David Cameron, the British Prime Minister and leader of the conservative party has publicly stated that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world. He also said that the British government and people should rise up and stand against that persecution whenever and wherever it appears. I applaud his comments and hope actions are taken as needed to curb it.
David Cameron has claimed divine inspiration was at work when it came to drafting a key concept for Conservative Party policy.
Speaking last night at his Easter reception in Downing Street, the Prime Minister reportedly said he was simply doing God’s work when he launched the “Big Society” initiative of volunteering and civic responsibility.
“Jesus invented the Big Society 2,000 years ago,” Mr Cameron said. “I just want to see more of it.”
On the day that saw Culture Secretary Maria Miller resign over a furore about her expenses – despite repeatedly being back by the Prime Minister – Mr Cameron was said to have no comment on a singer’s choice of hymn: “Ave Maria”.
He went further than any recent prime minister in speaking publicly about his faith, according to the Daily Mail, and took the opportunity to offer his support to Britain’s Christian community.
“It is the case that Christians are now the most persecuted religion around the world,” Mr Cameron said. “We should stand up against persecution of Christians and other faith groups wherever and whenever we can.”
And offering his services to help the Church keep up its commitments to Jesus’s Big Society concept, he a little bizarrely compared himself to a company that unblocks drains.
David Cameron has publicly stated that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world. Christians need to open their eyes to see what’s going on and to stand against it. Attacks on Christians are rising around the world and something needs to be done about it now.
