Simon Richards, CEO of The Freedom Association (2016)

“Written with style, intelligence, wit and, yes, sometimes with justifiable indignation, the Archbishop Cranmer blog is a model of all that a good blog should be… spread(s) knowledge, wisdom and truth.”

 

Full quote (from Freedom – The Journal of The Freedom Association, Spring 2016):

“I was fortunate enough to attend a memorable dinner at Lambeth Palace on March 21st, the 460th anniversary of the martyrdom of Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. It was also the tenth anniversary of the Archbishop Cranmer blog. If you are not already familiar with it, I cannot recommend it too highly. It is a remarkable achievement on the part of its author, Dr Adrian Hilton. Written with style, intelligence, wit and, yes, sometimes with justifiable indignation, the Archbishop Cranmer blog is a model of all that a good blog should be. Adrian, a Council Member of The Freedom Association, deserves high praise for his achievement.

“Some people are all too ready to condemn the internet because it is a vehicle for hatred, pornography and lies, but, at its best it can also, as the Archbishop Cranmer blog does, spread knowledge, wisdom and truth. The invention of the printing press helped Shakespeare to become a worldwide phenomenon, but it also spread the hatred that Hitler propagated in Mein Kampf. We should just be grateful that, alongside the horrors of the internet, there is also so much that is good, such as the Archbishop Cranmer blog.”
