It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

UK Street Preaching Could Be Curtailed Under Proposed ‘Antisocial Behavior’ Law

Christian street evangelists could be caught under new antisocial behavior legislation currently being debated in the House of Lords, a senior peer and campaigners have warned.
 
The new antisocial behavior bill, if successful in the House of Lords, would replace current antisocial behavior orders (ASBOS) with injunctions to prevent nuisance and annoyance (IPNAs) that could target open air preaching.
 
“The combination of a low and vague threshold for the behavior trigger, coupled with the civil standard of proof, creates an unacceptable risk that individuals will inappropriately be made subject of a highly intrusive measure that may greatly impact on their fundamental rights,” said Lord Macdonald, former Director of Public Prosecutions and Liberal Democrat Peer.
 
“Of course political demonstrations, street performers and corner preachers may be ‘annoying’ to some. They may even, from time to time be a ‘nuisance,’” he continued. “The danger in this bill is that it potentially empowers state interference against such activities in the face of shockingly low safeguards and little apparent acknowledgement of the potential effect of its provisions on the ability of citizens to exercise core rights without undue interference.”

Macdonald also said the planned IPNAs, which fall under clause 1 of the new antisocial behavior bill, could result in “serious and unforeseeable interferences in individual’s rights, to the greater public detriment.”
 
Deputy Director of Public Affairs at the Christian Institute, Simon Calvert, warned that the law was worrisome and would ultimately not work.
 
“It is a crazy law. It will give massive power to the authorities to seek out orders to silence people guilty of nothing more than legitimate protest,” he said. “The dust hasn’t yet settled on that successful campaign against criminalizing ‘insults’, yet the government is back again with a new law against ‘nuisance’ and ‘annoyance’.  When free speech and the right of protest is challenged in such a draconian way, you start seeing unusual alliances spring up. We saw it over the successful campaign to reform Section 5 of the Public Order Act.”

The word ‘insulting’ was dropped from controversial Section 5 of the Public Order Act after successful campaigning by the Christian Institute and secular organizations. Under the reformed section, it is no longer illegal to use insulting language where a specific victim cannot be identified.
 
The campaign to change the section followed the arrest and prosecutions of an Oxford student who asked a police officer “Do you realize your horse is gay?” Thames Valley police described the comments as homophobic and “offensive to people passing by.” A 16-year-old also got into trouble under the section after holding up a placard that said “Scientology is a dangerous cult.”
 
If passed, the antisocial behavior laws could apply to those inside a private dwelling, as well as in a public space, to any activity, which has the ‘potential’ to be annoying or a nuisance. Under the proposed powers, courts could also grant injunctions on the basis of ‘convenience’.  The proposed law requires only a civil burden of proof (balance of probabilities) and there is no defense of ‘reasonableness’.
 
The bill is currently at committee stage in the House of Lords. The bill needs to go through a reporting stage, amendment stage and a third reading in the House before it becomes an Act of Parliament by the Royal Assent (Queen’s agreement).

WOW!! Just imagine when this gets here in America. They have been trying to make Christianity a mental disorder for years and here is the way they are going to do it. Its already a mental disorder..

Quote
Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), also called dissocial personality disorder, is a personality disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for, or violation of, the rights of others. There may be an impoverished moral sense or conscience and a history of crime, legal problems, impulsive and aggressive behavior.
 
Antisocial personality disorder is the name used in the diagnosis manual DSM, whereas dissocial personality disorder is the name used in the ICD. Both manuals have similar but not identical criteria.[1] Both have stated that their diagnosis has also been known as psychopathy or sociopathy, though the criteria are different to some other commonly used assessments.[2][3][4][5][6] Antisocial personality disorder falls under the dramatic/erratic cluster of personality disorders.[7]

We are already seeing how the returning vets are all being given "mental health issues" so they cant own weapons. All you need is for your Obamacare doctor to say oh, your a Christian, well that labels you as antisocial, and BAM!! thats it.

At the same time, this same Psychiatry Industry probably found that very anti-social "Seinfeld" show very entertaining. Roll Eyes

The Psychiatry Industry is really coming up with all kinds of "disorders".
