School's Out !

Coming to a school near you ... yes, it's Reverse Sweep History month, featuring all those famous deviants (approved ones) - like Florence Nightingale. And Shakespeare.

Love comforteth like sunshine after rain,
But Lust's effect is tempest after sun;
Love's gentle spring doth always fresh remain,
Lust's winter comes ere summer half be done;
Love surfeits not, Lust like a glutton dies;
Love is all truth, Lust full of forged lies.

Simultaneously Ruth Kelly is on the rack for allowing deviants (disapproved ones) into schools.

Meanwhile another Christian blogger - David Holford. As far as I know no relation.

I like "playing the reverse sweep". How about "fielding at fly slip"?

Bad luck, Christians lost the social argument. Nobody really cares what they say. It must be sad knowing that you're part of an insignificant organisation.

Oh well, in about thirty years Christianity and Christians will have died out. BYE!!

You relaise that Holford chap is a creationist?

I don't mind Mr Holford being a creationist. Better than being an abortionist.

You're aware of a strawman argument right?

There never was any "social argument" made in favour of homosexuality. The pro-gay lobby with the pro-gay media have been telling us less and less subtly for years that gay is good, and, like somebody famously said, if you repeat a lie often enough people will believe it.

I've kicked many a straw man into the long grass before doing some blue-sky thinking ...

Anonymous makes it sound like "creationist" is some sort of perjorative. Where I come from that just sounds plain silly. When you consider that 44% of Americans are creationists, or roughly 132 million people, that more than twice the population of the UK.

I'm guessing this is the same "anonymous" that suggested that Christianity and Christians will have died out in 30 years. There are 1.2 billion Christians in the world and the number is growing. It is growing much more rapidly in the global south than it is declining in Europe.

Christianity may die out in Europe, but that will soon be an irrelevance, because there is not a single European country with a replacement rate of population. It's Europe that lost the argument and will soon be an insignificant organisation.

In fact, the Muslim population growth will ensure a future return to violent persecution of gays (not that I'm in favour of violent persecution, but don't think any of your social "achievements" amount to much in the long term.)
