GK Chesterton A Prophet For Our Times?

While sitting at this years Chesterton Society's Conference on GK Chesterton as Prophet, I jotted down the following;

"People cannot see the Prophetic nature of GKC because they cannot accept that the wrongs he predicted are wrongs. Even the Bishop?"

Sadly there is much evil in the world today which is called normal or even good by those around us. Right and wrong will be decided by our liberal regime and not by God and a sense of absolute morals. There are many in the Church who will go with the flow or even lead the way!

I only wrote down, 'even the Bishop?', as someone had claimed, that Bishop Peter Doyle, the current Bishop of Northampton, where GKC lived and died, is not interested in the Cause for his Beatification. Bishops really need our prayers (see; A LITANY ON BEHALF OF BISHOPS), The Church really needs our prayers.

And then I saw this;

It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem. ~ GK Chesterton!
