Lies, Damned Lies and Tommy Robinson

Twitter erupted last night with the enraged tears of the far right as high profile hater convicted fraudster Stephen Yaxley-Lennon was relocated from his current incarceration in Hull to a jail in the Midlands. Although initial leaked info suggested Tommy had been moved to Leicester jail, the current (as yet unconfirmed) belief is that he […]

The Right to be Openly Atheist

This article has been written by guest writer Laurence Crouch. A valuable piece. We regularly highlight the rights of people of faith but it is equally important that the rights of atheists to their own beliefs are also not overlooked. As I’m sure most readers of this site will agree, hatred, violence and oppression should […]

A Letter to Jayda From A Muslim RH Member

One of our Muslim membes writes an open letter to Jayda Fransen discussing matters of faith. Dear Jayda, I am proudly and unapologetically a Muslim. I’m no hate-driven, fear-injecting bigot like you and I am thankful for that. Unlike you, I actually love Jesus Christ, upon whom be peace.  Moreover, I genuinely follow his teachings […]

Resisting Hate – Our Beliefs and Values

As Resisting Hate have grown as a group and a community we have started to receive a lot more coverage. Some of this has been very positive, some not so positive and some downright libellous. But one thing it has shown us is that it is important to be transparent and  consistent with the messages […]

Defeating Trumpism with Faith

A faith based article written by a guest writer Past U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower once said: “A people that value privileges above principles, soon lose both.” It is true, indeed, that we have become a people seeking progression, however, we are a divided people; an occupied people. Notwithstanding Eisenhower’s comment and, apart from the fact […]

Respect in Religion

Respect – we all know about it and we all know what it is. But there are too many people who don’t use it. People who do not believe in the importance of treating their fellow humans in the same way that they themselves would like to be treated. Sadly, a lot of people do […]

No Far Right Haters, You Are Not Pagans

Ever since I had the misfortune of seeing Jack Renshaw, the leader of proscribed hate group National Action, wishing one of his white supremacist members a merry Yule I have become increasingly uncomfortable with the links various far right haters have been attempting to make with Paganism. In much the same way that Britain First […]

The Comfort of Spirituality

Guest article from a Pagan – Thank you to Brigantia for sharing these beautiful words with us. After a day scouring the news for information, hoping beyond hope that this child is found or another gets home safe as more and more parents send out appeals for their missing children, I am sat in my […]

Defending The Right To A Faith

As someone who believes in the importance of standing up for the rights of religions to observe and practise their different faiths I often get asked when I am planning to convert to a religion different to my own. It rather amuses me how many people (my oldest friend included) secretly expect me to convert […]

Why Resisting Hate Don’t Take Sides

Quite a lot of things frustrate me about running an anti hate group – the venomous people we interact with day in day out, the pitiful logic employed by the far right and the inability of racists to express themselves beyond memes and the block button to name just a few. However, nothing frustrates me […]

Whereof One Cannot Speak…

This famous quotation from Wittgenstein is usually interpreted as being an indictment on the inability of language to express complex truths. The implication being that if we do not have the necessary words we should refrain from the attempt. I’m stretching the scope of the quote slightly here to extend to the idea that in […]
