I’m a Christian, conservative (small ‘c’) non-conformist. What’s not to like about me?! Well, everything if you’re a “liberal”, “progressive”, apparatchik. Apparently my views are so dangerous they even present a safeguarding risk to children. I need to be silenced.
I had prepared a beautifully crafted post about some of the middle-England, middle-class mini-maelstroms I’ve found myself at the centre of in the past couple of years. But rather than use my minor skirmishes to explain my solidarity with today’s “Day for Freedom” event, here is one of free speech’s “special forces”. He is usually on the front-lines of the battle – or even behind the enemy lines. Here he explains why he’ll attending and “spreading the gospel of free speech, as one of the under-girding principles of our civilisation“. I’m happy to be a missionary.
