An event encouraging young adults to take an interest in zombies and the occult is to take place after hours at a children's play centre.
A group calling itself Rise of the Zombies is holding an event based on zombie role-playing at Fun Farm in North Hykeham near Lincoln on Saturday 27th October. The group's website declares this area contains flesh-eating
zombies and promotes the experience as an adrenaline-packed, blood-soaked, zombie survival gorefest .
It then tells people they will go through a scare-maze with live actors, with many missions and objectives to make it as close as possible to a zombie pandemic . This experience involves live action horror, blood and gore .
Stephen Green, National Director of Christian Voice, said:
This zombie-themed event may appear on the surface to be an occult version of paint-ball, but its emphasis on a class of sub-humanity and on blood-letting makes it unacceptable to be held at all, let alone in a place where children are normally
The website for "Fun Farm" where the event is being held clearly states that the venue is a "family entertainment centre" with a maximum age limit of 12 years old. In contrast, the photo gallery for Rise of the Zombies has
images of people smeared and dripping with what appears to be blood, others of people seeming to eat human flesh and yet other images with sexual overtones. It is incomprehensible that a civilised society would think that is entertainment.
What kind of message does it send to young children who may hear of this event or see something of what is happening and what effect might this have on them?
How many parents want to take their child to a venue which the night before has been promoting "violent behaviour" which is "stripped of normality and mental balance"? And for that matter, what kind of people could even
consider renting out their premises to a group like "Rise of the Zombies"?
It says a lot for the state of our nation when in stark contrast to the scriptures people find entertainment in imagery and themes deeply based in the occult.
A Christian activist has been found not guilty of a public order offence after he handed out leaflets for the group Christian Voice that criticised Tesco's decision to donate £ 30,000 to this year's World
Raj Bhachoo was arrested in January outside a Tesco store in Kent where he allegedly distributed anti-gay leaflets relating to Tesco's sponsorship of a family area at the July 7 event.
Stephen Green, national director of Christian Voice, who previously described World Pride as a display of depravity, said in a statement:
Christians just keep winning these Section 5 freedom of speech cases. It is not against the law to preach against sodomy, to tell the public the facts about homosexual lifestyles, nor to display graphic images of the effects of abortion.
These things might upset people, but they are not threatening, they are not abusive, they are not insulting and they are not against the law.
Around 200 Christians marched as a group in the Pride procession in London on Saturday to show their support for the dignity and equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Many wore T-shirts declaring Christian and
Many other Christians joined other parts of the parade. A small number of Christians stood at the side of the march with placards expressing their sorrow for Christian homophobia. Later, a Christian service for Pride participants was hosted at
Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church. There were also participants of other faiths at the event, including Jews and Muslims.
Those protesting against Pride included members of the right-wing fundamentalist group Christian Voice. The group's director Stephen Green criticised groups involved in Pride for trying to present homosexuals as normal people .

North Wales Mardi Gras 2012
North Wales Mardi Gras 2012
Beaumaris Centre, Anglesey
An offensive and extreme leaflet attacking homosexuality has drawn criticism and complaints to the police. in an Anglesey town.
A pamphlet by the extremist Christian Voice organisation opposing the town's planned Mardi Gras was circulated in Beaumaris. Entitled Say No to Beaumaris Mardi Gras , the leaflet claims that gay pride events are intimidating and
that gay people can be released from homosexual desires .
Town clerk Trevor Ashenden said the leaflet was one of several items of correspondence which the town council had received from Christian organisations opposed to the event, which is set to take place from April 27 to April 29.
Following complaints from residents and businesses in the town, the council has released a statement which states:
The legality of some of the statements in the leaflet and other correspondence received has been questioned, and this matter has been referred to the police.
Stephen Green, national director of Christian Voice, said:
The town council would be better off objecting to the display of depravity which is the Mardi Gras. That's where they should be directing their ire.
He said representatives of Christian Voice would attend the event and that the complaints made to the police would go absolutely nowhere .
Opposition from homophobic Christian Voice leader Stephen Green has reportedly boosted ticket sales for North Wales' Mardi Gras this weekend.
Media attention regularly attracted by Green has led to five hundred ticket sales for the Saturday festival. Alan Jones, of North Wales Mardi Gras, told Wales' Daily Post:
The publicity that has been generated by Christian Voice and their extreme opposition to the event has helped ensure this will be a sell-out. People from further afield who may not have known about the event have heard through this.
Stephen Green himself said:
We had to make a stand, we had to stand for right. We will be at the event with the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we will be talking to people and handing out leaflets.
According to Stephen Green, leader of Christian Voice, there is a simple explanation for the infestation of mice which has forced Tesco's Metro store in Covent Garden to close. He said:
Nothing has gone right for Tesco since they decided to support Gay Pride. Their only hope is to repent of that decision and put their trust in God.
Green blames Tesco's gift of £ 30,000 to London Gay Pride in November 2011 for the mouse infestation. He also says this has led to a drop in sales and profits, a poor performance over the Christmas period and a
plummeting in share prices.
Ben Summerskill, chief executive of Stonewall retorted:
In comparison with years of famine, plagues of locusts and pillars of salt, the Good Lord can't be very displeased if all he has arranged on this occasion is a minor infestation of mice at Tesco Metro in London WC2.
