Palm Sunday - a chance to make your voice heard

This Sunday 24rd March, will see the rally in Trafalgar Square to oppose the Coalition's plans to legalize so called "marriage" between people of the same sex.

I had planned to go but have been thwarted, unavoidably.

If you are able to attend it will send an almighty message to our Dear Leader and his bunch of associates.

It starts at 2pm and finishes at 5pm - this is a wonderful chance to proclaim the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman.

After all, if David Cameron gets his wicked way, we could all end up in the same boat as this clip shows:-

And a message from the organisers:

Dear Friends,
This is your time... your time to make the political establishment, the media elites and the small, well-orchestrated band of activists pushing their radical same-sex marriage agenda on the country step back and take notice.
This is your chance ... your  chance  to send the message more loudly and more clearly than ever before — that the British  people will stand up and defend marriage as the union of one man and one woman because they know that children have a right to a mother and a father.
This is your freedom  ... your freedom   to bring the broadest coalition of marriage supporters to the table — Protestants, Mormons, Jews, Roman Catholics, Greek and Russian Orthodox, Muslims, Hindus and those of no religious tradition — Christian advocacy organizations, women’s groups, those groups fighting for justice, news groups and educational institutions — all coming together for one single purpose:
To preserve marriage as the union of one man and one woman!
Be a part of this growing grassroots coalition to support this historic Rally for Marriage. Use the freedoms of conscience and speech for which our forebears spent their very lives so that we might live righteous lives in peace.  Use them or lose them!
No doubt many Christians, quite rightly, are constrained by duties at their local churches and I would not wish to take them away from that, but some might also feel that Christians should not be involved in worldly affairs on the Lord’s day. If that were the case, should we shut down all emergency services? Did not Christ heal on the Sabbath?
Some might feel that we should not be joining hands with the unsaved, least of all with those who adhere to a faith that we deem to be anathema; but did not the good Samaritan come to the rescue of a Jew, whilst the Pharisees passed by on the other side of the road?  
Finally, “making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil,” this might indeed be the opportunity to speak to just one person about the Cross of Jesus Christ and His saving grace.
Please support the Rally for Marriage which has been organised by a French group, La Manif Pour Tous. They support traditional marriage and have organised a march at the same time, in Paris. The American people are also organising a march for marriage, two days later on the 26th March. So join us in making this a truly international push back against those forces that are determined to destroy our marriages, families, children and the nation.  If you wish to attend, here is when and where to meet:
Trafalgar Square, London
2pm-5pm Sunday 24 March

  1. We live in a free society, with an option of secular marriage which obeys none of the norms of Christan marriage. How is it reasonable to deny to the Quakers the right to marry same-sex couples, simply because we Cathics wouldn't countenance it?

  2. Sorry 'Frederick Oakley',but you seem to be a million miles away from reality. The march is an opportunity to express opposition to the concept of same-sex marriage,an opposition based on religious grounds and on natural law, also on societal tradition from time immemorial. The fact that the Quaker 'church' has stated that it would be willing to marry same-sex couples, has no bearing whatsoever on the evil perversity of this proposed legislation. Logically, your suggestion would mean total acceptance by the Catholic Church of such evil practices as abortion, because it is a so-called 'free society'! Sorry Frederick, but your thinking is rather skewed, and if I may say so, strangely un-Catholic.

  3. Well said Umblepie and thanks Brian.

  4. Sorry to highjack your comments but ...

  6. Very glad to read this. Many thanks.

    And many thanks too for the Elton Hayes song. Nice to be reminded of how charming a man Hayes was. I remember him fondly for his delightful performance as Alan-a-Dale in the 1952 Disney ROBIN HOOD.
