Alliance of writers and scientists angry with Prime Minister David Cameron for insisting Britain is a ‘Christian country’
Is the Queen not the titular head of Great Britain? And is one of her titles not "the Defender of the Faith"? Has Britain not been instrumental in the propagation of the Christian faith for centuries? Of course it is right to characterize Britain as a Christian country.
If the UK was 59% avowed secularists, had a 1500 year history of institutional secularism, and the PM characterized the UK as a secular country, would these same people be complaining about him sowing sectarianism and division against others, i.e., persons of faith?
Hey, isn't there a cross somewhere in that flag?
