-Britain Not Christian Enough? So Says Muslim Cabinet Minister

British cabinet minister Baroness Sayeeda Warsi says that British society has increasingly become far too intolerant of religious views and expressions:

“We need to create a country in which people can be unashamedly proud of their faith – where they don’t feel that they have to leave religion at the door. That means being proud of Christianity, not downgrading it.”

Surprisingly, Baroness Warsi is not only the co-chair of the ruling Conservative Party but also a practicing Muslim. There has been such a push lately in Britain to support ‘multi-culturalism’ and a more secular society that many suppose that strong religious beliefs, including a strong Christian faith, just gets in the way:

“It is a mistake to assume that you compromise your identity the more you try to understand others. The stronger your understanding of your neighbour, the stronger your own religious identity becomes. For many years, I have been saying that the stronger we are as a Christian nation, the more understanding we will be of other faiths.”

“But as a proud British, Muslim, Conservative woman – one who has the privilege of serving her country as the first Muslim in full Cabinet – take it from me: there is nothing incompatible about a world of many religions and one of strong, vibrant nation states.”

Response: It is really refreshing to find a major political leader that understands that strong Christian beliefs actually result in increased tolerance rather than the other way around. If a church leader in the UK said something like this it would be ignored but coming from a Muslim woman gives it far more credibility.

We say amen to Baroness Warsi’s definitive statement:

“…the stronger we are as a Christian nation, the more understanding we will be of other faiths.”

British society has been turning its back on its own Christian heritage and history for a whole generation now and in the process they are in danger of losing their identity as a nation. If Britain is not a Christian nation anymore than what are they, a ‘multi-cultural’ collection of segmented separated communities?  Secular Brits here, royals there, and oh yes, the do not go Muslim zones.          *Top
