What is the point of the Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury? When one of his clergy, school chaplain Bernard Randall, is severely mistreated simply for stating the Christian position in a reasoned and tolerant way, the most powerful and important figure in the Church of England has no comment to make.

No comment? It is strange enough that the Archbishop is on sabbatical leave – surely, having attained such a great and honoured position, most people would wish to exercise it to the full for every minute that was granted to them. It was striking that he also found time to respond to the Black Lives Matter campaign by announcing a review into the acceptability of hundreds of monuments and statues in Anglican churches, hardly a major preoccupation of most churchgoers.

But his mumbled evasion of an important Christian issue illustrates a greater problem with this country as a whole. A sweeping cultural revolution has taken possession of all the commanding heights of society, slowly, stealthily and without in any way seeking or wanting the approval of the great majority of the people.

Those in positions of authority either actively support it or are unwilling to stand up against it. And so it grows, to such an extent that a conductor on a railway train has been publicly disowned by his employers for calling passengers ‘ladies and gentlemen’, words which apparently offended a non-binary passenger.
