Just a brief blogpost on a few things that caught my attention today.
Certain quarters of the Christian online world have been at war over the issue of Complementarianism. You can find the background info and latest salvo details here if you’re interested. Adrian Warnock recently took part in a Premier debate on this topic and says this is “one of the most controversial subjects facing the Church today”.
Personally I think this is more an issue facing the Western Protestant Church and amounts to narcissism of small differences.
News today that Pussy Riot have been nominated for the European Parliament’s annual Sakharov Peace Prize.
I don’t agree with their custodial sentences, but a peace prize…..
The New Statesman got itself into hot water by running a full-page advert for Core Issues. PME200 blogged on this from a gay vantage and details the outcome. Core Issues have provided a response to the New Statesman which can be read here.
The English Defence League are marching in Norwich this Saturday in support of Reverend Alan Clifford who was banned by the council from distributing anti-Islamic literature from a market stall. Revd Clifford has made it clear that he is in no way affiliated with the EDL, but goes on to say the EDL rightly endorse his view on Islam.
Not the wisest of comments.
