Liberals up in arms over British PMs 'Christianity message'

(London)  In the UK, it has become very fashionable to denigrate Christianity in the name of multiculturalism Years of left-wing propaganda: Islam is a religion of peace, white people are evil, Socialism is the answer to everything has left a very confused landscape where people are fearful of saying (or doing) anything which the thought police deem as verboten and thus ensuring that the guilty party is sent away for political indoctrination and it seems that being the Prime Minister of the Uk doesn't defend you from the wrath of these tofu eating,sandal wearing, veggie eating self appointed champions of the left. Last week David Cameron in an article for the Church Times wrote:

Some people feel that in this ever more secular age we shouldn't talk about these things. I completely disagree. I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organisations, and, frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people's lives.

First, being more confident about our status as a Christian country does not somehow involve doing down other faiths or passing judgement on those with no faith at all. Many people tell me it is easier to be Jewish or Muslim in Britain than in a secular country precisely because the tolerance that Christianity demands of our society provides greater space for other religious faiths, too.

Crucially, the Christian values of responsibility, hard work, charity, compassion, humility, and love are shared by people of every faith and none - and we should be confident in standing up to defend them.

People who, instead, advocate some sort of secular neutrality fail to grasp the consequences of that neutrality, or the role that faith can play in helping people to have a moral code. Of course, faith is neither necessary nor sufficient for morality.
Well guess what, the left have become incandescent with rage over the above message, and today they wrote on mass an open letter berating the PM for his message: I quote:
We respect the Prime Minister’s right to his religious beliefs and the fact that they necessarily affect his own life as a politician. However, we object to his characterisation of Britain as a “Christian country” and the negative consequences for politics and society that this engenders.
 Apart from in the narrow constitutional sense that we continue to have an established Church, Britain is not a “Christian country”. Repeated surveys, polls and studies show that most of us as individuals are not Christian in our beliefs or our religious identities.
At a social level, Britain has been shaped for the better by many pre-Christian, non-Christian, and post-Christian forces. We are a plural society with citizens with a range of perspectives, and we are a largely non-religious society.

Yes the champions of the left who over the years have done much to erode the civil society which is the Uk, complain yet again about a faith they know will turn the other cheek. The very same people who remain silent on the intolerable actions of Islam in the Uk: (Rape,Murder,bigotry,political Gerrymandering,Drug dealing,Nepotism,Relgious intolerance, Animal cruelty)  are quickly offended by a message that professes nothing but good will. But hey don't take my word for it, here are some of those self appointed champions of the left:

Peter Tatchell: Australian Gay rights campaigner who is behind a motion to lower the age of consent for gay men to...14 and an apologist for radical Islamic homophobes.

Polly Toynbee: A leftwing critic who while professing her hatred for wealth, has no problem sending her children to fee paying private schools or even owning a villa in Italy.

Tim Minchin: Australian (bad) comic

CJ de Mooi: A quiz show panellist.

Dan Snow, a  TV show presenter

Nick Ross, a  TV show presenter

Funny enough, a vast majority of the signatories have very strong connections to the British (And Christianity) hating bBC funny that?
