With sad predictability, the latest attempts to smear Peter Tatchell began before his documentary on the pope had been broadcast. But those Christians who attack him with questionable allegations need to answer the very real questions that he asks.
My colleague and friend Jonathan Bartley, who was due to speak and perform at the Greenbelt festival tomorrow (Monday 30 August 2010), has very regretfully had to pull out of the festival due to his son's serious illness.
The programme of the Greenbelt Christian festival this weekend declares that disagreement is “essential to discovery”. This is an inspiring sentiment to hear in Christian circles, all the more so when it appears to be said with sincerity.
Greenbelt 2010 (http://www.greenbelt.org.uk/festival/), backed by global development agency Christian Aid and a range of other organisations, is expected to attract some 21,000 people from 27-30 August at Cheltenham Racecourse.
