UK is no longer Christian country and shouldn’t act like it, says judge

A major inquiry into religion in modern society, led by former senior judge Barnoness Butler-Sloss, has called for public life in Britain to be de-Christianised.

The two-year report found a decline in church goers – but a rise in Islam and other faiths – was the reason for a steep decline in Christianity.

The findings have provoked fury among Cabinet ministers who say it is “seriously misguided, while the Church of England said it had been “hijacked” by humanists.

Compiled by the Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life, the report suggested faith schools should be stripped of powers to select their own pupils because they are “socially divisive”.


That’s right, throw the baby out with the bathwater…

These recommendations won’t stop Islam, that djinn is out of the bottle.

    No matter how many Britons get blown up, beheaded, or have their throats slashed by Mohammedans, Christianity is the evil that needs to be stamped out.

      Let’s not kid ourselves the political left is cheering from the sidelines when the radical Islamists shout “First comes Saturday, then comes Sunday”. The political left and their elite leaders hate Judaeo-Christian values and the people who stand for them with a religious passion.

    For years I would have my toes held to the fire because of supposed atrocities done in the name of Christ; that I was part of a violent and immoral ideology. And now here I am in 2015 and another overtly violent and immoral ideology dominates the secular west but they are declared as innocent as doves. I think it’s because they recognize their own.

      It was never, and still is not, about truth or logic for these people. They have an agenda and when the truth suits that agenda, they will use it; if it does not, they abandon it. To them, truth and logic are nothing but tools of convenience.

    The genie has been let out of the bottle a long time ago.

    The Church of England claims it was hijacked by humanists? Isn’t the Church of England the one that’s embarrassed to defend converts like the Pakistani family that converted to Christianity and is now being harassed by Muslims? It’s as if they expected to be able to hang on to their cushy jobs without having to actually make the case for Christianity or defend Christians. They need to wake up and smell the coffee.

    The left believes in submission, so you know what side they are likely to take. But yes, Britain is to a large extent post-Christian. However that does not mean it can be all things to all people. Being post-Christian still means being Christian in various secularized ways. The left knows this and they fear and want to ward off chances of a religious revival.

    The Muslim demonization and eradication of non-Muslims will also target all non-religious folks — like me.

    In under 3 years the UK will formally adopt Islamic Autonomous Regions in the UK. Non Muslims will be told to convert or to leave their homes if they happen to live in one. And if they do neither they will be harassed or killed outright and it will all be above board legally since those regions will be subject to sharia alone.

    The report was composed on behalf of an ‘ecumenical institute’ operating out of Cambridge University. It’s a rather unchristian collection of ‘study groups’ specialising in anti-Christian propaganda.

    While the majority of British may not be church-going, they remain culturally Christian. The bulk of all holidays are based on Christianity the same as in all Western countries (Israel the exception being based on Judaism). Why would the majority want to attend church, when both the Church of England and the Catholic Church under the present pope have pretty much abandoned Christianity?
