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."
