No 'Church revival' unless Church demonstrates the Bible is not 'prudish' - claims 'theology of the body' expert
THERE will be no Revival in the Church in the World without the renewal of Marriage and family life, and until the Church can demonstrate that the Bible’s view of sexuality is not prudish, but is a liberating invitation to respond to the desires of our hearts”. So says Christopher West, the world’s leading authority on Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body’, who is to lecture at a three day Conference in London next week.

Costs Demand from TFL against CIT
Transport for London (TFL) lawyers have asked the Enforcements of Judgements Office in Belfast to issue a Custody Warrent against all goods of Core Issues Trust. The warrent requires payment of £8870.87 despite the fact that cases between 2013-2015 indicated proceedural flaws in TFL's dealings with CIT, and that Mayor Boris Johnson had been dishonest in disclaiming his role in the banning of our 2012 advertisment. The warrant, designed to silence the work and witness of the Trust, remains inplace until payment of this amount has been made. All events, projects and operations of CIT remain functional. Current balance = £5,437.25. Thank you for your generosity! The full £8870.87 demand must be paid by 22nd February, 2016.

Parliamentary Debate on ‘Stamping Out’ Gay Cure (sic) Therapies in the UK
Please be advised that we are unaware of any informal or professional psychotherapeutic or counselling practitioner in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Europe or the USA practising ‘gay cure’ as articulated by Minister Morgan as including ‘electro-shock’ and/or ‘aversion’ (nauseous drug) therapies. Where these exist we support such a ban. However, client rights to informed consent and self-determination deserve protection and respect.
