UK arrested Tommy Robinson for reporting child-rape gangs that the government caters to. The UK banned reporting of his arrest, denied him a lawyer, and is trying to have him assassinated in prison. Regardless of how you feel about his views, this is a totalitarian government.

Tommy Robinson isn't the first to that the UK has jailed after a secret trial. Melanie Shaw tried to expose child abuse in a Nottinghamshire kids home -- it wasn't foreigners doing the molesting, but many members of the UK's parliament. The government kidnapped her child and permanently took it away. Police from 3 forces have treated her like a terrorist and themselves broken the law. Police even constantly come by to rob her phone and money. She was tried in a case so secret the court staff had no knowledge of it. Her lawyer, like Tommy's, wasn't present. She has been held for over 2 years in Peterborough Prison. read, read

List of early Christian literature

Symbolic artwork of the Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Below is a list of early Christian literature. The scope covered is prominent pieces of early Christian literature from the earliest Apostolic days of the Church, until the death of the latest Church Father, Isidore of Seville in 636. Much of this was authored within the borders of the Roman Empire. Differences between East and West, which eventually led to the Great Schism of 1054 (between the Catholic Church and Orthodox Church) occurred gradually as Germanic tribes took over the West and Greeks held onto the East, both claiming to be Christian Rome's true heirs. Many early works were written by Apostles, Church Fathers or clerics, or other prominent figures. Texts which feature in the New Testament are featured in bold, with translations provided from both the King James Bible and Douay-Rheims Bible (the most respected English language translations).
