Dreamin’

Daryll Kerrigan needs to have a chat with the Church of England:

The Church of England may withdraw the millions it has invested in internet companies unless they take action to curb internet pornography.

Senior officials are conducting a wide-ranging review of the Church’s holdings in Internet Service Providers (ISPs), which are worth tens of millions.

A Church spokesman told The Daily Telegraph that its Ethical Investment Advisory Group (EIAG) was considering new guidelines on pornography, which address the ease in which hardcore sexual images can be viewed through modern media.

The review, which is expected to be concluded in the coming months, will recommend how part of the Church’s £5.3 billion portfolio should be invested in relation to internet companies.

The Church refuses to invest in firms that fuel problems against which Christians campaign.

According to Church documents, the criteria for investing in media companies is that they have a “positive influence on society by educating, entertaining and uplifting individual experience”.

It says that companies should be avoided whose “major part” of their business is “engaged in the production, transmission, publication or distribution of pornography”.

It warns that some companies can “equally” be prurient, invasive and promote lifestyles inconsistent with the Christian message.

It is attitudes like this that really tick me off. They are just putting their fingers in their ears and shouting lalalalalala. Their action won’t make a blind bit of difference.

Instead of putting up walls and fencing off the Anglican Church they should be seeking out sinners. People who are already saved don’t need saving more. It is sinners that need saving and where better to find them?

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
