Christian Concern has questioned Prime Minister David Cameron’s pro-Christian statements, in the light of his unbiblical stance on gay marriage.
In a speech last December, marking the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, Mr Cameron claimed the UK was a Christian country ‘and we should not be afraid to say so’.
He also called on the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, to stand up more for the Christian faith in this nation — perhaps ironically, as Dr Williams would then be standing up against some of Mr Cameron’s government’s policies.
In her blog, Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Concern, said, ‘What did come as a surprise and has generated a lot of comment was his assertion that Britain is a Christian country.
‘This in itself is not controversial. So much of what underlies our laws, institutions and monarchy is explicitly Christian. However, I find myself perplexed in light of his own expressed views on other occasions and the actions of his Government so far’.
Andrea Williams highlighted comments made by Mr Cameron in March 2011, when he said Christians should be more tolerant and welcoming to homosexuality. Then, in October’s party conference speech, Mr Cameron said he wholeheartedly backed extending the definition of marriage to include homosexual couples.
