Britain a “Christian Country”, I don’t think so!

David Cameron is a religious mentalist.

Is Cameron trying to model himself on Obama and make out that like the United States, we are guided by God?

I for one have absolutely no interest or belief in religion, I think its outdated and not relevant. There is too much suffering in the world to think otherwise and to believe that such a jealous and flawed being is looking down on it all is hard to stomach.

Keep your religious views to yourself and don’t impose them on anybody else.

Have a look at the following letter sent to the Telegraph and check out who has signed it. Ill be adding my name to it as well!

“SIR – We respect the Prime Minister’s right to his religious beliefs and the fact that they necessarily affect his own life as a politician. However, we object to his characterisation of Britain as a “Christian country” and the negative consequences for politics and society that this engenders.

Apart from in the narrow constitutional sense that we continue to have an established Church, Britain is not a “Christian country”. Repeated surveys, polls and studies show that most of us as individuals are not Christian in our beliefs or our religious identities.

At a social level, Britain has been shaped for the better by many pre-Christian, non-Christian, and post-Christian forces. We are a plural society with citizens with a range of perspectives, and we are a largely non-religious society.

Constantly to claim otherwise fosters alienation and division in our society. Although it is right to recognise the contribution made by many Christians to social action, it is wrong to try to exceptionalise their contribution when it is equalled by British people of different beliefs. This needlessly fuels enervating sectarian debates that are by and large absent from the lives of most British people, who do not want religions or religious identities to be actively prioritised by their elected government.”

  1. You appear to be propagandists for foreign interests, countries, a foreign ideology, be aware of that if you are brought before the courts at some time in the future.

    1. Im sorry old chap but I havent got a clue what you are getting at, what’s your point? Very little good comes from religion I’m afraid and its not a big vote winner either.
