ON July 18, a rag-tag collection of Christian numpties will embark on a “March of Repentance” from London’s Hyde Park, where there is a sizeable population of pigeons, but precious few seagulls.
Good news for Stephen “Birdshit” Green, who, we assume, will be putting in an appearance at the event.
The march, according to Repent UK’s FAQ, will be:
A gathering of humbled believers seriously wanting to join with others in pleading before His throne of Grace.
What won’t it be?
A procession with no meaning, a pious or self-righteous exhibition.
So what will these bozos be repenting of?
We are not told whether this “inactivity” includes the failure to incinerate heretics and witches, and stone homosexuals.
We are repenting of our own inactivity and silence, our lack of courage and faith in His word, our unwillingness to speak out â€˜in the great congregation’ and our failure to discharge our responsibility to pray and witness with the mind of God into our nation.
Will they be repenting on behalf of millions of non-believers like us? Or for the nation as a whole?
No. Only the Queen in Parliament can do that.
Will the media pick it up?
What, like a whopping great expenses claim for providing a listening ear, and the odd bolt of lightning?
We don’t know if the secular media will, although the Christian media are taking an interest already. But our audience is not the media, it is the Almighty. We believe the Lord will see and hear from heaven, and when He sees us doing what little we can, and hears our cries, we believe He will send a miracle, if not a miracle of repentance, then something equally astounding.
So, who exactly is behind the march?
Someone called Steve McCreery, whom we assume is a cohort of Green, because we managed to find him pictured last December at Sermonaudio.com with the unreconstructed misery-guts from Christian Voice, and a man wearing a god collar. Furthermore, we learn from Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion that McCreery’s website is registered to Christian Voice.
The only other picture of McCreery on the net shows only his legs dangling high above the earth. He appears to be in Rapture rehearsal mode in the shot he placed on the Christian networking site, Premier Community.
Apart from that we know absolutely nothing about McCreery, and if anyone can fill in the blanks, we would love to learn more.
Green, meanwhile, has gone suspiciously quiet. There has been nothing new to amuse us on his Christian Voice website for months – not even the results of his “Marriage and Family in the Bible” contest which closed on April 20, 2009.
According to CV:
Your essay can have any title, so you can be as inventive as you wish, but you will need to show to the best of your ability how marriage and the family, based on the union of one man and one woman for life, were the plan of God from the beginning of time and backed up by Jesus Christ Himself.
The essays, if any were ever received, must have been a barrel of laughs, and we really do think they should be made available. Come on, Mr Green, it would be the Christian thing to do.
