LONDON — Britain’s immigration department has been condemned for citing violent Bible passages as the basis to reject an asylum claim by an Iranian national who said he had converted to Christianity because it was a “peaceful” religion.

The Home Office — which is responsible for handling immigration, security and law and order — used verses from the books of Leviticus, Exodus and Revelation in an attempt to argue that Christianity was hardly “peaceful.” The asylum seeker’s application was denied on Tuesday, according to the man’s legal representative, who shared details on social media.

There's also a story of the UK PM denying asylum to a Pakistani Christian who was being persecuted

Marine1, So is the rest of Europe and now New Zealand. Soon you will have nowhere to emigrate to. You are stuck in SA with the ANC and Malema. That is so sad, Rolf

All of the Abrahamic religions have passages of violence. It was written not far off cave dwelling people so what do these idiots expect.

The important thing to understand is that the majority of jews and christians do not live by the sword and claim the most violent passages as their call to arms however muslims seems to operate in record speed towards the violence parts when they don't get their way.

Talk about the image of Muhammed ? Off with your head. Just to name one pile of garbish argument.

I am not even religious and knowing the differences is not much effort if you want to be honest about things.

According to a study in 1986 by Burke Peerage, one of the top genealogical publishers of the world, Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom – the world’s oldest living monarch – is allegedly a descendant of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, specifically, the 43rd great-granddaughter of the Prophet.

Too much thumb sucking in that geneology report. I give it a plausible accuracy rating of 5%.
