How can David Cameron claim that England is a Christian nation when more than 50% of the population claim to have no belief in any god?
He reminds me of one of my old lecturer's, to be honest. He, and the current PM, are adept at seeing society as they'd like it to be as opposed to how it is. I also think he (DC) would like to summon votes from the gay community (re: same sex marriage) he couldn't summon a sufficient majority two years ago, he has no chance 3 years doen the line.
Shame really, I'd like to see him support gay marriage for the right reasons, not because they'll be scrambling for votes.
I wonder if he may be referring to Christian heritage, as much as Christian belief?
Since we (UK) have become such a multicultural nation, and the cultures of all groups are to be respected, then it makes sense that the 'home' culture should be honoured and respected at least as much as the cultures of minority groups.
It may be that this is what Cameron is talking about, perhaps
And he is the current PM
