Debating Christian Values at Oxford

Last Thursday evening I debated at the Oxford Union alongside the Bishop of Winchester and Jonathan Aitken. At a well attended debate we won by ten votes, 145 to 135, proposing the motion “This House believes that Britain needs a return of Christian Values”.

Everything conceivable was thrown at us, even the slave trade. It was interesting that we didn’t talk about homosexuality, but our opponents were adamant that Christians are obsessed by it.

I just concentrated on the teachings of Christ; a better guide than the life of most Christians since!
