KNOW YOUR CHILD AND DISCUSS OPENLY RE ON LINE SAFETY

I hear that many parents require access to their children's smart phones, to screen and censor what they are watching and with whom they are talking. I fear that this is a dreadful invasion of their privacy and an intolerable model in encouraging their maturity. As a family, we have always spoken deeply, openly and comprehensively about every subject under the sun, when we gather, often around the regular family meals we share around the table. We have found that all of our children have a responsible, informed and enlightened approach to social media. They are savvy about its dangers, they are intelligent about protecting themselves and they are informed about its potential for good and evil. Social media companies must introduce measures that eradicate any transmission of child pornography and the access that paedophiles have to prey upon children. However the very best protection is provided by parents creating an environment where they respect their children, engage with their intelligence and talk fully and openly about life, its wonders and perils.

ARCHBISHOP JONATHAN BLAKE - MY LIFE - PART ONE


ARCHBISHOP JONATHAN BLAKE - MY LIFE - PART TWO

I AM PROUD OF MY WRITING, FOR JESUS’S SAKE, THAT HAS HAD ME FOUND INNOCENT IN HEAVEN, BUT TWICE A CRIMINAL ON THE EARTH. THE FIRST IN 1990 WHEN I WROTE A BIBLICAL TEXT ON THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT IN PEACEFUL PROTEST ABOUT THE BOMBING OF YOUNG IRAQI RECRUITS DURING THE FIRST GULF WAR. THE SECOND, IN 2016 WHEN I WROTE ON MY BLOG, TO ALERT THE PUBLIC ABOUT A PAEDOPHILE, AND WAS SUCCESSFUL IN FORCING THE AUTHORITIES TO STOP HIM HAVING ACCESS TO CHILDREN. THERE WAS ALMOST A THIRD! IN 1997, WHEN I WAS ARRESTED FOR NAILING MY PROPOSALS FOR REFORM OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ON THE DOOR OF CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL. WORDS ARE POWERFUL MESSAGES THAT CHALLENGE  CORRUPTION, CONFRONT THE WICKED AND CREATE A BETTER WORLD. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE CALLED  TO COMMUNICATE HIS WORDS,  IRRESPECTIVE OF THE COST.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man. To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression is truly an act of a pure heart."
