Ireland pro-life rallyA Christian leader in Northern Ireland is fearful of what could happen if England's Parliament gets its way on two controversial issues.

The British Parliament has voted to impose abortion and homosexual marriage on Northern Ireland if it does not form a government by October 21 – although such measures would not likely to be implemented until next March.

Northern Ireland has been without a government for three years now.

Jim Dowson, who heads the conservative Christian group, the Knights Templar International, in the United Kingdom, condemns the parliamentary movement to legalize unbiblical practices.

“We have militias of 30,000 men with guns, so it's not a normal society,” Dowson told OneNewsNow. “So, if you want to go about killing off the babies, I think you're either a very foolish man or a very, very brave man, but let's hope either way, your life insurance is paid up and the policies are at hand.”

The right-wing British leader stresses that he is not in favor of violence, but Northern Ireland is a unique country.

“I would not condemn people for taking the law in their own hands because we should obey God's law first, and if you kill children, you're acting out what any formal law that I can think of that is sane, that is moral, and is in the benefit of the people,” Dowson clarified.

A poll conducted by LucidTalk shows that a small majority of citizens in Britain are against abortion.

The only way the country can nullify abortion and homosexual marriage is to form a new government – and take action by next week.
