“Our application was dismissed because we planned to inform the public debate and help make a fairer society. The decision represents a direct threat to the democratic right to freedom of speech and we intend to continue the fight through the appeal process. It greatly reduces the right of ordinary people to have their say in democratic debate and, regrettably, seems to be wholly reminiscent of a totalitarian state.”The Mail explained:
“A radio station was barred from broadcasting an advertisement on the rights of Christians at work after an intervention by Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt. Mr Hunt said the advert should be kept off the air because it was 'political'.
A High Court judge agreed yesterday and said that Premier Christian Radio was 'trying to make changes to society'. Mr Justice Silber ruled that the station should be banned from airing the advert, which asked for information from listeners who feel marginalised at work.
Mr Hunt is the second of Mr Cameron's ministers seeming to go against the Prime Minister's claim earlier this month that a 'Christian fightback' is under way and that 'the values of Christianity are the values that we need'.
Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone has opposed the rights of Christians to wear crosses at work in a submission of the Government's views in two test cases to the European Court of Human Rights. She has told the European judges that THE GOVERNMENT BELIEVES CHRISTIANS DENIED THE RIGHT TO WEAR A CROSS AT WORK SHOULD FIND ANOTHER JOB…
The advert said that, according to surveys, 60 per cent of Christians think believers are being increasingly marginalised at work. It asked listeners to report their own experiences to its website because 'we are concerned to get the most accurate data to inform the public debate'. The advertisement said: 'We will then use this data to help make a fairer society.'
The Radio Advertising Clearance Centre, an industry-funded body which checks radio ads to ensure that they comply with the law, said the appeal should not be broadcast. When the radio station went to court to challenge the decision, Mr Hunt stepped in to ask the judge to enforce it.
Mr Justice Silber said in his ruling: 'The advertisement was seeking to obtain information and it stated that such information would be used to inform the public debate and to help make a fairer society. This information which it was seeking would be used so as to try to make changes to society'."'Such information would be used to inform the public debate and to help make a fairer society.' And helping 'to make a fairer society' when the anti-Christ is busy doing the opposite will never do. Not in the land of unfairness, it won’t.
Jeremy Hunt, who, is up to his over-priviliged, Charterhouse Head Boy neck in pro-Murdochian sleaze at this moment in time, is married to Lucia Liu, a Chinese woman. A global villager to the hilt then.
Justice Silber and Lynne Featherstone are Jewish.
