Revd Paul Nicolson: "David Cameron is highly selective about the kind of Christianity he believes in"
Guest blog piece by Revd Paul Nicolson of Taxpayers Against Poverty
DAVID CAMERON'S CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN IS REPORTED IN MANY PAPERS TO DAY - HERE IS A COMMENT FROM MYSELF - SUNDAY IS EASTER DAY FOR US CHRISTIANS - A DAY WHEN WE CELEBRATE OUR FAITH THAT LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN DESPITE ALL THE EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY - HAPPY EASTER
David Cameron is highly selective about the kind of Christianity he believes in and, as he says, a bit vague about the more difficult parts of the faith. He has experienced the healing power of the Church but says nothing about the crucifying power of the State. People are hungry not because the charities have failed to feed them but because Parliament has passed laws which mean the poorest citizens cannot pay the rent and keep warm at the same time as buy food and cook it.
The difficult part of Christianity is in the crucifixion of its founder by the State. His teaching urged us all to love the poorest, marginalized and excluded people first, before the rich and powerful, and in every thing we do, including law making. Most of the rulers of the time also found that difficult to stomach.

He said “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
