While progressive morality – the bending of what is acceptable (and legal!) to suit the times – sounds appealing, Christmas reminds us of a great and unchanging truth; that at a single point in our history a man, with a revolutionary claim to being the son of God, came to down to Earth to proclaim freedom.
