This is terrific stuff! It’s not very long. I’d have loved to have heard the whole talk. In his inimitable style, Boris defended Christians’ involvement in street evangelism. Here are some of the things he said.
‘Faith groups who want to slip in the odd coded message in favour of salvation, I have absolutely no problem with that and why not!’
‘That’s one of the things that I think has been going wrong in the last few years. We have got a slightly politically correct super-sensitivity to anything that can be remotely classed as religious advocacy. And frankly I’ve got no difficulty with it whatsoever’.
Last week he was hailed as a hero for defending a woman from a group of young adults.
‘I was doing nothing other than what you do, what the Street Pastors do, every night in the streets of London. People with the courage and the sense of public spirit to intervene with kids, on our streets, who may be about to do something stupid or possibly something fatal’.
He’s not perfect but he’s such good value.
