Trouble in Lewisham

I wasn't quite sure what to make of the goings-on at Bonus Pastor as reported by James Preece. Clearly the videos featured on the linked www site were inappropriate for Catholic RE, but I always wonder who is behind these protests and how nutty they are...?

Then I discovered that at least one of those involved is Greg Clovis. Moreover that he had been accused of assault.

Now, I have met Greg (many years ago at Walsingham), and know of his work and reputation. Far from being a nutter, he is a brave, intelligent and committed Catholic and a stalwart of the pro-life movement in this country. Any suggestion that he assaulted anyone strikes me as implausible in the extreme - and that is what the police have decided too.

So have a look at the protest www site, and then, if you believe that the videos are inappropriate for a Catholic school, leave a word of support there, and drop the school and the diocese a note (all the details are on the www site).
