Letter to The Editor - The failure of the Christian churches to bring their theology up to date
To The Australian Barry Maley is right ("Germany's new leader to march across the map", 24/9). Failure to achieve Brexit will mean "the abandonment of 1,000 years of glorious history and liberty” for the British people and it will have happened as a result of massive deceit and coercion practised against their "quiet citizens" who value a traditional communal life based on "fellow feeling, fair dealing and honesty." Maley seems surprised that so many Remain partisans are unaware of the authoritarian overlordship being prepared by the EU leadership. Perhaps their blindness has been caused by a widespread falling into the worship of "false gods" such as climate change crusades and egalitarian policies. This in turn has occurred because of the largely hidden manipulative power of big money in few hands, together with the failure of the Christian churches to bring their theology up to date and thus be able to put up a proper fight.
