RE Class Descends into Cannibalism

ROYFIELD, England – A Religious Education class at Patrick High-School, north of London, has begun frog worship and spear warfare. There has also been rumours of cannibalism at the school, something loal police are looking into. The unusual behaviour appears to have grown from the curriculum of one RE teacher who began teaching British Values – minus the Christian influence.

‘We should not force Christian ideas down the throats of those who come from homes of different faiths or no faith at all.’ Noted the RE teacher Brigitte Doodlesmith. ‘In order to teach an uncompromised British Values class, I had to look back to what British values were like before Christianity came to these Islands. As an ideology, Christianity really is a foreign way of thinking.’

When asked about encouraging the students to spear fight in the nude she quickly responded, ‘That’s a gross exaggeration. We are historically British about this - they wear body paint.’

When I pointed out the lack of text books Doodlesmith noted, ‘One of the things that Christianity imposed on us was literacy. Anglo-Saxon culture traditionally had little place for books. In our efforts to be truly British, this year we’ll be taking exams with finger paint.’

When asked if she was anti-Christian she spoke moderately, ‘Oh no. Christianity is fine for other cultures – it’s just not historically British. Christianity grew up in the Middle East – Jesus was certainly never meant to be a white man’s god. He’s culturally foreign to Western society as a whole.’

During the interview, Doodlesmith received word that a boy had been injured during a session of Anglo-Saxon tribal combat. ‘Aren’t you going to take him to the hospital?’ I asked.

‘No. It was Christians who really spread the use of hospitals here. Fortunately we have some 6th formers who a focusing on ancient Wiccan healing spells.’ Doodlesmith then added ‘He’ll need to recover and take vengeance. Anglo-Saxon culture was traditionally an honour bound society. This whole ‘Forgive your enemy’ stuff has no place in a Britain that has cleansed itself from this warped, Eastern ideology.’

Asked about the police and the cannibal rumours she replied, ‘We don’t go out of our way to encourage that sort of behaviour. But it is true that the Druids used to eat people’s brains in an attempt to grow in knowledge. We are telling our brighter students to take care – just as a precaution. We trust the officers will find nothing objectionable.'

The police were unavailable for comment.

Where I Turn Down a Gay 'Wedding' Invitation

Dear Katie,
I hope this letter finds you well. You’ve been on my mind lately as it’s been a few weeks since we’ve met up. We’re overdue to grab a coffee – I hope we can soon. I also want to thank you for thinking of me as you sent out invitations for what I know will be a big day for you and Joanna. I’ve known you since before you met her (two years ago now, is it?) and I appreciate all you’ve shared with me about how meaningful that relationship is to you. It was especially kind of you given my Christian faith. You've never directly asked me my views on gender or sex in much detail. But I think our conversations must have touched on it enough times to at least make you a bit unsure of my reaction when you sent the invitation. I have to say 'no' to your kind invitation. You know that I care for you and that I value our friendship. You know I don't reject you because you are gay. So, would it be too much to ask of you if I explain why my faith would make attendance at your…

Dear Pro-Gay Christian Friend

[Response to the letter Dear Non-Affirming Christian]
Dear Pro-Gay Christian Friend,
Thank you for taking the time to write me. Sadly, it seems you misunderstand why I met with you for coffee. Please let me explain my motives by defining the words in my salutation above. Would this be too terrible a way to go about it?
Let’s start with ‘friend’ shall we? You rightly question this term as an accurate description of our relationship. For now, let's simply say I mean it as an expression of good will - but will return to it again at the end of the letter. Then there's this term, 'pro-gay'. By this, I don't mean your personal sexual urges. There have historically been – and are today – countless godly leaders in the church who have deep sexual and romantic attractions to people of the same gender. In spite of their desires, they remain celibate and teach orthodox views of gender and sexuality. In your letter, you repeatedly refer to me as a ‘non-affirming Christian’, but I …

Holy Halloween?

The big ugly debate is upon us.
No, not the Presidential one. This debate involves dwarves and banshees of quite another variety.
As heated as the political scene may now be, it will pale to fervor with which Christians will begin debating if and how they will celebrate what is now commonly called "Halloween". This battle of ideas will be waged from the beaches of church pews to the hills of Facebook. There will be shots fired and people unfriended.
But what cyber surfing culture warrior would be complete without some historical trivia and theological sanity? Here you go...

The Background Story
The devil would love to steal All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) away from Christians. He is making good progress at it too.
All Hallow’s Eve is neither American nor pagan in heritage. The name should be obvious enough. Hallow means ‘holy’ (‘Hallowed be thy name’) and it marks a three-day celebration of the victory of Jesus over the powers of darkness as experienced by departed saints and Christi…
