British Prime Minister David Cameron has made a most important speech. Unsurprisingly, our media didn’t notice.
On Dec. 16, he spoke at a Christ Church, Oxford celebration of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. He proclaimed the Bible as still relevant, and admitted (confessed?) that Britain is in a very real sense a “Christian Nation” He further articulated the Christian origins of modern values such as equality, human rights, and morality. He also offered a sharp critique of modern “diversity” doctrines which have changed moderate tolerance into a disastrous abdication of responsibility.
I am grateful to George J. Marlin at The Catholic Thing (www.thecatholicthing.org) for shining light on this speech. Marlin’s analysis is excellent, as is the rest of TCT.
