About Us

The Morality Forum was founded in 1996 by Reverend Robin Marsh. At that time Robin was ministering to a congregation in Harrow, NW London. John O'Neill was a member of that congregation. John was already working on defending moral and family values in society and had joined the National Viewers' and Listeners' Association (now Mediawatch-uk). Robin and John started working together on those key issues. One campaign involved starting a petition against an application for a licence for a lap-dancing club in Harrow. The petition received good support from the local MP, councillors and religious leaders, as well as ordinary citizens of Harrow. Eventually the licence application was withdrawn.

Since its inauguration Morality Forum activists in different parts of Britain and Ireland have been campaigning in defence of moral and family values. We have some wonderful very dedicated activists who have achieved substantial results on various levels. Our strategies include: letter writing, which can be a very powerful tool in influencing public opinion; petitions; appearing on TV programmes and speaking on radio phone-ins. We also participate in peaceful protests organised by various moral groups, who all do sterling work in defence of moral and family values. We also support and work together with the abstinence team WAIT, who have a very positive, powerful message of hope for young people-in stark contrast to the doomed "safe sex" message.

John had the idea for the Morality Forum Update, which was produced by Mr. Bryan Warner from 1996 until 2004, when unfortunately he had to stop because of ill health. Bryan did an excellent job, as did Frank and Diana Van Der Stok who took over from Bryan from 2004 to 2007. John O'Neill has been responsible for producing the Update since 2008, with Frank Van Der Stok taking care of the technical side of things including the website.
