By now many bloggers will have followed the example of Dr Joseph Shaw and added the Coalition for Marriage advertisement by way of expressing support for Archbishop Cranmer, who despite being a long-dead heretic, remains, in my humble opinion, the best religio-politico blogger on the net. It is a shame that His Grace is long since deceased, in his current incarnation he stands head and shoulders above the rest of the field of potential candidates for the see of Canterbury.
Neil Addison has the URL of the banner on his site, for anyone experiencing difficulties in uploading the advertisement to their sidebar. Every single proponent of free speech must stand up and prepare to be counted against this moral tyranny.
I cannot say anything that has not already been eloquently articulated elsewhere, suffice to say Orwell would be spinning. That’s if he’s not already in terms of the execrable, mediocre sub-GCSE level ranting that is spewed out by bullies, bigots and plagiarists that passes as political writing these days and awarded recognition by the liberal ‘elite’ in his name.
Mind you since Orwell’s openly expressed aversion to religion, that can come as no surprise. It is a tragedy that as Christians we seem to have failed to demonstrate how correctly understood, taught and lived-out Christian morality can be applied to the greatest social issues of our age. It is, without a doubt, the best counter-weapon to the scourge of the Big Brother mentality, ever devised.
Marriage is the union of one man and one woman for the purposes of procreation.
During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. – George Orwell
