  1. 1 This is a post Levitical “should”. The introduction and conclusion to the New Atlantis report into Sexuality and Gender should be required reading for all Christians, at least for leaders and disseminated into the culture/media. Don’t know the beliefs of the authors, but, no doubt, they’d be open to scrutiny in attempts to discredit the research.

    2 Christianity heritage of the UK and the BBC’s stance of “airbrushing” it out.
    This shows your age – it’s been photo-shopped or pixelated out of existence, except in sports commentary, especially soccer where players atone or redeem themselves. And how about mortgages being “redeemed” by being paid in full. There are likely to be many vestiges or roots in language.

    This week, flipping again through Keller’s book on preaching drawing on the work of Charles Taylor he emphasises the secular dilemma that arises from the denial of Christian history in the West:
    “Since secular modernity believes that its values have not come from Christianity but are simply the deliverances of objective reason, we can not appeal to any other society to adopt human rights without first telling it that it needs to jettison Hinduism or Islam or its tribal religion and become secular. Taylor writes that there’s an inability of many Westerners to see their culture as one among many,”

    Keller continues, “Western secularists insist that their view of equal rights is simply self evident to any rational person, but non-Western cultures do not agree – they are far from self evident.

    Because truly secular people can’t admit the source of their main moral values in their Christian history, it makes them imperialistic”

    3 Abortion. The Christian Institute has this article with the heading
    http://www.christian.org.uk/news/we-should-declare-that-unborn-children-are-equal/

    It could be renamed, “Equal rights for the unborn” .
