Poor Mr Cameron is in trouble because he has said that Britain is a Christian country and that we ought not be afraid to say so. He admitted that he had vague views about the Christian faith, virtually admitting that he himself was not a Christian although he admired Christian values. He went as far as to say, “But what I am saying is that the Bible has helped to give Britain a set of values and morals which make Britain what it is today.”
A contributor to BBC News website added his/her own views:
40 years ago I was taught RE in a secondary school. It was the Christian faith we discussed. Though I cannot claim to be a Christian, much of what I was taught has been useful in my adult life. The value system of honesty, belief in right and wrong, of standing up for what you believe in and much more works today, as it did then. The only trouble is that RE isn’t taught like that now. It’s not PC.
What chance DFID agreeing with the PM and offering TASTE funding for our projects because we are explicitly Christian?
What’s that I see in the darkened sky outside? Pink, four legged creatures flying …..
