    Cameron causes row over British religion !

    David Cameron ‘fuelling sectarian division by bringing God into politics'

    Dozens of public figures accuse David Cameron of fostering alienation and division with a call to view Britain as a Christian country.

    David Cameron is sowing sectarianism and division by insisting that Britain is "still a Christian country” an alliance of writers, scientists, philophers and politicians has claimed.

    In a letter to The Telegraph, 55 public figures from a range of political backgrounds accuse him of fostering “alienation” and actively harming society by repeatedly emphasising Christianity.

    The group, which includes writers such as Philip Pullman and Sir Terry Pratchett, Nobel Prize winning scientists, prominent broadcasters and even some comedians argue that members of the elected Government have no right to “actively prioritise” religion or any particular faith.

    I suppose that historically Britain has been recognised as a "Christian country" and for those that follow that religion that is fine, but as Britain has become a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and a multi-religious society, I too think that the political pundits and especially David Cameron should keep their political noses OUT OF religion for fear of fomenting religious division and sectarian hatred.

    What say you ?

    Politics and religion should never mix and I am sure that Cameron already knows this.

    Dead right HG, and a saying that was going about at the time of the second world war of: "The politicians make the wars and by giving their lives the soldiers on the ground end the wars".

    Nowadays, wars are more driven by politicians and religious fundamentalists, together, and it is the millions of innocent people in all of these countries that suffer as a result.
