How Christians can turn the tide

Down the years, every country has some kind of moral order, Islamic, Confucian, Shinto or Christian, as the basis of its law and custom.

Fred Catherwood

In Europe, since the Dark Ages, the Christian moral order, though never obeyed to the letter, was accepted as the basis of British law and custom. When we lost that in the permissive 1960s, we lost the whole plot. Today, government and Parliament look to the think-tanks and their moral order is secular humanism. But the ideas of the intellectual elite do not persuade the ordinary voter. Its 'reforms' consist mainly in demolishing the previous moral order, but inspire no new self-discipline in its place.
