David Cameron, prime minister of the United Kingdom, released an Easter video message to Britons. While the two-and-a-half minute speech touched on a number of themes, one of the core sentiments Prime Minister Cameron relayed was that the United Kingdom was a “Christian country.”
“Easter is a time for Christians to celebrate the ultimate triumph of life over death in the resurrection of Jesus,”Prime Minister Cameron’s address began.
“And for all of us, it’s a time to reflect on the part that Christianity plays in our national life.”
He then touched upon the role of the church in British life.
“The church is not just a collection of beautiful, old buildings; it is a living, active force doing great works right across our country,”
“When people are homeless, the church is there with hot meals and shelter. When people are addicted or in debt, when people are suffering or grieving, the church is there.
“I know from the most difficult times in my own life that the kindness of the church can be a huge comfort.”
Cameron also added that the Bible plays a critical role in the British character.
“Across Britain, Christians don’t just talk about ‘loving thy neighbor’, they live it out in faith schools, in prisons, in community groups,” the prime minister said.
“And it’s for all these reasons that we should feel proud to say, ‘This is a Christian country.’ Yes, we’re a nation that embraces, welcomes and accepts all faiths and none, but we are still a Christian country.” (H/T TheBlaze)
Notably absent from Cameron’s speech was any language blaming Christians for the Crusades and telling them to get off their “high horse” like Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast.
It’s worth pointing out that Cameron that the leader of the Tories, a party whose most conservative leaders would be considered RINOs at best were they in the colonies. He also leads a country far less religious than ours.
Yet, he can make that statement while our president feels he cannot.
If that doesn’t tell you all you need to know about Barack Obama, I’m not certain what will.
