A Threatened Religion

Some in the community believe the British government should help them build their Mandi.

One of them is 22-year-old Marwa Roomi who is studying to be a human-rights lawyer.

"They have a duty... to the Mandaeans here, to those in Iraq still being persecuted and to those in Syria and Jordan who are stuck there because the UK and other countries invaded Iraq."

Sabian Mandaeans - a religion that is apparently based on pacifism. Should the Government help them build their temple?

No the taxpayer should not pay for their temple and Human Rights Lawyers should be shot.

Yeah, well there ain't too many believers in the Ancient Norse or greek religions left, and no ones campaigning to save them, and they're far more relevant to our culture then this fcuking bollocks, especially with chippy 22 year old know it all future human rights lawyers gobbing off at what they don't understand...

They have the right to practice their religion. They do not have the right to force everyone else to pay for them to practice their religion.

I'm the Big Wizard of BZism; can I have a few million for a temple please :roll: In months we'd be solid with random cults wanting cash.

Exactly the responses I was expecting and must admit to being in complete agreement - which then begs the question of why the BBC felt this was even a story worth reporting?

One of the comments made was about them not being able to build their Mandi because they have no land, I feel I'm not the only person to think they should get off their backsides and buy some land themselves then rather than expecting a handout, based on the arguement put forward by the human rights bloke, because the UK invaded Iraq.

Shouldn't they be campaigning for a Mandi or whatever their prison for god is called, to be built using money seized from the Saddam regime then? Would seem fairer...

If local English churches have to raise their own money for repairing their roofs and the like, why should some flip-flop devil worshipping cult get preferential treatment? In fact why the feck is it even being reported?

Ah. The BBC. :roll: The epitome of all inclusive, diversity grasping, bottom fondling, out-reaching, disabled access loving cretins.

Ah yes, how cunning. Huge financial crisis, government borrowing up so it is obviously time for increased public spending to cushion the blow and clearly the 2012 Olympics will not create enough.

The surviving Koresh Branch Davidians are still looking for a place after that spot of unpleasantness at Waco so perhaps we could build a place for them as well.

That'll be the same Human Rights Lawyers who fight the Government on behalf of the families of dead servicemen will it? Or did you have another group of Human Rights lawyers in mind. Or is it that you don't really know what a Human Rights lawyer is, and that you're just a f*ckwit with a laptop?

There used to be a nice little scam going in Poland. Religions had zero taxation status, and any donations you made to a religion were tax deductible. Starting a religion, under law, was surprisingly easy, so you could walk into numerous company and even government offices and somewhere find a cupboard-like office had been converted into the local temple of The Lord Wibble, or whatever. Every payday, people would queue to hand over their salary cheques to the Mighty God. In return, they would recieve 90% back to help them promote the cause....... that got capped after a while!!!

I believe in the god of 20 lambert and butler will the govenment cough up for me as well, or try and make me give up?? I do not see the bloody human rights lot running to help me and the thousands of fellow L&B followers out in this free country of ours.
