“It’s coming through a crack in the wall
On a visionary flood of alcohol
From the staggering account of the Sermon on the Mount
Which I don’t pretend to understand at all
It’s coming from the silence on the dock of the bay
From the brave the bold the battered heart of Chevrolet
Democracy is coming, to the USA.” (Cohen)

First we overlook evil.
Then we permit evil.
Then we legalise Evil
Then we promote evil.
Then we celebrate evil.
Then we persecute those who call it evil.

Isaiah 5:20 “ Woe unto them who call evil, good, and good, evil!”

  1. Boris Johnson’s speech – a transcription of which is available on the Guardian’s website – was a ‘pep’ talk for industry leaders. It was intended as an encouragement to British industrialists (using their jargon) to keep going and to innovate and lead the world during this extraordinary time. Quite honestly it’s been distressing to witness the media’s complete dismissal of it on the merits of one script blunder because if they had concentrated on the rest of the content and been less biased it would have done us all good to be shown it in full, with the embarrassing bits edited out. After all, the media are good at editing out the bits they don’t like and leaving in the bits they do. They’ve shown themselves for what they are in this instance.

    1. It wasn’t ‘one script blunder’ – it was a shambolic, buffoonish performance. It is not the media, but Boris who has shown himself for what he is…

      1. You’ve obviously never worked in industry. He listed their achievements and successes, he outlined the challenges ahead and the fact that he has faith in British industry’s abilities to meet them. What approach would Kier Starmer have taken I wonder.

      2. It has nothing to do with never having worked in industry – neither has Boris! It has everything to do with making a pathetic speech, full of bluster and narcissism.

  2. The Christianity Today article says, “Durham University claims that in offering training alerting student sex workers to the challenges they might face, it is merely recognising reality and fulfilling its duty of care to keep students safe. It is not their place, the university claims, to pass judgement. Rather, they are acting responsibly “by offering vulnerable students advice on how to stay safe and ensuring ‘social stigma’ did not stop them from accessing support”.”
    I wonder if they would take the same attitude towards a student who went to them and said, “To make ends meet I’ve decided that I will rob banks. As you do not pass judgement and ‘offer advice on how to stay safe’ please will you help me in my chosen work by offering me advice on how I can rob banks without being caught?”
    Of course Durham University is passing judgement. It is judging that there is nothing wrong with being a prostitute.

  3. Thank you for this week’s Quantum, full of interest as usual, I’m hoping when you finish Job and Romans you will be inspired to do more You are a light in the darkness it would be good to have you back here in Scotland . Have a lovely trip even in the rain of which we have much.
