I'm not a religious chappie, but I do enjoy Britain's Archbishop Cranmer.
Now, Cranmer has just written a brilliant post entitled 'Labour's Moral Wilderness.'
Cranmer looks at ZanuLiarbore's philosophical and moral wilderness, and a UK government that is "festering on its own incompetence, sleaze and greed."
Now, as if this sounds like Helengrad, there's more:
"It has become a multifarious hydra which undermines marriage whilst dishing out tax credits to support families; it demeans the faithful majority while deifying the equality of all minorities; and it has trivialised the purpose of Parliament to the point of political prostration."
Oh yes! That's Helengrad all right.
Cranmer notes UK Liarbour's former Methodist Christian heritage, which gave it authenticity, conviction, principals and morals; values now lost.
"But in the naked pursuit of power, Labour has abandoned all that was true, noble and good and supplanted it with duplicity, avarice and the stench of sleaze.
Its principles have been shredded, and its sense of Christian morality pulped and recycled as an idol to every god in the firmament but the One who is known.
It has become the party of war, the party of torture, the party of exploitation and the party of deceit. It rewards the thieves and fraudsters with ‘rights’ while penalising the law-abiding and responsible
Well, take out the Iraqi reference to torture, how familiar does this feel to us Kiwis?
And there's more:
Labour has ceased to be civilised, for it has no clear vision of the meaning of this civility. It is no longer good, for it has lost sight of the common good.
This recession may be global, but it is Labour’s fault that the United Kingdom is the worst place nation in the western world to cope with its effects.
Labour has become the embodiment of that for which it always despised the Conservatives: it is now the undoubted party of unemployment, recession, inflation and increased poverty. Labour is seduced by celebrity and beguiled by vanity.
Think how Cullenomics brought us a home made recession, so we suffered before other countries. Think of Uncle Helen's cultivation of the cultural sector.
This is an undoubted moral issue, for firms are condemned to closure, people are reduced to hardship and depression, more workers to unemployment and more families to homelessness through unprecedented levels of repossession. The total number of suicides, heart attacks, divorces and mental breakdowns is never known.
Labour has become the party of widening inequality and social disintegration.
Cranmer exhorts all who are moral, all who are compassionate, all who are discerning and visionary, all who care about the Christian foundations of this nation – it’s civil liberties, religious tolerance, respect for life and the rule of law – to abandon Labour, for its heart is corrupt, its flesh is rotten.
Labour has ceased to understand the moral values of the Labour movement: Labour has ceased to be Christian.
Of course, there will be those that don't associate Christianity with morality.
But either way, didn't the Helengrad regime lose its moral compass?
Think of all those government scandals, how it was never in the public interest to prosecute Liarbour MPs, how Helen Clark was so bitter towards her opponents like Don Brash and John Key, think how she used trust as her election theme, but she was shown to be most untrustworthy, dishonest and her campaign, the most muckraking.
Think of Liarbour's dirty deeds, the Electoral Finance Act, its nannying, banning and political correctness, its underming of traditional family values.
And look how some politicial commentators note that this year Liarbour has shown no contrition over its electoral defeat.
So read the feature in full and consider what else could apply to NZ Liarbour.
Certainly I am sure Liarbour lost its way under Uncle Helen; it is in a moral wilderness, and it will take them far longer than 40 days and nights to find that out and work it out!
Indeed, let us all banish NZ Liarbour into the wilderness for many, many years longer!
For Uncle Helen also leaves a legacy of a party whose "heart is corrupt, its flesh is rotten."
Hat tip: Archbishop Cranmer.
