Quantum 22 – 2018 – End of Year Review

This is the last Quantum for 2018.   I wanted to do a review of the year but as I looked at the most popular blog posts for this year I realised that they covered most of the main issues so I thought I would combine the two. You can listen by clicking on the link below.  (there is a fair amount of music in this … Continue reading Quantum 22 – 2018 – End of Year Review

A War of Loves -David Bennett

The Christian book world seems to be filling with gay Christian memoirs.  First there was the disappointing and depressing Vicky Beeching’s ‘Undivided’.    This was followed by Jackie Perry’s well written and refreshingly biblical  Gay Girl, Good God . Then we went downhill again with  Jayne Ozanne’s  Just Love – Now we come to David Bennet’s newly released book, War of Loves.  The self-description summarises it well:  David Bennett … Continue reading A War of Loves -David Bennett

Jayne Ozanne – Just Love – A Journey of Self-Acceptance (and ITV on Conversion Therapy)

ITV news is at it again.  Presenting a one-sided piece of ‘news’ which is in reality propaganda – with no attempt at any kind of balance.   Look at the video  in the link which treats those who believe that someone might change their sexuality (something which has demonstrably happened) as being almost equivalent to terrorists – or at the very least heretics against the new … Continue reading Jayne Ozanne – Just Love – A Journey of Self-Acceptance (and ITV on Conversion Therapy)

As the church seems to be in decline, the number of religious items in the news increases and the clergy are everywhere. Tom Nairn’s quip that Scotland wouldn’t be free until the last Church of Scotland minister … Continue reading The Rise of Civic Christianity and the Collapse of the Church – The October Record Editorial

Gay Girl, Good God

‘Oh no’ I thought[‘ here we go again’. Yet another memoir on being a gay Christian. But I had heard this girl was good…..so I ordered Gay Girl, Good God in the hope that it might not be bad. I was wrong….it is superb!   This is the book that Vicky Beeching should have written! There is so much that is good about it. It is … Continue reading Gay Girl, Good God

Keep Silent….or Speak Out?k

Returning to the Vicky Beeching saga there are a couple of responses that need to be carefully considered…and which raise up much wider issues: Hate/Love Mail I don’t mean either the hate or love mail….As an example of the former this one is a cracker (written in the name of love!). You are doing the work of the devil. You are keeping people from Christ! … Continue reading Keep Silent….or Speak Out?k

The Soft and Hard Intimidation of the Church – A revealing 24 Hours….

It’s been an intense but revealing 24 hours.  I have learned to an even greater extent just how deep the rot is in the contemporary church, and just how easy it is for us to be intimidated and bullied into silence. Let me set the background, then explain what happened yesterday, and then offer some analysis of what precisely is going on. Vicky Beeching brought … Continue reading The Soft and Hard Intimidation of the Church – A revealing 24 Hours….
