If you wish to glorify immoral acts.... today's Guardian.

I know that many teachers regard The Grauniad as the epitome of good quality journalism but it has never done it for me.

And now, seeing today's copies in the newsagent's, I dislike it even more, you see, it has gone homosexual!

The Guardian has published a special Saturday "Gay Supplement" - Ugh!

Actually, not this edition, even though it has a "Fairy Tales" supplement


  1. The Guardian's prevailing ideology refuses to recognise the existence of the Moral Law. It is a supporter/propaganda machine for the dictatorship of immorality.

  2. Richard: I don't seem to have received your FB friend request. Are you sure you sent it to the right Christine Niles?

  3. Christine, no, I am not sure. Help!!!!

    Lynda - agreed.

  4. Now, now, Richard, don't stereotype teachers. I am a Catholic convert (1966). I did my time in Viet-Nam and was voting Republican long before certain conservative American keyboard commandos did their first illegal drugs. I never miss an election, I set real authors before my students, and, like Tolkien, Lewis, and Belloc, I enjoy an occasional beer and my pipe. I'm retired now, teaching part-time in a community college, but I hope and believe I have been a good role model for my students both in Catholic school and in public school.

  6. Dear Richard & Co:

    Happy St. George's Day!

    Ever England

    …England, that was wont to conquer others,
    Hath made a shameful conquest of itself

    - Richard II.II.i.65-66

    Brave Hurricanes and Spits still claw and climb
    Far up into the English summer sky
    At the lingering end of a golden time
    As wild young lads and aging empires die

    The Hood and Rodney still the Channel guard
    Against the strident Men of Destiny
    Then shellfire falls; the helm is over hard
    But the brave old ships keep the Narrow Sea

    Dear Grandpa and the boys sport thin tin hats
    In Sunday afternoon’s invasion drill
    Gram says he’s too damned old for all of that
    But she too smells the smoke of Abbeville

    Faith does not pass with ephemeral time:
    Brave Hurricanes and Spits still claw and climb.
