OK, I’m not really a bigot. But I am from Belfast. For now, I’d like to remain anonymous, although I may add additional details as time goes on.
I am a socially conservative Christian, of an old-earth persuasion. Actually, maybe that does make me a bigot. Quick, call the Equality Commission before someone gets unequalled!
I grew up in Belfast nominally Catholic, and didn’t give a second thought about religion or ethics until I was about 18 when I suddenly bumped into reality; how can something come from nothing? It can’t. How can you account for the existence of a moral law without some sort of lawgiver? Again, you can’t.
A few years later, I discovered the writings of C.S Lewis and that’s when I began to take Christianity seriously. It turns out that Christianity is both existentially fulfilling and intellectually satisfying. Who’d have thunk it?
My hope is, that this blog will add a moderate and evenhanded (and unashamedly bigoted) voice into the mix of ideas currently doing the rounds in our increasingly secular society.
Thanks for reading!
