David Cameron says Christian foster care ruling was right
Owen and Eunice Johns had applied to be foster carers but their application was put on hold by Derby City Council after the couple said they would not be able to promote the homosexual lifestyle.
In response to a request by both parties for clarification on the law, the High Court ruled last week that the Council was within its rights to refuse Christian foster carers on the basis of their attitudes towards human sexuality.
Asked by the Derby Telegraph what he made of the ruling, the Prime Minister expressed his support.
‚ÄúI think Christians should be tolerant and welcoming and broadminded.‚ÄĚ...
Well, having spurned the "good cop" (i.e. Christianity), Western homosexuals and their sympathizers will sooner or later have to deal with the "bad cop" (i.e. Islam) which is rapidly waxing in power and numbers throughout Europe.
Unless by some miracle these immigrant Muslims can be sufficiently liberalized, as their Christian predicessors were, things are going to get VERY nasty over there for those of the so-called "alternative lifestyle" persuasion.
I was struck in reading the article and the comments with Rev 3:15-22
"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
"I think Christians should be tolerant and welcoming and broadminded."√ā¬†...david Cameron This Is not tolerance but rather militant homosexuality, I have a relative that is a social worker and christians normally care for there children better because they know the grace of god and give it to there children, not only that it means less foster carers in the community as Christians tend to foster care compared to the average person in the united kingdom. The government is shooting themselves in the foot because they are getting rid of the very people who do foster care. What I am not saying is that people who are unbelievers have a tendency to be good foster carers as they do Another point does that mean we now have thought police because as Christians we are not allowed to express our own views
I believe a large part of the problem is The Prime Minister hasn`t been taught in his education of where the UK has come from. From accepting The Bible as the Nation`s underlying foundation to a Nation cut adrift from that authority and accepting man`s beliefs built on sand. Sadly, no Winston to help.
I wouldn't go so far as to say Cameron is not a Christian, nor would I go as far to say that he believes the homosexual lifestyle is alright. He couldn't very well say anything else, or he himself would fall foul of the discrimination laws.
But I think we do have a prime minister who is prepared to sit on the fence and let honest, law-abiding Christians hang just for standing up for their beliefs.
‚ÄúI think Christians should be tolerant and welcoming and broadminded.‚ÄĚ
David Cameron also said.
When asked if faith in God was important to him, Mr Cameron replied: ‚ÄúIf you are asking, do I drop to my knees and pray for guidance, no. ‚ÄúBut do I have faith and is it important, yes. My own faith is there, it‚Äôs not always the rock that perhaps it should be. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve a sort of fairly classic Church of England faith, a faith that grows hotter and colder by moments,‚ÄĚ he continued."
Clearly Prime Minister Cameron is a Liberal - which of course means he is not a Christian. A faith which "grows hotter and colder" is no more true faith than the sinners natural state is. Obviously Mr Cameron does not believe the Bible.
Some commentators have said.
The Times religion correspondent Ruth Gledhill described Mr Cameron as doing God in a ‚Äúfuzzy, sort-of-Anglican‚ÄĚ way.
Theo Hobson of The Spectator said Mr Cameron‚Äôs words sounded like ‚Äúan attempt at having it both ways: I‚Äôm a believer, but just a gentle agnostic one‚ÄĚ.
He summarised Mr Cameron‚Äôs position on religion as ‚Äúdetermined to seem pro-God but not in a way that will cost him votes‚ÄĚ.
