ASA Adjudication in complaint about the Coalition For Marriage
This morning blogger Archbishop Cranmer announced that the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled on four counts against complaints that the Coalition’s press advert featuring married couples is offensive. He provides the judgement report in its entirety but questions its closing ‘No further action required’ comment.
The complaint cited his blog amongst four displays of the supposedly offensive advert, which now heads his post. As I wrote here yesterday, His Grace has been tenaciously investigating the issue from another aspect. He has now received a reply to his enquiry of the ASA and which,
His Grace finds this disingenuous, if not deceitful. Is the ASA really saying, in the 21st century, that they have no means of knowing what a document contained prior to an update? If amendments are made by means of paper forms, there will be an audit trail. If they are carried out online, there will be electronic footprints. If changes are made by email correspondence, these are easily traceable. It is, frankly, inconceivable that the ASA do not know what Lord Smith’s declarations were prior to May 2012, not least because he himself must know what changes he made. Unless, of course, they have something to hide…
The problems starting to beset ASA are hardly suprising for let’s not forget the shaking that was prophesied for this year in accordance with the following scripture.:
“Yet once more I shake not only the earth but also the heaven.” (Heb 13:26 NKJV)
To understand what the Lord means and the reason behind it see Hebrews 13:25-29 . For the prophecies see A Promise of Revival by Dr Clifford Hill and Dr Sharon Stone A Ripening Season. It is also implicit in what Nathan Morris received after New Year – see An important word for 2012 .
May the Lord reveal more to you.
