Editor: Neil Erikson has been found guilty of “disturbing religious worship” and will be sentenced in coming days. XYZ News has published his defence, and evidence that the so-called Metropolitan Community Church was not a legitimate religious organisation, had received illegal funding from government, and that the Victoria Police “investigation” of the incident was hopelessly biased.
Ryan Fletcher has responded to the verdict. Below is James Fox Higgins’ response:
At the time that Neil committed this “crime”, I criticised his methods, and did it to his face. We had a less than friendly argument about it, and Neil (rather rightly) listed his various activist actions which had caused controversy and stirred up political dissidence, and pointed out (also truly) that I was just an armchair commentator and was not in a position to judge him.
I was coming from a place of not liking the ugliness and confrontationalism of his approach in starting trouble at a weeknight “bible study” group at the gay Church in question. Ultimately, I was coming from a place of cowardice and Christian naivete.
What has been revealed in the years following this incident, both in the facts surrounding the case, and also in my own walk as a Christian, is that Neil (though certainly confrontational and at times too vulgar for my overly verbose and intellectual taste) was David to a more disturbingly large Goliath than I had realised.
These were not merely misguided Christians trying to be accepting of all sinners, but actually the shop-front of an illegal, state-endorsed anti-Christ cult, who are given special protection by the Victorian state government and police, specifically because they endorse anti-Biblical lifestyles (sodomy) as the central tenet of their ultimately luciferian doctrines.
The levels of corruption surrounding this fake gay church, and its intimate ties to (alleged) paedophile-and rapist-in-chief, the scumbag Daniel Andrews – who has since proven himself to all thinking humans to be the lowest form of grifting, parasitic, demonic hellspawn ever to hold public office in this country – has been shocking to say the least. Neil’s strong verbal pushback (upon invitation, as the court should have recognised) paled in comparison to the demonic fervour with which these sodomites cast him out, and the physical violence they used to force him out the door.
It turns out, despite my initial reaction of distaste, out of cowardice, that Neil was being far more Christlike than those who threw him out of the church.
Did any members of the gay church congregation show up to defend Neil and try to mercifully spare him jail time? Because that’s what a REAL Christian would do. We don’t seek to weaponize the judicial system to imprison people who cause us minor nuisances. We forgive.
Forgiveness and mercy are true tests of the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit. Jailing people for citing scriptural standards of behaviour is a true sign of Satanism.
Woe unto them who call evil good and good evil. I never said that the gay church was good, but I did question the morality of Neil’s “invasion” of their state-funded bumsex temple. Woe unto me.
I was wrong.
Neil was right.
And now he might do jail time for it. I salute you brother Neil, and I apologise for criticising you as I did. There was a log in my eye, even as I pointed out the mote in yours. You are doing God’s work exposing this dark underbelly of Victoria, racketing in the name of our Lord.
Woe unto them above all.
