Adams wrong for programme

In light of Channel Four's decision to allow Gerry Adams to present a programme about Jesus Christ, can it be said that we, as a society, have reached the bottom of the applecart?

Jesus said that his message was 'a sword' in telling us that he did 'not come to bring peace but a sword' (Mt 10:34).

His sword is, therefore, designed to bring about a just and peaceful world where love is the currency, not hate.

All Gerry Adams's 'sword' can achieve is cultural domination and supremacy in the long term.

There has been no repentance from the republican movement for their past actions and, therefore, it is wrong that Gerry Adams should be asked to front a programme about Jesus.

By refusing to repent, he is, in effect, mocking Christ.
