Of course, the usual politically correct Catholic bureaucrat was ready to leap to her condemnation: "Sarah Teather, Country Director of the Jesuit Refugee Service and former Liberal Democrat MP, shared the Prime Minister’s statement on Facebook and wrote: “While on a trip to promote arms sales to a country [Saudi Arabia] that engages in torture, Theresa May criticises the National Trust’s Easter egg hunt for dropping references to Christianity. What a disincarnate vision of the faith she seems to have: all about English tradition and labels, but no respect for human lives.”
The business of a head of state is to deal with foreign governments, including less-than-savoury foreign governments. Besides, if the Prime Minister hadn't been in Saudi Arabia, they would have complained about something else to deflect attention.
And a Roman Catholic MP, Conor McGinn, also complained about it, tweeting that "Jesus wouldn't care". It's amazing how these liberal Catholics have a hotline to Jesus himself.
It's not a trivial matter. Or rather, it would be a trivial matter if it wasn't a constant drip-drip-drip of secularisation and denial of the Christian nature of Christian festivals and heritage.
It reminds me that I've been irritated every morning for at least two weeks now about a billboard advertisement for a brand of rum which refers to a "four day weekend" on the horizon-- as though Holy Week was an opportunity for a booze-up. I meant to send them a complaint. This has reminded me.
