Someone’s Not Listening To What The Boss Is Saying…

David Cameron has declared that Britain is built on “Christian values” – and must defend them against terrorism.

In his message to mark the Christian festival of Easter, the Prime Minister said the religion had “helped to make our country what it is today” and that its values appealed to people “of every faith and none”.

“Values of responsibility, hard work, charity, compassion and pride in working for the common good and honouring the social obligations we have to one another, to our families and our communities,” he said.

“These are values we treasure. They are Christian values and they should give us the confidence to say yes, we are a Christian country and we are proud of it.

“But they are also values that speak to everyone in Britain – to people of every faith and none. And we must all stand together and defend them.”

Meanwhile, elsewhere…

A Christian magistrate who was sacked after voicing his opposition to adoption by same-sex parents has been suspended as a non-executive director by an NHS trust.

Richard Page, who sat on the family bench in Kent, was struck off after telling the BBC in March 2015: “My responsibility as a magistrate, as I saw it, was to do what I considered best for the child, and my feeling was therefore that it would be better if it was a man and woman who were the adopted parents.”

Andrew Ling, chairman of the Kent and Medway NHS and social care partnership trust (KMPT), has written to the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) requesting the suspension of the 69-year-old.

    Are they saying it’s NOT better to have a man and a woman as the adoptive parents?

      Yes. It’s ‘judgmental’, apparently. Which I rather thought was the whole point of religion…

    responsibility:
    “Take no thought for the morrow…”
    hard work:
    “Consider the lillies, neither do they toil or spin…”
    charity, compassion:
    OK I’ll give him those
    and pride:
    One of the seven deadly sins.

    There are barely any parliamentarians who have the slightest clue about ‘Christian values’, and for the PM to stand and spout that stuff is sheer hypocricy.

      Couldn’t agree more! How Cameron can seemingly be blind to the slow but inevitable destruction of our Christian culture by HIM and his ilk, to be replaced by Islam – I simply cannot understand.

        Why assume he’s blind to it? Makes more sense to believe he isn’t.

    It’s just a speech.
    He doesn’t mean it any more than any actor playing a part in a fantasy adventure.
