Maybe the Blokes are coming around… ahead of us

British Prime Minister’s office has a website where, like our own president, they publish speeches, policies, and what not.  It makes an interesting read.  PM David Cameron recently spoke at Oxford’s Christ Church on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the completion of the 1611 King James Bible.  You can read the full text of his speech here.  I just wanted to relay to you one of his key statements about Great Britain: We are a Christian nation, and we should not be afraid to say so.

It’s true, Cameron curtsied in the general direction of multi-culti pride in all the various religions that infest Britain.  Our politicians do the same thing over here.  Still, he conjoined two words which set Western liberals moonbat crazy, “Christian” and “nation.”

Wouldn’t it be great if Cameron’s little nick in liberalism worked like a crack in Scrat’s iceberg and split the whole civilization into pieces with continents drifting and oceans sloshing?  True, the British expression of the faith has not always been warm and cuddly.  In fact, the man most responsible for the 1611 King James Bible was William Tyndale, and Tyndale was hounded out of England into Germany where he was eventually murdered for the crime of translating the Bible into English.

But Christianity eventually prevailed — along with reason — and Britain became a great Christianizing force throughout the world.  No, that’s not to approve of everything the British did in all of their colonies.  But on the whole, the world was better off because Britain civilized so much of it, and the civilizing came about because of Britain’s people generally knew the Bible and submitted to it.  As Cameron quoting Thatcher said, “we are a nation whose ideals are founded on the Bible.”  Indeed, and that’s what put the Great in front of Britain.
