Persecuted Christians Not Welcome in UK

The Catholic Herald reports:

An Iraqi nun who wants to visit her sick sister in the UK has been denied a visa by the Home Office.

Sister Ban Madleen was driven out of Qaraqosh, the biggest Christian town in the Nineveh plains, by ISIS, who took over her Dominican convent. She settled as a refugee in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdestand, where she set up kindergartens. The refugees are returning to their home towns now that ISIS have been driven out.

Sister Ban is not the first religious to have problems visiting Britain, according to Fr Benedict Kiely, founder of Nasarean.org, which helps the persecuted Christians of the Middle East. Another Dominican nun with a PhD in Biblical Theology from Oxford has been refused a visa twice……

……. In December 2016 three archbishops from Iraq and Syria were refused entry into the UK despite being invited by the country’s Syriac Orthodox Church for the consecration of the UK’s first Syriac Orthodox Cathedral, attended by Prince Charles.

Catholics bear the Brunt of Persecution

It was revealed by Labour Party MP, Elaine Smith, in the Scottish Parliament’s General Question Time, that “Catholics were subject to more attacks than all other religious groups combined.”

Catholics make up 15% of the population of Scotland but the figures show that 57% of all religiously motivated crimes are targetted against Catholics.

This anti-Catholicism, integral to the British State, is still reflected by the fact that any member of the ‘royal family’ who becomes a Catholic is forced to renounce any claim to the Throne.
