Britain’s Cameron: Britian Is a "Christian Country"

British Prime Minister David Cameron has sent atheists and leftists into a rage by asserting that Britain is a Christian country.  In a speech commemorating the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, which Cameron called, with Shakespeare, the zenith of the English language, he declared that the Bible is important for three reasons, the third being that Britain “is a Christian country.”

 

British Prime Minister David Cameron has sent atheists and leftists into a rage by asserting that Britain is a Christian country.

In a speech commemorating the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, which Cameron called, with Shakespeare, the zenith of the English language, he declared that the Bible is important for three reasons, the third being that Britain “is a Christian country.”

Cameron was not speaking literally, given that Britain is hardly a “Christian” country in the sense that most of its subjects attend Christian services or defend the faith. He was, clearly, speaking of the country’s historic character and culture, or what remains of them.

The Speech
The King James Bible, Cameron said, is the cornerstone of British culture, and its publication might be the most significant moment in British history given all that it has meant to the world, not least in transmitting settled Christian truth. “The Bible is a book that has not just shaped our country, but shaped the world,” Cameron said, speaking as a “vaguely practising” Christian but one “who will stand up for the values and principles of my faith.”
