Christianity is clear about distinctions, wisdom and truth, but not 12 woke bishops from the Church of England. They are advocating the breaking of UK laws:
Twelve bishops at the increasingly woke Church of England have penned an open letter to the government urging them not to turn back illegal migrant boats coming from safe, EU member-state France.
“Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán marked the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks by saying that it proved “Christian civilisation” must be defended at all times, and vowing to stop mass migration from facilitating further terror.”
Even the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, spoke out in a rare declaration:
About the case of Batley Grammar School and the protests after a teacher showed prophet Mohammad’s cartoons in his classroom…what do you think about the way things have been handled? Is there a conflict about freedom of speech?…..In this country, we have to hold on to freedom of speech.
Unvetted immigration has been a nightmare for Western countries, while woke useful idiots keep on aiding and abetting the practice, which serves to import Sharia and jihad. Donations are not being well spent in those Churches that mislead the faithful, aid in the subversion of Christianity, and display a reprehensible tendency to abandon the victims of jihad — including victims of Muslim rape gangs, which have been so pervasive in the UK.
“Church of England Bishops Urge Govt Not to Turn Back Migrant Boats”, Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, September 13, 2021:
Twelve bishops at the increasingly woke Church of England have penned an open letter to the government urging them not to turn back illegal migrant boats coming from safe, EU member-state France, published by the leftist Guardian.
The 12 senior clergymen, who described themselves as “bishops within the Church of England with a particular oversight of asylum and refugee issues” — a focus that comes amid the institution currently experiencing a collapse in church attendance and belief — said they were “deeply concerned about the government’s approach to migrant crossings of the Channel.”
The Bishop of Bristol, Bishop of Chelmsford, Bishop of Croydon, Bishop of Bradwell, Bishop of Dover, Bishop of Durham, Bishop of Gloucester, Bishop of London, Bishop of Manchester, Bishop of Southwark, Bishop of Wakefield, and the Right Reverend David Hamid, Suffragan Bishop in Europe, claimed that the “new ‘turn back’ policy, which will see boats forcibly returned to France… raises significant moral concerns,” arguing it “starkly increases the risks at sea and endangers the lives of those attempting the crossing.”
The bishops were referring to a supposedly tough new policy of turning migrant boats trying to reach England around at sea in “very limited circumstances”, which border hawks have long argued would actually decrease risks at sea by discouraging people from attempting illegal sea crossings in the first place, as happened in Australia and, while it still had a strong policy against seaborne migrants, Italy.
The woke bishops also alleged in their letter that the Nationality and Borders Bill the government is putting before Parliament “would criminalise not only attempts to cross the border irregularly” — i.e. illegally — “nor even simply people-smuggling, but even those who take part in the rescue of boats in distress at sea.”
They claimed that “This would require those who see asylum seekers at risk to choose between ignoring a moral imperative (also established in maritime law) to assist them, or to risk prosecution and imprisonment,” arguing that this was the equivalent to “criminalisation of the Good Samaritan who did not pass by on the other side, and an affront to justice to put the saving of lives under any sort of legal penalty.”….
