His Grace responds

Further to my recent post, His Grace has now posted a fuller response to the ludicrous interference of the Advertising Standards Agency in his right to free expression.

Given that the allegedly 'offending' advertisement is in favour of the (current) law of the land, it would be quite extraordinary were this to be pursued any further.  But that doesn't mean it won't be.  In these days of austerity, there is still plenty of resource behind various branches of the unofficial thought-police whose job it is to make sure we think the way our political and social masters think we should think.

It is perhaps comforting to realise that the only real impact of the ASA's intervention - apart from causing undue stress on Cranmer, which is of course lamentable - has been to get the advertisement spread all over the web, by those like me who take an I am Spartacus approach to such bullying.  Stuart at eChurch blog carries a list of many such sites, though it is not comprehensive, and there are more being added daily.
