Lucia Ominous Government harrassment of Christian Blogger

The first I heard of this story was from the Protect the Pope blog. A prominent Christian and conservative blogger, Cranmer has fallen foul of the British Advertising Standards Authority for an advertisement that he ran on his site which asked readers to sign the petition to defend traditional marriage.

As many of you here may know already, there seems to be a strong desire by David Cameron, the British PM to implement "gay marriage", even though the option of a civil union is available for those of the same sex who wish to be seen as unified by government contract, and even though the population seems dead set against the idea.

Already, Catholic Bishops could be in trouble for asking Catholic schools to publicise the marriage petition. Apparently this is "political indoctrination". Right, never mind that marriage between a man and a woman is the orthodox Catholic doctrinal position.

Meanwhile, Cranmer was told to keep the matter confidential, but rather than bowing down to government intimidation, he went public. As he said:
Since His Grace does not dwell in Iran, North Korea, Soviet Russia, Communist China or Nazi Germany, but occupies a place in the cyber-ether suspended somewhere between purgatory and paradise, he is minded to ignore that request. Who do these people think they are?

We are the government and we are here to help. NOT.

Isn't it interesting that siding with the current legal position of marriage in Britain is considered to be "homophobic" and "political indoctrination"? Welcome to the bizarre new world where defending the status quo gets you into trouble with the Government.
