Merry Christmas!



Keep in mind the fact that the Son of Man, the Christ who lived and was executed by the government of His day, was a great leader, and leader of the common people. It was his great message of Love and Brotherhood which brought him to his death. He knew the poor of the earth were oppressed by the rich and wealthy, and in scathing terms denounced the money changers and all those who defiled the Temple and brought suffering to starving humanity.

George Lansbury, 1926.

A very Merry Christmas!

A very happy Christmas to you too, Neil.

And may we each have a peaceful year in 2009.

No liberal he, but a devout Anglo-Catholic in that movement's golden age, before it became riven between those who define themselves by their opposition to the ordination of women on grounds of high-camp and highly promiscuous homosexuality, and those who define themselves by their support for the ordination of women on grounds of high-camp and highly promiscuous homosexuality.
