“”Even though our Queen was anointed to reign under the authority of God in the Name of Jesus Christ and given the Holy Bible as 'the rule for the whole life and government of Christian princes,' her ministers pass laws in opposition to the will of God.

Christian Voice is the United Kingdom's answer to American-style Christian fundamentalism. They are against (among other things) abortion, homosexuality, mosque-building in the United Kingdom and gambling. Their website claims that single-parent families, violent and non-violent crime, injustice and the fact that something is "deeply wrong" are all symptoms of the nation becoming less and less Christian. They also seem to be obsessed with homosexual police officers and police officers taking part in gay pride events (they're shaming their uniform, don't ya know?). They wrote to every single Chief Constable about it, then used it as statistical proof for moral depravity and decline. They also seem to be massively pro-monarchy. Think Fred Phelps meets the BNP.
The UK Co-op refused to continue the account of Christian Voice due to the anti-gay policy of the latter and both sides criticised each other with strong language. . Their website rants about all the usual suspects, they're also campaigning against the building of a mosque as part of the 2012 Olympics games.
 Jerry Springer protests
|“||Oh, no. Not that wanker. Tell him to fuck off.||”|
—Jesus Christ on Stephen Green
Practically unheard of before Jerry Springer: The Opera, they, or rather their leader Stephen Green, organised a hate campaign against the producers of the show and petitioned the BBC not to show it, even at midnight. Like so many fundies they fail to realise their television has an off switch, not that many of them would be likely to have seen it anyway before protesting.
 Brutal Britain and wife beating
Green, only stopped beating his wife because she divorced him, and generally gives wives few rights.  Green runs a site called Brutal Britain under the auspices of Christian Voice. Brutality is apparently fine when it's done in the name of Christ, it's just the godless brutality he objects to.
 On fake rape allegations
On the Christian Voice website, Stephen Green (who is no longer beating his wife) recently wrote an article which argues that women making false rape allegations against men is far more common than is thought (expert studies say that around 3% of rape allegations are false, which is quite small given how many rapes are not reported to the police). The article says that the figure is plausibly much higher because... women flirt with people. Really. There is apparently no major difference between a woman flirting with a man in a bar in order to get him to buy her a drink, and her risking criminal perjury proceedings by making false rape accusations.
