Be plagued y'all

So a few weeks ago, my first ever letter in the CofE newspaper got published. Exciting stuff. I was basically bemoaning the lack of choice Christians face when it came to choosing a party to support. My conclusion to that letter was "I am not one for a gloomy outlook but given the choice between Conservative and Labour, I'm inclined to agree with Shakespeare and declare: a plague on both your houses." In other words, woe unto him who says that the Conservative party is the choice for Christians!

I'd kind of forgotten about all this and then I came across this from the an pro-conservative blogger (

If David Cameron made one mistake during this election campaign, it was his decision to sideline the Christian majority. It is one thing to ‘love bomb’ the Liberal Democrats and to court the minority faiths, but quite another purposely to rile and alienate Christians. [...] he denigrates and misrepresents the Church of England; he proclaims that ‘it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around’; and he asserts that if Jesus were around today he would be supporting ‘gay rights’.

What's more today I read that the Theresa May who is the new Home Sec, has decided to abandon traditional (i.e. biblical) values and is taking a more "progressive" approach to morality (Fragile Coalition under threat from political correctness) So who says the Tories are any better than Labour or the Trendy liberals? Reminds me of something the Prophet Isaiah wrote way back then

8 For Jerusalem has stumbled,
and Judah has fallen,
because their speech and their deeds are against the Lord,
defying his glorious presence. [4]

9 For the look on their faces bears witness against them;
they proclaim their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
For they have brought evil on themselves.
