England, through the Magna Carta , has played a major historical role in the development of Parliamentary democracy.
Today however, within its new secular paradigm, the United Kingdom places fundamental human rights , such as the right to freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and parental rights second to “rights” to homosexual behaviour.
The Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society (JCHS) asked Christian Concern co-founder Andrea Minichiello Williams to visit Jamaica to inform the Jamaican public of the grave threats to freedom posed by the LGBT Lobby in the UK.
She graciously consented and gave several examples of persecution of Christians for their religious beliefs in the UK.
Mrs William has also founded Christian Legal Concern to assist some of these persecuted Christians who have been fired, demoted , lost business etc because they do not endorse homosexuality
During her presentation she alluded to a connection between the death of Tom Daley’s father and Daley being homosexual .
Mrs. Williams hypothesis is in fact a very reasonable one as the following extract from an article by Robert Oscar Lopez, a homosexual himself, suggests that older homosexual men exploit the absence of a father figure to initiate young males into homosexuality

Gay male culture in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and much of Europe is sick. It is literally plagued with disease — not only HIV (which is rising again), but also syphilis(which has made a comeback). And Michelangelo Signorile, the dowager prince of gay news at the Huffington Post, admitted at long last what gay watchdog groups had been denying for decades upon decades: the chronic, timeless state of the homosexual man is to chase after pubescent boys.
Signorile has been busy defending 39-year-old Dustin Lance Black, the screenwriter who seduced a 19-year-old boy — and yes, a teenager is a boy, period, even if he is a gold medalist; for heaven’s sake, he can’t even legally drink alcohol in the U.S. Signorile called the sleazy predation “intergenerational sex” and explained to all the “homophobic” people who might object that in the gay world, it’s normal for old men to sodomize boys.
Signorile says this is “nurturing” and educational, kind of like being someone’s private tutor, only the tutelage involves lubricant, preparatory enemas, and the tearing of the boy’s rectal lining, all in the name of initiation. It’s also unsanitary, painful, and likely to interfere with whatever development the boy might have toward eventual sex with women.

Mrs. Williams statement has generated significant anger among LGBT activists and some church leaders who appear to be “functional atheists” .
These “ functional atheists” in the leadership of the Church of England appear to have little concern for freedom of speech, freedom of conscience or parental rights.
Jamaica’s “buggery law” does not outlaw homosexuality but activities such as fisting, felching, farming, scat, chariot racing, jack hammering and anal penetration, a repertoire of intimate behaviour recommended to Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) by British Charity Terrence Higgins Trust on its Hard Cell Playroom website. The British Government has paid Terrence Higgins Trust to prepare material on sexual education for some British school children
The following are a part of the feeding frenzy.

Christian Concern founder Andrea Minichiello Williams angers gay rights campaigner after speech in Jamaica
The head of a British evangelical Christian lobby group has angered gay rights campaigners by urging Jamaica to keep same-sex intercourse illegal and reportedly suggesting that Tom Daley is in a relationship with a man because his father died.
To the dismay of mainstream church leaders Andrea Minichiello Williams, the founder of Christian Concern, spoke at conference in Jamaica to lobby against the repeal of the Caribbean island’s controversial law banning gay sex.
Mrs Williams, an elected member of the Church of England General Synod, the body which creates church law, apparently said that Jamaica had the chance to become a world leader in battling foreign pressure to decriminalize same-sex intercourse.
“Might it be that Jamaica says to the United States of America, says to Europe, ‘Enough! You cannot come in and attack our families. We will not accept aid or promotion tied to an agenda that is against God and destroys our families,'” she reportedly said at the event, which was held earlier this month in Kingston.
According to the news website BuzzFeed, which reported her alleged comments, she argued that it’s a “big lie” that homosexuality is inborn and blamed the “lack of the father” and “sometimes a level of abuse” for creating homosexual feelings.
She reportedly illustrated this by pointing to Olympic diver Tom Daley who came out as gay earlier this month. She is said to have added that he is “loved by all the girls and had girlfriends” and had “lost his father to cancer just a few years ago”.
Yesterday Martin Warner, the Bishop of Chichester, where Mrs Williams was elected to the General Synod in 2011, condemned the comments.
He told the Independent that they had “no sanction in the Church of England” and that they “should be rejected as offensive and unacceptable”.

While the gay rights charity Stonewall said it was “sad” that Mrs Williams is “supporting the prosecution of gay people simply for how they were born”.
Dr Keith Sharpe, vice chair of Changing Attitudes, an Anglian body calling for full equality for LGB&T people, said that her “bigoted outburst amount to dangerous hatemongering”.
He added that “Jamaica is one of the most dangerous places in the world for LGB&T people who suffer homophobic intimidation and violence on a daily basis” and that endorsing its laws on gay sex amounted to supporting the “vilest form of homophobia in a most terrible cultural situation.”
Mrs Williams is also the founder of the Christian Legal Centre, which funds high-profile cases “to protect the freedoms of Christians in society”. These include the failed 2012 appeal by Lesley Pilkington, a therapist struck off after offering to “cure” an undercover reporter who was posing as a gay patient.
Christian Concern said Mrs Williams was “unavailable due to a private matter” yesterday.
Next month she is set to address conference for the “ex-gay movement”, which is set to discuss controversial gay-to-straight conversion therapy at Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Westminster
The conference, which is entitled Setting Love In Order, will discuss controversial gay-to-straight conversion therapy and comes after Labour MP Geraint published a Private Members’ Bill in Parliament aimed at banning gay-to-straight conversion therapy by regulating the psychotherapy sector.
According to the conference website it seeks to protect “the freedoms to believe, to exist and to change when homosexual feelings are unwanted.”
Mrs Williams will be joined on a panel by Dr Michael Davidson, the founder of the Core Issues Trust, who in the past has described homosexuality as a “developmental aberration”. Dr Davidson told the Independent he did not view “homosexuality as a disease”.

@CConcern Would Jesus condemn homosexuals to imprisonment/death? Andrea Minichiello Williams is dangerously warped. Remove her from synod.

I’m wondering if @CConcern & @A_Minichiello should be categorised as a “Hate Group”. A bit like Westboro, just not quite as bad. #Christian

@CConcern You represent all that is nasty and bad in the history of religious abuse; your extravagant bigotry is a stain on humanity. Sham e!

Most Christians will be appalled by the comments of @CConcern encouraging Jamaica to keep it’s draconian laws against gay people.
