Skip to comments.Western culture celebrated today at the royal wedding

Instead of spending another day immersed in Middle Eastern names, culture, religion, death and destruction, the world was treated to western culture, etiquette and a Christian gathering in the House of the Lord, to celebrate the marriage of a man and a woman who love one another.
It was a beautiful ceremony, in a beautiful setting.
It was uplifting. It was a happy, joyous day.
I wish the newlyweds a loving and productive life.
Queen Elizabeth can take a bow now that the British royal family will be in good hands after she's gone.
not a fan of ‘The Royals’...
...the wife had it on and I was pleasantly surprised to hear the name of Christ spoken reverently and often during the ceremony.
What’s up with the trees INSIDE a church?
It was like a billboard saying to a world so occupied with religions bent on killing Christians, that we are alive and well, thank you very much.
Well said. Your sentiments resonate even to those of us who have no particular interest in the event.
they’re being planted outside after the wedding
Except for all the cops stationed along the entire parade route holding those high-powered weapons. I do not recall them being present at Lady Di’s wedding.
The trees were pretty — floral.
Yes, I was happy to see Christ honored there! If there were any Muslims, I didn’t see any. Just happy to see our culture was in vogue for the day!
agreed, my wife and kids wanted to watch it and I was actually enjoying it.
It made me proud and that is how it should be.
My wife missed the end so we’ll be sitting down later and seeing it and I ma looking forward to it.
It was nice to see a western country being proud and I bet the loon left were all pissed off.
saw a Saudi near the back LOL.
it is high time that we as the west took our traditions and culture, laws etc and stand by them, to be proud of them and don’t let these lunatics who hate us muslims or liberals stop us form doing so
I agree....it was beautiful! I’m Catholic and was surprised at how much the service paralleled a Catholic wedding, including mentioning Catherine of Siena and other early saints.
Kate seems to be the antithesis of Diana....very composed, calm, and rational. I doubt we’ll be hearing of any scandals associated with them in the future. Of course, she’s 29, so hopefully she knows who she is by now.
And isn’t her sister absolutely gorgeous?

You are absolutely correct. British Culture is our culture. Christianity, enlightenment, the English language, common law, habeus corpus, the scientific method, representative democracy - the British either founded all of these, or developed ancient concepts into today’s usable forms. The British Monarchy can not be separated from the nation.
Congratulations to the Brits. This spectacular event was a refreshing and uplifting contrast to the daily assult against our western sensibilities, beliefs, and customs.
It showed the savages we revere women too.
I was thinking the same thing, (though I can’t put it as eloquently as you did.) I was also looking at the beautiful old cathedral and thinking that not every culture could, or would, build such a fine and beautiful structure.
It was lovely. Perfect in every aspect. A picture of culture, decency and class and tradition. I loved the boys’ choir, the special prayer they asked for during the ceremony and the Hymn, “Jerusalem”. I wish them much happiness in their lives together.
So that’s why they won’t allow Prince William to fight in the Middle East?
It was a magnificent service and it was wonderful to see the sacrament of marriage reverently elevated to it’s proper place. It was a refreshing display of grace, class and dignity that this world sorely needed.
It was a very Christian service which affirmed the symbolism of Christ’s love of the church and that marriage is a sacrament, a divine gift of grace from God, not a right!
Totally agree. A dignified and uplifting series of events. We, as a part of Western civilization and with our roots in the all that is great in Great Britain, should be vicariously proud.
