Gerry Adams' contribution to the Channel 4 documentary, The Bible: A History, revealed the Sinn Fein leader's moral vacuity, argues Owen Polley.
Vancouver 2010 has attracted widespread criticism, however, on Sunday evening, the BBC broadcast the most entertaining Winter Olympics event to date. Ski-cross features four downhill skiers, all hurtling down a snowboard track at break-neck speed simultaneously.
They perform death-defying leaps over yawning chasms, execute hair-raising manoeuvres in order to overtake their opponents and the inevitable tangled skis cause all manner of spectacular crashes.
It was only the second most hair-raising spectacle on TV that night. The moral contortions which Gerry Adams accomplished on Channel 4's The Bible: A History were performed so brazenly that they made the viewer's jaw drop more readily than any ski-cross champion.
You will not get any moral ground with Paisley, neither, nor McCrea, living off the back of tax payers, claiming every penny that they can, even down to the most expensive items because they do not have to pay for them. Check 'Protestantissues.com,' for further information.
Owen Polley writes: βThe Sinn Fein president's meditations on 'the Jesus story' proved predictably contentious. Adams relied on a noxious blend of moral relativism and abstraction in order to develop his 'gospel' of the Troubles. Its implication is that killers in Northern Ireland are no more culpable than their victims. We each carry a shared responsibility for creating a society in which violence became inevitable.β *******
This is one excellent piece of editorial journalism. Gerry Adam's twisted version of the Gospel of our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ, whereby he attempts to justify the acts of terrorism he and others of his ilk perpetrated on the population of N.I. to suit and advance his personal and political agenda by βwresting the Scripturesβ is reprehensible and despicable.
Gerry Adams has blasphemed both the name and doctrine of Christ and all those who know and love the LORD must stand in solidarity with Mr. Polley in denouncing this Christ-dishonouring programme, one for which Mr. Adams received a sizeable sum!
