One Anglican Bishop Has Had Enough May 28, 2008Posted by Michael in Heroes, Religion.
The collapse of Christianity has wrecked British society, a leading Church of England bishop declared yesterday.
It has destroyed family life and left the country defenceless against the rise of radical Islam in a moral and spiritual vacuum.
Vacuum? What is this vacuum of which you speak?
In a lacerating attack on liberal values, the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester, said the country was mired in a doctrine of ‘endless self-indulgence’ that had brought an explosion in public violence and binge-drinking.
In a blow to Gordon Brown, he mocked the ‘scramblings and scratchings’ of politicians who try to cast new British values such as respect and tolerance.
The Pakistani-born bishop dated the downfall of Christianity from the ‘social and sexual revolution’ of the 1960s.
Oh, that vacuum.
It’s mighty interesting that this bishop hails from an Islamic country. Maybe he knows something about the vulnerability of societies that abandon real values for phony obeisance to “respect and tolerance.”
He said Church leaders had capitulated to Marxist revolutionary thinking and quoted an academic who blames the loss of ‘faith and piety among women’ for the steep decline in Christian worship.
Dr Nazir-Ali said the ‘ newfangled and insecurely founded’ doctrine of multiculturalism has left immigrant communities ‘segregated, living parallel lives’.
Christian values of human dignity, equality and freedom could be lost as the way is left open for the advance of brands of Islam that do not respect Western values.
What Britain will earn from its abandonment of core Western values is social disintegration, racial strife, class antagonism and, finally, civil war.
You heard it here first.
Segregated, living parallel lives.
Here’s a song from the Black Crowes:
