Whitehouse - a name to remember!
We came across a name in one of our searches that many may remember - Mary Whitehouse. It seems strange that her beliefs are so much like our writer, Landra Whitehouse. Is there a family connection, we wonder?
This is what we found:
Constance Mary Whitehouse, CBE (born Constance Mary Hutcheson, 13 June 1910 – 23 November 2001) (pictured left in 1982) was an English social activist known for her opposition to social liberalism and the mainstream British media, both of which she accused of encouraging a more permissive society. She was the founder and first president of the National Viewers' and Listeners' Association, through which she led a long standing campaign against the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). A staunch social conservative, the motivation for her activities derived from her traditional Christian beliefs and her work as a teacher of sex education.
We wonder what she would think of the Internet and what is on it if she were alive today? We feel that Landra Whitehouse is continuing in her footsteps and speaks out with equal sincerity.
