SOR Rally on Tuesday

I received this by email. Unfortunately, I can't be there myself because of our opening Confirmation class in the parish. If you are working in London and can get there, I do recommend it.
PLEASE JOIN US outside Parliament for a torch-lit rally on Tuesday, January 9th, from 5.30-8.00pm. This protest rally is set to coincide with a crucial debate on the Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) which will take place in the House of Lords at around 7:30pm. We will be meeting in Old Palace Yard, opposite the St Stephen's (Peers') entrance. Please bring a torch. The Northern Ireland SORs which are being debated in the House of Lords can only be annulled by Parliament within the next month. This is therefore probably the only opportunity to demonstrate publicly the strength of Christian feeling about the Northern Ireland SORs, at the same time challenging the Government to think again about the drafting of the Regulations for England, Wales and Scotland. That drafting is happening now. Please encourage all Christians to attend this important event. There has already been significant media coverage of the rally. Page 2 of the Daily Telegraph (2nd Jan 2007) carried an article. The Daily Mail also featured the petition and forthcoming demonstration on page 29 of its 2nd January edition. If the Sexual Orientation Regulations go through, it might well be illegal for us to hold any similar rally in the future …
