If racism is the unjust and biased treatment of a minority primarily
based on race, there is more than a tinge of racism not only in Oliver
Letwin's deracinated, crass and overgeneralised comments in 1985,
but also in contemporary
of protest against them.
Why should any part of society be spared the just and holy exposure of
its moral defects and degeneracy, whatever the skin colour? Do we not
all need at times reproof?
To pretend that sometimes whites, and sometimes blacks, and
sometimes other races do not excel in certain types of sins,
and to stifle prophetic censure, if the statistics and crime figures
prove otherwise, is itself a product of racial prejudice of
another kind, shows a severe lack of compassion (Lev.19.17),
infantilises and dehumanises the community it seeks to 'protect' and
the crowning depravity which actuates and directs this prejudice is a
thoroughly shameful deficit of trust in God's wonderful and active
power to transform each race into the portraits of His image in
Jonah reproved and won the Ninevites, Jeremiah the Gentile nations,
Paul the Cretans, at the same time, in each case as reserving the
strongest reproofs of all for their own kin. If Letwin had beem
motivated by more compassion and less ambition, his words would have
been better honed to diagnose and direct the healing of the maladies

communities, and the canker of drugs, vice and debauched revelling has

under the guise of tackling radical Islam and imposing a sterile
educational homogeneity of
deracinated and ahistorical 'British values', which are neither
nor values. By all means tackle radical Islam, but let good
education be judged by its results, some our best thinkers and
reformers were home schooled and tutored.
Ofsted gets rough on informal home school associations and invokes the
law against them. We do not advocate breaking the law, but some
Christian and Jewish home schoolers pool resources and informally
expertise in joint day sessions and these too may now be targetted by
overzealous inspectors of the kind we have already seen interrogating
children about their expertise in lesbianism and other perverse
also consulting about dubious plans which may
impact other non school Christian groups for children, Sunday
and perhaps youth gatherings - all eerily familiar from pre-Glasnost
Soviet days for the unregistered Baptists. Is that really the

Is Turkey complicit in the attacks on the HDP peace march?
Deep state involvement in the

The opposition leaders thinks so, and the Turkish police in the

Some of his followers in IS are convinced they can justify these
