Oh dear


This is a story from about three weeks ago, but I had forgotten about it until earlier today.  The above photograph shows a billboard which announces that the Sevenoaks Chronicle, one of our local rags, is covering a new twist in a “sex debate row in Oxted”.  Not knowing that there had been a sex debate row in the first place (let alone the new twist) I went online to find the story. It turns out that the row concerns a leaflet that was stocked in our local bookshop, Paydens (pictured below).

The “new twist” can only be the news that the bookshop no longer stocks the leaflet, entitled The Outrage of Immoral Sex, which summarises the aims of sex education in schools, saying:

It is not difficult to see that sex education is a weapon in the hands to those who are promoting a revolution against God’s standard of sexual behaviour.

Our children and grandchildren are the targets of a massive state-sponsored propaganda campaign against Biblical morality.

Oh dear.  It seems that person behind the leaflet is a member of the right-wing group Christian Watch. For examples of their modus operandi, see here.  They were one of the groups that objected to the GPA advertisement linking homophobia to Christians (a complaint which was largely upheld).

Meet Griff quotes Doctor Seuss’s Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? in his comment on those who feel “called by God” to watch over the rest of us naughty people. If these groups object so strongly to being associated with homophobia then why don’t they ever bring out pamphlets attacking bullying and homophobia in our schools as being “unChristian”?
