The war on Christmas
This is the time when we get media stories about a war on Christmas. Normally it is absolute rubbish peddled by those who wish to set faith comunities against each other.
However this story concerning Father Christmas visit to children incarcerated at Yarls Wood is a rejection of the inclusive nature of the Christmas story of God's taking flesh as a sign of divine love for all.
So the home Office are the first this year to spit in the face of Christmas. Sometimes this country fills me with shame!
