    My ex-flatmate on brixton rd used to piss out the window on the Nation of Islam guys. They didn't like it but he he never got busted afaik.

    Rather than buckets of water get a bunch of folk with super soakers, you are merely horsing around, oh look oops we've soaked some bigots!!

    Drive-by squirting...? Or I guess you'd be better on bikes as there's no numberplate to trace.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    It certainly wouldn't pass the 'red face test'.

    I think he obviously had no dress sense then. The Nation of Islam have proved a boon to the manufacturers and purveyors of bow ties. They suffer from the American black nightmare - burning crosses at dawn. Lynchings within living memory. Your "friend" should be more tolerant IMHO. Or did he have the obverse side of the American nightmare? The uncontrollable urge to burn crosses and lynch?
    If so see if he could displace that onto an annual pilgrimage to Lewes Bonfire Night

    Greebo 'scuse me, Mrs May, can I have my country back? R.I.P.

    Which of course, excuses members of the NOI turning their own ethnic identity group against every other, not to mention spouting such racist tripe as all white people are devils.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Marie Stopes supported eugenics and was a product of her class, her time and her environment as far as anti-Semitism went. So far, so ordinary. That a Catholic newspaper attempts to obfuscate the importance of Stopes' work by drawing attention to her personal prejudices, as if they invalidate her work, is indicative of the Catholic Herald knowing that they've got nothing worth saying about the core business of the Marie Stopes clinics.

    You could perform a Norman Wisdom tribute dance that would enhance your clumsiness. :)

    I like the idea of ridiculing the protesters with witty signs like they do in America at Tea Party/anti-healthcare protests

    I started a thread about this kind of action a while ago.
    I think it's a pretty good idea.

    I think I would be more inclined to go and quietly stand with my own placard stating "Every one has the right to choose life because the have the right to choose" and "destroying the right to legal abortion is both socially and physically damaging to society" or something wittier.
    I just can't do the aggressive stuff.
    Not saying I would mind if anyone else did though ;)

    Exactly the same point was made to be by a friend of mine down the pub today. Ur correct.

    What annoys me is the contempt that the Herald must have for its readership. I don't know who edits it currently, but this slide into propagandising Vatican policy and treating the readership like eejits started under Odone, and what is really rank is that the Herald at one time had a fairly progressive readership and would publish thought-provoking and probing pieces on the Church. Nowadays it kisses arse.

    About a month ago, I saw a man outside the entrance with a rosary in his hands, doing what seemed to me like praying. I was mystified but kept walking past him. Then I remembered that's the abortion clinic!

    is a rosary long enough to hang yourself with? being an atheist i am unfamiliar with these things.

    Ok, bunging the cat amongst the pigeons, maybe, but has anyone here ever tried actually engaging these people in conversation.

    Shouting at them, throwing things etc. is going to harden attitudes in exactly the same way as when young teens get kettled on a peaceful process.
    I've changed minds in conversation with others, and also had my own mind changed. At worst you'll just be wasting your time rather than entrenching their resolve.

    you can't argue with people who think they have god on their side. the wrath of the righteous is the only language they understand.

    I asked a Nation Of Islam chap if I could have one of his papers as I was interested in what they had to say, but he refused to even acknowledge me .
