Baroness Warsi has urged Britain to embrace faith through being a country that is proud of religion.
Ignore the Torygraph spin in their headline by Christopher Hope who ridiculously attempts to smear Warsi by claiming she as a Muslim is urging Britain to be more Christian, coverage which causes in part the nutters in our community to attack her with eggs.
The context of the article is about embracing faith and since this is a Christian country it goes without saying when you are addressing the 95% of the population who are nominal Christians what she is urging them to do is stop the drift towards secularism and cynicism which has and continues to destroy the fabric of a cohesive society.
The difficulty of course is when a Muslim attempts to overcompensate by telling a Christian nation to go back to its roots, all manner of hostile characters including Muslims will point the finger at her being a Christian rather than a Muslim. In reality, Warsi is pointing the finger at a Christian nation and saying shame on you for abandoning your faith. As a result, her message is a return to Christian values of tolerance will see a healthier attitude and discourse towards all Minorities negating the ability of the EDL to flourish which is why I support her in urging faith to be a central tenet for an individual and society.
*Update* Warsi should have spoken about the Chauffeur - driven Bishop of London and a Church who refuse sanctuary for peaceful protesters as perhaps one reason why so many are giving up on what has become an international corporation in the best traditions of Godfather 3 and its depiction of the shady manner the Vatican deals with its finances.
