Muselmaniacs in Ireland throw hissy fits becauseÂ Pastor James McConnell said Muslims cannot be trusted.
Paki health workers are upset:
“Our biggest worry is that our Health Minister is a follower of that pastor. He needs to say that there has been a misunderstanding and he does trust Muslims. He should remember that we perform a lot of key functions in the health service and some of us may leave.”
How could the Irish ever survive without them? Who in his right mind would outsource the health service to Mohammedans?
Sounds like Ireland is like a fixer on the needle in its dependence on Mohammedan enrichers:
Anger is growing among members of the Muslim community who perform vital work in the health service here.
The “Muslim community” will milk this for all its worth. And the dhimmies will cave, as they always do. We can see it already, here.
Who allowed the “Muslim community” to perform “vital work” in the health service knowing full well they can’t be trusted?

One of Northern Ireland’s most senior surgeons has warned that Muslim doctors may leave the health service here as the row over Peter Robinson’s comments about Islam deepens.
A Northern Irish evangelical pastor, James McConnell, sparked controversy this month, at a sermon in the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle, when he sharply criticised the Islamic faith. The criticism set off a storm of controversy, both in the media, and amongst the political class. It came as manna for apologists like George Galloway,Â when McConnellÂ described IslamÂ as “heathen and satanic”, as well as a “doctrine spawned in hell”. Little wonder the row, since the tone of the sermon may quite possibly represent a first in Ireland.
McConnell’s sermon, which has led to a criminal investigation over allegations of hate-speech, is problematic in some respects. For example, he cites Enoch Powell’s past assertions, a clear reference to his notorious 1968 “Rivers of blood” speech. However, Powell’s largely concerned raceÂ rather than religion, although its focus on cultural separation, rather than societal integration, is nonetheless contextually valid. The sermon is also unduly tied to the sectarian background of McConnell’s own environment.
The use of certain phrases can also be deemed problematic, for suggesting that Islam is innately evil. A term such as “satanic” does not contribute to a climate where a rational sensible debate can be had on the issue, whilst giving progressive critics stronger cause to use the ‘Islamophobia’ charge. Geoffrey Sales at the Watchtower blogÂ asked:
Just what is incorrect about what the good Pastor has said? Either what Islam claims about itself is true, in which case it is right to expect us all to convert to it to save our immortal souls, and, on what regulars here might call the quiavideruntoculi rule, it is right to use force against apostates and those who will not convert; after all, if it is right that the RCC should use the State to enforce the right religion, it must, by the same rule, be right for Islam to do it; or, of course, as I believe and Pastor James believes, it is wrong, utterly wrong. If it is wrong then it is from the father of lies, Satan, and therefore ‘Satanic’.
It would thus seem that the use of the term ‘satanic’ has overt and very literal religious connotations, as what might be termed a ‘great wrong’, rather than merely being a generalised term of abuse, as some might perceive in the secularised West of today. It thus represents a faith-based understanding of Islam, in which he contrasts, with some justification, the divergences between Judeo-Christianity and Islam.
In other respects, the speech is more subtle and perceptive than the oft repeated media quotes suggest. McConnell dwells on a normatively oppressive intolerance of Islam in many parts of the world, where this faith predominates. He objects to the oppression of Christians and Jews, which he relates to the intensive intolerance expressed in many verses of the Quran. He expressed fear of the intent of Islamic supremacism in the United Kingdom, surely a legitimate concern due to an ongoing sequence of events principally in Great Britain? Unfortunately, the political classes are unwilling to address these issues.
