This National Leader Declares “We Are A Christian Country”

April 12th, 2015
Controversy

A European leader offered a rare and bold Easter video message last weekend filled with affirmations directed towards the Christian church. It could sound a bit strange to some people – only because such words don’t seem to be clearly stated in public much at all these days.

The central theme of this leader’s two-minute-and-25-second address was that his nation is “a Christian country.”

Who offered this inspirational message? British Prime Minister David Cameron.

“Easter is a time for Christians to celebrate the ultimate triumph of life over death in the resurrection of Jesus. And for all of us, it’s a time to reflect on the part that Christianity plays in our national life.

“The church is not just a collection of beautiful, old buildings; it is a living, active force doing great works across our country. Across Britain, Christians don’t just talk about ‘loving thy neighbor,’ they live it out in faith schools, in prisons, in community groups.

“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.”

This is a rare and refreshing instance of a Western leader standing strong for Judeo-Christian values, especially in these politically-correct, anti-Christian times we live in. Especially with the cultural invasion of Islam into western Europe.

    America is a nation with many different faith-traditions. The vast majority of Americans are
    honest, decent, civilly obedient, tax-paying citizens. That includes several thousand Christian denominations, several large Jewish denominations, millions of law-abiding
    Muslim believers in one God, and people of other, large world religions.
    Jesus Christ (Y’shua, in His native Hebrew language), teaches that those about us, if
    they are not against us, then they are for us. LEAVE THEM ALONE.
    Those who would say, as did Rubio, that “what America needs are the teachings of
    the Catholic Catechism, do not understand that many truly Protestant believers in
    Jesus Christ, hold doctrinal beliefs which are quite different than does the RCC.
    /We need to go back to the words of the Framers of the Constitution, and it’s
    First Amendment and, first, choose to always allow the full non-establishment
    Clause it’s primary place in American life. No caveats!
    Then, we need, as a people, to formulate foreign policy that forces our government
    to honor the rights of other nations to form their own style of governments, regardless
    of whether we like those governments or not, and stop using military force to “democratize” governments in only those countries whose lands contain the natural
    resources our OIL and Natuaral Gas Corporations want easy, cheap access to, all to
    enhance their own profits. This has been the historic way our government has operated
    overseas in the past. We got most of it from our British “allies.”
