Still with the Co-op

Today someone who the media increasingly portrays as spokesperson for Christians throughout the UK called on Christians to stop banking with the Co-operative Bank.

I'm a Christian. I bank with the Co-op. Neither of those are about to change.

I'm not going to link to the individual's website because he doesn't need any more coverage. If you stumble across it, put it to this simple test: is everything the site publishes based on a Christian view? Every press release carries a direct quotation from the one person (are there any other members?). The topics tackled are arbitrary and diverse. (Motoring legislation? Since when is that a 'prophetic Biblical issue'?)

To my mind it adds up to a single individual desperate to have his personal views heard. Sadly the press are only too happy to oblige.
