Max Mosley has every right to run his private life in private, however sordid it may be. A prominent Anglican disagrees (my emphasis):
Lord Carey - Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002 - said free speech has been the "first major victim".
"But, as a Christian leader, I am deeply sad that public morality is the second victim of this legal judgement.
"Unspeakable and indecent behaviour, whether in public or in private, is no longer significant under this ruling."
What was that about Christian charity to sinners, especially those who have every reason to suppose that they are sinning in private? Carey, who is himself a sinner (by definition as a Christian), has some rather unusual tastes in the clothing that he and his friends adopt in public. Perhaps the News of the Screws should ask what he wears in private.
My own view is that the more the Screws is screwed -- and the rest of the cesspit that is the British media without exception -- the better public morality is served.
There is an excellent book called The Scarlet Letter. It should be read by people -- especially religious people -- who elevate their own personal prejudices into matters of public morality'.
