    I shall be praying for all persecuted peoples, with a special emphasis on persecuted Christians. I shall also pray for the raising of a Christian flag in pre-Easter time. May God bless all and deliver His people, His church, from persecution. May God's holy truth triumph, and all peoples reap the fruits of that triumph.

    Mr Chapman, first off, I would like to make it clear that I am a professing and confessing Christian. Secondly, feel compelled to tell you that, as a Christian, I am experiencing difficulty deciding what is more offensive to me, as a Christian, your over-abundance of audacity, or you ignorance of basic Christian Doctrine as taught by Christ during His earthly Ministry. Your over-abundance of audacity, which; in my opinion, is amply demonstrated by your presumption that, when you present your flag to Mr Kent, and Mayors O’Keefe and Simms, you have either the support of all Christians or the right to publicly represent the interests of all Christians. Well Sir, I hate to either burst your bubble or to stick a pin in what appears to be a badly over-inflated ego, but this Christian neither needs nor do I want you to publicly represent my interests when it comes to the manner in which I live my Christian Faith. Within the context of this situation, As a Christian, I cannot allow what, in my opinion, is the decidedly unchristian content of the above mentioned rant. I cannot and will not agree with the contents of what, 8in my op8in8ion, i8s your obviously, decidedly unchristian rant entitled Recognizing All Persecution. I base my opinion of your rant on Scripture; specifically, the Beatitudes as taught by Christ, once again during His earthly Ministry, and recorded in Matthew 5:03-13. The last two of the Beatitudes state: `Blessed are you when men shall persecute you and revile you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so persecuted they the Prophets which came before you. Please note the abundance of humility, self-sacrifice, faith, and hope contained in Christ’s teachings known as the Beatitudes and compare and contrast them with, what in my opinion at least, is the self-pitying, childlike, unchristian cry for the world’s attention, which is contained in Mr. Chapman’s submission. Christians are called to emulate what Christ said and did during His earthly Ministry, by calling for the just and right treatment of all people be they male, female, Gay or straight, black, white, red, or yellow-skinned. We are called to love and to serve God by loving and serving others (1 and2 of the Ten Commandments). As a Christians I am not called to seek equality, justice, righteousness or public recognition of any kind for myself, which is what Mr Chapman appears to be seeking. Such self-centred behaviour is not a Christian concept, if you believe Christ’s Beatitudes. I will have my reward for serving God on earth, when, by God’s Grace, I reach Heaven.

    Some say the only True Christian was Jesus Christ, and I love him dearly, even if he is not historically proven. He left home and got an education in Alexandria, went to Cornwall at the tin, came home and worked with his step-dad and stirred up MAJOR SHIT for the mean-spirited authority – Roman, and Jewish alike. I love him. Good guy, big heart, just enough of a saucy streak - bowed to no one on Earth. Perfect? No, if you think otherwise, you miss the point, and have forsaken yourself. PEOPLE, please feel free to fly all manner of flags, and have a celebration of life. Let me have my Jesus-concept, (who has as much to do with Modern Organized Christianity as Aunt Jemima has to do with pancakes) and let others be free to interpet his message. As for LGBT, or whatever, read about the sex organs of the Heyena, (Aristotle, or Stephen Jay Gould) and about their female-dominated society. We are all in this together, we have to get along. I don’t mind Christians, or Gays, (or Lizzys, as Grandmudder called them) but when ANYBODY rubs me the wrong way by preaching hate disguised as piety, or sookiness as holiness, or WORST – blind, stupid, EQUALITY – I tend to laugh and have fun with them. Why not raise flags, or preach sermons on the importance of EQUANIMITY?
