Let’s say you had a product to sell. You could sell this product, if advertised correctly to potentially 60 million people in your local area.
You are aware that around 70% of the public are known to be interested in your product. You have had massive sales for a long period of time, but these days, people aren’t buying and your numbers have dropped dramatically.
Your regular buyers are now down to approximately 1 million per week. A massive advertising campaign is needed to engage with the public again, bring them back to you, and your product.
The trouble is, you still remember the glory days when sales were great, the public hung on your every word and you had influence in every corner. You make a wrong decision, sales plummet even further and the end may be near.
Sound familiar? Try the Church of England who have today said that gay marriage is the one of worst threats in 500 years and will “redefine marriage” . This is the Church of England which was created in order to allow King Henry VIII to be able to divorce one woman and marry another. Redefining marriage is what they were created for.
England has evolved, as have it’s people. There are now many races, cultures, religions and beliefs living and co-existing in England. We have atheists, Christians, Muslims, Jews. We have straight people, gay people, transgender people, bisexuals……The list goes on and on. We each have our own beliefs and opinions.
I am a straight Atheist woman. What the Church of England is saying quite frankly sickens me. Archaic bigoted thinking has no place in the 21st century. When members of your own religion, of which I have seen many today, are questioning and disputing what you say, it is time to re-evaluate and change, or suffer the consequences.
