Yesterday's vote in the House of Commons in support of Same-sex "marriage" has come upon us so suddenly that it has taken most of us by surprise. What strikes me most is the power within the contemporary anti-theist movement; it is like a tidal wave, an image which St Augustine used to describe paganism.
Paganism, when unleashed, has a power in it which seems almost unstoppable - a massive movement of self-seeking from deep within humanity. We live in the aftermath of such a tidal wave - the World Wars of the last century. No one now knows how the force within this present wave will wear itself out. What we do know is that Christ's victory is complete, it is present, it is unassailable.
