The Wolves are Licking their Chops

Mrs Iris Robinson of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (led by Ian Paisley) told the House of Commons in the HFE bill debate:

I make no apology for speaking as a born-again Christian. I
represent the voice of those who look to a higher authority—one to whom we will
all one day answer for the decisions that we make in the House. Each one of us
is an individual of amazing worth. I approach the Bill through the central fact
that we are all created in the image of God. Much science will be discussed and
debated, but I want to remind us all that we need to consider the case fully—both
biologically, through the logical argument of our God-given minds, and with
respect to the mind of God.

Too often the House and this country have suffered from woolly liberal thinking.
Unless we stand firm on certain matters, the United Kingdom will become utterly
morally bankrupt. As Members of the House, we should not be engaged in bringing
society to its lowest common denominator. Instead, we should seek to raise
standards across society.

Father Tim notes that no one interrupted or heckled her, but neither did anyone refer to the speech afterwards. I suppose that these people are at a stage at which the blinding light of truth and clear thinking leaves them in stunned silence. Or perhaps they are so far gone that their minds simply blocked it out since they could not process the information.

If you haven't written to your MP about this, please do so immediately after reading the relevant material here.
