Why we should no longer be cowed by the chattering classes who sneer at Christianity

A.N. Wilson issues a challenge to Christians to be Christians, boldly.  Here is his Easter article, and here is an excerpt:

“For ten or 15 of my middle years, I, too, was one of the mockers. But, as time passed, I found myself going back to church, although at first only as a fellow traveller with the believers, not as one who shared the faith that Jesus had truly risen from the grave. Some time over the past five or six years – I could not tell you exactly when – I found that I had changed.

When I took part in the procession last Sunday and heard the Gospel being chanted, I assented to it with complete simplicity.

My own return to faith has surprised no one more than myself. Why did I return to it? Partially, perhaps it is no more than the confidence I have gained with age.

Rather than being cowed by them, I relish the notion that, by asserting a belief in the risen Christ, I am defying all the liberal clever-clogs on the block: cutting-edge novelists such as Martin Amis; foul-mouthed, self-satisfied TV presenters such as Jonathan Ross and Jo Brand; and the smug, tieless architects of so much television output.”

    "the smug, tieless architects of so much television output."

    I find that point hitting a not so subtle truth by looking at some of the links on the right side of the page with his article on it.

      The British have a unique knack for the cutting barb, don't they?

    That they do. In fact, I've learned all my best words from them…
