Illogical BNP Foreign Policy and the “Reverend” West

HOPE Not Hate Norfolk writes:

The “Reverend” Robert West is contesting the Norwich North seat for the British National Party in the by-election set for July 23.

The BNP has not contested the seat before, and Robert West said the party was taking on the challenge in that light. “We intend to establish the BNP as a name in the area in order to build for future elections,” he said.

“We will be fighting this by-election on local issues and how they are impacted by the mass immigration invasion of this country,” Robert West explained

Reverend West is moderator of the Christian Council of Britain and a former Conservative councillor who joined the BNP, he says, after it “became clear that the Tories were committed to the Islamification of Britain just like the Labour Party”.

In the meantime the leader of the BNP, newly-elected Member of the European Parliament, Nick Griffin, has offered his solution to “mass immigration”.

British National Party leader Nick Griffin has told the BBC that the EU should sink boats carrying illegal immigrants to prevent them entering Europe.

Mr Griffin, who has a suspended prison sentence for “inciting racial hatred” said:
“Frankly, they need to sink several of those boats. Anyone coming up with measures like that we’ll support but anything which is there as a ‘oh, we need to do something about it’ but in the end doing something about it means bringing them into Europe’ we will oppose.”

The MEP for the North-West of England said the EU had to get “very tough” with migrants from sub-Saharan Africa. Pressed on what should happen to those on board, he said: “Throw them a life raft and they can go back to Libya”.

Many people would agree that there is a problem with illegal immigration. Britain and Europe are not the only areas that are facing the results of unsustainable population growth and poverty. Human beings in some parts of the world have the stark choice between starving at home or migration.

And yet the illogical and inhumane BNP policy is against any foreign aid for to assist people to stay home.

The BNP is against all efforts of developed countries in assisting in the development of poor countries.

The BNP manifesto states:
“FOREIGN AID – time to spend our money on our own people! We reject the idea that Britain must forever be obliged to subsidise the incompetence and corruption of Third World states by supplying them with financial aid.”

The BNP “foreign policy” lacks common sense, let alone any humanity.

So how does the “Reverend” Robert West reconcile these “very tough” BNP policies of hatred and rejection with the Christian message of love?

Jesus once said, according to the Gospels, that a man cannot serve two masters. It would be interesting to learn how the “Reverend” Robert West can serve a hateful political party like the BNP and also serve Jesus as a Christian cleric.

Unfortunately HOPE not hate, Norfolk has not been able to contact the “Reverend” West for his explanation. He has been in Wales giving speeches for the BNP.

Apparently the people of Norwich North are not important enough to meet in his by-election bid.

He seems to be neglecting the electorate, just as he neglects his own Christian Council of Britain website, of which he is founder, moderator, and, according to some, the sole member. The CCoB site’s most recent – indeed only – entry on its “Sunday Lunch” blog discusses an article in the Daily Telegraph from November 23, 2007

Could it be that the Christian Council of Britain is a dummy organisation?

If so, what does that make the “Reverend” West?

    The gospel of Christ is catholic in the sense that it is freely offered to all, no matter what your race, nation or background. However, there is nothing inconsistent with preaching the gospel to all and having a patriotic commitment to your own race or stock. Paul preached the gospel to all “nations” (Greek: ethnos, whence “ethnic group”) and yet had a special love for his own. I think that people sometimes come to this issue with a number of preconceptions or prejudices which, in the light of day, are not credible. Strong feeling is evident; we also need to have clarity of thought. Christ sent us to make disciples of all nations, you are quite right; but He did not send us to abolish them.

    fuck off West you racist nobjockey you are not welcome here

      I am not sure that the folk who criticise Mr Nick Griffin of the BNP have really thought through their position. Giving foreign states handouts is not the way to nurture thrift and responsibility and so is hardly ethical or Christian. It could undermine their independence and foster a dependent ‘colonial’ mindset, which is what they sought to leave behind with the “winds of change” in the 1960s. It is possibly unfair on the British taxpayer too. One way we could help foreign peoples is by not taking their skilled doctors and nurses; but that is BNP policy, so you would not be interested in it, would you? Why give handouts to Pakistan when its government is running an arms build-up and a Nuclear weapons programme? Are opponents of the right-thinking usually for these things? Certainly, do please interact with us on the moderate Right although maybe your arguements need just a little fine-tuning. It would also possibly help if you read the Bible to see what it does teach on, for example, the death penalty or ethnicity. You may be in for a surprise or maybe even a shock. Who knows. But you would at any rate become better informed. With kind regards.

    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you and grant you repentance to the acknowledging of the truth. He died for sinners, such as you and I; and there is (I dare say) there an “equality of opportunity” that you dare not to turn down.

    West you are no minister of Jesus, you are of the BNP of Satan, there is no record of your ordination and no denomination willing to associate with you or your beliefs.

    • RevRMBWest

      Dear Sally,

      Thank you for your comments and we would welcome you to our services where the gospel of the love of Christ is always presented to all races. However, if you look at our Constitution you will see the Biblical references as to why God has divided us. The death penalty is also Biblical. Although this may not fit your preconceptions about what Christianity is, that is possibly because you need to patiently re-examine them. May God, in our Lord Jesus Christ, give us all the patience to re-examine our views and pre-conceptions.

      With best wishes in HIM, the Redeemer of sinners.

    There seems to be a general failure on the part of the clergy to teach what the Holy Bibles says on a host of subjects, and this may explain why some folk have very ill-formed views of the Christian message and Christian truth. It may also explain why a lot of folk no longer go to church. If readers read the Holy Bible for themselves they will gain a lot of help without the need for clerics of any sort. It may be helpful to begin with the gospel of John and then follow that through with Paul’s Letter/epistle to the Romans. True faith comes by hearing or reading God’s word and if you are not getting it at church you need to get it in the home. There is no need to worry about the light of the truth: it shines into every dark corner of our hearts and overcomes the power of darkness. But the test of light and darkness is what God says in His Word, and to that all-powerful Word and all-gracious God, I commend you!

    RevRMBWest suggests reading the Bible.

    For those of you who are too time-strapped to do this, may I suggest you really only need the words of Christ,as recorded in Luke 10:27 which sum it all up:
    And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

    Our Jewish neighbours might like to consider
    Leviticus 19:18: ‘You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the LORD.
    and
    Deuteronomy 6:5 “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

    • RevRMBWest

      Dear Aliyya,

      The Bible does teach the existence of nations (Greek: ethnos, whence “ethnic group”); and that is a very important part of its political theory. Obviously the personal morals of the Bible are important, as well, for personal conduct. But such personal morals do not override or undermine the Biblical principles for international relations, immigration policies or the judicial system. “Liberal” (anarchist?) clergymen quite often think that they do, which is why they often hide in their cathedrals. It is important that I do not do the same but proclaim the truth, in its Biblical proportions, for all to hear. Do come alone to my services some time.

    What are you a Reverend of RMB West?

  8. RevRMBWest

    Dear Mr Kobi K,

    I am trained and ordained as a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ to preach His gospel to all nations (Greek: ethnos, whence “ethnic groups”). I also conduct baptisms, wedding blessings, and funerals; lead a Christian fellowship, and moderate (chair) the Christian Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. I am, in addition, the religious affairs spoken for the British National Party, which is a patriotic British group which opposes the immigration invasion of Britain, the Brussels dictatorship, and the imposition, on Britain, of Islamic fundamentalism or law. There is nothing inconsistent with preaching the gospel, as a minister of Jesus Christ, to all nations, and yet wanting to save your own nation,together with the other peoples now here, who may also suffer from the extremism of Brussels, or Baghdad. If you would like me to conduct some of your services, I would be more than happy to do so, time allowing, if you would be so kind as to cover travel costs.

    Please do visit our website or write to the CCoB, PO Box 41, Spalding, Lincolnshire, PE12 2AH.

    Remember, God loves you, and so do we.
