Is the current spiritual condition of the UK a result of this judgement that your article speaks of?
Rom 1: 18 - 20 "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."

"Civil servants in Scotland can no longer use the word “homosexual” because it is deemed offensive to gay men, according to new guidance from the Scottish Government."
The above article by the CI shows clearly which direction this country is now taking. My question - is this a direct assault on the bible's (God's clear inerrant word to humanity) definition?

Peter, yes it is. It's also another spirit at work.
However we style it, sin is sin and sinners are sinners. No amount of, ah! bless, let's call it something else and ignore the effects of that sin, will ever make it right with God.
In my understanding, God's Word is settled in Heaven, eternally binding on man. To go against it deliberately is the same as the fool saying in his heart, no, to God!
The church's lack of clear moral guidance and teaching on sin, as well as the Godless media, has left this people numbed to what is, and is not, sin before a Holy God. Therefore, such an attack, above, is not seen as such, but rather as a loosening of religious bonds and freeing the mind.
So, yes, but it's just another assault on God's Word, one of so many.

I believe to some degree that you are right, however in Jn 16: 7 - 11 Jesus tells of The Holy Spirit coming to convict and convince people of their sin. To what degree is it possible that God has removed His Spirit in this respect in relation to what we read in Rom 1: 18ff?
