Britain is a 'post-Christian' country says former Archbishop

Britain is now a "post-Christian" country, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has said.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Lord Williams said Britain was not a nation of believers and that the era of widespread worship was over.

It comes after Prime Minister David Cameron said people in Britain should be confident of its status as "a Christian country".

Deputy PM Nick Clegg said the Church and state should be separated.

Writing in the Church Times, Mr Cameron said Christians made a difference to people's lives and should be more evangelical about it.

This prompted a group of 50 public figures to write a letter insisting that the UK was "a non-religious" and "plural" society and that to claim otherwise fostered "alienation and division".

Those simplistic Christian ideas of fair play, honesty, and individual freedom are just so passe’, these days.

Where I suppose it points to where Christianity is holding up and it’s probable redoubt — the U.S.

According to Obama’s statements, the USA is also post-Christian.

Because we are post-Christian. Our culture doesn’t bare out we are Christian.

Rowan Williams should know. That’s been his goal for years.

David Cameron calls for more evangelical Christianity. But his favorite mission is spreading the gospel of gay marriage — an abomination in the Bible.

“According to Obama’s statements, the USA is also post-Christian.”

His two elections, and the existence of the Democratic Party, should have been all the proof one needs. There is nothing remotely Christian about the US today (and that was done by design).

Isn’t the queen of England the head of the church in that country?

Will she soon be required to wear a burqa?

Britain is now a "post-Christian" country

But it's still a country of faith - and that faith is Islam.

I guess the ruling elites in the UK didn't think that the vacuum would be filled....

Rowan Williams is sort of post-Christian himself, isn’t he?
