David 'does God'

In the G Paper David Cameron 'does God' at No 10 Easter event
...
The prime minister, who held an Easter reception in Downing Street, quoted from the Gospel of Luke as he spoke of "we" Christians.

"This is the time when, as Christians, we remember the life, sacrifice and living legacy of Christ. The New Testament tells us so much about the character of Jesus; a man of incomparable compassion, generosity, grace, humility and love. These are the values that Jesus embraced, and I believe these are values people of any faith, or no faith, can also share in, and admire.

"It is values like these that make our country what it is – a place which is tolerant, generous and caring. A nation which has an established faith, that together is most content when we are defined by what we are for, rather than defined by what we are against. In the book of Luke, we are told that Jesus said, 'Do to others as you would have them do to you' – advice that when followed makes for a happier, and better society for everyone."

He told the assembled guests that he welcomed a Christian "fightback". He said: "I think there's something of a fightback going on, and we should welcome that. The values of the Bible, the values of Christianity, are the values that we need."

Troubled by a difficult relationship with a charisma free Chancellor and a back stabbing faction ridden party has Dave now been possessed by the unquiet spirit of Tony Blair?

Don't be so darn cynical my pet - especially at the biggest Holy Day in the Christian calendar.

Anyhoo, our blessed David isn't saying anything wrong and the whole Christian ethos etc. that Jesus taught should be accepted by the U.K. It's good to see a public figure evangelising his Faith and not being namby-pamby.

Slippery slope. Blessed are the meek, rich man eye of needle, can't serve both God and Mammon? It's political correctness gorn mad I tell you!

Aw for gawd sake, if a zilloin others can chant religous retoric in the name of their particualr chosen god and get all pissy when they see a Union flag or a cross then is it such a crime if the Prime Minister says a few Christain things? Getting fucked off with double standards....

mumble.. haauumghf... in my day... fuzzy wuzzies....

****, thought the Government had grown some and were actually going to tax the Churches.

I think you'll find that claiming to be a devout Christian is just a pre-emptive attempt to reduce criticism over some monumental piece of back-stabbing he's got up his sleeve for them.

Hang on - isn't there a vacancy in a well known church position that might suit him. 2 birds with one stone see? Avoids another beardy as Arch Bish and removes knob from No 10. I can't see a disadvantage, but I'll just check my logic .......

Given everything else going on in government this tidbit is pretty small. Clearly just a quick wink and attempt to pander to those who might actually have belief. A meaningless gesture at best.

And, please do not send the man to Canterbury. I rather enjoy the cathedral and archives and would hate to have my day binned by an inadvertent meeting. Although, he might be up for a game of Nine Men's Morris on the boards carved into the seats in the cloister.

Well given his boss (HM The Queen) is head of the CoE, I suppose he can hardly turn around on Easter and give her the finger whilst clearing the traces of easter egg chocolate off his gob.

Just as long as God doesn't tell him to invade somewhere.

And if they do, can it not be host and dusty.
