Christina Odone silenced for pointing out persecution of Christians

Update: Christina Odone writes about it herself here. She argues that intolerance towards Christians could easily become intolerance towards other groups. How long before the hatred of religion shown by the British political elite is extended, as logic demands, towards Judaism and Islam?

(29/11/07): complaints to the Director General of the Royal Commonwealth Society, Stuart Mole, please:

Comment: the supreme irony: an invitation to Christina Odone to speak at a 'carol service' in a 'political and controversial' way was withdrawn when it emerged she planned to talk about the way Chritians are silenced in the UK.

See the news report here; hat-tip to Damian Thompson.

I am just appalled that a Christian statement should be suppressed in a Christian church because it might offend those of little or no faith. Can anything more clearly justify the statement Cristina wished to make?

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
