So apparently former ABofC Lord Carey has criticised PM David Cameron for “marginalising Christians” and promoting “aggressive secularism” despite Cameron’s insistence of the UK being a “Christain country” and talking up “Christianity’s profound contribution” to the nation (and the fac he has just appointed an evangelical Christian as his Parliamentary Advisor).
Now I was going to make comment about the fact that secualrism is actually a good and necessary thing to protect those who are not Christian, but it seems Carey has no concern for them, but I won’t. Nor am I going to comment that Carey’s bleating complaints sound like someone desperately trying to retain his religions undeserved, unnecessary and unfair priviledge (because let’s face it Christianity is not true!). I’m also not going to bang on about his misrepresenation of the ComRes poll stating that apparently two thirds of Christians in the country feel “persecuted”. Nor his continued obsesssion with homosexuality and his opposition to giving LGBT the right to legally marry.
I was going to question what Carey even meant by secularism being aggressive, maybe it’s that it is beinf successful. Iwas until I saw this wonderful rebuttal by Dean Burnett in the Guardian. Enjoy!
