If, during any time, I upset anyone, or have upset anyone by what I have written, I unreservedly apologise! I think I can be quite radical and, by some standards, controversial too; but in this I am only trying to be honest, rather than nice. I am not being controversial for controversy's sake, just trying to explore themes in as truthful a way as possible.
You may have noticed, if you have read a few of my posts, that I am a little obsessed with the English Class system! I make no apologies for writing about this as, for some reason, it seems to be one of the few contentious issues in English life that few people, if anyone really, will tackle, talk about or debate in any kind of genuine fashion. I don't know why this is; perhaps for some people it's too near the knuckle, and from my point of view perhaps this worldly system that creates winners and losers, people who are seen as socially acceptable and other people who are not seen as socially acceptable, is still a way of grading English people at this present time.
Coming from the background I do, I feel that as a Christian I must at times write about this painful issue for the many people who have felt they were not included or were passed over in some way because of this system. In the final analysis, whether it's class in Britain, or racism in America, or religious intolerance in some countries or even blatant sexism anywhere, we as Christians should be prepared to look honestly at the societies we live in, and also the world at large, and be prepared in our own small way to challenge such prejudice and injustice where we find it; it's as simple as that.
