Hail! Zoltan!

Nick Griffin’s mate Zoltan Fuzessy has made it into the pages of The Sun:

Top Euro Nazi’s hate site run from terraced house … in Gravesend

The fascist twat is vice-president of the ‘Jobbik’ party in Hungary. In an absolutely extraordinary turn of events which has no previous historical parallel, he himself denies any racist intention. “My party is radical but it is patriotic, not nationalist. Millions in Hungary support us. Those who call us Nazi are just Communists.” Zoltan’s party is also known as Jobbik Magyarországért Mozgalom, or ‘The Movement for a Better Hungary’. A better Hungary being one without Gypsies (Roma).

Those Thieving Gypsy Bastards!

Whether or not Hungary is better off without Zoltan is unknown, but the foreign troublemaker has been happily living in England for several years now. In May 2006, he even lodged a complaint with the local council for refusing to allow him to extend the driveway at his home in Windmill Street. By the same token, whether or not patriotic Britishers should support Zoltan’s battle with the local branch of ZOG is a quandary I’ll happily let them decide upon. In the meantime, while the Hungarian remains in England, the Englishman Nick Griffin is coming to Australia in December, and bringing with him all the joys of Christmas.

According to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees:

“a refugee is a person who “owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.”

By this definition Jesus was a refugee. There is no question of this, despite the fact that some Christians are clearly embarrassed by the fact.

What would happen if Jesus had fled to Australia instead of Egypt?

If we judge what Australia would do to Jesus by biblical standards, this is what the bible says:

Deuteronomy 10:17-19 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who is not partial and takes no bribe who executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and who loves the strangers, providing them food and clothing. You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Strangers is one of the biblical word for refugees. Can it be said that we love the stranger in Australia?

To really live the Christian Faith is to have concern for justice for all people, including “the strangers and widows and orphans” the Old Testament called the oppressed and nobodies of the time.

In Matthew 9:13 Jesus told people to go and learn the meaning of the word compassion. Compassion is the modern word for mercy. It means to walk in the shoes of someone, or to feel how a situation feels to them.

Jesus quoted the scripture where God says “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” Keeping the law and making sacrifices in the temple was the “right thing” a good Jew of Jesus’ time did to keep the law. But, says Jesus, God desires mercy or compassion, not rigid keeping of the law. He was alluding to the words of the Old Testament Prophet Hosea who says as God’s word, “For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.”

The Old Testament prophets were damming of those who kept religious observance and yet did not live out justice. Amos 5:21 has God saying, “I hate, I despise your festivals, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.” Jesus was damning of those who kept religious observance hard heartedly and had no compassion. He called them “whitewashed tombs, which on the outside look beautiful, but inside they are full of the bones of the dead and of all kinds of filth.” Matthew 23:27

The law of Moses was to be interpreted through compassion. Compassion, then the law. Let us be compassionate first and then worry about the law, if you like.
