Don Francisco is a Christian songwriter with a heaing ministry for helping the spiritually wounded find their way back to God.

I turned down a free ticket to one of his concerts in the 1980's, because I was so smashed up emotionally and spiritually at the time, and hardly trusted anyone any more. It's one of the regrets of my life that I didn't go to that concert.

This is Don Francisco, singing one of his beautiful healing songs:


Customs Confusion

New visa rules trip up traveling religious workers.

Bobby Ross Jr. / May 14, 2009

After an overnight flight from Denver, Christian singer Don Francisco arrived at London's Heathrow Airport intending to perform in an Easter music program in the English port town of Poole.

Instead, the 63-year-old American said, he was photographed, fingerprinted, and taken to a small detention room with a seatless toilet bolted to the wall.

Hours later, Francisco said, armed guards led him to a van parked on the tarmac, where he was ordered inside a cage and driven to a British Airways jet.

"They escorted me on board, where they handed the stewardess an envelope containing my passport, boarding passes, and other paperwork," he said.

Just like that, Francisco was sent back home. His crime: listing his occupation as "gospel singer" and failing to obtain a religious worker visa—something he had never needed on previous visits to the country.

Over the last year, the United Kingdom has phased in a points-based immigration system designed to regulate the labor market and help prevent terrorism.

However, the new system has thrown Christian workers and organizations into confusion because the U.K. Border Agency has not taken into account the complexity of religious activities, the Evangelical Alliance said.

The London-based advocacy group for the nation's estimated two million evangelicals cites a number of cases in which groups or individuals were refused entry after traveling to the U.K. to speak or volunteer.

Alliance leaders have drawn up guidelines to help Christians navigate the system and posted them online (

"Some of the problems we have seen are due to churches not being fully aware of their new responsibilities, while on other occasions, immigration officials have wrongly banned people from the country because they haven't understood their own rules," said Daniel Webster, parliamentary officer for the Evangelical Alliance.

Amid fears of terrorism, religious worker visas have come under heightened scrutiny in the United States as well.

"I can't say that the government is particularly easy on any occupation," said Peter Cramer, an immigration attorney in Boston. "However, in the last few years, religious workers have come under increased scrutiny because of a fraud audit … which found one-third of the cases to be tainted by fraud."

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services implemented new anti-fraud measures last November, including on-site visits and investigations of religious organizations before a U.S. consulate overseas can grant a religious worker visa.

"It has been my experience that religious organizations, in an effort to assist the 'needy,' sometimes view it as a greater good to help someone and stretch the truth about what the immigrant will do for the organization," said Elaine Witty, an immigration attorney in Memphis, Tennessee.

To that extent, Witty said, "It is arguable that this 'crackdown' is something that religious organizations brought on themselves."

On the other hand, she said, government attempts to root out fraud in the religious arena raise First Amendment questions. Daughter of an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, Witty cited a case in which the U.S. government determined that one of her clients, wanting to do religious work in America, could not be a Christian because he was born in India.

"In fact, his family's ties to Christianity dated back to Thomas the Apostle!" she wrote in an e-mail. "I won on appeal, but it was a costly and unnecessary litigation."

A longstanding government policy makes it tougher for foreign religious workers (compared with those of other occupations) to remain in the United States. However, in a class-action case in March, a federal judge in Seattle struck down that policy.

Its a great pity they had to be frogmarched into doing the right thing, they should have had this report made available online years ago.

They should also have given all us Pindown victims copies of it years ago, and not subjected us to years of reabuse from the military secret services, who have been using their surveillance powers inappropriatly, by stalking victims of these crimes, making sure we Pindown child abuse victims had our characters well blackened, getting some of us put into prison and squashing the ones they couldn't deliberatly criminalise into nervous wrecks and allowing disgusting creeps like Nigel Oldfield to prey on us and call us "Nut jobs".

The Pindown report is a damage limitation excercise, it doesn't go back far enough, and it doesn't go into the rapes of children that were happening at Chadswell Assessment Centre in the 70's, but at least them publishing this digitally is a small step in the right direction.

The million pound question is: who can stump Chris?

Quizzer becomes the quizzed - and fails final round, writes Sean O'Neill

12:00AM GMT 13 Mar 2003

Christopher Tarrant, 56, a radio DJ and television presenter from Surrey - married with six children - won through to the hotseat at the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? trial yesterday.

Better known as Chris - only his mother still calls him Christopher - he presents Britain's most popular quiz show and has given the nation the catchphrase "Is that your final answer?"

Chris has been in showbusiness for 31 years, finds it hard to stop talking and is definitely more used to asking the questions than answering them.

But at Southwark Crown Court the quizmaster was to be quizzed by four of the finest that the English Bar has to offer. If he didn't know the answer there would be no opportunity to phone a friend or ask the jury.

The £1 million question on everyone's lips was - which of the four eminent barristers (if any) would leave this professional talker lost for words?

Would it be:

A: Nicholas Hilliard, senior Treasury counsel, the prosecutor, who has been painstakingly building up, layer by layer, a picture of the extraordinary events at Elstree Studios during the recording of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? on Sept 10, 2001.

B: Sonia Woodley, QC, the tall, headmistress-like counsel for Major Charles Ingram - a woman whose disapproval one would not wish to incur.

C: Adrian Redgrave, QC, for Diana Ingram, a stern-faced man who uses words economically and quietly but with firm authority.

D: David Aubrey, QC, a broad-chested, red-haired Welshman who represents Tecwen Whittock and can be quite withering in cross-examination - the day before, he questioned a television executive on whether he had frisked Ingram's "private parts".

The audience was small, but intensely interested. None more so than the three people in the glass-fronted dock - the Ingrams and Whittock - all of whom had previously faced Chris in the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? studio.

On this occasion Whittock, who won £1,000, Mrs Ingram, who collected £32,000, and Ingram, winner of the disputed £1 million at the centre of the trial, faced Chris across a courtroom.

The presenter, wearing a dark suit and a red shirt with no tie, appeared tense as he took his seat in the witness box. His first answers were little more than "yes" or "that's correct".

As on Chris's quiz show, those early questions were pretty straightforward. They came from Mr Hilliard who is, after all, on the same side as Chris.

It was Chris who had allegedly been deceived into signing a cheque for £1 million and Mr Hilliard's job to prove that the deception was criminal.

The presenter's mood lightened visibly and he was soon ready for Miss Woodley's questions. He batted one away rather curtly but quickly found humour a better method.

Asked if he had hugged an emotional Ingram after his big win, Chris quipped: "In a manly way."

The austere Mr Redgrave fared little better. He recalled a question about the name of the gang in West Side Story that rivalled the Jets - did Chris remember it?

Chris replied instantly: "The Sharks."

Mr Redgrave: "That is the answer, but . . ."

Chris: "Have I won?"

The jury liked the jokes, so they flowed readily. Mr Redgrave asked about the "daft questions" at the beginning of each edition of the quiz.

Chris: "Because they are at a fairly low level of general knowledge we tend to speed through them."

Mr Redgrave: "A fairly low level? Has anyone ever got that first question wrong?"

Chris: "It happened in America."

Mr Aubrey was next to try his hand and combined his questions with flattery for the programme and its presenter. It was he who finally stumped Chris with a question wholly unrelated to the case.

"Tell me," said Mr Aubrey, "why do they call it the Green Room?"

"I can't remember," Chris confessed.

But the question did not go unanswered. Judge Geoffrey Rivlin piped up from the bench that, because his wife is a musician, he knew the answer. "I'll tell you later," he informed Mr Aubrey - provoking a theatrical groan from the courtroom that forced him to relent.

The Green Room, said the judge, is so called because all such facilities used to be decorated with "a strange green paint which was very cheap" and also because it was where performers gathered just before going on stage "when they all turn green".

A new kind of lifeline had been invented: Ask The Judge.

Even a Home Office research report has recently given an important measure of official recognition to the fact that children over ten (this being the age of criminal responsibility: no attempt was made to assess consent in younger children) can and do consent in sexual acts with adults. The report refers to child 'partners' in such sexual acts, rather than 'victims'. 37

Just found out about the new plot the paedogangsters are planning to do away with me.

They are trying to get me arrested for some non crime, MSBP to be precise, so they can get me in a police cell and suicided.

They've roped in all sorts of people who don't really understand what they are up to, as usual.

Well, if it just so happens that I do get arrested for this non crime, I will not be reacting as they would like me to react, and so any bruises on my body will be from people beating up a non resisting person trying to protect herself. So anyone will be able to see straight away that it was murder, not suicide, and not a case of self defence as an excuse for brutality against me either.

Plus, I have asked God to protect me, quoting psalms 35, 36 and 37. I have asked God to let me live, and not to be a martyr. I have told God I don't lay down my life for any of these wicked devils, and neither am I suicidal.

I want a quiet life, I want MI5 to stop hacking my computer, putting double clicks on it and reading and even stealing some of my private communications, I want to be allowed to live in peace, with my family, including my son who is being spied on even now, the son who was illegally taken to Drake Hall prison for PE lessons from his school without my permission. I want my daughter and her partner to be left alone as well. Its not too much to ask, but apparently some people think it is.

I am not Hilda Murrell and I am not Princess Diana either, I am Barbara Richards, a mum who got abused as a child and who has had one hell of a fight with the vermin who are running an international paedophile/human trafficking ring who have done their level best to destroy me (against the wishes of the Lord my God, who they despise)

I would like them to leave me alone, well alone, stop the stupid spying, stop the stupid plotting, just leave my family alone!!!
