It’s not often that I side with Anglican bishops, but the Bishop of Carlisle speaks for me when he brands the UK Labour Government as ‘demonic.’ You can read about it here.
The bishop isn’t quite that blunt, but he says the Brown government with it’s draconian pro-homosexual laws, is like the decadent Roman Empire written about in demonic terms in the Book of Revelation. When you add to this the Labour government’s total relaxation of all restrictions on embryo experimentation –even allowing human-animal genetic experiments you can see what he’s getting at.
Today’s Mass readings focus on the prophet Jonah. We need a few more Jonahs I reckon–prophets who are willing to point out the horrors our modern society promotes.
