone who cannot see how sodomy benefits a nation.

In addition, Christian Voice activists can apply for tickets to the various events:

READ: Psalm 12:8; Prov 10:28, 17:15, 28:4. 29:27; Micah 2:1-3; Matt 18:5-7; Luke 17:1-2; Romans 1:22-27; 1Cor 6:9-11; Eph 1:7.

WITNESS INSIDE THE EVENT: We are urging Christians to apply for tickets to any of the events. Go to  and to  for ticket information for each of the three day's events. Make your protest felt inside the event, and when you are thrown out, join us in witnessing and leafleting outside!

STREET WITNESS: With leaflets; outside the British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG from 9am to 9pm. Whatever hours you can give to the Lord's work on this day will be valuable time spent. Please let us know when you expect to be there.

PRAY: Pray that our witness will convict someone of sin and the grace of God, that he or she will turn to Jesus Christ and be saved. Pray that many parents will join this campaign.

WRITE: to Mr Trevor Phillips, Equalities and Human Rights Commission, 3 More London Riverside, Tooley Street, LONDON, SE1 2RG.
Tell Mr Phillips you notice he is due to speak at the LGBT History Month Pre-Launch on 19th November. Remind him of what he said in the Times in February 2006. Ask him to tell the activists that people who do not share their enthusiasm for all things gay have the right to 'say what they like about the way we should live' even in a way that many at the meeting 'would find offensive'.

WRITE to the PATRONS AND TRUSTEES (if anyone wishes to have this list in electronic form, please ask.) Ask them why the British Museum is involved in promoting homosexuality to school-children.
