So ... Iranian convert to Christianity seeks asylum in the UK. Writes in his application that he converted because Christianity is a religion of peace. The official rejecting his application calls bullshit on this and points out that the asylum seeker obviously knows nothing about Christianity, which is nasty and violent. He quotes the Bible to prove this. Hilarity ensues.
(Note: the UK has an official religion. It's Christianity.)
It would be nice if this was a satire on all the people who explain that Real Muslims Must Be Terrorists Because It Says So In The Koran, but it seems like it was just an ordinary exercise in creative asylum denial.
Anyway they've reversed the decision so anyone who wants to find this hilarious can do so without guilt.
I think that the employee who reviewed the application was clueless

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity. In the same way that "allowing people to choose what they want to be when they grow up" undermines communism.~Stile
