by Gillan @ God and Politics in the UK

Can you imagine this ever happening in the UK Parliament?  Democratic Congressman, Bobby Rush, donned a hoodie on the floor of the House of Representatives and quoted Micah 6:8 and Luke 4:18-19 as he spoke out against the death of black teenager Trayvon Martin yesterday.

    Wasn’t there an actual fistfight in the UK Parliament just a few years ago?

      Joesix, I’m not sure if that is the case but I don’t mind being corrected. I suspect there has been the odd handbags at ten yards in the bar afterwards…Should it matter? Both would be wrong…..
