The Prostitution Reform Act was passed by a tiny majority last night. The effects of the act will be far reaching. However, the only church people I have heard speak formally were in favour of the bill. Recognising the fact that prostitution exists and cannot be prevented, the new act will provide safety and safeguards not previously available. For most suburban Christians, it's theoretical. For pastors and others in the inner cities, it's part of the life in the city itself. Who has more right to comment?
