UK’s Home Office turned down a Christian convert’s bid for asylum in a letter quoting bloodthirsty passages from the bible to prove Christianity is not a religion of peace.
One of the passages quotes examples from The Book of Leviticus, from the old testament, while others focus on passages from The Book of Revelations.
After quoting another bible package the letter says ‘These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a ‘peaceful’ religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence rage and revenge’.
The Iranian national claimed asylum in 2016, but was turned down, with Home Office officials saying his conversion from Islam was ‘inconsistent’ with his claim Christianity was a peaceful religion – by highlighting violent passages from the bible
Officials appear to have used six examples taken from the Bible Gateway – a searchable online bible, and one of the world’s most well-utilised Christian websites.
The refusal letter also quotes parts of The Book of Leviticus from the old testament.
The full statement below the verses says: ‘These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a ‘peaceful religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence, rage and revenge.’
