Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Home Office has refused asylum to a Christian convert by quoting Bible passages which it says prove Christianity is not a peaceful religion.

The Iranian national, who claimed asylum in 2016, was told passages in the Bible were "inconsistent" with his claim to have converted to Christianity after discovering it was a "peaceful" faith.

The refusal letter from the department states the book of Revelations - the final book of the Bible - is "filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence", and cites six  excerpts from it.

It then states: "These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a `peaceful' religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence, rage and revenge."

Theresa May goes to chruch every sunday without fail and she created the "hostile evironment" at the Home Office.

I'd have said that all you needed to do was quote the Prime Minister to prove x-tianity os quite okay with callous disregard without getting into the weeds of the bible

keep to the Fen Causeway
