Britain is a 'post-Christian' country
Britain is now a "post-Christian" country, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has said.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Lord Williams said Britain was not a nation of believers and that the era of widespread worship was over.

I disagree with him.

I think my generation is simply not interested in waking up on a sunday at 7 am to spend an hour in a cold and wet medieval building, when we could insteat wake up at 1 pm in a strangers bed.

Religion in Europe has simply retreated into private 4 walls and nobody wants to be bothered by people who try to press some faith on to you.

In terms of specifically practicing Christianity in a traditional sense though, he's right Smile

Reminds me of that bit in Life of Brian...

"Thanks for the art, music and architecture... But don't bother too much with the murder, ignorance and bigotry next time."

Stop the swearing on a bible bullshit and then it will be.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Hahaha yeah!

I was recently watching some old BBC talkshow footage on YouTube of the Monty Python team discussing Life of Brian with prominent church leaders of the time. It's brilliant. I bet John Clease and co are loving this current upset! Thumbsup

Cheer up Rowan... Some fings in life are bad, they can really make you mad. Other fings just make you swear and curse.

When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle. And this'll help fings turn out for the best.

Ayyyynnnnnndddd.....
