PREFACE:

As in almost every posting on ACP I too the liberty to remove weak, sleight-of-tongue misleading language, abbreviations and euphemisms pertaining to the abomination of sexual perversions against God and nature of homosexuality, lesbianism, bi-sexual and trans-gender deviants and inserted exactly what the people who practice such acts are.

Yes, they are correct. Language is VERY important and we have allowed the corruption, the perversion, the bastardization the degrading and weakening of language pertaining to these abominations far too long.

What has and is taking place in England, all of Europe, Israel, Australia, Canada, the United States and all the West and most of the world is deplorable. Sinful. Bowing to these sins and perversions and allowing them to dictate, prevail, and establish all the standards, laws, and language for the 98% of the population which do not partake of their deviant behaviors and practices. Think about that people. Think long and hard.

Are we next going to soften, alter, euphemize, abbreviate to confuse and weaken pedophilia? Murder? Rape? How far will you permit this total erosion of standards in society to go? How far will you allow the Bible and God to be mocked, pushed aside and treated in such a manner while such sins, perversions and abominations are obeyed as if they are the word and God?

Think on that. Long and hard.

This is the world you want? Well, this is the world we have allowed with our apathy, our apostasy, our appeasing sin and evil and allowing everything and anything under the sun while we destroy the foundations and turn from God!

What is taking place in England described in the article below is taking place all over this world daily and increasing by the day. Take some time to search through the archives here on ACP to see the multitude of articles pertaining to the rise and idolization of these abominations and sins while the foundations of society, the Bible and life as it has been established for thousands of years are eroded, toppled and destroyed.

London’s tube drivers aren’t allowed to say ‘ladies and gentlemen’ anymore

If you’ve taken a ride on London’s Underground, also known as the Tube, you’re probably familiar with the cheerful conductor announcements about delays and door openings, often premised with a jaunty, “Ladies and gentlemen.”

No more. Transport for London has announced that the London Underground staff will ditch that greeting for the gender-neutral “Hello, everyone” in an effort to make all passengers feel welcome. That language will also be incorporated into the prerecorded announcements made across the capital city’s transport network.

“We have reviewed the language that we use in announcements and elsewhere and will make sure that it is fully inclusive, reflecting the great diversity of London,” said Mark Evers, the agency’s director of customer strategy.

The move comes after almost a year of campaigning by militant lesbian, homosexual, bi-sexual and trans-gender perversion groups, which argued that the current language was polite but outdated. “Language is extremely important to the lesbian, homosexual, bi and trans community,” the militant lesbian, homosexual, bi-sexual and trans-gender sexual perversions group Stonewall said in a statement. “We welcome gender neutral announcements to be rolled out across TfL as it will ensure that everyone – no matter who they identify as – feels accounted for.”

It started after Aimee Challenor, an equality campaigner and transgender woman, had an uncomfortable experience with Transport for London’s helpline for Oyster, the smartcard payment system. After she gave her name, the phone operator said that the 19-year-old “didn’t sound like a Miss.” Challenor said she was “shocked” by the comment and later asked London Mayor Sadiq Khan to apologize. He did, vowing to investigate ways to boost awareness at the transit agency. Khan asked the transit agency to adopt the new greeting almost six months ago.

“People are saying it’s such a small thing, and get a life, but it’s these little things which can make people’s lives better,” Challenor told the Evening Standard. “London is a city I love traveling through,” she said. “But hearing these announcements — we are living in the 21st century, not the 19th.”

Khan told the BBC that he was “keen” to have London’s tube drivers speak in a more neutral way. “TfL serves a vibrant, diverse and multicultural city,” he said. “I am aware however, that some customers may not relate to or feel comfortable with the way that certain station announcements are made.”

Transport for London said it has begun retraining its staff. Though the agency expects that conductors may slip up sometimes, there will be regular reminders.

Not everyone agrees with the change. One Londoner posted on Facebook: “I despair of our London ‘mayor.’ London has so many problems and issues — announcements on buses isn’t one of them.” Another wrote: “Ridiculous, What is wrong with ‘ladies and gentlemen’?!”
