Control of Iraq has just been "handed over"

There can be no fair elections while the US rules by the back door.

This was the Autumn 2003 pulpit message:
DSEi arms fair - unnecessary evil
The government says selling arms benefits the economy.
Well so does drug-dealing and importing toxic waste.
But we don't have to subsidise them by half a billion pounds each year!
Trading in instruments of death is immoral, dangerous
This was the July 2003 pulpit message:
Genetically modified future

A question of priorities
Iraq's nuclear facilities are being ransacked and its uranium is being stolen. But don't worry, the oilfields are well guarded!

This was the February 2003 pulpit message:
NOT the GENERALS' CHILDREN
General BUSH and General BLAIR
and their CHILDREN will sit in SAFETY while OTHER PEOPLE and their CHILDREN
DIE in a WAR for WHAT ?
Don't let the GREED of the GENERALS cost the INNOCENT
their LIVES !!!!!!!!!
This was the January 2003 pulpit message:
Only a matter of time....
America holds by far the greatest stockpile of WMDs, and has therefore appointed itself as the judge, jury and executioner for the rest of the world.
It has, along with the UK, announced it is prepared to use nuclear weapons on anyone it considers a threat - regardless of who strikes first.
The test ban treaty has fallen apart - America is about to resume testing nuclear weapons, with half a dozen countries aiming to follow their lead.
The only way to prevent a nuclear catastrophe is to demand a total world disarmament of ALL nuclear, biological and chemical weapons now - BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
This was the December 2002 pulpit message:
Son of Star Wars in Yorkshire?
The US have just stated that they are prepared to use nuclear weapons if they think fit.
We are now being 'consulted' on whether to let the US use Fylingdales and Menwith Hill for their Son of Star Wars programme.
Please tell the government to spend the £10 billion set aside for it on peace and aid instead - this is nothing but an open declaration of war!
We wish you a happy christmas and a peaceful new year.
This was the November 2002 pulpit message:
The Siege in Russia
Yet another example of a small and violently oppressed minority being driven to extremes by the failure of their peaceful protests.
Yet another example of a major power getting away with using so-called weapons of mass destruction.
Yet again - violence against violence - and everyone loses!
This was the October 2002 pulpit message:
Do we want Star Wars?
NO, NO, NO!
August/September 2002 pulpit message:
The US hold weapons of mass destruction.
They are the ONLY NATION EVER to have used nuclear weapons - remember Hiroshima!
They are the REAL terrorists - if we support them, what does that make us?
July 2002 pulpit message:
Blood and money
Israel's treatment of the Palestinians is inhuman.
While it is terrible to be a suicide bomber, it is just as terrible to drive someone to it.
But what is unforgivable is for Blair and Bush to sell
arms and profit from their pain. Their so-called ethical foreign policy
is nothing but murder for money!
June 2002 pulpit message:
Is money more important than life?
In Kashmir war is imminent. It may be a nuclear war.
There has been plenty of warning - after three previous wars, this one has been building up for many years.
Yet Britain sells arms to both sides.
Even now the British government refuses to suspend the sale of 60 Hawk jets to India.
Britain is the second largest arms exporter in the world (after the US).
Without weapons, wars don't happen.
