In the proud tradition of the bold and saintly bishops of my clan, Cardinal Keith O’Brien is responding to all the UK harassment of Christians wearing crosses with a call for all Christians to wear the cross, every day, in the form of a lapel pin or necklace or other practical garb. He notes that this serves as “a simple indication… that you value…Jesus Christ…, that you are trying to live by Christ’s standards in your daily life.” But of course, it’s also a peaceful defiance against persecution.
Time to bring out the old battlecries….
Lamh laidir an uachtar! Strength from Above!
(Or if you want to go Scottish, Deasag an uachdair!)
UPDATE: Okay, so he turned out to have done some really bad things. That doesn’t change the rightness of what he said.
