April challenge 30 days, 30 poems. Day 13.

April, 30 days and 30 poems.

Thoughts regarding Easter programming on Television coverage – minimal.

Day 13.   Are we a secular country?

This year on the television,

there has been little mention or, 

no programme that I have seen

of the religious events

leading up to Easter.

Although, I am no longer 

a believer, I still have interest

in the history of Christianity.

In times past, much was 

made of the period of Lent.

In the English establishment’s

wish to accommodate other

religious groups, we seem

to have lost our own.

Why don’t Christians stand

up and shout for their rights?

Why are the prepared to

let the ‘new cathedral’s of

out of town’s Shopping Malls,

with their ringing tills overtake

the ringing of Church bells.

Have so many people rocked

and shocked by the Church’s

scandals and voted with their

feet, or is it just general apathy?
