Gay Sex and the Election

Perhaps we have already seen the low point of the 2017 election campaign. This interview with Tim Farron was surely something of a nadir. Why do I say it was a low point?:

  • It shows the moral deterioration of this country. If a politician, even twenty years ago, had said gay sex was not a sin, that would have wrecked his career. Now it is completely the reverse. Today if a politician says gay sex is a sin he is likely to be vilified. This is all emblematic of a change in our ethical culture. Historically, we had a culture formed around biblical values. Now we have a culture formed around secular values, The former led to stability, the latter inevitably leads to chaos. I fear for the future of our nation. 
  • A decent man, for that’s what Tim Farron seems to be, has been treated like a suspected criminal by the press. He has now been hounded, cornered and humiliated and all in the name of the new freedom. It is as if the press would not let him go until they had “shamed” him out of office or forced him to tow the secular line. So how do they feel now that they have battered him into submission? 
  • What does this really have to do with issues that people really care about? Not much, I suggest. But it is everything with regard to what the ruling elite care about. This is because they are set on demolishing the values connected to historic Christianity, which have been the bulwark of this country. It is interesting to observe how the new doctrines are continually pushed upon us. Sports programmes on radio, for example, so very easily have everybody towing the line by the way they raise sexuality issues. If anyone speaks against the new norm, astonishment and outrage ensue. To say that gender is fixed and homosexuality is  abnormal is now to be a heretic.
  • This all raises the question as to why Sadiq Khan, a man who professes Islam, was not hounded in the same way last year when he was campaigning for the London Mayor.
  • According to my reading of the Bible gay sex must be a sin. No matter what exegetical gymnastics you indulge in, it seems impossible to get away from this. So a public figure who professes Christianity has now said that gay sex is not a sin. All of which only confirms the secularists in their disdain for the rest of us who firmly believe it is a sin.
  • And then there is the by-issue here of faith being private. Again that is a glorious victory a for the anti-Christian activists who want to suffocate Christianity. And it is a blow for all those who have been accused of wrong doing through mentioning their faith at work.

Oh what a sad event this is.
